“GOOD budget south Indian hotel”
Reviewed February 9, 2011

As the name suggests it is a typical south Indian hotel with almost 90% of the staff speaking Telugu language. The location is excellent in karol bag area from where they operate their own tour "southern travels". The rooms were not up to the expectation.The toilets & bed linen was cleaned after we checked in. Room service was worst since you need to call at least 4-5 times. The food especially breakfast was awesome a typically south Indian kitchen. Nearby bikanervala food outlet is a good vegetarian option. Gaffar market is very nearby to the hotel where we went for shopping. they also have kamat restaurent & amaravati andhra meals restaurant. One good think is that they pickup you from railway station as a complimentary service. The hotel should employ some hindi speaking people & also improve room service a lot.

Good hotel to stay and they offer a very nice trips in and out of delhi. We have taken 3 trips from their travels and the buses and are very nice, staff is polite and good.
This is the best service to see a local Delhi.

I had decided to stay at this hotel after a lot of search in the net. First let me tell you that this hotel is in a excellent location near to karol bagh market and near to Jhandewalan metro station.Those who prefer to travel with their travels (Southern Travels) and also if south indians need south indian food i recommend to stay in this hotel. During my trip i have seen lot of south indans staying here. I am also a south indian but i prefered this hotel for its location and travels. The food at restaurants are good.
Now the Bad part.. I booked a deluxe room hence i cannot comment on super deluxe or Royal suite room of theirs.The first day i saw the room i was not impressed. There are no drawers ,hardly any space in the room and bathroom fittings were rusted and old. The Bucket seemed to have my age.I had asked for another mug for toilet purpose but they never gave . So single mug for bathing and washing ur [--]. Another worst part which was furstating us was not even a single day they had kept bath towels and water in room. I had to goto reception every time and ask for it after a tiring dayout. The Frontdesk are really inefficient to manage .they just act as if they listen to my problem and say sorry. But everyday the same story. Hence i would not recommend this hotel who do not have enough patience .

The rooms were disgusting. I ended up upgrading to the top suite which I still found dirty. The walls have never been cleaned. Everything was covered in a layer of dust and dirt.
There was construction going on in the hotel until the early hours of the morning.
There is nothing around the hotel. The towels they supply you with arrive damp and are so old and moldy they should really be used for rags.You won't see any other foreigners here and there is a reason. Don't let the photos deceive you. The standing cafe next to the Lobby made surprisingly good coffee though.

At first glance, when you have been told that you will be received by Hotel car. Don't believe. Once you reach the station, the car driver (number provided by hotel) will make impression that you are late by few minutes from your scheduled arrival and they will not be bale to receive you. so this offer is almost fake.
Well! Once you reach hotel, the reception fellow will let you wait for several minutes / hrs to get the room ready and you have no choice. The most horrible part is that you will feel that you are somewhere in south India and everybody speaking Tamil/Telagu in that Hotel starting from reception to Restaurant. The north Indian cousin is available but giving almost flavor of south Indian dishes. The most funny thing is that you have to listen south Indian music in the background.
In sort, I must say that the location for this hotel is excellent but the local environment inside hotel gives the impression that it is most suitable for south Indians. If you are ready to take your lunch and dinner somewhere else without taking the notice of the environment, it can be a choice for you.

Booked for super deluxe. Was given a dirty deluxe room smelt of urine and poo. Dirty n bed looked like made after someone else had slept in. Complained but nothing was done. Was given another small room same story. Poor service smelly rooms and what's more the manager didn't give a damn. Didn't shower for 2 days as no hot water in this cold weather. Their excuse boiler not working. Food crappy. Checked out after 2 days to another better n 10/10 hotel just on the next street called walnut castle. New n very clean excellent service. My advice if u can afford extra $ 10 per day stay at walnut castle don't stay at hotel southern. Overall hotel southern is 2/10 dirty smelly n very poor service. Why go through this when u r on a holiday. N they don't want to listen n improve their service even after so
Many complains. Bad bad hotel. Worst of a kind. Be on a safe side don't even bother. I'm an indian from Australia so only advising for ur own benefit.

I just back from India. I spent 2 days in Delhi and booked this hotel through website. They arranged for airport pick up. I arrived early morning about 3 AM and checked in at hotel about 4 AM in the morning. They gave me a standard room, a bit smelly and the toilet flush didn't work. In the morning, I told them, they gave me another room and I was surprise, totally different. Clean, new, well designed, good toilet, flat screen TV and very quite for sleep. I also tried their north Indian restaurant at 1st floor, awesome, one of the best north Indian food I ever tried and it was not expensive at all. The hotel is in carol bagh area so it is easy for me just go around that place
