This is a very nice boutique hotel, comfortable and cozy. It located in safety area and nearby Defence Colony Market. It takes only 5 mins by walk. The staff were friendly, welcoming and very good service.
I had booked overnight stay at Evergreen Suites A-153 Defence colony New Delhi.
I checked in yesterday.
Plus points:The room is comfortable
The security staff were friendly and helpful, directing me to the nearest market - five minutes walk. (Had momos and juice for dinner, 90 bucks total)
1. I am new to Delhi and my cab driver did not know this small B&B. On calling from South extension we found the phone constantly engaged, both numbers. After ten tries we got someone who also didn't know the way from that point. Finally we got someone to direct us to their given landmark - JCO club. But navigation to the exact road took ten minutes of backing, asking, retracing steps. It doesn't show up on Google either! A map would be helpful!
2. I was the only one at reception, yet it took me 30 minutes to get a bellboy to take me to my room. Check in is 1100 and I reached at 1515 or so!
3. The water for my bath was less than even lukewarm at full turn to hot even after 5 minutes of flow. I shivered at 0730! If there's a timing for hot water, say so, I'd have used the kettle and had a bucket bath!
4.The last is the worst! I inquired about their breakfast timings - 8-10 am was the answer.
I took my diabetic medication at 0730 and was down by 0755. I paid my bill and waited. And waited and waited and waited! Finally feeling a low sugar coming on, I asked to be served. The answer (from service person Sunil Paswan) was that the breakfast was decided to be served at 0900 that day! After a lot of complaining I was grudgingly given parathas at 0845! I tried to have the banana on the table to ward off the low but the two I peeled (or tried) were raw! I had to ask for coffee with lots of sugar to prevent problems! No one offered it out of concern.
Incidentally their certificate is for 6 rooms on ground and first floor. I was put up on the second floor - room 34!
The receptionist, Simranpal Singh, only wanted to make excuses of how they, in past, made sandwiches ... make jalebi or curds rice - the point is, have it on the table when you say you will! I even called the manager to complain, one Aashish, but got no apology or explanation from him either! Avoid this place unless you are desperate!
This is more like a mansion, converted into guest house. It is cozy, and peaceful. Though it surely needs a uplift, and makeover, as with better hygiene and better atmostphere in the rooms. And taking care of certain wear and tear, could make this a very favorable place to stay.
Nice and friendly staff, breakfast layout was impressive. It felt homely.
It is near by to some prominent spots of south Delhi.
Wifi could be improved, rooms are spacious, some with private balcony.
A small boutique guest house, not too old, well made, warm hospitality, efficient staff, neat & clean environment, great breakfast. All in all good for a short stay. Request to management: don't shoot the prices like others.
Clean and comfortable. Although twin accommodation had been requested we were told that all rooms have a single king bed. On a short street where half the buildings are currently undergoing renovation so a fair bit of construction noise. Defence Colony Main Market a short distance away for good restaurants and essentials shopping. Difficult to find.
