For a low budget place this wasn't bad. The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was passably clean, although I found dust here and there, and the bathroom was worn. I caught a glimpse of some other rooms, which looked nicer than mine (I booked at a special low rate), and was allowed to shower in one that was larger than mine, but not as nice. There was a TV and A/C, and I had a door to a not-private balcony across the front of the building. Don't expect great things and it's just fine.

The restaurant was fine-to-good, although the (not included) breakfast buffet was cold. You can also eat on the roof (part "terrace dining," part furniture storage).

They can arrange travel of all kinds there too - I hired cars twice and was pleased with both drivers. I thought the prices were okay (Rs650-800/day for 8 hours within the city), but I didn't shop around.

It's about a 15 minute walk to Connaught Place, mostly on a main street - probably not safe to walk it alone at night, though.

Address: 36 Arakashan Road Ram Nagar, Opposite New Delhi Railway Station
Comparison: least expensive
Directions: Not actually opposite. Take a right out the station, under the bridge, then the second left. The hotel is a ways down on the left.
