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. .
