The Met is known to offer cheapest breakfast inclusive rates in Delhi region in the 5 star category, and they definitely serve with a smile.
I got a great rate from a travel agent and online @5350 including taxes, when I called at the reservation,some girl Neha tried to oversell the same room category for 7k..I told her that I was already getting a better rate online..she still kept selling me that rate!!!
I think the staff needs to be calibrated, it reflects poorly. Needless to say, I booked from the agent :-)
I did not have any high expectation, we had business at Le Meridien for a week but due to availability, we took up The Met reservation as a back up option.
We got corner room on non smoking 4th floor, it is indeed super quiet and I loved that part. The housekeeping team is great service, they respect your choice, requirements and privacy too!
Room aesthetics are different and nice, the bathroom is separated from the room by a grainy glass... which is not a good idea if you are sharing room as others have also commented previously.
Its the centre of Delhi, and walking distance from my fav. street chat outlets, so don't bother eating here at the prices they sell at and instead, go on an overdose trip of golgappas and chat at Odeon sweets.
CP is culinary heave and a quick ride away from literally any good to great eating outlet...you can even call pizza hut to deliver here, they wont mind it!
The breakfast buffet was good, the only inconsistency I saw was in the fresh lime juice, the first day it was lovely and sweet and by the sixth day, it was sour and bitter..
If you like your omelettes well seasoned, stand there and ask them to put it in front of you, they kept forgetting my seasoning every time though..
On the last day, I was still eating and they were winding up the restaurant buffet; I told them to bag me a bread or two and the response I got was that you will be charged on al a carte...
Well, I just picked a croissant and muffin in my hand and walked out and ate in the lobby as I checked out..rude, but those are the ways for them I guess!!!
Overall experience - do return for the price and proximity and convenience, and definitely share feedback to keep them on their toes!!!
