|The hotel front|
While at Delhi, my daughter and I stayed at Hotel Jewel Palace at Karol Bagh. Luckily for me, it is not very far from New Delhi station. While the cab-driver was keen on charging me a bomb, I persuaded him to accept just half the fare.
Hotel Jewel Palace is a neat and comfortable hotel in the heart of the city and quite affordable. You can find details of tariff on their website mentioned below. The package includes bed and breakfast. What I really appreciated was the heater in the bedroom and piping hot water in the bathroom. I don’t think I would have survived this trip without those.

The service is excellent with the waiters doing their best to please without hovering around to the point of irritation.
We enter a medium-sized lobby where they insist on seeing our identity proof. I believe an address proof is a must. I got away with using my Pan Card, but one might need to get used to travelling with their passport even within India, it looks like.
Our room was on the first floor and it was quite big by city standards. I was thoroughly pleased with the huge single beds and wardrobe facilities. There were also a number of big mirrors in the room. There were a number of lights to make the room quite bright and welcoming.
Breakfast is usually served in the restaurant but can also be ordered in the room.
All in all, it was perfect for my short holiday in the capital and made for a great temporary home.
