“Nice room, terrible location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2009

We stayed at the Amber on our last night in India before flying home.The location is a long way out from anywhere. We wanted to do some last minute shopping. Unfortunately this is in completely the wrong area, It is about half an hour if the roads are good! to get into the centre of New Dehli. We were also disappointed that the hotel did not have any alcohol as we would dearly have liked a drink after a very hot day sightseeing.
On the other hand the room itself was lovely. It was spacious and well presented.
The breakfast was adequate but no more.
All in all room great, location bad and quite expensive.

We were passing thru Delhi so we just wanted a comfortable, clean hotel for one night. Our travel agent had offered two options but we did not care for either. After checking the hotels on Trip Advisor, we opted for this boutique hotel based on the reviews. We found it to be a very nice and contemporary with a great bathroom, comfortable bed and bedding and great staff.

We stayed at this relatively new modern style hotel as part of a wonderful 17 day private tour organised by Mr V P Singh of the Indian based company 'Legends and Palaces '. The bedrooms and bathrooms were delightful and 5 star quality. The service is almost too attentive. Be careful with dinner as VAT & Service is added to the bill. That said, the meals we had were good and tasty. Note, the lounge is part of the dining area and entrance hall. Despite these criticisms, the hotel is in a quiet, leafy sides street and is good value for money for Delhi.

After many hours of research on the web, especially on the Tripadvisor site, we decided to book our 2 night stay in Delhi at the Amber Hotel and we were not disappointed.The hotel was in a quite residential location as well as being close 15-20 minutes to shopping areas, the room was spacious, big window, large flat screen T.V , and white crispy bed sheets clean & the bathroom with seprate thick glass shower area with rain shower on top , the staff well trained and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival there was a welcome drink offered, however the receptionist take us to the room and informed about the facilities. We dined in the restaurants at the lobby level and found the food to be high standard and reasonably priced. All in all a fabulous stay and we will certainly be back.

Good hotel, rooms are wonderful, great staff, BUT! breakfast is very average and basic, that needs to be addressed, also it has not got got a bar, and that was a BIG let down, and we were told we couldn't bring our own drinks down from our rooms. but the hotel itself is very clean, and we would go back,

I stayed here for 3 nights with my 18-yr-old son and we really loved this hotel. We even extended our stay there a night. Delhi is a typical Indian big city - dirty, noisy, seemingly incomprehensible. The Amber provides an impeccably clean, beautiful, calm, quiet island in the storm. The staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was good too. It's definitely worth it to have the hotel send a driver to pick you up from the airport. Also FYI, there are two Amber hotels in Delhi and one of them is in a bad location so make sure you take down the info for the right one.

The Amber is off the beaten path and you would need your own transportation. An excellent, clean and very modern hotel run by a friendly staff who is eager to help. The price for a room is comparable to five star hotels in Delhi. The Amber provides a clean modern place in a nice neighborhood. I would get into a larger five star hotel that has the infrastructure for rental cars, tours and an enviornment to meet other tourists.

The hotel does have access to rental cars but we got a car for less than half of what it would have cost us to get it through the Amber.

  • Liked — Frienly staff and cleanliness
