"THE" HOTEL IN DELHI

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2014


The Maidens is THE hotel to stay in Delhi for several very good reasons. After the Mutiny of 1857 the British moved out of the original walled city of Old Delhi, north to this area they named Civil Lines. Maidens was finished in 1903 in time for the ‘Durbar’, the 2 week festival to honour the coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra as Emperor and Empress of India. Sir Edwin Lutyens, the architect of New Delhi lived in the hotel whilst his designs came to life. Today you can stay in some of the original rooms (recommended) and see the grandeur of Colonial India. The older rooms are massive and comfortable. The oldest parts are a little musty smelling, such is a building of this age in the tropics.

My room was so large I could have played team sports in the bedroom. It was not the best decorated room in the world, but it had everything I needed and more space than necessary. The bathroom was modern and the toiletries were excellent. The staff were very professional and attentive and the bar was very art deco. This is a wonderful hotel. I enjoyed lying out in the sun and swimming in the large outdoor pool set amongst the beautifully manicured gardens. At night the hotel is completely quiet and the beds are very good. A great stay in a historical setting. It is also a walkable distance to the Red Fort and to the new Metro to get to and from the airport. In fact, it is less than half the time to use the metro than a taxi in the completely bonkers traffic.

Please note: Heritage rooms are the older ones, but are larger and cheaper. Overall a great historical stay and a good nights sleep. Highly recommended by me!

Great Hotel - Great Value

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Maidens Hotel has been a heritage hotel since 1903. It was built during the time of the British Raj and has been well maintained and retains its original charm. I found the service at the front desk excellent; although they do not provide safes in rooms they are scrupulously honest and hold guests valuables in sealed envelopes in their main safe. Front desk staff were always helpful and answered questions regarding transportation, city monuments and were always ready to break down large rupee notes for smaller ones. The hotel gets tourists groups from the U.K. and Australia, but these large groups did not detract from the friendly, efficient service in the coffee shop. One may also eat outside on the patio. Food in the main restaurant is elegantly presented. The reception area is pleasant with fresh floral displays and comfortable seating. I paid $86 a night (through Continental Airlines).

Unique Quality: My room was on two levels which gave it a unique charm and the window overlooked the gardens (I am told that some rooms can be dark), but mine was light, comfortably furnished, very clean, had an efficient air conditioner, and a marble, modern bathroom. There was a TV in the room. The location of this hotel was particularly pleasing to me it is north of Old Delhi, and away from the hustle and bustle of the main areas. The hotel is set in lovely gardens with a well maintained, clean swimming pool. Internet service is available for approximately $5 US an hour. Even though this hotel is a little further out, I would highly recommend staying there. I thought that it was excellent value for the service I received.
