My main reason for staying at the Broadway was to enjoy the cuisine at its famed restaurant, Chor Bizarre (q.v.). Because of miscommunication between Asia Rooms, the hotel, and me, I was put into a standard room at a superior room rate. No big deal: at about US$80, the room was still a bargain by Delhi standards.
Or, rather, the rooms. I spent two (2) nights in a room that must have been designed to appeal to an eight-year-old.
Sometime during my third day in Delhi, the hotel moved my belongings to a room, next door, that was somewhat smaller but more adult.
My best guess is that an eight-year-old checked in, asked for his/her favorite room, and had to be accommodated.
No standard room has a window that looks out on anything but a corridor. Superior rooms offer views either of the street or of an urban mass that includes a large mosque.
Unique Quality: At 5:10am and again a little after 7:00pm my repose was shattered by a loudspeaker-aided Muslim call to prayer. Since my rooms were in the middle of the hotel, I pitied those whose rooms faced the mosque.
The hotel has two bars: "Thugs" decorated with blown-up photos of American film and real-life gangsters and another adjacent to the restaurant. Meals are served to smokers only in the restaurant bar.
Directions: The hotel is located it a grimey commercial/industrial area. Most taxi and tuk-tuk drivers didn't know it -- or said they didn't -- but when I told them "Asif Ali Road" they always got me to the hotel.
I wouldn´t recomend the hotel, the location is pretty good, just at the border between old and new delhi, and the restaurant very wll know because there is another one in Mayfair London.
Probably the best thing is that you don´t need an alarm clock because of the mosque standing 10 meters from the hotel, the speakers are so loud and so early in the morning... around 6 am that you will be woke up, no doubt... The rooms are very old, the ones at the top are just under the air conditioning machinery and the sound is also very loud.
I wouldn't go back.
