Stayed for a week at this hotel on a business trip to the older part of Delhi. Technically, the hotel is in Old Delhi and not New Delhi :-)
I read it in some magazine not so long ago that the hotel served as the working residence for Mr.Lutyens - the architect of New Delhi. He used the building as an office - residence from where he designed the "new" capital of India.
Note that most of the cab drivers do NOT know of this hotel. I had to explain to many of them as the hotel near "ISBT" and they would still be lost - but in India, while the GPRS does not work, road passerby's are always ready to help.
From a tourist point of view, the hotel is close to most of Delhi's old attractions: Red Fort, Chandni Chowk etc but not to the new ones eg: Connaught.
The reception and bar/restaurant is full of monochrome framed photographs and dark mahagony furniture which gives a historic feel. The white facade of the building is superb and looks serene when lit @ night.
The breakfast is limited (must try chocolate croissants) but delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to go the distance to accomodate most requests.
My standard room was huge. It had a separate a living area and the bedroom with very high ceilings. The bath, though very clean, was a bit dated and surely needs some maintenance. The food is superb though slighly on the expensive side.
The hotel itself is located on a huge grounds, with expansive lawns and a swimming pool with a very 70's bridge over it! But the hotel is a superb retreat from the noise of Delhi city.
