“Could be much better”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

This hotel was selected by my company as I was attending an exhibition. I was worrying prior to arrival due to the previous reviews. Hotel is relatively well located south of New Delhi on the Mahatma Gandhi Ring Road. Simple lobby and rooms. However would need serious maintenance. Light bulbs not working in room, a/c remote also not working, A/C noisy. Had some remaining stains on the already washed bedsheets. Gave laundry to be done in a morning and only got it back on the following day in the evening. Walls in the first room I got were dirty. Bathroom in the second room however was clean. I did not expect much from breakfast, however as tehy are small they cook eggs à la minute in the kitchen so this was ok.
Finally, room insulation is terrible and I was kept awake by other guests partying until over 0300 hrs on two consecutive nights.
Overall this could be a fine hotel with better attention to maintenance an cleanliness. Would not stay again if no need to do so.

Room Tip: All similar, no views. If high expectations go somewhere else.

The rooms were nice and very comfortable. The Breakfast was not upto the mark though.. Stayed in July 2011 for 3 days.. The Air-conditioning system was not working when I checked in but the staff was prompt in getting things sorted out. Would recommend travellers to stay here if you have work in the South part of delhi or else at this price you can get a good bargain at other parts as well.

stayed here two nights, on arrival in Delhi and night before departure. Room was clean on first visit, bed sheets dirty on second visit. Doors were insecure with a big enough gap around door that you could see into room from outside. On second visit seems they had run out of card keys so each time we wanted to go into room had to get member of staff to open door. Also seems they had ran out of cups at breakfast as we had to wait about 20 minutes at breakfast for a cup of tea.

We stayed one night at this hotel while on a family trip to Delhi and Agra. The included breakfast the next morning was good but not stellar. It seems like a hotel for people on business trips. It was fine for our purpose; a place to sleep at for a night. The room was clean, but I had a bit of trouble getting hot water for a shower in the evening but had no problems in the morning. Overall the hotel is average to slightly above average.

Gone for a business meeting at Delhi and our company put us up at this hotel. It's an overall average hotel good for folks who don't intend to stay too much there but just hop in and out.

Room quality was decent. Food was not all that great. i ate out most of the time. The breakfast was just about ok, didn't like the options too much, stuck to fruits and fruit juices.

the bed was comfortable and decent cable tv options. Did not use too much of their services.
