Review of Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport in Delhi, India.

Lemon Tree Premier, Delhi Airport – More likable, affordable, and personable than neighboring mega-hotels.

Unlike other more recognized but less charming high-rise hotels around this purpose-built suburb just minutes from the airport, the Lemon Tree exudes personality and vibrancy. The lobby is instantly appealing with its flamboyant lampshades and fashionable art. The eye-catching pool at the lobby level features shade, lounge chairs, and even some resort-style cabanas. Rooms are comfortable and compact, and the furniture and décor, quite appealing. Most face the main road, but the windows are solidly soundproofed. On a convenient corner, the hotel is very close to numerous malls and shops, and to the metro station which offers express services to the city center.

Lemon Tree Premier, 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 400m down the main road from the hotel. 5-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.
