“Don't even think about it !!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

Dear future travellers,

Despite of a negative title, the good thing about HOST INN is VERY NICE ROOM :-).
I stayed for two days during Mar 2013. They got me a front facing room which was well ventilated, facilities were good and clean bathroom.
I reached the front entrance around 8 am and found it locked. There was no sign of any guard or any FOA. It made me feel like "unwelcomed". No one responded on repetitive knocking. I called on landline and some pathetic assistant answered me in a frustrated voice that "front door is closed, please use rear entrance" !!! What a way to welcome a guest !!!
The back entrance was a kitchen and the surrounding area smelled like a public urinal place. I was taken through a narrow spiral staircase to the reception. The FOA gave me the most disgusted look. When I complained about the "welcome", then he didn't even bothered to reply and thrust the register on my face.
While checking out, I was getting late to catch the train. I requested the FOA to prepare the bill while I pack my things. He didn't even listened to me and in a hurry overcharged me. On my way back, I found one pair of clothes missing which I realised I left in the wardrobe of my hotel room. I called the FOA, to deliver the clothes in my residential address. The FOA said, he found no clothes in my room. The clothes were brand new and apparently, the room attendant, cleaner or FOA might have stolen the clothes or sold it.
This was such a WORST EXPERIENCE for me. I could have launched a complaint against the hotel but anyways.....
I would recommend to all the people who are reading this NOT TO STAY IN THIS HOTEL.
WORST PLACE.

I stayed with my family last week and booked 2 room by Yatra.com. paid full in advance. We all remained sick for 3 days since we returned. Rooms have strong smoking and annoying fragrance. We paid for breakfast inclusive, but they didn't offered even a cup of morning tea.

No power backup. One of us almost suffocated to extreme, when there was no power whole the night, even no fans were on backup. Hotel mgmt one of the most careless. Waste of money and mood, for sure ....Disappointing !!!

Room Tip: Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone....

Now Connaught Place in New Delhi is an awesome spot. It is nice to walk around, shop, eat and drink - though the latter is slightly pricey compared to other places in the city.

The bizarre experience is of course, as everyone's pointed out, the random entry to this hotel - through the restaurant. Making your way up the narrow stairs and thin doors with luggage can be a test of your physique. Inside, it feels more like someone's house rather than a hotel.

The room I had was nothing exceptional - it was windowless. The furniture was bare basic and it was just about clean. One morning I had to get out of the hotel early and had to exit through a rear entrance - it was one of the seedier, never-seen kind of a sight of the CP area. And you better have satnav to figure out where you have to go when you exit the rear entrance. Oh, to make the experience more bizarre, on the staircase landing there was a pile of what looked like poo - dog poo, I hope.

The only redeeming factor of this hotel, other than the location in CP, is the service. The crew try hard to keep you satisfied. Especially the omelette sandwiches they make in the morning for breakfast can keep you going the rest of the day. It is a depressing place and the price you pay is not exactly great value - you're paying only for the location.

Room Tip: Ask for the ones with a window. Else take one on the upper level

Haha this one is a strange one... to get to the hotel you go through a massive bronze door guarded by a pirate (not really a pirate) then thorugh a restaurant up some stiars through a bar then up some more stairs to the hotel. video ref: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lczmCLhCnSA

The room itself was quite small and stuffy with no window, the door to the cupboard half fell off, quite few cockroaches and the staff didnt speak a word of english. When trying to exchange dollars even with the rates infront of me from xe.com they were adamant it was 400Rs to the $10 and after much arguing it was 455Rs they said the 55Rs was an exchange charge - i just laughed and said 'typical'. On plus side they had nice TV, sky and the wifi was decent. Video ref: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ttJr8J4_Sw

Quick note if you want to get in or out of the hotel after midnight you have to use the back allys, see videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5P0LO9WneM & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zl-SbqWq6Q

Best location but the problem is the approach to the hotel lobby. You have to pass through the restaurant and take the back door to take a stair case to reach the rooms. food is good at the restaurant but getting a good breakfast can be difficult. Go there for the price they offer ..

I think it is one of the best budget hotels around Connaugt Place. The hotel is located above a restaurant which you have to enter to get trough the hotel.

The rooms are small but clean with normal western matrass!! Other than that there is a tv, small writing desk and AC. the bathroom is simple but clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure on the shower

Breakfast is not included but they have room service.

There are rooms with an without windows. with windows give you a few on connaugt place but are more noisy, I stayed in a room without windows but did not find it any problem.

The rate is aroun Rs 1500 per night.

Only disadvantage is that when the restaurant is closed in the evening you have to enter/exit through a rather small and dark alley. However, untill 00:00 this is not an issue at the restaurant is open

  • Liked — good matras & shower, very clean
  • Disliked — the entry/exit late at night
