Worth for Money. Fantastic Hotel for anyone!”

I chose Classic Diplomat mainly because of the Location, good reviews and the unique name of the hotel. My decision was right as the hotel is very good for my stay. Rooms have all the essential facilities and Bathroom also perfectly fine. I had both Dinner and breakfast from the hotel restaurant and that experience also great. Restaurant staff is very friendly and their service is excellent. Food also worth for the money paid and you do not need to go to another restaurant to have your meals. This hotel is an excellent choice. I have all the rights to say it as I was staying 4 days at nearby Holiday Inn Aerocity which is a 5 star hotel (my business visit stay) and then I chose Classic Diplomat for my personal stay. I do not feel a big change coming to Classic Diplomat from a 5 star hotel. Only issue with the hotel is there is not much parking for your cab. Other than that everything about the hotel is good. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who like to stay close to airport.

A'OK”

My first time in India, not a 5-star traveler but on a budget and I was a bit nervous about my whole trip. I found the Classic Diplomat quite acceptable and have no complaints. Once inside, I felt clean, I felt safe and could sleep well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fine with Indian and Western options. I only stayed one night and then it was easy to get a return trip to the airport. A taxi outside offered a price of 300 Rupees to take me to the airport and I think was as close to an honest deal that I was going to get, not being a local. It cost me 500 Rupees to get to the hotel from the airport. As other reviewers stated, there's a variety of shops, stalls outside the hotel and plenty of taxis, tuk tuks and rickshaws to take you anywhere you want to go.

Best Low Cost Airport Hotel in Delhi”

Staff, Food, Comfortable Bed

I am a frequent traveler. I was in Delhi only for 1 night for a business meeting with a morning flight out. I stayed at Hotel Classic Diplomat because of the reviews and free shuttle to the airport. (I hate arguing with taxi hacks). This was absolutely the best experience I have had at any budget airport hotel in any city in more than 30 countries I have visited. I cannot give a high enough recommendation of this hotel for a quick overnight stay. I saw no reason to spend for the 4 or 5 star hotel I usually stay in, and I am happy I made that decision.

Very good hotel near airport”

Location is near to airport, just about 8-10 mins from T3, IGI, good in hotel dining & very good cleanliness.

After lot of research, I booked this hotel online & I must say I made right choice. The location of hotel in terms of proximity to airport is fantastic. Just about 8-10 mins drive to T3,IGI. The staff here is very polite & friendly. The Hotel manager,is very friendly & will be happy to help you even for minor things. There is free wi-fi in hotel & connectivity is very good. The restaurant in the hotel serves good food (I am pure veggie) & this was a plus point for me as I didn't wanted to waste time going to some other hotel as my schedule was jam packed. I flew abroad from Delhi & returned back when in India to same hotel & then proceeded to my domestic flight. I had some meetings in Delhi for which hotel arranged me a cab for reasonable price. They also offered airport drop for Rs.300/- which is reasonable. We just need to inform them 10 mins in advance for a cab. Last month, my friend had booked a premium hotel is Delhi but he got stuck in traffic & missed his flight despite starting early, so I was searching for something good & this was it. Overall, I am pleased with this hotel, its staff & food. The rooms are also clean & come with stuff like toothbrush & all, which was actually a surprise for me as I didn't expected it. If you want to catch early morning flight or need a hotel close to airport, this one is for you.

Free wi fi - good size room - good price in the area

we stayed for 2 nights. we took taxi by booking through delhi police service counter. this counter is on left side just prior to exiting the airport. cost was rupee. it is about 10 minutes ride from taxi stand. hotel is on the street with many other hotels. hotel had a large sign and we found it easily. staff was friendly but kept changing every 3 to 4 hours so need to make sure who you talk to about specific cost etc. room was better than expected and had all what we saw in other reviews prior to booking this hotel. free airport drop was honored as per booking. we rented a car for whole day which is 8 hours for rupee. we were told at the booking time that it will be 100 rupee additional per hour for extra hours. when we returned from akshardham trip we had car for 10 hours and staff on duty asked us for 300 rupee per hour extra. i made him to ask morning staff by calling him and after the phone call, he agreed for 100 rupee per hour charge for extra hours. besides, this our stay was very nice and we will definitely stay again.

Very nice but NO airport drop-off ”

The hotel is very nice and very close to airport. We booked 2 rooms which included the airport drop-off and breakfast. We asked the staff for a 7 seater car for airport drop-off and hotel staff asked us to pay for taxi when it was already included in the booking. In the end we had to pay Rs.250 extra for taxi. Even 3 months earlier, when we booked 2 rooms in the same hotel, we arranged the airport pickup with hotel as we were arriving at airport from Australia at 11pm in freezing cold winter night with very young kids but there was no one there from hotel at the airport to pick us up. Then hotel staff starts making all kind of excuses and we had to hunt for taxi in midnight with young children. In nutshell, if you book this hotel, please organise your own taxi.

Early check in charge....Really???”

Food, Cleanliness, Friendly staff

Overall, the stay at the hotel was very pleasant; the staff were friendly, food was very good and the room was good. Overall ambiance of the hotel was good. Couple of drawbacks: the WiFi at the hotel was slow and unreliable at best. The hotel also charged 50% of the room rate for early check-in which I found very strange, especially since the hotel didn't seem to be full and the room was available anyway. In my previous experiences hotels have been quite accommodating and have not charged for early check in if the room was available. I feel the hotel should change this policy or at least be a little flexible since the check-in times (12 noon!) are not convenient for guests flying in to Delhi earlier and it's rather difficult to kill several hours till noon to check in after a long flight.

good value for money, alternative to big chains”

close to the new aerocity metro station, accepted Agoda booking with no hassle, had good wifi and printer in lobby

Hotel was very good value for money, room clean, not much of a view, but fine for sleeping. Plumbing worked and wifi was good and fast. Decent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Great location, although the Hotel does not advertise this, it has not yet woken up on its web site to the recent opening of the new metro to airport. You can take airport express metro from airport to Aerocity, first stop in direction to town centre. Metro is new, clean and not crowded, just be ready for airport style security screening. Token costs 40 Rupees. Just outside of Aerocity metro exit you look up and left across the elevated highway and you can see a large sign with the name of the hotel, across the elevated highway. Just a 5 minute walk across a cricket field and under the elevated highway, taking care how you walk, and you are there, without the hassle of haggling for a taxi and its nerve shattering driving. Careful about using online maps to find the hotel, the Agoda map has it in the wrong location, and Google maps does not have a label for the hotel , but can locate it correctly if you search by name. It is close to Hotel le season, which is liby name on Google Maps, although that hotel is shown as being between the lanes of Highway 8, which it is not. There is large fancy shopping mall with upmarket restaurants at Vasant Kunj, 15 mins from the Hotel by autorickshaw.

The manager here is nothing short of a hero. My friend misplaced his wallet and phone, thinking he’d lady it in the taxi. The manager here contacted the airport and miraculously tracked down the taxi.

First, I was misunderstood about the hotel location because the map in agoda website is not accurate. The hotel is not right next to the Airport Express but you did have to walk across the road under Delhi-Gurgaon Expy to reach the hotel, where you could find other hotels in half the price. The stay was ok. Although the room was quite a bit dusty and hot water didn't work properly, the staff was very helpful and efficient. The hotel was very quiet, good for a long night sleep. There is also a restaurant serving Chinese food for someone who is not familiar with Indian plates.
