It was so lucky for us because after a long trip we had to carried very hard bags, but the hotel was just 300m walk from the main entry of New Delhi Railway Station. Main Bazaar Road was crowded, so we found it quite safe to go on foot and find the hotel by Google Maps and GPS at night. Mr. Harish was very kind to give me his advice about train ticket booking and room reservation. Breakfast was standard and free (with egg, toast, milk, tea, and fruits). The next day we had a late check out because of our mistake, but the staff showed sympathy and did not take the late hours into account.
We took a tuk tuk to Chandni Chowk, but the area was so crowded and scared that we decided to go back Main Bazaar Road immediately. Shopping in Main Bazaar Road brought us the feeling of being at home. There were many foreigners here too. My friend left her bag in a restaurant here and only realized this after 3 hours shopping around! However, the staff kept and gave it back to her.
