“Great Way to start the India Trip”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stayed at the Lodhi in April for the 4th year in a row after arriving on our flight into Delhi from Bangkok. The Lodhi has changed hands, used to be owned by Aman and was the Aman Delhi. They've totally changed and lightened up the decor and furnishings and the suite had been painted and was lighter. I think we were on the 4th or 5th floor in a room we had stayed in before. Love relaxing in the plunge pool with some wine upon arriving. This year we were only there the one night (usually stay two) so had to be down in the lobby early the next morning to meet our Batman to head to the Nizzumudin train station to take the train to Sawai Madopur and Aman i khas. The staff is friendly and attentive but didn't deal with them too much other than check in and coming up for our luggage the next morning. We stayed there upon our return for leaving the country. Ate an afternoon meal in the main restaurant. The Mac and Cheese casserole is out of this world. It is in a good location for getting to that particular train station. Our room always looks out on the Humayan's Tomb. Will probably stay there again next March on our way back to Aman i khas.

You surly don't have budget in mind when you are sitting with old friends after long and in place like Aman. But that evening really pinched. The food was below average, service was below average, ambience was just ok and drinks were exorbitantly wrongly charged. Overall, an experience not worth the money we spent and a learning too expensive that brands can be deceptive.

Aman, I will.never be your guest again. Atleast not in Delhi.

Attention to detail everywhere - architecture, art, beds, complimentary beverages and homemade snacks in room, spa and services, food, staff and on. Wonderful retreat from heat and horns of Delhi. Can't imagine asking more of hotel. Manager, Robyn, greated us at breakfast the first day and always addressed us by name. Nice personal touch that made us feel even more special to be staying there. Plunge pool even better than photos.
Note the hotel is now called The Lodhi - not to be confused with 3 star Lodhi. Location makes hiring a car and driver necessary to go elsewhere for dinner. No taxi stand. Taxi called from Oberoi stand had cracked windshield, no seat belts.

Room Tip: Higher rooms give more privacy when using plunge pool.

It's by far the most comfortable ,luxurious not on the conventional "golden old fashion way" but modern tastefully decorated hotel we've been in a long time.
The hotel is big ,but not oversized . The suites are super comfortable with lots of space and
they have a private terrace with a small swimming pool .
It's unbelievably silent in such a noisy city as Delhi...it has a great spa , including a place where you can do Pilates with machines, a huge swimming pool and tennis court ,apart from the usual
spa facilities with high level professionals..The beauty parlor is very good as well.When you get back after an exhausting day going around the city it's a joy to be back !!
It has two very good restaurants and a splendid room service...a real oasis in busy Delhi!!!!

i wonder... are they losing it.. We stayed in almost all of the aman hotels. this one is not what you would expect. we had the largest suite with small pool on terrace.
its not cheap and the expectations are high. what shocked us the most
- it has not the Aman flair
-is just clean, but not the aman style
- yes its a city hotel, but where is the Aman feeling
- the staff, hmmm yes its ok.. but is ok Aman style?

aman you can do better. and if you dont improve this one- we wont be back again

Room Tip: welll, we had the largest suite and it was just ok..what can i say...

Hotel is impressive with your own bath and spacious rm but the bed needs improvement not comfortable to sleep! Bath needs to be pre-warmed so it takes 6hrs but overall it was excellent esp service. With its own art gallery
