Grand Godwin Hotel New Delhi Reviews
Big fish in a little pond Nov 13, 2011
How I figure it you have one of two options. You can stay in a crappy room in a nice hotel or a nice room in a "ok" hotel. The Hotel Godwin showed me sometimes you can have a great room in a great hotel in an "ok" location.
Lets start from the inside out. First, free pick up at the airport is priceless. Once you pull onto your street it feels like your in mini vegas with all the lights (minus the drinks and girls). Its deficiently the "hotel street" without any of the things you'd really expect surrounding the tourists. Instead it seems the locals have chosen to use this street to parade, party and light off cherry bombs. Its loud, 4th of July or maybe new years eve loud....but every night. If noise is an issue I'd suggest staying somewhere else. If you can "bare it" then try an get a room on the back side of the hotel. If you don't care....well enjoy a luxury room overlooking the street (I swear I can hear people's cell phones wringing on the streets below).
Once you get into the hotel you'll be surprised by just how nice and modern everything is. Not "for india" but just in general, its nice. Little water on your way in during check in, free wifi if you go down and ask for it at the front desk and the staff is as nice as you might expect in india.
I watched the "travel liaison" charge a young family 500rps a piece to catch a cab to the train station (extortion in these parts) but thats India....you will hackle over 50c if you really want to. "getting ripped off" means you pay $5 instead of $1.50. Ask around for appropriate prices and when the guy overcharges you, remember this is a land of bargaining.
Back to the Hotel. The showers are amazing (waterfall effect with 4 body sprayers and 1 very large overhead) the rooms are very clean and trendy. No safes in the rooms but after leaving out a tip for the room service and still finding it on the table when I returned that evening, I'm pretty comfortable saying the staff is trustworthy.
Don't worry to much about the location, a 99c (50rps) "tuck tuck" ride will get you into the heart of the city each way. I'm very glad I found this place and would not only stay here again, I would highly recommend it to all.
