This place is fine, I would consider staying again...but not without checking out other hotel options. If this is 4-star quality (per their website), and if 5-star is Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton, then there is a HUGE GAP between 4 and 5 stars in India...or is there 6 STAR hotels in India?
I stayed in 6 hotels on my recent journey to India, and this one was marginally on the higher end of my modest trip. Keep in mind that the best hotel of my trip was the overnight stay before my flight from the U.S. at a recently refurbished La Quinta Inn (hardly a 5-star place).
The location seemed convenient enough for sight-seeing, but there didn't appear to be anything of interest (convenience store, restaurant, grocery, pharmacy) within nearby, walking distance. In an urban city location, I don't consider a 15 minute walk "nearby", that's 30 minute round-trip walk.
Our arrival at night was greeted by friendly staff, and an odd rickety metal detector at the front door. In the dim light, everything looked nice enough, but the light of day revealed wear and tear of the hotel, including the rooms. It was clean, this is not a trashy hotel, but could use some attention to detail for their website claim as "Jivitesh makes its mark as a 4 star luxury hotel".
Room was a nice size twin for the two of us, quiet, english TV selection was just "okay", washroom and water pressure and hot water adequate. The food was very good and service was very good. (You better like Indian food or cold cereal and toast, though...no eggs and all vegetarian).
This place is fine, I would consider staying again...but not before looking at alternate hotel options.

Room Tip: Our room was on a higher floor in the rear...quiet and good sleep.

I have stayed at the Jivitesh a couple of times now and for several nights. The hotel is fairly modern style with comfortable rooms not big but adequate for a night or two.
They have a comfortable bed, hot shower , in room safe, mini bar,tea and coffee and sky TV with a good selection of English speaking channels.
The Hotel laundry is good and if you call reception by around 10:00am it will be returned by around 18:00/19:00 hrs same day.
The staff are very helpful particularly the Porter who will always help with bags and any other small problems such as getting the correct Sky channels.
You can log in and print your boarding cards with the help of reception also.
The hotel restaurant is Vegeterian but for breakfast there are cereals, fruit juice , fresh fruit, toast and muffins along with the Vegeterian hot buffet.
In the evening there is sometimes a hot buffet or you can choose ALa Carte, I can recommend the vegetable jalfrezi and garlic naan bread as well as the honey and banana pancakes!
The hotel does have a tour desk or outside there are plenty of Tuk Tuk's and taxis that will take you anywhere but be sure to ask the price first as an example I had a tuk tuk for two hours to visit a few shops and markets for 100 rupees.
The hotel says it is around 20 minutes from /to the Airport, this may be possible in the early hours of the morning but I would recommend allowing 45mins to 1 hour particularly if you are travelling around 9 or10 am or 7 to 9pm as the traffic is very busy.

The Jivitesh rooms were lovely and the staff very friendly. We enjoyed the food and overall we had a good stay. My main complaint was with one of the rooms we had continual problems with the shower. On the first night there was no hot water and then the tap couldn't be turned off. The next night we managed to get out a trickle of water. One of my friends accidentally broke a small vase in the foyer and the staff came over immediately and said she would have to pay for it. I thought it was a bit rude considering the lack of hot water. This aside our stay was pleasant.

We choose the Jivitesh hotel based on reviews from TA. Staff very friendly but rooms and hotel are tired and need an upgrade. The reception with the dirty glass behind is not a good start when you arrive tired from a flight.
Outside the hotel is not pleasant, you are pestered by tuk tuk drivers when you just want to walk but this is par for the course here. Also walking anywhere is very difficult as the paths are in such bad condition and any wall or corner is used as a lavatory by the locals. The metro is a few minutes walk and you can get to Connaught Square in the centre of New Delhi very quickly. Negotiating the ticket machines is tricky but at only 20p each way worth the experience. If you walk towards the centre of Delhi following the metro line by the second metro station (About 15 mins walk) is a government run wine and beer shop. It's an experience as the queue is always long, Kingfisher beer 140 rupee's, Blue Riband gin 440 rupees and Sula wines 650 rupees.
We found the hotel expensive but this is what you pay in Delhi if you want a reasonable location.

Started our tour of Northern India here and really enjoyed our stay. Room was good, clean, comfy bed and good hot shower. Food, dinner and breakfast, both excellent - best okra!

I can't comment on value as part of an organised tour.
