Backstreet hotel that is cheap
by Peter S on
Not much good to say about this hotel. Stayed two nights - the bed was Ok and the fan worked. I would not recommend this as a place to stay in Delhi. It appeared unfinished and was not clean. Our room was on the fourth floor and we carried our own gear up, staff not much help.
Good hotel, but need to upgrade their AC.

The Friendliest and most welcoming staff greet you. The check-in process is fast and easy; the room was spotless, and if I had more time in Delhi, I would have happily spent it there. There are also plenty of food options in the hotel and room service!
Good deal for the price

We originally booked a much more expensive hotel in Delhi, but after traveling for two weeks decided our money is better spent on food, gifts and other stuff. After getting a positive review about this hotel from a traveler we met along the way, we checked online and couldn't find any reviews. However, we saw that the hotel was offering a $27 special via Agoda.
We emailed the hotel directly and they offered to honor that price and include free pickup from the airport (no parking fees - just free). So we decided to take our chances. The pickup from the airport was smooth.
When we arrived at the hotel in Pahar Ganj, the hotel looked new and fine from the outside. We were shown our room, which also looked fine (nothing extraordinary, but fine by mid-range Indian standards considering Delhi is much more expensive than other parts of India).
Generally, our stay was fine, but it's not for anybody who enjoys peace and quiet and Western conveniences. This hotel is still somewhat under construction...it looks like an elevator is coming. All sides also face loud streets where tons of people hang out all day long. There is construction noise, cooking noise and smells, children playing noise, etc pretty much all day long except midnight to 8am. If this bothers you, you may want to stay in a different area, though most of Delhi is pretty busy and loud. We used earplugs and were ok, for the most part. And we were pretty much out all day anyway, exploring the enourmous city of Delhi. For what it's worth, the bigger more expensive rooms with two beds face a somewhat quieter side of the hotel.
The other inconvenience was that the staff had to come up to "turn on" the hot water each time we needed to use it. This wasn't a huge issue for us, but a slight inconvenience. However, once the hot water was on, it was great and the shower pressure was amazing - probably the best showers we've had in India.
The rooms are also clean, but not sparkling clean. You won't want to look under the bed or in corners.
That said, for $27, this is a pretty good deal for Delhi and was a reasonable option for us for 3 nights.
