“Two sides of a coin - Usefully useless or Uselessly useful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Rather than a review this is a self assessment of the property and some details of the experiences I had over there. As a tripadvisor user I see review for two things, pros and cons so getting direct to the point. Cons have larger sentences as they also entail experiences. While reading give more weightage to the pros as they are actually small lines but have a greater priority. Cons here are rather to bring to the notice the faults (as I see) of the managers to benefits for the system and for the reader to take an informed decision.

The good ones first
1. Good Cafe for breakfast only - Great waffles and Idli.
2. Very Very clean (So much cleanliness is a rarity)
3. Very supportive Staff
4. All good material used like Daikin Ac, Samsung LCD TV's, bath fittings etc.
5. Great water force, rain shower and wash basin etc.
6. Great Wifi connection
7. Very good location - Right in front of metro station.
8. 3-4 restaurant menus available for parcel food and they allow to eat in their cafe.
9. Small but cute lounge.
10. Easy transport availability

The bad ones are higher in number and here they are
1. By no means cheap as a "room standard queen" which would barely adjust 2 people costs Rs 3160 for a day with tax. So not a less amount for so small a room. Many available in the vicinity with the same rates and far larger size.
2. All things are foreigner centric. Too bad for Indian Traveller. Its like giving us a feeling that we dont exist. The manager over there comes and personally asks you many times how was your stay etc but that feeling does not flow down the line. Just to make this point a small example. I asked in the AMICI Cafe at hotel if the food is fresh. The answer they gave is "forener khate hai to phir aapna to kya hai" "Foreigner eats this so than what about us". Very Very surprising!!!!!!
3. Too low toilet seat and very small toilet w/c fitting for some height guy or heavy person.
4. Shuttle service as offered in the website takes you to only 4 places and that too at predefined times only.
5. Free mineral water does not have normal temperature water its either cold or surprisingly. very hot.
6. No mat on floor outside bathroom. If you shower and come out the entire room ha to get wet with wet feet.
7. The position of the shower makes it impossible for a kid to stay if he is over 5-6 years as shower area is open and visible during bathing and with kids it might get difficult to shower. This is about the standard queen room.
8. Does not allow late check out. I was to take a cab at 2.00 pm and I was checked out at 11.00 with an silly excuse that a guest want to have your room only when about 70% of hotel was empty. I think its hotel policy probably so cannot blame them but when I left at 2.15 pm my room was still empty :) Also foreigners are allowed late check outs as I saw it live.
9. Do not take a Taxi from their sources. I was to go to Saket from that place and I asked the reception to order a Meru or Easycab and he asked take the local Taxi as it would charge the same. I was given a rate of Rs 500 so I refused and told to order Easycab and reached Saket for Rs. 227 only. Less than half their quoted rate!!!!!

Conclusion: Suitable for a single business traveler only with no-frills self service type hotel and not for family surely. They do not even advertise for family. Not cheap at all and at their rate they do give good service and material use in rooms.

Hi Kinnar J,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a detailed review, it's really appreciated.

We're glad you enjoyed your experience at bloomrooms overall, although we see there is plenty of room for improvement based on your feedback.

In terms of our rates, we are not cheap because we do not offer a cheap product. For example, our cloudbeds™ are designed like a 5* bed and our award winning Grohe rain showers provide an excellent shower experience as you have already mentioned. We do our best to keep rates as low as possible and try to consistently provide our guests with maximum value for money - for example, we offer free mineral water and free high speed wireless internet.

We assure you that bloomrooms is very much a global product built for all nationalities, especially Indian travellers. It may appear to be foreign centric due to its design being different to what exists currently in the local market but it is very much built for the new age Indian traveller as much as anyone else.

We checked with hotel management regarding your check-out and we were told that you had requested a late check-out at 12:30, which was granted as it's our policy to allow late check-out or early check-ins where at all possible. We apologise if somewhere there was a breakdown in communication and you were not able to check-out late as desired.

Regarding the taxi services offered by the hotel, we do not make commission from booking these cabs and have no incentive to offer guests a higher rate that necessary. We will always encourage guests to book themselves an Easy or Meru Taxi, however in peak times they are sometimes not available, in which case we will offer the local Taxi service over which we do not control rates.

We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.


Safe travels,


The Team

I was here for two nights in a 'Standard' room and really loved the concept that they have come up with. This sort of a no-frills hotel is perfect for someone on business or work and on a tight budget, yet wants to have a trendy and modern room just to sleep for the night.

Their ultimate bonus is their attitude towards being technologically and so you get free Hi-speed Wifi (yea it actually is good enough), seamlessly printing of documents in the lobby, and multiple power sockets in the rooms. Some things a person of this era needs a lot.

Their Amicii Cafe has some of the best sandwiches I've ever had, and their coffee is good too. Otherwise don't expect to get a heavy meal available there. Also I was disappointment with the Rs300/- breakfast that had no meat options, just some breads, egg and milk. So yes breakfast buffet was a letdown for that price.

However there is one hugely important thing missing in your rooms. Managers if you are hearing this, you gotta have hooks for hanging clothes and stuff, which is totally missing. Having that, or a small wardrobe for that matter, won't cost you anything yet help your guests a lot. I had to leave my used clothes lying all around the room.

Room Tip: Rooms 5,6,7,8 I think all these are just next to the lobby. I was in #6 and much of lobby noise, peo...

Hi Haldar,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, it's really appreciated.

We are of course very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at bloomrooms and enjoyed our concept. It's also good to hear you enjoyed the sandwiches at Amici Cafe. If you stay with us next time don't forget to try the pizzas and pastas, which are also now available.

We are always listening to our guest feedback and take it very seriously. In terms of hangers in the room we hope you located the 5 hangers we keep on the wardrobe unit and we usually have hooks on the back of our doors to assist with hanging other items. We do however understand that more hanging space may be required and are currently exploring options to offer this to all our guests, so thank you for bringing it to our attention.

We look forward to having you stay with us again soon!

I would have rated this hotel higher. But after booking airport pickup service we stepped outside to find no one there. Being that it was our first trip to india we where overwhelmed with all the people coming up to us outside the airport. Finally we called the hotel who told us we didnt book it. But after taking a taxi there we showed them our email Confirmation. So they gave us free breakfast in the morning. It was a nice gesture. But it could not make up for the bad airport experience. The rooms are small and minimal which is fine. But no refrigerator. And the tv is on the left wall which you cant see good when laying in the bed.
The bed was the most comfortable one during our travels which is a big plus. The staff in the cafe are not very friendly. Also, when checking in they didnt have change and said they would give me later. Which upon checkout they never did. Of course it is partly my fault but at the time I forgot. Only 150 rupees but its the point. Not the money.This Iis a good budget 3 star hotel and despite my experience I would still recommend it.

Hi djrealone,

Thank your for sharing your feedback, it's really appreciated.

We are so sorry you had to experience these two negative events during your stay at bloomrooms, both instances are completely unacceptable.

There is nothing worse than arriving in an unknown country and not having the airport pick-up you had rightfully booked waiting for you. We know you had made the booking and it was human error that resulted in your airport pick-up not being registered in the system.

As for the cash change you were owed this is not your fault at all, it is our responsibility to ensure you get the money you are owed. We don't normally take cash payments at the front desk and thus in this instance we didn't have the correct change. However, it is the responsibility of our staff to register the monies owed and make sure they are returned as soon as possible.

In this case there was no note made of the monies owed and therefore it was near impossible for our other staff to have known about it. Please be assured we are speaking with the staff member who took your payment and will be recovering the monies which of course we would like to return to you and we'll contact you directly for this.

Once again, we are so sorry your stay at bloomrooms was not how it should have been and we are very disappointed that we could not give you the high level of satisfaction we strive to give all our guests. We hope we get the chance to make it up to you in the near future.

Me and my wife booked two nights at bloomrooms for a short stay in Delhi. I did not expect much when booking, based on my previous experience with budget hotels in Delhi. The road outside was quite like expected, however, I was quite astonished when we entered the hotel premises. The reception was clean, there was a nice and clean café, and a lounge with iMacs and internet access. The room was simple, quiet and clean, with a clean comfortable bed, nice bathroom, wifi, and a safe for valuables.

This was the beginning of our honeymoon in India, and the Bloomrooms experience was better than some of the other four and five star hotels we stayed at in India. I will definitely stay at Bloomrooms the next time I go to Delhi.

We stayed with my family (wife and 2 kids) in 5 different opportunities in BR during our 9 months living in India. All of our visits were great and little bit little it grew up to be our home in Delhi. From the first time we stayed back in september 2012, we were very happy to find a mid range option with such high standards. This finds are not easy in India - good price, good beds, linens, pillows, bathroom, shower, clean and new!
We would like to thank again everyone in Bloomrooms, we will miss this place now that we head back to our homeland. Good luck with the new location and keep up the great work!

1. Location - Opposite a Metro Station hence convenient. However, best to call hotel as its situated under the overway / flyover so not easy to comprehend for first timers
2. Shuttle Service - available for drop at specified time/s in the morning & evening to nearest Metro station and market area
3. Booking - 39 rooms in total; look up their website http://www.bloomroomshotel.com OR other travel websites to check for any offer thats may be on
4. Cleanliness - gets a big green tick in rooms and wash areas
5. Staff - Helpful, but hotel is a no frills one - similar to Tata's Ginger Hotels
6. Room - Compact with most requirements but not refrigerator in there. Size and layout focus is on utility. Only AC and no fans. Windows small and shut at all times.
7. Drawback - a) bit tough to locate if new in the area OR to Delhi and if you hop off the metro with luggage on you. b) Decent cafe (Amici) but no wholesome meal options - need to look up menus available for nearby hotels and order food OR step out. Try your luck searching on zomato.com

The Bloomrooms is an excellent place to rest your head. The hotel staff is very accommodating and helpful. The room is nice - very clean with a comfortable bed and modern decor. The bathroom shower has great water pressure and plenty of hot water. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to New Dehli.
