Reviewed 24 January 2014

They say you can put a lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig. Stayed here for one night on our trip to delhi with baby and husband. The front desk is poorly designed, with only couple of large chairs and table..no other decorations or wall hangings. Checkin took forever. The initial room smelled of cigarettes even though the staff claimed its a non smoking and there was a party next door outside the hotel with the room being directly next to that place. Staff me ever did not even consider that my baby needs to sleep and did not offer quiter room, which you would expect in a good hotel. We were moved to a quiter room, but still there was a smell of smoke and smog. We were coughing whole night..the rooms have been tried to be decorated in expensive looking, modern way, however they felt short on so many levels- not only all the furniture is of low quality, so are finishings, installation and un operational AC. The biggest bomb was when they brought in a fan,which was BLACK from dirt..when I told them that it is filthy dirty, they said it is not. It is just stained. I took piece of towel and wiped with it just the front part,when towel turned black too...in the end they took it back to clean, but it is simply unimaginable how would a hotel could bring a dirty amenity to be used, esspecially for somebody with a baby. Never again.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled with family

Oodles Residency location is very convinient, near to nehru place mtro station & a very big electronic market.
it is bit difficult to locate due to construction work near by, the hotel stall is very polite including receptin.

room was neat & clean, with all facilities furnished, food is very good inclusing morning breakfast, bit expensive,
There are restuarants and a cinema - in walkable distance. this does not have other facilities like gym, pool etc as

Very basic accommodation. Just as well we were only staying one night and as we were exploring Delhi only needed somewhere to crash for one night.
Room OK, fairly comfortable. Hotel basic. Restaurant without atmosphere and drinks licence.
Food OK
Good base though for touring the sights of Delhi. Would not have wanted to stay any longer.

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.
