I don't want to write this review because I want to keep this gem of a hotel to myself. This was my first stop in India. I pre-paid my tariff on Expedia and wrote in the comments that I needed a complimentary airport pickup. They called me 15 minutes after I clicked submit to get all my airline details. As a solo female traveler in India, I really wanted to make sure I had transport pre arranged with someone I trusted. My flight actually arrived 6 hours late, at 4:30 am, and I was sure that the driver had gone home to sleep. Instead he was waiting patiently for me and even played tour guide on the way back to the hotel.
The hotel was spotless, modern, and well thought out. Boys were constantly cleaning every inch of the place. The hotel is rated 3 stars, but I believe it's only because they don't have amenities like a pool and spa. The rooms may as well be 4 stars. My window faced an alley but the insulation is good enough to block out the street noise. Sometimes I heard hotel noise on the stairs during the day. Wifi works great in the rooms. I was able to video Skype with my family with no interruption. The bed was queen sized, brand new, comfy. Soft sheets.
All the staff were unbelievably helpful and pleasant. If I wanted anything I picked up the phone. Breakfast is included and I just ordered it to my room every morning because I like watching Al Jazeera while eating my morning parantha. Seriously, my room was the cleanest place in Delhi.
I came down with the flu on day 2 so I ended up staying 2 extra nights. It was no problem, I didn't have to change rooms. The handsome Sikh man at reception told me "Madam, it is our pleasure that you stay with us as long as you like." So cute.
Paharganj can be a rough part of town and D.B. Gupta road is not the nicest street in Delhi. But Hotel City Star is like an oasis. I will never stay anywhere else when I visit Delhi!
