Had a reservation but when we arrived at 5 p.m. were informed they didn't have a room for us. They explained they didn't have a room for us because they had a wedding going on. They then offered us a place to stay at another property down the street that smelled like mothballs (told it was an air freshener), rodents... More

This is a top place to hang out. The hotel facilities were what one would expect for the price but were oozing charm. The rooftop terrace fantastic and very good for relaxing after a hard day touristing!

Have stayed here on a few occasions and are always happy with the rooms, staff, bathrooms and rooftop restaurant. The sheets are crisp, rooms clean, and after a bit of control play, the air conditioners worked well. It is very close to great shopping and other restaurants.

The hotel architecture is worn but very special. The roof terrace is a lovely oasis of calm in this busy part of Delhi. It is really atmospheric, with great food served all day that is reasonably priced. We loved staying here.

Fabulous character building. Easy to find, yet tucked away from the hubbub of Delhi. Very helpful staff, large rooms, spacious lobby, traditional furniture, great rooftop restaurant. Spotlessly clean, and all for 3,300 INR per night. Highly recommended.

In a quieter part of paharganj, nice rooms with pretty Rajasthan furniture, view on inner deep courtyard (keeps street noise at bay but echo from morning staff). Rooftop restaurant, decent rates, non veg and "ice tea". Pretty laid back all-round, would require adequate training of staff and more positive energy from reception up.

Simply appointed rooms, but clean, and the furnishings throughout the whole hotel are lovely - even the door keys are ornate and antique! Location is perfect - tucked around a corner just off the main street in Paharganj, a 10-min walk from the nearest metro station. The rooftop terrace is lovely (and had a bonus friendly cat when we visited!)... More
