I stayed at the Radisson Blu for three nights recently on a business trip. I chose it because it was relatively central and also close by to the main tourist sites for when I had an hour or two spare.
My first impressions were not great, as the first entrance to the hotel is a small, shabby room with a bag scanner in it, but that isn't representative of the whole hotel. The rest of the hotel is clean and classily minimalist and a great use of space in a colonial heritage building.
The room was well proportioned and clean. I found the bed remarkably comfortable and didn't hear a noise during my whole stay. The complementary wifi was relatively quick and a nice touch.
Breakfast was average, so on my second night after a long day I thought long and hard about eating in the restaurant. I was simply too tired to leave so I went into the Great Kebab Factory with low expectations. However, this was the best meal I had in Delhi and if you stay here you must try it. The food, ambiance and service was top notch - a real highlight of the trip. I also had lunch at the restaurant on the first floor which was also very high quality.
If you do stay here be aware of touts from a nearby travel company called India For You, across the street. I booked a car with them and regretted it - it was a massive rip off for the service they provided.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Delhi.
