Decent quality hotel for the mid price rangePosted Oct 26, 2011
Location: The area was well set up for tourists. However, that does mean that a lot of people are out to get as much money as they can for auto rides etc and there is a lot of begging. Again though, if you are travelling anywhere in India, you most likely have to expect this. I would definitely recommend doing the street children tour run by the Salaam Balaak Trust. It gives a few tips and good insights into how to deal with the begging situation, and lets you see what is being done to address the issue.
We we quite happy with our stay at Chanchal Deluxe. Its a little bit shabby round the edges but you expect that in India for that price range. All facilities were very adequate. En suite bathrooms are basic (eg. the shower is not separated off - wet room) but have everything you would need. I really appreciated the big TV in our room as I spent a couple of days stuck in being ill! Lovely hotel restaurant with friendly staff. We used room service a couple of times and had no problems, and we were very pleasantly surprised to find that our bill was less than we thought it would be at the end of the stay. The surrounding area is very touristy. The hotel is near to the road that we affectionately called the Las Vegas of Delhi due to all the hotel names being up in lights! There are a couple of decent shops to get drinks and snacks and an internet cafe. The only thing that we couldn't really find was any other good (safe looking!) places to eat in the local area, so we ate in the hotel restaurant, but that was fine. Not far from the Main Bazaar where you can buy all the souvenirs you could wish for, and conveniently situated for the Metro (India's underground train system).

Nice hotel extremely convenient to New Delhi railway stationPosted Aug 16, 2011
The hotel is clean, nice and well-maintained. The restaurant is very good also. The staff go the extra effort to get you what you need. Very nice hotel. So why only 4 stars? The neighborhood, Pahar Gunj, in New Delhi is total chaos. So, even though the hotel is nice, you want to look elsewhere if your goal is to sight see around Delhi: the metro station entrance is across the flyover bridge and you'll have to get through the messy neighborhood that the hotel is in. So, find a hotel in a better neighborhood if your plan involve more than one day in Delhi. However, if you want a nice, clean hotel convenient to New Delhi Railway Station (such as if you are taking a train to points outside Delhi), I highly recommend this hotel.

hotel chanchalPosted Apr 30, 2011 on Hotels.com
I am so glad to have booked in hotel chanchal deluxe. Thanks to Mr Guman Singh the general manager, he made our vacation worthwhile. he was very helpful,,. he planned our daily itinerary in delhi, where to go.. what to see.. with the hotel car and a driver. He also arranged our trip to agra and jaipur including our accommodation and package tour and our ride back to the airport.. all of these for a very minimal fee. My husband, me and our friends will definitely stay here again on our next future trip,
