“OK hotel in awful area”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Tara Hotel is OK, the room is basic but there's wifi (at the small lobby only) with friendly staff and includes breakfast for affordable price. The problem is the area - Yes, it's close to the fort and Jama mosque and Chandi Chowk bazaar itself is definitely worth visiting, but not the best area to stay... It's the most chaotic part of Delhi with so many beggars and traders who will try to grab you every second you walk out of hotel and some men try to touch me as I"m a solo woman. It's my 3rd time in India and I previously lived in Mumbai but I didn't dare to go out at night and checked out in one day. If you have only one day in Delhi, maybe yes for quick tour, but if not, there're so many nicer and safer areas....

The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. The included airport transfer was there waiting which after a very long journey was a relief. The restaurant although basic in design served a very nice meal. The waiter suggested we change our choice as what we had chosen would have been several dishes much the same. It was a very tasty meal. The general area outside is "the true India" If you have not been to India before or stayed in more up market places you may find it a shock. We enjoyed it seeing bullock carts and scooters, cars and large volumes of people. We even saw 6 men carrying a body in a shroud, presumably on its way to cremation. If you want to experience the true India and a very reasonable price, this is the place to go.

A perfect place to stay to explore Old Delhi markets and closeby sightseeing spots. There is a metro and Old Delhi railway station just a short walk from the hotel. Staff was extremely helpful, either booking an airport transfer, changing a room according to needs or bringing cold beer to our room when restaurant was just closed. Room was clean and neat. There is free wi-fi, but just near reception area. Breakfast provided was enough and nicely served.

The hotel has clean rooms, hot water was not a problem at any time and the food was surprizingly good. Old Delhi is not everyone´s cup of tea, the experience is overwhelming, especially for first time travellers. But you can get used to the hassle of the crowded streets and get the full India exposure. The metro is within walking distance and the view from the rooftop terrace is great.
The staff was friendly and helpful, the arranged taxi to the airport was on time and the rate charged was according to what we were told by others to be the going rate. A good choice if you want to stay in Old Delhi.

Decent hotel, nice staff. Had to wake up very early in the morning to catch train to Agra, and they serevd breakfast in my room. Were very helpfull, and everything was clean. Window had no view, but I geuss that is normal. It isnt the most expensive place to stay, so one shouldnt complain about that.
