“good rooms, safe, clean, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

I love the Tara Palace. I found this place almost by accident in June 2011, but now I won't stay anywhere else, and every time I stay there I'm again reminded of how much I like this place. Rooms are spacious and clean, with cool white marble floors and wood furnishings. Every room is equipped with television and a refrigerator, though the refrigerator shuts off with the rest of the electricity when you take your room key out with you (this is standard in mid-level hotels, I've found). Bed linens are spotless and replaced daily, and the bathrooms are well-maintained. Room service is cheap, and the hotel restaurant makes quite tasty, safe, basic indian, chinese and continental food to order, which arrives piping hot. The service at this hotel is excellent - attentive, courteous, and pro-active without being pushy. They won't bug you for tips, but I found myself wanting to tip everybody because of how well taken care of I felt.

The only down side to this place is that there is no wireless throughout the hotel, though there is free wireless in the lobby, as well as a computer with internet access.

Don't be freaked out by the hotel's location in an alley - it's quite a safe neighborhood, and the location is actually really great - walking distance to jama masjid, red fort, chandni chowk, and a host of attractions. It's also quite near the metro, from which you can get to the rest of delhi very cheaply. The free transfer from the airport is also quite handy!

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms advertise a balcony, but it doesn't have a great view and the balcony is tiny...

I recently returned from India, and my first stay was at the Tara Palace. An added bonus for me was the free pick up from the airport. After a long flight from B.C. Canada it was great being picked up and not having to worry about getting to the hotel.
The staff were super kind and helpful. I was travelling with my daughter and we both felt safe and well taken care of.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, very safe and clean.

Right in the Old Cycle Market, if you want/like old markets in old cities, this is a great choice. We had read some reviews where people complained about having to walk down an alley to the hotel. It is very short - you can see the hotel from the entrance to the alley so unless you are hauling a lot of luggage, this really is not a problem.
The hotel is very close to the Red Fort; the Jama Masjid mosque and, of course, the myriad alleyways of the Old Delhi markets.
The hotel is clean, rooms are large and hot water was really hot and consistent - off hours, just ask them to turn on the boiler and they are happy to do so.
The restaurant has good food and breakfast is included in their room rate - choose the Indian unless you like cold toast.
There is a very helpful travel agent next door.

One of the best value for money hotels I've ever been too. Yeah, location is quite crazy, but looked quite safe . Clean linen, hot water, nice and cheap food from hotel menu (room-service)- no stomach problems.

If you want to stay in Old Delhi, then this is the place. No frills, great food, the front desk is extremely helpful. Do not go out at night if you are alone or a women....not the safest area. Clean room.
