I have read good reviews before, which is why I booked this one online for 3 nights. My experience was really bad.
The location: watch out for stray dogs and water in front of it. Seems like no one even close to the hotel has heard it's name before. However, the proximity to the railway station could be a plus.
The room: Spacious, but bathroom was not up to the mark, sheets were dirty. The water pressure is large enough and it feels like needles.No temperature control.
The staff: Ready to rip you off at any opportunity. Do not book taxis from the hotel, the rates are arbitrary and unreasonable. The security guy 'offered to help' get an auto by calling his fried and I ended up paying 3 times the fare. I was able to take 'complementary' print outs from the lobby, but the next day, a different manager insisted that I pay Rs. 10/ page as this was 'how they did their business'. Ask for a bill and they will give you something hand written all over, don't expect anything professional, perhaps that's how they do their business. I must say that some of the staff were nice.
Restaurant/ room service: Despite their cheap look, they are expensive. Pay Rs. 70 for a bottle of chilled coca-cola that retails for around Rs. 30ish. The food is bad and comparatively expensive. My wife got 'Delhi-belly' eating their food and it took a while for her to recover. Room service is bad too; you need to make several calls reminding them of your order.
Overall: Really bad. My Delhi experience is limited having stayed only in 3 other hotels earlier, but this one is easily the worst. Surprised by the good reviews.
