Met my expectations and sometimes exceeded them.
Cheap and quality food, staff overall very accommodating, plenty of TV channels.
My stay went very well. The staff were extremely accommodating from the get-go, the room service was excellent (despite the fact that the guy who always answered the phone didn't seem to know that much english) and despite it's location in the heart of an inner-city slum, I always felt safe enough within its walls. The biggest knock against it is its location. I'm actually extremely surprised that much a well-run and relatively clean hotel is located in such a dodgy part of town, but I suppose it's further testament to the owners that it's as good value for money as it is. Would stay there again, although perhaps I'd bring a surgical mask with me whenever I have to walk to the metro station, and earplugs to block out the endless car horns when I'm trying to sleep. I suppose that's the reason why it's a budget hotel though.

Good Stay
The best thing about this hotel is the travel manager TINKU. He arranged a great tour for us and we had a great time in north india.

Not a bad stay, but for the tour operator...
Roof top, mostly good hot water, good location
For a budget hotel, it wasn't too bad. The room was spacious & comfortable, and service was good & staff friendly. Blackouts now & then - usually short term - but remember to switch the hot water system back on after them or you will have cold showers, otherwise good hot showers - it was very cold when there. Avoid street facing rooms on lower floors - VERY noisy street. Proximity to transport is great - metro & New Delhi mainline station close walk & tuk tuk to Connaught Place area for about 100 rupees or under, depending which part you are going. The rooftop has great views of the surrounding areas of the city & is a relaxing spot as the sun goes down to get away from the traffic below. Food is not bad. The thing that really was annoying to the extreme was the tour operator guy (others have mentioned him here). Calls to the room constantly about appointments to organise my travel in India - and he wouldn't take no for an answer. I finally sat down with him & he offered me ridiculously expensive tours & insisted plans I already had were wrong and "no one goes there this time of year" or "no one travels by train to go there" and so on ad nauseum. His solution was always a very expensive alternative option to go somewhere else & cancel my current plans. Fortunately I didn't listen to him & had a great time - everything he said turned out to be nonsense. I nearly did book a car day trip to Agra with him, but went & got quotes at 2 other places which were nearly half his prices for the same thing! He was easily the worst thing about the place, but otherwise it wasn't too bad overall.

there are better
clean room and bedding scalding hot water
there are two reasons to stay here...the clean bed and the hot water after that i seem to struggle for any positives except maybe the friendliness of the staff. The hotel is on the edge of the action and a good walk or tuk tuk is required to see anything or get anywhere even the tube station. The hotel is located such that if you walk out the front door left you are into an abyss which is unlit at night and not so friendly.the local drunks queue at the bottle shop window next door. There is an alley way running down the one side which gets traffic and screaming kids till well after 1am. There is a three storey apartment block opposite side of the alley and the noise from it is bad and on the top apartment the dog likes to bark all night till its time to wake up.The traffic noise out front with the insecent horn use is not good either. I say this because all the rooms face out to the road or the alley...I had ear plugs and it made no difference....good luck

Photos and review of hotel was misleading
Made up for the non-appearance at the airport by sending me to the railway station the next morning
Time, wear and tear has turned this hotel into a dreary one. The reviews and the photographs did not meet my expectations. Was a let down especially when I had communicated by e-mail and phone to inform of my arrival time and pick-up to be left waiting at the airport. However, all this was made up for when I was offered a ride to the train station the next day.

Nice ish rooms, OK location.
Good location, cable TV
As hotels go in India this one is quite nice. TV has cable and the hotel is within walking distance to the main backpacker area. Shower is dreadful, no hot water and just a trickle. Overall its the best of a very bad bunch...

Reasonable (budget category) hotel in India
Metro station, pretty close. Liquor shop, right next door. Eateries and restaurants nearby.
Reasonable hotel in India (among budget category hotels). I stayed at half a dozen hotels in India to date, and I can say that this is a good hotel (value for the money). Sure, this is no 5 star hotel, but there is nothing particularly wrong with this hotel, either. Hotel staffs are fine. I do not name a name, but I personally know one hotel **** cough *** Hotel R. in Karol Bagh *** cough *** where every staff acts like an a**. (During my stay) everyone working at this hotel acted pretty friendly. The hotel is situated near Connaught Place. If you are physically fit, you can walk to CP. Same as New Delhi railway station. Of course, if you’re catching a train to travel to a different part of the country, you need to hire a 3 wheeler or taxi though, because it’ll be pretty difficult to move around with a big suitcase and what have you. Let’s see …. plus points. Liquor shop is located right next to the hotel. Metro station is also pretty close. There are a fair number of eateries and restaurants nearby also. Infamous Sita Ram is 10 minutes walk from the hotel. U-Like restaurant is 8 minutes walk(?). The guests can also arrange tours at the hotel itself. Pretty convenient; no need to walk into a questionable travel agency in the neighborhood. I took a tour from this hotel, and it all worked out. What else …? Again, this is no 5 star hotel. This hotel is nothing like Ramada or Taj, but if you are a budget traveler, this hotel is all right.

Not great but they sort of try
restaurant good except for breakfast, easy to get autorickshaw
rooms are not very clean, street outside is under construction and noisy. The staff are nice but sort of incompetent. When you check in, a "travel agent" will try to arrange city tours for you. Don't arrange anything with him. They didn't answer my emails asking for airport pickup, but they did take us to the airport for free instead.
