“Please do not stay here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2009

Liked most: Leaving!
Liked least: Hard sell of tour/travel packages

We only stayed for two nights, but wouldn't have stayed for any had we not already paid via the internet. If you're thinking of staying at this hotel, please don't. I just don't want anyone else to have the same experience as us.

We arranged for transport from the airport which proved very useful, and the car driver was on time and very friendly. The hotel itself was down an alleyway, but I guess a lot of Delhi hotels are. The room was a good size, but even if the sheets and pillowcases had been cleaned, they certainly didn't look it. We ended up putting tshirts on the pillows before we dared lay our heads on them!

The area is very noisy at night. We couldn't shut out the noise from outside as there was an air con unit fitted to the window - not that it worked, as the plug had been cut off. Inside the hotel was also very noisy with staff shouting to one another and music playing. Could also hear another hotel guest being very ill in the room upstairs... Yuk! Always seemed to be about 10 staff around, and except for the very smiley doorman, no-one seemed to do much unless they thought there was a good chance of a tip!

On the first day, we asked reception for directions to the train station but he insisted on calling the manager. The manager arrived. Again, we asked directions. So when he led us outside and through the streets, we naively thought he was taking us there - no, he was taking us to the Mohan's sister hotel where he proceeded to 'hard sell' his tour packages. After an hour of explaining we weren't ready to buy anything, we left and he was obviously unhappy about it - not offering any help in locating the train station or even returning to the Mohan. We were now in an area completely unknown to us, in the middle of Delhi, on our first day there. To say this was a bit scary is an understatement, and just underlines how little the Mohan International thinks of their guests - perhaps people who do buy their travel packages get treated a lot better.

Please don't stay here unless you know the area, don't mind the noise, are able to say 'no' very forcefully, and are completely financially unable to stay elsewhere. I honestly think the good reviews on tripadvisor must have been put up by the manager, employees or friends of the hotel because I can't imagine any other reason why people would recommend this hotel to others.

Please don't stay here.

We stayed at the Hotel Mohan International this month for one night and although the room was very basic it was clean. As other people mentioned in their reviews there were stains on the sheets and the fact that my friends had a man sleeping on the floor outside of their room was very weird. I would recommend this hotel for travellers on a budget as it was cheap and it was a good location. I wouldn't recommend the hotel to women travellers (as we were), as there were times when we felt quite uncomfortable.

Bottom line - don't stay here. It's totally over-priced, and there must be better hotels nearby. The guy who worked the front desk was horrendous - when I asked him for directions to a specific restaurant, he asked me why I didn't just order room service, and refused to help me. When I tried to book a taxi to the airport, he tried to charge me double what we paid on our way in. The hotel is very noisy, and the free "breakfast" was pretty disgusting.

Stayed here for 3 days having booked on Expedia. It must have been decades since this hotel was last refurbished. The underside of the basin was covered in rust. Though the bedsheet you sleep on had been washed it still had old marks and stains on it. There are no bedsheets
to sleep under, just these rugs - not sure if they're washed regularly
too.

If you get a ground floor room don't expect to sleep until late! Noise
of buzzers (for people calling from their room) and voices through the
late evening and early the next morning make it very difficult.

Oh, and they give the hard sell on getting you to visit their travel agent. We did and ended up getting a package but only after refusing some of the hotels he offered as Tripadvisor had some shocking reviews
for one or two. The other hotels were good and having a driver for a week (which they offered) as well as having everything organised for you was actually really convenient so glad we did it. If your driver is a man called Mahender, you're lucky - he's really really lovely man
- always cheery and got great advice!

Avoid this place - you may have seen in advertised on the STA website but I would guess that STA have not stayed here. It is a very basic hotel and the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. We paid 15 UK pounds per night as we wanted our first few nights accomodation sorted out before we arrived but with hindsight there are a lot of similar hotels in the area which are much cheaper if you just walk in off the street.

The management also hassled us to try and get us to book tours through them and were very reluctant to accept NO for an answer.

The only advantage to this place is its proximity to New Delhi Railway station but as I say there are many other hotels in the immediate area which offer better value for money.

Get a Lonely Planet and make some phone calls.
