“A fine hotel but not as good as other Oberoi hotels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2009

Spent 3 nights here with my family and we were more than happy with the luxury rooms and the facilties. The hotel had a great buzz with many locals visiting the restaurants and cafe for lunch and dinner. The restaurants are excellent but very expensive. We avoided the Japanese restaurant for that reason. The staff are quite helpful but obviously tip driven. Check in and paying the bills were slow. Overall this hotel lacked the superb high standards of the Oberois in Agra, Jaipur and Ranthambore.

I have stayed a few times now at this Oberoi (on Dr. Zakir Hussain Marg) in New Delhi. The most recent being May 25-28, 2009. They were there to pick me up at the Airport (DEL) in a car and driver provided by Avis. Driver was courteous and a very careful driver. My room was ready, clean, internet ready and complimentary, with roses, fruits, chocolates in a room that overlooked the Delhi Golf Course (8th Floor). Food was great at the 360. Security was impressive with luggage and body scanners.
Staff bent out of their way to be helpful. In particular, the concierge, despite the lack of support from the local Lufthansa (LH) office, was able to help me redo my booking with a marathon series of phone calls. Net result was that I was able to leave DEL a day early albeit on Austrian (OS) as opposed to LH, which proved to be a blessing in disguise anyway.

The staff at this hotel are exceptionally courteous and are always at your service. The hotel has a beautiful poolside and the food is awesome. The breakfast spread is amazing with combination of both continental and traditional indian food. Even the simplest of the menu is made to perfection. Try the Dal Makhani and you would be transported to a different world. The rooms are spacious and well lit and the king size beds are far too comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel for any kind of visitor.

Very well organised and service focused hotel. Even though it gets a lot of business traffic there are a variety of restaurants and pools so that it is a good base for exploring Delhi. If you arrive on the early morning flight, just be careful if you think you will get a room early, on both occassions it was near 9 a.m. after arriving at 7 a.m. before the room was available but you can have breakfast etc. while you wait

One simply cannot go wrong with any of the Oberoi properties-they exceed even my picky standards of hotel hospitality, as a travel photojournalist. Luxurious public areas and rooms, superb food service, and top-notch hospitality by all staff concerned.
