“Location is not for everybody but the hotel is a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Disclaimer: My overall ranking is average - but it is a combination of a rather good hotel in a rather poor neighborhood.

Arakashan Road (the location of the hotel) is quite an untidy road (as is typical in much of Old Delhi) in the proximity of the main train station. It is certainly walkable without luggage (and we did walk, without feeling threatened) but it is true that you walk through typical dirty Old Delhi streets.

Essentially the whole Arakashan Road is just hotels, which look very similar to each other from the outside. Krishna is no exception. I have to say that after being a bit worried when walking down the street toward the hotel, the inside of the hotel turned out to be a rather pleasant surprise. Clean lobby, and a very clean and modern room, with quiet air-conditioning and clean and renovated bathroom.

Our room was on the first (one above ground) floor, facing the street - so no interesting view and we did hear street noise during the day, but solid windows and heavy curtains reduced the noise during the evening to a minimum - we certainly had no problem sleeping.

Breakfast (included in price) on the top-floor terrace was so-so, but we did not expect much given the price we paid. The hotel provides tour services at reasonable prices (we did not use them), the laundry was perfectly fine although a bit expensive for India. The staff is overall very friendly.

If you want a nice clean neighborhood, I would recommend booking a hotel in New Delhi, somewhere around or south of Connaught Place. If you don't mind the neighborhood and still want a clean bedroom and bathroom with good service at a low price (and you enjoy eating in cheap local restaurants, which are plentiful), this hotel will do perfectly fine.

P.S. - Another reviewer mentioned a digital frame at the reception that shows a welcome message with names of new guests - they really have it!

We chose the hotel because we wanted to be closer to the places we wanted to visit. But upon arrival we knew we made a mistake. The area is overcrowded with people rickshaw and animal blocking the way. It is lively and dirty. The hotel itself is clean and the reception was nice. They have a digital frame welcoming us by name which was a nice touch. Our room was not spacious but had two huge beds we asked for.The bathroom was typical Indian with no partition between the toilet and shower room except shower curtains which means once you shower the entire place is wet. The breakfast buffet was crappy and service was slow. The restaurant was roof top and hot. Plus One of the manager was eating there right under the fans when she did not even bother to turn Them on for us. Needless to say we only ate there once. Moreover we gave them our key an entire mornin. For them to clean the room but they started doing it right when we came back at around 3pm. We had to wait outside. Needless to say that we will not stay there again. I think that the place would be great for backpackers and adventurous types. But would not recommend it for families.
Ps: on the plus side, their WiFi is great.

When we first arrived we were less than impressed. Firstly we were promised a pick up at the airport. We had communicated with Mr Mrinal about all our travel plans and he had organized a driver to pick us up at the airport. We were also given the drivers name and phone number to call in case he was not there. Failing this we were also provided with a telephone number for a 24hr hotline in case we were stuck. Well the driver did not show up. When we called him he had no idea of any airport pick up. The 24 hotline number was useless even after several attempts no one picked up. We finally had to take a taxi to the hotel. When we arrived the the man on evening reception was unapologetic and just shrugged off the matter, but said we would be offered a complimentary drive back to the airport. This is fine but not really the same.
We stayed 8 nights and overall the hotel was good. The staff were polite and helpful. On day 4 we met their wonderful manager, a lovely and lively young lady (Enna) who quickly organized a better room for us and looked after us with lots of love and care. Our stay in Delhi and our experience of the hotel was made so much nicer by her. She took on board our comments and sought to change what she could. Overall our stay was pleasant and we will stay there again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as a good budget priced hotel.

This is good hotel at average price. Rooms are spacious and food is also good. The Reception Guy (partially bald) was very rude and almost misbehaved with the customers even with the ladies. Rest of the staff, housekeeping and room service is cordial and prompt. I would have rated it better but the rude reception manager is a sufficient reason to rate low.

Its a decent hotel used mostly by backpackers in New Delhi. The location of the hotel is in a crowded street but money worth. The hotel is clean and the rooms are good. The service is good too. The hotel location will be of interest for foreigners as you can take a walk and experience true life in the city in India.
