Reviewed 24 April 2011

It was our first visit to India. Before we started our trip, we had received from many people the same advice, which is to be utmost cautious when consuming any food or drink in this country. We were told stories about people getting sick from the food they ate in their hotels. Now we have experienced it first hand and we can say those people who had such terrible experiences must not have stayed with the Oberoi group.

In our journey to visit the Taj Mahal, we had stayed at 2 Oberoi hotels, the Oberoi New Dehli and the Oberoi Amarvilas. We first stopped at the Oberoi New Dehli, which is a nice hotel. Standard rooms are spacious and very comfortable. In the evening of our arrival, a welcome dinner was prepared just for our small group and it was a buffet of Indian food. Presentation was very nice and everything was so delicious, we ended up eating freely and forgot about the fact that it was actually our first meal in India. Breakfast at the Threesixty restaurant was also good but our waiter took our order wrong twice and he wanted us to take the food even though we did not order. We had lunch again at the same restaurant and the food at the buffet was high in quality and the presentation was again wonderful. We even tried some of the cold appetizers including sushi and sashimi and no one in our group felt ill afterwards.

After staying with the 2 Oberoi hotels, we are interested to check out other properties of the Oberoi group. Oh yeah, we definitely recommend this hotel to people visiting New Dehli.

I stayed here for two nights in March 2011 and found the hotel very comfortable. The pool and gardens are very nice with personal call buttons and little bottles of sun lotion etc.

The spa was very nice with an excellent massage offered.

I would return again without hesitation

Our say at The Oberoi was all too short, just overnight before we headed to Agra but our pleasant experience started with reservations. An amazing lady called Mitali at Oberoi central reservations had the patience of a saint as our last minute trip chopped and changed for a variety of reasons. She was always utterly charming and made sure that everything worked smoothly.

Kartikeya, the Concierge at the Oberoi, New Delhi was equally impressive. He sorted out our train tickets and transfers by e-mail and made me feel totally at ease arriving in India for the first time, with 4 children in tow.

Once we were met at the airport, we knew we were in good hands. Our trollies were taken off our hands and we were whisked away to our awaiting cars and brought to the sanctuary of the Oberoi. Check-in was seamless and before we knew it we were tucked up in bed maximising our precious moments of sleep before rising for the early train to Agra.

Once again, everything was taken care of in the morning. Easy check out, smooth transfer and invaluable help at the train station. We were provided with copious amounts of Oberoi food, neatly packed in disposable picnic boxes for our journey. A wonderful hotel representative negotiated with porters and did not leave our side until we were seated in our carriage and assured him that we were in good shape, having checked that all of our bags were on board.

If I have to be picky, the rooms were nice but didn't stand out particularly, but that could have been the tiredness speaking. We look forward to returning to see Delhi properly and will definitely spend more time at The Oberoi next time.

Stayed here for a weekend in February after a business trip. Oberoi is very well appointed, though felt a little dated. Very close to the train to Agra, which was very convenient.

Room was very nice, though there was only one free electrical outlet. Best staff service I've ever seen.

Restaurant in the lobby was very good, 360 I think it's called.

Would recommend to those staying in Delhi, though the airport transfer is pricey at US$80 or so each way.

Oberoi, New Delhi is a hotel for business travellers! At this property one does not experience the buzz of marriages and receptions. Apparently the management does not allow this.
This leads the ambience to a very upmarket feel.
The footfalls in this hotel also are from the upper "Jantree" - senior enterepreneurs / diplomats / professionals.
The food outlets are brilliant and the chinese is very good.
Coffee shop is well appointed and the guest rooms are clean and fresh. Butler service is good and courtous.
A little steep on the pocket but I guess this is what one needs to pay for the atmosphere and the comfort.
