“Excellent start to India tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stayed here in December 2012 at the start of our 3 week India trip. We were given a huge room, so not understanding the comments about tiny rooms. Meals quite expensive but grab a tuk tuk and head to Connaught Circus for plenty of choice. Wifi is chargeable which is a touch annoying, but signal was fine. Room clean and very comfortable beds.

We chose The Royal Plaza because it was our first few days in India and we wanted an easy and comfortable adjustment period with minimal immediate culture shock. For this the Royal Plaza is fine.

The rooms were comfortable and clean, although tiny. The wifi was expensive and not very fast. There were few places that you could walk to except for other very large expensive western style hotels. The breakfast buffet wasn't great. Paying twice what you would in the United States for a soda turned me off. I understand that there is a huge gap in price between western hotels and Indian hotels, but I didn't think it was worth it.

If you are there for business and your company is paying the 50 rupee per page they charge to print something out, the 12USD per day to use the marginal internet and covering your minibar it's perfect. If you are a tourist or with your family and want to get comfort there are better choices.

Room Tip: The upper floors have some nice views.

recently stayed in royal plaza during the christmas: one must say a beautiful property. Lobby gives a look of roman empire. Staff was polite. Buffet breakfast was widespread. Pool is beautiful in the evening.would certainly come back soon

Gaarish lounge and rooms are neither furnished old fashioned or contemperory. Location is good near Paalika bazzar and Connnaught place. Resturant and the food quality is horrible and we could almost smell the kicthen and fumes from the resturant. Food nothing to talk about and prices are unrelated to the quality. Room service ok.

First impressions of the hotel were great, lobby, restaurant and suite rooms were well appointed... but sheets we not clean.

Our party booked 2 suites and were there over the Xmas break, 2 members of our party fell ill after the Xmas buffet which is disappointed to say the least.

What is it with service in India? They were a cut above the standard hotel but again it's a clumsy service level verging on the frustrating at the best of times.

Also what is it with charging for wifi when the rack rate is very high to start with?!? Lift your ga

Overall not a terrible hotel but could benifit from customer service training to allow the staff to work more efficiently as a team.
