“A nice and convenient stay - Hotel Aura”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

A comfortable accommodation for a family stay with all the basic facilities and suitably situated in the heart of city. The rooms are neat and tidy. The food however is mediocre with not much variety to chose from. Also, hot water is only available on demand. It would be better to provide 24 hr running hot water. Most of the rooms do not have natural light. The hotel is situated in a very busy area on narrow lanes. Although the scene is not pleasant outside, it serves your purpose as you would not spend most of the time in the hotel except when relaxing at night. Except for some minor issues with the transport arrangements for local sight seeing, it is overall a good choice as you get your money's worth.

Room Tip: Infact there is not much to chose from as there was no choice provided / no advice in this regard.

Aura is a nice bed and breakfast hotel (under INR 3000/night) amidst the hustling busting Paharganj area closer to New Delhi Railway Station. It is a cheaper option in the heart of Delhi closer to railway/metro station as well as the lively Connaught Place (CP). The hotel was neat and clean. However, we found rooms smaller in comparison to the tariff. Being in a busy lane, there is no scope of window and in our ground floor room we could hear noises from outside. I suggest choosing rooms on 2nd or 3rd floor. No complains relating to cleanliness. Menu had bit wide choice but was priced similar to some of the nice restaurants in the CP area. I suggest you have meals in nearby lively CP area that has much more choice of restaurants and food joints. We got complimentary early check-in since the room was available. Negotiate and you would get a good deal.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd and 3rd floor...ground floor are very noisy

We stayed here for two nights for a 'little bit of luxury' at the end of our backpackers trip around Rajasthan and kerala. We were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. It seemed very strange coming across quilts on the beds but they were so cosy as the aircon felt a bit cold through the night. The bathroom was spacious, towels provided and the shower was great although the water wasn't actually warm although it should have been. Wifi connection was the best I came across during our travels.The staff were very friendly and helpful and we booked a car to Agra at the travel desk which was reasonably priced. The breakfast which was included was mediocre...nothing special but not bad either. The main issue I had was an unexpected 17.5% vat added to the bill but I should have read that in the smallprint when I booked with booking.com. Just something to be aware of. The location was fine and you cannot hear the noise from outside in the rooms. All in all a pleasant stay.

We have stayed at Hotel Aura twice and have been very glad for it both times! The rooms are clean and the beds are good. There is a very good service and the staff can and will help you with (almost) everything. Especially Rafiq Khan at the travel desk is very helpfull.

We payed small 950 rs for a delightful and romantic candle light dinner on the rooftops of this hotel.

When you come in, it is all dimmed down, only light was the candles on the tables. Just the right atmosphere for romantic lovers.

We had chicken tikka masala and chicken curry, and it was the absolute best of its kind that I've ever had in my entire life, hands down. And I love indian food, so I can easily say that I have had these dishes a lot. But it's only fair that indian food tastes the best in india, though this topped it all...

And the service was very good.

Aura was good worth the money we paid the best thing was they have gone back to using the Ac in the restaurant instead of the noisy air cooler. The rooms were clean and the service was good. Location wise we always prefer the Pahargunj area as its so close to the railway station
