Review of Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel in Delhi, India.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – Affordable, reliable, convenient, functional, and ideal for transits.

Substantially larger than many other Ibis hotels across Asia, this property is very popular with packaged tours and airline crews. Guests are attracted by the rates, which are less expensive than most rivals, and prime position within Aerocity, a purpose-built suburb of hotels, malls, cafés, and offices only a few minutes by car/taxi from the airport. Adding to the appeal of the spacious rooms are the Indian-style decorations and corner sitting areas with desks facing the windows. And the Ibis is also only a few minutes on foot to the metro station, with express services to downtown Delhi, and to the top-notch Worldmark malls, home to numerous places to eat, drink, and shop.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – The Location

  • Address: In Aerocity, a modern suburb with nothing but hotels and tourist facilities; in fact, no-one lives there. About 11 minutes (4.5km) by car/taxi from the international and domestic terminals.
  • 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: Some rooms include a 1 or 2-way transfer to/from the airport. Otherwise, get a taxi. See Local Transport below for information about the Delhi Metro.
  • Handy to: Airport.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – The Basics

  • Views: On a corner, with many more rooms offering better views than those at rival hotels. Rooms facing the main road or airport are heavily soundproofed, while others face inwards and overlook the pool.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – Amenities

  • Pool: The outdoor pool was being completely revamped in the winter of 2019, but should provide welcome relief during the hotter months.
  • Spa: None.
  • Fitness Center: iFit is as compact and functional as the hotel itself, with just enough to please gym goers.
  • Other Facilities: Laundry. Money-changing. Business services. Computer stations.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – Food and Drink

  • Restaurant & Bar: Spice It – Sunny and airy café opposite the reception area. Buffet breakfast and a la carte meals all day. Open-plan kitchen. • The Hub – All-day bar/lounge with light meals and plenty of drinks.
  • Breakfast: Not included but can be paid for when booking or on the day.
  • Room Service: Available during restaurant hours of about 7 am to 10 pm.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – Rooms

  • Room Types: Standard Rooms only, with queen or twin beds. Also, ‘My Room – Experience the Mystery’ (see below).
  • Smoking Rooms: Some rooms allow smoking.
  • Best Room: Unique offering is something called ‘My Room – Experience the Mystery’. According to the website, ‘each room narrates a unique story of its employees, waiting to be told.’ (However, they look the same as the other rooms…)
  • For Families: All rooms can fit in an extra single bed, and some have connecting doors.

Ibis New Delhi Aerocity Hotel – Local Transport

  • Walking: Plenty of facilities within the suburb of Aerocity, which is about 1km 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 road from the hotel (past the Holiday Inn). 6-minute walk.
  • 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.
