“Yuck!!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Having booked online before we arrived we were excited to have a free airport pick up which meant being able to avoid the chaos at the airport, however the driver was late and then expected up to pay him. Once we got into the hotel which was up a tiny alley way with two nicely placed urinals next to the entrance the owner was quite rude telling us we looked like crap and needed showers... by the time we got into our room we were already in a mood so the dirty bed and shower caked in rust and lime just added fuel to the fire.
We had booked for two nights and decided to stick with it... however neither of us has showers the entire time we were there.

The manager seemed to have more than one girlfriend staying in the hotel and each time we came downstairs he was with a different western girl. The place was noisy and dirty and the WIFI which was one of our main reasons for booking didn't work. The TV didn't work either.

The one redeeming factor was the great location in the heart of the tourist area.

Don't bother

DO NOT STAY HERE (unless you want to get scammed!)

I pre-booked online which i really regret. The airport pick-up wasn't there for us, even though we had pre-arranged.

On arrival, we were led to another hotel, because they said that 'New King' was getting renovated. They said they had upgraded our room, and we were very lucky as it was worth $25 per night (as if!). Room was basic, not the cleanest but had a fan and tv.

Once we woke up, Lucky the hotel manager invited us for a chai and asked us what we were doing. We had pre-arranged a walking tour, and he basically told us that it was a load of rubbish, and the tour company wasn't using the money properly. When we said we wanted to go the Indian Government Tourism office, he said that his driver would take us free-of-charge, and show us a local place for breakfast on the way. We got totally scammed. There was no Gov. office, they just took us to a travel agency who tried to over-charge us. Basically we wasted half a day and missed our tour because they decieved us and took advantage of the fact that it was our first day in delhi.

THe rest of our stay Lucky was quite rude and at times, aggresive (i'm guessing because we didn't end up using his friend's services, which he would have got money from). He really only wants your money, so just be prepared when you stay here that you will be played and they WILL try to scam you. Avoid this place!!!!

I would never recommend this place unless you were down to your last rupees and simply needed the cheapest possible place for 1 night to crash before leaving India..even then you might be better saving your money and sleeping at the airport. I'm confused as to why it gets such a high rating from some people unless they are rating it based on price alone. The rooms are what you expect for such a low price but its the general vibe from the staff that ruin this place. To begin with though, it has 2 names..its also known as Kuldeep. Did it change because the old name had bad ratings?? Second, the alleyway it's down is bad even for Delhi's standards. The rooms themselves are unclean, tablecloths-used-as-sheets are old and dirty, the bathrooms are dark, damp, dirty, the shower barely works, most dont have western style toilets (but you can ask for one that does) and a lot of rooms don't have windows. The ones with aircon have airconditioners that are so old, noisy and useless it's not even worthwhile asking for one. It's basically the cliched cheap Delhi room you know you're gonna get coz you're only paying a few bucks a night. The staff however, are really what lowers the score. The main guy at reception almost explodes with creepy enthusiasm if you arrive and havent booked further travel plans, forcing his mates travel agency onto you. You could explain it away as just an eager personality until you ask a simple question, disagree with what he is offering or tell him you're going to look around. Then he gets aggressively defensive and seems to try and provoke an argument and will later badmouth you to other guests. This kind of treatment continues everytime you pass him at reception which sucks because thats the only place the wifi reaches. When he sees you trying to use wifi (and potentially book travel plans online) he walks to the computer terminal and switches wifi off - this happened too many times for it to just be a coincidence. Finally, when I checked out, he said he would give me a discount if I promised to write a good review online.

awful place.
manager is so rude and quite aggressive. The porter boy was friendly but spent his day getting screamed at by manager.
bathroom was filthy.
Is it situated next to stinking outdoor public toilet!
and everything is a scam even pick up from airport- use metro is far better and very cheap.

The hotel was clean and nice enough and fairly well placed if you want to stay in touristy delhi. However the try and get you to buy tickets for a tour of your next area from a government office. The office is not a government office and the price is ridiculously high. The Delhi train-station tourist office is open and not burned down and you can book trains 3-7days in advance or less.. The hotels in rajastan are never full so don't believe the lies
