“A taste of the British Raj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

As someone with a love of India, and also with a keen interest in British history, a stay at Maidens Hotel in New Delhi was a real treat. Our Indian customer kindly made the reservation for me and the hotel did not disappoint.

The building was built back in the days of British rule in India and the Hotel still has a grand old atmosphere of opulence, whilst still offering the modern comforts that you would expect of such a famous old hotel.

There is a history of the hotel available at reception and of the famous past guests, Edward VIII was a visitor and also the past Viceroy Lord Curzon, and the hotel still keeps that timeless feel.

Breakfast is available in 2 different ground floor rooms, and was pleasant and filling.

There is a nice "art-deco" pool area with attractive gardens and the hotel grounds are a real oasis set apart from the chaos of Modern Delhi.

Location wise, a cab ride is required to visit any of the old historic sights, as the hotel is located to the North of Old Delhi, and so on the opposite side of the City to the Presidential Palace (Viceroy's Palace) and India Gate, etc.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to sample a little taste of what colonial living was like for the wealthy "Nabobs" of yesteryear.

Room Tip: Request a room with an outside window as some apparently don't have this option.

Hard to stay in double room with not single ray from sun, no drop of day light. Room are lare and comfortable, beds are too soft (may be old and not symetricaly soft). Swimin pool is somehow dirty but breakfast arden is exelent.do not look to much at the buildin from outside, the AC, plubing etc is horibly placed so from north side you hardly can see any original facade. In the garden is several empty buildings and all neigbourhood behind hih walls are half demolished buildings, with many mosketoes

Room Tip: The is probably one or two rooms with daylight, so try to et it ;)

Before going to Kashmir we stayed again at the Maidens on 24th and 27th May. Going to the Maidens is like going to visit your grandmother: old comfortable and and you can always depend on warmth and comfort. Nice to see most of the staff from last time. Our lugguge was stored whwn we went to Varanasi so we only tool a small bag.

Room Tip: I chose a room with a window so you might have some traffic noise. Earplugs are preferable for me t...

I stayed here for 3 nights and found it a truly peaceful place to stay in Delhi's chaos. No traffic noise, faded colonial comfort and spacious rooms ( as others have said, though, they are windowless!). Very pleasant grounds and pool, and the metro (Civil Lines) is a 5 minute walk, meaning you can get places easily. This is also good, because the food at Maiden's is ludicrously overpriced by Indian standards. Room prices are reasonable for what you get, but the place seemed pretty empty, so maybe they are trying to make their money through services like food and laundry. But it was a very relaxing place to stay and I'd stay there again.

A relatively cheap high quality hotel with good food and well kept gardens. Lovely pool though its location by the plant room meant it wasnt peaceful. Very good service.

We were slightly disappointed that our room, though large and well- equipped, had no view. There was a high window with opaque glass and the glass in the door was also opaque so the charm of the old colonial structure was lost and we felt as if we were in a box! You had to have the light on at all times.

We arrived late at night to be welcomed by smiles and helpful faces. The rooms were better than the pictures, which is saying something! Linen, towels and room were clean, crisp and a great welcome. Bathroom beautifully renovated for a touch of luxury. We were given an upgrade without request, which was fantastic as we had 2 young children. even though the pool was a little outdated, the kids loved it! Food a little pricy but tasty.

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of May. Everything was perfect! Friendly, helpful staff, beautiful room, lovely gardens and excellent food. Close to Civil Lines Metro station. We would definitely use this hotel on our next trip to Delhi.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the main building, on the top floor - very peaceful.
