                • Couple

                  Positives: excellent service starting with the airport transfer and fast response to any request. Food was good, but buffet in the Pickwick was not very varied in the hot dishes. Outdoor restaurant Sevilla was excellent, but expensive. Massage was very good. So if you don't mind the prices, and take a better room it is ok. I maybe was unlucky with the room they gave me.

                  First warning, don't take room 218, it is next to the stairs and you will hear luggage bouncing up and down all night! Also the door had large gaps that let noise through. Marble floors are very pretty but acoustically a disaster. The hotel did offer to change room immediately when I complained. For the class of hotel I expected better quality rooms, no dirty marks on the wall or cracked plaster, and an airconditioning system that is a lot quieter. Luckily there was a special reduction, but food and drink in the hotel is also very pricey (similar to west-european prices).

                  Nice colonial type of old fashioned hotel with good service. Good food.

                  Breakfast was nothing special.

                  The architecture

                  The bathroom was constantly reeking of sewage gas. Had to have air fresheners brought in daily. The pool area was sub par, with only two umbrellas for 20 chairs. Pool was freezing cold.

                  Tremendously helpful staff. Went way beyond the norm. Rooms are spacious & restaurants served excellent food.

                  The hospitality and warmth of the staff

                  The makeshift arrangements of Gym since the hotel was under renovation

                  I was awakend at half past 6 in the morning by an strong and irritating noise of a pump for the water of the hotel shower I had to cancel my reservation of another stay but had to pay the full amount though I offered half as a compromise; I expeierenced ythis as a very unfriendly attitude

                  nice environment, nice foyer and reception area,

                  awful glue smell in room, asked to move which they did but clearly showed thier disapproval of this, given wrong price for the buffet evening meal so had a socok when final bill arrived, overpriced for what it is. staff felt unapproachable at times. would not stay again. just didnt feel as welcoming as other hotels we have been too, hotel taxis are a rip off and always try and get more from you.

                  Room was very comfortable, bed amazing and view onto poolside good for India. Metro 3mins walk. Very quiet and if you want time out and away from the intensity of Delhi then a good place to be. Breakfast was amazing and only thing included in room rate!

                  No wifi, well without paying excessively- something now free in most western European countries. Price- high with the taxes charged at 20% of the ratecard for the room and not the room cost itself which was cheeky. Makes the Booked.net deal look cheap but actually turned out to be 50% more on check out and very expensive. Area is very quiet and if you want to experience real Delhi you won't there with only Consulate offices nearby. Better to stay in one of the Colony areas, Karol Bagh or Connaught area in our opinion. Though Metro is 3mins walk- a massive bonus. Restaurant expensive and small, when so many very good places to eat in Delhi why stay in hotel.

                  Conveniently located, and peaceful. Well staffed, and good service; staff will go out of their way to meet your needs. Good selection of restaurants. Fine for business travelers.

                  If one is looking for hustle and bustle of an India city, this is not the place; it is located in the quiet embassy section of Delhi.
