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 dÃ©cor. Yes, they've brought a roadside cafÃ© 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 Luxury Suites, some with their own private terrace. The guest rooms overlook the swimming pool, landscaped gardens and the surrounding diplomatic avenue.

A great opportunity to view tigers in the wild as well as see the iconic Taj Mahal - a majestic combination!
A rich mix of the north's highlights - from the Taj to the ghats and from tigers to palaces.
The very best of the north combined with a relaxing beach stay - perfect!
"Pleasant, convenient hotel, slightly faded, which was fine for our short stay."
