I happened upon this place while searching for a home base to do a little exploring at the tail end of a business trip. This is a textbook example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, with the entry-way being a narrow, dusty laneway with a laundromat and a few other businesses on it, off a noisy, chaotic market street.

Inside, the staff are courteous and eager to please. My room was clean, with a basic bathroom and a sitting area with a couple of chairs. Food is available either in your room or in a rather stark-looking restaurant on the third floor and there are a reasonable number of items to choose from.

Overall, I’d say that this is a good home base to take in the sights, sounds and smells of the area.

Location seems bit sketchy but this hotel is a hidden gem. Clean and well maintained, close to chandni chow market. Very helpful staff. Free pick up form airport and they arrange a taxi for me to go back to airport as well

Basic room, but very clean bathroom and good airconditioning. No safe but secure lock up room with basic bed and limited linen. No bottled water provided. In the area of the markets so very busy surrounds but if you are aware, this is a great location for the hustle and bustle and near Arun Jatley Cricket Ground which is why I chose this site. Friendly check-in team and experience

Please stay away from this horrible place. I just went inside to ask them very nicely if I could use their wifi for only one minute to contact my friend and they asked me why they should do that. I am explained that I had just arrived in India and didn't have any internet and they still refused to allow me to use their wifi for only one minute. My friend was meeting me there at their location and I needed to let him know I had arrived. Still they refused. They were most unfriendly and undesirable people to deal with. The area around the hotel is absolutely disgusting and the reception was extremely dirty. Please do yourselves a favor and book somewhere elsr

Clean, excelent service, quiet, spacy room. The area looks a little scary at first sight but it´s safe, no worries. Centric, interesting places around. It worth it. Walking distance to the red fort, the Jama Masjid, many temples, metro station, in the middle of the market.

I have stayed at the Tara Palace so many times that I cannot count. The staff are wonderful. The hotel is at a good distance from the noisy street and this you are assured a good night’s sleep. And the food is definitely worth eating! I will always consider the Tara Palace my home in Delhi.

Hotel was clean, with an impressive lobby,although the room was smallish, but had all the facilities there.
The historic places near the hotel like Red Fort, Raj Ghat, Gurudwara Sheesh Ganj and many other places of Old Delhi are at walking distance form the hotel.
Hotel staff was very friendly and supportive but the thing which was most useful for me was the internet connection the my room as I am a techie ;-) so cant live without it.
I would like to visit this hotel again soon.

This hotel was clean, however the experience of this hotel due to its location and the hotel staff was awful. This area of old delhi is massively crowded with men who stared with contemptuous disdain or who agressively hassled us for custom/tours you name it. If this is your first night in India after a long flight I'd recommend you stay in Connaught place or central Delhi. Certainly wouldn't recommend this hotel or area to a lone female - the amount of hassle and contempt you receive is not worth it and the area could well be dangerous at night.

The hotel staff directed all comments to my (male) companion, even when I asked questions; the lobby was continually filled with around 10 men who sat about and gawked at my chest. Been to India several times before with no problems, was dressed conservatively, never had this sort of intimidation in a hotel.

The hotel manager woke us up with a phone call at 7am on our first (and last) morning there demanding to know our plans for the day, then when we went out, followed us down the street agressively hawking various tours/deals. Later he told me he had to photograph me and got out a computer camera - when I asked why he became very agressive and threatening, and only backed down when my partner intervened. No other hotel during our stay in India requsted a photo of either of us.

When we ordered room service there were four visits to our room - one to deliver the food, one to take the plates away, one to get the money and another for the change and to get a tip. Annoying.

This hotel would probably be bearable after a few weeks acclimatising and developing a thick skin, but if you're going for a couple of weeks holiday I'd advise you to pick somewhere out of old delhi, and certainly not tara palace.

Flying direct from Melbourne I wanted a hotel in Old Delhi that would be totally different from normal, but not too total. Tara Palace lived up to all expectations. The area (as described in other reviews) is a bit scary but the hotel itself is a surprisingly civilised oasis in the Chandni Chowk area. How it got to be there must be a story but I don't know it.
Pickup from the airport worked perfectly. The room was fine, with working air-con and wi-fi. The hotel restaurant was adequate (non-veg). The roof area was not exactly a roof garden but the view over Old Delhi was memorable. I would stay there again!

I arrived at by myself at night., and as a female was a little apprehensive. I was a little put off at first as it is tucked away down a lane in a not so welcoming part of Delhi. But upon entering I was given excellent, friendly warm service. The rest of our party of 14 arrvived over the next day and all received the same treatment. The rooms were clean and neat. The restaurant served tasty food and nothing was too much trouble. The rooftop terrace provide excellent views over the Red Fort. Perhaps if you were travelling solo(female) or first time to India, it is not ideal,but for couples, or groups it is fantastic. Would recommend. Internet access in the rooms plus cable TV, prompt 24 hour room service. Nearby is busy Chandi Chowk which in day is colourful and you can buy fresh fruit at markets. Nearby is Haldirans -great clean Indian fast food plus fantastic sweets! And if you must there is also a Mcdonalds nearby

Hallo, solltest du dich für dieses Hotel entscheiden, hast du das ungefilterte Leben des alten Delhi unmittelbar um dich herum sowie zwei wichtige kulturelle Sehenswürdigkeiten. Etwa 300 Meter vom Hotel findest du das Rote Ford (Red Fort) und die Freitags-Moschee (Jama Masjid). Ich habe Holi in Bikaner erlebt und denke, dass du an diesem Tag erst am Nachmittag Einkäufe machen kannst. Gehe in jedem Fall aus dem Hotel auf die Straße, aber in Kleidung, die du danach eventuell wegwerfen kannst. Sollte dir Holi zu anstrengend werden, gehe in die Freitags-Moschee. Moslems feiern kein Holi. Achtung: Öffnungszeiten der Moschee erkunden. Viel Spaß wünscht Lothar
