Go for breakfast but I cant eat - Im feeling sick - yep! Im back on the no money thing. Was a bit disappointed at the hotel,we stayed here last year and they had the restaurant on the roof and although it was smoggy and noisy it was really good to watch the world go by - plus you could see giant monkey temple. They boxed it in so now theres like a …
So, after a long long wait at the airport, I finally met up with John, who checked in with just 1 hour to go before the flight was due to leave. Apparently, acting like your in a hurry and telling everyone in the security queue your flight is about to leave, works a treat, and most people will just let you straight through. This genious plan worked …
... I'm sure the airplane food from Qatar airways escalated it. Upon arriving to our hotel I proceeded to throw up for a good hour. It took everything in me to suck it up and drag myself out on to the hot streets of Delhi. Looking back it was well worth it but at the time I wanted nothing more than to be sitting in an ice bath with a bucket...I bought two cute tunics that I was pleased with. Day Two: Site Seeing, ...
... airplane collect their luggage and make their way to the exit, they changed the sign from London Heathrow to Geneva! This made me extremely nervous so I rushed over to an airport worker to ask what the heck was going on!! Lol He reassured me that the carousel was now dispensing luggage from London and Genevra and my luggage should be out soon. Right then I noticed one of our bags drop onto the carousel and soon after the other two soon followed! This was a major relief for all of ...
... fix the intended problem. Cultural, habitual, linguistic and religious barriers are really, really hard to see from the outside, really obvious to an insider, and once crossed by accident, really easy to become a source of sour relationships and misunderstandings.
There is almost NOTHING that is black and white in the world. There is almost nothing that you can completely call "right" or "wrong". This is scary and hard to come to terms ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sri Nanak Continental New Delhi
I had flights trouble before arriving to India and all my previous reservations were lost. So we made reservations to this hotel the day before through trip advisor. Since we only had two days left and we were still all the way up in Dharamsala, we took advantage of the service and also booked a tour to the Taj Mahal. The next evening we arrived and yes, this is not Connaught Place. But everyone that works there made our stay in Delhi so much better. When I presented the reception desk assistant with our reservations to go to Agra (The Taj and all) he made the necessary calls to find out what the tour consisted of and what we would get for our money. As it turned out, it was only a driver. Then he proceeded to make better arrangements for us at a third of the price!
Great place to stay excellent fresh food!!
We stayed here on 19th Oct and again on 26th October. Staff great management superb...thanx for the tour! Food fantastic. If you're looking for clean rooms at very reasonable prices then this is a good bet. I will be staying here agin in March 2007...Fabulous. Raj Randhawa B'ham UK
Average/OK hotel for India
This hotel is functional and most importantly, clean. However I struggled to get hot water pretty much all of my stay. The location is on a pretty horrible street, but hey, this is old Delhi. Air conditionning is very effective but my room had no window so was a bit dark. Generally OK, but for the money I think you can get more in Delhi.
Good bet for Delhi
Clean rooms. Staff was excellent -- honest and straightforward. Reasonably priced compared to others in the area. I read the reviews of other hotels in Delhi and chose this one because nothing else sounded very good. It turned out to be a decent place. The hotel is not as central as it sounds - the roads right around it have nothing exciting for a tourist. But the hotel staff was extremely helpful in getting us transportation and giving suggestions for shopping.
Room OK, but noisy and location not great
Hotel is in Karol Bagh, a very busy and non-tourist area of Delhi 10-15 minutes by rickshaw from Connaught Place / Old Delhi. Staff were very helpful - complimentary airport pickup, bottled water and train advice. Room was reasonable, but hotel was extremely noisy during the night resulting in a poor night's sleep. Tourists would be better finding a more central hotel.
The hotel is basically OK. However when we were there the restuarant was closed for refurbishment (didn't tell us that when we booked), and there were several problems with the air-con in our room. You need the air-con believe me!
An excellent choice!
Initially we were reluctant to book this hotel due to the relatively low price but we read the reviews and decided to go for it. We were collected at the airport as arranged and Sandeep and his staff did all they could to make our stay a pleasant one; nothing was too much trouble. The rooms have all been refurbished and provide all the facilities you'd generallly expect in a four star hotel, in the context of Delhi! It proved to be a good location, busy and congested outside but we always felt safe.
Good hotel..not a great area
Stayed here for 3 nights. The staff are really nice and helpful. There were 5 of us - and we had a massive suite which was brilliant with double bed; bunk beds and another room within.
the complimentary breakfast was fantastic with great variety. the rooms also have wi-fi internet access.
However, the power goes out quite frequently and can take a while to start again. The area is not great if you have a family as outside is mostly mechanic garages, and no families in sight.
overall it is better to stay in the connaught place area; however this hotel is great for the price.
What a great hotel!! Extremely clean. We had teenage kids and got a room with bunk beds which was very comfortable. The Maharaja suite was for sufficient for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The hotel has been recently remodeled and it shows. The bathroom facilities were extremely clean and well kept. It was our first visit to Delhi and the hotel staff treated us very well. They picked us us from the airport and dropped us off. Do not let anybody at the airport tell you the hotel is closed. This is a common tactic by scammers to redirect you to their commissioned hotels.
