A PARTE LA VICINANZA AL RED FORT NON CI SONO ELEMENTI PER SCEGLIERE QUEST'HOTELGenuine Expedia guest review
"hotel tara en la vieja nueva delhi,!!"
la vijea Delhi, es fuerte, intensa, mezcla de fuertes olores!!todo eso es este lugar!! es impresionante!! el hotel es limpio, el personal excelente, todos hablan inglés, son serviciales. El servicio de bufet a la habitación impecable!! Me parece que no es un lugar para ir con niños. Tiene cafetera electrica, te dejan bananas todos los días, la lavanderia […] es muy buena y economica, como todo el hotel, muy cerca del fuerte rojo y también del mercado de especias;se puede ir caminando y es genial, son negocios donde van los indúes (no donde te llevan los guías)nosotras fuimos en invierno y tenian caloventor, es muy recomendable el hotel. PD:la agencia de viajes que esta al lado no es muy recomendable!!busquen en internet otra!!(caro, simpatico al principio, el hotel de agra de terror!!despues no se hace cargo de nada.

"Gem in Old Delhi"

In most picturesque neighborhood lies Tara Palace. A place where you will find good indian food, pleasent staff and feel like home sooner than you think. Free Airport pickup and helpful staff will make your stay in Old Delhi unforgettable.
"the worst hotel in Delhi"
11/19/14 RobertaCRO Osijek, Croatia
taxi didn't come to pick us up from the airport and then stuff lied to us that it was a festival (in the 4 o'clock in the morning?!?) and that was the reason why they didn't come. Of course, streets were completely empty and there were no sign of any festival. After that they told us that we can't order tikka masala, tandoori or any other proper meal because they don't serve meat. And they don't have hot water. Actualy, they don't have ANYTHING except dirty rooms. So we moved to Ajanta the same morning. The worst hotel i've ever seen.
"Good "bang for buck" hotel"
11/09/14 Ben R
We were picked up from the airport by a friendly driver who took us all the way to the front door, good job too as the alley way the hotel is hidden is pretty dark, dingy and foreboding. The surrounding market is so busy it's a bit intimidating and the locals will attempt to latch on to you. The hotel itself is a good budget hotel that's perfectly situated for the Red Fort and the Jama Masjid. They can help with taxis to the rest of Delhi and offer a tour (I didn't take it so can't comment but they were pretty competent in most other areas). TLDR: good budget hotel, if you want to stay in old Delhi then this is probably the best place.
"Consistently reliable, friendly and great value."

I have now stayed at the Tara Palace Hotel in Old Delhi on four separate occasions, twice with groups of students en route for the Himalayas. I have found it to be a really great little hotel with everything I need for a one or two night stay. It is great to arrive here and give students a taste of the vibrant old city and as the Tara Palace is within walking distance of the Red Fort, the Jamaica Masjid , Chandni Chowk and the metro is just around the corner it is a great location. It is not however for the faint hearted or those who like India light! This area is a teeming real place where People are busy going about their daily lives and there is absolutely no concession to Western sensibilities. The Hotel is a lovely clean oasis in amongst this slice of old India, with comfortable beds, clean linen, excellent Indian vegetarian restaurant...they will even put tables on the roof where you have a lovely view of the old city all around you. Service is excellent and it is reassuring to see much of the same staff 3 years on....Pavan is really efficient at making sure you have all the support you need for your groups arrival. If you are looking for luxury then this is not for you either. But if you are looking for a decent, clean, well run and friendly hotel in Old Delhi where you can feel safe and looked after this is the place for you. My students have all loved the contrast of the craziness of Old Delhi with the tranquility of the mountains. I will definitely be back.
"Always dependable, always friendly"

We made our fifth visit to the Tara Palace at the end of September. We've been going for many years and this is always where we start a holiday if we fly into Delhi. The place is super-clean, basic but comfortable and the staff are second to none. They'll help with anything you want but they won't pester you with things you don't. As 'regulars' (their term) we don't have to pay a deposit or even give a credit card to guarantee the booking. The airport pick up is free if you stay two nights or more and it's always there. The setting is surprisingly quiet for Old Delhi, located down a narrow lane in the middle of the bicycle market. First timers may be a little freaked if they arrive late at night and find people sleeping on the street, but we've never felt anything but safe. From the roof terrace you can see the Red Fort, the Jain temple, the Jameh mosque and you're a 5-10 minute walk from the Metro. There are much cheaper places but this has the perfect balance of price and quality and at around £28 for the bigger, better rooms, including breakfast, there's no reason to grumble. We love it and we'll be back again and again.
"Good Option in Old Delhi"
10/16/14 Tejas11B Mumbai (Bombay), India
Pros: 1. Right in the heart of Old Delhi next to the Red Fort (Red Fort is at 5 mins walk) 2. Close by to the main market, gurudwara, chandani chowk 3. Lots of eating options close by – Parathe wali galli, Jalebiwala, etc 4. Metro station is 10 mins walk which keeps you well connected to various places 5. Free Wi-Fi in rooms as well (do not take corner rooms) 6. Room service was good. Overall Staff was supportive Cons: 1. Located in narrow lanes, there is some work going around at the main road which caused inconvenience to reach the hotel 2. Overall rooms were average. Cleanliness in the room, bathroom & toilet was ok 3. Hot Water was an issue in some rooms 4. Hotel does not have a restaurant and serves food in the room. Found the Food rates on the higher side which you can easily avoid with so many options available in the market
"Best bang for your buck"
If you are the least bit high maintenance, this hotel is not for you. However, if you are looking for a no-frills cheap hotel, walking distance to some famous sites (Red Fort, Jama Masjid Mosque, etc), clean, with food that won't make you sick - this is the place for you. The staff are very responsive to email, and arranged my pick-up from the airport. I found the driver without any issues and had a pleasant ride to Old Delhi. As a female traveling solo for the first time to India, I was very apprehensive when my cab driver dropped me off in a derelict alleyway with a sad looking 'Hotel Tara Palace' sign. But when I walked in the door, the hotel smelled very nice and the staff was very friendly. My room/bathroom was clean, the AC worked, and the old t.v. got a surprising number of English-speaking channels, which I appreciated due to my insomnia from jet lag. Room service is available 24/7 and they brought me a delicious chicken fried rice (Indian-style) at 2AM. Bottles of water were 20 INR which is the same price you'll pay in a store. The next morning I went to book a day trip to Agra (Taj Mahal) with the booking agent right next door. I would recommend this company 100% because I had such a pleasant experience and did not feel that I was being hustled or ripped off at all (see my review on Holiday Tours and Travel).
"Great value for money"
10/07/14 juhosuom Oulu, Finland
I have stayed a few times in Tara Palace with my wife and we love the place. Staff is friendly and the food is really nice. Some people might find the busy old town too much of a shock, especially first time visiting India, but I highly recommend staying here. Both Jama Masjid and Red Fort are just a short walk away and walking the streets of the old town is an experience you won't forget. Don't be afraid of the crowds.
"An interesting base for Old Delhi"
09/10/14 kiwitreki Auckland, New Zealand
This is a quirky little hotel that is ideal for exploring Old Delhi and Chadni Chowk. Small and basic but we found it clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. Located down an alley near the cycle market it is hard to find and not your usual tourist accommodation. we loved the fact that we could step out of the hotel and immediately be amongst the people, the noise, the busyness, the colour that are India. We enjoyed the roof top in the evenings having a drink and watching the kite flying and the family on their roof next door playing cricket. The dining roof is very small and basic and both times we were the only guests using it. Food was fine. Recommend staying here for a unique experience.
"Love this hotel"
09/10/14 Anna N Perth, Australia
I have stayed at this hotel 4 times over the last 3 years and love it. The restaurant is great, cheap and delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I love the location in old Delhi but it's not for everyone. Its the only hotel that I will stay in Delhi. One very happy customer.
