"Genteel style, central and quiet"
Situated in the more genteel embassy end of New Delhi, this hotel has elements of old world style, perhaps a little dated in parts. Our room was very roomy, with two Tvs, and lounge. Bathroom also sizeable with the shower over the bath. Service pretty good, including immediate attention when our door handle fell off, and when our electronic key didn't work. The breakfast area was very cramped and detracted from an otherwise positive experience. A refreshing beer in the garden was a pleasant end to the day. We also enjoyed an early morning walk, anticlockwise from the front gate. It was a quiet Saturday morning, and it gave us a chance to see the government and embassy quarters in close proximity. A surprise find was the site of the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi at around the half way mark of our circuit.
"A good start to our first time in India"
This Hotel has a colonial-style character. It has been running since the 50s and the staff really seem to know what they are doing, We found we were well here and we enjoyed the food particularly in the small Indian food restaurant. This restaurant had a buzz of life and we found ourselves enjoying talking with others there. The bed was very large and comfortable. Possibly ear-plugs are a good idea because India is a noisy place and there was a bit of pipping out on the road from about 6am. The main reception hall is lovely with flowers. There is a porter on the door dressed in Indian style and a lovely tea lawn at the front with chairs and umbrellas. The Hotel provided us with a very good start to our India holiday and was characterful and fun.
"staff went out of their way this made the experience"
Claridges didn't live up to the hype I had heard but it is a nice hotel, the facilities are not bad but the best thing is the staff listened. When they asked for feedback they did act on it and it made the experience more enjoyable. The dhaba restaurant had good food but it's way overpriced, all of the hotel restaurants are to be honest as is the in room dining. All in all not an amazing place but I would stay there again.
"Stay here and eat sleep and stay well"
We were here for two nights on arrival in to India for first time and what a great place to stay. Elegant clean friendly helpful staff and fabulous safe food. We ate Indian in the evenings in the restaurant and loved it. Breakfast was superb and they even provide Yakult! Nothing was too much trouble although having been upgraded to a club room they would not let us partake in the happy hour like other club room guests which seemed a bit mean. The waiter did provide my sister with a trio of chocolate cakes and a candle to celebrate her birthday which was very kind. The room was lovely and comfortable. They should renew the towels though as it does let the place down a bit. Be prepared to tip as is expected in India but one of the porters was a bit pushy so just beware and tip as much as you wish and not what they necessarily want. I did not find the meals over priced at all. I do not mind paying for quality and that is what we got and no stomach upsets which is most important. I would definitely stay here again. Good location although you do need a car and driver to get anywhere but it is a real oasis. The lawn area is nice but beware the tax on alcohol and the mosquitos.
"Safe place away from the grime of Delhi"
This is a large chain hotel situated in New Delhi. It has a nice garden at the front for drinking and eating an smart reception. There are a number of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines. Our room was very ordinary, the bedroom being clean and fairly large. The bathroom however was looking very tired and in need of refurbing. The staff were friendly and helpful however breakfast was a bit shambolic with no one stepping forward to explain how breakfast worked. Service was either slow or non existent, we eventually gave up on our order for toast! Yes I would probably stay here again due to location but when you look under the sepurface there is definately something lacking.
