This hotel is an oasis of calm and sophistication and just about lived up to our expectations.
We had booked into a Heritage Room, which was beautifully furnished and very large. The bathroom was however a little small for a room of this price ($430 per night). Our room was on the ground floor and, despite the hugest and most comfortable beds, we hardly slept due to noise from outside our window. We requested to be moved for our second night and we re-positioned in an identical room on the 3rd floor; much better.
The hotel is furnished with loads of antiques, pictures and other objects that make it a very interesting place to walk round. The inner court-yard is a lovely place to have coffee or cocktail and the outdoor terrace restaurant (1911) seems to be the place in Delhi to have lunch. We found the food in the 1911 Terrace to be lovely, but the service to be some of the worst we had in India. Having said that, when we had breakfast the next day (which was amazing – a fantastic range of food) we were served very well.
We ate in the Spice Route restaurant, which has very exotic decoration. The menu is from all over Asia and both the food and service were very good.
We found the laundry service to be excellent. We phoned at 3pm for 3 garments to have express (2 hour) service. On handing over a blouse I pointed out a small tear, trying to show that I knew about the tear, so I would not be blaming them for it. The garments were returned 30 minutes later, pristinely pressed and the tear was mended!
Overall, we felt that the rooms were slightly overpriced but we would definitely stay there again if in Delhi.
