    Wonderful Hotel in the Embassy Area


    The best hotel we stayed at by far! Our group started our trip in Delhi and this was a great start. Lovely grounds, great lobby, wonderful food in the dining rooms and pretty rooms with nice views. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

    Unique Quality: Lovely rooms with many upscale appointments and amenities. Wifi throughout the property for a small fee and the rooms have direct computer inputs.

    Directions: In the Embassy area

    Taj Palace Hotel


    Unique Quality: One of Delhi's well known/ established hotels... It has over 450 rooms/ suites, including 2 presidential suites... some suites have their own private gardens.
    Its a fair bit more expensive than the avarage accomodation option in the city, but if you have the budget and want to pamper yourself a bit, its a good option.
    The restaurants within the hotel are pretty good too...

    Directions: In the Dhaula Kuan area, not far from the Maurya Sheraton hotel, not too far from the airport.

More about Taj Palace Hotel


by santoshkr

Delhi is noted for its Mughal cuisine, a direct legacy of the Mughal rule. A Central Asian nomadic cuisine of braised meats, kebabs, pilafs and breads using the clay oven (tandoor) evolved with the use of local spices and herbs into a rich range of dishes popularly known as Mughlai

Delhi has excellent restaurants that serve a range of cuisines from around India and abroad. Many of these are to be found in the hotels. Dum pukht at welcomgroup Maurya Sheraton has revived a delicately flavoured stem-cooked cuisine form Oudh. Bukhara at the same hotel is noted for its North West Frontier food as also the Frontier at the Ashok Hotel

Fine South Indian food ranging from dosas and idlis to chillihot Andhra curries and coconut based delicacies from Chettinad and Kerala can be sampled at Sagar, Dasaprakash, Sagar Ratna, Andhra Bhavan and Coconut Grove.

Western and continental cuisine served in restaurants known as much for their marvellous ambience and décor as their food, include the Orient Express at the Taj Palace Hotel, Pierre at the Le Meridien, Pickwick at the Claridges Hotel, and the Captain’s Table at Taj Mahal Hotel.

Fine Chinese and Thai food is found at several restaurants in the city including the exotic Spice Route at the Hotel Imperial, Baan Thai at the Oberoi, House of Ming at the Taj Mahal Hotel, Chinese Room at Nirulas and a host of others.

Fast food outlets like Wimpys, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Dominos and Nirulas are round around the city

A real luxrious Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Aashil

It is the best hotel i stayed in. The staff is too co-ordial and the gr8 thing about all the Taj in general is they take a personalised care about you. I went to Delhi for my competition and i was surprised that the staff also wished me before leaving for the venue. Spectacular rooms, nice srvice great ambience makes it all a wonderful experience.

Its Good!

by TripAdvisor Member expectant customer

Not bad at all!
No, its really quite good!

Reception is large, clean, modern and full of great staff, very helpful. They helped me find an obscure address in Delhi.

Room was very comfortable and quiet, I had a good nights sleep here. Bathroom was also good.
View out of the front was fine.

Swimming pool is OK, some areas like changing area are getting a bit shabby and need a tidy up, but otherwise OK.

Dinner and Breakfast was great, excellent buffet, lots of choice, good quality.

Yes, I would stay here again.

Great hotel, great service

by TripAdvisor Member rat_race_escapee

I spent ten days at this hotel- on a business trip. It was my first trip to India and I was pleasantly surprised to be met at the airport by a car from the hotel, with a drink and hand towel to freshen up with. The hotel is in the diplomatic enclave of the city, and is well situated. The staff were extremely helpful and solicitous, and often took care of my needs before I knew I had them. The room was a standard double, but well furnished and very clean. The steward offered me fresh fruit juice to drink as he took care of the check-in details for me.
There are several restaurants in the hotel, but my favourite was the Indian, which had a menu that went on for days. Again, the service was excellent.
Breakfast was served buffet style in the cafe, and chefs would cook almost anything you asked for. There was western style food (bacon and eggs) as well as Indian, plus an array of cereals, fruits, juices (fresh squeezed), etc.
From a business standpoint, the Business centre was well-manned and had everything necessary. It was located below the lobby, and was quiet.. The hotel also has a nice fitness centre (though I didn't use it) and a spa. I had two massages during my trip, both excellent- the Indian Traditional massage was extrememly relaxing, and the back/neck massage was just the thing after a long day in front of the computer. There is also a well stocked store in the hotel- with very nice quality shawls, jewelry, ties, books and other items you might need to take home to your family. Again, great service. There is a nice terrace outside, as well as a pool, which I did not use.
I was very happy with my stay in this hotel. If I were to criticise anything, it would be the air conditioning, which I found a bit too cold. However, you can turn it off in your room in the evenings, so it was fairly comfortable in any case. That is a minor detail, though, and not enough to really complain about.
Overall, the hotel is a nice, traditional large hotel that gives you a healthy dose of Indian hospitality.

Loved the Taj Palace

by TripAdvisor Member reli01

Right from the word go it was perfect. On arrival at Delhi international airport I was met and assisted by Taj staff who escorted me to the spankingly new Toyota. The hotel provides complimentary airport transfers to the hotel and back for those guests who stay on the Club floor. At the hotel lobby I was welcomed by Taj hostess who took me straight into my room on the 8th floor. All the rooms on this particular floor was recently renovated. You enter a different world altogether when you enter your room. It was done up quite painstakingly. It is the most modern hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Being a travel professional I have had the opportunity to visit and stay in many wonderful properties across the world. But from the standpoint of room decor, fixtures and fittings this one beats almost all. Bathroom amenities were in sync with the class of the room. The food outlets are absolutely top class whether the cuisine is Chinese (Tea House of August Moon) or Indian (Masala Art). Service was flawless throughout. All in all I had a great experience. I love the Taj Palace, the BEST in New Delhi.

soulless luxury

by TripAdvisor Member marcel13

It is not easy to find a good hotel for a reasonable price in delhi. For the last two nights of our journey we chose one of the top hotels. The building is impressive spacious and the rooms are excellent, large and quiet. Five star standard perfectly. The staff is friendly and always next to you.
On the other hand the hotel is far from the city center in the diplomatic area. Totally boring. The only place of interest is a cafe on the other side of the road where you can eat and drink ten times cheaper than in the hotel and meet some indian teenagers.
The hotel itself is full of luxury but lacks of style and atmosphere. Cold as the marble flooring. It could be anywhere else.
Our budget reservation via internet was without breakfast but unfortunately there is nothing in the surrounding where you can go for some snack in the morning. The opposite cafe opens at 10 am, so we had to smuggle some food into our room for the next morning.
Funny thing, but as higher the accomodation price as more you have to pay additionally.
The standard room charge is much overpriced, but you can find large discounts booking via internet.

Five Star Service all the way

by TripAdvisor Member tmemedia

I stayed at the Taj Palace ten years ago, and thought it was okay -- nothing special. Now I'm actually AT the Taj Palace right now and I am overwhelmed with how wonderful the service is. I am staying in a club level room, and that is well worth the upgrade. You get free breakfast where you can order anything you like, you get butler service that makes you feel like you have a personal Jeeves, you get some free laundry services, and a free shuttle to and from the airport. Also free internet in the club itself.
The rooms are exquisite-- fabrics are top quality, towels are fluffy, toiletries are plentiful. I just stayed at the Shangri-La in Manila, where they were pretty stingy with sub-par toiletries, so this was welcome. Also, the toiletries are Molton Brown, which I adore. The bathroom is all marble and granite, with a huge lit make-up mirror, which I really appreciate.

The room is also spacious, with a desk and two chairs, including a loveseat, coffee table, and large flat screen TV.
The view from the room is also amazing, right across the swimming pool and to the park beyond.

My only quibble is that closet space for two people is rather cramped, and the bathroom could be a smidge bigger.

Long Stay - Great Experience

by TripAdvisor Member honest-trudy

I stayed in this hotel for nearly 2 months and I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to Delhi.
The hotel is well staffed and has 4 restaurants, 1 bar and a lounge. It has a fairly large, well maintained swimming pool as well as gym facilities.
During my stay, the hotel hosted a number of conferences and weddings, but it never seemed over-crowded or too busy.
The rooms aren't massive but are big enough and the room keeping staff do a spectacular job.
If you want something special, say extra water bottles each day, it is a good idea to have a chat to your room keeping staff, or if this is not possible, leave then a note with 100-200 rupees enclosed stating your request.
A few of my colleagues had problems with their room bill - I didn't - so make sure you take a note of everything you charge to the room.
The interent is expensive, so if you are staying for longer than a few days, make sure you ask about discounts for a wireless connection in your room for use with your laptop.
The hotel is V-shaped around the swimming pool. Even numbered rooms face towards the road and entrance drive and can get the traffic noise. It's not too loud but may annoy some people. The odd numbered rooms face out onto the pool and although the view is better, they can be very noisy late into the night, when the hotel is hosting a function/wedding.
If you are staying for a long time, or require additional space, ask about the availability of a corner room, which are almost double the size for the same price.
The hotel uses swipe cards as access keys to the room. Make sure you get 2 and keep them away from your mobile phone, which has the ability to interfer with the magnetically stored information on the cards. Most people will have a problem with their access card during their stay, it seems never ending sometimes, but the hotel are usually pretty quick to send up someone with a new card.
The hotel is in the diplomatic quarter, so at least a 15min drive from anything you might want to see or do. There is nothing within walking distance, so don't stay here if you were hoping to walk to India Gate or Old Delhi! Taxi cabs are readily available and if you can afford them, expensive hotel cars work around the clock.

Hotel with swimmingpool in Delhi

by Nantosvelta


In the beginning of September we will arrive in Delhi.
It would be nice to start our holiday in a hotel with a swimmingpool to relax a bit before touring the country.
Any suggestions?

Best wishes, Nantosvelta

I don't know how much you want to spend, but if you're into 5-star places, then I can recommend the Maurya Sheraton. It has a really nice pool.

I think you need to specify ur budgets or the * rating of the hotels you are looking at.

Re: Re: Hotel with swimmingpool in Delhi

by robine

All the better, more expensive hotels have pools. Recommended are Imperial, Taj, Oberoi, Maurya Sheraton ...

Re: Hotel with swimmingpool in Delhi

by Nantosvelta

Many thanks for your replies sofar.
I expect that we will be looking for a 3 or 4 star hotel.
Would that be possible with a budget of 50-90 euros per night for a double room?

Greetings, Jiske

Hi Nantosvelta,
Welcome to India, most of the hotels have swimming pools, its also quite pleasant, end of the rains and the beginning of Fall and then winter. Depends where you are staying.
best wishes

Re: Re: Hotel with swimmingpool in Delhi

by loose_motion

It may not be possible to book a deluxe hotel for 90 euros. An excellent reference is www.indiahotelsandresorts.com .
They have a range of hotels for every budget. Good luck !
