“Excellent property!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I stayed in this hotel briefly as my flight was delayed and very much enjoyed the experience. The building was kept in an immaculate condition and rooms and bathrooms super luxurious. The Spa was one of the finest I have seen and service phenomenal! The only point I would mention would be to make the breakfast more appetising and morning dinning experience more refined. The Xmas decorations were also a little over the top...

A beautiful room-spacious, luxurious bathroom and a delightful place to stay for a couple of days. Everything was beautifully presented and the breakfasts we enjoyed at this hotel were delicious!If you stay here don't forget to relax by the roof-top pool after a fascinating day site-seeing!

If you stay at this hotel you do so with indulgence in mind. Nothing is out of the question. The lobby is breathtaking. The rooms are exquisite, especially if you opt to get a view of the garden. The lounge floors give you access to the members quarters which is an experience of its own. Transportation can be easily arranged by many of its car services, pick up and drop off to the airport are included which proves to be very convenient when you're in a hurry.

Room Tip: Opt for room package that gives you access to the members lounge. Rooms located on either the 8th or...

Amazing hotel in the heart of New Delhi's quiet embassy area. Incredible service - staff are extremely courteous and respectful and always willing to help. The hotel is very new (built within the last few years) so the rooms and common areas are in excellent condition. The traditional Indian welcome by reception was a very nice touch. For the price paid this hotel is an absolute steal for true 5-star service and impeccable luxury. There are three different restaurants all serving different cuisines so the food choices are plentiful and the waiter service is top notch. The area is very quiet at night as all of the embassies close down so no issues with traffic noise, but it is also far away from the 24-hour liveliness and excitement that is New Delhi so make sure you know what you want to experience. The rooftop infinity pool is nice but plagued by pigeons (feathers and poop can be in the water though the staff does a great job of keeping it clean). The view from the top is great (though visibility is very limited thanks to the smog).

The Leela Palace is a superb hotel and extremely good value for a genuine 5* hotel.

From the greeting on arrival and the 'in room' check in to the F&B and concierge, the hotel is impeccable. All of the staff we dealt with during our four night stay were genuine, pleased to help and went that little bit further than necessary.

The rooms are very well appointed with particularly large and nice bathrooms. The pillow 'menu' with the choice of nine different speciality pillows to choose from says it all.

From a location perspective, the Leela is well situated in Delhi making it easy to get around town. The only slight downside was the lack of a view. We were on the seventh floor and had requested a 'city' view, which they were happy to inform us we had been granted. However, there really isn't much to see, not that the hotel can change this...

On the F&B front we were impressed with all of our experiences. The breakfast restaurant is impressive and the food very good indeed. The Indian restaurant was also good, while the Library Bar is an excellent place to relax with friends.

We would highly recommend this hotel for a short visit to Delhi.

It was our first night in India arriving in quite late, we were welcomed by the lovely staff at Leela Palace, the flower display and the lobby decorations were like nothing I have ever seen and as it was my first visit to India I felt as though this was really the perfect place for us to start what turned out to be an amazing adventure trip. When we were escorted to the room it was incredible, the walls decorated with beautiful gold embroidery and the four poster bed was covered in the most luxury silk pillows I have had the pleasure to have at a hotel. It was incredible. I was exceptionally happy with the stay. The weather was a bit cool so I unfortunately did not get the opportunity to use the roof top pool but did enjoy the view of New Delhi.
