“Would never stay here again”
Reviewed 12 March 2010

I stayed at the Svelte for two nights on my first trip ever to India. This hotel has no ambience what so ever. I felt like I was staying in a rented room above a public library.

It takes a long time to get here from anywhere, and I could not believe the way that you get into this place. It sits 1/2 mile or so off the main road, and the road to the hotel & mall is a gravel road with so many potholes, and so much traffic, I thought I was going to hurl before we made it to the front door. There is no driveway...you just get out of your car somewhere in the vicinity of the hotel.

The Svelte Hotel is a convenient place to stay between Delhi airport and the city. We stayed two days on arrival at Delhi and decided to return after an 18-days Rajasthan tour for another two nights. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The service was excellent. The hotel id adjacent to a big shopping mall. Hence it might be a little noisy from the outside until 10:00 p.m. when the mall is closing. No noise during the night time.

I stayed at the Svelte for four days in January 2010 and was very pleased with the experience. The rooms are very spacious and modern, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the rates quite reasonable - in a city not known for reasonable hotel rates. Since I was traveling with friends, we booked a two bed/two bath suite for about US$400 per night, which ended up being much more economical than had we elected to stay in separate rooms at one of the chain hotels. By comparison, double rooms at the chain hotels (Taj, Oberoi, Starwood, etc.) were all in $350-500 range. While the Svelte is not nearly as opulent as the five star downtown hotels, opulence wasn't what I was looking for. Rather, I was looking for a clean, spacious, modern hotel with all the amenities a business traveler would need - and that's exactly what I got. While the hotel is not centrally located in the downtown area, I actually found that to be a plus, esp. since downtown was a 10 minute, inexpensive taxi ride away. Further, by being connected to a very modern, high end shopping mall complex, entertainment, shopping, and dining options are abundant. I would definitely stay at the Svelte again.

The Svelte Suites are quite ... svelte. Located in an upscale shopping complex (City Walk) in New Delhi, this is a very comfortable hotel by any standard. My wife and I stayed here for three nights in Dec. ‘09 on an organized tour. We had just come from two weeks of roughing it in Nepal and the luxury of the Svelte Suites was quite welcome, even if it wasn’t representative of the “real” India.

The lobby area of the hotel is small yet very attractive, reminiscent of a boutique hotel in Europe. The lobby connects directly to the adjacent shopping mall without going through the public security screening process – a sad advantage.

Our large, well-appointed room was on the 7th floor, with a bird’s eye view of the outdoor commons area for the shopping complex. As the name implies, it was a suite. The front half consisted of a sitting area with sofa, coffee table, and large flat-screen t.v., and also a kitchenette with sink, cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, and a small office area with a desk. Between the living and sleeping areas was the large bathroom with marble floor and vanity, with plenty of counter space. Shower only. We had a small maintenance issue with the shower head height adjustment being broken.

The bedroom area was large and attractively decorated. We had two comfortable twin beds pushed together, with night stands and reading lamps. There was plenty of room for luggage, and also a large closet area with built in dresser drawers.

The breakfast buffet was excellent.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and recommend this hotel highly.

Excellent service from staff. Very new hotel in New Delhi located a bit away from the hustle and bustle. Rooms were excellent and very upmarket. Well located next to a mall, with KFC and Pizza Hut across the road.

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.
