This hotel was quite adequate for the price paid for the area that it is in. It is probably a safe bet for a traveller to Delhi, while not anything too amazing either.
The rooms were reasonable and presentable, and of a better than average Indian hotel room cleanliness. There was good airconditioning, ceiling fan, cable TV, and ok bathroom. The bedding was fresh and comfortable. Internet or wi-fi, is only available in the lobby itself.
I found the location to be very easy and convenient. Around the corner on the main road that heads towards the New Dehli station, there is a mini-market style grocery, and some nice cheapish restaurants and the like.
You can pretty easily walk from here to the New Dehli metro, and also to other streets in the Pahar Ganj area, which is one of the more interesting parts to stay in New Dehli.
The staff are adequate and friendly and helpful, though the drivers of the hotel try the usual scams such as trying to get you to pay for 'parking fees' or extra to use the air con etc.... but as long as you are firm you can get out of these petty scams for extra rupees which you will find all over India.
I did like being able to book the complimentary train or airport pick-up online as part of a room package. This worked quite well, but as I mentioned, be ready for the driver to try and get you to pay for extras! Once I complained firmly the driver did back down however.
The included breakfast in the room package was a little bland, and uninspired.
I felt like my belongings were safe here, and over all, I enjoyed my stay at the hotel, and found it to be a pretty good hotel for the price in this area.
Overall, the hotel does try to ensure the guests are happy and enjoying there stay, which isn't always the case in Indian hotels. I would probably think about staying here again if I was passing through Delhi, as I liked the location, and the rooms were of a decent standard for the price being paid.
