The Claridges

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Deluxe    

The Claridges overview

Located in the heart of the city, The Claridges has been a landmark in Lutyens Delhi since the 1950's. Set on 3 acres of land, the hotel is a low-rise building with only three floors. It is within close proximity of the business district, ministries, diplomatic missions, shopping & cultural centres and historical landmarks.

We like this place because it has style and character. It's not stuck in the 1950's but uses some of the best gracious design features of that time, carefully updated to modernity.

Claridges has several different restaurants including Jade, a superb Chinese restaurant, and Sevilla with a Spanish and Italian theme. My personal favourite is Dhaba which is their North-Indian wayside cuisine restaurant, complete with a local truck embedded in the wall as part of the décor. Yes, they've brought a roadside cafe into a 5 star hotel!

The rooms at The Claridges are amongst the most spacious in Delhi and are a blend of the classic and contemporary. The hotel offers a wide choice of accommodation ranging from well-appointed spacious deluxe rooms to suites, some with their own private terrace. The guest rooms overlook the swimming pool, landscaped gardens and the surrounding diplomatic avenue.


Open: The Claridges is open all year.

Location: The Claridges is located in a quiet neighbourhood of New Delhi a short distance from the centre and close to the business district, historical landmarks and shops. Driving time from the international airport is 35 minutes and from the domestic airport 30 minutes.

Rooms: The hotel has a total of 140 rooms and suites comprising deluxe rooms, cabana rooms, premiers rooms and deluxe suites. All are air conditioned and have TV, phone, Wi-Fi internet access, tea and coffee makers, minibar, safe, desk and en-suite bathroom with marble walls and floor and a glass shower cubicle. There is 24-hour room service.

Activities: Sightseeing in and around Old and New Delhi, shopping, relaxing at the hotel.

Snacks can be enjoyed in the garden. There is an outdoor swimming pool and a health club and a beauty salon.

Alex Burgess. Tribes

"A beautiful, classic modernised heritage hotel.  Spacious, well located for access to the sights of Delhi and set in lovely grounds with a very homely feel to it and extremely friendly and attentive staff."

R Hughes
"Excellent service, very warm welcome and nothing too much trouble for the staff. Room very comfortable and good room sizes. In-house Indian restaurant most enjoyable, and always a good sign when frequented by locals. For another dining treat, try the Italian restaurant - it was a cool night when we were there and inside a log fire was burning away, and outside the trickle of ponds and water. Very romantic."
Vincent Gentle
"Excellent in every regard"
Kay Tremellen-Frost
"perfect for the first couple of days while getting acclimatized. An 'international' hotel but just what we needed. Food was excellent."
Jillian Taylor
"Food was a disappointment more like English take away than Indian in their 'street food' restaurant. Bar a bit sleazy. Room excellent. Provided packed breakfast for 4.00am pick up. Staff friendly and helpful."
