Just finished another Very enjoyable long stay at Corus in New Delhi. Superb central location right on impressive Connaught Place and adjacent to Rajiv Chowk Metro, giving fast access to all Delhi. This is a great central, medium price hotel. The GM Mr Satish is to be warmly congratulated on running a very efficient and attentive hotel. Excellent friendly service and definitely the 'best room' is the place to be, with a wide view across Connaught Place. But even the inner rooms, some of which do not have windows, are worth the price for a good location and reasonable room rate.
Inclusive breakfast is simple, but very adequate, and can be quite creative if you request items straight from the kitchen. (Cockroaches need to be minimised though! But this is India. Don't come if you dislike unexpected excitement).
In my opinion, the main negative in this hotel is the restauant drinks pricing in the evening. "A tot" can cost an eye-watering 10x times the cheapest outside price, in a very nearby bar, which can double the price of a pleasant dinner! So the hotel drinks policy prices itself out of the dinner market for a thirsty and budget visitor. This is compensated by the really excellent (but mis-named) English Family Restaurant managed by Mr Anil and 100 yards away on the side of 'A' Block. (The down-market "bar", Dhaba, is 300 yards and the shop with the bottles, for the price of a tot, 400 yards!).
You don't go to Delhi to be quiet and peaceful so the ability to listen to open air concerts without leaving the room could be an advantage...and they all finish early in the evening, giving way to the barking dogs. (The Council MUST do something about these animals who are already seem to well outnumber visiting tourists!)
The travel service in the hotel lobby is very helpful, and convenient if you are happy to pay a premium of up to 100% on your transport budget. Save this by using the excellent friendly service, and down-market cars, provided by Mr Shakeel 9797715958 at Royal Holiday Tours just 300 yards away on outer Circle
