“Excellent property with great views and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The best thing about this hotel is the excellent views of the city from the roof-top infinity pool (not many hotels have an Infinity Pool in Delhi). The location is quite good as it is located in one of the cleanest localities with nice wide roads.

The service was excellent and completed the good ambiance and decor as best as it could. I did enjoy the food as well except the thin crust pizza (definitely avoidable). All in all, a good place to stay or hold business meets.

I have stayed in most of the top-end hotels in Delhi - but no where else did I receive the service, the care, the good food as I did at The Palace! It is new - and it is outstanding and worth the cost and much better than some which are more costly! May it long continue to be the best Delhi has to offer!

Room Tip: One trip advisor writer complained about noise. I had a room on the road which passes by on one sid...

The Leela was our second hotel in Delhi but it is the one we will go back to.
Beautiful hotel, friendly, attentive staff without being over the top. Afternoon tea in the atrium with a string trio playing is lovely. Breakfast is wonderful in the huge glass cube ( how do they cool it in summer?) beside the perfect garden. Check your bill carefully at the end of your stay. Limo service had been added to our bill that we did not use. This small point would not stop us returning to the Leela Palace.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. From the restaurant to the gym, this hotel has put in a lot of detail in everything. Staff was very polite and professional.
Needless to say that this is hotel will be one of my favorites for a long time.

The Leela.. Ranked No 1 in Delhi and surely deserves to be! Royal Hotel with Ultra Royal Services and Rooms. your eyes will be gazed! I was appointed a room on the 4th Floor at a decent height so that a good view was available. The minibar had more options as compared to other 5 stars. The room service Indian Food was Awesome ! The Breakfast at QUBE which i will remember for a long time.The spread is huge with options as many as the stars. If you are in Delhi.. You Cant Miss this one for sure!

Room Tip: Take Rooms near to the lift to avoid walking distance!

The Leela Palace located in the Diplomatic Enclave at Chanakyapuri in New Delhi is the most amazing hotel I have stayed at (and I travel a great deal). Every element is perfect from the elegance of the building, the oasis that is your room and the amazingly thoughtful and attentive staff. All the restaurants are delicious and staff go out of their way to ensure you have meals you will never forget. It is worth paying extra for the Club Level rooms.

The breakfast here is the best I have ever had in all my travels as well.

The spa is also one of the best I have experienced. I always make it a point to go back to the Leela in New Delhi! It is pricey but you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for access to the Club Lounge

We stayed there for two nights in December. The pick up from the airport was great, with the person detailed by the concierge, helping us with our numerous pieces of luggage. The check - in was done in our rooms and we were taken to our rooms immediately on arrival. Since we had our niece staying with us unexpectedly for one night, there was absolutely no problem in getting an additional cot placed in the room. The rooms are very handsomely appointed and the mini bar and the fridge are extremely well stocked. There was wi-fi in the room, that was complimentary. The bed was super-duper comfortable and they even have a pillow menu, for God's sake!! The breakfast spread was simply awesome! The concierge also helped me in getting an immediate appointment at a nearby hair salon (Asian roots). Leela definitely won us over with its luxury and service...we will definitely return!

Room Tip: They don't have family rooms, but they have rooms with inter-connecting rooms, which is what we...
