Reviewed 5 March 2014

My experience staying here was really bad! To start with, while we called for booking and reception staff were extremely discourteous and rude. Very intrusive and unhelpful! And to top it all, the room that was occupied by a couple were given to us just after 10 mins of their checkout! The cleaning and housekeeping is poor! the amenities promised for the room of our choice were not provided, unless asked for. Even hot water was not available in the cold evening, despite us asking for it over and over. We were soo disappointed that we had to shift to another hotel within just hours of out checkin. Waste of money. there are other hotels providing better and cleaner services in budget packages!

Although this main bazaar area can be noisy, this hotel is great for price and location. Helpful front desk with travel agents and getting taxis at reasonable prices. I was totally satisfied with my stay here. Clean, cosy and not moldy and smelly like a lot of places close by.

Having travelled the world for years and stayed in many different types of accommodation I can honestly say the Vivek isn't bad at all. Sure the service staff aren't Hilton trained, but the service was efficient, they have a lift, the porter carried my bag up, all good so far.

The room was interior facing with a weird window into the corridor, but on the plus side, the walls were clean (not normally the case in cheap accommodation..

The bed was clean, as was the blanket, and towel, soap provided and although small the room had an ample bathroom (clean, western style) but no hot water... (not a biggy) and there was international tv. Room Wifi was 100rps a day so not expensive..

I didn't eat here as there are lots of good places in the bazaar.

All in all, not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but if you have arrived in Delhi for the first time and are desperate to stay in Paharganj, this is a pretty good choice. they booked my onward travel with no hard sell..

Room Tip: I stayed in 319 (3rd floor) the room with the weird window and no view, so if you want a view, not t...

The hotel is in a great location close to the metro and one stop away from Rajiv Chowk which is the main station for access to the rest of New Delhi. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the restaurant on the roof was great food and the staff are also extremely friendly. Its a great place to stay for short or long term. I feel comfortable and safe in this establishment.

Stayed one night here. Not very clean and not very welcoming or service-minded staff. I stayed here in december and there were no warm blankets. Bedsheets were used before me. Location is OK if you need shelter close to the trainstation. All in all good enough for one night, but not more than that.

We arrived quite late and asked for a room, they said they had rooms for 600 or 800. He said he would give us the 'special price' of 550 for the cheaper room. We went to look at room 211, it was next to the stairs on the 3rd or 4th floor. It was the dirtiest room I had seen in India, after 5 weeks of travelling!
When I looked closer, I found dried rat droppings on the bed and on the floor. The sheets were filthy, thef loor and walls were filthy and the bathroom was gross and full of bugs and ants! We said that if they gave us clean sheets and towels and cleaned the room first we would take it. There were now two guys on then check I desk and the new one wrote out our details and the price of the rooms which was now, magically, only 500 a night! Obviously the price it's meant to be or maybe it was only supposed to be 400?!!!
So we checked in and waited for our clean bedsheets and room to be cleaned - what a joke! It took about 3 hours to get our clean sheets and towels.
The hotel ma have nicer rooms for more money and we were only staying for one night and arrived too late to traipse around looking for an alternative. By my advice would be - stay somewhere else! This was not typical of hotels in India, and a real let-down at the end of our trip.
