We travelled with our child and his Grand parents for a five day vacation and stayed at this vintage hotel. Hotel is conveniently located and is minutes away from most places one would want to visit. Proximity to the Khan Market is a plus so is the Metro system which we did not quite use.

Best part of course is the quality of service coupled with the classical style of accommodations. We felt we were in deed at home away from home. The service is prompt, courteous and unobtrusive. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable almost to the point of being pampered.

Food is great while served in the room or in the restaurants down stairs. Breakfast is pretty much the standard fare served in a small but cozy room. Don't just pick up what you see and walk away from the buffet. Ask for their crispy Onion Dosa or Soft Aloo Paratha or anything else you may want to sample.

You would find the same smiling faces day after day and by day two you would think that you are in a small Bed and Breakfast place run by a family - not another mega Hotel run as an assembly line.

Rooms were large (at least on the fourth floor) and full of "character" and charm - not code for being broken down and needing repair - just old but well maintained. Fortunately, they seemed to have finished their renovation work and we had no issues with noise either from inside or from the
road.

We used the Cab (Toyota Innova Van) from the Hotel extensively. While certainly pricier than typical service if obtained directly form an outside vendor - we liked the flexibility of schedule and the safety of engaging people you can trust which is important especially in Delhi these days. Our drivers (Sher Singh and Jagdish - who BTW are brothers!) were courteous and efficient without being too chatty and intrusive and had good knowledge of the city traffic and the places we visited - almost acting as guides when asked.

Finally, answer to the question of - Would we ever go back there again? Yes, absolutely.

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the fourth floor which are large and unaltered from their original size and plan for...

I was pleasantly surprised when on request, i got an upgrade to a suite, since we were three of us as a family. Excellent decor inside, though the outside view of the hotel is not so great. Good food and service. This place is located at a walkable distance from the prestigious Taj Mansingh Hotel.Value for money hotel , located near thecentral secretariat region of new delhi. Airport ( terminal 1) is not far, it is about 15 kms.One can take a fresh morning walkinside the Lodhi Gardens which is a ten minute walk from the hotel. There is an upmarket shopping arcade next to the hotel which is popularly called Khan market, where one can do quick shopping . the metro station of Khan market is just a minute walk from the hotel on humayun road from where one reach any corner of delhi. But the metro is quite crowded. This is the locality where the wealthy rich and central ministers and top ranking officals of India stay.

Room Tip: If you are travelling on a week end pls request for a complimentary room upgrade. If you are lucky...

This hotel is outstanding.
It excels in service,hospitality,food and rooms.
The staff at this hotel from front desk to the General manager go out of there way to ensure a first class experience.
The hotel is situated 100 metres from Khan market,the rooms are double the size of a standard hotel room and they have large balconies.I can't speak to highly of this hotel!!

I dont agree with most of the other reviewers and I don't know if I just got a very bad deal but when I pay over $200/night for a hotel room and I pay "luxury taxes" for everything I expect a bit of luxury. It keeps saying "old world charm" if that means old wooden furniture and smelly carpets thats correct. I spent 10 days here partly for a conference and partly for a holiday and my bill was well over $2200. Ouch! This is New Delhi- not New York!! The pluses are the hotel is in a good location and the staff are helpful. Having said that the internet service that they charge exorbitant fees for doesn't work- so if you stay here for business, watch out.
I wont stay here again and I wouldn't recommend it.

Room Tip: Dont stay here

The title says it all really. Particular highlights are the quality of the reception and bar staff, the informal restaurant and size of the rooms.

The Khan market (a collection of shops rather than a market proper) next door is a good place to spend an easy hour or so browsing.
