“A nice surprise in the hearth of New Delhi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during a business trip to Delhi, the hotel is tucked away in a cul-de-sac road near Nehru Square, in the center of Delhi southern suburbs.

The entrance is impressive, with a nice and comfortable sitting area in a wide room, with the reception desk facing the leather armchairs and the couch.

The reception person is very polite and helpful, as all the staff in the hotel.

My room was a surprise : it seems a 4 star hotel room : a very large room with a king size bed
with excellent bedding, a desk with ergonomic chair, a large LCD TV with all foreign channels, and the bathroom, divide from the room by a glass division.

Breakfast was consumed in the hotel restaurant, it had a 6 containers of cooked Indian delicacies, and eggs, toasts, jams, yogurts and fruits. Unfortunately cheese is not an Indian fare, you'll find imported cheeses only in 4 and 5 star hotels in India...,

The effect is very sophisticated and elegant, very clean throughout and with good maintenance, noticeable by the way everything was in working order.

The hotel has only 38 rooms, but it is really run as a 4 star hotel, not three as it is classified in the booking search websites... you can feel it from the level of furnishing and accessories employed as well as from the service level.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to both business and holidaymakers, for its very good quality to price ratio, for the excellent service and for its central location, within easy reach of the metro and by taxi, to other attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the highest floor , as you will have a good view...

Situated near the metro in Nehru Place is Oodles Residency. I must admit, we arrived late from Kashmir and our driver found it a bit difficult to locate as it is situated in sort of a residential area. The side gates leading to the hotel are closed off at night for security reasons - I'd rather drive looking for the place and have a sense of security!. Needless to say when we arrived, the hotel receptionist was most efficient and helpful. We had a speedy check in. Our room was clean, well furnished and the extra bed we ordered was not necessary as the bed was large enough for our 13 year old to cuddle up with us. Note that this hotel is opposite Neru Place and if you are looking for electronics, this is the place in New Dehli, so the locals say. There are restuarants and a cinema - just go under the subway walk. My daughter was hungry and ordered troom service. Great service and great tandoori chicken and naan!. Breakfast were always pleasant and the waiters were always willing to please. My favourite were the waffles and syrup nothing better to get the energy levels up before you go sightseeing and shopping in Connaught Place. This hotel catered for our needs , we did not need a gym, pool etc as we had limited time and were out all day. For families that need that or the the business traveller, this is ideal. It is +-20km from Connaught Place but if you do not want the hustle and bustle of living within the 2km radius of Connaught Place then this is ideal. They stored our baggage at no charge whilst we toured Kashmir for a week and came back. We even celebrated HOLI with the neighbours living next to the hotel - such warm and friendly people. For us South Africans, this was one of the best cherishable moments to have been able to be in Dehli for the fesitval!. We will have no qualm in returning to the hotel.

Room Tip: We booked a family delux room - 2 adults and a chilld. This was spacious enough.

Comfortable, well-equipped and well-appointed rooms, friendly staff, well laid-out and quiet coffee shop (where you can work as well), good internet service, great location (which will get even better once the new Metro station comes up). Not much more needed for a short business trip.

Room Tip: The park-facing rooms have a far better view.

Do not confuse this hotel with the Oodles Hotel @ Chattarpur. This hotel is for those executives who work all day long and check-in just to sleep. The hotel has absolute zero amenities, though the makemytrip site claims otherwise. The food is ok, staff is average and the ambience good. The only advantage it carries is its proximity to Nehru Place and a low price.

I had a very bad experience right from the Hotel's Booking Call Center to dealing with reception.
There is no swimming pool, gym or even a bar. This was advertised on the website that I used to book ( Makemytrip.com).
At about 9 pm I had a few friends visit me. They weren't stopped when they were coming in past the reception but at about 11pm they were asked to leave. After a bit of negotiation they were allowed to stay but were asked for their ID. When they eventually left, I went down to the reception to ask them why a no visitor past 8pm policy existed and where it was written, I was rudely told to contact makemytrip and that it was not their problem that I was not informed. The receptionist went on to say that it was my guests' duty to inform the reception of their visit and deposit their ID and not his job to inform them about their policy.
For $80 I have stayed at some great places, this isn't one of them, I will never come back.

Room Tip: just don't bother

Enjoyed the room ambience and look. The stay was very comfortable and would like to go there in the future as well. The room price is a bit high. The morning breakfast buffet was delicious and enjoyable.

Good only for basic requirement of having a room with bed. The rooms are well done with good baths. Otherwise the hotel has no lounge area or a good restaurant to enjoy the stay. Located inside a sort of gated residential locality, if coming back late at night creates issues about getting these gates opened and walk for almost 700 meters to get to the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for road facing room.....
