“Highly Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

We spent 3 very enjoyable nights at this hotel.The rooms were well appointed and spotlessly clean.And the bed linen was snowy white.The staff are well trained , helpful and very friendly.The food at the restaurant was delicious.Our check in was a breeze and had no trouble organizing a late check out.Naturally a fee was charged.We can recommend this hotel highly and would stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor at the back and had no problems with noise.

I use this often. Compared to the overpriced hotels in Delhi this is one place with a reasonable price. Good rooms, appear to be done up recently. Nice breakfast, a Japanese restaurant Sakura. Also one of the few places in Delhi where you can walk out to the Bengali Market, Connaught Place and other areas for a meal and a drink. Well located, well priced hotel. No large promises so no let down. You get what you pay for and that is all I ask of any hotel.

Room Tip: The street facing rooms are quiet enough and have a view

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012 via mobile

We just stayed a night as we were transiting through Delhi en route from Agra. I had booked 2 interconnecting rooms for my husband, me and our 2 kids. Check in took 10 minutes, after which we were shown to 2 rooms, both with twin beds. I asked to change to one with a king bed, and was told there wasn't one available. Oh well. As we settled in, we realised the kids' room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Went back down to reception to ask for a change to a non smoking room (which I had originally requested). Got it after a while, and guess what!? We now had a king bed! Amazing that one became available so quickly!
Service at Zing was terribly slow, though we had told them we were in a hurry and only ordered sandwiches/ wraps. Moving our luggage to the other room was slow too. It's irritating when they say it will take '1 minute' and takes 15. If its going to take 15-20 minutes, say so!
The room was nice. Not big, but ok. Thd toiletries are from their in-house spa and very nice. The rain shower is wonderful. I agree though, with a previous reviewer that the frosted glass wall between the room and bathroom needs to be changed!
The air con was blasting to a freezing temperature. The temp reading said 28 degrees (23 in the kids room) and couldn't be changed. The room was an ice box. We switched the air con off, and kept it off throughout but still only managed to get the room to a comfortable temperature in the morning.
Wifi is charged, and rather exorbitantly so.

The biggest pluses are the restaurants. Didn't try Sakura, but Chutney was amazing (see review).
And the location. My main purpose for stopping over was to shop at the Government state emporia on Baba Kharak Singh marg, and these were just a short 7-10 minute walk away. Keep going and you reach CP.
The metro station is nearby. The airport city check in terminal is currently closed for repair, but is just a 5 minute walk away, so really convenient if you want to take the train to the airport.
Price wise it is cheaper than other Delhi 5 star hotels. But then again, you are probably only getting 4 star worth.

Would I stay again? Probably. Just for the location and price. And now that I know what to expect it will be easier to palate.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your review. I am very sorry to note that your experience was not as positive as that of others on this site but thank you for sharing this with us.

We sincerely apologise as we couldnt provide you with the interconnecting rooms at the first instance due to our internal communication error. We regret the inconvenience caused to you and we will be more careful in future.Regarding your experience at Zing restaurant, when I investigated the total time spent by you from the time of giving order to the time of final bill was just of 34 minutes which is an normal time. I am sure you will understand that we are not an fast food joint and even sandwitches and wraps are also freshly prepared on order only. The 15-20 minutes preparation time is not too long.

We do have rooms with non transparent glass wall in bathrooms so will request you to ask for such room during your next visit with us.We have bedside control panels in all our rooms from where the room temperature can be controlled.We offer free wifi to our returning customers under the repeat customer package on our hotel's website so will request you to book your accommodation in future under that package and avail this special offer.

I apologise for the inconveneince caused to you and I will personally ensure an much better stay for you during your future visit at our hotel. Please feel to write me at gm@hotelmetdelhi.com whenever next you plan to come to New Delhi.

Will look forward to welcome you again

With Regards

A nice hotel which is centrally located. However I feel they must review their glass wall between the room and the bathroom which is quite a see through.Not a very comfortable situation when you are sharing the room with other family members including kids.We actually had to tell the kids to look the other way while elders were bathing. But, apart from that, all in all a very good hotel.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

We booked this hotel on recommendation from our travel agent (who we will not be using again) for our last 2 night in India as a bit of a treat. Our first choice was the ITC Maurya which was sadly fully booked. The Met in theory is 5* but sadly with no personality, the service is either completely over the top or robotic and inadequate.

Check in was fairly seamless but 10 minutes after being in the room we spotted the friendly Met resident mouse. Upon informing the house keeping staff, we changed rooms but the thought remained. On the subject of vermin, the "swimming pool" was more like a bird bath, or should I say a toilet for pigeons.

THE GOOD: Bathroom was good, good toiletries and trendy decor.

THE BAD: We ate in the restaurant once, the food was below par, under spiced (despite requesting it to be spiced) and under seasoned and very expensive for the quality. Upon letting the waiter know about this, there was an army of staff at our table, this included, 2 waiters, the chef and a manager offering to replace the food (we had waited long enough for the food so refused). The reaction was completely over the top and embarassing, a simple apology and adjustment to the bill would have sufficed. The situation was however corrected with one of the meals being removed from the bill, eventually.

AND THE UGLY: I was staying at the Met with my white, English boyfriend. I am a female British Asian of Indian descent. Now I'm not sure which of the afore mentioned elements motivated the staff at the Met to behave the way that they did, but I am sad to say that I was continually ignored whilst my boyfriend was greeted in a friendly and courteous manner. This treatment was beyond rude as often I would be just in front of, or beside my boyfriend, even to the point where seats were pulled out for "Sir" in the hotel restaurants while I was left to get on with it myself. I must take this opportunity to say that not every staff member behaved this way, the friendly doorman always greeted me.

This place needs an injection of personality and a human touch from the staff to get it to average, not to mention pest control. It's laughable that this place has 5* status but then again that down to boxes ticked, unfortunately not the right ones.

Room Tip: Don't. Go somewhere else

This is a pretty good place for a base in Delhi, even if the restuarants are pricier than they should be (no problem, there's a nice new place opened up right next door!). Clean, smart and spacious rooms, good buffet breakfast, and a refreshing pool outside: just shoo away the birds! Ideal location for all the obvious New Delhi sites, some even just a few minutes walk away.
