Seems like a hidden gem in Delhi. Room was properly clean, comfy bed, good location (short walk to metro - 3 stops to Connaught Place), staff professional and friendly, good restaurant (although a bit expensive). I booked through Expedia for about $50 Canadian a night and this included hotel pickup (in a nice, a/c car).

I stayed in the hotel for four nights for my business meeting with a client. The hotel staff is nice and the rooms are very comfortable. The A/C of the room they provided was, however, very noisy. They shifted me to another room on request the very next day. This room had split A/C, so I could mange my sleep during night. The room was impeccably clean. The toiletries they provided were good. The complimentary breakfast served by the hotel in their roof top restaurant was excellent.

The stay at the hotel was excellent except for the problem faced on the first night due to humming of A/C.

There really are no words for how great the customer service was at this hotel.

We booked the rooms online through Hotels.com while we were traveling in India and really just took a gamble that it was a decent place to stay. One room was booked as a deluxe (which is the cheapest option) and the other was an Executive (slightly more for a better room).

When we arrived at check in, the better room was given to my parents accidentally and my husband and I were shown the "deluxe" room. ( I will have to admit that it was not great. It was by no means dirty, but it was pretty small and only had a small AC unit. It was definitely an appropriate room considering the price and location though) I told the hotel staff that we had paid more than my parents, but that we didn't have the heart to ask them to leave the room for this one, and asked if there was anything they could do. They were extremely accommodating and brought us to a beautiful suite that was available. They told us that they would give us that room for a night as a courtesy and we would have to take the deluxe for the second night as this one was more expensive than what we had paid for. This room was great. Very spacious, gorgeous hardwood floors, very clean, flat screen tv and nice bathroom with tub and marble looking sink / floor area, and amazing bed and pillows. The nights stay was so great so we decided to just ask how much we would have to pay additional to keep it again the next night. When we asked, their response was "dont worry about it, you can just keep the room again at no charge." They said this AFTER we had already agreed to pay more for it. What hotel would do that?

Later, we told them of our plan to check out of the hotel and visit the Taj Mahal (a five hour drive from delhi) the next day and needed a place to keep our luggage until we got back in the evening before our flight. Not only did they accommodate that request, they even offered a FREE room after we returned from our day trip so we could shower and freshen up before goign to the airport. Seriously? What hotel offers that?

Based on the overall hotel, I'd say that the room types above the deluxe grade deserve way more than 3 stars. The only cons I would give this hotel is that their elevator was not working (but they were in the middle of fixing it so it is not likely going to be an ongoing problem) and that the stairwells to the floors didn't have AC which made for a pretty hot trip to your room and back. That's truly all I could say for the cons. Its defintiely in the heart of one of the shopping districts so if you want quiet peaceful surroundings, this isnt the place for you. (although, we stayed on the 2nd floor and did not hear any street noise). If your looking to be in the heart of it all, this is definitely the spot for you.

Also, the restaurant there was yum. Prices were extremely reasonable and their menu was pretty extensive. We were only in Delhi 2 days and ate there 3 times. Really good food and the service was beyond exceptional there too.

Its pretty clear I was a huge fan of this hotel. The staff really does go above and beyond to accommodate their guests. I would absolutely refer this hotel to any family members or friends looking for a place to stay in new delhi.

Thank you Hotel Clark International for an awesome stay!

the hotel is not bad for being a 3 star. The problem is the surroundings. Big public works are going on in Delhi this year: they are building 2 new subway lines, one highroad and new footpaths everywhere, so there are road yards everywhere; they dig the earth and put it on the pavement of the roads, so all the vehicles passing by lift dust in the air and so Delhi is covered by a huge cloud of dust, in the city center like in the suburbs, and there is rubbish everywhere too.

THis is the place to stay in Delhi, since this is one of the Budget Hotels to have a Full Generator Back-up in case of Power Failure.

Rooms are great, bathrooms are a little dated, but nice and clean

Excellent Indian & Continental Breakfast.

Dot not opt for rooms without breakfast, as this is the best place for breakfast.

All in all a great place to stay for a budget

We had an excellent experience with Clark Internation hotel. Firstly the location was perfect for us - in the middle of Karol Bagh (large shopping area in midle of Delhi) not very far from Cannought Place or the New Delhi Railway station. We were even picked up from the airport by a driver but wouldn't think you'd find it hard to locate. We got around by foot, train or autorickshaw easily and beat the traffic! The lobby is well appointed with expensive marble and antique furniture. The staff were very professional and polite - we felt special right form the start. We stayed in a presidential suite which was worth the extra cost - very clean, homely, large king sized bed, good tv and wireless access (most importantly!) bathroom was beautiful and spacious - provided everything we needed.
Service was probably the best we'd experienced overseas - prompt, friendly and courteous staff who made sure we didn't have to ask for anything!
We had our breakfasts upstairs in the restaurant which provided Indian and continental meals - lots of variety and a great "British feel" to it with nice views of the city below.
Overall the best parts - 1. Location 2. fantastic room 3. service/value for money
Worst parts - having to leave it :(

We booked our stay her for the first few nights in Delhi and then wandered around looking at some of the other hotels in the loney planet but nothing was a patch on this one so we ended up returning two more times! The staff were always welcoming and there was a real sense of safety. We booked through Expedia and then directly through the hotel for the other two stays. Expedia was half the price of the published price but the hotel happily gave us the same rate for our other stays. The rooms were clean with LCD TV and really comfortably pillows! (The rooms on the 3rd floow seemed a little more modern than those on the 2nd) There were no windows in the cheaper rooms. Breakfast is served in the rooftop restaurant and is included in the price. The hotel is situated in a busy shopping area with coffee shops, Pizza Hut and McDonalds nearby (just in case u get a case of Delhi Belly as we did!) There are also loads of other local choices. When booking travel use the agent across the road from the hotel, he really looked after us and was nearly half the price of the guy hanging around the hotel lobby! There's an internet cafe nearby so everything you need! Easy to catch a rickshaw a travel around. Would definitely recommend!

During my recent trip to India, I & my husband stayed at Hotel Clark International at the
at the beginning, middle and end of our trip at New Delhi. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel especially because of the very friendly, accomodating & warm behaviour of the Hotel Staff. I had choosen this Hotel based on all the online reviews, good, bad & ugly, and had decided to find out more on my own, and I can say I am very happy that I selected this Hotel. I was especially happy because of the in -room Safe, the mini bar & the Complimentry Tea/Coffee, Breakfast, & airport pick ups & drop of. The Room & the Bath were very good and modern The Hotel restaurant on the fifth floor - roof top is excellent. The food is particularly good.
I was specially surprized & touched to find out that on my Birthday, the cake which my husband ordered was delivered complimentry from the Hotel & the food that the restaurant catered was loved, appreciated & savored very much by my gathered friends & family.
I should also mention that -there is also a Travel service available at the Hotel Lobby, & also help with Money Changers.
I extend my thanks to Mr. Rajesh Patyal, & Mr. Chakraverty at the front desk, Mr. Thakur, & Mr. Ram Singh, Mr. Prem, and the rest of the staff for taking such good care of us.
I also like to mention Mr. Haroon of the Travel Agency & his associate Mr. Rafiq Khan
who have been very helpful in setting up our comfortable site seeing trip from Delhi to Puri and back. I and my Husband really enjoyed our stay in this Hotel.
I and my husband are going to be the guest again at Hotel Clark International for sure and I whole heartedly recommend to anybody & everybody who wants to stay at Budget Hotel with all the aminities of a Pricy Hotel surrounded by friendly Staff to come and stay here, they will not regret it. I particularly loved it ...It was my home away from home during this visit, looking forth to coming soon...Mrs. Bhattacharyya

My husband and I stayed at the Clark Hotel in New Delhi both at the beginning and end of our trip to India. Overall our stay on both occasions was excellent. The hotel is well priced, conveniently located near the Metro line (Karol Bag stop), provides airport pickup and drop off, rooms are modern, clean and spacious (large comfortable beds, in- room safe for valuables, nice bathrooms), front desk staff are helpful and friendly, food in the restaurant is convenient and tasty, a travel service is available in the lobby which can arrange a driver and tours of the city. The overall atmosphere is very friendly and staff are competent and readily provide assistance. New Delhi can be a daunting experience with so much traffic, noise and confusion and so having a place to stay such as this makes the visit so much better.

We found Pankaj, Rajesh and Ekta to be especially helpful and hospitable and would readily return on another visit. Staff do their best to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel for visitors to New Delhi.

The rooms on the fourth floor are very nice. We had a so-so room on the first night , and then we heard that the rooms on the fourth floor were better and so we moved up for the following night. It was great. Spotless, crispy white sheets, a clean modern bathroom. Breakfast is good, the view outside is great.

The hotel collaborates with a travel agent named Haroon, who is excellent. He made various bookings for us and we found him friendly and reliable.

I have been to Delhi 4 times in the past two years due to my hubby working out there. This time we were on holiday, I booked the Clark International via there web site which was so easy.

We arrived in Delhi late at night, the hotel car picked us up from the airport, when we arrived at the Clark I nearly called a taxi to take us to the Imperial Hotel where I had stayed previously. We appeared to have arrived in downtown Beirut but once inside the Clark International I was presently surprised. We were taken up to our room, which was lovely, the bed was very comfotable with crisp clean sheets, air con cooled the room very fast and a great hot shower.

The next day we got went up to the top floor for breakfast which had everything you could want to eat with a great view. We then went for a walk and headed down to Connaught Place to do some shopping, when we arrived back to the hotel later that afternoon we realised we were positioned slap bang in the middle of the market district of downtown Delhi, it was great, it had street markets, lovely people, great places to eat and shop and a great carnival atmosphere until late into the evening.

I couldn’t believe that my hubby had been to Delhi so many times and never found this area. I loved the hotel and loved the area, next time I go to Delhi I will stay at the Clark International.

TIP: Take a card from reception when you travel about as we found a lot of taxi drivers did not know where the hotel was as tucked down a side street, the card has a map on the back with address and phone number.

My brother and I were returning to India after many many years to discover the origins of our parents. Our mother (Tess) was Indian and our father a British soldier. I was born in Devlali and left as a baby.It was therefore important that we had good accommodation in Mumbai and Delhi. And certainly the Clark gave us this.The staff at the hotel were very helpful; the rooms were great and the breakfast second to none. Several times we also had lunch which was very nourishing. If we needed any help with minor things that can usually go wrong on holiday the staff acted quickly and efficiently. We found that they had a winning partnership with Abyss Tours which many other car operators must envy in Old Delhi. The pick up and drop off at the airport went smoothly and we negotiated very competitive rates from their able and competent manager ,Arif, for a sightseeing tour and a trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. Altogether a very satisfying stay. Congratulations to both teams at the Hotel and the Abyss.

A really recommendable, clean, friendly hotel with all mod cons (inc wi fi) in a busy - though not exactly central - part of town. By Indian standards it's very fairly priced too, so book well in advance to be sure of getting a room.

Yes, we had agreat time at the Clark after staying at a couple of similar hotels which were 'nasty'
Don't have any doubts about staying there the place is very clean and the food brilliant,staff could'nt be more helpful. You can arrange for a driver to take you around Delhi for a fixed price so no worries there. I recommend you pack ear plugs even at the top 5* hotels you can hear the road noise from your hotel room.
We had no problems with the water, hot water all the time. Electric went out from time to time but that happened every where in Delhi.
We stayed there for 2 weeks and if I can remember it went out twice to come back on in 5mins or less. The outside of the hotel was dirty and would not liked to have walked outside on my own but that is the case all over Delhi.

Having booked through Hostelbookers.com and read all the reviews, my boyfriend and I were worried about the hotels condition. I called the hotel 2 days before departure to book the airport transfer, the man was waiting ready for me. We arrived at the hotel at 6am way before check in time, but they allowed us a room at 1/3 of the normal rate. The room was amazing, all European amenities, a huge double bed and a 32" flat screen TV all you could ask for in a room. we booked deluxe. We were pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay there again. Please do not be put off by the surrounding area, as you are in India you need to keep an open mind. Also the food in the restaurant on the roof is amazing, we had a tandoori platter for rs350, enough for two people.
If you stay at this hotel you wont be disappointed.

I am a teacher who went with a colleague and 6 students on a Trip to India.
We spend our very first night in the Clark and this was the best introduction to India. Although the hotel seems to be in the middle of mayhem it is a quiet spot and very western in all its amenities. The rooms were large with high ceilings and the latest in equipment and bathroom convenience... we had everything down to the bathroom slippers. The Night Duty manager "Chakraworty") could not have been nicer and fullfilled every wish of us spoiled Westerners.
Of course we had wireless free internet which was another plus because I wanted to let the student's parents know that we arrived safely.
Breakfast was also super and served on the roof top. One amazing experience.

Being a woman, alone and an inexperienced traveler, you bet I was nervous when I arrived in Delhi at 3:00 a.m. My flight was 4 hours late and I had no idea what to expect. A huge wave of relief washed over me when I found my name being held up by a friendly face at the front of the overwhelming crowd. The hotel was definitely dedicated to taking care of their guests.

I was further comforted to be met with a strong display of professionalism at the reception, especially at 3:30 a.m. The other hotel staff were patient with my conflicting sleep schedule and did their best to help me obtain whatever I needed during those first hours.

The hotel’s choice of tour agency to help me plan the rest of my journey to Rajasthan, Kashmir and Daramshala was outstanding. The employees of Abyss Tours were friendly and personable. I completely forgot the fact that I was alone in a strange land very far away from home. All recommendations of hotels throughout the tour were superb.

I will always recommend all my family and friends who wish to travel to India in the future to stay at Clark’s and use Abyss Tours to ensure that they will find the whole Indian experience as delightful as I did.

Francoise Wang-Toutain. french nationality the location of the hotel is very convenient. Delhi metro station is a 5 minutes (may be 3) walk and the metro goes directly to Connaught place. The staff is very welcoming and help for finding places where you want to go. the restaurant on the fifth floor gives a view of this part of Delhi with
a large and very clean terrasse The food is very clean and delicious (I mean for a foreigner like me) the room are comfortable (though I had not the most comfortable one). The cleaning is done correctly everyday. the internet is free access. Also on the road to the metro station you have a nice market selling indian clothes and also daily life things. It is opened until 9 o'clock in the evening. It's a nice
place to spend some time. I stayed for ten days in this hotel for I was working In New Delhi. It was nice to come back every evening in a clean and friendly place. I would recommend the hotel for those who do not like the snobbish atmosphere of the great palaces of Delhi but still want good qualities rooms and services.

Clark International is a fine hotel.
Our rooms were clean. The room service was quick and food very good. All of the staff were very pleasant.
We took advantage of the pickup from airport as well as a trip to Agra and a tour of Delhi. The tours were good and the pickup is handy. The hotel took care of all our transportation and tour arrangements from the moment we landed to our departure. This is an extra cost, on top of the room, but well worth it. It made things very easy and enjoyable for us.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Delhi for a few days.
There is a bit of street noise at night, as the other reviewers have said, but it is tolerable.

We stayed at Clark for 4 days. Bookings were arranged directly with the hotel - we were picked up (even though our plane was delayed and we were over an hour late) and presented with roses (a bit OTT but still a nice surprise!). Staff very helpful and check in/out was very smooth.

Rooms were fine - probably worth going for one up from the standard so you are higher up and away from the street noise.

There is also a local market one road down that starts 5-ish until late (except Mondays) - very useful for picking up nick naks and getting quick deep fried snacks from.

The hotel is about 20 minutes tuk-tuk ride to Connaught Place and about 35 minutes in a taxi from the airport.

They organised a car and driver to take us on an Agra tour - much cheaper than the tour operators in the area.

I have a suspicion that the food is brought in from a kitchen out side the hotel - but room service was always prompt and good value for money. The rooftop restaurant lacks ambience but worth a visit so you can watch the eagles swoop for their dinner - you can also get very close up to them as they land on the roof.

The hotel doesn't have any alcohol listed on it's menus - but can still be ordered off the bill!

Der Service und der Zimmerservice waren rund um die Uhr und sehr schnell verfügbar. Bis zur Metro in Delhi kann man laufen und kommt durch eine wunderschöne Einkaufsstraße mit vielen Straßenladen.

Hotel Clark International - er et velfungerende hotel, beliggende i det pulserende område Karol Bagh. Godt valg- hvis man kan lide det autentiske Delhi - med smalle ufremkommelige gader, mange små butikker / boder og restauranter.
Booking via nettet fungerede perfekt, ingen uforudsete ekstra omkostninger og meget hjælpsomt personale. Billigt.

I have been in the hotel for about 6 weeks. februar,march and april 2010.

Positive: nice people. Bed is very good. Bed linen is changed every day. Refrigerator on the room. Prices off drinks in refrigerator are reasonable. Aircon is good. Breakfast is simple but okay. Internet is free.
Restaurant on top floor.
Many stores in direct environment. Also good restaurants. Metro is about 1 km walking distance.

Things to know. Power switches off sometimes a day. The hotel has its own generator. It will take over. This Is normal in Karol Bagh.
The internet is not always working optimal because the power switches off /on. In these situations it is difficult to keep electronics running.
American express card is not accepted. Visa and mastercard okay. Hotel has pick up from airport.
Value is about INR 350. Hotel arranges all kind of travel, if wanted.
The hotel s located in busy district. Shops open up around 11am. till around 10pm.

The location of the Hotel is quite good, right in the middle of the lively, touristic center of New Delhi, Karol Bagh. Nearby you find a McDonalds and many local restaurants and takeaways. Also a lots of shops with great souvenirs are just ourside the door. And even in the evenings it feels very safe to walk outside.

The Hotel itself also is quite nice! Some of the rooms could use refurbishment, however are still fine to stay in. The only issue was, that there was a huge amount of Mosquitos comeing in through the ventilation in the bathroom.

The staff was very friendly and helpful in arranging whatever we needed.

Breakfast in the tiny but cozy roof top restaurant was clearly indian but one could always find something to eat, however if one not too open to spicy food for breakfast this might become an issue.

Overall the Hotel met all our expectations, especially for the price we paid in comparison to other branded hotels in the capital it was great service!

Would come back and recommend.

Although a short ride from the center of the city (Connaught Place/Akshardham/Old Delhi area), this boutique hotel is beautiful, clean and has an amazing service staff. The rooms are all new looking, with great beds and fantastic showers. We got excellent services with colour -TV Together with remote control, rooms are equipped with quality linens, gourmet menus, and room-services 27-7. A fitness center. valet parking and concierge service round out the experience. I Would highly recommend this place.

Like most places in India Hotels are not cheap unless of course your an Indian. Fortunately this hotel cost me £2.34 for 4 nights stay with Breakfast (nothing special). I booked an alternative online at the above rate, the hotel failed to honour and I was given a choice, for the same cost (decimal was in the wrong place)
Room and bathroom -very clean, toileteries supplied every day, Towels (blime, whitest towels I saw).
The terraced restaurant was nice but found menu fairly bland, Breakfast -forget it, Mc do a better spread.
Area not the greatest - but this is India -felt fairly safe.
In general this was a decent place to stay in, in reality I am not fussed so long as hygiene is maintained but then if the Taj or the Hilton were available with a 90% discount who would say no!!!

Stayed two nights on the way back from trekking in Nepal. 30 to 45 minutes drive from the airport.
The area is packed with street markets but also very dusty because of the road&infrastructure works, apparently in view of the Commonwealth games.
Room was decent sized, well appointed with LCD TV. Aircon available but fairly old hence noisy at night (but believe me, you DON'T WANT to turn it off!). This does not make it a great sleep although beds are comfortable, if a little short (we were two tall guys). Bathroom fairly modern and clean at least in the main "contact parts". Nice toiletries etc.
We had a good breakfast included and even tried a late night dinner at the rooftop restaurant. This was good value and I have to say, like other places I have been in Delhi area, with extremely professional standards of service.
Priced very competitively.

Hotel Clark International was our first hotel in New Delhi (we stayed in 3 different hotels) and this was the best hotel. The staff was friendly (sometimes a bit weird!) and our room was pretty clean. Only you could hear the cars outside pretty good but we didn't have any problems with it when we slept. The location is nice as well, it's close to a very crowded market street (and a MCDonalds!).

I'm a british born indian, and usually travel to India every 2-3 years - normally I stay with family; but this time I had to get a hotel. I was dubious as to what one to book, but after having done my research I decided on Clark International - due to the proximity to the venue and the fact that it had a impressive website and reviews; also the fact that they offered a complimentary pick up service from the airport.

We were greeted punctually at the airport and bought to the hotel - the rooms designated were the deluxe double rooms. These were clean and tidy - a very important factor for my wife. The staff were friendly and obiliging in every aspect.

The beds were really relaxing; and the water was hot once the water heater was switched on by the reception staff. This was crucial, as the weather was very cold indeed - colder than usual for India.

There were some things that are available on request - I feel that the hotel should have a list of these items - but don't be afraid to ask.

A very pleasant and amicable hotel - would recommend it to all; and would certainly revisit it next time.

After a rubbish economy hotel experience on arrival in Delhi and a cold (but amazing!) few days in Srinagar we decided to treat ourselves to a little bit of luxury for a one night stop over in Delhi and took a gamble on a hotel a friend in London had recommended… We turned up pretty grubby and tired from a flight without a reservation but the staff on reception were lovely and found us a room immediately.

The room was probably the cleanest we came across and was very tastefully decorated with a wonderfully comfortable bed. We had a bit of tooing and froing about the hot water - turns out you just have to run it for about 10mins before it gets hot but it does and easily filled a lovely bath!

The hotel calls itself a "budget business hotel" which sounds horrendous and really does not do it justice. It is a great midrange place with character in the midst of Delhi's budget holes and soulless business hotels.

We booked again for a second one night stop over at the end of our trip and it was good to get back there. Only slight complaints would be that the breakfast was pretty poor and that I wish someone would tell the lovely doormen that they don’t have to salute every time you come in and out!!

Hotel Clark International is a comfy and cosy place to relax in after a day spent in the chaos of Delhi. I especially appreciated the heated rooms, very comfortable beds and nice bathroom (after some other experiences which were not so good...). I was ill with a cold during our stay so it was important to have a place where I could relax comfortably during the day. The not-so-good sides include the breakfast which is not that great (only some toasts, cereals, egg, some indian dishes) and the fact that some noise from the street can be heard in the room. I would recommend this place and would come again.

Rafiq Khan who operates through the hotel for Indian Tribal Tours arranged for us to have a driver for the say to enable us to see all the sights in the safe knowledge of having a car waiting for us.

Lovely friendly people and I owuld recommend both the hotel and people higlhly to all.

Our travel agent booked this hotel for 1 night but we arrived very late at night there and ended up to book 1 more night directly at the front desk who were very polite,gentle and helpfull always...
Next day mor ning after our breakfast we were planning to get around the city but had no idea what to do in an unfamilliar place at the same time Mr.Chokerborthy introduced us with a man in the lobby named Mr.Zargar who arranged some part of our trip around Rajasthan for 10 days & got to see alot more in such a short time.
The service is ok & most of the time we had our meals on the rooftop restaurant with quality dishes.Breakfast in the morning could be better with some other choices but no complaint at all we got what we asked for.I recommend this hotel for any travler bcoz they do care for others no matter how old you are.

We had previously experienced a great rooftop meal here- and decided that we would stay here on this trip to Delhi. We weren't disappointed! We got a very good deal/rate through Expedia to spend a week at this great hotel. The rooms were small but well presented and exceptionally clean- complete with comfortable bed, wifi and complimentary toiletries. The rooftop restaurant served excellent breakfasts (recommended the on-demand omelettes and coffee) and no fuss late evening meals/refreshments were delicious.

All staff were attentive and helpful- any small niggles were dealt with efficiently with a smile.

The hotel is situated right in the heart of the Karol Bagh district of New Delhi- a fantastic place to get a feel for real street life. With a large local market at the end of the street and the superb Suruchis (thali) restaurant only two streets way we were never stuck for places to discover by foot.

Highly recommended. We will be back.

I booked an executive room in this hotel for a one night stay, which included an airport pickup. First i was bit worried about the airport pickup but was glad to see a car to pick me up at the airport, however had to pay the driver extra to turn on the AC. The room was clean (though small in size) including the linen. The staff were friendly and all queries were looked ater. Will definately recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay.

And yes the bed is amazing!

The staff at the front desk were really helpful and gave great directions to the various places I wanted to go to. The room while not large was still well kept. I was also pleasantly surprised by the open rooftop breakfast area/restaurant. I got to Delhi by myself and the hotel provided a free pickup at the airport and I felt pretty comfortable in and around the area as a single female traveller and was only later joined by my friend.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in August 2009 and were pretty pleased overall. The hotel is lovely inside, the room was spacious, the A/C worked, the restaurant was pleasant and the staff were more than helpful. The bathroom was somewhat grubby but that is a recurrent problem throughout India.

The only thing that lets the hotel down is its location. Karol Bagh isn't a clean, Westernised area like the areas that house some of the 5 star hotels; it's dirty and congested and there's a good chance of stepping in something unpleasant as you leave the hotel.
The nearest Metro station is only 5 minutes walk away though and it's only a couple of stops to Connaught Place

We had food in the restaurant one evening and despite being the only ones there, the food was very good! The rooms were really comfortable and clean.We booked to stay there again at the very end of our trip and we got the most gorgeous room with a bath and fabulous shower.

We are sat in the foyer as I write this review. We are only staying for two nights and booked on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. It represents excellent value at around 20 pounds per night. The room isn't quite as spacious as the photos suggest and are well used. The room is clean and the aircon works (a must in Delhi in July). If you are used to 3 star European hotels you may be a little disappointed with the first impression, but things are different in India!
The staff are numerous and very helpful. The restaurant is very good. As the previous reviewer points out, the breakfast is a little strange but they make a good omelette. For dinner we had an excellent mixed tandoori for two, which with lashings of (very strong) beer came to around 6 pounds each. The best curry sauce I've ever had!
The district is lively, with miles of streets with small shops and street vendors. It's noisy all day as all drivers seem to beep constantly. Be prepared to have to haggle for just about everything! It's assumed (I think) that tourists are very wealthy and will pay anything!
In summary - this hotel provides an excellent base for exploring Delhi.

We were a bit concerned over the mixed reviews, especially of those who booked their rooms via Expedia and subsequent problems they encountered. The Expedia rate is almost 1/2 the price of the published rack rates, so it was hard to resist!

We booked (and prepaid) via Expedia a premium room. Our international flight was due to arrive at 12:30AM but was over an hour late. I had reconfirmed our flight arrival details with the hotel along with our room reservations about a week before we were due to arrived.

We were very pleased (and grateful!) that the hotel "boy" was smiling and waiting for us at the airport and whisked us away to the hotel. Check-in was a snap, with only a quick stop at the front desk so they could photocopy our passport info then off to the room.

We could not be have been more pleasantly surprised. The bed was awesomely comfortable, the room, (on the 3rd floor) was clean, neat and modern. Plenty of hot water. The tiny window provided no view, but hey, who comes to Delhi for the view?

Breakfast was included in the rate) and was satisfactory. We also ate dinner there the first night and it was very good. Watch out for the high alcholic content of the Kingfisher beer however! It is a real kick in the pants:)

It's not in the polished area in Delhi, but an interesting neighborhood with a colorful market. It's only a couple blocks from the metro. The autorickshaw drivers in the area were a bit annoying but that's Delhi.

You will need earplugs. I think earplugs were invented specifically for India. Between the barking dogs and honking of horns, it's a wonder anyone gets any sleep!

If you look for an good value hotel in Delhi, and don't want to spend over $100.00 a night, this is an excellent choice. The staff was polite and helpful, but not effusive. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would return here.

My sister and I staye dat this hotel for a business purpose. The staff were amazingly friendly and very personable. They assisted us in all aspects of our business helping us with leads, the hotel stay and anything we needed. We were two single women in Delih so they were very helpful and assisted us in travel.

In addition they have free WiFi and a conference room where we were abl eto use it all day for interviewing stayy. They never questioned the time in the conf room and were very helpful.

the rooms were clean, very modern, on the small side, but perfect. Being british travellers, we are always cautious in travelling to India and yet this was a good cost hotel with great cleanliness and quality.

The restaurant has a great breakfast incl, but closes early at night. Theed in a great spot right close to the Coroba market. We had also forgot one of our suitecases at the hotel and they immediately sent a driver with it to the airport - we did not have to worry about loss or theft! A hard find in India!

My wife and I spent three nights im the Clark International in February 2009. The hotel failed to pick us up at the airport when we arrived at 6.15 AM, but claimed that the hotel boy had been there and that we just hadent spotted him. Might well be, but our theory is that he was there to late as we were out of the airport allready 20 minutes after the plane arrived.

No problems though with a pre-paid taxi from the airport to the hotel, were we arrived arround 7:30. The reception fixed a room to us and we could sleep for a couple of hours before starting off for the city. The room was on the 3rd floor and held a lower standard than what we had expected. Later in the day - after complaining - we got another room (on the 2nd floor) which was more spacy and modern. Both rooms were clean and free of any kind of bugs.

The Clark International is located in the Karol Bagh area which is quite convinient as it is close to the new and rather impressing metro. The metro will be increasingly important in Delhi. Karol Bagh also hosts a street market which is quite charming. The market starts just a block or two away from the hotel entrance.

Karol Bagh is a busy area with a lot of small shops, some hotels and the streets are crammed with cars, rickshaws, cows and street vendors. Quite as it should be in a Delhi neighbourhood.

The hotel was definately the most expensive we stayed in during our 16-day India tour. Delhi has a lot of very expensive 5 star hotels, and its not easy to find good options in the 3 star segment. Clark International turned out to be a good one. The only negative thing we can come up with is that there is some noise from the streets and the surroundings. (This by the way occurs to all the hotels we stayed in in India). When we were there demolition works were going on in a building near by and that created a lot of noise starting quite early in the morning.

We spent 5 nights in total over 2 different periods at the hotel. We stayed in an Executive room though we were upgraded free of charge to a Premium room for one night.

We paid £86 per night for the Executive room. This includes airport pick up, breakfast and complimentary wi-fi. I think this is slightly expensive though hotels in Delhi do appear to be expensive.

The room was of reasonable size and very clean. It had a TV, a mini-bar (the contents of which were expensive) and tea and coffee making facilities.

The bathroom was clean. My only criticism of it would be that in the Premium Room the shower wasn't in a separate cubicle which meant the bathroom floor got very wet everytime we had a shower.

Breakfast was buffet style. It included cooked food of different types each day, cereal, toast, juice and tea and coffee. We also tried the restaurant one night and one afternoon. There was a good selection of food on the menu and it was very reasonably priced. Indeed the food itself was very nice. Mind you the waiter isn't very friendly unlike the other staff in the hotel!!

The Hotel is situated in the Karol Bagh area and indeed is less than a 10 minute walk to the Karol Bagh metro station which is convenient for getting around the city. When walking to the metro station you pass through a very colourful market which is present on certain days.

Unfortunately there was a lot of street noise at night whether it be vehicles or dogs barking. The noise was particularly noticeable in the executive room which was on the first floor (the premium room was on the 4th floor and was a bit quieter). However I would imagine street noise would be a problem in many hotels in the city.

The area around the hotel is slightly rough. One thing which I didn't like was the hassle we got from touts the minute we stepped out of the hotel. However this was a problem no matter where we went in the city as was begging.

The hotel appear to work with a nieghbouring travel / tour company. The staff from this company appear to sit in the reception area and wait for guests. On my first morning in the hotel the minute I got out of the lift I was approached by such a person who gave me the whole selling routine. This person was very persistent to the extent he was travelling up and down in the lift clearly looking for us. In saying that we did book a guide for Agra through the company as well as a pick up and drop off to the train station. The guide was very good indeed and we were glad we did go ahead with the booking.

Overall we were pleased with the hotel. It is lovely inside though slightly expensive.

I stayed at this hotel on the 19th Dec for 2 nights and we had booked 2 rooms. We got complimentary airport pick up which was great. Upon arrival at the hotel we were advised we had got an upgrade on both the rooms which was nice to hear.
The location is great for all the tourist sights. 1 thing i would say is dont book taxis from the hotel reception as it is a little bit more expensive than a normal taxi.

Considering this hotel is a 3 star budget hotel i would say it was very good. I stayed at a 4 star in Mumbai and it was awful!

Good value for money and if i was to go back to Delhi i would stay here again.

This hotel is really nice, situated in one the best areas in Delhi, which is Karol Bagh. You just come out of hotel, then right and when you hit the main market street, turn right again and at the end of that street you have metro station Karol Bagh which it will take you to the main attractions or close enough to spend a fair amount on a auto rickshaw from there.

Hotel staff is very helpful, and polite. We never used the pick up service from the airport because we always reached this hotel from the train stations. We raised this concern with hotel receptionist and he provided us with a courtesy drop off service to the airport instead. The food from the roof top restaurant is pretty decent and poison free. We never had meat as in the rest of India but saw lots of people eating meat and nobody complained or looked sick the days afterwards. This hotel is on the same area of others which look more economic like the Royal Holidays and the Hotel Classic but compare to these other doggy places this is far above in all aspects. You spend more but you receive quality in all senses, while on these other places, we stayed our first night in the Royal Holidays, we never could sleep as there works in progress in front of the Hotel and since we arrived they were trying to push us to make deals to visit using their touts what you can visit on your own. They just think that people are stupid and have not read enough before going to India.

Here is all the opposite, taxi prices if you request one are reasonable, help is as much as they can, advices, internet free compare to others that try to charge you with 100 rupees for a crap connection, there shops in the vicinity and there is the great market on the street heading to the metro station.

Definitely If I get back to Delhi one of these days I will stay here again and can recommend it to any one.

In Delhi you get what you pay for. When I'm here on business I pay around £200 per night compared to Hotel Clark's £35 per night. It isn't the most luxurious hotel in town, but it provides good facilities in a lively part of town. Well worth the money. Dinner and beer in the rooftop restaurant good and reasonably priced too. Breakfast is pretty boring though! Hotel will normally include a pickup from the airport. I saw some negative comments elsewhere about Abyss Travel. They are the hotel's "travel agent" for car hire etc.. If you don't want to use them, don't. You're not under any pressure to!

Look, its simple, unless you want to pay £200+ per night, then you will struggle to find a quality hotel in any big city in India. So reviews about this hotel saying mediocre, decieved or overpriced, ignore!! these guys did not do there homework before getting here. The Hotel is located in Karol Bagh and is right in the heart of things,clustered with back street markets and is extremely lively. Yes, the area is not the cleanest, but 75% of Delhi is like this. We based ourselves here for 5 nights, the rooms are clean and well maintained. The food in the roof top resurant is excellent and the staff really friendly.
If you want to see, feel and smell Delhi and thats probably why your are visisting this city! then stay here.

There was a bit of an internet snafu when I first arrived, but the manager stayed with the problem until he got it fixed and I could get online. I could walk to all sorts of shopping and the hotel has easy access to taxis, etc.

There were several tour groups staying in the hotel while I was there...so book early, the secret is out about this one.

After reading several reviews on-line, we booked the Clark International for 2 nights. We were very pleased with this hotel and believed we got very good value for our money. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable and were very happy to assist in arranging drivers, tours or train travel at competitive prices.

They have a cute roof top restaurant. Good Indian, Western and Chinese food, and a "business centre" where you can check your internet.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again and we highly recommend it to others.

Any inconveniences of this hotel were very minor:

1) Like many of the places that we booked on line, it said that our room included free airport pick up and we requested this through Expedia, but it did not happen. So, if you would like airport pick up, double check that a driver will actually be there to pick you up.

2) Hotel is located in a busy market area. I was happy to not have to walk alone outside of the hotel at night. The street noise could definitely be heard in the hotel rooms (as is the case throughout Delhi) so bring earplugs!

3) Totally my own fault, but I left my sandals in the hotel after I checked out and went back the next day to get them but was told that they had been "thrown out". So triple check your room when you leave!

Have just returned from a week based at the Clark International New Delhi. Our rooms were spotlessly cleaned each day, bed linen was changed daily, hot water was plentiful (though the wet room style bathroom was a little inconvenient), staff were extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. Restaurant facilities and breakfast was very good. Room service excellent. The only downside was that the location was a little rough, as a party of four women travellers, we did not feel particularly safe stepping out alone and we were glad that we had booked the services of a driver for our stay. Would highly recommend the Clark International hotel as being very good value for money.

We stayed at the Clark Hotel in July, 2007. My husband is Indian, but not from Delhi, and we really didn't know much about hotels in the city except that there seemed to be very few moderately priced hotels. After a great deal of research on the Internet, we selected the Clark Hotel. It was very clean, with good airconditioning (except during the daily power cuts). This was important as we were there at the height of summer. The staff was very helpful, but not all spoke good English. They tried their best, and we managed. This is not a five star hotel, obviously, but it was clean and comfortable. The morning breakfast buffet was good, with toast available for picky eaters (like my children). Indian food, as well as some "international" dishes like chinese food, etc, was also available for all meals, and was not hideously spicy. Even the Indian food was not too spicy. They are trying to cater to American/European palates, I think. However, I think that they are bringing in the food from another location as the "restaurant" appears to be a room with no kitchen attached. This can cause rather long wait times for food (think 30-45 minutes after ordering). This can be a problem after a long, hot day, especially with small children. There is a neaby McDonalds. The area is really, really busy with cars, people, beggars, etc., all the usual India issues and at night there is a market which might be fun to explore if you don't mind the mosquitos. We didn't do this as the kids were exhausted at night. The area might be a bit of a shock if you have never been to India before. Overall, it was a good place to stay for a few nights, especially if you don't want to spend spend hundreds of dollars a night for a 5 star property, but you want a clean hotel with western toilets (very important) and A/C. The pick up from the airport was included, but the drive back was not. One other note for female travelers, is try to get some Indian clothes, like a salwar kameez. Even during the hottest of days, it is very comfortable as they can be made of very light cotton. I saw several women wearing tank tops and shorts, and they are usually being followed by groups of strange men. Not pleasant. In India, if you wear shorts and sleeveless tops, you may as well be walking around in your underwear.

We were picked up as promised from the airport which I highly recommend, the room was excellent (we chose to stay in one of the suites).

The travel guide in the hotel sorted us out for our private car trips around Delhi, Taj Mahal and then onto Japiur.

Food here is excellent so we ate here on both evenings!

Great Hotel, the staff were fantastic and helpful always. I was here with my wife, 1st time to India and we started on a tour in Delhi first. After you get over the initial shock of the driving, poverty and the streets you will grow to love this little gem of a hotel. The hotel is literally a 30 second walk from Karol Bagh market which is great fun, especially as we were there for Divali so the streets were lit and fireworks everywhere. You will get beggars in this area but you will find that throughout India which is a shame as there are so many homeless children. Change is a serious problem so try and get as much as possible as you wil get harrased. Travel agent name Arif is fantastic and i swear he works 24 hour days as he is always there. He arranged tours, transports etc and we had no problems. The Hotel Dining area is brilliant, situated on the roof and very open but with covering, food is of a high standard and service excellent. Dont believe everyone who says that Delhi is expensive compared to say Agra or Jaipur, that is only on certain items. My final comment is once you get over the shock of the streets leading to the hotel you will enjoy your stay, when the driver said we are here i nearly fell out of the car, but after my trip to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur & Mumbai i enjoyed the experience of Delhi the most.

Breakfast on the rooftop is very pleasant -- ask for Chai (that's delicious Indian spiced tea), not the teabag option! The hotel is located in Asia's biggest shopping area, Karol Bagh. The ultra-modern Delhi Metro station is 5 minutes from the hotel. From there, you can get to Delhi's commercial and business center, Connaught Place, in just a few minutes more.

We opted for the most expensive room on the property, which was around US$125 per night. We were favorably impressed, the room was clean and very comfortable and the bed very nice. The hotel is located in a noisy and busy area, and to be honest when we arrived at the hotel we were not terribly impressed with the exterior of the building. However, the staff were very friendly and the other hotel guests we chatted with in the lobby loved the place, so we gave it a shot.

The food is rather good and the rooftop restaurant is charming. Overall good value for the money but probably won't stay there again simply because the neighborhood is incredibly busy and very congested. If that doesn't bother you, try it out. Otherwise a good hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for two days and here's why I liked it.

1. The staff is very courteous and helpful.
2. The rooms are clean and when you request extra towels or sheets, they are provided promptly.
3. The food is very good and their breakfast buffet is impressive.
4. the hotel is centrally located and one can easily access major tourist attractions.

After having considerable difficulty locating a midrange ($50-$100) hotel in Delhi for a personal visit, we settled on the Clark Intl. based on reviews on TripAdvisor.

We had a delightful stay and were very pleased with the hotel staff.

1) They showed up at the airport as promised for the complimentary pickup. They come in an Indica (small car) so if you are a large family with luggage cal them and let them know in advance.
2) Our room was basic but both the room and the hotel inside was very clean. Folks who have written negative reviews are likely having inflated expectations of what $50-60 per night can get you in Delhi. The area around the hotel is not great (in the middle of Karol Bagh) - that did not bother me so I liked the hotel esp. the courteous staff.
3) The complimentary breakfast and the attendants serving it are very professional.
4) We had made our own taxi arrangements for Delhi and Agra sightseeing and there was no pressure put on us by hotel staff to use their services. They did organize airport dropoff for us when requested.

Overall very happy with the hotel - would definitely stay there again if going thru' Delhi on personal visit.

For our arrival in Delhi my partner and I were looking for a clean but basic hotel at which to spend our first night. After reading reviews for other hotel in the sprawling city we decided upon the Clark International.

As promised the hotel duly provided the complimentary pick up from IGA as promised. Although we were informed by email before we arrived that as we were to arrive at 0800 we would not be able to check-in until 1200, this was not the case. The hotel was able to accommodate us immediately, which after a long journey was greatly appreciated.

The room was basic but spotlessly clean with a working air cooler (rather that air conditioning) which was noisy but apply drowned out the street noise below.

As anticipated we were offered trips, booked through the hotels' travel agency, but when we declined their offer there was no 'hard sell', unlike a lot of India.

The hotel is not centrally located but is a short five minute walk from the efficient New Delhi Metro.

I picked the Clark based on reviews on Trip Advisor. Got a good deal through hotels.com and then hoped that I had made the right choice. It was. My pal and I had a terrific room in a not-so-full hotel, for an off-season price that made my friends' jaws drop (people always tell me Delhi doesn't have mid-range hotels -- apparently, we found the only one). Our two-bed room was very clean, we had air conditioning, a fridge, ceiling fan, cable TV, nice bathroom, and a very nice staff happy to help. It was as quiet as can be expected (for *Delhi*). The staff recommended a travel company nearby to rent a car & driver for a day, and the driver took us to a fantastic shop for clothes, then to a beauty parlor near the hotel to get a very reasonably-priced manicure and pedicure. The second day, when we told the staff where we wanted to go, they recommended we take the metro, which isn't too far away by walking, and is a terrific way to get around. There is some shopping not too far away from the hotel -- shoe stores are good, but the clothing stores weren't so great. There aren't really restaurants around, so you will have to rent a car/driver for that (room service is decent at the hotel). I found the hotel a great respite at the end of each day. Will definitely stay again.

In general, Delhi is a shaddy place, full of touts and scammers. The Clark is relatively safe, clean, and a good deal for a budget hotel. Our room did not have any windows, but the sheets were incredibly soft and clean; the beds were comfortable, and the airconditioning a blessing. The hotel is also near a local night market and only five minutes from the Karol Bagh metro. Do not trust the hotel tour guide! He brought us to his office and pretended to call the train station for tickets. He lied about the seat availabilty, luring us to his expensive car rides. Rather, check with ABC (?) travels, which is on the corner of the hotel block. In all, the hotel was a decent stay, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

As several other visitors have noted, there are very few mid-range priced hotels in India. I am an American and have lived in Bangalore almost two years and find it's low end or Taj properties, all over $150/night with not much choice in between. The Hotel Clark International itself was nice, but was on a narrow side street in an older part of town. I appreciated the pick up service from the airport, even though the plane was over an hour late. The driver tried to hustle me to a travel agency almost immediately, but we needed time to rest because my traveling companion was not feeling well from the flight. After an hour, he took me one minute's walk to Indian Tribal Tours (see my review in Delhi info).
The dining room is on the top-5th- floor, but the very old elevator only goes to the fourth floor, so it's not handicap-friendly. Check in and out was efficient. The buffet breakfast was fine; omelettes could be cooked to order. There is both inside and outside seating. I asked for a quiet room and we were given a small room with no windows. Actually, the A/C unit was in the window. The hotel was a bit pricey for India and what we got, but I'm not going to complain about it.

Das Clark International habe ich bereits im Vorfeld aus Deutschland gebucht. Preise sind sehr unterschiedlich. Die Zimmer sind sehr schön ausgestattet und das Personal ist sehr freundlich. An der Rezeption ist man bemüht jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen. Ich habe hier mit einem Kollegen einen Fahrer für einen Tag in Delhi buchen können zu einem Preis, den man nur mit dem Bus oder U-bahn unterbieten kann.
Auf der Tauchterrasse kann man sein Frühstück genießen. In diesem Stadtviertel ist es sicher nie ruhig. Die ständige Unruhe ist für mich aber ein Teil von Delhi.

初日と最終日の2回泊まったが、初日はお湯も出ず、ヒーターもないなど、ひどい部屋だった。
これでは割高だなと感じていたが、最終日にまた利用したら今度は日本のビジネスホテル並みに快適な部屋でとても満足した。
初回のときは予備の部屋か何かだったのかもしれないが、部屋によって落差が激しいので問題があれば、必ず部屋を替えてもらうべき。
あと、初日は空港へのタクシーを頼んだら450ルピーだったのに、最終日は650ルピーと言われ、料金がまちまち。
ホテルの隣の旅行会社では350ルピーで手配できるので、こっちのほうがいい。
ただ、ホテルのタクシーは専属ドライバーが待機してるので、待ち時間がないのはメリット。

Hotel clark was de "thuisbasis" tijdens mijn verblijf in India. Wij hebben in India meerdere plaatsen bezocht maar ons rots in de branding was Hotel Clark. Het is een schoon hotel en de personen zijn klantvriendelijk. Beneden naast de lobby is een kamer waar iedereen gebruik mag maken van internet. Ik zou zeker aanraden om een taxi via het hotel te regelen. Wij waren keer keer zo eigenwijs om dat niet te doen. Gevolg taxi die niet komt opdagen!! Gelukkig heeft het hotel binnen enkele minuten vervangend vervoer kunnen regelen. Het ontbijt is niet heel uitgebereid (zeker keuze uit minimaal 6 mogelijkheden) maar al het noodzakelijke is aanwezig. (weet eet er nou 15 verschillende gerechten in de ochtend) kortom: prijs kaliteit verhouding ruime voldoende!!!

Pur considerando la zona di Delhi piuttosto degradata, l' Hotel Clark International e' decisamente confortevole. Il comportamento del personale e' corretto. Il ristorante e' un po' piu' caro di altri in citta', ma si ha il vantaggio di non dover uscire e si mangia piuttosto bene. Attualmente abbiamo lasciato parte dei nostri bagagli in deposito qui, che riprenderemo al nostro ritorno a Delhi prima di ritornare in Italia.

Absolut super war die Organisation von Ausflügen, das hat vorab per Internet toll geklappt. Das Hotel hat eine kleine Dachterasse mit Restaurant, wovon man einen tollen Blick hat. Das Essen ist gut und günstig. Man sollte sich von der Umgebung und dem aüßeren Bild nicht täuschen lassen, innen ist es sehr angenehm und freundlich. Kein Superluxushotel, aber wie gesagt, für den Preis eine gute und absolut taugliche Alternative.

Mi mujer y yo teníamos ciertas dudas generadas por la lectura de alguna que otra crítica muy negativa, sin embargo tengo que decir que el Clark nos sorprendió gratamente en todos los sentidos. El hotel estaba muy limpio al igual que la habitación que ocupamos. Es cierto que había algunas obras de rehabilitación en la zona de recepción pero que no molestaban en absoluto, además estaban dejando el hotel muy coqueto .

El personal es muy atento, servicial, discreto y eficiente.Tuvimos un problemilla con el agua caliente y nos lo resolvieron de inmediato. No tuve la percepción de que esperaran constantemente las propinas como en el Metropolitan New Delhi, por ejemplo.

El desayuno buffet era pequeño en variedad que no en cantidad y extraordinario en gustos y sabores. Igual digo esto porque a mi mujer y a mi nos encanta la cocina india incluyendo el picante a primera hora de la mañana (platos picantes solo había un par de todas formas).

Lo único que no me gustó del hotel es que permiten la entrada en el lobby de algunos indeseables de la calle de los que te quieren cazar a toda costa para planearte un tour a "su" medida, sintiéndote verdaderamente acosado . También es cierto que cuando te pones ya serio y les cortas sin más te dejan en paz. La misma persona nos la encontramos todos los días cuando bajábamos a la recepción del hotel. O bien estaba hablando con los empleados como uno más o bien estaba en el sofá, siempre al acecho de alguna víctima. Otro de los indeseables intentó confundirnos cuando preguntamos en la recepción del hotel por la estación de metro para ir al centro y nos dijo que para ir al centro solo podíamos ir en tuk-tuk o en taxi (él nos lo iba a conseguir por supuesto) y que no había metro, cuando la estación de metro de Karol Bag está a unos 150 metros de allí según averiguamos por nuestra cuenta más tarde. En fin, esta gente no trabaja en el hotel pero pulula por allí y al parecer le permiten estar.

The Clark International is basically in the middle of an Indian market. Because of the craziness of the street it is on, our first impression was not so good. However, the service was excellent! They were helpful with getting around and finding places to eat and things to do. The breakfast is included. It is not great, but not bad either. The room we stayed in was a good size. There is free wireless internet.

There are a couple big negatives to this hotel. Because of the street, and the fact the windows do not seal out the sound well at all, it is pretty loud. You hear the incessant honking, dogs barking, and people yelling until about 11:00 pm. It does quite down after that, though. The other major drawback is the cleanliness of the extra bed. Since there were 3 of us, we had an extra bed brought in. It looked as if they found the mattress discarded in the gutter. So please take my advice, Don't Get an Extra Bed! Otherwise, this is a good place to stay in Delhi.

I am currently staying at the Clark, a 3* hotel in Karol Bagh, having not been able to get into the Siddarth, a 4-5* hotel a mile or so down the road. I wanted to stay in Karol Bagh as my business meetings are here and it was a pain on the last visit having to sit in taxis for so long to get here and back.

I found the front office staff very friendly and efficient and the room is clean and of a reasonable size. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is ok but it's set up like a wet room (though not posh) and the hot water stops in the middle of the day unless you request it. There's tea making facilities (with powdered milk) and a flat screen TV which I haven't tried yet. There's not many power points so you have to plug in the kettle where a light normally goes. There's also free wi-fi which is a nice change from paying £20 a day at some more expensive hotels here.

There's only soft drinks in the mini-bar but you can order beer (about £1.80 cash, not on the room, for a big can of KingFisher) but they don't have a license to sell wine.

It's definitely noisy with the cars outside beeping their horns during the day and evening.

I'll probably stay somewhere nicer (and more expensive) next time as my company is paying. Having a bit of jetlag after a trip from London means I want a quiet room and a couple of glasses of wine to put me to sleep!

If I was paying myself, wanted to be in Karol Bagh and didn't need a glass or two of wine at the end of the day, I think the Clark would be just fine.

I normally stay at 4-5* hotels so can;t compare the Clark to others in the price range but it seems pretty good to me.

This place is a decent place to stay, they have complimentary breakfast which is a plus otherwise you'll have to go looking for local places to eat which are sometimes not as clean. The room was decent size, the only problem was that we had booked for 4 people to one room and they only provided beds for 2 people. We had to ask them several times for a rollaway which we got around 10pm. This was a great nuisance and to top it off they made such a big deal about it as we were checking out. They didn't provide an extra bed and wanted to charge us extra money for 4 people eventhough the reservation clearly stated that.

The room situation was annoying to deal with, otherwise its a decent place to stay.

Rooms - sufficient space for a family of 2 in the double room. The room layout was odd
The bathrooms were okay but not the cleanest. Photos posted by a previous traveler showing mildew stained shower curtains can be found.
The bed linen was looked worn out and old.
The safe deposit locker in the room did not work and I had to call the bell boy to open and close it for my storage - not very helpful.
Hospitality - staff is friendly and usually willing to help. Front desk staff is helpful. When I asked for restaurants close by, they recommended their own rooftop dinning and didnt want to reveal any other restaurants close by. There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance if you want to try to local cuisine
Food - Breakfast was included in our package. the rooftop restaurant is good and the breakfast menu was decent. Their Indian fare in the buffet breakfast (parathas) was better than the traditional continental fare.
Location - This is the best feature for an otherwise average hotel. Its in the middle of a busy market. IF you like shopping, this is your place. You will have to bargain a lot to get a fair deal. There is also a McDonalds a couple of blocks away, if you are worried about trying out the local food. Parking is a big problem in this hotel.

For the price, the hotel might not meet expectations for those who have traveled in US. But, in India, finding a good hotel at economy rates is very difficult, especially in an overpriced location like Delhi. Given the options available around Delhi, its an okay hotel.

I recently stayed at the Clark International while passing through Delhi on the way to my friend's wedding. Even though the area doesn't look nice (by day or by night) the inside of hotel is clean and the staff are professional and friendly.

My friends and I stayed in one of the suites on the top floor and it was actually what I expected - small. Really about the size of a regular hotel room in the States. I felt like the price was between the more expensive hotels and the budget hotels, and this seemed fair. The service was good and we didn't have any problems that weren't immediately corrected during our stay (my friend's hair dryer blew a fuse, it was fixed promptly).

They have a nice screened in deck you can eat on that's connected to the restaurant on the 4th floor, and the complimentary breakfast was tasty - love that fruity jam they serve all over India!

Even though the area was a bit overwhelming for those new to travels in India, you are right in the thick of things if you are looking to do a little shopping. The drive wasn't too far to the airport OR the train station if this isn't your final destination. I would recommend this place to friends.

Rooms are on the dark side but they are clean and comfortable with satelite TV, Air Con and a Fan. Also we had a fridge which is always nice in such hot tempretures. Hot water only worked in the morning. I like the neighborhood of Karol Bagh. Its in a local Indian Market for Sarees mostly so its interesting to walk around and you dont get hassled too much (comparatively). I always felt safe here. The metro is a 10 minute walk if you want to get around independantly. Also there is always a AutoRickshaw Driver to hand to haggle with. You are close enough to all the attractions by these transports. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the hotel with wife and 3 year old and got a king size bed as asked for. Room was a decent size and quality was ok without being extraordinary. Had breakfast at the hotel and the choice was a bit of a let down, had spicy noodles and pasta amongst eggs and toast! But for the price we paid you couldnt complain.
The area around the hotel is very noisy and if your a light sleeper like me then that will be a problem, my wife though was fine. The upside of this is that there is a good market at night in the area for some shopping.
For food we ate at Pizza Hut round the corner but beware of taxi drivers in the area as when we asked for directions he said its 5 miles away and a 100 ruppee ride. We happily declined.
In short you could pay a lot more in Delhi for not much more.

We booked our stay at Hotel Clark International before we left home which turned out to be smart because we met other guests who said that they booked by going to the hotel once in Delhi and they were charged double what we paid. Overall, my b-f and I had a good stay here. We got free pick-up from the airport and the hotel was in a good location, but the drawbacks were that there was construction happening on the rooftop which woke us up in the a.m., they tried to charge us for items n the fridge we didn't drink, and phone calls were pricey. One of the major pitfalls against this place was that the staff wasn't all that helpful. When we asked if they had a map of the area we could have, we were told to follow a man in the lobby who would get us one. We were then taken to a travel agency who tried to talk us into booking tours to Agra and sight seeing around Delhi. They also charged way more for a lift to the airport than a taxi actually cost. Our room was spacious and clean (although the washroom was a little dingy and the TV was broken). The bed was comfortable and the AC worked. The breakfast that was included was ok.

I booked the Hotel for a stopover before my international flight. I was coming from Goa and got the Hotel details here in this site. After deciding to go for it , I got a reservation through hotels.co.in for a Premium Room+Airport Pickup+Internet for US$36. That was pretty good I think . I although my flight from Goa was delay the boy from the Hotel was there waiting me and took me safely to the city. The place is busy, but the hotel seemed nice at first. After I checked in, the boy took me to my room and as soon as he opened the door I noticed it was a standard room. Immediatly upon calling the reception and explaining that my booking was for a premium room the moved me. The room was nice and clean, but the bathroom although clean was a bit run down. The food at the restaurant was ok and the breakfast, although simple, was ok too. They charged me INR$600 to take me to the airport the next day.
Anyway, it was all right ... and the price was ok, so I think I can recommend the Hotel.

I had a few occasions to stay at the hotel once in sept 2008 and once more in nov 2008. There are a few things that i liked about the hotel and few that probably, in my opinion was a little bit of a let down. The things i really liked : room ambience, room cleanliness, hospitable staff, top floor open air restaurant, proximity to market place and metro station, food(taste).

the let downs: room service - sometimes took ages, food was little spicy,lack of variety in food choices, AC- almost non functional, room size, tv(still CRT) in some rooms. I noticed the lack of variety in food since i was staying for a longer period of time being on a business trip..for ppl staying overnight or just for a day or two, it might not be bad at all.

I could see lot of foreign tourists stayin there...

If someone is looking for a decent acco in karolbagh area , would recommend to try this one.

For CAD215 (USD 180) a night, greatly overpriced, like all hotels in India.
The good: conveniently located in the quiet street of Karol Bagh, 5 minutes walk from metro. Nice rooftop restaurant.
The bad: heater in the room didn't work properly. Electricity outlets were so outdated that small plugs (cell or photo charger) required support to stay plugged. Hot water was in fact just warm, so shower in the morning was challenging.

Stayed on two occasions in Jan. One night at first then 3 nights after a 6 day train journey.We were met by friendly courteous staff, they helped us to locate an ATM on the first stay as it was a little daunting in this very bustling city. The rooms were clean,the bathrooms had bath, shower, all very clean, mini-bar & air con,TV and free internet connection. There was some traffic noise but unavoidable in such a busy city and no fault of the hotel. The breakfast was very satisfying,cereals,hot foods, eggs etc. Lunch and snack & dinner menus varied & were very nice and the waiters very nice,helpful. We would recommend this hotel, it was quite a "little gem" considering the price of some hotels in New Delhi, we would stay there again should we return someday. As we didn't take advantage of their free hotel pick-up on our arrival in New Delhi, they kindly gave us a free drop off to the airport for our departure.

We were in Delhi for the VIV India Exhibition at the Pragati Maidan, cost was a consideration when I chose the Clark International but we felt we had excellent value for money. The location is rather challenging, the noise and general grubbyness can be off putting but once you are inside the hotel everything changes. We reserved a suite, (this was still a good price compared to the 4 and 5 star hotel prices) and it was great. A large canopied bed with beautiful clean linen and a bathroom with a marble floor.
The rooftop restaurant is very good, the food is excellent and although the hotel does not have a bar you can get a beer with your meal.
Breakfast is decidedly Indian with not very much concession to European taste but we always found something suitable.
The staff are very helpful, especially the travel agent, after the show we had set aside time to visit Rajasthan and it was organised for us very efficiently by Abysss tours.
Overall I can recommend this hotel as being good value for money.

stayed in this hotel 3 nights Oct 07. transfer from airport good as we were 90 mins late the driver waited for us..
our room was dissapointing ,room 407. no view blacked out widow ( a concrete wall behind) I guess it was quiet apart form hearing the lift go up and down all night.
No hot water at all during our stay.

Roof top restaurant average lacked a few green plants lots of bird poo on the edges of the terrace, but delhi is delhi. food nothing special. wouldnt serve us beer but others seemed to have it.( whether they took it to the table themselves)
We booked with late rooms and when we came to pay extra tax (luxury tax ) was added on the bill this was a laugh as this hotel was clean but def not luxury. not at all like the website pictures we looked at before booking, staff ok but not as friendly as other hotels we stayed in.

The hotel is centrally located in the Karol bagh area and close to Metro station . The facilities are clean and maintained reasonaby well .The complementary breakfast is good . The negatives - the surrounding areas are not too good , but you cannot have a central location like Karol bagh and peace together. They provided complimentary pick up from airport (because it was free the driver did not run AC and we did not particularly insist although it was hot) . The reception staff was also helpful in arranging early morning taxi drop off to Nizammudin Rly station.

Overall a good value for money proposition and above average clean facilities in a central location.

I stayed at that place twice, with quick and friendly check in. Rooms on both occations were small but rather clean with surprisingly good bed linen. Bathrooms came with working but primitive showers and toilets. Good towels provided and they even had toiletries. Neighborhood is an extremly busy and loud bazaar area with traffic that drives you crazy. Since no taxi driver knows this hotel, suggest you print our the location map from the hotels web side. Personally, I prefered to eat at McDonalds just around the corner, or a Pizza Hut 300 meters away, not really finding the hotel restaurant appealing enough. For cheap internet access and even printers, there is a place right next to the hotel.

Clark International Delhi

Trying to maintain a decent standard of budget hotel in a chaotic city. This is clean, safe (at least for us), with services, fittings and staff that work, if all look rather tired, and decent if not exciting food. Use a locker for your valuables. There is no free mineral water, but its only about 15r from the minibar, and there are supermarkets through narrow doors and sometimes in the basements in the major shopping street, one short block from the hotel (where sundries will cost next to nothing).

If you arrive on the early UK flight your room isn't likely to be ready until the guests check out and it's serviced, so you'll need to hang around in the restaurant, with an accumulating number of guests until it is. Pay for breakfast ~300r whilst you wait, other breakfasts and transfers are normally included, all explained on their website which seems accurate in text, though the pictures are overly flattering, and taken with an estate agents eye! We could not discern any advantage of our 'presidential-suite', apart from being marginally higher up from the traffic, so I'd suggest booking based on ensuite/no-ensuite and being done with it.

Be prepared for standard scary Indian driving practises on the pickup, but the management will come to both the airport and the train station with a board whilst the driver waits (including meeting you from your carriage in the later case) which is very helpful if you take the all air-con out-early-late-back express (thoroughly recommended) to Agra for the day. There will probably be a couple of mini power outages or fluctuations during a day as well, which will trip the TV and air-conditioning, but normally last <30s.

The hotel is located in the odd shopping district of Delhi with small streets and shops, be prepared for noise, dust, disorganised telephone lines, stray dogs and dilapidated store fronts. It can be a bit of a shock if this is your first stop in India, the rest of the city is much the same, but there is a huge jump up in cost to the better hotels which have gardens and gates to sheild you from this.

There are two metro station within a short walk, Karol Bagh is the one to head for, the other requires negotiating a difficult junction. The hotel has a useful if slightly haphazardly scaled and street named map. Its well worth collecting this along with a business card in order to get back to the hotel via an Auto through the myriad streets. We couldn't find a prepaid auto stop nearby the hotel, but there are plenty in the city centre to help you get back.

The restaurant is on a roof terrace which gives a good view of the urban roof top landscape, for better and for worse - geckos on the whitewash, palm squirrels scampering on parapets, kites circling in the smog, continual honking of horns, inexplicable sirens, horns or drums (depending on the date) and endless dust. It's done out in Bamboo, with nightlights and waiter service and tries it's best. The Indian style food is better than the western, the breakfast is an odd mix of the two.

Although I'd concur with other reviewers comments regarding this being a clean, well maintained and well-staffed hotel, I can't really go any further without mentioning the street noise, which a light sleeper would really struggle with. Hard to blame the hotel for this but worth pointing out.

The pick-up service was good and appreciated given our delayed arrival at Delhi Airport but I found the hard-sell tactics from our pick-up regarding procuring guides and further travel tickets a little tiresome when you've just arrived off a long flight. The hotel staff were however, efficient at arranging taxis and giving advice on other transport/tourist issues.

Also worth pointing out for the uninitiated, that Karol Bagh (the area in which the hotel is located) is a long way from the tourist sights of Old and New Delhi, although the hotel is just a five minute walk from Delhi's crowded but otherwise excellent new Metro system (Karol Bagh stop). So the airport pick-up makes even more sense in that you can get a grip on the geography of the place before you venture out.

All in all, just about worth the money but be careful if you are a light sleeper!

The Hotel Clark does not bill itself a luxury hotel. Delhi is city of exorbitant 5-star hotels. For $55/night, I received the promised timely pickup at the airport, a small, simple, and spartant room with cold A/C and hot water. The included breakfast was hot, filling, and healthy. Hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. Obsequiousness and servility should not be a requirement. The hotel's related travel service need not be used, but I found it friendly, knowledgeable, and reasonable. I can only assume that the terrible ratings this hotel has garnered come from individuals expecting 5-star service for 3-star prices. If you want clean and comfortable, but aren't w illing to pay excessive bills, this may be the place for you.

Wer vom Hotel den Flughafenservice bei An- und Abreise nutzen möchte, sollte die letzte Nacht als neue Buchung vornehmen, dann steht ein weiter Airportservice zur Verfügung. Frühstück OK, aber nicht so reichhaltig wie erwahrtet.

J'y suis resté 4 jours. Malgré l'ambiance un peu bruyant du quartier, le hôtel est propre et confortable. Cependant, il faut vérifier qu'on vous donne la chambre que vous avez réservé. Car j'avais réservé une chambre prestige, mais ils ont voulu me donner une chambre deluxe, soit la catégorie en dessous. Il a fallu sortir la bon de réservation pour prouver que j'avais bien réservé une chambre prestige. Le petit déjeuner reste médiocre. Des nouilles chinoises et des macaroni le matin, ...Il faut aimer. Une fois la chambre obtenu dans la gamme réservé, et en trouvant des restaurant pour des petits déjeuner, le séjour sera agréable.

I stayed at this hotel on march 28th,2010.I was received at airport and taken to hotel in a rickety car without functioning air conditioning.Same car was brought again when I asked for taxi.This time air conditioning is working.So free airport pick up is without air conditioning?? Again when I was checking out they charged Rs80 for water I did not take from minibar.Night manager refused to get me a taxi from another reliable company,stating that they will call only their company taxi, from pleasure travel located in connaught place,it has no telephone number on receipt.
Advise to future guests is call your own taxi and ask the managment to remove items from minibar as soon as you check in,unless you are willing to pay, what ever was demanded at check out.
Enjoy a can of beer kingfisher at Rs125 at this hotel and may be able to sleep in noisy place.

Our room was very small with a heater and A/C unit that looked like they were made 50 years ago. The TV was also dated.

The staff were not friendly but capable enough. They organised a free pick up from the airport, but this was a dusty 15 year old tiny car. Luggage would not fit in the boot and had to go on the front seat. They organised a lift to the domestic airport for the 450 Rupees in a slightly better small car (but not much).

The plus points are a nice restaurant up on the roof, with a very nice breakfast.

Hotel is a bit dated, and shows it in places. The hotel room we had was ok'ish. Mostly clean. The one big negative point was the aircon unit just above our heads over the bed and I mean literally just above, see picture. It was excessively noisy during the night and at one point spewed out a whole lot of built-up black grime from the street.

The rooftop terrace would be nice if it weren't for the heavy smog of Delhi. Otherwise the food and drinks are decent and reasonably priced.

Stayed there for a night, just before flying back out of India, so didn't get a chance to explore the area. It did look quite lively with street stalls at night.

I would like to explain firstly that indian hotels are not of the quality you find elsewhere. That is a common theme i found throughout my stay in india and all travelers must bear this in mind before they travel there.
However I was very shocked as to the state of the room especially baring in mind the positive reviews on trip advisor.
The room was of a relatively nice size. However the room I stayed in would have gotten a 1 star anywhere else. There were very big cracks in the walls, the room was dirty. The airconditioning unit was very grimy, the bathroom was very shabby, the bath was cracked. All in all i am sure I could have found a hotel for the price I payed in am much nicer room.
But i loved being in delhi such an incredible stay and it barely dampened our stay.

Well, it would be unfair on my part to discard this property altogether but at the same time I am unable to find justifications for having it at No 14 on TripAdvisor’s popularity index.

Let’s start from 0:0 to the last whistle i.e., the moment we checked out.
Check-in was anything but smooth. Despite having an explicit pre-paid reservation for two adults and two kids (6, 4) front-desk was insistent to have 600 INR/night for extra bed.
Breakfast was not at all impressive … yeah even taking room rates in account.
Bathroom standard should have been better.
TV was not working, there is only 2-3 channels tuned in … we never tried to tune in more nor did we complaint, to be fair.
Room service was prompt and efficient.
Wi-fi was complementary and of acceptable speed.

To conclude, I would say that you don’t really get value for money at this hotel. I am not satisfied, let alone impressed.

Thanks to Photoshop, they've managed to delete all the electrical wires hovering over their shaded windows, their neighboring buildings and whatever else that looks nasty in their surrounding. So when you look it up online, you would think that the hotel is in a nice, quiet area. We were on the 2nd floor and we could hear the vehicles passing by, horns beeping, people's voices, et al. Not very comfortable when all you need is a good night's sleep. We had a portable heater in our room and it wasn't working, so we phoned the reception to replace it. They did...with another non-working unit. Great.

The room and bathroom is OK and the bed was clean. But we didn't really get value for our money. We think the hotel is overpriced especially with the location.

I did not have a great stay here. Initially when I booked, they told me a taxi from the airport was part of the package. When I arrived, they charged me 500rp for this. Then when I left, they tried to charge me another 100rp because the car was airconditioned.

Also when I arrived, my room smelt like a sewer, so much so that someone had to come in and spray air freshener. The next day I changed rooms, and this was OK, so try NOT to stay on the bottom floor. The restaurant is OK with nice views. The hotel travel agent is dodgy and tried to make me go to Kashmir. However the internet was free. The service was very mixed. Some people were helpful, others were downright rude, especially the man who asked me to pay extra for the taxi. I would recommend this place ONLY to budget travellers.

We hit the Clark International Hotel after 3 weeks in Bangalore and a couple of days in Udaipur. It was the worst hotel in our trip.
My wife and I are from Australia, I was in India for work and my wife joined me after 3 weeks for a bit of an explore. We booked through Otel.com, and paid online for an Executive room, one up from the normal room type. However, when we checked in we got given the most basic crummy room, which had been painted that morning (paint still wet to touch) and found that the booking had somehow come through to Clark from Otel.com as "standard double". We were there 3 days and did see other nice rooms but were told that these were not available.
No hot water, we had to call the lobby each time and request. Then a man would come up to our room and put his hand under the shower for 10 minutes while the boiler or something fired up, and my wife stood around in a towel. Ah, the romance of India. The bed smelt of urine, and we did eventually get it replaced on day 1 which was good. Lots of renovation going on, but they did give us some free meals at the hotel restaurant which was some compensation. To go shopping we booked a van and driver at an exhorbitant price from the hotel travel desk. The driver got sulky when we wouldn't get out at the "commission" place that he recommended, and dropped us in the middle of nowhere, which was quite scary.
Avoid...try somewhere else...

We booked three rooms in advance for the Clark International - but despite having our bookings confirmed (and our credit cards charged!), on arrival we discovered that the hotel had over-booked itself and were abruptly ushered round the corner to a much lower standard hotel.

Although our booking was with the Clark, we can only review it on the basis of the accomodaiton they supplied us with: the rooms were dull and not clean (a thick layer of dust covered most of the furniture); the bathroom consisted of a shower, an overflowing toilet and a bucket; the ceiling was covered with small flies; the hotel was noisy (children running around and constant unidentified dripping in each room during the whole night); and the breakfast cutlery was not clean.

When we confronted the manager of the Clark International about being moved to inferior accomodation, he claimed that it was due to a business conference, and as a result the cost of our evening meal was waived - but we still left feeling shortchanged and somewhat disappointed with the experience.

The communal areas (including the restaurant) in the Clark seemed of an acceptable standard - the roof terrace is worth a look for the sight of a heaving city.

However, even if we had a cast-iron guarantee of a room at the Clark, we would probably not book there again as the hotel does look rather tired.

First of all in order to provide readers with unbiased review, it will be best to start with the general context. First-timers in India, especially travellers from Europe and the US should know that India is very different place from home, not saying good, bad, beautiful, or ugly, the word different incorporates all those adjectives. My word for India would be spicy. When I arrived at the airport, I felt a little disturbed, it cannot be compared to the Munich airport that I left. The facilities looked much older, it was dirty and the place was crowded with colorful people. OK, I needed a coffee urgently, first surpise was that there was no schwarz coffee available, don't you even think of a good espresso, so I had to go for a nescafe.

On the way out of the customs, a driver holding a sign with my name was waiting (I requested from the hotel my complimentary pick-up). The trip to the hotel was an adventure itself, people cooking in cauldrons on the street, small cars and motorbikes everywhere. The traffic is very busy, all cars scratched and those people horn vigorously, in fact, due to the fact I guess that they drive on the right side, on the buses you see the signs "Keep distance" and "Please horn".

This habit of pressing the horn vigorously, I did not like, because in the Clark hotel, I could easily hear those, because of the ill-fitted windows. Well, the first night it bothered me a lot, from the second night on, I got used to it.

A few words for the hotel - it is situated near Khan Road (Ghaffar market) and honestly it is very busy area, dirt, small shops, street vendors, ugly buildings. The hotel itself is OK, reasonably clean and the staff was friendly, but I would expect more for 60-70 EUR a night. There was hot water during the first day, then disappeared, then came back. Breakfast was...OK.... I had an omlett, some toasts and butter....the rest I did not eat. I had troubles finding good quality food. My Indian hosts, however, brought me to a distant beutiful residential area, to a restaurant called Chopsticks - excellent place (I remember it was located in Asiad Village)

The hotel has a computer room with ppl who reply to e-mails, 3-4 of those young ppl I saw.

Here I must mentioned that before picking up Clark international, I had hard times finding a hotel in India, and my travel agent could not help me much. Later speaking with my Indian hosts, one of my suspicion was confirmed - mid-range hotel in India is not what the European traveller expects. OK, Clark Internation is really a mid-range hotel for India, some of the other hotels in the area, those with fallen letters from their signs, really scared me. So, in New Delhi there are some very shitty hotels, some that are OK, like Clark International, and good hotels, which I later saw. The good hotels are located around Counnaught place.......beatiful gardens and luxury, but available for a bit above $ 300 a night.
Some names of those are:
1. Hotel Imperial
2. Hotel Le Meridian
3.The Park
4. Shangri La
5. Ashoka Palace
5. Taj Mansingh

It is your choice, some people like to walk in the dirt, in those charming markets and bargain, however I got sick from the food and water (no ice, only bottled water), I had a three-day diarreah when I came back home, but this is because I was not cautious enough. I saw beautiful palces (Humayun Tomb, Qutub Mnar, Sagrafang Tomb, Museum of Handicrafts, India Gate.....), lovely gardens and everything is cheap.

We stayed at the Clark International for about 5 days while we were in Delhi. It was booked for us by friends in Pune.

Whilst it's not the best hotel in the world (the hot water in our room -- 404 -- didn't work properly) it was clean, reasonably comfortable and the food was generally very good.

We spoke to a number of other guests, none other had problems with the hot water. My guess is that it's not common to all rooms.

They don't speak an awful lot of english, but enough for english speakers to easily get by.

The food deserves mention. I imagine they've put in more effort since the review I read previously. We found the food to be of a reasonable standard, certainly nothing disagreed with us.

If I have one issue it is that quite a number of the items on their menu were always unavaliable. However, one of the waiters said that if were were prepared to wait he could get us one particular dish -- gulab jamins. He went to the markets and returned with some for us. He did likewise on a number of subsequent occasions.

This hotel has markets in the streets surrounding it and we managed to get a number of things from them at very good prices.

My wife needed some medication for a headache one morning and the hotel sent someone out to get us some. They returned with some Ibuprofen. They charged us 10 Rs (50 cents US) for medication costing 6 Rs. I think that was very fair.

We were reasonably good tippers (10 to 15%) where service was good and the staff always tried to help us.

What you might find odd is that you don't have a tab here. You're expected to pay everything as you use it .

A previous complaint was that a recommended travel agent suggested a taxi for a trip where a train was wanted. This is really more of a hire-car with a driver than a taxi and it is a common method of travel in India. We used one (a Cool Cab) to get from Pune to Mumbai as we were preparing to leave. Road travel is probably a little more "interesting" (read dangerous) that in developed countries, but if you're on the tollways the traffic is pretty well behaved. A Taxi probably costs around the same as first class A/C train travel if you've got 2 or more people going (we had 4).

We paid about 3000 Rs per night which is more than we paid in Mumbai (1000 Rs per night) but this was a hotel, not a guest house.

siamo state in quest'albergo 2 notti alla fine del nostro tour in Uttar Pradesh e Rajastan. avevamo prenotato già dall'Italia perchè avevamo letto molte recensioni in cui dicevano che era difficile trovare posti decenti all'ultimo momento.
l'albergo è in buona posizione, a New delhi (assolutamente sconsigliata per i turisti Old Delhi) e vicino alla metro (una nota sulla metropolitana: c'è l'ultimo vagone riservato alle donne per cui, se siete donne, , fate attenzione a non salire negli altri perchè vi ritrovereste sole donne in vagoni superaffollati di uomini e non sarebbe una piacevole esperienza....).
la colazione era ottima e abbondante, più americana che continental.
la stanza al primo impatto sembrava molto piacevole, piccola, ma ben arredata, con un televisore lcd, arredamento di design. peccato però che l'insonorizzazione fosse nulla per cui tutta la notte arrivava il rumore della strada (supertrafficata !!). e per fortuna noi eravamo al terzo piano, non oso immaginare ai piani più bassi come fosse....
il bagno era piccolo , ma pulito, con accessori da bagno. peccato poi che i particolari lasciassero assolutamente a desiderare (dalle foto si vede !!). credo che la stanza fosse stata ristrutturata di recebte , ma non così il bagno
per concludere decisamente troppo caro per quello che offre (144€ per 2 notti in India equivalgano ad almeno 3 volte tanto in Europa e il livello di servizio non era assolutamente all'altezza!)
se arrivate a Delhi dopo un tour chiedete al vostro autista di farvi vedere qualche albergo: loro in genere ne conoscono vari anche di buon livello e i prezzi saranno sicuramente più in linea con la qualità erogata )

The first morning of my stay in this hotel, there was a call in my room from hotel reception. I was called to come to the reception.

The hotelman introduced a man to me and said that this man helps me so ask him anything.

Actually, this man was a worker of the tour company. With this company, I got so much troubles.
Hotel workers are ,of course, the side of tour company, and I couldn t believe anyone.

The hotel sold its customer to the bad tour company. That s too sad.

My sister had booked us into the Hotel Clark International for our stay. All was paid by credit card for 3 days. The hotel informed us we all would be picked up at the airport and we provided our flight details,etc.
The driver missed my sister and her husband at the airport when they arrived. I was also not picked up at the airport. I called the hotel number a few times from the airport and the telephone number was not working. After waiting 30 minutes, I took a taxi to the Clark International. I got to the front desk and said, " what happened to the driver?" Their response " The driver is at the airport." I said , "maybe you want to ask your driver to come back." They could not care if the driver was waiting or not.
I checked into my room and found the driver had also missed my sister and her husband. Upon further inquiry , they sent a driver who does not read and expect the poor guy to read flight arrivals and departure. My brother-in-law had gone earlier with the driver to check if i was waiting and the driver did not know which exit was for arrivals.
When we inquired why do you send a driver who can't read to pick up passengers.
The manager mumbled something.and he did not really care if guest were satisfied or not as long as they paid. Some of the staff were apologetic for the chaos caused. The manager could not care less. We also found out the driver sleeps in the car as he is not provided decent accomodation. Exploitation of staff is unacceptable.

The breakfast is for western backpackers. Oily omelet , toast and bad coffee. The location is horrible -in the middle of a traffic jam- noisy and dusty. For what they charge- one can find a decent hotel and a price worthy hotel. Bottom line-avoid this hole at all cost. And it is by NO means anything international!

Mr & Mrs Mano writes --Our experience was a nightmare after they collected full payment upfront -- Owner and his senior manager are liars -- denials all the way when we asked him how could their driver miss both us and our brother arriving from two destinations on the same night. Ripped us on the paid rates by making us absorp airport taxi cost when they promised complimentary pick up.
Suite room was overlooked a dirty part of the city and there were tiny insects in the room - so much for suites.
Breakfast was pathetic and worst was the treatment by accounts and management personnel -- all trying to make a quick buck out of guest.

This is the worst hotel I have ever been in my entire life. It was a very noisy, unclean and dusty hotel. They were building elevators and everyday it was very noisy. I was with an infant and the baby could not sleep at all. Too loud in the entire hotel and on top of that there was some other sound like a vacuum cleaner that made my baby very irritated. They moved us to another hotel owned by them Clark Surya. That place was worse than this. We had to call the front desk to turn on hot water everyday in the shower. They billed me for someone who ordered stuff and I had an argument with them. Since I had an infant with me, I took breakfast tea to my room for my wife. They charged me Rs.125 for 3 masala tea. This was a horrible experience. The hotel has nothing that is shown on the internet. I stayed in the executive suite and the rooms are very very small. Don't go for their free breakfast or their internet pictures. It’s not at all what you see on the internet. I got a taxi from the hotel and they charged me 3 times for 10 kilometres. Please find a better hotel and not Clark Surya or Clark international. Very sorry to say this but it’s pathetic. I would not recommend anyone staying in this hotel

In India there are two extremes, like everything else in the society.
On one hand there are very expensive luxury hotels compareable to any 5* hotel in the world and on the other cheap, filthy holes.

Finding decent mid-range hotels seems to be an insurmountable task.

I wouldn’t complaint about location, because I wanted to experience the original India, so location doesn’t bother me even if it is at really crowded, old-town. I was there to enjoy the mainstream India, not to hide in some luxurious hideouts.

Please, keep in mind 80-90 Euro can give you quite decent double room anywhere in Europe.
I have no objection paying 80-90 Eur/night even in India if I get corresponding standard/service. This hotel charges you 80-90 Eur and what do they give you back?

1. A lousy, dirty airport-hotel transfer … taking a (much better) taxi yourself would cost you 8-9 USD.

2. Front-desk that would go out of the way to fleece you. And whenever such things happen it is always due to managerial policies and guidelines given by management/owners. Staff at lower tier would never ever dare to be oversmart if it is not sanctioned or encouraged from higher levels.

3. Room standard is ok (for an Indian budget hotel) but absolutely nothing that justifies 80-90 Euro.

4. Very mediocre breakfast (even by Indian standard).

While generally it is valid for more or less all commercial sectors, particularly in hospitality branch the lethal most mistake one can make is to play around with customers. To make them feel cheated is an unforgivable sin, bound to hit back - badly. Exactly so, we were made to feel at our arrival.

I had a 26 hour layover in Delhi, ugh, and I wanted a hotel that was clean, with Wi/Fi where I could crash for the night. This hotel has wi/fi but it is not what the photos portray. The photos that the hotel uses for promotion totally fail to capture what you get at this hotel. Go to Tripadvisor for photos of those who actually stayed here.

This hotel is very old and run down. In the room the ceiling fan is too loud to run and to turn off the lamp next to the bed you have to unscrew the bulb. There are stains on the sheets which show that cleanliness is not part of this manager's mentality. The fuzzy TV works but the remote doesn't .... I hope you are getting the picture.

The words that come to mind are: grimy, tacky and overpriced for what you get. Finally, outside, where the hotel is located, is blighted, noisy and remote.

Conclusion... there has to be better property's for just a night than this.

This hotel has its reception area open to a very undesirable tour operator (who walks about the hotel giving the impression he is a hotel employee) who attempts to sell you a golden triangle tour for a very high price. Of greater concern is the fact this man somehow manged to find what room we where in, and infact made an internal telephone call to our room to attempt to arrange to meet us to sell his tour services. I wonder if the hotel is taking a commission for this? He was present in the hotel lobby bothering the tourists on all 3 days we where there. His office is around the corner from the hotel, and he will attempt to take you there to do a hard sell.

Despite this negative first impression, the food was great as was its price, service could be better. Hotel pick up was relaible. Front of house staff attentive, but aloof at times.

Air conditioning was not working in our room and it took over 2 hrs to relocate us. The drains are very smelly and the room had a musty smell to it . Generally clean and well presented. No window in either room so no natural light.

I booked the Hotel Clark International directly via their website.. The hotel requested my credit card information for a confirmed reservation. When we arrived in Delhi from the airport at 1:30 am we were told the hotel did not have a room for us, the hotel was fully booked. They never mentioned this to us when we called from the airport for our transfer.They said they would put us up into a "sister "hotel down the road. The Hotel Surya was awful... We were so tired from the flight and it was in the middle of the night we just slept in the room in our sleep sacks.Thankfully I had the insight to buy them. The next morning as we were flying to Varanasi my wrist started itching and I noticed I had small red marks, bed bug bites. I booked the Hotel Clark International so our first night of our 21 day trip to India would have a smooth start. it was anything but that..I was charged the same quoted rate even though we stayed in an inferior hotel, something I would never had booked. I could not recommend them due to this poor customer service. I felt I had been ripped off with their bait and switch..

It was their third offer of a room before we decided it would get no better. First room had creatures crawling around the shower floor. Second room offered had blood on the towel.
The so called romantic roof terrace restaurant did not serve wine(we had to locate/bring our own) and the roof of same is lined with bamboo, above which numerous pigeons reside, dropping feathers etc into one food while dining.
Only one of our party(of three) was sick over a five day period, but we spoke to another resident whose friend was confined to their room for a couple of days with food related problems.
Tried to charge for a non appearance as one of our party coming from Thailand to meet us in India had to alter booking(due to Bangkoks a/port being closed) only refunded us after several days of verbal discussions/culminating in our having to remind manager of our post holiday review intentions.
Most definately would strongly advise against booking this establishment.

My partner and I have just returned from a holiday in India where, as part of our itinerary, we had pre-booked our first two nights at the Hotel Clark International in Delhi through Expedia, for which we were charged £40.70 per night - a lot for India, but we wanted to ensure our first nights were comfortable.

As part of our booking, we had requested the free airport pickup to the hotel, advertised on the website. We received our confirmation and were looking forward to our stay at the hotel.

However, on arrival at Delhi International Airport, there was no one from the hotel to pick us up. As a result, after lots of trailing around the airport in the middle of the night, we managed to find a driver who was prepared to take us to the hotel in the city (at an extortionate rate).

On approaching the city, I phoned the hotel to get their exact location. I was first told by the receptionist that we only had a reservation and not a booking. I informed him that we had prepaid in full and that I had a full confirmation voucher from Expedia.

He then told me that, yes, we had had a booking, but they were no longer able to give us a room, and had decided to put us up in another hotel nearby instead. We were utterly dismayed given that we'd spent a lot of money on the first nights of our holiday to avoid this sort of hassle!

Given it was so late at night, we asked for directions to the alternative hotel - Hotel Blue Sapphire. Although we were told this hotel was of the same quality as the Hotel Clark International, it turned out to be pretty awful . It certainly was not near the quality we'd be led to expect from the Hotel Clark International.

Until now. our experiences booking through Expedia to date have been an entirely positive experience - but this was a nightmare. At best, Hotel Clark International messed up - at worst, they scammed us into taking a cheaper hotel, and didn't honour a prepaid contract.

Booked via Expedia 3 weeks prior to stay. Included in room price ($100 AUD) was airport pick-up. On arrival day had to email hotel to make sure they were going to pick us up (they were not bothered). We pulled up to hotel and parked - an auto (tuk tuk) accidently scratched the drivers old rusty car, the driver got out and smashed the auto guy across the head...meanwhile we were stuck in the car. Nice welcome!

Check in, typical India...cold, fill out forms etc. Taken to room way way down back of hotel near generator. Room tiny, and in disrepair but neat (on surface). We thought O.K...it is Delhi (overpriced and poor quality).

Within the hour..."bang, bang", the sounds of drilling/sawing and metal banging. After 2 hours we called reception and asked when will the sound stop..."oh 5 minutes". So after about 40 mins we thought lets go and see reception desk. Upon leaving our room the door was open adjacent. We walked into room where 2 guys were painting, the room was luxurious compared to ours and large. So we thought as we booked a superior delux we can change room. We walk up a level to see what the banging was and found all floors under maintanence, people everywhere painting, just crap everywhere.

So we went down stairs and asked to see another room. "No rooms" we were told. We asked to see the manager..."You wait". So we sat in foyer....after 30 mins of waiting we went up to the room, expecting the manager to call us when he was able. No call.

About 45 mins later we decided to pack backpack and go into central Delhi for better hotel even though the Expedia / hotel took our money upon booking and credit card had already beeen charged.

At reception the manager appeared. He was not bothered by our request nor concerned that we left. We did mention we would be complaining. We think they preferred not having guests at this time, cause we did not see 1 single guest during our 4 hours here.

We complained to Expedia the next day, and they contacted the hotel and a refund was in the process (1 week). We would recommend not to stay here. No restaurant, no alcohol in mini-bar.

We travelled for 6 weeks in India/Pakistan and by far this hotel was the worst we encountered.

I booked on expedia.com, choosing by price ($110), thinking there are a slew of hotels in the $30 range and a slew in the $300 range, and this would fit right in the middle. It did not. It is not near a 4 Star hotel, but what in India would be called a 3 star. Rooms are noisy, "India Clean" (sort of scruffy) and not worth more than $40. It seems the hotel is advertising on places like Expedia looking for people shopping by price -and trusting that you get what you pay for. While this is true generally, in India it is generally less true. Also, they overbooked us and moved us on the 2nd day of our stay: to a "3 Star" that was less than half the price (although they attempted to keep the rate the same) but was actually nicer.

Please don't go to this hotel - it is rated 3 star - it wouldn't even get one star in the UK. The rooms are old, the furniture is uncomfortable & the bedding was always damp. The windows are ill fitting, allowing in all the street noise and the traffic fumes, making sleeping impossible. The bathrooms are TERRIBLE, the food in the restaurant (we only had breakfast) is appaling & the cleanliness is very dubious. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else.

Firstly the hotel did not collect us from the airport, as agreed, making the excuse that they had somone waiting for us the day before, all day. I suspect that it's not the first time either.

We had booked a delux room via Bookingsin. The room was certainly not delux and did not have many of the amenities advertised. Furthermore the bathroom was in a very poor state of repair, with the bedroom being poorly funished, tired and suited only to backpackers/students.

Genrally we found the staff unhelpful and the hotel very poor value for money.

After two nights we moved to a hotel a few hundred yards away called the Mehar Castle. Though nearly as basic the staff were helpful and friendly. The rates were a fraction of Clark International.

I made the same experience at the travel agency, round the corner, where they drag you into with false promises upon arrival at the hotel and try to hard sell you a tour through India for lots of bugs in a minivan.They were also lying to us when we asked them to arrange train tickets and connected us to some man who told us there wouldn't be any tickets available,but there were plenty available when we went ourselves to the train station.The hotel and the rooms are dirty, the bed linen is stained and the breakfast consisted of burned toast,rancid jam,sour milk in the coffee and the omelet ruined my stomach.This is a complete rip off and shouldn't be advertised anywhere.

I am an Indian and I fully share the views of the foreign tourists to this hotel. My experience with Clark was similar, though I managed not to stay there at the last minute. From the time I made my first call to the Reception, I was greeted by irresponsible and discourteous staff who gave me no valuable information about my intended stay. They sounded downright arrogant on phone as if I wasn't fit to stay there. Even after they had assured me I could get a room, when I reached the hotel, they curtly told me that no room was available. After I was turned back, I checked in at the nearby Regent Continental and it was really a heaven. Their service was superior, staff really polite. Of course, the complimentary breakfast was irritating as most lodgers overloaded themselves with freebies leaving others nothing to eat. I certainly recommend Regent Continental to Clar any time.

The staff were at times rude, they provided us with a guide who could not speak a word of English, the air conditioning either didn't work or was too noisy plus the breakfast was either non-existant or disgusting.

However the piece de resistance was when we asked them to help us book a train to our next destination. They sent us to a Travel Agents just round the corner and they tried to get us to go a couple of hundred kms by taxi, saying that we'd never be able to book a train. We even had someone on the end of a telephone saying that there weren't any seats available, and we haven't even said where we wanted to go. When we complained to the hotel about their association with the unhelpful travel agent they were very defensive an unapologetic. All I can recommend is to give this place a wide berth.

Dining can be a different experience at Clark International. An exquisitely designed 24 hours Coffee Shop with subdued lighting and scintillating music is an ideal setting for catching up on those rare moments of togetherness.
