Historical Traveller Reviews of Grand Park Inn Hotel
An oasis of calm in frantic city!from EeyoreCumbriaUK
The rooms were very clean, breakfast adequate although the toast comes already buttered and wrapped in foil which makes it extremely soggy!! I requested mine to be left unwrapped which was much better.
The Hotel is in a strange part of Delhi - lots of motor shops, motor bikes etc (not forgetting our omnipresent bovine friends!).
Tuk tuks into the centre of Delhi or to the extremely spotlessly clean metro were inexpensive. The markets are wonderful, people very kind and friendly everywhere it seemed and at no time did we feel threatened when in Delhi.
Once you get over the initial culture shock, India is a lovely place to visit and this hotel is great as an escape from the frantic hussle and bussle of the city - extremely cheap too - £125:00 for four nights B&B for two of us including transport to the airport about 50minutes drive away!
Our stay was peaceful and pleasing!from ramushiroor
Got really good response for our call.
Till the moment we stepped into the allotted room, we were kind of tensed about not getting our expectations met. Our main concern was the cleanliness of the bathroom.
We were glad to see the clean bathroom.
Food was good.
Felt homely, calm and safe.
Room interiors were above average.
We did not have any major problem other than little bit of noisy A/C and had to call up reception every time we wanted hot water except morning hours.
Management need to train the staff on communication skills.
good ideafrom Irina24
location - not far from CP
manager - competent (very unusual)
rooms - quite big, newly renovated and literally spotless - highest mark for cleanliness!
breakfast area - too small, people have to wait
breakfast - rather poor
room service - quite good ( if you close your eyes on a bit of cheating)
Generally - practically best solution in that price range
great place to stayfrom sens1ble
The hotel is quite near the centre of Delhi in a safe area you can ask the hotel to arrange a pick up and drop off for you at the airport
The hotel is very good value for money I can recommend this hotel

Not a Great Experiencefrom ZQKhan
Pluses and negativesfrom orangutan2008
The area around the Grand Park Inn is not good. We got conned by a nearby optician store (Punjab Opticians) that the Grand Park Inn owner (Mr. Madan Pai) recommended, and the whole area seems unsafe for women at night for sure. A taxi driver nearby also tried to con us. Someone later told us that this area is shady.
I also recommend NOT purchasing the tour to Agra and Haridwar that Mr. Pai offers. Besides the high price in comparison to hiring private taxis, our driver (arranged for us by Mr. Pai) forcibly took us to a restaurant called the Maharajah Palace where he gets commission and other perks. We told him not to take us there on the way back from Agra, but he still went there and drove on the wrong side of the road in order to get there (other motorists were all staring at us incredulously, which rarely happens in India where the driving is crazy as it is)! Food at the Maharajah palace costs five times what is typical in Delhi. The driver also took us to a place called Little Taj in Agra which is entirely useless so that he could get a commission on our purchases. On top of all this, the driver asked us if we wanted to hire a pandit (priest) from him for our trip to Haridwar on the next day!!! The guide at the Taj who was also arranged by Mr. Pai kept pressuring us to have a professional take our photos.
Also, on the following day's tour to Haridwar that we purchased from Mr. Pai, if you can not tolerate cold, do not stay at the Khanna Palace (also owned by Mr. Pai). They have nonexistent or terrible heating and do not provide a personal room heater if needed. We ordered an extra bedsheet, and got a wet one.
Overall, the cleanliness and the relatively low cost of the hotel is a plus that is negated by all the negatives I listed above.
Clean and comfortablefrom Rae_007
There wasn't much hot water and you had to call the reception to turn the hot water on and that took 10 mins to heat up. But that was fine and we got used to that.
The food was good and the service also.
Great stay in Grand Park Innfrom travelling_family07
liked most is that you actually feel you are in India when you walk outside, the atmosphere is still a bit laid back with even the occassional cow walking by. It is central to most markets and there are very nice and clean restaurants nearby. The rooms were sparkling clean and service is immaculate, including some personal tourplanning. We will definitely stay there again.
We had a great Stay!from photojc
For 25USD a night, we had a suite with 3 beds. I guess is designed for a family? Room is large & clean, and the bathroom is clean and with good hot water supply. Sounds insulations can improve a bit as we can hear dogs barking throughout the night, though that didn't really bother us.
Manager was very helpful in advising us on where to go to find food, internet, and organise day tour for us to go to Agra or transport to airport. Overall find the staff very friendly and helpful. Though the reception desk tends to over rely on their boss, sometimes we find that every question goes back to this big boss who is very helpful! Hence, only problem is if the big man isn't there sometimes or is busy, you cannot get your answer quickly.
I agree the stuff can appear pushy for tips. We had 3 porters 'helping ' us with our two hand carry luggages! Though we did tip a bit (not every time), we find the staff deserves them as they really go out of their way to help us. For example, they went outside to look for beer for us after 10pm, because the kitchen was closed already, when we ordered room service! We also tried their bargain tasty dinner there and is great indeed!
Overall, we find this hotel at a great location (5-10mins walk from metro station, 2 stops from Connaught Place), and great value (as long as you don't expect 5 stars hotels for less than 25USD a night!) and good service. We will definitely go back again if we do visit Delhi again, just hope they will maintain their high standard, as this looks like a pretty new hotel to me, and I am hoping that's not the reason why they are so good now!
