“International Luxury”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

This is a modern hotel that meets every expectation of an international luxury property. It is situated in a relatively quiet area so a taxi is necessary to get out to other parts of Delhi.

On arrival we were greated warmly and taken to our room to check in. The public areas of the hotel are truly stunning with mirrors, flowers and sumptuous furnishings creating a sense of total luxury. Our room was extremely well furnished and very comfortable: the overall standard of finishing was much higher than anything we had experienced anywhere else in India.

The hotel grounds are small so the roof top swimming pool and surrounding deck provides a much needed feeling of space. Service was to a very high standard throughout the hotel.

We were busy touring so only managed to eat in the coffee shop however the food and servcie were of a very high standard.

This hotel delivers everything one would expect from a deluxe international luxury hotel. Why therefore do they need to charge an inconsequential fee for Wi-Fi access!

Room Tip: Even the basic rooms are extremely good

This place did not disappoint! Truly exceptional! The service was first rate, the room was stunning, the treatments at the spa were fantastic, and, best of all was the food! Amazing breakfast of anything you can imagine was included. The Japanese restaurant was worthy of all it's awards as it was phenomenal, I wanted to eat everything! The Indian restaurant set a new high in standards and was the best Indian food I have had in 2 trips to India.

I've stayed in many hotels in New Delhi and my stay at Leela Palace was nearly the best. Smooth airport pickup, lobby filled with gorgeous and fragrant flower arrangements, check-in in my room, absolutely "old world charm" in a hotel that is just a few years old. Had a midnight salad and pizza in the Cube and I must admit that the pizza was so good that I was surprised. Morning breakfast was very sumptuous and very tasty. I had morning meetings and returned at noon. As I had not worked out in the morning I was told that they would give me a late checkout. The Fitness and Spa is absolutely wonderful. In all it was well worth staying at the Leela Palace and I will stay there again. The cordial smiles and relaxed posh nature was welcome. Also, my bathroom was a palace in it's self .. and all the lighting in the rooms are all "touch sensor control."

Room Tip: Can't give a tip ... I'd think they would all be excellent

I've never been to any hotel that made me feel so classy and like a sir. Breakfast spread was super awesome and room was well kept with high tech stuff which made me want to be a perm guest there. Great job guys. I will definitely come and visit whenever I go to New Delhi. Just that it's a bit on the pricier side but other that that I felt pretty awesome staying there.

This Leela in Dehli is a nice and safe place to stay. Perfect service/ rooms and good restaurants. The breakfast buffet at Cube is rich and tasty. Only the coffee need some improvements... Unfortunately the hotel is quite far away from everything interesting but so and a driver/ guide is required to go around. I can recommend this hotel!

Anyone traveling through India knows there is a huge difference between 4 star and 5 star hotels, let alone the other stars. This hotel could be rated 6 stars. The hotel is of course beautiful and run exceptionally well but it's the feeling you get when you are there that made it for us. The staff made one mistake the whole time we were there and they corrected it well beyond what any other hotel would have done. We travel internationally a lot for both business and pleasure and we have to tell everyone this is the hotel you want to stay at in Delhi, period.

Room Tip: Every room that we and our friends had were great.
