This was our first time in India and didnt really know what to expect from any accommodation, it certainly wasnt a 3* but it was clean, room very basic, no toiletries so remember to take some with you, the roof terrace was ok, a bit shabby but had interesting things to look at so did the reception area, the huge...

Cool place. Very hippy. Nice furniture. Roof top terrace. Came for a beer and got spicy popadoms. Would return. Fairly popular with tourists . Is not what we expected when we were outside. Hidden gem in dodgy area.

I know you can't expect much else than noisy in New Delhi. This really was no exception. The rooms are really nicely decorated, we had a room with a balcony. The building is amazing. The rooftop is a nice place to have breakfast, but they also have lovely dinner dishes (also non-Indian – read: non-spicy). It is also a nice...

Came here on a very hot day and was glad that I had. Beautifully appointed rooms, courtyard and lobby. Very helpful staff. The roof top restaurant is nice. Prefer the rooms along the upper balconies, but didn't like the room I had once that was downstairs as much.

I traveled for three weeks in Rajasthan and stayed in five clean, comfortable hotels throughout. Jyoti Mahal came nowhere near the quality, cleanliness or quiet of the other places I stayed. From stained towels and pillow cases, to foul drainage smell to the sounds of sick guests echoing the halls, this place has much room for improvement. The food was...

Even if I booked a non-smoking room I was given one that smelled like an ashtray and the toilet didn't work. Next room smelled even worse, the towels wasn't clean, the bathroom full of fungus. The food in the rooftop restaurant is really bad and its terribly dirty like the rest of the hotel.

We spent 2 nights here & so disappointed... the photos on trip advisor are not accurate, has some old world charm but needs some TLC & cleaning. The walls in the rooms were dirty, the restaurants food was good but the boys need to be spending less time on their phones & some time cleaning, dirty & in dire need...

I love old, charming hotels full of history and pleasant atmosphere. I heard that this one was on of them. And yes, it was old, and it has atmosphere. But it was neither charming nor pleasant. The room had the mandatory strong electric white light, dirty walls and no light at all the the bathroom. It was also hard to...

We only spent one night here as a group, although my youngest son stays here whenever he is in Delhi. He loves it, as the location is good and he is treated very well by the management. Our stay was very pleasant, and we were taken care of very well. Our room was spacious. The bed was comfortable. The shower...
