Classic in its decor, as well as in the quality and standards of attentive service, The Claridges Delhi, built in 1952, has a long-established reputation as one of the go-to quality hotels in Delhi. The pomp and history that echoes through its architecture give it aura of heritage, yet The Claridges is bang up to date in its facilities and the competence of its staff. They will go out of their way to help make whatever it is you want happen.
Inside the domed recessed lounge, you can wallow in the fragrance of the generous flower arrangements amid the vibrant scatter cushions on the many comfortable sofas. Nearby is the salon de the and, beyond that, the patisserie which is a magnet for Delhi cognoscenti. The delightful garden is a haven of peace and beauty, but if you also want a cultural dimension, you can visit the hotel’s art gallery showcasing some contemporary Indian artists who are attracting the attention of international collectors.
The rooms are immaculate both in their furnishings and attention to detail, while the marble lined bathrooms are a pleasure to linger in! The hotel has a palm tree-flanked outside pool, onto which some of the rooms open. With a spa alongside, it is the perfect place to relax with a drink after a steaming tour of old Delhi. If you’re feeling active,, you can spend time in the gym and emerge into the pool when the time comes to reward yourself.
The location of the hotel is extremely convenient for interesting venues within New Delhi, including India Gate, Khan Market, Janpath, and Connaught Place, while the Gandhi memorial is within short walking distance.
The Claridges offers a stylish and well located base for exploring Delhi. It is great value but some of the rooms can be small.
