Shangri-La's Eros Hotel
Travel Blogs from New Delhi
After an awesome breakfast at the hotel, we headed off with Nitin the tour guide to see Jama Mosque followed by a brief view of the Red Fort and the memorial site for Mahatma Gandhi. In the afternoon we saw yet another mosque at Qutab Minar - the medieval tower of victory, and ending the day at Humayun's Tomb ..
Lots of great stuff today, we're exhausted ..
Let me start by saying Hinduism is not a religion but a philosophy. The greeting is similar to most Asian countries, your two hands facing together and a slight bow. "Namaste" means hello, goodby, thank you and other things. Hindus believe the symbolism of the two hands together along with Namaste is greeting with their heart (left hand) and soul ( …
It is now 5:00 pm on Tuesday and we have checked into our hotel in Delhi. We are staying at the Shangri La-Eros and we are very impressed. The room is large and clean with a huge bed. We have a wonderful view. We are now waiting for our luggage to be brought up. The rest of the evening we are on our own. I think we will have dinner at one of the …
1:20 pm. We are currently at JFK waiting for our 3:10 flight to New Delhi. We're having a drink at Tigin Irish Pub. I have a friend who can find a taco truck anywhere he goes. We can always find an Irish Pub. We have seen several people with the Friendly Planet tag on their luggage. Looks like it's going to be a good group. Today is a beautiful day …
Arrived back in India for the first time since early November. It is just as I remember, which is oddly comforting, a little nerve racking and always exhilarating. I arrived at the Gandhi Airport to find out the my meet and greet was not scheduled and my phone wasn't working. So I had to brave this one on my own. After being in New York for the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Shangri-La's Eros Hotel New Delhi
Best Hotel in India by far
I stayed in the shangri la in november. it is by far one of the nicest hotels i have stayed in .. the decor, the ambience and the friendly staff are exaclty what you need when you are travelling to india. I was made to feel like a King and got the best service. The food at the oriental restaurant was immpressive but the 24hr cafe could use a little improvements. The room standards are great and the plasmas really give tht extra kick you need . All in all it was a great experience.
The best in Delhi
I stayed at the ShangriLa in December 05 for 4 nights and I have to say its one of the best, if not THE best hotel in New Delhi. I have earlier stayed at many hotels in New Delhi and the service, rooms and even the food at ShangriLa is uncomparable. The ambience of the Pan-Asian restaurant is very good and the sushi and the appetizers are to die for. The lobby bar is an ideal place to kick back and relax during the evenings.
The Spa is beautifully made and provides a large variety of services. Also, the coffee shop has an amazing breakfast. Being a new hotel it provided state of the art services for all my business needs. All in all ShangriLa, more than lived up to its billing.
Thought it was great
I only stayed for one night but I thought the hotel was excellent. The check in was a little slow but we were well taken care of. The rooms were great and the bed was heaven!!! Dinner and breakfast were very good - a nice choice of tasty foods with good service.
Service - huge room for improvement
I stayed at the hotel for a day in November 2005. The staff although appearing enthusiastic had difficulty giving a top class hotel feel. The sytsems were pathetic. I did not get my room key when I checked in...was told that the systems had conked and the keys will be given in 10 mins...for 45 mins i was holed up in the room, waiting...after 2 reminders got it. Secondly, the concierge took more than 30 mins to deliver the luggage while checking in. While checking out I lugged it myself...at the lobby no one even ventured to help...the staff could not keep the bills ready even after I had my breakfast and come back...they messed up the billing (I was not to be charged for the BF, as per the package negotiated with my co.) I dont think it has class...only the amenities are brand new
I stayed at the Shangri La in Delhi as part of a group on the new American Airlines innaugural flight. Granted, we were well taken care of by the property and the airline (so as to keep us happy), but i enjoyed this property for a number of reasons.
Spent four nights at the Shangri-La while attending a conference in Delhi. Had high expectations since Shangri-la is a premier luxury hotel brand in Asia. The overall decor is sleek and modern, the room was spacious and the staff was enthusiastic and eager to please. But the hotel still seems to be experiencing teething problems. My room card conked out on two occassions, the concierge neglected to inform me that the taxi I had ordered was waiting for a while, the air-coniditioning swung from freezing cold to oppressively hot (and had to be repaired twice), room service sent me a cheese omelette when I asked for a mushroom omelette and I got someone else's order while dining at the hotel's oriental resaurant. These are minor issues in isolation but cumulatively show that the service is muddled. This might be fine at a regular hotel but when you are paying top dollar you expect better. Disappointed.
I stayed at the Shangri la New Delhi for 4 nights from 7th Nov to 10th Nov in a King Deluxe Room at the rate of US$249++ per night. During this period, it was difficult to book a hotel room in any of the other established hotels like The Imperial at a comparable rate as I was advised that there were 2 big events happening in New Delhi that week, and a lot of the hotel rooms were sold out.
Luxury amongst the Chaos
Great hotel with good service and fine amenities.
Only complaint was the astronomical cost of the internet connection charges which I thought was going to be complimentary.
Bad services poor ambience
Well it was a bed experiance as hotel is newly opened so every thing is in dis order staff was very help full but still in a construction stage as tehre is a noice in a room in a day time
Not quite 5 star - yet
I stayed at the hotel on business for 5 nights, which was my first stay in India. Although the hotel has only recently opened, most facilities appeared to be working well and the staff were plentiful and very prompt and helpful. Only minor complaints, such as poor lifts, absent club lounge facilities and the choice of eating, was limited to just the one (excellent) restaurant.
The hotEl is well located for any sightseeing and shopping, some of which are within 10 minutes walk or a short car ride.
