Le Seasons Hotel, New Delhi Airport

A Superior Room

USP of this mid-end hotel lies in proximity to the airport, booking without advance, and cleanliness. Although there was nothing to gaze at outside yet permanently closed windows in AC rooms violated my right to fresh air, at least in early morning. A busy narrow street separated the hotel from neighboring hotels, eateries, and shops.

I stayed at Hotel Le Seasons, Mahipalpur twice for its convenient location to catch early morning flight to Leh. A mid-end hotel on the main road is a five-seven-minute drive from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi.

The hotel allowed booking over phone and via email without seeking a deposit. The staff promptly emailed booking confirmation. However, the staff collected full tariff while checking in.

Service was quite good.

In-house restaurant served both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food that I did not try.

Room attendant and porter expected tips.

The airport hotel charged ₹3,000 (inclusive of C.G.S.T. (6%) and S.G.S.T. (6%)) per night on single occupancy basis for a superior room in February 2020. The modern AC room was clean and cozy. However, permanently closed glass window was a disturbing feature in the well-lit room. Ventilation was missing.

Tip:  Windows face duct areas in many rooms. Therefore, these rooms are not very bright in day time and every time you have to switch on light. Ask for a room whose window faces outside the hotel. These rooms have natural light when curtains are not drawn.

Taxi for airport drop was expensive: ₹400 for a less than ten-minute drive in Maruti Dzire.

Amenities in Superior Room

A mini kitchenette featured an electric cattle, cups and saucers, a fridge, complimentary tea ingredient sachets, and one liter of bottled drinking water per day.

A ceiling fan
A narrow tall cup board and rack for luggage
A pair of paintings added style to the walls
A mirror in the room
Clean dustbins
Wooden flooring
A glass-cum-wooden table
A cushioned chair that was not very comfortable
Free Wi-Fi

The guest room had green curtains for dirty glass, white linen, and yellow runner.

An intercom and table lamps on the bed side tables with useful drawers were handy.

Conveniently located sockets and switches next to the bed helped in saving lots of electricity because it was easy to put on and off electric gadgets in night.

A wide screen television hung on the bathroom wall separating the sleep area.

Remotes for both AC and TV should have been convenient. But the buttons of the overused and weak remotes required continuous pushing and poking from different directions to control both the gadgets.

Bathroom in Superior Room

A small en-suite bathroom was clean. Neither bucket nor mug was offered in bathing area. A small shower head was not enough. Exhaust fan in windowless bathroom worked well. Well-lit bathroom had no natural light. Although a bathroom curtain separated shower and toilet areas yet there was hardly any space between the western commode and washbasin.

Complimentary toiletries, a tooth brush, comb, soap, and shampoo, were a good gesture.
