Last went here about 35 years ago. The excellent on-site restaurant I remember serving huge Peshwari naans has had a makeover (called The Fronteir) - but a bit 80's in look (see photo). Good food though. Rooms are fine - but some quaint things. The bathrooms are modern but someone's eye was not straight (see photo). Nice shower head but...

I can only begin by saying that ' I FEEL SORRY' for this hotel. Such an architectural marvel in the heart of Lutyens' Delhi and in such terrible hands! I hope the management understands that the sheer size or the architecture of the hotel does not make it a luxury hotel. It takes a lot of hard work and responsibility...

This place needs to be avoided. Nothing is worth your money. I stayed because my company was paying for it. The rooms are pathetic with cheap chinese wood/electronics/bathroom fittings et al.. and none of them work. Laundry takes and hour + for pickup, room service is no better. The restaurants, gym and nightclub (stand alone-not part of the hotel are...

Hosted an International Conference at Convention hall with receptions at Banquet hall. All venues at the Hotel are unmatched with respect to grandeur. The managerial staff were very helpful in planning and conduct of the event. However the turnout and attitude of the lower staff needs improvement. The rooms although comfortable are not well maintained.

I stayed here in October 2015 for a conference. I can't comment on the cost of the hotel as the organizers paid for my stay. The hotel has certain things going for it - the large number of restaurants/bars and the diversity of food on offer; it has a great location not far from the major shopping areas and places...

I stayed in the Ashok for five nights. It was reasonably comfortable, the food was good, the amenities average, yet as a whole it didn't gel. There were far too many people doing far too little everywhere. There were around 7 staff on reception virtually all day, but they were nearly always too busy really to help. There were a...
