“think before you go there”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2010

the hotel has good and bad things. the good things are probably the location, it was close to my business destination and it is in a business district, kind of good for shopping and the like. another good thing is the kitchen - the food was reletively OK, though the coffee and ilk i did not like. and compared to teh proce you pay for dinner or lunch it is expensive. the confernce room is also ok and the tea and cockies they serve too.
the hotel service is not the best. i survived three days than moved t other hotel. first of all, most of the poeple who stay there are students who make a lot of noice and smoke and drink and have fun - so it is not eh best place to have rest. moreover, when you have peole smoking in the corridor and your room window is not opening - that's a bit of a challnage for a non smoker like me. service? what service. the \service people from 7AM start making noice in the carridors, the walls are think and you can easily hear what's going on in the next room. air conditioners that make noice - no way you can get the remote controller, so you call reception, if you are lucky and they come - they turn it on, than when you feel enough, you call them, they come and turn it off:)))) keys? i did not get keys for 2 days, they said sometimes system is not working good, so i cound get out of room, but when i need to get in, i go to reception, ask them to come and open the door for me. for 2 days at least paid internet was working ok, you can only have 2 hour cards for approximately 5 USD. there is big flat screen TV, something i did not caer much and not many english channels any way. one more thing - i would say the hotel is "generally not clean" some basic things they could of clean like cups in the rooms or take the dust or wash the towels properly;) i will stop here not to sound too perrimistic. oh, one more thing, forget about hot water and the internet - i bought the card , but it is not always working - it is like hot wahter you may have it todya and not have it tomorrow.

Hotel Parkland classifies itself as a budget hotel but at Rs 6900, that’s hard to swallow. I managed to get a reduced rate of Rs 4000, breakfast included, still high for my budget on this trip, but the room was worth it.
Check-in was smooth and simple compared to other Delhi hotels. I was quickly shown to the room and left to myself. Having just flown in from the US my time schedule was a bit off so the TV got a good workout this night. The room is very nicely finished with wood floors, a seating area with loveseat and table, a built in desk and storage unit and best of all a large comfortable bed with crisp linens. Above the desk you’ll find a large flat screen TV with a full schedule of channels, only a few English.
The bathroom was neat and clean complete with full time running water and complimentary soaps, shampoo and a few other goodies in case you forgot to pack yourself.
The hotel is situated just off one of the main drags but my room was positioned towards the back of the building so I never heard any road noise. There was some shuffling around 2 A.M., most likely from other foreign arrivals which is about the right time of night for them to appear.
Breakfast is served right off the lobby in a breezy sun-filled dining area complete with several large screen TV’s to keep you occupied. There is a buffet set up with cereals, juices, a few South Indian choices but mostly continental. Just ask for curd, eggs to order or paratha. The chai is not so good, skip it here and find on the streets.
Hotel Parkland operates several locations around the city. This property was located in the Defence Colony, a nice neighborhood with safe walking but a distance from the tourist landmarks. Stay here for a comfortable stay away from the crowds or transferring to another city the next day. If you’re looking to walk to sight-seeing, this hotel is not for you.
Hotel Parkland definitely offers a higher level than most “budget” hotels. Try for a discount to make this hotel an even better value.

I recently stayed at Hotel Parkland Defence Colony. The place itself is as advertised and the staff working at the hotel were pleasant enough. I did experience problems however when using some of the hotel services such as; the laundering service which caused damage to my property.
Since staying at the hotel I have tried to initiate correspondence with the hotel and even personally visited the hotel to explain the damages to my property but I have not received even one return form of correspondence. Whilst the staff at the hotel were pleasant during my stay, the powers that be obviously do not care about customer satisfaction or the reputation of the individual hotels.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and to those who do stay, I advise them to not use any of the hotel services.
