“Convenient location. Decent rooms. That's about it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2011

Stayed here for one night in Sept 2011 for work. It's a company-approved hotel for short stays and so I had little choice. This property is fine if you are not spending too much time in the hotel. Right on the main road.

The room was fine - in room coffee and tea maker, comfortable bed, LCD TV with cable, etc. but the bathroom was a bit run down. This is one of the older of the Parkland properties (stayed in the one near Gurgaon and that was very smart in comparison) so the bathroom is old. And there was no hot water in the evening so I asked why and they said 'the boiler was not on.' In this day and age, I think running hot water should be a given.

I didn't sample their food or breakfast so can't comment on that. The restaurant is part of the lobby area and looked adequate for this quality.

Would only stay there again if I had to because of work.

the location is very well suited in case you have work on the south Delhi side. The service is good and cleaneliness decent.

the people are very cooperative and friendly.
the service in the restaurant could have better.

Good nice hotel in Defence colony, location is right on the main ring road, the rooms are clean and spacious, we stayed in the suite room and i quite liked the extra space, room was very tidy and staff helpfuf. We also liked the quality of food served in the lobby resaurent however feel that the buffet dineer prices were high and could be lowered. overall a good experience and would certainly return back.

"Delhi Hotel Parkland Defence Colony is one of the most luxurious hotels of the Parkland Hotels Group in India" - so states their website. And yes, at best it is a high-end budget hotel [upon surface appearances]. However, we have stayed at other hotels for less and in comparison it doesn't measure up.
Stayed at this hotel early Jan 11 and left feeling more stressed than when i arrived.
Unfortunately the negatives outweighed the positives.
On the plus side, the water pressure was really good and we did have hot showers.
Food in the restaurant was good although we only had one pasta dish.
Road noise wasn't too bad given that the hotel is actually situated on a busy main road. But that could just be because of the location of the room rather than there being any actual noise insulation.
However, as said, there were far too many negatives as follows:
First of all the room we were given stank of smoke [not acceptable by any standards] and then had to wait 2.5hrs for any kind of resolution [again not acceptable] which meant this was most of our day wasted.
Room was filthy with at least an inch thick layer of dust on the surfaces. Indicated that the room had not been cleaned despite the toilet having the paper band on saying it had been.
Was woken up around 6am by house-keeping staff who somehow felt the need to shout and bang around. I asked twice for the noise to be kept down however, to no avail.
Bathroom also smelt as there is no ventilation as such.
Bed was hard as - impossible to get comfortable and woke up really sore, in addition to the rude awakening at 6am.
Ducted airconditioning/heating which in the summer would be a plus. However, i think this also added to the smell of smoke which may have come from other rooms. Also, the room was colder with the supposed heating on than when we switched it off.
Overall not the experience i had hoped for but having said that - i think that could be said for the whole of Delhi and relatively this hotel is just another bad experience within the bigger picture.

The loaction was by side of one on main highways - nowhere to go for walk. Room great - complimentary safe and good TV. Bathroom smelt as not aired. Had room service and the best curry I have eaten in my life (and there has been a few!)
