The Suryaa New Delhi
Travel Blogs from New Delhi
The main thoroughfares of Delhi are wide with well-marked lanes, but it seemed as if the entire 35-40 million population of Delhi and surrounding areas had descended upon them simultaneously. No one pays much attention to the lane markings. Cars, elaborately decorated commercial trucks, three-wheeled Pedi cabs of all sizes, from the small brightly …

... marvel, with us not able to absorb enough of it, the pink sand stone and the marble carvings, each different, varied and captivating in itself. The central dome as well as the surrounding domes, each having its own design and mythological significance. The heart of the temple houses a 11 foot Swaminarayan statue, surrounded by carvings and stones glittering in all glory, literally taking our breath away. The temple also houses all of the hindu gods, each given ...
... were still selling the same things we bought last time, yet at higher prices and less room to bargain. This turned out to be a theme throughout the trip. It used to be that you would go up to a vender, ask the price, they would say something ridiculous, then you would half it and get close to a bargain. Now they seemed to say something some what reasonable, you would try to bargain, and they wouldn't budge. I'm not sure if it was because this time we were tourists instead of ...
... I am happy I came to China, the Great Wall, the Temples, the history is all very interesting, but I do not think I would come back. I found that for the most part the people are not very accommodating, other than the people at the hotels and the tour guides, everybody else is pretty obnoxious. From our experience, we have found that they are not too interested in trying to help you out, and they are very ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Suryaa New Delhi
Dirty, To be avoided in Dehli
we spent 3 night in this hotel.
First room was stinking, the reception personal was not even friendly or polite. The duty manager showed us a second room worse so we kept the first proposed (first floor). To have a normal renovated room at the 6th floor, management asked us 100 USD per night, which we refused.
The hotel is extremely noisy, the room has a door inside which was impossible to close. After calling the maintenance, somebody came with long nails to fix the issue. They couldn't find keys....
This hotel is not a 5 stars as advertised by the manager but a 3 stars that has to be seriously renovated and cleaned to reach international standards.
The Chinese restaurant, Sampan, is good with nice personal.
Loved it, very nice!!!!!!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights on the sixth floor which was fantastic!
The rooms were big and very clean with a lovely walk in shower.
The breakfast and evening meals were lovely and the entertainment on the seventh floor was brillant.
The staff were friendly and sorted out any quaries.
My wife and I stayed at the Surya Crowne Plaza Delhi twice on our Golden Triangle Taj Tour with Kuoni.
The first time we were on the third floor and the room was sub standard for a 5 star hotel, it was dirty and shabby with ill fitting furniture.
The next visit a week later we were given a room on the second floor which was even worse than the first visit.
When we checked out the clerk asked if the stay had been OK and when I told him NO he was not surprised as he commented
"you were on the second floor"
The public areas, bar, restaurant etc were all fine and apparently the 6th floor executive rooms are luxurious so suspect that is where your good reviews are coming from.
First hotel I stayed at in India. This is where I learned that all the hotel beds in India are firmer than my own at home. Very nice hotel, although I wouldn't bring a family here. Breakfast was more than adequate.
An okay expereince nothing great
Stayed for two nights in jan 2005.
The check in was quick. The rom was ok nothing great.
The airconditioning worked fine the first night but the room was awfully stuffy the next night . The engineering staff cam and remove the air filter from the ac. After that it was ok .
The bathroom had a draniange problem. While taking a shower the water flowed into the room. The hotel could certainlt refurbish th bathrooms atleast.
The breakfast was adequate with live ountets for omlettes.
There was card with a number given to order fruit baskets but when i called was told that we only give fruit baskets till 12 in the noon and since i called at around 2 or so i could not be given one at the moment.
Having read many positive reviews about this hotel, I was deeply disappointed in my experience there. We stayed twice at the hotel during our visit to India - at the beginning and at the end of our tour.
Would go again
had a wonderful stay, staff very friendly and helpful. good food, and a good choice at breakfast. very comfortable, clean and pleasant rooms.
Stayed here twice. And I would have no qualms about returning here (especially as they offer free drinking water in the rooms.)
A really memorable stay at a world class hotel
My room was a new premium room, which had superb furnishings and appoiuntemnts.
The staff at all levels were extremely welcoming, friendly and professional.
The hotel has an impressive scale of service and ameneties and provoded a welcome oasis of calm in the chaos of Delhi.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
Top class service and rooms
Stayed at this hotel in October 2004 for total of 4 nights. Rooms are very comfortable and beautifully clean. Staff are very professional and helpful. Drinks in bar are expensive - be careful of the prices. Would happily stay here again.
