The Maidens Hotel, Delhi
Roy Davies, Founder of World Discovery
“The Maidens was the very first hotel I stayed at in India, back in the 1970s. I've been back many times since then and have always found the staff welcoming and friendly, and the food (especially in the Curzon Restaurant) of an excellent standard. If you are seeking luxury, then the Maidens is probably not for you. It's a bit spartan and its décor is a little out of date, but most people quickly become fond of its pleasant atmosphere and personal touches. The rooms, many of which have a separate sitting room area as well as a bedroom and bathroom, are bigger than you'll get at most of the top corporate hotels in Delhi, and most people appreciate this. ”
The Maidens Hotel is one of Delhi's oldest hotels, built in 1903, and has retained its colonial charm and architecture. Its spacious rooms with high ceilings are unique when compared to the box-sized rooms of many modern hotels. Set amidst eight acres of lush gardens, shady trees and tennis courts, it escapes the noise of the main city, but remains within easy access by car to some of the most magnificent Mughal monuments, and famous shopping centre Chandni Chowk with its quaint bazaars and meandering lanes.
The hotel has a small coffee shop with inside and outside seating, the Curzon Restaurant with its nostalgic atmosphere of British India and the days of the Maharajahs (pictured below), and an elegant small bar. There is a large free-form outdoor swimming pool in the hotel gardens.
The hotel is owned and managed by the prestigious Oberoi Hotel Group.
