I've just stayed at this hotel and felt obliged to write a review so you know what you're getting. My friend and I spent quite a while reading reviews of this and other hotels in the mid range of the lonely planet, and there were good and bad reviews for each place, it was difficult to make a choice.
The hotel is at the better end of the bazaar, where the street is a bit wider and not as grimy. Its still the bazaar though, so its dirty and busy all the time, so be prepared for that. Our room was a very large room at the top, it was quiet, with AC, a couple of fans, and even a fridge. The room itself was ok, plain with no character, but sheets and walls were clean. The staff were the friendliest that i came across in India, and seemed interested in helping us with advice on various things. We ate at the restaurants upstairs and down, and thought the food was good too. This place is by no means the Ritz, but for Delhi i think its really ok. MY first night in Delhi was spent in a smaller, cheaper hotel in the middle of the bazaar and it was quitre a nasty experience, a tiny room which felt very dirty.

I stayed at the Metropolis Tourist Home in november 2006 and didn't like the place at all. The rooms are clean, but there are no windows, no hot water and the airconditioning is very loud and doesn't really work. The rooms do have a fan aswell, but I was afraid it would come down from the ceiling and since i was lying underneath it.......

The rooftop restaurant is good.

But the worst thing about the hotel I found was the location. I thought Paharganj was cramped with hotels and guesthouses. People constantly hassle you. If I would return to Delhi (which I don't think I will) I would stay somewhere in the southern part of town. It is further from all the sightseeing spots, but in a hectic place as Delhi I think the relative calmness of a suburb is a necessarity.

I have been to the Metropolis tourist home in the Paharganj area since i wanted a mid range place and this one was supposed to be one the best in this category according to Lonely planet.

I paid 1400 rs/night(24 euros) for a very mediocre room poorly furnished. There were no amenities at all in the bathroom, there was no hot water most of the time and the shower pressure was really weak.
It was impossible to adjust the air con since it was broken.They give you only one sheet(good thing that i had mine) .There was a tiny tv.
On the good side, the room was clean and big and the rooftop restaurant is good.

Overall i had the feeling that this place was overpriced(2star price for what is really a backpacker guesthouse) and i will probably not come back to this hotel.
