“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This property definitely felt the oldest of all the Oberoi properties we stayed at but was still a wonderful experience. I very much appreciate hotels that upgrade when they have the capacity and the Oberoi was very nice in upgrading us to a suite, with an adjoining room for our son.
As per Oberoi standard practice, check in is in the room so you can start to get comfortable while the staff show you around. There were wonderful brownies and a nice bottle of wine waiting for us. The beds and pillows are excellent and there is plenty of closet space etc.
The bathrooms feel a little old without a separate shower (old-school step in tub instead) but the amazing water pressure made up for this.
The breakfast spread was very nice, not as big as in some hotels but is supplemented with a large a la carte menu that is part of the buffet. Dinner was really great at the main restaurant.
Best part of the hotel, as always, was the service.
A wonderful start to our vacation throughout India and the first of 5 Oberoi hotels that we stayed at on our trip. We are definitely Oberoi converts and will certainly stay here again!

During our recent visit to India, my wife and I began our adventure in Delhi and spent three nights at the Oberoi.

From our arrival, this hotel just oozed class. Upgraded to a suite, we had a fantastic view over Delhi and the oasis of greenery was amazing. Bathroom and shower were on the compact side but this did not detract from the size of bedroom and separate sitting area. We enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable meal at their speciality Italian restaurant Trevitino and breakfast over the three days at the Three Sixty restaurant was awesome - everything you could wish for and if it was not on the menu, they would make it for you.

The pool was superb: a lovely temperature, big enough so it never felt crowded and attentive service from the pool staff.

And that brings me on nicely to what makes this hotel special - yes, you could say it is a business man's hotel but what it does superbly is blend this seamlessly with the needs of the leisure guest. And how do they do this? - with outstanding staff. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we were treated like royalty from every member of staff we encountered (and this applies to all guests). From organising trips to the attractions in Delhi, recommending the best place to shop to making restaurant bookings, nothing is a trouble and it is always done with a huge smile.

It would be unfair for me to single out a particular member of staff as each and everyone of them were tremendous but I have to say a huge thanks to Mona (Leisure Guest Concierge) who 'organised' us during our brief stay and Abishek (Concierge) who looked after us at New Delhi railway station and ensured we safely made the train to Agra - thanks guys.

If you are thinking about a hotel in New Delhi and you want to be treated like a king, look no further than the Oberoi.

Room Tip: Room on the 4th floor or higher to enjoy the views.

This is one of my very favorite hotels. From the moment we checked in it exceeded our high expectations in every way. The staff were universally excellent and went out of their way to do more than we expected. The rooms were excellent and not musty as per a previous review. The pool is fabulous. The old deep pool is now decorative but they have a fantastic pool in luscious gardens at the rear of the hotel. The breakfast was spectacular with the head chef coming to our table to make personalized suggestions at breakfast. The main bar is great and again surpassed our expectations worth service from our waiter (named Lefit?)
The laundry service was amazing with all laundry and dry cleaning returned before 1800 the same day and returned in better condition than when we purchased the clothes.
Well done to the Oberoi team. This is a fabulous experience and we will definitely be back!

Today i had a reunion with my old friends. i came all the way from Mumbai. I had heard a lot about Delhi's one of the oldest and finest Chinese restaurant. so we all decided to have a meal at Taipan. Reservation was done well in advance by a friend of mine. we had an amazing time. The restaurant was completely packed. initially we thought that its a wrong choice because the food will take time. BUT we were WRONG. Everything was on time. Above all the food was simply Superb. we had assortment of Dim Sums, stir fries from the wok and desserts. In spite of a busy lunch The Chef was taking regulars round in the restaurant and taking valuable feedback from the guests. Its unfortunate that i am leaving back otherwise would have enjoyed my dinner at Taipan. Overall a very pleasant and memorable experience.

My husband and I went to stay for an evening. The room was beautiful and the view from the room overlooking the golf course and many trees was amazing. The bathroom was spacious and shower was very good with the right water pressure.

We ordered room service and had Italian dinner in the room. The food was delivered in a container so that hot food was kept warm, and a staff efficiently and beautifully prepared a table brought for dinner. We did not have much expectation for the food for room service but they turned out to be quite good and we enjoyed our dinner.

It was a pity that we were there for a very short time. I would love to go back for a longer stay.

The Travertino is very popular catering to the elite. It is part of the Oberoil hotel in the capital. The decor is very elegant and the ambience is superb. I went to have dinner here this week which was very enjoyable . It started with organic mesclun fresh plum and toasted hazelnut and raspberry dressing . which was followed by asparagus soup. The penne pasta with vegetables was just right while my friends praised the Asparagus and leek lasagna. We finished the dinner with smooth Tiramisu while my friends had chocolate mouse which was mouthwatering. On the whole it was a satisfying experience and I would recommend this restaurant any time for those looking for tasty food. Remember to book in advance.
