“Great hotel to stay in - New Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

An excellent art deco hotel whilst could do with some modernisation, any needs are far surpassed by the quality of the customer care service from staff. Excellent restaurants and bars, outstanding staff and close to local Khan Market and Lodi Gardens within easy walking distance, even in the heat! About half an hour from the airport and 10 minute rickshaw ride to major tourist attractions.

I stayed here recently for 5 nights and found my stay extremely pleasant and enjoyable. The Taj Ambassador is located very well with Lodhi gardens on one end and Khan market on the other. Every thing is within walking distance- shopping, restaurants, you name it. The staff try their best to make your stay comfortable and their breakfast buffet has a very interesting mix of cuisines. A great pick while in Delhi

This is very homely feeling hotel, having old architecture but yet modern luxuries. the food at yellow brick road is really home like yet tasty and sumptuous. The location is really good, just next doors and walking distance from the markets. Khan market is a shoppers paradise.....

We were only here for 2 days but this hotel was brilliant! We were recommended to go to Khan Market in Delhi for some great food and shopping, and this hotel is literally 2 mins walking distance from it!
The staff were super friendly and helped us out to get a car at 3am to drive us to the Taj Mahal for the day!
They also provided a free Taxi service to the Taj Mahal Hotel across the road for a swim!
Yeh its not quite as grand as the Taj, but we loved it. Nice clean room and huge bathroom!
Only downside was having to pay for the wifi, but it wasnt much.
Lovely charming hotel. Thank you very much!

i ordered a cake & i was terribly disappointed. i paid a bomb for a 1 kg black forest cake to be delivered at a particular date from this site. It clearly mentioned "TAJ black forest cake" -from a leading Taj hotel. the order was delivered one day earlier to everyone's utter surprise & to our disgust was not anything near a 1 kg cake, i wonder if it could even qualify to be called a real Cake, as it almost had no base.. only cream. It looked nothing like what was shown. It was from TAJ VIVANTA, DELHI. surprisingly poor quality... only full of cream & nothing else. A second order that i had placed for a similar cake simply took forever to get delivered.. after waiting the entire day, it was finally delivered at 10 PM...only to have the same low quality! Completely spoilt the occasion & the worth of money spend over the arrangement. And all this after spending INR 2399 on one cake. I personally feel that is good enough money to get anyone a nice posh cake!!

Im surprised,.. i thought if i ordered a "Taj" cake it would mean quite a something.. the name itself should've been enough. But i guess i'll have to think 10 times before i order from Taj again

Stayed here for 2 nights during a quick trip to Delhi since most other hotels were sold out owing to some huge expo in the city. The Taj Vivanta Ambassador could be Taj group's orphan child. I understand that the hotel is a "budget Taj" but the poor condition reflects on the Taj group. This is an old hotel in central New Delhi - a few minutes walk from the superb Taj Mansingh and the shopping haven of Khan Market.

The hotel is about 45 mins drive from New Delhi airport and is close to the metro.

The building that houses the hotel is a heritage structure. The rooms are elegantly decorated
and have been fitted with all the modern amenities required. I booked a deluxe room which had views of the front gardens (most preferred rooms).

During my stay I tried a few drinks at Insomnia and food at the outlanndish and out of place yellow brick road. With the later, I have no idea what struck the management to have such a odd cafe in a heritage building.

To sum it up, I wouldnt stay here again as for the price I could get another 3-4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Reserve a front facing room

Stayed here for 1 night..
The hotel is a heritage property and has some charm - however that is limited only to the lobby and reception.
The rooms are large but the decor is very unimpressive and old - plus there was a strange smell. The bathroom was terrible - really old world. It felt like staying in a lodge - rather than a Taj property.
For the place - the price was way too much.

The location is good - close to Khan market..
The service was not bad. Plus they have free tea and coffee service.
