Cultural reality check
Posted Feb 14, 2012
The hotel is in the heart of Delhi in an area that a typical american tourist will find frightening when fresh off the plane. That was our initial reaction. Upon further experience, it is not all that different than most streets in Delhi. I chose this hotel for location, as Mapquest determined it's location was blocks from the Nizamuddin train station. This in fact was not correct.
The hotel itself is old and, again, not up to usual american standards. The rooms and linen were clean.The bathroom was open style with shower over a drain in the floor, open to sink and toilet. The staff was very kind and helpful with our needs. They tried to help when my electrical adapter did not work with the outlets and were a good resource for information. Rooms are locked from the inside with bolts, and outside with a beautiful padlock.
It was fine for the one night stay for us, but if you are looking for something at least as good as say a Motel 6 level, this isn't the place. But if you're willing to take on a cultural adventure...a welcome to Delhi cultural reality check, this is a good start.
