“5 Star Comforts at 3-Star Rates”
Reviewed December 18, 2010

Excellent rooms, excellent service and great location. Our stay at the Velvet Apple was a revelation of sorts. Never knew I could get 5-Star facilities at 3-Star rates in the heart of Delhi. The hotel has well appointed rooms – as good, if not better than some of the 5-Star hotels in Delhi I've stayed in. The 24-hour unlimited Wi-Fi internet connection was of great help as we could use VoIP to save on on our international calls.

The in-room ironing board and full size iron was perfect to remove the packing creases from our clothes. The shoe polish machine in the common area took care of keeping our footwear sparkling clean for business and personal meetings. Laundry service was quick. And the staff was ever so helpful.

The bathroom, which I am personally very finicky about, was clean and well designed and had all modern gadgets and quality toiletries. Sparkling clean and with a high-pressure flow of both hot and cold water.

We even used the banquet hall in the basement to host a small get-together. The food was excellent. The chef was very co-operative and knowledgable. The presentation for our party was done to perfection and all arrangements were made in time and just the way we wanted – right down to the minutest details.

All in all, a perfect place to stay. Difficult to find any fault in this one.

Highly recommended.

Certainly not value for money. Almost like any 2-3 star hotel- but quite pricey.Not sure why one needs to shell out almost 14000 for 2 & 1/2 days (Hotel cab charges not included) @ this place. The small hallway that doubles as their "lobby" is just OK. The Lobby Manager was impolite & didn't have the courtesy to explain what we were being charged for while handing the invoice.The food was just average too.Location is not really that great either - may be safe but seemed quite far from shopping avenues i.e Karol Bagh.Wouldn't stay there next time - am sure one can find a better place for this price & in a better location.

A very nice, clean and safe hotel with friendly staff. The rooms are spacious, as is the bathroom with western toilet. The bed we had was two full size mattresses together on one base, so there were no issues of falling between the crack. It was big enough for our 6 year old child to sleep with us. The restaurant was perfect for breakfast and we ate dinner there once. The only complaint I have was the difficulty getting a car and driver from there. We would request a driver well in advance, only to arrive downstairs the next morning to find issues with it. We finally gave up on them and found our own driver.

I have previously stayed at hotels in the Connaught area of Delhi and will now only stay at the Apple. It is less expensive , located near a metro station in a quiet area.

The food is great but the best thing of all was the service - the staff are fabulous , I was a bit of a pest and kept asking them to do things for me. They were always super polite and helpful.

I felt really comfortable there and will make it my usual place to stay when in Delhi.

Best deal for the price that I have found in Delhi.

We stayed one night here before our flight south to Chennai. The hotel is a smaller size, in a mostly residential neighborhood.
Our room was clean and the (included) wi-fi signal was strong. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent.

The mattress was too soft for us, I could feel the individual springs in it. The hot water tank allowed for one hot shower and then needed time before the next one. And towels were major scratchy.

The night before we'd arranged for a taxi to the airport for 8 AM and been assured it was handled, but when I went down in the morning to check out at 10 minutes to 8, there had been no taxi arranged, and one had to be called. Finally at 8:20 a car showed up for us, luckily we always add a cushion of time before flights.

My daughter and I had a great time staying at the hotel. The staff was polite and courteous and responded to our requests immediately. The rooms were spacious and clean and the temperatiure in the room was very comfortable. . Though the hotel is located by a busy road, we did not hear any road noise in our room. The hotel is about 10 min away from a well known shopping center , M Block market and other sight seeing places. There was also free high speed internet available

The breakfast buffet in the hotel is quite good with a variety of main dishes every day. The waiters were prompt, courteous and willingly served freshly made dosas, idlis, cutlets or parathas to the guests. Once they even called me in my room, reminding me to come down for breakfast. When my daughter fell ill, they served her the best khichidi ever and also allowed us to use another room while they cleaned ours. The food that they served when you order room service is excellent!!! I would highly recommend this hotel!

Located in GK-II a prime location in Delhi, this hotel offers value for money deal. Neat and Clean, good room service, this is a nice comfy, cozy hotel. Mind you, its a small hotel and does not have too many services but rooms are big and decent.
Its also close to the M-block market which has many good restaurants and is a good place to shop.
