“Old fashioned India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2008

The Maidens is a lovely old-fashioned hotel. The rooms are large and very clean. The breakfast that came along with the room was ample although not terribly exciting. The hotel staff was very helpful and the backyard of the hotel often has a wedding going on which is quite fun to watch. You cannot walk anywhere from the hotel but taxis are easy to get and there is a subway stop somewhere not too faw away.

  • Disliked — In the cooler months you need more blankets!

A colonial hotel, a little frayed at the edges, near old Delhi. Huge rooms (without a view, but light enough) and even more huge dressing area and bathroom. Needed a lick of paint, but for character, service and charm, was absolutely fine.

Arrived late at night from UK - long transfer across Delhi to get to the hotel. The public areas are ok - but the rooms are very poor - no air conditioning - just a vent in the top of the ceiling. Our room smelt of damp and had cockroaches! Not a great welcome to India! Also most of the standard rooms have no windows - just a frosted window to the hallway.

We then had a series of hotel staff knocking at the door at 1am trying to show us round the room etc all wanting a tip! It is really annoying when all you want to do is shower, unpack and go to bed.

The breakfast room and food offering were below average and the staff were barely interested in helping.

We were really disappointed as we expected a smart colonial style hotel that would be clean and friendly. We were only in Delhi for 2 nights and out sightseeing during the days but dreaded returning to the hotel.

This really is nothing like the rest of the Oberoi hotels which are all amazing!

There's a lot to like about this hotel. We stayed in one of the suites (no smaller rooms were available), which was simply and attractively furnished and very spacious. There was a little noise from the road, but this is inevitable in Delhi.

The disappointments came with other features. Breakfast was notably poor - not enough seats in the small breakfast room, and the worst choice of food we had anywhere in India. The bar was also disappointing.

We visited some friends at the Imperial which seemed like a very impressive hotel all round, and I think we would stay there next time.

Stayed February 2007

We booked this hotel through a travel agent after selecting from the trip-advisor web page. The hotel made a nice change from the multi-storey variety and has the real feel of what an Indian hotel should be. The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff at the front desk really helpful.
The restaurant/coffee bar was no great shakes but adequate and there was a lovely swimming pool in the gardens.
As we had an early flight a superb continental breakfast was served in our room at 5am!! Highly recommended.

  • Liked — A real Indian Hotel not multi-storey chain.
  • Disliked — air conditioning centrally controlled had to ask to be turned on.
  • Tips/Secrets — Very convenient for Old Delhi

This was a lovely end to our stay in India. The hotel provided an excellent breakfast and had clean spacious rooms. The room was clean and had very comfortable beds. The hotel staff were very friendly and happy to engage in conversation.

I had to go to Delhi for a few days for a trade fair and chose the Maidens hotel as it seemed to be a decent 3-4 star hotel from whatever info I could find on the web. New Delhi hotels can be a pit pricey, and I had managed to get a good package deal here. The hotel upgraded me to a suite room for 1000 Rs. extra. While the suite was huge the furnishing was just about decent, nothing fancy. There was only one tv in the living room and you cant watch TV lying in bed. Also the windows of the rooms had frosted glass and hence it makes you feel more lonely esp. if you are travelling alone. Staff was friendly and cooperative. The hotels location is not great, but they arrnange for taxis instantly at the hotel. Food is also good, though theres not much too choose from at breakfast
