TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Shangri-La Dalhousie
this hotel is at the bottom of an unsafe stair case consisting of about 20 steps.
The "lobby' is dark, and the staff incompetent in any aspect.
The first room we were shown was in the bowels of this place and totaly unacceptable.We requested a different room and we were shown one on the same level as the reception. Though a large enough room, it
had much to desire. The room was dirty, the linens stained and filthy. They were changed when we requested them to do so.
The restaurant was closed but one could order a "few select " dishes.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone at any given time.

We thought leaving an hour to do a 20 minute taxi ride would be plenty but 1h 20 later we finally arrived at our new home for the night. (We learnt 2 things there; Indians have no concept of time and Delhi traffic must be multiplying by the minute). Our new base is Hotel Perfect. Hmm. Who knew Indians did irony?! To be fair, ...
... it was okay. However managing to get to this point proved near impossible due to the lack of organisation which we have learnt to expect yet still doesn't fail to irritate us and everyone else. To make matters worse being young white girls we are prime targets for people trying to scam us so we had a constant stream of dodgy random men trying to take us various places in the station, or sell us the tickets we 'needed'. It would be easy to be fooled and I can see ...
... a low, white bungalow surrounded by low walls, with a small temple and open grassy plot in the back, where he was assassinated while at prayer. There are raised cement outlines of sandal imprints, marking his last walk from his home out to prayers. There are slightly faded and dusty, but meaningful dioramas of various important moments in his life, with explanations both in English and Hindi. The whole place was full of uniformed school ...
