New Delhi, a city of history and legend, is home to the famed Red Fort Palace and the Yamuna, one of the most revered rivers in Hinduism. Our city centre hotel is set amidst the most alluring shopping and entertainment districts in New Delhi. The hotel is approximately 30 minutes away from Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) and five minutes from the New Delhi railway station.

Le Méridien New Delhi is situated two kilometres from Rashtrapati Bhawan, the home of the President of India, the Presidential Palace, Parliament House, and the commercial hub of Connaught Place.

Stimulating experiences are ensured by our 358 guest rooms’ chic interiors as well as our conference venues’ state-of-the-art technology.
Reception service, breakfast but very crowded hotel ambience is very good
They promise to send fruits but did not sent
We are non-smokers and we were given a smoking room first (I did not mention while booking). They quickly changed the room to a non-smoking room after we asked for it. It was very quick and easy process. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. They bring bottled water at least twice a day, which was great.
After our check out, we asked for a taxi with a meter to take us to New Delhi train station. We got on the taxi and left the hotel. Then we realized that the driver did not start the meter. We asked him to open it but driver made excuses like it is not working, we don't need it, etc. And he took 300 rupee for 10 min. drive. We were very clear on that we wanted a taxi with meter, and the taxi driver that the hotel is working with was not willing to use it. What we expect from a 5 star hotel is trust. I should be able to trust the services they provide and this includes the people they work with. What happened is something normal in Delhi but I was disappointed because the hotel I trusted assigned us to someone not trustworthy.
Pool, lobby, location, staff
