“The Grandeur and ambieance of the ASHOKA -New Delhi”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The memories that are still live in my mind of my last visit to the sprawling property of THE ASHOKA-New Delhi is the grandeur & magnificence of the Architecture.

What I liked is that they have kept the charm of the government cadre still alive & impeccable in spirit. You go there to soak in the slow pace & smell the flowers-which in today's world is like a therapy. The courteous staff, the most admired demeanor of the serving personnel won my heart.
The rooms were immaculate , spic n span , rather made me feel absolutely relaxed-truly a royal experience.The spa like experience rejuvenated me & revived my senses-great experience.cheers

I visited this hotel & had dinner in Frontier restaurant, & I must say that food was really very awesome, especially the dal makhani. There are couple of more restaurants available in the hotel like Darbar, Coffee shop, F bar & all of them were having really very nice interiors. I also requested the reception staff to show me some rooms, & I must say that they had newly renovated rooms which are very spacious & comfortable to stay.

Will recommend this hotel to my friends when they will visit Delhi next time.

Needless to say that the rooms and facility are excellent. But most of all there is so much staff that cares fro you at any time that you Forget about having to organise your own life - all is thought of and for you in advance. Excellent and very nice staff - discreet but most friendly
It was the best. Cleanliness and customer service was excellent. We splashed out at Amatra Pool and also took a massage, GYM was outstanding and we also dined in at the Oudh restaurant, it is worth it. last bt not the least .....the interiors are very well worked out. Bingo!

I spent three nights at the Ashok in conjunction with a conference being held there. I was aware that the hotel was old and had a heritage of government management, so was ready for some disappointment.

First the good bits: The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. The lobby and conference centre are modern and impressive. Some of the restaurants are very good - notably The Oudh and Sagar Ratna. The spa is excellent, though it is unrelated to the hotel and you can't put the charges on your hotel bill. The hotel is not expensive.

However, the good bits were offset by a number of faults. In the room, small things like bathrobes are missing. The minibar holds only water, and there are just four clothes hangers in the closet. (Trivial, I know, but these things matter when you're there for several days.) Delivery of clean towels was random, and the shower was cold more often than not. The big surprise, though, was that the lights kept coming on in the middle of the night, startling me awake. I put it down to the fact that they are on dimmer switches, not on/off switches, and Delhi's frequent brief power cuts probably resets them to high. Doesn't make for a restful night.

Apart from the lobby and conference centre, the public areas of the hotel are dated and not totally clean. The lifts should have been retired - or at least recarpeted - twenty years ago.

But the biggest disappointment was the service. I have experienced very, very good service in a number of hotels in Delhi. The Ashok is staffed by people who seem to resent being there. They seldom smile, and their body language says that you aren't a customer but a nuisance. In the coffee shop, used dishes and cutlery were not cleared away promptly, and food debris on the floor was not swept up. The travel consultant, who arranges taxis, could barely be bothered to look up from his phone when I approached. A number of the desk staff were surly and abrupt.

There are always exceptions to the rule, and there were some lovely staff at the Ashok. But overall, it would be helpful if they could be sent to the same training course the staff at the Taj and ITC hotels go to.

Had to spend a night in Delhi between flights and against all advice from friends booked my self at the The ASHOK. On Cheek in they could not trace my booking made on net, since I had a print out of my booking confermation I was dispatched to my room till they traced my booking. Good room though of old model by todays standards but clean and everything Works ( to my surprise) About service what takes at least half an hour in other 5 star hotels took 5 minutes at the Ashok. Not once but every time (weather it was housekeeping or other services like water or Ice etc etc.Room amminites are excellent. Staff is polite and very healpful. Most of the room service staff are older people so younger guests may feel odd asking for service from older people, being a Sr. citizen myself I had no such problem. Food is albit expencive for the quality. On the whole a pleasent stay and highly recomended..
