Maidens Hotel, Delhi5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed here twice during February . Our suites were large , beautiful and extremely comfortable ( recently refurbished to a very high standard) . The food was excellent and the staff were exactly as you would expect at an Oberoi hotel - outstanding !!
This hotel has recently been awarded Heritage Status and deserves it. The grounds are beautiful with an outdoor swimming pool, plenty of room in the shaded gardens to watch the birds - including a baby owl. The food was very good and the rooms were delightful. We had a suite and it was a wonderfully cool and relaxed place to spend a little time after the hustle and bustle of Delhi. Staff were attentive but not overpowering. Highly recommended.
Having come from prestigious hotels in Kolkata and then Agra which set a high standard we wondered how Maidens Hotel would compare? The small hot chocolate we were offered as we checked in was a great start, and more so was the warm personal welcome from the hotel manager, Mr Kapoor. His staff seem to take that cue and have been extremely helpful over our 3 day stay. The hotel dating from 1903 (but with very up-to-date facilities), lives up to its heritage billing. Our room, described as a double, was, in fact a suite with a generous living room, a large bedroom, a dressing room and a marble bathroom with a very large modern shower. The AC was quiet and effective, the bed comfortable and commodious. We used the restaurants on a number of occasions. The breakfast is a varied buffet and we enjoyed fresh Indian and European dishes. In the evening one restaurant offers a delicious looking buffet but, not having a large appetite we opted for the a la carte menu in the Curzon Room, all the Indian dishes we sampled were excellent and the service very efficient. Having an appointment at one of the galleries in New Delhi we used the Hotel’s car service, the driver was excellent, driving carefully and safety despite the hectic traffic. At R.1200 for 4 hours it seemed good value. The hotel is in Old Delhi with an abundance of local colour, bazaars and monuments from the time of the Mughuls and the Indian Mutiny / First War of Independence. The Metro station is about 200 meters away and offers a cheap and fast service to the Red Fort and particularly to the centre of New Delhi (5 stops, about 15 minutes, r30s). Overall our stay was delightful and we felt fortunate to have found such a gem. We will certainly be back!
We were staying at this hotel for a few days on an organised trip and although we were only there a short time I can't say with any honesty that it nothing negative or truly positive registered with me. The place and staff were efficient and effective at all times but its location is perfect as it is ~5 minutes walk from a Metro Station.
We had our first night of the two weeks tour in Delhi at Maidens and it met all our needs. The charm of the old times is still there - you are travelling in time. The rooms are large and comfortable, the restaurant serves tasty food. The hotel is very close to the center and if you want to use metro - the station is maybe 200m from the hotel. If you like to get something stylish, colonial and comfortable - why don't you try Maidens!
The Maidens Hotel is a grand white building with lovely grounds and a decent swimming pool area for taking in the sun. The food is excellent, there are a couple of nice bars for taking a leisurely bevvy. The a la carte restaurant is a lovely big area and the garden area was a great place to take breakfast and the evening buffet outside. The staff were extremely friendly and the service is excellent. The room we had was extremely spacious and clean and tidy. The area outside the hotel doesn't offer much to walk to but there are tuk tuk drivers outside who can take you to India gate etc
Stayed for 2 nights on our tour of India. We had a lovely large room on the 4th floor overlooking the front of the hotel. I believe we were lucky as not everyone in our group had a view. It had a separate area for cases and clothes which meant there was no clutter. The bathroom was especially good with a large shower and separate bath. The lift was small but in keeping with the age of the hotel. It is good that they have kept it as it was. Breakfast was good and it was nice to sit outside in the grounds. Service was quick and efficient. Dinner was good in the Garden Terrace. We didn’t have time to use the pool, but it looked inviting. Loved the peacocks in the trees in the garden by the pool but glad they were not too close to our room! The doorman seemed a real character and made you feel very welcome. Check in was quick and efficient. There was just something that was missing that would otherwise have given this more of a wow factor. The happy hour is good - 4 hours between 4pm and 8pm but the bar is a bit austere with little character and service somewhat slow. It’s a shame that there is not a bar more linked to the garden area, although you are free to take your drinks out there.
From the minute we arrived we were very warmly welcomed by all staff with beaming smiles. This hotel is very well maintained beautifully clean with very spacious rooms. The meals were fantastic. A wonderful introduction to India. I would happily stay there again.
Booked into the Maidens Hotel for 2 nights at the end of a long 2.5 months travelling in Nepal and India to spoil myself. I just wanted to relax before a long trip home. Right from the word go, the staff were exceptional. Nothing was an issue, friendly smiling faces, greetings from everyone, top hospitality. The food was delicious with many great options. Was upgraded to a suite which was the most pleasurable way to end my holiday. Elegant spacious rooms, beautifully decorated. Well done to the staff, you are all such assets to the Maidens.
This is a beautifully maintained colonial building (former viceroy's residence). Rooms are massive, and well appointed. It's right on the yellow metro line, and the front desk has a metro card for guest use. The pool is set in a garden, but was under renovation when I was there. It looked lovely, though. Very good buffet breakfast, with good coffee. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. It was so great to feel cared for, since the airline lost my luggage upon arrival in India. Front desk staff helped me make multiple phone calls to the airline in order to get my luggage back, and made sure I was able to get some necessities, while I waited for my luggage to arrive. Lots of staff spoke good English. Bar has a good happy hour (they stock a good Indian chenin blanc). The food at the restaurant was decent (Indian dishes better than the others), but the breakfast was the best. With all that went wrong with my luggage and arrival in India, I am so glad that I decided to pay a bit extra for a nice, mildly luxurious hotel in Delhi. Definitely recommend.
