At around £18 a night this hotel was good value for money. I would say it is a higher standard than most Indian hotels in this price range. The room was nice with comfortable bed, armchairs, ceiling fan, fridge/minibar, TV, toiletries, and in good decorative order, including the bathroom, and kept clean.
Service was very good with helpful porters, desk managers etc. The hotel security man even went with me when I couldn't find the local ATM late at night. Of course staff expect a little 'baksheesh' for this but I don't mind giving a few rupees if the service is good.
The food was also quite good value for money. There is a nice roof terrace where you can eat out although breakfast was served in a rather poky basement room. Karol Bagh is a slightly shabby but reasonably safe and quiet area, not like the ghastly backpacker ghetto of Paharganj. The metro is only about five minutes walk from the hotel which is another big bonus. Don't miss the textile market in the area either.
The only downside of the hotel was that the marbled stairwell acts as an echo chamber and it can be a little noisey if people are arriving late at night, although I only noticed this on my first night. The shower pressure was very weak so I had to wash Indian style with the bucket but that wasn't really a problem.More
