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 café 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.

India First Timers

"Breakfast was good with a wide variety of options. Our room, although spacious and well equipped, was quite noisy being on the ground floor by the car park, especially when there was an evening celebration occurring. The hotel is within walking distance of the metro system and Lodhi Gardens( a peaceful haven from the chaos of Old Delhi) The staff were helpful. "

Mrs. Lesley De Quartel
"A great introduction to Delhi Straight from the plane to The Claridges. Despite the very late hour staff took time to greet us and welcome us to Delhi. The room was very spacious with a seating area as well as a huge bed. The bathroom was well equipped with robes and slippers - handy as all the floors are tiled. Breakfast was a buffet with both Indian and continental choices. As our train left early evening we were also able to return to the hotel despite having checked out in the morning to wait for our driver. It is located quite a way out of the city centre so provides a peaceful place to regroup after the city experience."
"We enjoyed our stay at this atmospheric hotel. The Sevilla restaurant was great and had a lovely ambience, even though it wasn't very Indian!"
Mrs. Dawn Robinson
"The staff were lovely. The Sevilla was a lovely evening out."
