First of all, don't expect clean rooms in India. 95% hotels have dirty sheets. So rooms weren't clean and poor in general. However location is perfect. Right in the heart of noisy Paharganj main bazaar. Hot shower, tv, wifi (again typical in India) that doesn't work. Staff is helpful and gives great tips. For the price it's pretty good, but don't expect anything special.

Room Tip: Don't book online. Go, see, negotiate price down if not available get another of 100's of co...

Arriving at the airport I was immediately greeted by a man holding a sign with my name on it thanks to a pre-arranged pick up, recommended for first timers. The driver told me about a few various sights on the trip to the hotel and was happy to answer my questions through some very broken English.
Once arriving at 7am to Hotel Payal, my room was still being used (midday checkout) so they put me into a spare room in which I had a sleep and was put into my room at 12.
As far as the insides and rooms are, not the cleanest, but nothing outrageously bad. The two boys that worked there were helpful and gave good advice although tried to plan my whole time in India for me, charging a vast amount of rupees.
The hotel is on the main bazar in Paharganj which is quite a busy road, lots of shops/stalls, tuk-tuks and rickshaws. Constantly a noisy area, but it's far from unbearable and definitely to be expected. Wifi worked well!

On the main bazaar in Paharganj, quite noisy at night due to the location. Good hot shower, OK room, but we had very loud guests shouting in the hotel all night so checked out and moved to a nicer hotel for the same price – Ajay Guest House. All in all, OK for arrival to settle but you can get better for your money. Close to train station and some good restaurants.

Room Tip: This is on the main bazaar road so maybe ask for a room at the back

This hotel was a great location, on the main bazaar.
Rooms were basic and clean.
Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Staff advised not to stay out too late in that area, and gave us a laptop to watch the soccer game so we weren't out late at night.

If your plan is to stay out during the day and come back only to sleep, this would be the place for you. It has hot water, comfortable enough beds, the staff is very nice and hepful. The location us very close to a metro station, a lot of restaurants and shops.

I stayed in Hotel Payal in November and I was really happy with how it went. It was my first time in India and the boys there were extremely helpful and full of advice. I had dinner with a couple who ended up changing to Payal because they weren't getting the same treatment at their place. India can be daunting so its nice to have that to start off with.

The rooms were clean and had hot water. The vibe of the main bazaar is awesome. Chill out on the roof top with a cup of chai. I'd definitely stay again. =)
