“Best hotel of our visit to India”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

From the moment we met the driver at the Airport till we were dropped of at Nizzamuddin train station, our 4 day stay at the Wood Castle was fantastic. The clean rooms, beautiful food, friendly staff and excellent location all added up to a brilliant stay in New Delhi. Khushal (who never seemed to sleep) attended to our every need, with a big smile on his face which made us feel at home. Charming and genuine Javed sorted our trips and transport to the Grand Prix (Nandoo was our driver to Agra, he was funny, friendly and made our long trip pass very pleasantly). Whilst in Delhi we experienced a lot of con-men and tricksters (mostly working for shops on commission). But at the Wood Castle we always felt safe, secure and welcome. A special thank you to the young driver for getting us to the train station on time, despite the crazy Dawali/rush hour traffic, LEGEND :)

I stayed at the Woodcastle in mid October 2013 - it was the first time I'd been to India, and it was the first 4 nights of my month long trip. The rooms were clean and charming, breakfast was awesome. The staff were so helpful organizing drivers at totally randoms times of the night - it was a great start to my vacation, overall. My only suggestion to others staying there is be sure that you keep a business card with you, maybe even ask only of the staff members to write quick directions - it is a bit tucked away (though VERY easy to access the metro and nice and quiet street) but most of our tuk tuk drivers had a hard time finding the hotel.

We read the reviews before booking this Hotel and were a bit skeptical that they could all be so great. But after spending 3 days at this amazing place, we assure you this is a must place to stay in New Delhi.

People treated us like family, and accommodated our every need. The rooms are beautiful and are a welcome retreat to the bustling of the city. The food is amazing, and as wonderful as the conversations with hassan and other people

Everyone who travels wants to come home with memories of their favorite place they visited. Woodcastle is that place. In the 2 times we have been to India, nothing compares. Definitely a great place to begin or end your travels in India or if you are simply passing through for a few days. Forget the New Delhi hotel circuit. Stay here

Nice rooms, warm water shower, soft matras. Also you can have good food over there. And the people are very kindly. They help you to find everything you want. To find a taxi for good prices and to help you finding the best attractions.

I had read wonderful reviews before arriving. And I leave writing another review. Great staff, attentive. They take great pride in treating their guests as members of the family. Mostly Westerners here - but in the heart of New Delhi within walking distance of the Metro, a large market area, etc. I would come back here in a minute. I stayed in another hotel during this trip and they did not compare to Wood Castle. Not even close. I leave here having made new friends with the staff.

My only complaint is that I wish they had wifi available in our rooms. But it is free and available in the lobby.

In addition to the wonderful staff (with Khushal at the front desk), Javed offers excellent, honest, fair-priced travel and tour advise. He can arrange almost anything to meet your travel needs. Very trustworthy.

Great location in the quieter Karol Bagh residential area only 10mins walk from metro and Karol Bagh market. Hassan and staff were most hospitable and informative in helping us plan our car & driver tour of Rajastan. Hassan provided an experienced and English speaking driver (Mr Mohan Singh) who has not only has dodged cows, buffalo, dogs, snakes, rickshaws, trucks, people, etc. but has been extremely knowledgeable & informative about ALL things India! As 'newbies' to India with only 2 weeks free to tour Raj before hitting the beaches of Goa for our final week, WC was an excellent & most perfect place to start and we've had an excellent time! Thanks Hassan and all at WC; you've been brilliant!! Jeannette & Danny, London.

This was the first place my sister and I stayed on our trip to Asia, and it was a welcoming first stop. Wood Castle is very comfortable and affordable with a delicious kitchen. The staff is willing to help with any questions about India or your ongoing travel needs. Ask the WC staff for help and avoid travel agencies.

Quick note about traveling onward from Delhi by train: the foreigners booking office at the train station is NOT closed. Do not believe those who tell you otherwise. There are people at the train station who will try to point you to a travel agency. Ignore them.
