Hotel collaborating with scammers - stay away!
on Dec 3, 2019
As many others in the reviews before, same story for me: the hotel I had actually booked was not reachable due to road blocks, a „very helpful“ tourist agency took care of me at 3AM.. told me they had cancelled the pre-arranged three nights with the other hotel via booking.com for me (they did NOT!) and tried to sell me an expensive tour package (Jaipur - Ranthambore - Agra) for 1.000€+ and were disappointed I did not book anything straight away. However, as my local simcard was not working yet, and they did not give me wifi access, they helped me with this hotel.. conveniently enough, the hotel did not have wifi the same night also, so they could send me back to the very same tourist agency. Also, they charged me 2.000Rps per night, because my originally booked hotel was that price!
The hotel is cleanish, but bathroom is old and smells, my room was facing the extremely busy main street in a shady neighbourhood and the „good breakfast“ was a bowl of daal and some roti with masala chai.
On top of this, when checking out the receptionist asked me to pay the bill, which I already paid to the tourist agency.

First of all I did not get to the hotel by plan. I made a reservation at entirely different hotel. As it also turned out, there are no rooms available (they did not bother letting me know in advance), they told me to go to the tourist center, which looked like big scam, and there they directed me to the hotel Sehej. It all looks nice in the pictures, but when I got there, my room smelled like a dirty toilet. When I asked for something else, they gave me another room. It smelled a little bit less. Since it was 4am and I didn't want to drive around Delhi anymore, I took the room. There no towels, no toilet paper, sheets looked like they had been used for a mont or even more by different guests. There was no window in my room (!) and the TV did not work, because there was no outlet close enough to plug it in. Next morning one of the staff knocked at the door to offer breakfast, then it turned out, it costs 1200 INR. Whenever I wanted to go out, receptionists were giving me driver. And when I wanted them to take me to a shopping center, they "accidently" took me to the same "tourist center". When I already got nervous and asked to be taken to the mall, the driver told me, there is no cosmetic shop in the mall, and took me to some creepy store. I just returned to the hotel to be safe there. Next morning I decided to check out, going to another, more decent hotel, the taxi driver once again took me to the "tourist center". This time I was furious with both the driver and the "center", so I threatened to call the police. The driver got lost twice on the way to another hotel and asked for 2000 INR for a ride.
So if you want to get ripped off, or have too much money, go to this hotel. Hotel sorroundings do not look good, it looks like slums or so. At any cost avoid the hotel!

Bed runner were filthy.
No toilet paper in the bathroom.
AC noisy and not working properly.
The only thing why I did not give 1* review is the staff who came to wake me up for my train transfer
Bad area - I mean didn’t look nice at all
This place is a scam

This is a gross hotel and part of a scam. No hot water, not clean at all, holes in sheets, no toilet paper, gross towels, weird smell, and wanted us to pay for water bottles with broken seals. Some pros: good WiFi and AC.
What happened: Our flight landed around midnight, and our taxi driver basically took us the opposite direction of our hotel, then claimed the road was blocked due to political issues and he couldn’t take us. With no way to call a different cab he took us to a fake tourist agency. We spoke with our actual hotel on their phone, but it being 1 am on the opposite side of town they couldn’t pick us up. For some reason they made us wait around for over an hour before setting us up in this place, which was obviously the plan all along.
It’s definitely an unsafe area at night, but if it were daytime I’m sure we would have just refused and asked for a cab or just left. By this point it was 2:30 am so we stayed. The good news is it was mostly safe, though the staff are creepy. We got out of there early the next morning, paid $1600 rupees for one night. Our regret was the cab driver asked us for 3x the original for making him wait even though this was his fault. I wish we had told him off. Just leave this place if you unfortunately end up here.
The worst place ever- save your money even the owner sucks!

We stayed here for a night and we got the worst service possible! First you get dirty bed sheets, used wet towels and when we complained to the owner he blamed us. Even the food service sucked! When the service boy came to change our sheets, he complained and was extremely rude. Hell the Taj Mahal marble was softer to sleep on compared to this brick wall of a bed.
I suggest you save your money and go somewhere else!
