            Worn out place...”
            Lives from its past reputation; staff at reception desk reactive and sloppy. My usual places in Delhi fully booked I chose the Ashok this time given some meetings in nearby places. Arrived towards midnight and had another overseas flight to take the following night. Checkout was confirmed 2pm but wanted after another series of meetings to use gym and showers after checkout time of 2pm. Request was denied, reason: you can only use the hotel's facilities until 2pm, thereafter an additional day will be charged to you... I find this not worthy a so called 5* hotel; never experienced anything similar and such stubborn reception desk staff including managers in all my many travels in India. Is it because the place is government owned and staff not at all with a sense of good service quality or commercial interest? Clearly disappointing, will not stay there anymore.

            Our executive room is old and smelly. Even the bathroom looks creepy. Very, very, very slow internet connection too. All the staff are demanding for tips, they will look at you and really ask for tips until you give the money to them. If they are not content with the amount you give, they will ask for more. Worst staff in all the hotels I have been to. Will never go back and will definitely not recommend to friends and families. Not worth every cent.

            Pros: We were visiting Delhi for our visa appointment. This location was 5 minutes from the us consulate and they kept our luggage during our visa interview. This was great! Cons: The travel concierge proposed a very expensive cab ride(2600 inr) we just walked out and got a rickshaw for less than inr 1000 (from hotel to consulate and back and then to the airport) Overall a good stay and I’d recommend to everyone going for a visa appointment to stay with hote Ashoka

            Somewhat aged - could use a revamp. I was more concerned that they did not have completely aligned their system with check in/check out - as such they did not register that some rooms were occupied and walked on customers unexpectedly. Otherwise it is a reasonable option if you are in need of a base in Delhi for a night or two.

            Worst hotel in Delhi”
            Service in this hotel is the worst I've ever experienced. One, there is almost always no one who picks up the phone at reception. I had to wait for almost half an hour just for the phone call from my room to the reception to be answered. Second, I requested for early breakfast at 6 am. I think I spoke to 7 different people about my request and yet the next morning, the staff at the restaurant said nobody relayed the request to them. Hence, I did not get my early breakfast. Third, I ordered coffee at the restaurant. The coffee never came because the waiter just forgot about my order. Take note that it was not a busy time at the restaurant - in fact, I was the only client in the restaurant at that time! Hotel staff are very rude, unfriendly, ill-mannered and simply untrained. Ashok Hotel simply does not live up to the standards of a 5-star hotel. Take note that this hotel usually hosts a lot of conferences, so it's always busy, noisy and crowded!!!

            Traffic of customers was huge, but staff efficiency was not as much as to be. Initially they offered me room and it was like junk yard, I complained so they shifted me to another room which was twin bed with small 2 bed so they told me they will shift me to another room once it get vacant as I was alone and bed wide was too small. After few hours I talk to front desk manager and he give me quite good room as I needed, in the night again I got call and She told me, next room has water leakage problem and they need my room to repair so they upgrade me to suite which was also good. This is my experience in this hotel. Hotel is very big, staff were old, infrastructure is also old they are renovating, Hope it will be better soon. As this is government Hotel, Things are not been maintained as it has to be. However staff were polite.

I was even given an extended Late Checkout at 4 PM as i was stuck in traffic and front desk obliged me. Breakfast has good choices of all cuisines and is delicious. I would recommend the hotel as one of the finest in Delhi.

            Typical Indian Government quality of service... Big disappointment”
            It is important to write this review. The Ashok being a five star hotel, has been such a disappointment for us. The toilet was very low marked with patches of dirt everywhere. Room service did not even bother to clean the toilet and replace the toiletries. They always stand in the corridor and keep asking you every time you go out of the room, if they can clean the room. When our access card did not work the reception staff didn't respond even after us going down twice personally, they insisted that it should work. Our toilet had a water leakage from the AC on the last day. The free breakfast was okay with many options, but the taste is no where close to any high end restaurants. Tea was so bad with nothing but hot water (talking about milk-tea). Service of the staff is so pathetic and so is the cleanliness of the tables. Overall, if they don't want to provide good service for the agoda price, they should not keep the room rent cheap and attract people for unnecessary reasons.
