“No complaints, actually...”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

I had the cheap room above the reception area but I did not have any problem. It could be a bit noisy because it was facing the street, but I didn't mind. I could sleep when I wanted to sleep. It's not a luxury hotel but everything you may need are just nearby. It's in the middle of the main bazaar street so restaurants and souvenir shops abound. Internet shop and barber shop were also next door. A short walk from the rail and metro stations which made it easier for me to navigate Delhi.

This hotel would normally deserve an 'average' rating if you consider cleanliness or condition of the rooms. However, for someone who simply wants a place to stay for a very good price, Hotel Namaskar really does the job. Staff is helpful and there is always someone around. Despite the hotel being in the middle of Pahar Ganj, which certainly isn't an area you want to spend a long time in, we felt save. They also provide filtered water from a fountain which was pretty handy. To conclude, I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a hotel close to ND Railway Station, the Metro to the airport and in proximity to Connaught Place. Staff is a bonus too. So think about your expectations and decide based on what your priorities are.

Room Tip: Probably preferable to stay on one of the upper floors. We had a non-AC room with a fan which did th...

While this hotel is not glamorous it is cheap, clean[not spotless] and safe and well managed. It is up a small lane in main bazaar area so not noisy at night but for those who like to sleep late in the morning a room at the back would be better.
I stayed here 6 nights and loved being part of the bazaar, Management is helpful and polite and know the area well. They do not allow non guests upstairs and this avoids hassles re people trying to book tours etc. They have a generator for when power breaks down.
Bed was comfy and large, staff was not intrusive [ a big bonus!!]

It's very well located, in the Main Bazar area in Delhi. Close to the airport train, metro and connoaught place.
It isn't fancy, but it's clean enough and there isn't hassle. You pay the room's price, which is fixed and you may ask for information if you want. They will fix you with some taxi to go to the airport (that will cost the same price as the metro) what may be more comfortable.
In the region you will have lot's of options of places to eat and to have some cheap shopping.

We stayed here in November 2012. We were on a "as low as you can" budget, came here first because it was recommended on the guide. Left because they would not bring the price of their room down. We went to almost every other budget place in the area (Paharganj), and we found slightly cheaper, but infinitely dirties and dodgier. For the sake of 50 or 100 rupees we decided to go back to Namaskar. Good choice! as we both got the runs and had to end up staying here for over a week.

Fortunately the place was nice enough, definitely nicer looking than in most of the pictures here, they must have renovated it. Cleanish room and toilet, quite clean bed clothes, did not encounter any cockroaches (we were in the third floor, no windows), toilet was a sit down (luckily, as I said above...). It is a family run hotel, they are all very nice and friendly. They do not work with hawkers on the street and they will not hassle you to stay with them They certainly don´t need to because it is the nicest cheapest place in the area and they are always busy.

If you are arriving to India for the first time, I would not recommend staying in Paharganj straight away. Go to another area and stay somewhere for 1,000 - 3,000 rupees for a couple of days. Then come here and gradually adjust.

The area is the typical backpacker nightmarish fare. Lots of "hippy" souvenir stores, lots of western food available etc etc. It is very well communicated though, so you can get out and about to the more "normal" parts of town, such as Connaught place or Nehru place. Delhi is very very modern, and Paharganj does not represent it at all. So do get on the metro, you will enjoy it, it is so new!

On a side note, nearby this place (on the right hand, as you look out the door), there is a very very good cyber café. The owner is very knowledgeable, it has fast connection (one of the best we found in the whole country), and he won´t try to screw you. Also he can help you with any technological questions if you want to go shopping while in Delhi.

Room Tip: There is a few rooms in the ground floor. Try NOT to get those. Rooms with balcony are nicer but mor...

We stayed 2 times in this hotel: it was the first hotel when we arrived in India and also the last, when we got back home. The rooms are very simple, not very clean, just imagine a room with a bed... The first time we slept in a room on the first floor. This room had a window, no A/C but a fan, and a bathroom which was very small, a little bit dirty but okay... The managers are very nice and willing to help you.
The second time we slept in an A/C room on the groundfloor (room 6). This room is spacy but quite depressing as there is no window. The bathroom was far more better than the first time (with a sink, bigger, better shower).

The second time however we had some troubles with the nightkeeper of the hotel. We arrived at 7 o' clock in the morning and got a room. We only stayed 1 night because we had our flight home the next day. The nightkeeper was quite annoyed that we arrived early because he didn't sleep a lot I think... after a day delhi-visiting, we arrived back at the hotel that evening and again, it was that nightkeeper who was sitting there. He was still very annoyed with us and said we had to check out before 8 in the morning! (normally it is 12, everywhere in the hotel hangs a paper with 'check out time 12 noon') We were suprised and asked why, and he said because we arrived at 7 in the morning. We had to check out before 8, or we should pay him 300 rupies more (he said).... we were quite angry and absolutely not amused, but also, we didn't believe this sudden rule of him. So we said we wanted to hear this from his boss, and he became even more angry. We went to our bed and checked out at noon, when the bosses were sitting there. They didn't say anything about this sudden rule, we didn't have to pay more and they were very friendly..

So it is a pity that this nightkeeper tried to make us pay more for his own wallet... don't listen too much to that boy, just talk with the real managers!!

Room Tip: ask to see some rooms before deciding... some have windows, some haven't... the bathroom can be...
