    Govt runs many hotels. Delhi has three and ITDC runs them.

    The Ashok in Delhi is one of them.

    Moreover, the Delhi Hotel (Control of Accommodation) Act of 1949 mandates 25% of hotel rooms in all hotels of Delhi be reserved for Govt servants.

    However, the Govt is tabling a Bill to Repeal this archaic law, which has never been put into actual practice.

    The European Hotelstars Union system is based on the earlier German hotelstars system that had widely influenced the hotel classifications in central Europe, with five stars and a Superior mark to flag extras. Instead of a strict minimum in room size and required shower facilities (e.g. a bath tub in a four-star hotel) there is a catalogue of criteria with 21 qualifications encompassing 270 elements, where some are mandatory for a star and others optional. The main criteria are in quality management, wellness and sleeping accommodation.[8] In the catalogue of criteria each entry is associated with a number of points - each Hotelstars level requires a minimal sum of points besides some criteria being obligatory for the level.[9] The minimum requirement for the Superior flag requires the same sum of points as for the next Hotelstars level which however was not awarded due to at least one obligatory requirement being left out.

    There is so far no international classification which has been adopted. There have been attempts at unifying the classification system so that it becomes an internationally recognized and reliable standard, but they have all failed.

    Some hotels have been advertised as seven star hotels. The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai was opened in 1998 with a servant for every room - this has been the first hotel being widely described as a "seven-star" property, but the hotel says the label originates from an unnamed British journalist on a press trip and that they neither encourage its use nor do they use it in their advertising.

    Sir condition and quality of ashok is not better than any 3 star hotel in Delhi. So if govt decide 7 star it will be equal to 4 star hotel in Delhi

    Rarely anything that is owned by the Govt functions.

    No competition that could ensure the staff's efficiency.

    There can be an excellent 5 star hotel, but there is no such thing as a seven star hotel. When the rating is out of 5, how can there be a 7 star rating? I have heard many times people calling Taj and Hilton as 7 star properties, but most of their properties are barely 5 star. Many hotels accredit themselves calling themselves 5 star, when in fact their facilities are no different than a 4 star hotel.

    Few other hotels have the same.

    Why does the Indian public allow such things? Everybody knows that the Indian government has many more important things to do first before running hotels and airliners. People are also well aware that most of these ventures end up being pits of corruption, inefficiency and wastage. Why not just nip the problem in the bud?

    lol
