At the start of our Golden Triangle trip we stayed at bloomrooms @ linkrd which we really enjoyed. Nice design, good quality furniture, clean and excellent service.
We booked the Bloomrooms @ New Delhi Railway station at the end of our trip on purpose. The location gives a real feel of old Delhi (including the dirt and noise) and is supposed to be close to the Airport metro because we felt that this was the most predictable option of getting to the airport.
About the location: it is in a hectic part of old Delhi and it is really an incredible experience. We suggest to do this only if you have acclimatized to India a bit otherwise it might be too much, And we stayed in a room not facing the street which we think is smart if you are a light sleeper.
The airport metro station is a little bit further than we expected. It is a ten minute walk in a very busy area with possibly a lot of pickpockets (we suspect two attempts were made on our walking trip from/to the hotel to steal my wallet). Because walking to the metro station with all our luggage through this busy area was not very attractive, the fact that taking a taxi to the station and buying three metro tickets is almost as expensive as taking a cab to the airport and taking into account that on sunday mornings the traffic is ok in Delhi, we decided to go to the airport by cab. The hotel organized this for us for RS 950.
Bloomrooms advertises with their reliability and service. At check-in we found that this Bloomrooms hotel is really not holding up to this promise. We arrived at 3pm and were told that the room was not ready for some unspecified time. There were also other guests having problems with checking in. After mentioning the money back guarantuee if service was not provided and a phone call to the manager, the problem was resolved and we could enter our room immediately. I would be very worried as management of this location because this way it is loosing its unique proposition of good service and high quality for a reasonable price.
The hotel itself was also less sophisticated as the Linkroad property. The room was ok, no windows (but because of the outside noise we thought this was a blessing in disguise) and the bed linen was not as clean as was the bed linen @linkroad.
The Amici restaurant was nice and served fresh hot pizza's. If we looked around it was a little oasis for a lot of fellow travellers that were exhausted by the Delhi experience.
We like the Bloomroom concept and we hope the management can get this location back on track which will make it a nice oasis in hectic Old Delhi.
