“SCAM Hotel”
Reviewed January 11, 2011

We arrived in Delhi with a hotel already booked. Our driver drove around acting like he couldn't find our hotel and we ended up at De Holiday Inn after he said he would never be able to find our original hotel. They charged us 3000rupees for the night stay which was insanely overpriced and the guy at reception gave a look to the taxi driver when we said we would pay with a credit card. Guess it's harder for him to get the commission. The next morning, at around 6am, it only took a 60rupee ride to get to our hotel and it was not that difficult to find.

The place is incredibly dirty and I reserved my judgement until the end of our trip so I could assess it against other places we stayed. The bed had stains, the wall had stains, the bathroom had stains, the one towel they had on the bed was grey when it was obviously supposed to be white. The multitude of dogs barking outside was the worst anywhere we stayed and there was a guy clearing his throat all night. There's no internet in the hotel either.

The only pros: we got beer delivered to our room and the morning guy was actually helpful in finding our actual hotel. The taxi driver took the one print out we had with our hotel address on it so the morning reception guy called a service to find out the phone number and address of our actual hotel.

Stay away. And if a taxi driver brings you here, argue with them until they agree to bring you to your actual hotel. Had it not been our first night, we would have definitely fought harder with the driver.

We were in Holiday International and it was a very bad experience. They had lot of noise during 3 night. There was no hot water, no internet service and the room was not clean.

The service was very poor and for 1800 rs/night, it was to much expensive.

We don't recommand this hotel
Thanks,

This hotel provided basic accommodation, air conditioning was good, but no internet access is available, despite advertising otherwise. Is also much further from Connaught Place and New Delhi Railway station than advertised. Is close to a Metro station and has a convenience store next door. Staff polite and helpful but don't expect any level of accommodation above basic.

My stay at the holiday inn was for a single night. Its a big multi national presence hotel, but failed to impress with the name it carries. Staff wasnt warm at all and room service will take their own time before responding to your request. Prices are sky high compared to the services provided...

I had statyed here for a night on a store visit to our store there. This is a good place to spend few days in the capital city. The rooms are good and spacious, The food in the resturant is also good. The gym is also fine. It is worth staying more than night as i did. The service is prompt. The pool looked good. There is ample parking.

This was my first visit to India and I went with some trepidation as I speak no Hindi and have limited knowledge of local customs. An experienced traveller, having reached middle age, I do like my comfort. The hotel was recommended by one of our party.The website boasts "running hot & cold water " amongst other facilities but does not do justice to the hotel. The rooms are basic but large, clean and airy. Room service is available 24/7; the staff are all very polite and have varying proficiency in English but are so eager to please. Food is available at any time although the dish may not appear the same as it depends on the regional variation of the cook! The aloo paratha with pickles and tomato sauce washed down with lemon and ginger tea for breakfast is unsurpassable. Breakfast was taken on the rooftop balcony. Step outside the hotel and share the unpaved road with cows and dogs and you are right in the heart of Delhi. Enjoy! Excellently situated between Connaught Place and the Old City, a 5 minute walk from the Metro. I can't wait to go back.
