I still have good memories of two young men whose names are Prem Singh and Shrikant Singh who helped me a lot with their informations and tips about the city. They both speak fluent english and were always smiley and very very helpful....

We traveled in India for 2 weeks and stayed in 10 hotels across the northern part of India. First impression of the hotel is great, however the front desk staff has terrible attitudes. Extremely unhelpful. Staff in the dining room was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

After a horrendous experience my parents had at a "popular guest house" near the ghats, I had them shifted to Rivatas by Ideal for a night. Their experience was pleasant. They enjoyed the room, food, service, amenities and the comfort. This hotel has a rejuvenating effect on them before they returned to Delhi. I would recommend this place to families...

Firstly, the good thing about this hotel is that the rooms are spacious and are maintained and kept clean. The housekeeping staff is very humble and their work is fast too. On the other hand breakfast is not that wide ranged and dull. Food here is quite over priced. Wifi is chargeable which is surprising. Over all onetime stay is...
