“Excellent Rooms- beats the big names with ease”
Reviewed 30 December 2009

The thing about the svelte is that for the price of a basic room at an Oberoi or a Sheraton, you end up getting a newly constructed and fully furnished suite. I stayed in the Royal Suite. Massive living room with a live kitchen (which i used an found to be quite useful considering theres a grocery store in the mall), a spacious bathroom with a rain shower, a huge bedroom and a walk-in closet. The manager, Mani is extremely approachable and took personal care of us during our stay. They even have a rooftop swimming pool cordoned off from all sides to ensure privacy as well as a small gym. Plus, rather than paying pricey 5 star rates for food, you can step out and eat at any of the 3 adjoining malls. I would definitely recommend this for families and couples looking for a luxurious get away and an alternative to a regular 5 star hotel where you are given a tiny room for insane prices.

Basically the suites are like private condos, but the companies website is very misleading. Our Royal suite was very large, and very nice, but hotel services where lacking. The website says enjoy dinner at our Lounge & Bar, but it was not licensed, so I am not sure how that is a lounge or bar. The food was OK at best. It was the smallest selection out of all the hotels we stayed at in India, and it was also the most expensive. That being said it was the nicest room we had. The pool was OK, but again the view was of concrete walls, and for a roof top pool I expected a better view. Its location was good for shopping, but far from the airport. The website also says “well-equipped fitness centre”, I do not consider two treadmills, one universal weight machine, and some free weights well equipped. All in all if you want to rent a nice condo, this is the place, but if you want a hotel try somewhere else.

I stayed at the Svelte Hotel for three nights as part of an OAT tour. Some things were very nice, others very poor -- hence, a mixed experience. What was nice: the rooms were nice and clean. The service at the reception desk and in the restaurant was both efficient and pleasant. As for the negative, it started with the transportation from the airport. I had arranged with the hotel for a limo from the airport, with all information confirmed via e-mails with the hotel. My first problem occurred when the hotel did not send a limo. My second problem occurred when I had to arrange for a ride with an airport taxi that couldn't locate the Svelte due to both its location and adjacent construction. (It is not visible from any main thoroughfare.)
The next problem was the construction of a staging area for a festival adjacent to the hotel. Being kept awake all night from the construction was bad enough, but that was followed by an oversized shower head falling on my head the next morning.
Fortunately, the service desk was very responsive, and I was able to move to a room on a quiet side of the hotel that morning. From that point on, my stay was much more pleasant. However, other tour group members that continued to stay on the noisy side of the hotel never did get a decent night's sleep.
So, my advice is: be sure to request a room away from the side used for festivals, and take extra precautions if you are arranging your own transportation to the hotel.

The hotel was good and the service was pretty nice. I did find the restaurant and the service very nice.

The only problem I see was little lack of courteousness of staff at the reception as well as in the room service.

Everything else was perfectly fine and its is a nice stay.

This hotel, connected to 4 or 5 different shopping malls, is first class in all aspects. The suites are excellent; clean, tidy and well maintained. Exellent breakfast in nice dining room. A very enjoyable place to stay and rooms a good size. Nice to have kitchenette & dining room separate from the bedroom.

  • Liked — Separate kitchenette & dining roon to bedroom. I.E. These are not the run of the mill hoel room-excellent accomodation

The suites literally give you a feeling of being “at home” albeit in more luxury and comfortable surrounding! While the approach to the hotel is quite bad (thanks to the traffic due to the adjoining shopping malls) once you forget about it all once you are inside the premises. The reception is small and cosy with every helpful and courteous staff. We have stayed in the hotel nearly 6-7 times over the past one year and never had any complains! The suites include a living room, a bedroom and a small open kitchenette. Quite ideal for families with kids as you can whip up a quick meal in your own room or warm milk. We usually buy stuff from the adjoining malls like croissants and eggs to enjoy it later in the room. The bedroom and living room each have a large LCD which is a bliss since you do not have to fight with your partner over the remote! The breakfast buffet is quite okay – since we have quite a many at this place we find it monotonous else it is pretty satisfying. The inroom dining has limited options but top of the world cooking! The rates have been lowered recently – maybe due to the increasing competition nearby – there are 100s of eating joints within walking distance so you have a lot of choice! The internet access is quite expensive - more than what they probably charge at Taj but it makes up for the overall comfort of your stay.

The hotel is in midst of a mall which has a multiplex so you can spend a weekend without actually moving out of the hotel – movies, games, shopping, dinner, its all under one roof!
