We were upgraded to a Suite, which was quite spacious and nice. However, the furnishings appeared to be dated and the bathroom fittings were queaky... The breakfast was not upto the mark and the restaurant staff appeared indifferent to the needs of family tourists and were more attentive towards foreigners and business guests.
I enjoyed this hotel quite a bit, and would recommend it for anyone traveling through Delhi. The location close to the airport provided for a short taxi ride, and yet it felt like a wooded area far away from the masses. Let me breakout my thoughts on this property item by item:
Rooms: Fairly large room with a comfortable bed, a large flat screen, in pretty good shape and sporting large windows. The windows are terrific for letting in more light, but the view is obscured due to the massive layer of smog. I'm not sure if this is a temporary scenario, or a constant issue, but it's impossible to ignore. Or see far.
Bathrooms: Full bathroom, nicely appointed with plenty of towels. No bathrobes provided by hotel.
Wi-fi / entertainment: In room wifi worked pretty well when it was actually functioning. The periods of good internet coverage, and no internet coverage varied during time of day. The hotel has satellite TV instead of a cable service, and the channels vary what they carry at any particular time. In example, if you like to get your news in the morning upon wakening, it may be on the channel you saw it on before, or maybe not. Moving target style. The hotel does provide movies and basic cable shows along with a variety of world news outlets in many languages.
Housekeeping: Good though not necessarily prompt.
Complimentary hotel breakfast: Very good. Local, western, and international dishes served buffet style with an omelet and special orders bar. Awesome. Good coffee too.
Grounds and pool: Awesome! Beautifully manicured landscaping, and a great looking pool. Hotel also sports a very nice gym, spa, and many conference rooms.
Hotel staff: Over the top helpful and nice. I had a tooth issue flair up and had to see a dentist, and luckily there was a dental clinic behind the hotel location. The staff looked up the hours, accessibility, and escorted me almost to the clinic door. From security at the entrance, to the crew at the gym, everyone I encountered was terrific.
Security: Amazing. I have never seen security anywhere in the world even comparable to this hotel. Armed guards, metal detectors, and layers of security before the lobby. Again, amazing.
Some downsides do exist with the property though. Power outages were frequent, and the smog was world class. Both Delhi issues rather than any fault of the hotel, but locale issues none the less. With this being stated, would I choose this hotel again? Absolutely.
Had a prolong stay at Jaypee mid 2017 but really enjoyed the experience. The location is certral, right next door to Priya Market and a short distance away from the mall. Close promixity to many of the small diplomtic missions in Delhi. The staff were extremely courteous and accommodating, which aided in my enjoyable stay.
Food - delicious
Wifi - complimentary
Laundry Service - excellent and complimentary two pieces daily
Spa - Affordable
The only down side, the hotel is located on a busy street and the noise levels that eminate from Delhi traffic flittered into the rooms.
All in all I would definitely recommend if you are conducting business or visiting friends in the Vasant Vihar area.
We stayed at the Jaypee for 4 days in late November and it was a very good experience. Our room was very nice. The bathroom was nice but a bit old. The staff were very courteous and we really enjoyed the Patra restaurant on the 2nd floor. The staff was very helpful in making sure they took into account our dietary restrictions. They gym facility is very good and spa facility was very good with a nice sauna and steam room. The one thing I would say that was a bit annoying was that every night we were there, some function (wedding/engagement/reception) was taking place outside and our window was facing the courtyard where everything was taking place. It would be loud even though we were on a higher floor. If you want more quiet, you should suggest a room not facing the outdoor reception area.
We stayed at the Jaypee for two nights and found the hotel to be excellent. The rooms were bright and spacious with good bathroom facilities. We ate dinner in the Paatra restaurant for one night and the food was very good and authentic. We enjoyed our breakfast in the Restro Cafe and found the selection of foods to be extensive. We would recommend this hotel.
