My wife and I enjoyed two stays at Chhoti Haveli--one at the beginning and one at the end of a six week trip in India. It was a perfect choice for us since we were simply stopping through Delhi on our way to and from other places via airline, and the guesthouse is only about a 15-20 minute taxi drive in traffic from the airport, thus sparing us from having to fight our way into and out of such a big and imposing city. At the time of our visit, there was a package on offer on their website that included bed, breakfast, and transit to and from the airport at a reasonable rate.
However, location and convenience for air travelers should certainly not be the only reason to recommend Chhoti Haveli. The rooms are beautiful, with an understated elegance that reflects the owners' care and attention to detail, and of course they're clean and tidy, as well. Breakfasts were delicious--simple, yet hearty and well-prepared. I left the table with a full belly ready to travel. Perhaps the best part, though, is the owners themselves. While we did not get a chance to meet Pawan, Surinder personally greeted us upon our arrival and sent us off on our departure, and she visited with us over breakfast, as well. She exudes a perfect blend of politeness and familiarity, and she made us feel right at home. For those looking for a longer stay in Delhi or nearby, I got the sense that she'd make an excellent host and resource for touring the surrounding areas, too. Overall, this is a great choice for the midrange traveller who appreciates a place with a personal touch.
