“Great respite in a difficult but wonderful city”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

This place is excellent and clean and in a great area of Paharganj - that is around the corner from the super-touristy area. In fact

The service is excellent and the wifi actually works (unlike so many hotels in India).

TO EAT:
If you're looking for something cheap and excellent - there's a great little hidden restaurant just up the road and across the high street called "Darwar" (ask for "Duh-rih-wah" and people will point you to it) - great veg thalis and it's a local favourite. Don't fall for any of the tourist traps selling all rich meat dishes to foreigners.

Delhi is a difficult city, so - even if you're backpacking - it's worth it to invest in a really clean, comfortable place like this to come home to.

The service is excellent. I had lost an expensive pen the morning before - and instead of dismissing me, they mobilized three people to look for it. The pen didn't turn up but I really appreciated that they took the time - and I probably lost the pen somewhere else in the city.

AIRPORT:
Skip the cabs! Take the airport metro directly to New Delhi station which is just around the corner! It's super cheap and clean and 15 minutes and you don't have deal with Delhi traffic which is brutal at best. Take a rickshaw or a cab from the metro for 40 rupees or just walk if you don't have much luggage.

We Stayed here 3 nights on arrival in India.
Airport pick up all good.
The room was comfortable, modern , clean and spacious and the staff werereally helpful.
We were on level two which was a bit dark and seemed unfinished but this didn't effect our stay.
The only downside was location.
I liked it actually, but everyone we met ept trying to direct us to connaught place hahahaha, and telling us it was a bad area.

OK, so I always like to ease myself into crazy cities, like Delhi, so I go for places which are clean, well organised, helpful staff and speak my language!
Hotel Le Roi is all of that, recently refurbished, newish bed linen, clean bathroom, and no bugs!
I was on the fourth floor and could hear quite a bit of street noise after 10pm; dogs, horns, and loading/unloading trucks at 4am once! Get used to it and use earplugs :-)

Food in restaurant is good quality, did not get upset tum. Pretty quiet but I just went to eat. Plenty of other places nearby for atmosphere.
Laundry service was good.
Easy to get a tuk-tuk outside.

The location is a little more scruffier than many Delhi streets but you'll get used to that in India :-)

Namaste

Room Tip: Go high and at the back

While this hotel is certainly a step above the typical Pahad Ganj trash, it still has a ways to go to meet international standards.

Le Roi has an impressive lobby and friendly check-in staff. When we were shown our room we inspected it, and found dirt and someone's hair hidden between two bed pillows. Also, the bed was aligned sideways with the headboard, meaning it was very wide and way too short. It was clearly less than 6 feet long. This room had a large bathroom and bathtub but we asked to be moved as the bed size was unacceptable.

We took the next room we were shown, which had a much smaller bathroom and no tub, only a shower space with curtain. However, the bed was normal length (about 6 feet), and there was a nice wooden desk with a new comfy desk chair. The hotel provides extra amenities like bathroom toiletries, including a shaving kit, two toothbrush/toothpaste kits, talc, shampoo, etc. Also included were two sets of slippers to wear in the room. All rooms have a fridge stocked with some juices/sodas which you have to pay double the MRP for.

Since this is a newly built hotel, all the furnishings are new. The room doors are very secure (up to modern standards) with a handle lock, bolt, chain and "magic eye" eyehole to see who's standing outside. The rooms have a central air-conditioning system, no wall or window A/Cs. I liked the drapes which were very nicely done- both sheer and heavy curtains. The blanket was actually a nice white comforter which we liked.

The window in our room was locked when we arrived so there was no way to open it to get fresh air. We had to call for someone to bring a key to open it and it took awhile for them to find the right key. The air-con system is clearly not serviced/cleaned regularly which leads to a large amount of dust circulating the room and settling in everything- the curtains, upholstery, razaai, etc. For those with dust/mold allergies this means you will have problems as the allergens freely flow through the room even when the A/C is off. This is a problem in most budget-range hotels throughout India. There were also no hooks anywhere in the room or bathroom to hang clothes.

The most disappointing thing was my experience with the shower. When I went to shower in the evening there was no hot water in the bathroom. After calling the front desk the water finally came about 20 minutes later. While showering the entire shower area filled up due to a clogged drain, and immediately overflowed into the adjoining toilet/washbasin area. Even the drain under the sink was clogged so the entire bathroom floor was flooded with soapy water, and the "bath mat" was sopping wet. They need to install bathtubs in ALL the rooms otherwise construct at least a decent shower stall, and service the drains!

A free buffet breakfast is included with your room, which operates from 7-10 AM.

You may or may not be satisfied with this hotel depending on what your expectations are- It's definitely better than its neighbours but not totally modern or well-maintained either.

Mid-range hotels in Delhi are generally expensive, most of them have holes-in-wall for rooms and the staff is generally rude. Le Roi is an exception to all these...the hotel is located in a bustling Paharganj locality, very close to both New Delhi Railway station and RK Ashram Marg Metro station. The rooms that me and my family stayed in were the premium rooms and were quite spacious for the money we paid. The room rate included breakfast which was quite modest but tasty. The high point of the overall stay was the warmth with which the staff treated us!
