“Classic five star experience”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Visited this hotel after very long to attend a day workshop, was pleasantly surprised to see it completely renovated. The lobby was beautiful and i could a lot of young smiling faces. Also visited a colleague's room and it was renovated really nicely. Good food and good conference set up. A classic five star experience.

If you are looking for a place with less traffic and excellent ambiance then look no further. This is a place where you can divulge into all your business activities without any disturbance from the outside crowd of Delhi

Room Tip: Rooms in the annexure building are more comfortable

This is one of the few hotels where most of the conferences and seminars held, so staying here is as good as working from home. Centrally located so location is great about this place.
The staff is excellent and helpful. The food is something that can be improved, but the room rates are really low compared to other five stars around which is a big plus point. Overall service was good and no chance to complain about

Dear Guest,

Greetings from The Ashok!

Let me thank you for staying with us and giving us an opportunity to serve you!

Indeed, the proximity of the hotel to Parliament House, President House, North & South Avenue, most of the embassies, monuments, museums, and downtown market etc; makes The Ashok a perfect choice to stay!

The hotel undoubtedly is centrally located & is an embodiment of hospitality offering best convention facilities with well-appointed 550 rooms, nine dining options and seven banquet venues with additional three outdoor venues under one roof.

Regarding food, your feedback has been shared with our Executive chef and Coffee shop Manager for necessary action.

I look forward for an opportunity to serve you!

I was here in Dec 13', attending one of the global industry meets. My stay was of 1 days, wherein it majorly constituted of meetings one after the other, in different suites. I sincerely believe the suites should have been more spacious. However, the convention centre was really good & one of the best I have seen in this country. Food again was amazing! Wish to stay here sometime in the future.

We stayed during this winter holidays and was very friendly.
We asked for a bucket and a mug in the morning and left for sight seeing and when we returned n the evening were surprised to see it in the bath room.
Overall service was good and no chance to complain about.
Will recommend to family and friends.

I stay at this place as it hosts many conferences & seminars and it is convenient to stay in the same hotel as the conference. It is barely a five star with low maintenance, untrained staff, bad food and bad service.
On the positive side it has low room rates, probably the largest conference room in Delhi enough to accommodate 1400 persons, improving standards of cleanliness (I see the difference year on year), excellent location, lawns etc. Convenient location.

Room Tip: I prefer the extension wing rooms

Dear Guest,

Greetings from The Ashok!

Thank you for sparing your valuable time and sharing the feedback with us.

As the capital's most magnificent banquet venue, the Ashok caters to every mood and style, from an intimate sit-down dinner for 20 to a gathering of 3000 persons. The hotel has a wide range of venues from the Convention Hall to a formal Boardroom and also a Banquet hall, Party room, Swimming Pool Lawns and landscaped gardens.

I am glad to see your laudatory remarks about the hotel but at the same time distressed to know that your stay was unfortunately; not upto your expectations. Your comments are taken in a constructive manner and will be studied and improved upon.

I look forward to welcome you again!

Nice hotel to stay. One of the oldest hotels in Delhi managed by ITDC. Very wide corridors, royal look, but the customer care to be improved. Staff response is poor. Veg Buffet menu is limited. Free Wifi, very useful. There is a problem with the swipe key of the room. Could not be solved during my stay. Budget in our limits.
