When you look at the hotel by itself, it reminds you of a european style business hotel that you normally would find near an airport. Fine lines, dim lighting, color and decor being very modern and neutral. Rooms are comfortable. Everything is new so no damage. TV is hard to figure out. Internet access is only given for 2 hours then you have to ask them again. Breakfast is OK. Food prices for lunch/dinner are high. Service is slow. But overall, they accommodated all of our requests.
However, the street the hotel is located on is a slum. There is trash everywhere, with donkeys, pigs, cows...poor people right across the hotel in their tiny huts. No street lights so if it gets dark, probably not safe to walk there. Close to east gate of Taj mahal and the Mall, but nothing else. If they clean up that street/area, this hotel should be a good four-star...but for now, a 3-star is about right considering everything.
