“Clean affordable hotel in Delhi”
Reviewed 20 May 2010

I stayed at the Wood Castle last week. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Decent breakfast. The hotel provides a pick service for Rs. 800 about $20 - take it. It will save you a lot of trouble trying to find the place. Quiet neighborhood which is rare in a city like Delhi.

Highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean comfortable place.

This hotel gives you everything that a spoiled European needs while being in India (for the first time) - calm, cleanness, hot water and a hospitable treatment. I did not really spent much time in the hotel apart from the actual sleeping so that I can't comment on the food and hanging out in the reception.

What more can I say and add to what is already mentioned below in all these other reviews. These reviews are less than a true reflection to what this newly and happily established hotel offers. Travelling to Delhi was the first time for me and my nephew, we did not know what to expect. After trawling for several weeks for a good hotel, which when travelling we stay at 4/5 star hotels, we kept coming across Woodcastle and am sure like you, we all were shocked to see that one hotel in Delhi with 100% positive reviews, we took a chance and booked there. My sister contacted the hotel prior to us arriving to ensure we had a taxi ready to collect us, which there was. Check in was easy, nice and warm welcoming. We met with Javed at the hotel who helped us sort out a taxi driver for a daily charge for sightseeing around Delhi and our trip to Agra. It was not until the evening that we met the hotel owners Rajesh and his business acquaintances that our holiday in Delhi truly began. Rajesh is truly the live and soul of the hotel and his personality reflects this. Rajesh was what made this holiday for us, he ensured that we had everything we needed and if we wanted anything more he ensured that we had this. Whilst this trip was a short stopover, I wished I could have stayed longer only because the hotel became my home. Every evening Rajesh would like everyone to enjoy a drink with him and have some snacks. It was my nephew’s birthday on the 12th and they kindly decorated his door with balloons and in the evening we enjoyed the best meal at Pirates of the Grill, highly recommended. Rajesh made the evening with his jovial mood and enlightening personality. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and like to keep in weekly contact with them via facebook and occasional phone calls. Also by emergency my family had a 1 night stopover in Delhi due to airport problems and after one phone call to Woodcastle they ensured that my family were looked after. For this I cannot thank them enough and for all their support with the flight difficulties my family were experiencing. I look very forward to the new Woodcastle West hotel opening in 2011. I have definitely decided to return to my second home in Delhi in October for a longer stay. I really miss my Woodcastle Family and cannot thank them enough for the fabulous and excellent stay I experienced. This truly is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in throughout my yearly travels and to me without a doubt this should be a 5 star hotel in Delhi only you will know after you book and experience this hotel for yourself.

From the minute we walked down the stairs into the reception we were greeted by Rajesh with the biggest smile. We were checked in with no fuss and then shown to our room.

The room was perfect, the bathroom was spotless, with a shower with great flowing hot and cold water. It really was ideal - and the price was spot on.

Everyone who works there became friends within the first day, and were so respectful and helpful we were really impressed.

There was nothing that was too much effort for anyone. They could arrange drivers at the drop of a hat, for a fair price. Food was available whenever we needed it - and was delicious. It is served in the common living area downstairs, and so you get to eat it in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, where you can share your experiences with others, and get tips for the next day. We stayed up late every night talking with the staff (our new friends) and it was a real honour to spend such quality time with "real" Indian people as opposed to tourists or Indians who live abroad.

We travel a lot, and this is definitely our favourite place. We WILL be going back to Delhi - not just to visit the city, but to see Rajesh and co too.

OH! One more thing - they respect your privacy so much that nobody enters your room - not even to clean it - unless you ask them specifically. So when YOU are ready for your room to be reset, a quick word with any of the staff and it will be done with no fuss whatsoever.

The ONLY bad thing about this place is there is NOTHING wrong with it - Rajesh KEPT asking me to think of something so he could improve it - but honestly, they have a winning formula. So if you're unsure where to stay - Wood Castle, EVERY DAY! (That sounds dead cheesy, but it is TRUE!).

The Wood Castle offers tremendous value for a hotel in Delhi. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are a bit small, but comfortable. Two metro stops are close, making it convenient and easy to get to central New Delhi or Old Delhi. This hotel is new and I'm sure that it will be very successful as word gets out about this great choice. I hope that the authors of guidebooks are able to review the Wood Castle - they are sure to recommend it to their readers!

Very good 2.5 star hotel. Very nice and accommodating staff, somewhat limited breakfast. If fresh fruit would be provided for the breakfast, I would give full 3 star rating.
The hotel is on small side street, so you better write down their phone number before arrival, so the taxi driver could call them and try to find the right location. Also, small note in hindu for tuktuk driver is of huge help.
Free internet in the lobby is big plus. The hotel does not have restaurant, but delivers the food to your room. Food is excellent quality and very reasonably priced, so my best suggestions.
There is no swimming pool and the AC can be quite noisy. Rooms could be kept more clean though.

Wood Castle, New Delhi has excellent interiors, new fittings and furnishings, most convenient location and a warm welcoming staff. I was truly amassed by their hospitality at the price of a budget hotel. I recommend everyone to please visit this hotel at least once and not to get fooled with what people say.

We stayed in Wood castle, New Delhi on our way to Mata Vaishno Devi Darshan. We had booked one double room for 13th April 2010 (12 noon Checkout on 14th April 2010. We left for Delhi sightseeing on 14th April 2010 and reached very late at woodcastle. Surprisingly when we requested for the use of a room for few hours Woodcastle welcomed us for no extra charges. We had to catch our train at 11:30 pm to Jammu on that day.

We returned on 19th April 2010 and requested for the use of a room for few hours and again Wood Castle welcomed us for no extra charges. I have stayed in so many budget, 1 star, 2 star even 5 star hotels but has never ever see a hospitality like this in a very busy and costly city like New Delhi that’s why I say “The True Hospitality means WoodCastle - New Delhi”
