Conveniently located 5-star near airport
Posted Mar 7, 2017
In general, we love the Leela and have stayed several times at both the Gurgaon and Chanakyapuri sites. This was our second stay at the Gurgaon site in the last 2-3 years. Overall, while the hotel facilities and service are world class and the location is conveniently near the international airport (especially good for those midnight arrivals and departures), I found three items that place this particular hotel below 5-star standards: the Indian restaurant, Diya, the poor lighting in the room and the poorly designed bathroom. Diya had unimaginative food with exorbitant prices (INR 700 for bottled water!) and has not improved in the several years since our last experience there. The bathroom is designed with a glass window to the room - so, if one occupant turns on the bathroom lights in the morning, it is certain to disturb the other occupant. Furthermore, the shower controls are not marked, necessitating one to experiment with 4 different knobs while trying not to get scalded by hot water.
