We came back to this hotel after almost 16 years to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Our first stay was on our honeymoon and our second stay was with our 3 children. The moment we walked in, it felt like home. All of us felt comfortable and the staff were incredible. There is no other hotel in Delhi that can... More

The approach to hotel is very grand and the journey through the hotel just gets better. We had booked just one night on our way back from trekking Everest Base Camp and wanted to stay somewhere special to remember our trip. Don't just the hotel as somewhere to sleep make the most of it. We walked around the hotel for... More

I loved this hotel despite my visit not being that straight forward. I had three rooms altogether due to building works and a broken loo but the staff were fantastic about this. The breakfast was without doubt the best I had in six hotels in my trip to India, the freshly squeezed juice beautifully presented in glass bottles nestling in... More

A very traditional and impressive hotel. The room was large, well appointed and very comfortable. A haven to come back to from the hustle and bustle of the city. The swimming pool is fabulous, photos don't do it justice. Restaurants were great- Daniell's for fabulous Indian food,service impeccable. Spice Route decor amazing matched by the food. But the best part... More

I last stayed here six or so years ago and the hotel is as beautiful as it was then, nestled away among palms in a colonial-era building. The room was nicely done and all the public spaces were terrific -- we ate at the Spice Route restaurant, spent time at the pool and had massages at the spa. All beautiful.... More

I've stayed at this hotel before, always so welcoming, the staff are very tentative and nothing is to much trouble. The food, restaurants and bars are outstanding, the rooms are the best, lovely pool. there is nothing negative to say about this great great hotel. The best....lots of character, history and romance in this hotel.

From the moment I walked in, I stepped back in time. Its old charm, decadent luxury, history in every corner make this property simply the best in Delhi. Breakfast at 1911 was divine but so was the brunch on Sunday. Great gym and wonderful yoga lessons. The hotel spa is definitely another highlight. A delightful experience.
