"Excellent hotel in New Delhi"
We stayed here 2 nights at the start of our holiday. The hotel is in a very nice area of the city and we walked to Lodi gardens on our first day. We had excellent breakfasts and a very good dinner in the Indian restaurant. The vodka bar is very cool, and tea in the hotel garden in the afternoon seems like a trip back in time. Our room was beautiful, and staff were helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
"Not as good as the name suggests. "
We spent our final night in India at the end of our holiday in Rajasthan. We were met by a barrage of security then nothing. Our tour guide had to go and get our keys, no member of staff spoke to us for the whole 20 minutes we waited in reception. As a result we had to seek out the amenities ourselves. There are three restaurants, the main one is like a modern village hall with average anodyne food. No effort has been made to decorate or create any kind of ambience. We did not use the Chinese restaurant but opted instead for the Indian. It was very cramped and very full of locals with children. We had a very poor meal at a relatively high price. The location does not lend itself to using a local restaurant. The Reception area of the hotel is spacious and tastefully decorated. There is a modern, dark and relatively expensive bar which is quite incongruous with the rest of the building. We were upgraded to a suite, which was spacious and well appointed. Unfortunately the soft furnishings were marked and generally grubby- something that could easily have been sorted with a steam cleaner of ever a little elbow grease! This was a very disappointing hotel which certainly did not live up to the description.
"Still my favorite in Delhi"
Location gorgeous in new delhi, lovely garden. Nicely furnished rooms with all facilities. Most important thing for me : not too big like many of the other luxury hotels, The Claridges is a very special place. As a repeater it really feels like coming home thanks to the whole staff. It starts right at the entrance with the welcoming smile of the porters and the security members. Of course there are some little imperfections like the fact that you can hear if someone laughs loud in the middle of the night or that the staff has to enlarge the breakfast facilities to other restaurants when everybody wants food at the same time. But the whole team is so helpful and warmhearted that this becomes of no importance. The claridges is definitely a hotel with a soul and nothing for people looking for sterile, standardized facilities. Looking forward to come again !
"Amazing Sunday brunch on the lawn"
In winter, the Claridges does a Sunday champagne/sparkling brunch on the lawn. Expensive but worth it! Great buffet style food and drinks! We had a fantastic stay and wish it could have been for longer.
"Expectations too high"
We really thought we were coming to a luxurious and wonderful hotel....yes security is very high as should be but so many 'plastic' smiles and greetings. The carpet in our room was dirty and marked...bathroom cabinets all flaking and we had a deluxe room!! The food was dreadful and very very expensive. Would not return, very disappointed as our first trip to India.
