Myself, husband and nearly 2 yr old stayed here during part of our 1st trip to india we were very happy with our choice. We arrived at night very tired, we were taken to our room straight away no long wait. The room was clean, a bit small but we did have all the parafanalia that goes with such a young baby and comfortable. The bathroom did not have a bath, just a shower which was absolutely fine for us (we tought our son to blow the water out of his face rather than swallow it, just to be extremely cautious) but maybe with a small baby would have been a little difficult (don't know if they have baby baths on request at reception?). What was a lovely surprise was there was thought put into the fact the hotel had a baby guest staying and we were provided with not only our toiletries, but some of the Johnsons baby range (shampoo, bubble bath, tablet of soap, body lotion and talc). This was a lovely touch as so many other hotels don't even think of this and in 8 holidays abroad with our little one this was the 1st time we had anything like this. The only thing I would say is that although everything looks clean if you are taking a baby and need to sterilize and wash bottles etc make sure you take disinfectant wipes/ spray etc and do the sink 1st like we did as when you do this it didn't appear as clean as it looked (maybe to do with the dirty cloths everyone seems to clean with everywhere we went in india)
We went to the buffet restraunt to try the different types of indian cusine which was lovely and very reasonable in price.
The staff in the restraunt couldn't do enough to help and loved our son and he loved all the attention!! We liked it so much we went back the next night too. Again take wipes etc for the table, hi chair with a baby, you cant be too careful and we do this in england so it was no different for us.
We did the tour of new and old delhi through the hotel and it was brilliant, it was a private tour just for us, so we had greater flexibility with a baby, but we couldn't have asked for better, the route was altered to suit his nap times so we all got the best out of it and another bit was added in when he slept for longer than expected just so that when we went to the india gate we could take him on the boats. So although not a great deal of travellers take such young children to india it was really easy. Any adjustments to schedule, or attention to detail in england would have caused chaos but it we were not made to feel this was anything but the norm. The guide was great and very informative. We could definately recomend this tour.
When we arrived back to the hotel we were greeted in reception with a huge chocolate birthday cake for my husband (we hadn't mentioned it to anyone so we were very confused - they noticed on his passport his DOB) all the staff sung happy birthday and even went as far as feeding him cake - very amusing!! The rest of the cake was sent up to our room with some fruit. This attention to detail makes you feel very relaxed and at home, even down to the fact the reception staff remember your names when you walk in.
As we enjoyed the tour organised through the hotel we booked a tour with them to agra and jaipur and samode for the remaining time in india which proved to be fantastic too.
This hotel is attached to a mall however I can't tell you anything about it as we didn't have time to go. There is a spa on the roof, which is a welcome escape from a hectic delhi - we only however managed to fit this in at night which was beautifully lit but obviously we didn't use it to its full capacity.
The location was great not too far from anywhere, we saw all the other 5* hotels upon our return from jaipur, on the very outskirts of delhi taking maybe 30min- 60min to get to sights of old and new delhi (glad we didn't choose these) so we were very glad we chose to stay here as I think it took 10 mins until we were at the 1st sight.
