Hotel Grand Godwin3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
After reading some of the reviews I really did begin to wonder what I had booked. I needn't have worried! I had requested a taxi through the hotel and as I hadn't re confirmed since I booked it, didn't think they would be there at the airport. Walked out of arrivals to see no one, however on the outside, there was someone there to greet us. I knew the taxi was complimentary but we had to pay the airport fee.... Amounting to a whopping r180 (about £2)!! We were in Room 402 at the back of the hotel, there was a blind at the window but I'm not really sure what was behind it, (I couldn't make it out) however it never really bothered us as we left the blind closed. Cannot fault the room or really the hotel. Lovely big, very comfy bed. Spacious bathroom with large walk in shower. Room tidyed daily. We ordered room service a couple of times and couldn't fault the food. We hadn't included breakfast with our stay but that was priced at r175 and there was lots of choice, juice, tea ,coffee, fruit, toast, eggs, and local dishes. No problem with any of the staff, all friendly and helpful. My only critism would be a nice cold beer available at the end of a hectic day sightseeing and a safe in the room (valuables kept locked up in reception). Highly recommended.
Grand Godwin Deluxe is a beautifully clean and modern hotel. Lovely rooms with a comfy bed and a decent bathroom. Breakfast is included and has you feeling sated and nourished for the day. There is also a restaurant downstairs near reception. Highly recommended if you do jot feel like braving the streets for some street food. Staff are friendly and helpful. I can recommend this hotel anytime.
Friendly and helpful staff! Saved my life! Today April 9, 2018 I needed to take a cab after midnight (1.30am) and I was scared to be alone in the street in Delhi. They let me inside the lobby even though I was not a host, provided me w/ water and help me by calling and taliking w the Ola driver. Thank you so much for the staff that was there today! Nice to have good ppl in this huge city!
Amazing hotel with very good food.. Budget friendly with all amenities needed..near to main market ..staff is very Co operative including restaurant...they really did great service..will definitely stay again ..
I've stayed at the Godwin on two separate occasions and been quite pleased both times. It's not perfect, but in its price range its quite nice. After staying once, I went to grab a last minute hotel in the area, and though there were better prices nearby I opted to return and it'll definitely be my standard hotel in Delhi. Rooms are clean, of decent size, and quite comfortable. There's a nice ledge for your suitcase above the minibar, a small desk, a television (I've never used it, but assume it works), and one of those silly button control light panels next to the bed. The minibar offers basics you could walk down the road to get yourself, but they are right there and fairly priced and I've appreciated its presence. The tour desk can be a bit pushy (it's India) and there are no great deals to be had with hotel cars, etc, but I found everyone to be friendly and accommodating and willing to help out when needs arose. Paharganj is noisy, but I have to say I've had rooms at the back of the hotel both times, so I haven't been bothered much. When there's a wedding on the street or some other celebration, you can hear it loud and clear, but honestly, this is true everywhere in India. Breakfast is okay, Nothing special, but there's always something decent. There's always some fresh fruit, coffee, and simple omelets on request, in addition to a small, changing buffet of Indian breakfast foods. The walk to the main bazaar is short, but as a solo traveler I found it a little sketchy at night. There are always autos and cabs just outside if you want to go a bit farther afield to Connaught or another neighborhood for dinner. i will say that the restaurants right around the hotel are not great and the Indian Grill off of the lobby is really a last ditch option.
Hubby and I made our reservations in Sept 2017 for a February 2018 arrival; which included airport pickup from Indira Gandhi International Airport. We also received a separate email in advance of our arrival with instructions on where to meet our ride upon arrival. Upon arrival we went to the meeting spot as instructed - NO BODY WAS THERE!!! We borrowed a phone from a local and called the hotel and were told that they didn't provide transportation because they could not get to the airport. They didn't instruct us on how we should proceed to get to the Grand Godwin nor offer us a REFUND on the 750rs that we paid to a taxi driver. During our check-in they had another excuse that the car wasn't able to make it and again, NEVER offered us a refund. Do not make your reservation to include a pick up from the airport; there are no guarantees that they can/will provide this service. The taxi service costs only 750rs. Outside of this, the room was spacious and clean with plenty of hot water; while the bed's mattress was firm (which we like). The breakfast was varied and good; not excellent but good. The coffee was excellent; nice and full bodied. The hotel's location is great; near the train station and sites downtown. Do not expect peace and quiet. The road out front is quite busy and the locals use their horns all of the time. We would return but would not buy the bundled package of their providing a pick up from the airport.
Stayed three nights at the hotel. Check in staff were good. Rooms were decent and fairly clean. Downside, no complimentary drinking water bottle in a hotel which is charging quite substantial to be able to offer two half litre drinking water a day. No amenity kits, i.e., dental, shaving. Basic breakfast spread. Overall it isn’t a bad hotel, however, I would recommend one to stay at their Deluxe hotel right next door for very slight difference in price. Godwin Deluxe offers a far better experience.
I visited the grand Godwin inDelhi last year and had excellent service from the start. There was a mix up with cash at one point which at the time I gave a bad review for but in the end shakiel sorted it for me and had the money transferred into my bank account. The hotel also rescued me from a horror hotel which was trying to con me. A great and pleasant stay all round and the tour that I booked through them with shakiel was excellent I would highly recommend staying there and booking a full tour. I’m writing this review now to amend my previous review as the mix up was eventually all sorted out.
Had a two night stay here, the hotel is on a busy Delhi street with lots to see and experience all around you. The vibrant street markets and train station is within walking distance and you will not be short of something to see and do while staying here. Metro is walking distance too and getting a rickshaw or cab from the front door is not a problem at all. Service from the front desk is helpful and generally knowledgeable. The lobbies and rooms are in places really beautiful, a real surprise for the £35 or so we spent per night on the room. The room we had was a good size with everything you need and a nice bathroom. What lets this place down however was that it was not as clean as an international traveller would generally like. The room needed a good vacuum and dusting (not just the sweep that they seem to do) and the bathroom, while clean, needed a little maintenance to bring it back to it's former glory. For the price, I would recommend this place - it's good value at the £40 a night mark (inc breakfast). Any more than this and it would be pushing it, unless the cleaning standards improve. Note - I am in no way saying this place is dirty! I have seen some real crap-holes in my time, this is *not* one of them - I am just saying it could be better. Get the cleaning right is this place goes from above average to good in my opinion.
Brilliantly placed hotel within walking distance of New Delhi Railway Station. We stayed here at the start of our trip and at the end of our trip. Staff were helpful and welcoming. Rooms were spacious and relaxing and when a generator from a neighbouring hotel disturbed our sleep the hotel were more than accommodating in exchanging rooms. The breakfast buffet was excellent as was the food in the hotel restaurant and very big portions.
