Paula.suitor.7 stayed here on Jan 25, 2013 during their trip titled: Paula.suitor.7's Great Adventure.
After 3 flights, countless time zones and endless episodes of Mad Men, I've arrived in India. I had read a lot about how crazy the airport in Delhi could be but I have to say, it's got Pearson beat. For a city so 19 million, it's pretty damn organized. I'm staying at a very typical 3 star hotel that I've experienced in this part of the world before …
We had breakfast and departed our hotel for the Red Fort (Lal Qila). I cannot express to you how wondrous this place is. First of all this place is freaking huge, I can't imagine how glorious this place would have been if the British hadn't demolished a lot of it and the locals hadn't ruined it by looting the semi-precious and precious stones from …

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.
