Hello, I am arriving in New Delhi around 22:00 on Nov 16 and will be staying for 2 nights. I would like to stay in Paharganj since it is close to train station that I will be leaving from.

Travelling with my dad and looking for nice, clean budget accom. Does anything jump out at you as a great place to crash?

Thanks

cheats and touts

Just be careful of touts and cheats who are eager to make some quick money in the station and pahar gunj area. Take correct directions well in advance and ensure that you check in to a decent hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Star Palace for 3 weeks last month. Rupees 550/night got me a/c, double bed, friendly service. But don't let anyone walk you into the lobby because they will try, and they will get commission, making rate higher.

I'm finding this a great question as I'm still trying to nail down a hotel in Delhi that has a good price and decent facilites. I'm trying to decide between
Bajaj which is $80.00 but really pretty...kinda far away.
Ace which is also $80.00 but closer to a gal pal of mine, but I'm there for 5 days so seems kinda strange to stay there for just the two days.
Hotel relax and Ajanta. Reasonable price but I seem to see alot of conflicting reviews online. Some are pretty old. Is there a way to 'call out' to all the members to go through the HOTELS section here and put in some up to date reviews????

I'll be examining this thread with great interest as I'm starting to 'feel the heat' of making a decision.

I stayed at the Hotel Relax last month and thought it was one of the nicer hotels in Paharganj.

I just booked in November for Hotel Relax, didn't see any bad reviews. I'll post my experience when I return but looked good to me. 1000 INR a night for A/C single supposedly with a view...

I stayed in Hotel Relax in January and also last year. If you want the hub hub of Paharghanj and a perfect view of the chaos below then Hotel Relax is perfect. It is in Nehru Bazaar just of Main Bizaar. I paid 1200 for a double and I booked over the net and also confirmed by phone from Australia, no problems. It is clean, hot water, tv, fridge, bathroom. I have been to India many times and this is one of my favourite places to stay. Straight across the street their is a young Indian man who cooks up Singapore noodles on the street. The noodles are boiled and then added to a wok, he then adds oil, chilli, garlic, salt, cracked pepper and a some other herbs. This all takes a couple of minutes and they are delicious. However, you must tell him to go easy on the chillis. Bye the way you can eat in (bench on the street next to a cow) or take away. The other good thing about Hotel Relax is that it is on the wedding procession route. If you are there during wedding season you will get to see this from your balcony but if the temptation gets too much you can run downstairs and join in. Well that's what I did. The only criticism I would have is that if you get them to organise a pickup at the airport it costs 500 IRs which is a little inflated but then again I find 500 OK because you get picked up with no hassles and get dropped straight at the front door.
The balconies are shared balconies and not attached to the room. The only other catch is the temple which sounds like it is in your bathroom at 5.00am. Prayers over the loud speakers and an ear piercing bell will wake you very early in the morning and that can be a problem if you are not a morning person.

We have made our bookings for Hotel Relax in December. We have stayed there twice before and had no complaints. One suggestion: always ask for a room not facing the road (Nehru main bazaar) nor the temple next door as you will arise with a hellavu racket ech morning with chimes, bells and chanting!

We are facing the same situation

Four of us, students are going to Delhi from Kanpur next weekend. We want to stay in Pahar Ganj. Can we find a hotel(less than Rs.500/night) to stay for 2 nights directly after getting there?

I'm pleased to say I've booked the Hotel Ajanta as I really liked the location/services/pickup. BUT I'm taking a map to hotel relax and a couple of other places JUST in case.

Gonna post now for meetups in november!!! Would love to meet IMrs in Mumbai and Delhi.

Hopefully a fellow movie buff who would like to catch Om Shanti Om in the fancy theatre!!

We are booking Cottage Yes Please - partly because once my son heard the name he said we HAD to stay there. Hope its good - they have a reasonably priced triple room (1700r) which looks good in the pics. I wonder if its noisy or quiet???
