First of all the staff. For the most part they were very friendly except for a bad experience with Mr. Kausmal who proceeded to yell at me and my guest and was generally very rude and grumpy. I complained to the manager Mr. Reymond the next day and he kindly took care of the problem and from that point on I did not have problems with Mr. Kausmal. But it should not have come to that. Apart from him the staff was quite good, especially the cleaning staff who were efficient, kind and smiling. Location: Pahargunj should actually be called Pahar Grunge. Delhi is such a wonderful city but this neighborhood is plain tacky with cheap hotels, touts, and neon. It is a bit of a hike to Connaught Place, at least a 15 minute brisk walk and not a very pleasant one at that. I am a guy, but wondered if it would be a good walk for a single woman. I would venture to say no, especially in the evening. So if you are doing budget you may want to consider a hotel in Karol Bagh - the neighborhood is much more pleasant and there is a metro stop right there. Btw the metro in Delhi is fantastic, goes all over the city, is clean, safe and cheap. Love it. The room was clean, large enough, the lobby nice, so I would say if you don't mind the location and can put up with the grumpiness of some of the staff, it may be worth a go for a few nights. I will probably not return as I have found better options closer to the metro and in a much better neighborhood. And in general if this is your first time in Delhi, better not to stay in this neighborhood as it will affect your overall view of the city. I met people who hated Delhi for this reason as they stayed in this area. South Delhi and Karol Bagh are your best options. Especially South Delhi near a metro stop.
