You might think it will be nice to settle into a residential neighborhood somewhere far from the noise and chaos of Connaught Place, but you would be wrong. The other guests are mostly visiting Indians and you will be far, far from the sites (perhaps 40 minutes each way by auto-rickshaw and 20-30 by hired car). This just isn't a good hotel for foreign tourists. (Every morning it took me 4 or 5 different drivers to find someone even willing to take me downtown. The hotel won't get you one, but they will hire you a private car for a handsome sum.)
Other things to know: some of the desk staff speak English and some have no idea what you are saying whatsoever so it's always a crap shoot if you'll be able to get help or information but they are all very friendly if sometimes painfully inattentive; the rooms are nice and clean enough although don't expect soft beds or your hot water heater to work quickly or used tea bags or dishes to be removed or replenished and the safes are battery operated and buggy so it has a *budget* feel to it; no driver in the city will have any idea how to find the hotel and any return home will inevitably involve stopping several times for directions; the complimentary breakfast is quite a nice selection of hot foods so that's a plus; and also know that this hotel is on a relatively small but very busy street so you have incredibly loud street noise (as in, Manhattan sounds like a sleepy little farm town due to the Indian insistence that all drivers must lay on their car horns anytime they move) but that is (to be fair) pretty much true of all of Delhi streets and hotels. At Royce, it's mainly a few hours in AM/PM for rush hours so staying in a middle class residential neighborhood doesn't actually get you peace and quiet. Also, the hotel is dry, so don't count on being to come back at the end of a long day and grabbing a beer or relaxing. Unlike tourist hotels and those for wealthy Indians where they are used to the concept of having a bar, drinking (esp in public) is still considered rather a low occupation among many middle-class Indians and so, no booze for you here and no real bars to speak of in the area.
In sum: it's just not worth staying out here when there are comparable or better places downtown that run 10-20 more.
