We had an overnight stop at New Delhi and this was a last minute recommendation. I have to admit that the photographs on the net (and tripadvisor) were not very encouraging, so we went in with a lot of apprehension. But what waited for us was a lovely surprise in the guise of a property with 10 large comfortable rooms in the heart of Vasant Vihar. The old world charm leapt out at us from all the corners - starting with the radiators in the rooms to keep us warm, the solid wooden furniture, the gleaming surfaces, the large, clean and comfortable beds and the quiet.
The hotel offers round the clock room service with a smile. We had breakfast and found the food to be strictly ok. So when in Delhi, and at icon Villa do get your meals from elsewhere and stick to the parathas and eggs and toast for breakfast (we ordered the sausages and fries and they were a big disappointment!)
