Hotel The Royal Plaza
Ranked #77 of 715 Hotels in New Delhi
Reviewed 19 March 2012

If you're a business person and you don't want to pay the top whack of the Shangri La and le Meriddean but need to be in central Delhi the Royal Plaza works well. Everything is international standard, staff are great, food is fine - can't complain.

The decor is a crisis of liberace meets bollywood - the lobby is full of marbles statues and neon adorns the exterior. Just think of the price.

There is a pool - but pumped music will be with you at all times.

Finally - it would be great if the wifi were free - paying $10 a day just feels out of date.

I'd still recommend it tho'.

Room Tip: High the better - the hotel has great views over green Delhi

Standard rooms tiny,suite was so cold and bathrooms need major refurb.The pool area ok but no one seemed to go in pool, we felt this may have been due to the close proximity of the pool to the reception and lobby area, so it felt busy and overlooked.The incessant loud music didn't help the ambiance
.
The service in reception was slow, non of the staff seemed to communicate to each other, consequently you were left hanging around for taxis that were already there and we were given the wrong information about the proximity of Nizammudin railway station (journey took 10 minutes as opposed to the 30/40 minutes we were told,so we were charged a ridiculous.amount for the hotel taxi transfers)
Any positives? Good food,good location ok for a quick stopover.

Room Tip: There are good rooms?

Stayed at Royal Plaza during the month of Feb 2012 for 3 nights. While we checked it we got a room on the 19th floor, Found the rooms to be quite small. We also found that the ved linen were smelling stale as if they werent changed. Complained about this to the Hotel Front Office manager who prompty offered us a suite. The new room was better ( obviously).

Overall adding to the review, they do need to improve on the Breakfast, its just too monotonous having the exact same things served every morning. Also, feel that the rooms are a little overpriced. But again the location is excellent.

We stayed at this hotel, with its spectacular lobby, three times during our tour of India. The public areas are spacious and well appointed; the pool area is lit at night by twinkling lights. The food is well prepared and served hot. There is a choice of Indian and western food. They do a generous Sunday brunch served beside the pool. We found the rooms well decorated and comfortable if a little on the small size but adequate. The bathroom had a roomy walk in shower instead of a bath. On our second visit there was an issue with the plumbing in some rooms as the water was the colour of black coffee but ran clear after about 15 minutes. Some of the staff were less than gracious. We had issues at check out as they had charged for the wifi twice.

I stayed here with my Sister and Mum while sight seeing in Delhi and I have to say I was very impressed. The rooms were very nice and spacious and were nicely done.

The breakfast was good with efficient service and the hotel was conveniently located for site seeing being very close to the gateway
