What do you call a place near the power centre in Delhi. The hotel is walk-able distance from 7RCR (Indian PM residence) so it seems like rooms facing his residence are not allocated (as told), so there you have few rooms lying vacant or used for government purposes.
The staff has the same attitude, though they try their best to appear courteous, but since its a job on which they cannot get fired they dont care.
The room which I stayed had an issue with A\C but repeated requests did not yield any results, also the hotel is used extensively by government employees (during my stay entire group >15 from IRS were staying there).
The food was average, cannot complain, but service need improvement. The parking outside the hotel is mostly filled by taxis, drivers for babus.
Overall I could say a golden goose left at the mercy of the famous Indian bureaucracy, which by sheer size, location and some upkeep would have given other private hotels a run for their money.
