“Awesome Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This hotel seemed to be snuck away in a private, secretive location and was a welcome sight when I arrived in Delhi. The rooms are absolutely amazing! with all modern amenities you could need. The staff was incredibly helpful and food was delicious (for Indian food). I genuinely wish I could've stayed here longer. Tip: there is a wonderful lounge downstairs by the pool that's great to hang out with friends at.

Nice hotel which was ultra clean. Food was good- not a wide variety for breakfast but everything we had was nice. The Indian set menu at dinner was really good and reasonably priced! In a safe gated community (on our second night we walked to the Manor Hotel- highly recommended for dinner) but right next to a busy road so traffic noise is deafening!!

Dear Reviewer

Many thanks for taking the time to write the review on TripAdvisor. We regret that you were inconvenienced due to the street noise levels. Due to a major road closure, all traffic was diverted onto this main street. The situation has improved drastically and we hope that you use us again on your next visit to Delhi. I am sure you will find a change.

Many thanks

This is a fairly new hotel and is situated in a private, gated residential area. The building is very modern and the entryway is well maintained with beautiful flowers everywhere. Check-in was quick and our room, 116, was large, clean and comfortable. We had complimentary wifi which worked well. The staff were very prompt to respond to any requests and questions. Although there is no restaurant for lunch or dinner, the breakfast both days was adequate. There is Indian food served buffet style and also eggs made to order etc, served to you at your table. Our favorite part of our stay here was the fact that we could eat our breakfast on the rooftop garden patio. Breakfast is served in an upstairs dining room but the staff will run around and set a table outside on request. This could be organized a lot better as the staff often forgot silverware, sugar, napkins eats, but their willingness to help was obvious and we were able to enjoy the early morning sun, gorgeous flowers and fountains before we set off for the day.

Dear Reviewer,

Many thanks for giving us your valuable feedback. Our staff is our main strength as for us upholding high service levels is most important. We will surely convey your comments to all staff as it will spur them to do better.

However, we regret that no one told you about our highly appreciated restaurant - The Phoenix also on the third level along with the breakfast room. We have a fairly extensive menu serving Indian, Continental and Oriental cuisines in an all day dining menu. It is often in the shadow of the beautiful terrace garden you talk about. We therefore look forward to your returning to us on your next visit as we would like your comments on the food on offer.

Many thanks for bringing this to our attention so that we can address this.

“Peace and calmness in a busy and noisy city in Delhi”

Whenever I travel to Delhi I felt that the best places to stay would be a 5-star hotel before I came across this boutique hotel, Mantra Amaltas.

For me after spending a hectic long day at work, the only thing am looking for is peace and tranquillity when I reach back to my hotel room. Mantra Amaltas offers just that. Though it is just a small boutique hotel it offers more that what a 5-star hotel would offer. In fact I would say it offers much more. Moreover it fits perfectly within ones budget.

Located almost centrally, the hotel room gives you a feel of staying at a heritage place. Their single room are large in size with a small little balcony giving you the required place to move in and around the room. Every room here is equipped with sound proof large windows that instantly kill all sounds and disturbance from the outside world which is exactly what I need while sleeping.

The room is A/C and also has a ceiling fan in the middle of the room with a decent satellite TV connection. I can honestly say that this was and will be one of our favorite places to stay in Delhi. It has a very warm, tranquil, welcoming atmosphere and the team does everything and anything necessary to make you stay comfortable.

If you love walking, the hotel is located perfectly so one can enjoy a long peaceful walk with surrounding trees and nice little bungalows in an around the property.

I had planned to stay for few days but ended up staying for a complete week thanks to the entire team at Mantra Amaltas that made me feel like am staying in my own home.

Thanks team Mantra Amaltas 

all in all i went there with high expectations as my wife had stayed there for more than a week, when i reached there the place looked welcoming, but when we reached the room it smelled damp and sure enough there was some wetness on the walls, we asked to change the room and the did so promptly, the new room was much better but there was enough road noise, not enough to not let you sleep but enough that u could notice.
The breakfast which we asked for our son was perfect and was prepared instantly but for us the breakfast was not up to the mark the muffins were hard and stale and the spread limited.

Stayed 3 nights and really, really enjoyed ourselves. Staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Room was very pleasant. Restaurant was good and the staff very attentive and friendly. The Delhi air was clear our first night and we were able to eat on the terrace. Being January it was chilly, but they brought out a heater for us. This was 1 of 2 hotels we stayed at in Delhi. Though the other was much closer to the sites, we'd definitely choose to stay here again. It's located in a QUIET, gated, residential area. We ate at another hotel's restaurant w/in the colony (Indian Summer, highly recommend the tasting menu), and were able to walk there and back (careful, though, roads are rather dark). After we waited too long to make train reservations to Agra, they arranged a driver for us with less than a day's notice. The hotel driver can also be hired to take you around the city, but it's much cheaper to call Mega Cabs, a company that operates in other cities as well. All and all, a lovely stay.

Many thanks for your time in writing such nice words about us. It is this which rewards us and makes us to do better & better.

New Delhi can be a very busy city and we want to give that solace & peace to our guests. Being located in a very upscale gated bungalow area, traffic is limited and our guests often go jogging and walking.

We have a very active and highly acclaimed travel desk who have put together interesting touring suggestions for Delhi & surrounding. The train tour to Agra is really nice but needs to be booked in advance as it is very popular. I am sure that when you visit us again we will give you many more touring options.

Thanks again,

Avi Puri

I was in India for a month (Sept-Oct. 2012) and the Mantra Amaltas was the first hotel my group stayed in. After that, no other hotel could measure up to the outstanding service, accommodations, delightful staff and the most superior General Manager ! We left the Mantra Amaltas several times to go to other places....always returning to what felt and became our "home' away from home. It was a joy to go eat meals there being waited on by the most courteous staff who tried to anticipate our needs. Room service was punctual, house keeping great, the front desk staff warm,welcoming and inviting, and the man who drives the hotel's taxi was delightful. Above all, this hotel is run by the BEST General Manager a hotel could have. If I go back to India, the Mantra Amaltas will definitely be a place I want to stay at again.
