The Manor Review

In one of Delhi's wealthiest residential neighborhoods, this is Delhi's premier boutique hotel with a stylish ultramodern interior, a nouvelle-Indian restaurant, and stunning, ultraprivate grounds. After dusk, lanterns soften the building's sharp lines, while inside soft tones—taupes and creams as well as white—complement feature walls in wood or stone. Guest rooms are fairly stark, accented by fresh flowers, and bathrooms are in dark marble; all but suites have showers only. Yoga and some massage services are also available.

    Nice hotel very hard to find

    Overall a nice hotel, but some problems when I stayed earlier this month. Cabbies can't find the location (on Delhi streets like most India streets buildings aren't numbered sequentially). When I arrived the hotel staff forgot their promise of a ride from the airport and then could not explain to my cabbie how to find the location on his cell phone. The one hotel staff member on duty seemed to think my 2 hour ordeal to arrive from the airport driving in circles was not her problem. She complained that the hotel driver had been too busy to pick me up. To leave the hotel, you have to have a cab called. Once it took 5 minutes for the cab to arrive. Once it took 30 minutes. Food at the hotel is good but incredibly overpriced, even by the standards of Indian hotels catering to Westerners. I think I'll stay somewhere else next time.

    Nice Property But Hard to Find

    Another Delhi hotel where our pre-arranged (and re-confirmed) transfer didn't show up at the airport (although the hotel claimed that someone was there waiting for us). We took a pre-paid taxi, again easy and inexpensive to arrange, but again, the taxi driver could not find the location. He was able to locate Friends Colony West (be sure to say West), but not the actual street. We had to call on the kindness of strangers, and then to call the hotel itself, before we could actually find the location. This is an attractive property, with a nice bar and restaurant (reasonable and plentiful food), free computer access, lending library, and some green open space to walk around outside. The rooms were on the smallish side, but we had just booked a basic room, nothing more. Large and well-equipped bathrooms, with hairdryers and some toiletries. Flat screen TV with DVD player, which we were unable to get to work. Lots of instructions which we followed to the letter, but without success. We were unable to use the free wi-fi access in our room, either. So I would have to say that compared with the Hotel Palace Heights, this was a bit overpriced (about $250 per night). Still a fine, reasonable choice in Delhi, and with the ability to walk outside on the hotel property, perhaps a better choice if one is spending multiple nights. Did not partake of the (included) breakfast due to an early departure, but there was a complimentary fruit plate, chocolates, and bottled water in our room.
