Review of Holiday Inn New Delhi International Airport in Delhi, India.

Holiday Inn International Airport offers spacious and comfortable rooms with great amenities.

Holiday Inn International Airport – Compact, convenient, functional, and reliable.

This hotel is one of many in Aerocity, an enclave of tourist facilities only five minutes from the airport by car/taxi. And as part of a well-known chain, guests know exactly what to expect at this Holiday Inn: comfortable rooms, reasonable rates, and practical amenities such as a pool, spa, and gym. But the overall spaciousness and serenity may surprise many, enhanced by the excellently soundproofed walls and windows. It offers a top-notch location for cafés, bars, and malls, and is walkable to the metro station which provides express services to downtown Delhi.

    (Not to be confused with the Holiday Inn Express at Terminal 3 within the airport.)

  • Nearest Metro: Aerocity metro station is about 500m from the hotel.
  • Area: More tranquil, tidy, and secure, and far less hassle than staying anywhere in the city center. Plenty of facilities within walking distance.
  • How to Get There: 1-way or 2-way transfers to/from the airport are included, but this depends on whether guests have booked a room or suite. Otherwise, get a taxi. See Local Transport below for information about the Delhi Metro.

  • For Families: Baby-sitting. Cots. Special deals for food and accommodation.
  • Other Facilities: Travel desk. Business services. Money-changing. Boutiques.

Holiday Inn International Airport – Food and Drink

  • Restaurants: Viva – All-day dining, offering buffets and a la carte from across the globe. Promoted as an ‘interactive experience’ with open-plan kitchen areas. • Viva Deli – Indian and European pastries and delicacies. Also, tea and coffee which can be selected using the ‘sniffing box’. • Bella Italia – First branch in India of this UK chain. Pasta, pizza, grills, and gelato in vibrant, quirky, and cozy setting.
  • Bar: The Hangar – Lounge & Bar – At the lobby and open until 1 am for cocktails, wines, and spirits. Intimate setting, pub-style meals, and modern décor.
  • Breakfast: Included if staying in a suite, but not free for guests in the rooms.

Holiday Inn International Airport – Rooms

  • Room Types: King Executive Rooms • Deluxe Rooms • Superior Rooms • Executive Suites • List of all Rooms
  • Smoking Rooms: Dedicated rooms and areas for smokers.
  • Best Room: Executive Suites are significantly larger and feature separate living rooms. Also includes pleasant extras like 2-way airport transfers, Club Lounge access, and free laundry.
  • For Families: Many rooms feature 2 double beds and are ideal for small families. Some rooms and suites also have connecting doors.

Holiday Inn International Airport – Local Transport

  • Walking: Plenty of facilities within the suburb of Aerocity, which is about 1 km by 400m in area. The special zone offers things rarely (if ever) found elsewhere in Delhi: e.g. shady footpaths, minimal traffic, and no hassles.
  • Public Transport: The Delhi Metro is quick, reliable, and excellent value. An express service, with only 4 stops, links Aerocity with the New Delhi station, attached to the main railway terminal. The Aerocity metro station is about 500m down the main road from the hotel.
  • Taxis & Rickshaws: Taxis are white, poorly-signed, and even harder to find in Aerocity than elsewhere in Delhi. Best arranged through the hotel. None will use a meter and all are outrageously overpriced, so many locals use Uber and Ola. Oddly, there are no auto-rickshaws in Aerocity.

Holiday Inn International Airport – What’s Nearby?

  • Plum by Bent Chair – Quirky décor and hearty portions. As famous for its chairs as its cocktails and curries.

Nearby Shops

  • Worldmark 1, 2, and 3 are a trio of massive western-style shopping malls just steps away. All are alongside each other, just around the corner and within a 1-2 minute walk of the hotel. The malls are also home to well-known outlets, e.g. Starbucks and Subway, as well as numerous boutiques and minimarts.
