“Can't fault the Leela Palace”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

I stayed here with my husband for a week in January and had a wonderful time from start to finish. The room, a junior suite, was beautiful, very spacious and perfect for our needs with every possible amenity. The bathroom was the last word in luxury, the bed as good as at home (I have NEVER written that before!) and it was great to have the ipod dock and film library on tap for those jet lagged nights. I also loved the artwork in the room, nothing mass produced here.
We ate in Qube and Jamavar, both superb. The only reason we didn't eat in the French/Italian or Japanese restaurants is that we have a lot of both at home. The rooftop pool is spectacular, the spa offers an enormous range of glorious treatments and the gym is well-appointed.
Service throughout our stay was attentive without being overbearing, striking just the right note, and we had the very best of help from the concierge, Saurabh (apologies to him if I have misspelled his name), who arranged our trip to Agra with one of the hotel drivers, transfers to the airport for a trip to Amritsar, and gave us excellent advice on shopping.

Room Tip: Look on the Leela's own website for the junior suites, which aren't listed with the big onli...

Very clean, very large room, very elegant, with spectacular service. This hotel is a bit newer and perhaps more modern feeling and less traditional than the Oberoi, which still attracts the more traditional high-end crowd. All-in all, a great place to stay.

To enter the Leela Palace you must pass through a large gate and security men clothed in black that look like Indian ninjas. Upon entering the hotel, you're greeted with a flower lei and red dye to your forehead. The interior is amazing. Super high ceilings, chandeliers, comfortable seating, etc. Our room included so many goodies – a bowl of fresh fruit, a plate of cookies, a plate of chocolates, tea/coffee service (Newby brand teas), Penhaligons Quercus brand soaps, four bottles of water, even a pillow menu! The rugs, marble accessories, and large closet were all spectacular. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was the most amazing breakfast I've ever had at a hotel. It included an unbelievable amount of western and Indian choices, both hot and cold. The room they serve breakfast in is also beautiful. It faces a lovely garden. The staff from the restaurant to the front desk were really warm and made us feel like valued guests.

Amazing hotel. Beautifully decorated and the staff really are first class . Bit of a confusion with the reception staff which caused some issues but really this is the best place to stay in Delhi. Perfect to get over the hectic pace of the city.
Amazing hotel but the waiting staff really made this place for me. Top class service and tips!! A++++++

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. The service was excellent. I fell sick during travel and we had to postpone our flight and find a place to stay in Delhi. This hotel is close to the international airport. We checked-in late at night and they offered to take my prescription and delivered the medicines to our room as soon as the shops opened in the morning.

The lobby is beautifully decorated and they offer a traditional Indian welcome :)
I want to go there again when I am not sick and enjoy all the luxuries they have to offer :).

Situated in a leafy posh district in centre of Delhi, most markets are a short taxi drive away.
The Hotel is lovely, from the lavish lobby, spacious rooms and beautiful floral arangements placed throughout the hotel.
The bed is comfortable with beautiful linen, an ipod to control lights/tv, and a bathroom that you will have to find excuses for to stay in there longer!
Breakfast in the 'Cube' restaraunt was nice, however one small issue was that we had completed our meal when the chef visited our table to suggest his specialty. It was too late as we were totally full by then.
Expensive and beautiful, Nice for couples, boring for kids.
