“Value for money in New Delhi”
Reviewed 21 December 2009

If you are expecting just a night's sleep and a breakfast along with some handy services for travel arrangement etc., I would suggest this. The staff was good and helping. However, room sizes are small and no ventilation. Besides the location of hotel is in business area, so you may feel out of place for a while if you are used to residential like feeling however, Karolbagh metro station is very nearby to connect you to the rest of Delhi which is a plus point. Bathrooms are not done properly and water clogging is usual problem and we changed rooms for this. A lot of scope of small improvements if one wants to do. Breakfast was good and small but nice dining area at ground floor. A lot from a budget hotel.

They also helped me arranging a taxi for my Agra and Jaipur trip cost-effectively which was very comfortable indeed.

The location is convenient and provides a real experience of Old Delhi. The staff were helpful and a free transfer was arranged from the airport.

The hotel is very basic. The room was clean, but damp, and had most things promised including air conditioning and a television (no hot water though).

The roof top restaurant is not too pretty to look at but the food was good, great value and with friendly service - it’s open 24hrs which was a very nice 2am arrival welcome.

We used Ananda Hotel as a base for exploring Delhi independently - we didn’t spend much time at the hotel and we didn’t use the expensive hotel travel agent.

Bearing in mind the price and facilities, I think this hotel is good value and an acceptable budget traveller choice – at the time of booking the rate was half that of other hotels in The Connaught Place area of Delhi.

Located in Karol Bagh,this hotel was in a good jumping off point. The staff assisted me with arrangements for my trips to Agra, Jaipur and Haridwar. I found the room to be clean and attractive and theprice was more than right.

Nice, clean hotel near the shopping streets of Karol Bagh.

The staff were helpful and the hotel had a car and driver that we hired for daytrips and airport pick-up/dropp-off.

Only 5 minutes walk to the busy market-streets were we did the most of our shopping.

We reserved two rooms at Hotel Ananda a month in advance.
We exchanged some emails, including their confirmation email, our flight information email, and a reconfirmation email that we sent two days prior to our arrival date.
Things went smoothly UNTIL the night we arrived at Delhi airport.

We finally got to Delhi, filled with excitement and anxiety from our long flight....only to find out that we no longer had our reservation for the night.
(Needless to say, there was nobody from the hotel at the airport, although the hotel had guaranteed that they would send somebody for us.)
The hotel's excuse was that all their rooms were sold out the night (!!!) and that we were going to be taken to another "upgraded" hotel.
We had no choice but to wait for another driver to come pick us up at the airport for a long while, just to go with a random driver who claimed to be sent by Hotel Ananda, and let him drive us to a hotel somewhere in New Delhi that we had no idea about.
We do not know whether our alternative hotel was actually an "upgrade" since we had no chance to go see Hotel Ananda to compare them during our stay in Delhi.

What a terrible hotel!!!!! There is nothing I can say good about this hotel. My family and myself reached at this hotel at 1.15am. Having travelled for a long time we just wanted to sleep. At the reception they were fine. They told us the basic information we needed to know and led us to the room. When we opened the room door, we were in a great shock. The room stunk of damp and the walls and ceiling was covered with moulds. My husband went down and told the reception if we could change the room because it really stunk. But they told him to adjust the night and that they will sort another room the next day. We was so tired to argue so we thought ok it is another couple of hours so we can adjust by leaving the windows open and go to sleep. My daughter wanted to sleep. So, I opened the blanket and was horrified to see bed bugs crawling everywhere. I had goose bumps as soon as I saw them. That was the last thing we wanted to see. We packed everything and went downstairs and told them we were going to leave because there were bed bugs. They apologised immediately and didn’t want to leave us instead they gave another room ‘why did they not do that in the first place’? We had no choice but to change the room because the place was new, don’t know anybody and don’t no where to get help and it seemed a risk travelling at night with a young child so we agreed to change to a better room. The second room was fine we asked them to change the bed sheets in front of us and so they did.
The ‘roof top restaurant’ is a dump. I really don’t know why they call it a roof top restaurant. It wasn’t clean, the table and chairs were filthy, and they really really need to do something about it. We just stayed there for 3 nights and couldn’t wait to leave, only if we knew the place well we would have moved immediately we was like a person blindfolded in the middle of nowhere. Although the staffs understood the mistakes, apologised and tried to help we felt unhappy of the whole experience.

I must admit that I had a bad bad experience during my leisure time here. The hotel was undergoing some renovation and I really had to spends my nights in the seepage rooms.
I would not recommend this hotel to any traveler .
