“YMCA Delhi”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

I booked a room here by internet. The price had escalated when the booking was confirmed, and it had escalated further when I arrived. However, the plane was delayed for various reasons, and so arriving at 6 in the morning I was relieved to find that I still had somewhere to stay, and moreover for that day I paid only half-price. The YMCA is very conveniently located in a quiet tree-lined street right off Connaught Place. It has something of the pleasantly old-fashioned air of the British Raj, and the dining room - which provides a very substantial breakfast and dinner - could almost be the junior officers' mess. I rather liked that, though perhaps not everyone would. It tends to be patronized by somewhat earnest types and groups of uniformed Indian children, but that could be worse. I think it's a little expensive for what it is, but taking into account the position, the facilities, the quietness and the usual obliging staff, not at all a bad deal. .

Price is good for the central location and sincere service but the facilities need to be upgraded. The Business center is quite run down and the fixtures in the room are quite rickety. The mattress needs to be aired or better yet replaced as they are musty. The blankets and bedsheets need to be replaced with newer ones.

All that said it is a good place to stay a night and experience the majestic parts of Delhi by walking (about 3 km) or take a short Auto ride to Janpath/India Gate. Jantar mantar is right behind YMCA so you will cross it many times. The Bangla Sahib Gurudwara has some good *meals* (especially halwa) or if you are interested in the traditional south indian cuisine there is the 'Saravana Bhavan' (short walk from the Y at CP).

The A/c accomodation was good as it was very hot in Delhi. Very cheap for a centrally located place. Safe too.Not for people looking at posh places but certainly great for an upper middle class family like ours.

Hi,
I was in YMCA end of January 2012 and I was really happy and excited at the beginning as I saw it is well located in the heart of Cannaught place. but How I wish I had stayed somewhere far...
It was in my first night where all was fine, next day happily started my day when I took the lift from 3d floor, and as soon as the door closed the light went off and got stuck between the 3d and 2nd floor. All I could see is darkness, no where to ask for help. my breath was getting over. I saw myself dead already..starting feeling suffocated...could not shout...had the room keys on my hand that I used to make a sound with inside the lift so that someone can hear and come to help..5 minutes locked inside the dark lift that if I stayed 5 min more I would have died easily! I had to wait till the light came back!! Is that logical??? you get stuck inside the lift and wait till the light come again!! what if it doesn't come? The light came back and when I reached the 1st floor I found that big gang of people waiting for me to come down. no one could go up to see whats going on or at least say some words that can calm me while inside the lift. Once I stepped out the lift I could not stop crying though I am a strong person!

I went to reception with teary eyes and the guys there had no idea what was happening. they were so happy and told me it happen frequently.

Forget about the food which is yes: Not bad and cheap.
Forget about the location which is very good

One better pay more and stay somewhere safe where the stuff value human emotions!!!

Room Tip: Before you choose a room remember that you might be stuck inside the lift getting no help from anyon...

Everyone thinks, it's YMCA but this YMCA in New Delhi, India is like more than a 3 Star Hotel, Porter to take your luggage to your room, Telephone and LCD TV's in rooms, Room Service, Doorman at main Entrance Door. Swimming Pool. Massage Parlour, internet facility room (with extra charge)

Location is just near Jantar Mantar, 500 meters to Cannought Place (City Centre).

Room rate includes Buffet Breakfast and Buffet Dinner,

Room rate is much cheaper than any centrally located Hotel's, I travel a lot in India and have been to Delhi many times and always prefers to stay at YMCA as it's very safe too
