Like in so many other reviews I read before booking, "don't be put off by the entrance from the street and the first floor landing". If you are you will miss one of Delhi's gems. Through the door into reception a welcoming cold drink and very helpful staff especially the room boys. Our room was spotlessly clean with modern decoration and furnishings and blissfully cool with whisper quiet air conditioning. The layout of the hotel is a little odd and some rooms don't have windows but from my experience all a window does is let in noise and mosquitoes, we experienced neither during our 8 day stay.
Before arriving we made some travel arrangements through the hotel, airport pick up and drop off and a 2 day overnight trip to Fatepur Sikri and Agra. The drivers we had were punctual and polite and the vehicles clean and comfortable. Our driver, Tony for our Agra trip arranged guides at all 3 sites we wanted to visit, they too were excellent.
We ate in the hotel on some nights and the room service food was fantastic and great value. We found the breakfast disappointing especially as there was no fresh coffee available. There is a Costa Coffee just down the street (left out the hotel and you'll find it on your left) or immediately next to the hotel is a Cafe Coffee Day which serves great coffee and croissants, the staff are friendly too. For eating out try Minar just down the road on the left passed Costa, or Haldirams for snacks and when you yearn for something other than indian food there is a McDonalds on block B middle circle.
The metro is clean, fast and cheap but don't be put off using the tuk tuk's but agree the price first and don't weaken, they are great fun and a great way to see real Delhi.
I would recommend the Hotel Bright to anyone looking for a good hotel in the mid price range and it will be my choice on any return trip I make.
