We only stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as it was the first destination of our 8 week round the world honeymoon.

We found the hotel to be very good, nice size rooms, beautiful decor and very good restaurants. The staff were friendly and polite.

I would recommend this hotel

Paid more for a single night than I've paid in my life before.
With dinner and breakfast it was around $600US!!
But the service was perfect and the food amazing. The pool's pretty good too.
However I have to say that for the money I would expect fellating on arrival and a slightly posher pool. Also the exterior looks like a 1950's council block.
Having said that it was certainly one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in and if you want a nice night in a plush hotel after backpacking around India for a couple of weeks I thoroughly recommend it if you've got the cash.
Breakfast was the best aspect. An amazing buffet and international stuff that normally we'd turn our noses up due to the environment, local economy etc, but on this occasion we decided balls to it.
Unfortunately if you want a posh place to stay in Delhi to finish of your holiday your options are limited.
If you're there on business then go for it. Price is the only thing against.

The New Delhi Oberoi is fine, you won't have any regrets staying here, but you won't remember it as a particularly special hotel either. It's a fairly typical 1960s building with a shopping arcade attached to the lobby, smallish rooms, decent service. We found the restaurants very busy, and so a little slow. The food was good. The gym is pretty good. All in all you might as well be in Manhattan, and maybe that's the point. Internet service is slow.

Great service, the staff is amazing , will take care of everything- Top rate. The room is nice and the decor is classy. The restaurant was great, food was really delicious and the design of the restaurant was striking. The hotel and restaurants are very happening at night with a up-market clientele . Definitely the place to be and be seen. The hotel is in a great location away from a lot of noise. Quiet with a nice garden and pool area.
Would definitely recommend when staying in New Delhi.

I was participating in a large training programme at this hotel and stayed here for 2 nights. It seemed a little strange for the hotel to be right next to a flyover! However, having once entered the hotel, I was quite at peace. It has all the comforts of a business hotel without being in your face. The staff is efficient and friendly but not over friendly. I did have a few issues with my room but it was handled quickly and efficiently. The chinese restaurant is quite nice and they used to have a nice deli. It is not right in the city centre- bit of a cab ride really- so you might not be able to stumble home from the bars!

Thoroughly recommended as a business hotel. Great service, good restaurants and very comfortable rooms. Oberoi have clearly invested heavily in the property, in particular the new outside pool area.

Would definitely consider this to be one of New Delhi's best hotels (after the Imperial).

  • Liked — Comfortable large rooms
  • Disliked — Slightly restricted by the original 1970s design and the entrance adjacent to a flyover.
