Don't let the photos mislead you, this hotel is definitely not worth the money it costs (offical rate 1,600 rupees). Yes, it is conveniently located near New Delhi railway station (and airport express metro link) but that's basically it. It is hidden in a dark and bleak alley, full of rubbish and stray dogs and it's not easy to find. So be prepared for touts trying to take you somewhere else while wandering through this horrible area of Delhi.

I received an uninterested welcome by a not very professional receptionist, then I was shown my room. I was given the option to stay at another hotel they belonged because there were works going on, but I preferred to stay as I was exhausted from the intercontinental flight. I will not comment on the noise then, which I decided to bear.

The room was worn and dirty, sheets stained, windows not sealed and the extractor in the toilet - which was horrendous - was actually a fan pushing air out of a hole in the wall, all of which caused the cold January Delhi air to flow freely through the room. There was a decrepit air conditioning device and a heater which obviously didn't work.

When I woke up early to catch a train I found someone sleeping on a mattress in the corridor outside my room, as well as the receptionist, who was sleeping on a sofa.

I was glad I was only staying two nights, in fact when I was back in Delhi after my tour in Rajasthan I went somewhere else.

The only good things I found were hot water, which was available whenever I needed it and abundant, and breakfast, which was served in a decent room and was buffet-style with hot and cold dishes. I just had cereals but the hot food didn't look bad.

Unless it's your last resort, stay away from this hotel.

We were pleasently surprised when hotel taxi picked us from the airport and took us to our destination.The entrance was bright and welcoming,and we were greeted with glass of cold fruit juice.We were given a room above the reception area on 1st floor.We were soon moved to top floor above the reception area on request due to a better view of the city.We found management very obliging and helpful.Nothing was too much trouble for them.Mr.Rama[manager] showed us several rooms before we chose one.The room was clean and bright,bed was very firm and comfortable ensuring good night sleep.There was plenty of hot water for showers,and floor staff were always present to clean room on request and to provide you with toiltries.The food was excellent.There was a wide choice of menue at breakfast time which changed daily,and the dinners were just as exciting and tasty.The restaurant was very clean and we had a choice to either eat inside the restaurant or out side on a balcony.We found everyone helped us to make our stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: room on top floor above the reception area we found to be the best,as room is bright with better view.

We got a helpful pick up from airport, secure and comfortable room and reasonable meals in restaurant. The surprise was that they would not process any credit card with a chip inserted. That could have caused big probs re timing for airport if my son hadnt had a basic card. Would rate it a basic transit hotel close to railway.

Room Tip: Asi for larger room on upper levels

Honestly I could kick myself for booking the trip with the manager. After a long flight and fighting Delhi belly I just went with it. It's over priced and one of the hotels was disgusting, we left and forked out for a different hotel. The trips can be done at half the price on your own. We spent days in a car which could have been done by train. Our driver was lovely though. Complimentary guide at taj Mahal was very rude and obnoxious, didn't like women.

The hotel is noisy all day and all night inside with lifts up and down, staff shouting to each other, door banging, chairs being dragged across the floor etc. The rooms are average and ok location.

I expect the manager will write a reply which will be just words. I've read the other reviews and nothing has changed. The only good thing about this place is the hot shower.

AS i am regular visitor of chanchal hotel from last 2 years. After hectic working schedule in delhi when in the evening i come to the hotel i feel homely atmosphere here.& behaviour of the staff is very friendly and as usual rooms are neat, clean and comfortable . Staff service is very quick and fast. besides all..... u get charged up by listening to the lounge music and having your meals in the restaurant . By my long experience with this hotel i always suggest my friends and relatives when they come to delhi stay at this place .

USP..... Buffet at breakfast with large variety of food which no body gives at paharganj and u r very near to new delhi railway station

Room Tip: Rooms with series 101 are very good
