It is reasonable hotel to stay. Rooms are small in size. Wifi is expensive. No Complimentary water on arrival. Breakfast is nice. They have nice night clubs. Staff is very nice and friendly. Location of hotel is very dull.

one of my favorite hotels in the world. Friendly, courteous and caring staff, ideal setting near Connaught Circle (and Metro stops), charming and tasteful rooms, immaculate throughout, excellent food, magnificent outdoor swimming pool, very well managed with attention to detail throughout. I stay for each and every visit. An ideal venue for entertaining local friends. Highly recommended.

I stayed in Hotel Al Raffa in March, 2014. I would say that this is the worst hotel and the hotel management is a fraud. I am sharing my experience and a few other points to mention: I booked a package with my family in which Airport Transfers were also included. They have 2 hotel properties with very similar name...
