“Large room good restaurant”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

I am sure there are nice places in Delhi but what I saw during my business trip was hot, dirty and noisy. So my hotel room was an oasis. AC was adjustable and quiet, internet connection (at extra cost) just working and room large enough to be used not only as bedroom but as an office too.

The hotel is wondeful and fantastic in terms of its huge space and ambience.

The rooms were palatial in size and interiors. The room I stayed in faced the wide and well built popular road of Delhi. And the adjoining Khan market made the stay interesting for a shopperholic like me; since, travelling alone for business is boring most of the times.

I just loved the hospitality and have never experienced such incredible service before.

You get a fabulous worth of your money in this hotel.

If, as seems inevitable, you're landed with paying extortionate prices for Delhi hotel rooms, you may as well go for the period charms of the Ambassador. Lovely ambience and location. Solicitous staff. Bedrooms furnished in a tastefully understated manner. Here are some suggestions for improvements:
1. Beds are a bit military in their springing. Something a little bit more luxurious would be appreciated. And pillows with a natural filling really should be the default in a hotel of this standard.
2. When every bedroom overlooking the centre court enjoys the luxury of a balcony, why not make more of it? Put a couple of chairs out on them, perhaps?
3. The public areas are not used as well as they could be. The 'Yellow Brick Road' really doesn't make the grade as a coffee shop in a hotel of this status. With its hard chairs, lighting and surfaces, it enjoys all the ambience of a works canteen. Escape from its noise into the softer surroundings of the bar and you're assailed by a Philippino karaoke duo. Please, a little bit of quiet. And the only smart restaurant in the hotel is Chinese. Am I missing something here? Why do I want to eat Chinese food in India?

Poor hotel which needs an urgent renovation. Baware that "balcony" does not mean "nice view". My room was in front of the Air Con system of the hotel, ugly view but also extremly noisy nights and days.
But the WORST.....If you like to be bothered during your night by MOUSES running into the air conditionning system of your room then you'll be delighted (I mention MOUSES because I've SEEN them into the grill of my Air Con in my room...).. Insane!

The Ambassador is a charming hotel with a soul. Excellent service from check in to check out, clean and spacious rooms and bathroom. Khan market is in walking distance. Draw back: Small breakfast room and limited selection of food for breakfast. High cost for internet access: 662 IR for 24 hrs. The Ambassador would be my first choice for New Delhi except for the small breakfast room and the very limited selection of breakfst choices.

Was here for a week of business at the beginning of July and as I am here in Delhi again for another week I booked again at the Ambassador as I had such a pleasant stay my first go around. I will be coming back to Delhi several times over the coming months and I fully intend to stay here.

The room themselves are excellent- clean and spacious with great work space (important since I spend a great deal of time working at my computer from my hotel room). Service in the hotel is great as they have a very polite, efficient and helpful staff. They can almost be too helpful at times and I've taken to leaving the "Do not disturb" light on to avoid the seemingly incessent knocks at my door asking if I need anything.

The food is also excellent in all 3 restaurants as well as from room service. Only criticism I really have is for the lounge- InSomnia. It could be a great place to relax, if the music weren't so bad- apparently he feels that at the end of a business day a lone business traveller wants to listen to heart-jarring disco beats...

Overall great hotel- terrible DJ.

I stayed at Ambassador quite a few times in the past, but this time it wasnt really the same. No dont get me wrong, it was largely because of the metro construction close by that the approach to the hotel became quite a pain.

Anyways, i did spent three days in the hotel and the place - once you get inside - has its own quiet charm. The rooms are pretty spacious and I did like the fact that they still have the old kind of balconies in the room where you can go out and stand.

The restaurant - Yellow brick stone is quite a hit both for the in-guests and outsiders. It surely has a nice warm feel to it and the menu card in the form of a newspaper was very pretty. The pub is mostly deserted and i didnt find much crowd there and you do feel a bit silly sitting all by yourself in a pub - although the interior and the decor is done quite well. But there is a bit of an old legacy feel to the hotel - in the way its constructed, in the way you see the interiors and also the way you get treated. Room service was pretty good as is the case with most Taj hotels.

Overall a pretty good stay at the hotel and i do hope that the metro construction finishes soon so that the approach to the hotel becomes as smooth as it used to be in the past.

  • Liked — Spacious rooms, Restaurant and food
  • Disliked — Approach to the place, not buzzing with much action - pretty dull.
