“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I stayed in April after a trip to Chennai, stayed for 5 days was delighted by both the service and the room. I was on the 3rd floor and the rooom was huge.

I was made to feel very welcome and the service at the front desk, bar and dining room was excellent.

The dining room and bar are small but feel very much in keeping with the surroundings and being out of the city centre suited me. The metro nearby allowed me to get into the centre avoiding the traffic when I needed to.

I look forward to returning again and would recommend the hotel

Delhi is one of those places where there are a lot of cheap hotels and a lot of nice hotels. And the nice hotels don't come cheap. The Maidens seems to be placed nicely in between and towards the nice side.
The staff are excellent and helpful. The food is good. The property itself is very charming as it is an old colonial style building.
I've stayed twice with groups that I've brought to India on meditation retreats and it was very fitting for us as it was quiet and uplifting. The first stay we were upgraded to the rooms upstairs that were very nice (2009). On the second visit in 2011 we stayed in the rooms downstairs and I was a little disappointed. For the money, the rooms felt tired and the bathroom could certainly use an upgrade. It was clean but well passed its date. Everything was very old and not in a good way.
I'd recommend the hotel for sure and will use it again (and plan to next year) but will certainly spend that little extra and get an upgrade.

Stayed October 2011, traveled with friends

This property evokes a by-gone era where rooms are large and spacious, grounds are lush and opulent and service is the main reason for existence. The location isn't great if you're after night life but we were so tired after our international flight we didn't care. The bathroom was HUGE and the toiletries provided were extremely welcome.

We were pleasantly surprised by the staff who went out of their way to accommodate our needs. I wanted just a small amount of cold milk with which to make a cup of tea in our room and they couldn't have been more helpful. In other hotels we stayed at during our trip to India this request was either too hard or we had to pay.

The buffet breakfast was good and dinner even better. The main restaurant doesn't open until 7:30pm but the staff could see we were hungry (and tired) and suggested dining in the breakfast room with the restaurant menu which was delicious.

Overall a great place in which to kick start a tour of this amazing country!

First experience of a hotel in India, the room the first night was really comfortable and could not fault it, on the last day when we returned we were put on the 3rd floor and this completely surpassed our expectations - it was a suite and was enormous! The hotel staff were extremely friendly and the service excellent, the food was very enjoyable, could just imagine this hotel in days gone by.

We were in India to visit family/friends and stayed in this hotel for almost two weeks. We were impressed by this property and the personalized service provided by the hotel staff. Consistency of the service and the customer centric approach shown by every single staff was amazing. Our 10 months baby was sick for couple of days, the help we received from front desk staff and on call doctor was highly appreciated. The general manager himself stopped by to check on her health which showed their attention to every customer.

Rooms are clean and of good size (we liked the hardwood floor in the bedroom). Bathroom is big and amenities are maintained well. Property has a swimming pool but we did not get to use it. Room service and front desk is very responsive and our requests were attended to immediately. Metro station is walking distance and saved us from Delhi traffic couple of times. Couple of smaller issues to note is the high charge for internet (almost $20 for a day) and lack of choices in food; hotel's restaurants are good but there are not many places you can find outside the hotel.

Overall, we were glad that we found this hotel and will be staying here on our subsequent trips.

We arrived to Maiden's after a stressful morning of travelling and couldn't have asked for anything more. When checking in, we were told that they upgraded us to a delux suite which was just amazing. The room (or should I say rooms) felt really peaceful and were spotless. After travelling for a good couple of months, this was just a delight to walk in to!
The service was friendly and very professional. The food was really lovely - some of the best western food I'd had in India and the pool area was super relaxing. The grounds are also lovely and green and really well kept. Maiden's is in Old Delhi, but a little out of all the hustle and bustle. We liked this location, as it's still easy to get to everything, but you can step back and take a break when you need to.
Thanks for making our last few days in India so relaxed and enjoyable! We didn't have to worry about a thing.

We were (happily) upgraded to a lovely modern room on the first floor. The hotel is a lovely old building in a good location - the bad news was a film company thought so too, and was filming while we were there. It was fun watching them film, although it would've been nice to have been warned we'd be awakened by scaffold-building for camera crews at 7am! The upgraded rooms are the nicest, although I agree with other commenters that both the bar and the restaurant are tiny and feel a little stifling. We also had issues with the wifi, although the hotel was quick to work with us to resolution. Still, it was a lovely stay in a lovely room and we can see that as renovations continue in the hotel, it will be a stunning place to stay when it's complete.

Room Tip: Definitely request a modernized room.
