“The Worst Delhi Experience”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The most terrible experience of my Delhi Travel.

Seeing is not believing,when you step in to the Hotel,lobby is the best attractive place but rooms are pathetic especially toilets.

Leaking toilets and age old seat covers and a very small bathroom area.


Heard this was the best Hotel years back and the management conveniently forgot about the renovation part.


They promised WIFI and after check inn they informed the WIFI is only available in the lobby area.


Its advisable only for small time traders and executives and not premium travelers.


We showed them the reviews about their hotel in Trip Advisor to the Manager and hope they will realize the value of it once .


The only convenience we had was the hotel was just near to the Delhi Metro.

Room Tip: There may be good rooms but bathrooms are terrible.

We booked two rooms, family suite and 1 room.   The Family suite was huge with 2 queen beds strategically placed to give privacy which is great for couples travelling and would prefer to remain together for convenience or costs.  

Family suite basin leaks but staff were quick to attend to it making it safe by mopping i it up and providing a mat.  It was the same with the blocked toilet in the morning a room attendant plunged the blocked toilet until it was safe to use. The hot water was warm enough to shower.  The bathroom needed some work.  

 We requested extra towels, only two were provided.  The fridge was filthy so we did not use.  Air con did not work and as we were only staying one night we did not bother find out if works or not.

We ordered room service and the Indian cuisine tasted like frozen meals zapped at our request, chicken biryani,  chicken chowmein, butter chicken. The chicken and chips surprised me it was crisps scattered on slices of tomato, radish, carrots and slices of lime.  The cheese toasted sandwich was toasted but no cheese filling and served with crisps scattered on top.

There are a few steps to  the front doors which open into the lobby.  There is also an elevator.  

The level of service provided by staff made the stay comfortable as requests made were attended to promptly.  

 Despite the bathroom issues and menu items causing confusion and amusement, I would stay here again because the beds were clean, linen and towels were white and living area was comfortable (sofas coffee tables, wardrobe and huge mirror wardrobe with lots of lighting and power points in the right places to charge your gadgets etc.)

The hotel is located in the busy and crowded street of Pahargunj. Not far from Shri Ramakrishnan Ashram Marg Metro station. The hotels lobby is good, but i guess at a price of about 2k a night one would expect better service. The room is spacious but the bathroom is quite small. The service staff are lazy, and take a lot of time attending to your call.
The AC in our room was broken and the fridge quite smelly.
The hotel however offers excellent connectivity to the important areas including the railway station and the airport. The hotel is ok for a brief stopover.

Room Tip: Try choosing the rooms opposite the roadside, and the hotel also offers a choice of better rooms alb...
