Shanti Home was truly like a home away from home. All the staff were well informed and could help you aquire anything you needed from directions to tailoring, from site seeing to shopping. It was a wonderful, quiet, relaxing hotel with the best food we experienced in India. I'd like to go back to New Dehli just to stay there!!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Shanti Home Hotel

Simply the best - forget the rest

from alexisgringo
I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for two weeks. After two months of travelling I returned here on my stopover without thinking twice - this hotel is simply the best in Delhi (and in most SE Asia!!) on so many levels:

1) Service: the service is professional and totally client-oriented. If you feel like a three course meal at 5 in the morning, it will appear in the hands of a smiling and friendly employee. No problem however great it may seem, cannot be overcome. I overheard a client who was unsure of the tube stop direction. The solution? An employee offered to accompany her there! Pooja and Anand will tend to your EVERY request.

2) Cleanliness and Hygiene: the hotel is literally spotless. From the sheets to the seats on the rooftop terrace, everything is squeaky clean. Mosquito repellant plugs are provided and the whole place fumigated with incense to make sure that no unwanted visitors creep in. I am an obsessive over cleanliness where I stay. The Shanti Home Hotel won full points on this front and edged well beyond so called top-class hotels.

3) Quality: the food prepared is delicious. I dont mean that in a 'i've-been-living-off-street-meals-and-this-is-really-good' way. I mean that the chef (an unassuming genius called Adil) could win awards. He will make it his personal mission to satisfy your requirements, often going further than what the menu offers.

4) Facilities: I had the pleasure of inaugurating the steam and massage parlour. In keeping with the rest of the hotel, the service is professional, value-for-money, clean and deeply pleasing. There is a shared TV room with an enormous flatscreen, reflecting the family atmosphere that the hotel tries to create (and succeeds). Wireless internet connection is provided free and the connection is excellent. Take my word for it - this is a rarity in these parts of the world!!!

The list could continue for example, I have not begun to do justice to the friendliness of the staff and its owners, the way you arrive as a client and leave as a friend.

Ultimately, it is clear that the owners have sat down and worked out EXACTLY how to create the best value-for-money hotel possible. The fact that in many respects it also outclasses even the big five star names, makes this the hotel of choice in Delhi.

So where is the catch? You might complain that it is not bang in the centre of Delhi and that you dont have a flatscreen in your room. Fair points but the tube is nearby and frankly I didnt miss the in-room entertainment. You cant get it all but 99% out of 100% is not bad is it!!!!!

BIG thank you to everyone there. I have never written so effusively about a place and doubt I will again. Go there and see what I mean!!!!

A little gem

from Holidaylad40
I rated this place 5 out of 5 based on value for money.

Communicated by email with this place a few times before my arrival and all emails were replied to. Driver met me at the airport as promised.

Upon arriving at guest house after midnight, was sat down and offered a chilled glass of juice (much appreciated).

Staff were super friendly, spoke good english, and room/bathroom were spacious and clean. Free internet was on offer.

This hotel is not 5 star with all the fancy trimmings, however you can get this in Delhi but expect to pay US$400 to $500 at some impersonal hotel. Breakfast was delicious and served up on the roof.

I really couldn't fault this place and if I ever visit mad/chaotic Delhi again, I would definitely stay here!

Fantastic

from Re-Engineer
What a great place, starting from the friendly airport pickup, the experience in Shanti Home is great. The staff are extremely helpful and provided me with tea at two o'clock in the morning upon my arrival. There is free wireless and the rooms are spotless and of very nice design. The property appears to be only have opened recently.

Charming hotel, excellent staff

from marcschroeder
We booked our stay after reading the reviews in tripadvisor.com. We stayed there for four days (Feb 6 until Feb 9) and we loved both the hotel and the staff, who was very friendly and did everything possible to make our stay convenient. The rooms are charming, the missing TV did not disturb us at all. There is a free wireless internet connection on the first floor, and the restaurant on the roof top patio is excellent. Would defenitely recommend this hotel, to families as well as to single travellers or couples.

Fntastic like visiting friends

from LG1England
We stayed our first night in India at the Shanti Home, they have created a haven from the madness that is Delhi. They provided us with every comfort, helped with travel plans and made us feel at home, the rooms are spotless, beds extremely comfortable. We returned to stay with them for our last night so what better review is there.

Shant Home = Our Home in Delhi

from Stephan_Vizag
Shanti Home is a particular place with a very special charme and with a Team, which is an extra class in kindness, attention and service quality. We enjoyed our stay very much, despite the fact that Delhi was very cold those days and the roof garden restaurant was a little chilly in the morning during breakfast, but when the sun came out it was a fantastic place. Rooms are very special and decoration is done with apparently a lot of good taste and love to detail. We can recommend highly this place as your home while you staying in Delhi.

Apprehensive

from ricbar
This being our first trip to India. We were rather apprehensive about staying in a non 5 hotel, 20 min outside the centre of Delhi. However we took the risk and we were glad of doing so. The Shanti home was great, excellent value for money. The rooms were clean, the bed very comfortable (we stayed in the Bollywood room) the service was courteous and friendly. The food at the roof top restaurant was superb in fact it rates amongst the best meals we had on the whole trip. Shanti home is close to the Metro which is safe and easy to use. We did do a bit of local shopping, the area is not great however we found it less hassle to shop, as we did not bump into any Hawkers or Beggars, they seem to congregate more in the City centre.
Over all the shanty home was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

Blissful Calm in Chaotic Delhi!!

from singasid
Firstly let me tell you this is not a hotel its home!! The quality of care and service here is fantastic. The staff here wants to help you and will make sure you get what you need. The chef will cook a specail dish of your choice, The girl at the reception will tell you where to go in case you need to buy a special souvenier, the housekeeping guys will make sure that your room is spic and span...in short everyone will go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable

Highly Recommended!

from loopy_louisa
A home from home indeed! Shanti Home is a boutique hotel that has everything you need - an oasis of calm, immaculate and well presented rooms, great food and attentive/personal service from the staff. Its based west of Central Dehli. To get to Central take the metro. There is a metro stop 3 mins walk from the hotel and the journey takes around 20-25 minutes at a cost of around 20 rupees. Trains every 5 mins. For something a little closer, and if its shopping you're after, there is a huge modern mall about 6 metro stops away that has the usual western brands (Adidas, Levis...etc) and a few good Indian and Western eateries too. Only one minor negative point was that on both occasions there wasnt enough hot water for the 2 of us to enjoy a long hot shower, but we may not have understood what all the taps in the bathroom were for!!!!!!!! Overall, we highly recommend Shanti Home - it was a great place to start an Indian adventure and to come back to at the end of a fantastic holiday in Rajasthan! Louisa and Ben, UK.

Comfortable, Clean and Really Nice

from madhatamerican
Definitely a place to reccomend to travellers to India. Personalized service they really care and great coffee...i mean real coffee. Travelling to and from the hotel is real easy as the metro train which is surprisingly clean and efficient has a stop next door.
