The Ashok is a beautiful old hotel in a lovely peaceful area of the city. The hotel is grand and beautiful, though in need of some updates - renovations appear to be ongoing currently. The facilities are great. Their gym is incredible and the pool is as well. Something needs to be done with the houseflies at the pool though. It is impossible to lay down and relax because dozens of houseflies will land on you constantly. This happened to myself and my colleagues every time over the course of a week and is really uncomfortable because you cannot relax. The hotel's food was good and the restaurants were good as well. The staff were helpful and friendly. The biggest downside to this hotel for me was the internet - I've stayed in a dozen different hotels in Delhi at 3-5 stars and the wireless at the Ashok is among the very worst. It cuts out constantly, it sometimes works great and then other times not at all, and sometimes it will say you are online but you are unable to do anything. Come with a data package or you'll regret it. Otherwise, a really enjoyable stay and would stay again.
