If you need a cheap place to stay near the New Delhi train station and metro, this is perfectly fine. I've stayed here maybe 3 or 4 times in the last few months. It is set off the main bazaar, down an alley, but this doesn't mean it's quiet unless no one else is staying there. The rooms face each other across the concrete/tile stairwell up and down four stories and you can hear everything going on everywhere else.
It looks a bit grungy but is clean enough.
A regular room without a/c for one person should be no more than 250 rupees at the time of this writing. There are larger rooms with a/c for more money.
There is an internet cafe right around the corner.
The travel agent in the lobby will not give you good deals on things unless you really haggle.
It can be hard to find. If you're walking out of the train station and straight into Paharganj, it's about 100m in. Look for a Reebok store on your right, across from which, on your left, is an alley that leads down to the Himalayan Bakery, an internet cafe, and a "Star Paradise" sign -- another Star hotel right next to the Star Palace.
Book directly with the hotel instead of going through hostel bookers: http://www.stargroupofhotels.com/html/star_palace.html
