Clean place, good value for money
on Mar 29, 2017
We stayed at Hotel Shivam International for three days. Place is clean and within walking distance to the nearby market, New Delhi railway station and metro station. It is located in very quiet place, away enough from noisy streets.
Breakfast is served in the room and you have to wait sometimes a while to be served.
Did the classic "bait and switch" with rooms, ended up in a condemned building..

Hotel Shivam looked OK, almost upscale for Pahar Ganj. But..., they did not have a room (regardless that I had booked it through booking.com, had a booking number, etc.), so they said, "We have at another place" and send me packing. It's blocks away and the most crap-hole ghetto room I think I have seen in SE Asia (and yes, I've seen and stayed in some real nightmares here). Sheets dirty, stained, sticky with sweat or oil? Bathroom had NOT been cleaned since the sixties, looked like a condemned crack house bathroom. The floors were filthy with dirt built up against the wall, looking like a road gutter. I slept on the hard marble floors where I could clean it off enough with my shoes, laid a lungi out and wrapped myself up (no way I was going to remove my clothes here!). The bed was sticky and damp (like oil or something?), floor felt cleaner. Of course I didn't sleep, just had eyes closed and could be supine for a while after long travels.
They know you are stuck when you have a late flight in, so you have to accept whatever they give you or walk the dark alleys hoping someone will still be at a desk somewhere. Honestly, I should have walked away and slept on the street, on the steps of the metro station or anywhere, really, would have been cleaner than that room. Gawd....

Me and my two friends stayed there for one night only. It's actually not a bad place, it has a comfortable bed and a nice toilet, but it's not that clean. The only thing that bothered me the most is the ignorance of the staff, they are really not that helpful and nice. Otherwise it was a nice stay.
