Recent guest reviews
Treated myself to a night in this hotel as it looked interesting. Historically fascinating. Wonderful accommodation and lovely architecture. There's also a pool and a garden. Divine.. I felt like a true diva..
I arrived here straight from Delhi airport. We stayed 2 nights and used the hotel as a base to tour Delhi. We tgen went off to other areas of India. Rooms are quite good. There's great character to the building. We then returned here for our last night before returning to the UK. This time they put us in one if the Suites. Absolutely fantastic. Staff are great. It can be a bit noisy with impact sounds but that's old bulldings for you. The grounds are nice to walk through. A brilliant end to an amazing holiday.
Simply amazing! There is a very good reason why this hotel is rated so high, it is because you just can't fault it! Beautiful facilities and room, set in between amazing gardens and grounds. Staff are simply wonderful as well, especially the manager who organised a complementary breakfast pack on our last day as he knew we were leaving the hotel early. Will definitely head back there again!
Our agent had originally booked us in to the Oberoi but we discovered that this hotel was closed for renovations so the Maidens it was. On arrival from the airport we were greeted like long lost friends and after a welcome drink were shown to our suite No. 404 - delightful with a living area, bedroom, walk in shower all spotlessly clean. We ate in both restaurants for dinner. The Curzon is a la carte with a varied menu based on quality ingredients. Service especially the waiter Rohit was exemplary. The buffet where we had both dinner and breakfast (outside in the garden) again had a very wide choice. Service was excellent. The hotel built in 1903 is a heritage hotel reflecting the colonial era in style. The gardens are a fair size with a pool at the back and a wonderful Banyan tree dominating the rear of the garden. Situated in Old Delhi (do not be put off by that fact), the Maidens is a wonderful hotel (not your modern cold multi-national type of establishment). The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the Delhi metro which is clean and efficient. All staff were very kind and in such an establishment personal service is the order of the day. It was the perfect start to our 10 day stay in India touring Delhi & Rajasthan.
We stayed at Maidens in late September 2017 and had the most wonderful time. The hotel has managed to retain all the charm and elegance of a heritage property, while incorporating the comfort and luxury of a modern hotel. Our room was a quiet haven, lots of space, with comfortable bed and nicely equipped bathroom. Everything was kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay by attentive but discreet staff. The whole operation runs beautifully smoothly, from the smiling security staff, through to the reception desk and the courteous and efficient waiting staff. We were particularly impressed with the checkin process as we had made several changes to our booking prior to arrival, as our travel plans developed. All of this was handled without a hitch and the personal welcome we received on arrival made us feel truly that the staff cared about each guest. We loved the pool area and the beautifully manicured grounds, and the outdoor breakfast terrace and lovely buffet was a wonderful way to begin each day. A special mention for excellent tea and coffee - freshly made and delicious each morning. Another excellent plus point for the hotel is its easy proximity to Civil Lines Metro Station. We found the metro by far the easiest way to sightsee around Delhi and the hotel just a few minutes walk away. Delhi is a wonderful, but chaotic and noisy city, and Maidens was our haven of peace and tranquility from which to enjoy the delights of the capital. Next time we are in Delhi we will not hesitate about our choice of hotel, and already look forward to walking through the welcoming doors of Maidens again.
This hotel is as good as it is possible for to be. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave the staff do their utmost to make you feel welcome and special. Nothing is too much trouble for them and whatever their job in the hotel they strive to be the best they can and make your experience memorable. If you want to feel pampered and looked after this is the place to be, the manager and his team deserve to be congratulated on the service they provide. On arrival our vehicle was checked by security staff and it is clear that guest safety has the highest priority. Then you are greeted by smiling door staff with the most magnificent moustaches, (worth a picture). Check in was smooth and swift and it became evident that there must be hundreds of staff all knowing their jobs and eager to please. The hotel itself was opened in 1903 and retains that grand imposing colonial style, it is set in beautifully kept secure gardens, there is a conference centre and a swimming pool. There is a lot of history to the place if you have time to explore its corridors. The room we had was 404 and it was a huge suite, simple and elegant. The floor, as were many of the fittings, was polished mahogany. In the sitting room was a large screen Tv, a sofa, a desk with chairs and a table. There was also storage room and expansive bathroom. The bedroom itself was large and had a further flat screen Tv and plenty of three pin electrical sockets. Everything was quality including lovely bedding and down pillows. The bathroom had a walk in shower which provided a gush of piping hot water with the shower head at a sensible height. There were quality toiletries and fluffy, thick very white towels, and robes. The free internet speed was just over 2mbps, I found this fast enough to video call home but there is an option to upgrade to a faster connection at a cost. The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout. Breakfast was buffet style, with option to sit on the patio outside. Again the attentiveness and welcome of the staff was something special. There was an extensive and endless choice of food from Indian to English, with eggs being cooked to order. One evening we had the buffet which had a great choice of Indian and international food all cooked to perfection. I have one minor negative and that is the cost of a beer, all beer in the hotel is bottled which is a shame, and to charge £2.80 for a small (330ml) bottle of weak Kingfisher is expensive when it is 50 rupees to buy at the liquor store. If you want an oasis of tranquility in the bustle of Delhi this is the place for you, it exudes peace and serenity and I would thoroughly recommend staying there. We enjoyed our stay at Maidens very much, the hotel is head and shoulders above all of the worldwide quality hotels I have stayed at for the attention of the staff and the way they make you feel welcome. It is rare after such a short stay (2 nights) at a large hotel to be welcomed personally by the manager on arrival and thanked by him when you leave, but that is the charm and warmth of the place. If you can.... stay there.
My wife and I have recently returned from a trip of a lifetime to India, where we had the good fortune to stay at Maidens Hotel (Oberoi) New Delhi. We also travelled independently to Agra and Jaipur, but it was at Maidens Hotel (Oberoi) where we were treated like royalty. Not one member of their staff could have done more for us, the service was exemplary, always being met with a smile, from the doorman, the reception staff and management. Mr Kapoor has a magnificently trained staff team who go that extra mile to accommodate and afford guests the most luxurious comfort a hotel can offer. We have travelled extensively worldwide but never have we felt so “cared for” as at Maidens. The dining room is a complete culinary delight offering food for guests to meet all tastes from around the world. Amundeep is the master chef in this wonderful establishment. His food is top class whether Indian, Chinese or European. He even presented me with a happy birthday celebratory chocolate cake and a WELCOME back cake on our return to Maidens. Incidentally the breads he and his team bake are a delicious accompaniment with any meal and their speciality ice cream with Rose petal flavouring was totally out of this world. It’s a very relaxed dining room which Deepak and Rohan and their team serve to perfection. They were so friendly and efficient it was a delight to have meals there. We often talked of our next day’s adventures with Rohan whose local knowledge was invaluable. Our suite was luxurious and very welcome following our daily travels, so clean with quality fixtures and fittings and the floor was beautifully polished. The comfort was home from home. The respect shown by the room staff made us feel very welcome and special. Our daily dip in the pool, which was clean and well serviced by staff was an oasis of beauty. The buildings and grounds were immaculate and well kept. Security at the front gate and main door was always reassuring, welcoming and offered a smile and friendly chat. It is impossible to remember and mention everyone who works at Maidens but they do their job – “just right” and for that we send and enormous thank you and we hope to return one day. Perhaps we will return with friends or relatives to show them how great Maidens really is. Thank you, Mr Kapoor. Please convey our good wishes and grateful thanks to all of your staff.
Stayed at the Maidens both before and after our 3 week tour of Rajastan. Everything about this heritage hotel is great. The pool, one of the few that we struck that had a decent depth ( 12feet) was set in a serene and lovely setting. The breakfast buffet was good, the room was large with a lounge as well as a bedroom and the staff were all magnificent. There was free wi fi but we had trouble getting it at the pool area. This was solved by the staff giving us a modem that gave us fast wi fi at no cost. Would happily stay here again.
Had a lovely stay at this hotel in New Delhi. Was built in 1903 but has been renovated with modern amenities. Rooms were very comfortable. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. Breakfasts were fantastic as was the buffet lunch. Great introduction to our first trip to India. Internet is included.
Stayed for one night at the beginning of our journey round India. Service, food and rooms all excellent, staff are excellent and very friendly. Looking forward to returning. at the end of our journey.
