This is a though one. As a business traveler I do not have a lot of experience with budget backpacker style hotels, so it took me some time to rate this hotel in a fair way. There are definitely good things to say about this hotel. It is very close to the central railway station. The hotel’s airport pickup was waiting for me and the driver took me straight into the hotel, which is possibly difficult to find in the dark. There is AC (haven’t tested it) and there is a nice flatscreen television in the room. Those are the good things.
At first, the room looked reasonably clean, but my white slippers looked filthy after 2 nights of wandering from the bathroom to the bed. The price for the airport pickup was 100 roupies more than what was told me on the phone (airport parking fee, sir!).
The room had a window that could not be closed completely. The fighting street dogs kept me awake all night. Take your earplugs when you go there!
There was no hot water in the shower.
The 2 nights were booked and prepaid through an internet website. When I checked out, it took some time and email proof to convince the receptionist that the room was already paid for.
The price paid was more or less OK, but there certainly are places with better quality places for less money. I think my next stay in Delhi will be in a different hotel.
