The Amax Inn is tucked away, just off Arakashan Road, one of the major arteries of Pahar Ganj. It's location is one of it's strengths; Pahar Ganj is well known for noise and chaos, and the Amax Inn puts you right in the middle of the action without putting you right in the middle of the noise.
I stayed at the Amax off and on throughout February and March. I had stayed in four other similarly-priced hotels in Delhi, and the Amax blew them all out of the water. The rooms are meticulously cleaned, every day, by a friendly but not pushy staff. The hot water always works, the sheets lack those mysterious stains oh-so-common in Pahar Ganj hotels, the televisions always work, and the air conditioners (if you choose an AC room) keep the rooms at a pleasant 18 degrees all day if you so choose. The hotel has a generator, so these facilities work all the time... a boon often limited to higher priced hotels.
The staff offer a range of services standard for hotels in the neighborhood. Laundry, taxi services, tour arrangement, etc.. are all available at the front desk. Unlike other hotels in Delhi, you'll never be pestered into buying a tour package or overpriced taxi ride. The services are there if you need them, without the obnoxious sales pitch. Also, they recently installed a wireless network, freeing guests from the constant search for a decent internet cafe.
The hotel restaurant is great for a bite 24 hours a day. They offer a wide range of Chinese, Continental, and Indian favorites and serve them up in a timely fashion. When you come, be sure to try some of the indian pure veg options... the Dal Makhani is amazing.
To summarize, stay at the Amax Inn. You get all of the perks of a hotel 3x the cost with none of the annoyances. The Amax is my home-away-from-home while I'm in Delhi... be sure to make it yours as well!
