In general this is a high quality hotel in New Delhi. The rooms are in keeping with the historic feel of the hotel yet provide the expected range of modern amenities. The hotel is located on busy streets and there is some street noise when outside or around the pool area. The breakfast is buffet and is of a very...

Visited this hotel after a while and was looking forward to this jewel in the heart of Lutyens delhi. This hotel still maintains its old world charm and food is spice route (the Thai Restraunt) is still as good as I can remember it. However the service needs to improve and that is why I would give it a 3.5/5...

This is a real gem hidden away in central Delhi. The place is absolutely fabulous! The whole Hotel has the scent of jasmine. The beds are heavenly soft - just what you will need after a day out in busy Delhi. The service is also top notch! Classic colonial luxury with a modern twist.

Always a pleasure to come to the iconic 1919 restaurant. The just right warmth of the late winter sun was splendid to have a lunch at the porch attached.

After a long flight, followed by a drive though chaotic Delhi traffic, the sight of two imposing gates into a walled enclave, does not fully prepare for what lies beyond. Multiple security checkpoints provide comfort to the apprehensive traveller. Once past the second checkpoint, a world of stately opulence embraces the weary traveller. The hotel is built in Art Deco...

Magnificent monument to the Raj. Captivating from the moment you arrive till the moment you (reluctantly) depart, knowing you'll never stay anywhere like this again unless you return here. Would have been an easy 5 stars except for the breakfast service ( hostesses charmless/unwelcoming, and service uneven/slow -- with this many waiters, it really shouldn't take 15 minutes to get...
