I have been traveling at least once a year on business to Delhi and India in general since 2001. My local colleague arranged this hotel for mew on my first visit. Since then i have stayed at two other properties in Delhi but keep coming back to The Maurya. The hotel is tops in everything. Lobby is magnificent, rooms are large, clean and well appointed, Gym is fantastic, and the breakfast buffet is great. The staff is well trained and want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Of course the best 5 star hotels in india have the best hospitality in the world but this is really great. In addition, the two Indian restaurants Bukhara and Dum Pukt are exceptional. I am an extreme traveler and very demanding when it comes to fine hotels and restaurants. The Maurys has never disappointed me and this is my only choice when I travel to Delhi.
