“Hotel is fine, location terrible with corrupt hotel taxi service. Beware”
Reviewed 17 February 2010

The Good Points:
Very clean hotel with modern furniture. Evening hotel food was fine and gym was useful. Very prompt service from hotel staff.

Bad Points:
The location is terrible. The only taxi service available/ that the hotel is willing to book for you is massively overpriced and corrupt.

The hotel is off a main highway in a very dilapidated area. You can't walk to anything from it and wouldn't want to. This means you have to rely on the hotel car/taxi service and they REALLY take advantage of this. They charged 500rp for a 15 minute car trip, the "boss" of the taxi service is rude and goes back on pre-arranged prices. We booked a car for a full day and this included a journey to Agra and back. When we picked up the car in the morning, our driver had a "friend" with him who proceeded to talk loudly on his mobile for the full 4 hour drive to Agra and on the way back, drove us to a friend's marble factory which was uncomfortable and irritating. They also made us pay for "tourist taxes" on the way there as extras. On the way back home (3pm in the afternoon) we asked to be driven to a shopping centre to pick up a top and use the cashpoint. We were refused, saying it wasn't included in the price and they would charge another £10 to do so (the trip was already costing us nearly £80). Unbelievable and this really soured our experience.

This was a stop gap choice on the last 2 days of our Golden Triangle Tour. At 120$ Quite High for the location. However, the hotel is good. Service is good and prompt. These are not your typical rooms, but studio apartment of suite like rooms. Room has Ikea-type furniture. Quite neat and large. Food is good.

The hotel is difficult to find as it is not very well sign posted and its entrance is off the back of the street from the main road. The Mehrauli Gurgaon Road is a long, busy road and taxi drivers may not know this place, as it is relatively new. The accomodation is ideal for business travellers as the rooms are serviced apartments and perfectly equipped for working-on-the-go. However, there really isn't much in the area at walking distance. You will be pushed to flag a taxi off the main road. The hotel's taxi service is expensive and unreliable. You may be stuck at night to find anywhere to eat and drink without some transport. The hotel doesn't serve alcohol.

This is a comparatively new property on MG road in south delhi and is pretty near to gurgaon. Its located slightly off the main road and has many apartments located around a central hall with a tree which is fun to sit around.

The apartments are a good option for long term stay as well as they have amenities like cutlery, microwave oven etc. Also a market for purchasing vegetables etc is a short distance away.

enjoy the indoor pool and sauna/steam on location. Look at booking through makemytrip for possibility of getting a good deal.

  • Liked — The tree in the cental atrium and the indoor pool/sauna/steam
  • Disliked — Its location- is in a run down area

what can i say... drive through the area it is situated in and you are thinking the worst.. but turn the corner and the Avalon comes out of nowhere! Fantastically designed hotel with great rooms and good food! Gym and pool is always a nice addition which the avalon certainly does not lack. Only one quarm i can think of and that was the shower door not fitting properly leading to a large puddle of water on the bathroom floor. Apart from that... Amazing.
