Walking in here makes you feel as if you're in the days of the Raj. It's a beautiful, classic, luxury hotel where you are cosseted and isolated from the real world. The service was outstanding and our room was fantastic. It has a very good choice of restaurants although you can expect bills to match. My only gripe is that... More

Truly excellent. Had a suite. Lovely interiors with interesting collection of prints from the days of the Raj. Super breakfast. Great room service. Nicely appointed rooms and very comfortable beds. Decent book shop. Aged TV was the only gripe I could find. Really excellent spa - very good massage, very nice area for steam. I even had a very good... More

My wife was here on a business trip and she asked me to accompany her for the 2 days .. Totally worth the trip. This is definitely one of the finest properties that I have stayed at in New Delhi.

The hotel gives a feeling of British/ mogul period with long corridors, huge rloofs and large rooms. The services and welcome at every stage also matches the Raj period. The location is more then Best. With Janpath, CP at walking distance, all the offices and govt departments closeby is an added advantage. The only minus point, and surprising too is... More

Coming back to this hotel after almost a decade, it is good to learn that it has lost nothing of its charm; be it the rooms, or the service offered. The staff, especially the old timers, were extremely friendly. Breakfast is good. Wifi is also good in the rooms and common areas. Its location, close to Connaught place, was another... More

This is a beautiful hotel in the middle of New Delhi. It is a wonderful haven, with stunning common areas and decorations. There is a "museum" of historic photos and pictures throughout the hotel. The heritage room is spacious, and very comfortable. The restaurants are high class and very safe, no problem with eating salads here! In particular we recommend... More
