“Impeccable service and magnificent decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The care and friendliness shown by every staff member of the hotel was outstanding. We were greeted by warm and friendly at all times. Their décor oozes luxury and elegance. There were fresh flowers at very corner. Do try the many restaurants in the hotel. You would not be disappointed. The laundry service was excellent and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: The club rooms are definitely worth it.

It was an unforgettable stay at The Leela Palace. Rooms & facilities were perfect, the attention to details for the night turndown service was awesome (we were given drinks, cookies & chocolates), food was one of the best in India & staff were friendly & helpful. Everything was beyond our expectation. It was the day of the Holi Festival when one of us asked the concierge to help change her airplane ticket back home. The airline office was closed due to public holiday but concierge tried every efforts to help change the tickets. He called some agents, until he found Singapore Airline office in other country which was still open at that time.

We had other problem on our last day in India. We were refused to enter India again after coming back from Nepal due to Visa on Arrival regulation. While at the same time we already paid for our stay at The Leela Palace & left 2 luggages there as we were thinking we would be coming back to The Leela Palace. Again, The Leela staffs showed their best quality of service, they brought our 2 left luggages to the airport & talked to Singapore Airlines ground crew to send our luggages to us. But we were in the transfer area & were not able to come to the check-in desk to identify our luggages. Thus the luggages were not able to fly with us & The Leela Palace staff brought them back to hotel.

The point is how the staffs made every effort to the last minute until we were boarded the plane home, that was an exceptional service a hotel can do. Our heartful thanks to all Leela Palace staffs. You give meaning to the word "service". Credits go to Concierge, Business Center & Jr. Sous Chef of Qube who explained & prepared us personally our Indian breakfast. Would definitely recommend The Leela Palace to everyone visiting New Delhi.

Eventhough Leela is a little expensive, it is definitely worth it, and really good value according to European standards.

We decided to try it on the first night of a three week long vacation in India and Thailand, and enjoyed it the most.

Service was excellent, AS was the breakfast and the room. Complimentary water, fruit, chocolate etc. We tried the rooftop swimming pool too, and loved it. Nice pool, Nice view, and once again excellent service. They gave us a basket of cold water, limonade, newspapers and magazine, of course with no extra charge. Location was quite good, and served AS a Nice starting point for duscovering Delhi

This hotel is beautiful. Done in a modern luxurious Indian style the interior is impressive. The service is friendly, efficient and attentive. The breakfast in the Qube restaurant is lovely and not to be missed. The pool has the most spectacular views of the city and perfect to relaxed after a busy day in the city. Its gpr comfortable loungers and a great menu of sacks and drinks, worth a visit up there.

We visited a couple of the other 5 star resorts while in Delhi and Leela is by far the nicest.

We used the hotel.car , X5 for our round trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. It is rather price however it does make the 6 hr round trip journey more bearable and a lot quicker as you fly down the new express high way.

Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in Delhi for work or pleasure.

This hotel is one of the amazing places I have visited. I really enjoyed my stay with my family in this hotel. We really had very good time. The rooms were amazing and so beautifull. The hotel lobby was so good. The food was amazing. The staff was also so nice and provided a very good and fast service. It was an amazing experience.

Room Tip: Didn't find any fault in this hotel.

It is worth coming to New Delhi to stay in at this hotel of leela . The suite is just amazing on the seventh floor . The lounge on the 8th floor is worth a visit. The have a pool on the top floor and a French Resturant. Top of line . Good job leela. Only check in was handled very poorly.

Room Tip: Anything on 7 th floor is good.

A beautiful hotel - the rooftop infinity pool is beautiful, looking over Delhi. We ate in the hotel's Indian restaurant twice and was absolutely amazing - the best, most tasty and fresh Indian food I have ever enjoyed - in a stunning setting.
