Decent stay and Day/Transit Rooms available too

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 15, 2008

The Uppals Orchid is nice 4/5-star hotel (honestly don't know which one it is). The rooms are comfortable and allow you some great sleep to get over your jet lag. The hotel is just a few minutes from the International Airport, so business commuters can find themselves conveniently located in the city.

Also for those travelers who find themselves on the all too common early morning connections, the Uppals Orchid offers day and transit rooms for affordable prices. The hotel's amenities are much better than you will find else where or at the airport itself. You can rest, shower and get some food in comfort.

Unique Quality: They offer all 5-star services, pool and day rooms if you wish.

Directions: about 15 minutes from the international airport

Serene Environment

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2007

The hotel facilities were rather good. The first floor rooms open out to a garden and a great view of the pool. There is a nice garden you can take a walk or jog. The gym was rather basic but adequate.

Breakfast was minimalistic but adequate. The RALPHS bar had a nice ambience. Internet Access was expensive and you'd think for the prices they charge you they could include internet for free.

The rooms were expensive 350+ USD. The rates they quote you often does not include taxes, ENSURE you get a nett price before you book. They charge you in rupees at the end of the stay and sometimes they charge different conversion rates each day, sometimes a standard rate.

Overall a good place to stay if you were looking for a romantic stay.

Unique Quality: Fabulous service and friendly faces.

Close to Airport, can't think of any other reason

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 20, 2006

I stayed at this hotel because it was close to the airport and I had a morning connecting flight. Its about 15-20 mins drive from the airport (domestic). There was a car (toyota corrola) to pick me up from the airport, which was nice.

The other reason I stayed in this hotel was I had a business associated who also was staying here - upon check-in I gave a file to the receptionist which I wanted "slipped under" his door by evening - they said they'll "put" it in his room instead. Nothing - next morning I had to collect the file from them - the guest wasn't in, blah blah blah.

Room was small for a 5 star - nothing to write home about. When I booked the room, the description said "free high speed internet" but after connecting there was price-list of hours/days - I didn't feel like arguing and coughed up the $25 or so for the day use of internet. Complimentary breakfast - below average for a 5 star hotel.

All in all, not highly recommended for the price & class.

Unique Quality: Unique - this is in only hotel I have stayed in where they ensure you don't have enough water for the tea/coffee machine (the 500ml complementary bottle they give you is not enough, and you can't use Delhi tap water) so you have no option but to use it from the mini-bar (chargeable) or call them up and wait.

Directions: a few mins away from the Radission hotel - which comes first when you drive from teh airport to this hotel.

Fine airport hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

About 15 minutes by car (or auto-rickshaw) from the international and domestic airports, Uppal's Orchid bills itself as New Delhi's first "eco hotel," whatever that means.

It is certainly a luxury hotel: large rooms, well appointed, good restaurants, and an excellent business center with high-speed computer connections.

Unique Quality: Pool, business center, restaurants, lobby bar adjacent to a sweets shop; also fitness center and putting greens.

Directions: Near the airports
