It was a long three and a half hour drive to Agra. Luckily, we could sleep on the way! We picked up a local guide and went to the Taj Mahal. It was crowded and HOT! There have only been a few times in my life when I got the feeling I had when I first saw the Taj Mahal. The others were when I first saw the Great Pyramid, the Grand Canyon, Venice, …
We had to be on the road by 5:30. The airport was not that far away, but the situation in the Kashmir region made security a high priority! We had to stop about a kilometer before the airport and have the car, luggage, and us examined! We had to open up every carry-on bag. Then we had to load it back into the car. Once we got to the airport, we had …
We were picked up early at our hotel and barely had time for breakfast. We were told at check-in that we got complimentary breakfast. We ate quickly. No one was around to check us out, so we left. We are hoping it was complimentary! No one was chasing us out of the door!!!!!
We were taken to the Hawa Mahal, Palace of the Wind. It was …
... the hostel. All of a sudden the driver slams on his brakes to avoid hitting the car in front of us. The car behind us of course rear ended us. They got out and exchanged words and made some phone calls. Then the driver gets back in and starts driving again. The wheel was then making an awful sound. About five minutes later the driver apologizes and finally ask me if I'm ok. Glad he finally asked. Mostly I was just shaken up. For about a ...
... writing on the plane. I'll wrap this travel diary up by saying that it was one of most eye-opening and challenging photographic experiences I've ever had and has renewed my interest in street photography. Thanks to the TGL leaders, Kate and Mike, for all their encouragement, organizing and talented photography while always making the trip fun. An even bigger thanks to my roommate Tessa who also had a joie de vivre that reminded me to hang loose more and also ...

We didn't stay on the hotel much. We checked in and went to bed. the hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful. We are coming back in a week and have no problems coming back.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Connaught New Delhi
Expensive & not worth it
The only good thing about this hotel is its central location. Shops & restaurants are within 5 minutes walk. Rooms are small, not very clean and decor/facilities need urgently updating. A 2 star hotel for the price of a 4 star.
Reasonable hotel for short stay
Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2006, the positives are: good location, clean rooms, clean toilets, attentive staff, prompt room service.
The negatives are: small room, small toilet, old key cards to open room doors.
Overall its slightly better than most other delhi hotels, should be priced less.
Recomended for short or medium stay.
I agree with the previous review. The hotel is ok if all that you are looking for is bed, breakfast, shower and off you go for your Delhi tour and shopping. Clean but basic & no frills. We arrived at almost midnight but check in was hassle free. The counter staffs were awake, attentive and helpful as were all the other staffs we encountered during our 3 nights stay.
The hotel is just off Connaught Place which is 'central' Delhi. This is a good place to be. The hotel is basically a 'shower and sleep' hotel. The hotel appears to be in the process of refurbing. Our first stay was on floor 2 which has modern 'boutique' style rooms which were clean and tidy but quite small. The second stay was on floor 6 which has older rooms which were satisfactory but had seen better days. The price was the same for both. The hotel bar and restaurant were ok but there are better venues around the area. The hotel changes money at a reasonable rate but will only change around $100 US of travellers checks in one go meaning you need to keep changing them every morning and evening.
Rooms were small but nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was included and it was quite good. Staff was efficient.
A Room Lottery
Had 2 seperate stays here on our recont tour of India.
First time was fine, rooms are small, but equipped with everything you need. Food OK, and staff are pretty friendly. Really good location, only 5 minutes walk from Connaught Place and Pallika Bazaar for shopping. Quite happy with the hotel.
Second stay we arrived late, to find no hot water and a broken bed. Left it for the night, and they went it to fix the next day - next day still the same and problem was never fixed as we left the day after anyway. Room was much grubbier, but food still OK. Sems to be a lottery depending on your room!
Ok For a Couple of Nights
We stayed a couple of nights at the Connaught on arrival in Delhi. We found the staff to be helpful and courteous throughout. The room was smallish but clean and comfortable. It was not too noisy at night which was a plus given its proximity to Connaught Circus. It was over priced (£75 per night) but, from our experience, nothing like as bad as some of the previous reviews have indicated.
centrally located and decor to a reasonable standard. Room service was speedy and the restaurant had a good range of food.
Reception poor, not interested in resolving problems.
rooms at rear overlook the hockey (field) stadium and they are out practising at about 07:30 in the morning.
we were only there for one night, and the hotel served it's purpose, but I wouldn't rush back there
