TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Clark Heights New Delhi
The hotel is going through a lot of reconstruction which lessened the appeal of the place. The rooms were clean as was the bathroom. The only problem was that hot water was only available at certain hours of the day.
Due to the construction the kitchen was not fully functional. Dinner there was very poor in taste. Service was average. The complimentary breakfast however was quite good. There was adequate selection and well stocked.
The location is not the best either. It is smack in the middle of a busy part of the city and the view was dominated by a large overpass.
