15 Barakhamba Road, Connaught Place, New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi, 110001 , India
Best New Delhi Hotel
This hotel is very luxurious. It is a 4 star and quite expensive but usually pretty fully booked because of its quality. The rooms are sumptuosly furnished with quality bedding and furniture. The rooms are decorated in a classic fashion as if you are a Government Minister of the British Raj. The restaurant at the top provides excellent cuisine with a great view over New Delhi. You forget that once you step outside the hotel you are in the poor streets of India. The hotel is as good as the best hotels anywhere in the world. The service is also surprisingly good for India. If you want to get away from the grime of Delhi and escape spend a night at the Hans Plaza. It will be worth it.
Unique Quality: Furnishings are exquisite, olde worlde but new. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Excellent cuisine at reasonable prices.
More about Hans Plaza
Great relief to get to the Hans Plaza
Great location, within walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and subway/metro station right around the corner.
Welcoming drinks, very helpful staff, clean and modern facilities.
The restaurant has good breakfast (Indian and Western).
We stayed at this hotel during the last part of our trip to India, which was a great relief for us, after being just about everywhere.
Two minor issues:
1. The charge (and not cheap) for internet access in the room.
2. Some people arrived in the middle of the night, with zero common sense, making plenty of noise.
Bottom line, trying to save some money staying somewhere cheaper may be a really bad experience. This is a safe bet and good value.
High rise hotel in Delhi
Nice hotel, although service in the restaurant was a bit slow, especially in getting the bill.
The rooms were excellent, and very clean. Rooftop restaurant.
The lift doesn't stop beween floors 4 and 14. Still don't know what was on those floors, maybe the Indian Secret Service!
Looks from outside as if the middle floors are crumbling, which can be disconcerting when your accomodation is likely to be on the 20th floor!
We stayed here 2 nights in our tour of Rajasthan booked through Indus Travels of Canada, Hi Tours in India. Hotels featured in their ads were Hans Plaza and City Park, both with good reviews. However, as in several other stops we ended up with something lesser.
The Star Grand Villa is small; all rooms are on the 3-story stairwell. While the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the plumbing is modern, noise was a major problem interrupting the sleep of many of the eleven of us on the tour. The first night we were awakened by loud kitchen noises at 4AM - the early start did not result in the minimalist buffet of stale breads, boiled eggs and rasam being ready on time, however. The next morning a group checking out awakened us at 5AM. The receptionist was unable to change currency for us or break bills into smaller change needed for tipping. Because of the noise problems I would suggest a different hotel.
A lil expensive for an average stay
In the 3 hotels that we've stayed during our trip in India covering Delhi, Agra (Sheraton Mughal) & Mumbai (Ascot Hotel), the Hans Plaza was expensive for a pretty average hotel stay. We paid Rs6500 for a triple-sharing room & Rs5500 for a twin-sharing room incl. buffet breakfasts.
The lobby was modern (seems newly renovated) in the minimalistic/
"zen" look and we were offered cooling welcome drinks while we were checked-in. The reception staff were cordial & efficient at checking us in.
The concierge/bell person was friendly & helpful in helping us to get our bags to the room. We got both rooms side by side and right near the elevators but we slept well without much disturbances from outside though the doors were pretty thin. The rooms were clean with woodish floors and marble flooring at the entrance & to the bathroom.
Twin rooms were a good size but it gets a little cramped with the extra bed in the triple sharing room. TV has over 60 channels but most were in Hindi though there is StarMovies & HBO.
Bathroom only have showers (no bathtub) but clean and water pressure is good. We had some problems with the hot water kettle and some of the power points did not work. The staff were very helpful though and fast in responding to our needs.
You do get very good views outside as the rooms are all located above the 15th floor. The only downside is that the two tiny elevators are a little slow and sometimes you have to wait a while for it.
There is a good selection at breakfast buffet for both local & international tastes. However the variety is the same daily so after a few days, you'll get kinda bored with the food.
Overall we had a comfortable stay. It was well-located, within minutes of walking to Connaught Place and the area was safe.
I suppose this may be good value in Delhi where hotel prices are known to be sky high at times! We did see quite a few business type people staying at the hotel so I guess this is considered a business class hotel.
A Bad Experience
We wish we had read the reviews before choosing this hotel. It was truly a bad experience. Firstly, we arrived at 1 p.m. and needed to rest after a long flight. They were repairing a sewer pipe in the next room, hammering it out of concrete, this went on till 11 p.m. When we complained to the manager, he turned his back and walked away. The restaurant had been moved to the second floor, our hotel directory stated it was on the top floor. The wait time for food was exceptionally long and the restaurant Manager lined up three of the restaurant staff and started shouting at them in front of customers. The front desk was not helpful in arranging transport to a tourist attraction that we wanted to visit. I could go on, but I think that is enough.
Average hotel, good restaurant
I stayed here as part of a tour group - but I've seen how expensive it is on their website and I would have not paid that much.
Rooms - clean and comfortable - great views over New Delhi
Reception staff - not brilliant - short changed on our currency exchange, got our alarm call wrong (called us 1 hour early - irritating).
Housekeeping - came very quickly when I complained the hairdryer didn't work.
Noise - no double glazing here - plus there was building works during the day.
Restaurant - good breakfasts and worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Staff here very friendly, although getting a cup of tea in the morning is a bit of an effort.
Location - good central location.
I wouldn't recommend this place to my friends.
Average Hotel in Delhi
The Hans Hotel is well located in Conaught Place. It ia a bit poor hotel for the price. In Europe you would get a far better hottel fot the price you pay. But Delhi in general is far more expensive then the rest of India in terms of hotels and I belive there is no mid range. Nothing special, just clean. The air conditioning works well, it is actually pretty cold in the hotel and the breakfast not bad.
Entrance to the Hans Plaza
Hotel Hans Plaza v Hotel Connaught
As both are 4 stars, jsut wanted to know which one would you choose and why? We have 3 chidren with us so child frinedly is a 'must'
RE: Hotel Hans Plaza v Hotel Connaught
We stayed at Hanz Plaza a couple of years ago. It was a very run-of-the-mill four star hotel, a small lobby, a rooftop restuarant and that was about it. I can't remember any gardens or pool, but I wasn't looking for it either. There were some restaurants within walking distance. I can't comment on the Connaught as I don't know it. Good luck in your comparison.
