One night stay in New delhiPosted Nov 23, 2013
Pros: the hotel staff were nice.
Cons: Cleaning is okay but it can improve
Location: the location was excellent. for business trips.
This was the first time I was in India and it was a trip for attending in an exam. I was nervous about the hotel's environment and the noisy location of the exam and the hotel, which is near to exam centre. I was afriad not being able to sleep enough the night before the exam, but the hotel Emarald was a place I felt safe, in term of hotel staff who were very friendly and nice, the silence of my room, which I've asked for, and the breakfast . I recommend this hotel to my friends for short time stay.

Not good value for money !Posted May 3, 2012
Pros: Staff always friendly - big smiles all the time
Cons: no hot water and high external noise
No hot watervfor 2 of the three days. Close to railway tracks and clanging bells. Doublue glazed windows didn't fit sill, attributing to high external noise.

Emarald - good location, good food, okay roomsPosted Mar 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
Right behind the 5 star Lalit so good neighbourhood. Walking distance to Connaught Place and various bazaars. I only had breakfast but it was great and good service around that. Room was tourist hotel class so good enough.

Good for DelhiPosted Feb 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel Emarald is located near Connaught Place and the New Delhi Train Station. The room was very modern and clean, with a shower and toilet. You need to run the water for at least 10 minutes to get warm, but it will eventually be hot. It is about a 30-minute walk to the train station, and not an easy route to follow, so I would recommend taking a cab or autorickshaw. The location of the hotel is a little difficult to find at first, so you should tell your driver it is near World Trade Center or LaLit hotel. The staff were very helpful, but not overly friendly. Free breakfast is included with the room, although it is nothing to get excited about. What you should get excited about is that the wifi internet actually works, which we have found rare while traveling over seas.

LOCATION ONLYPosted Feb 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel Emarald, New Delhi, India. Booked via Hotels.com. Stayed 4 days/3 nights. Twin Bed This property is location is location, location, location. Neighborhood is great and safe. Walking distance to Connaught Place, the center of Delhi, with bunch of shops, street market, Rajiv Chowk & Barakhamba road metro station, buses, park, restaurants, underground market, walking distance to Jantar mantar, almost all airline offices, post office, etc (list goes on). Rooms where below average clean. Bathroom was under lighted. Their is a railway right behind the hotel. Room is not sound proof. We where not able to sleep all night. Train blows air horn like every 30-mins. The lights keeps fluctuating all day and night. Another problem was you don't have keys to your room. Means every time you want to get into room, you have to wait until someone opens it for you. Breakfast was included in our package. But it was Cold every single day, except the Masala tea which was the best thing they have. Boiled eggs where under cooked. They charge Rs 150/person for breakfast if its not included. Which is not worth it. I would rather go to Connaught Place, pay little more for 2 people and have a la carte breakfast. There are no safe in rooms. It seems like their was only one staff member that was working. Everybody else will work if boss is walking by or is around. Don't take it as a complain, but if you can improve in this areas, this will be the best rated hotel near Connaught place. I plan to visit again. I would not stay their again.

delhi auto show visitPosted Jan 14, 2012
Pros: price, location
Cons: not set up for winter,
Location: walk to conaught place, walk to auto show, convenient
The heating system didn't work in either of the two rooms I was put up in. The controller makes you think you will get warm air so you don't ask for more blankets. But I think they were not set up for heating, just cooling. No desk to set up the computer on. convenient location though

This 2 night stay was a nightmare.........Posted Nov 4, 2011 on Hotels.com
Nothing works right in this hotel apart from the courtesy and effusiveness of the staff as well as the clean bedroom. Nightmare started from my 1st night; couldn't get hot water to take a shower. Then the WIFI went down. It was worse yet the following morning when they had to bring in 2 buckets of hot water for me to take a bath after much ado and loss of time - in a 4 star hotel? Internet was still down next morning and my day was in disarray already. Although they eventually changed my room when I got back, it really was no better - water from the shower was barely luke-warm. The bathrooms are dysfunctional and poorly appointed - no towel racks for instance. I would not stay at this hotel even if it was for free. It should be delisted or at least reclassified.
