“Just nice but not great as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Very Nice vegetarian restaurant (Like most restaurants in India) but the restaurant is 20 minutes walk from the rooms, and not good when you are exhausted at night and wish to rest after a long day.
Nice front desk people and helpful
Bell captain and others are a bit greedy. promised me with fruit basket (as I was a VIP) and bescuits but they never arrived.

Arrived Delhi late at night and taken to this hotel after being told that other hotels were fully booked. We're taken to supposedly a travel agent who made several phones calls while we waited only to be told that there were no vacancies anywhere. We were then taken to ashoka international where we were well overcharged, the room was dirty, the bathroom was terrible and the shower and toilet very dirty. Lots of Mosquitos in the room. We were getting ready to go to sleep when the front desk rang asking a question and then several minutes later there was a knock at the door and they were asking for an up front deposit. At breakfast the table tops were dirty and looked as if they had not been changed for some time. In the morning we saw the driver that took us to the hotel the night before, sitting in the foyer with other staff. When we tried to discuss the over pricing of the room the staff got quite aggressive. Later we looked on the web and saw the cost of the most expensive room they had available for a fraction of the price we were charged. Having been to India before and to several other countries including Asia and Africa this hotel is by far the worst and most unpleasant hotels we have ever stayed in. We would not recommend it at all and do not have one good thing to say about it

Of the aeroport, we asked the taxi to pick up to Paharganj. One time arrive, he says that it is not a good place for the family. This aera not good for us. And leads(drives) us to Ashoka. The bathroom is dirty. The hotel is very expensive for this quality. It is thieves and touts .We remained one at night and left by our own means in parahganj. We found very suitable rooms and cheaper.
It's shame for Ashoka, to practise this politics.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel when we arrived in Delhi. We had originally booked a different hotel but the taxi driver suddenly said he couldn't find it and stopped at a "goverment approved" tourist office. We had to follow him inside and the guy working there told us that we had booked a hotel in a very unsafe area and that we should not stay there. We felt pressured and let the taxi driver take us to a new hotel; Hotel Ashoka International.

Stay away from this hotel! Room and bathroom is smelly and very dirty.

It's interesting now reading other reviews of this hotel regarding the possibility of it being part of a scam as we (2 couples) have a similar story.
Having arrived in Delhi after a long flight we took a taxi at the airport to our hotel.The drivers mate after some lengthy driving around told us it was impossible to get to our hotel due to the police sealing off the area due to security reasons (at the time there had been disturbances in Delhi due to a high profile rape case) We were then driven to a travel agents who rang our hotel and allowed me to speak to the manager who told me the same as drivers mate.In hindsight I cannot say who I spoke to really...it may or may not have been the manager.However drivers mate told us he knew a hotel etc etc, of course out on a limp and very tired we went with him to yes that's right The Ashoka International !
Was this all a genuine sequence of events or a well choreographed set up to channel us to this hotel? I have no evidence either way but on returning home and one of our party contacting the original hotel regarding the security incident they said there was no such occurrence and now on reading other reviews it seems to have a certain parallel...These are the facts, I cannot say for certain if it was or was not a scam...So make your own judgement.
The hotel itself was over priced, grim and dirty, our toilet actually leaked onto the floor when you did your business.. Lovely! oh yeah it didn't flush either !We ate there too in the restaurant, again dirty table tops.. Food was OK.
One plus.. The WiFi worked.
We would never have planned to go to this hotel, it was awful. If you do find yourself arriving here by whatever route I suggest you immediately do an about turn and exit the building!

Room Tip: Check out and go elsewhere
