Excellent hotel, worth its premium rate
Posted Mar 15, 2017
This property may well be one of the most serene getaways in an otherwise sprawling, and often congested, metropolis that is Delhi.
The standard king rooms are immaculate in their decor and upkeep and are large enough to cozily fit in 2 adults and a child. The bathrooms are beautifully appointed with the shower experience being the highlight. The water pressure in the shower alone is a sight to see - enough to shake and wake you up in the morning.
Breakfast lounge, called Qube, serves contemporary breakfast in a setting that rivals the Fairmont and also includes more traditional options from all corners of India such as Dosa, Pooris, Paranthas and numerous others. Highly recommended.
The on-site bars and restauraunts serve delectable cuisine and I was impressed with authenticity of drinks and food options available here. Would have sampled many more items from the menu had I more time during my stay.
The hotel does command a premium over the typical Taj Palace and various other 5 star options in Aerocity. The experience here, in my opinion, is more subtle and pleasures your senses without making you feel overwhelmed. The hotel building and Lobby are small in comparison to more hotels but the grandiose feeling here is omnipresent.
Go for this hotel if you are:
1. In India for a short business trip
2. Pampering your wife and kids on holiday
3. Looking to experience real Indian hospitality
