4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2010

Somewhere many parts of the Hotel are not so well Designed.
There are some parts where they are Lacking something
But Room Service and the Food there was incredible.
Before that also i went there for attending a marriage.
The arrangements are quite good and unique things i have seen there.

As soon as I checked into this Hotel, I was engulfed by the sheer ambience, be at lobby or at room or at coffeshop. The room was elegant and spacious. Everything is very clean and tidy including bath accessories. The view from lobby is spectacular and the lobby is always abuzz with activities.Coffeshop is well appointed overlooking the swimming pool. Only the service is slightly below par though not always. All in all, a memorable experience.

While I was staying there was a fire in the hotel and the staff response was appalling and very worrying. The fire was in the basement but dense, choking smoke rose through the air conditioning and filled the top floor where my room was. There were no alarms, no evacuation and no assistance was offered.

It seems the hotel staff were trying to deal with the fire quietly and keep the fact it had happened a secret. I was only woken when one of our group raised an alarm and called our rooms to get us out. The smoke was so thick we had to crawl out with wet towels over our heads and emerged black with soot - all safe thankfully.

In reception the hotel staff were going about their business as normal, and still checking people in! No one was being accounted for, no alarms raised and others on our floor were not alerted or evacuated. We were not looked after in any way and had to ask just to get some water.

When we demanded to know what was going on we were told first it was a mattress fire, then a small electrical fire. Not with that amount of smoke. There were 7 fire tenders outside at one point and it was clearly a much bigger fire than anyone was admitting to.

It was put out and the hotel rapidly cleaned with no injuries that I know of. I later went down to the basement to see what had happened. The area was flooded and full of ash but I could see no more as security staff forcibly ejected me.

It's a nice enough hotel (but not worth 5 stars) ... but I don't think its safe. There is no doubt if a rapidly spreading fire had occurred they could not have coped or evacuated successfully.

I consider it as one of the best hotel in Delhi. Ambience is very good and best thing I liked about hotel is swimming pool. All staff are very friendly. Location is heart of the city. Cleanliness is outstanding. One additional good thing is their fitness center. I wish to visit there again.

This hotel was a disappointment from the checkin to the checkout. We had been staying in the Ashoka while attending an international conference, but the organisation had a long way to go. Although we had confirmed bookings, we ended up having to shift rooms three times before we were confirmed a room for the four days we spent. Staff smoking in corridors, general tardiness in cleaning and evening noisy building works is not what I would expect after paying a premium price for accomodation.
I stayed in the hotel for the convenience of attending a conference in the premises, but was left regretting staying elsewhere for a better deal.

I was one of the guest for a birthday party organised by my own friend. I never seen this kind of hotel before that. At the time of party the occupancy of the hotel seems less. The food was great there. There was drizzling out at that time. We saw the view from the balcony of one of the suits, it was a awesome view. You can imagine what i saw, a swimming pool with pure blueish water, many many green trees, its like a thick green belt and the drizzle. My experience during my stay of 5 hours was perfect as i never see this kind of hotel before.
