My husband and I wanted to find a reasonably cheap hotel in Delhi. We were there 22 years ago and prices has really gone up. We went to Rak International which was listed in our Lonely Planet guide book. They were full, but the hotel next door which was connected- Hotel Gush International had a few rooms available. We asked to see all three rooms and chose the largest and the one with the most windows. The price was 700 rupees a night. The room was clean as were the sheets. The main manager of Rak International was very helpful in answering our many questions. They have a pleasant roof garden cafe. It was interesting to sit up there and watch the locals on their rooftops. The only thing we didn't like was the dogs barking at night! But that would have been anywhere in the Paharganj area.
