Having enjoyed a hotel in Mumbai and then the radisson blu in Delhi from the website and pictures I had seen I thought I was in for a treat at the ashok. I arrived and landed hard back to reality. It is nothing what it appears to be but it photographs beautifully. The reception looks grand and is full of staff that don't really know what is going on. Check in was smooth and then I was taken to the room. Terrible. I clearly am not stayin in one of the refurbished rooms. The view out the window was of satellite dishes and lots of them. The taps in the bathrooms have seen better days and the wifi is exceptionally slow and old style. This hotel in its day might have and probably was magnificent but it is not any longer. They need to spend some money and bring it up to date. I mean all other hotels of 5 star standards the basics of wifi is log in with room no and surname AND its very good. Here u have a very long username and password that's have to get every day from the reception and if you run more than one wifi device you need to ask for more. Anyhow, went in search of the Chinese and the Japanese restaurant that is advertised and alas they no longer exist ! One of the key reasons I booked the hotel was the variety of restaurants. The shops are over priced and nothing special. The lunch was well below par and the service if you can get the attention of the staff as all 17 were standing in a line watching the cricket.
Yes I won't be returning to the hotel and I won't be recommending it. It's expensive and not worth the money. There are plenty others that are far better value and superior in standard.
