Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi Airport Review

Posted on September 10, 2018 by in Club Carlson / Radisson, Hotel Reviews

The Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi Airport used to be my go-to hotel during my work trips to New Delhi. At the time, the international airport felt more like a tiny regional airport and there were more cows on the roads than cars. The Radisson Blu just outside the airport facilities in New Delhi was the first Radisson in all of India and took its five-star principle seriously.

We used a prepaid cab from the airport that runs for just $4 to the hotel (the drive is less than 5 minutes). Alternatively, you can try to get an Uber or walk a bit and find a tuk-tuk. The metro also stops at Aerocity and from there it is a 15-minute walk (that can be very crowded though).

Check-in was very friendly and efficient. The agent also offered to upgrade us to a business class room that faced away from the busy freeway right outside. The hotel rooms are noise-insulated but those pesky truck horns can be overwhelming.

I really liked the room – it was spacious, well cooled down (completely inaudible) and the WiFi would come in at 10 Mbit in seconds.

There was also a rain shower in the huge bathroom and the bed was as comfortable as it gets. I really could not have asked for a much better room setup.

The hotel features a rather small common area (lobby, coffee shop and restaurant). We went to have dinner there and found it decent, though quite expensive for average quality ($20 per person without alcohol).

We liked breakfast much more, which had a number of high-quality items (e.g. the ready-made waffles). The spread looked a bit sad but was better than the images suggest.

This hotel now competes with a number of new hotels in the so-called Aerocity – the Andaz, JW Marriott, Novotel, ibis and Holiday Inn – but if you find it for a comparable rate, go for the Radisson Blu Plaza New Delhi – it is a well-oiled machine and churns out great stays.
