  1. Love the look of Bloomrooms in Delhi. If it won ‘Hotel Concept of the Year’ it has my vote! While I try not to spend too much time in the hotel when I’m traveling, I can’t help but desire a comfortable and exciting place to stay. Great list.

  2. What a good selection of hotel options. I like the idea of being in town and close to things to do. And green practices such as sensor lights are a welcome sign for a hotel brand like the Radisson. Interesting to find a hotel just for women but I am sure it is popular for solo travellers.

  3. I’ve been to India three times but I always either stay in hostels or Couchsurf. But it would be nice to pamper myself with a private room sometimes. Good to know that there are affordable options available.

  4. I read about the success of OYO Hotels in India, and across Asia and I find it very inspiring. I hope that the hospitality industry will slowly come back to its glory days very soon. Best to promote small hotels at the beginning.

  5. These are some great collection of hotels in prime locations in India. I would definitely love to stay at BloomRooms when I visit Delhi. I would really love to see why it got the ‘Hotel Concept of the Year’! Seyfert Sarovar Portico seems to be in a great location with all Haridwar, Rishikesh and Mussoorie in almost equal distance.

  6. All these hotels seem to offer great value for money. They all look well maintained and spick and span. I especially liked the fact that Park Plaza Zirakpur is following green practices.

  7. I have read so much about Oyo Hotels. I know they are budgeted and are at convenient locations. Its nice to know about the other hotels too and as I am going to be planning a trip to Delhi sometime later this year or early next year, I will look at the option of staying at the Delhi Bloom hotel.

  10. Some nice properties here. Many of them I am hearing for the first time. I guess they have come up after I left Delhi. Seyfert Sarovar Portico, Dehradun looks nice and probably would try out that as I am expected to be in Dehradun in a couple of months.

  11. It is great to know that there are a lot of hotel accommodations available in India. We love the Radisson Hotel Group and we are happy with our previous stays with them. Will consider Park Plaza should we get a chance to visit. Can’t wait to try their multi-cuisine dining offers as well.
