Reviewed 16 November 2010

The hotel is charming and at a good location however their services are poor. You may not get hot water early in the morning, so if you have an early morning flight, you should avoid this hotel. The room that I was given hadn't been cleaned completely from the last guest's stay. Basic things in the bathroom which are supposed to be there weren't there and you constantly need to keep calling housekeeping. The good part is however that they have 24 hours room service and their food is not bad. The interiors of the hotel are lovely! And they have a superb sun roof deck on the terrace which is charming. If you can get past the basic hiccups, you could consider staying here! Oh you also need to pay for your wifi!

This property is located in South Delhi, and can be best described as a small boutique hotel. The overall design is quite nice and you could say the appointments are nearly to the level of high-end chain hotels, but with a few rough edges which make it OK, but potential to be much better.

The staff are friendly, particularly in the restaurant. Food in the restaurant is very good, with an extensive menu catering for nearly all tastes. Note the hotel is not licensed so does not serve alcohol. The masala chai is nice. One morning I did not go down for breakfast, and the staff called me in the room before the breakfast end time, asking if I would be coming down and whether they should keep the service open for me. Appreciated.

I stayed here twice within a week, and the room I was allocated on both occasions was the better deluxe room (booking was for the lesser superior type). The room was quite large, with nice sofa and good furnishings, comfortable bed and average amenities.

The rough edges I mentioned earlier are mainly to do with attention to detail. Cobwebs aboundein corners in the bathroom area, the amenities could be of a higher quality, and the public areas could be livened up with some plants, as well some other general hotel management issues which I prefer not to mention here. A bit more attention to detail could make this a great little hotel. It is not bad in what it is - in fact its quite good - but there is potential for it to move up to the next level with just a bit more attention to detail.

Overall, I would recommend this property and am likely to stay here again.

I am a business class and had to arrange an official meeting in Delhi with some of my guest coming up from the foreign land. . GeTS had booked 2 rooms in the Visaya for their 2 day stay and I had a chance in personal to stay with them.
It is a brand new hotel and being located in the prime location that is, Panchshila Park, South Delhi (residential colony) is a brand new hotel suitable for the business and the luxury class. The decor and the ambiance are nice, but it lacks the element of openness. The food was awesome and it did not deprive them of both the Indian and the western touch..
It is actually a nice location and safe place to be in Delhi, and quite a good place for the official purpose/s.

The Visaya Hotel is a "newish" hotel in the South of Delhi on a major road within fairly easy reach of the International airport. The hotel is swanky but not opulent, chic but not too hip for it's own good. Its main purpose is to provide quiet, cool accommodations in STYLE - for a reasonable price. The theme here is Southeast Asian. Variously posed Buddhas alight throughout the hotel and fresh flowers and offerings are a nice touch throughout. This is a boutique hotel and guests requiring full complement of business support should try elsewhere. There is not many shops or restaurants in the area which is the biggest drawback for me. But there is room service and a meeting room as well as a small gym and new spa however and it will suit most business travelers. Shopping and eats are a 5-minute car ride away. The world here is calm and relaxing and would be a nice splash out for backpackers. It is a special place that is quite sophisticated and hip but not pretentious or overdone. I stayed here for business for several weeks and would not hesitate to return if back in Delhi. Nicely done.

I love the get up and the room setup.

I do not like to call for Hot water before bath and getting delayed waiting for hot water.
I was delayed due to no hot water in the bath room and had to pay for breakfast.

The value of services offered do not commensurate to the price for similar category of hotels in Delhi.
