“a damning experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Though it was a short stay for a night, I felt cheated at the room i got for the value,. The economy room was as big as an attic. I felt I was in a furnished prison. The restaurant bhowani junction was good, the staff helpful.

Room Tip: Please see the room for your self before you check in.

During my 3 night stay i found The Connaught one of the best business hotel where one can peacefully stay. Rooms are very well cleaned with all facilities. The hotel is situated in a great location, just 5 minutes walk to Connaught Place main market- the shopping hub. My room was facing the famous hockey stadium- Shivaji Stadium which was interesting. Breakfast was excellent with variety of foods. The staff was very supportive and very quick. The restaurants of the hotel is good. Overall it was a very excellent stay in the hotel.

i suspect this is what you get for $150 if you want to stay near Connaught Circus. The rooms bear very little reality to the photos and both myself and friends felt this hotel was a real swizz for the money. The rooms were gloomy and the bedding felt damp, I actually had to ask for a hot water bottle to air the bed. The restaurant is all brown and dark and has one small window, but to be fair the breakfast buffet wasn't that bad apart from the undrinkable coffee. I really wouldn't ever stay here again unless i absolutely had to .

Room Tip: stay at claridges

During my 3 night stay I found “The Connaught” one of the best hotel where you can peacefully stay. Rooms are a bit small, and bath rooms as well, but well cleaned with all facilities. Location great, 5 minutes walk will take you Connaught Place, a nice place to walk around.

Tired of work during the day, but the “Mehafil” at the restaurant made very relaxed. Very friendly and helpful staff around.

A special thanks goes to Front officer “Mr. Lalit” (If I am not mistaken)

Wow, no words to say… super breakfast.. with lot of variety, I should say that this standard only makes this hotel to a 4 star, otherwise it should call a Super 3 star.

I would conclude saying “It was a nice Stay at The Connaught Hotel, New Delhi

Room Tip: Rooms facing to Shivaji Stadium

Good location at Connaught Place, but hotel needs refurbishing. Tired fittings. Breakfast was plentiful and a mix of Indian and Western.
Not as close to Railway Station as thought so allow an hour for Old Delhi Station.

Whoa this hotel bites the big one!! It claims to have won an award for "Business Hotel of the Year" way back in 1997 and they have obviously decided to "rest on their laurels" as I'm guessing they have not updated the hotel since then.

The rooms have not been renovated in years and they smell all damp and moldy. There is no hot water possible from the sink, only cold, the toilet barley worked I had to jiggle it to stop it from flushing all the time and the TV is miniscule. The walls are wafer this, expect to hear everything about your neighbours life and more!

The Internet chargers are ludicrous! Ive stayed in millions of hotels and even at the super luxurious hotels in remote countries you don't pay this much. On top of the exorbitant charges the internet is as slow as a turtle….and you would be complaining about the speed even if it was free!!!

The breakfast is better than expected but still not amazing……I saw a wannabe chef flip an omelette onto himself…..which pretty much sums up the hotel.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!

The location is good but the hotel is just about okay. Certainly not VFM.
The Staff took 10 minutes for check in and also for check out!! Unreasonable when you have already booked in advance. they seemed totally hassled.
Rooms are adequate and bathrooms are functional.Nothing great.
Breakfast is adequate but the restaurant is very small and finding a table can be tough.The staff here is really helpful and nice.
The coffee shop is small.
The conference room is good but mikes and sound system pathetic. food here is good.

Stay/arrange a conference if you have to- its not too bad but can be better,

Room Tip: Select one facing the main road.
