Booked through booking.com after an exhaustive search on Tripadvisor. Stayed for 6 days/nights. We arrived very late in the evening and our room had been held for us. (We had contacted the hotel ahead).
Location: good, but difficult to find, even by local taxi drivers. On a side street of one of Delhi's busiest shopping areas – Karol Bagh. Near a Metro station (only a few minutes’ walk). A quiet, secure and safe area. Some veg and non-ved restaurants and take away places nearby.
Room: spacious, clean, comfortable, cozy lighted. Comfy beds. Flat TV set. No kettle or boiler. Frigobar (minifridge).
Bathroom: new. Not well cleaned though. An important note on hot water: at the hotel you can have hot water from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.(that is, only available during set times). However, if you want hot water at any other time you have to ask for it, wait for 5 minutes and you get hot water. This is the way it works (and in many places in India indeed). So, it is unfair to say that the hotel has no hot water.
Breakfast: good. Plenty of choice, both Indian and continental. Including many Indian dishes (delicious curries), eggs (cooked in different ways), some fruit, juice, and yogurt.
Staff: good. Courteous, helpful and friendly. Professional and service-oriented. People at the Reception well trained.
Free Wi-Fi connection. Good signal. A PC in the lobby for guests’ use.
Possibility of Currency exchange at the hotel. Good rate. They arranged transfer to the airport.
No frills hotel. The feel in the hotel is quite western indeed.
Cons: Tiny cockroaches in the room, in the bathroom, in the breakfast room. No maps provided. The photos on the hotel website aren`t that true to life!
Keep in mind that when travelling through India finding a clean budget hotel can be quite a challenge. Rockwell Plaza doesn’t disappoint!
Will stay there again when I return to Delhi!. Recommended.
