We stayed in Delhi at the beginning and the end of our trip to India. The two hotels in which we stayed on these two visits provided an interesting contrast. While both The Metropolitan and the other hotel at which we stayed (the Crowne Plaza Rohini) were quite modern, there the resemblance ended. The staff at The Metropolitan was friendly, welcoming and helpful. The comfortable room had an interesting view over Delhi. Most important, The Metropolitan is well located near the center of Delhi, within easy walking distance of several interesting sights, and not far by car or taxi from any of the other sights one comes to Delhi to see. Although the restaurant was modest and not as impressive as the one we enjoyed at the Crowne Plaza Rohini, this factor was not as important to us as the convenience of the location and the friendliness of the staff. The room was also less luxurious than the one at the Crowne Plaza Rohini, but then, we prefer to pay less for our accommodations when we travel. Our purpose is to get out and see the country we have spent time, money and effort to visit, not to luxuriate in expensive indoor surroundings built to accommodate the type of international travelers who want everything to be the same.
We would happily stay at The Metropolitan should be visit this fascinating city again in the future.
