worst place i ever stayed in. An absolute nightmare

Hotel Chanakya Inn
The worst hotel i ever stayed at in my life
Let me start by saying that this hotel is part of a scam involving Hotel Capitol @Airport also in New Delhi. Booking.com are advertising Hotel Capitol but they do not tell you that it has been closed for more than 1 year. What happens is the person who owned that hotel gives your name to Hotel Chanakya Inn and they put your name on their list but nobody tells you. I found this hotel in the vicinity by pure chance and they had my name on their list. I was told by a hotel 1 or 2 doors down from Chanakya Inn to go in there because they believed Chanakya Inn had some connection with hotel Capitol. Also i need to mention that hotel capitol had arranged to pick me up at the airport and i had been emailed and told that this would cost 850 rupees. Nobody showed up so I was left stranded at the airport. When I finally found Hotel Chanakya Inn had my name on their list, they told me that airport transfer was free and had no knowledge of my request to be picked up. They then proceeded to put me in a room on the 4th floor, the floor from hell. My room was right next to an incredibly loud musical elevator. Why is an elevator playing loud music every time it goes up or down? What made this worse was that there was an Indian psycho staying on the 4th floor who may well have been a hotel employee, and he wandered around the corridor moving furniture and shouting and going up and down in the lift for 2 hours until I phoned reception to change rooms. They put me in a room right next to reception desk and the 2 people working there proceeded to talk loudly all night and to crash and bang boxes. This is a disgustingly awful hotel. I never in my life will stay within 10 miles of this place again, that's how bad it was

I booked a room for three nights but stayed only one. The building looks old and not mantained: nothing to do with the pictures. When I arrived the blanket was dirty, with many big stains. I asked for a clean one at the reception and in 20 min a person arrived with one. After removing the old one, I coul see many big stains (even bigger) on the bed linen. I asked for a new one but I was answered that those were clean, it was just oil. At 21.30, I asked for a sandwich to the room service, and I was answered that they did not make sandwich at that time. The place is also noisy.
Good for stopover

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms clean and comfortable. Mahipalpur is very close to the airport and this hotel offers much cheaper prices and a great location for those looking to experience the lives of many in Delhi. Food and drink are mostly brought in. I didn’t find any hot water but that didn’t worry me and there were instructions how to turn it on.
