“Where to stay in Delhi”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Devna is a wonderful place to stay in Delhi. Small, Comfortable, and a Great Staff that attends to all of your Needs. I can't say enough about David, the Manager at Devna. He assisted with many of our Travel details while in India and provided personal suggestions that made our trip wonderful. There are several restaurants about 2-3 blocks from Devna that we enjoyed. The next time I return to Delhi, I will be staying at the Devna.

Delightful guest house in a quiet and wealthy part of the city. The staff are simply excellent, and seem to take a personal interest in the specific needs of the individual guests. For example, we had a very early morning (2:00 am) flight when we were leaving, so the staff arranged that we could stay in the conference room and watch movies until we needed to head to the airport - a very thoughtful solution...! The cost of the rooms is quite high, but for the convenience of the location and (several good restaurants within walking distance, plus a little market area and easy access to reliable and honest tuk-tuks and taxis), the open-air breakfast on the shaded patio, the large comfortable rooms, etc. all make the Devna a great choice if your budget allows.

This delightful small hotel in a quiet suburb of Delhi is a real find.We were collected as planned from the airport and enjoyed a two day stay here. David the manager and all the staff were on hand to meet all our needs and made us feel very relaxed and welcome on arrival.We had an upstairs bedroom with balcony which I would recommend asking for... it was full of tasteful antique Indian furniture and had a lovely comfortable big bed with white egyptian cotton sheets.We enjoyed a few Kingfisher beers on our cosy balcony prior to walking out to a local recommended Indian restaurant which served amazing food.We felt very safe here and I would definitely stay again without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs bedroom with balcony

Devna is a lovely, tiny hotel situated in a quiet, leafy part of Delhi, opposite a small park. The hotel has a very private front garden where breakfast is served (and you could have dinner by arrangement). The hotel itself is very personal just like a private home so as two females travelling together we felt extremely safe. The rooms and entrance sitting room are filled with an amazing collection of the owner's art adding to the atmosphere and the feel of a home rather than an anonymous hotel. The beds were very comfortable, beautiful sheets, and it was good to have tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. The staff lead by David were helpful and very friendly. From the hotel you can walk to some of the major sights and just a very short walk away is small local shopping area where you can pick up supplies, restaurants, & taxi stand.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms have small balconies.

This small hotel is situated in an ideal position for exploring Delhi. The style of the hotel is old colonial with a very interesting array of pictures in the entrance hall, including many old photos of Maharajas and Maharanis. The rooms are comfortable with good amenities with tea and coffee readily available. The staff at the hotel were excellent being at all times friendly and very helpful and eager to help make our stay in Delhi an interesting one. During our short stay we had a dinner out in the patio area which was both inexpensive (even for Indian standards) and very enjoyable. Perhaps a little more light in the patio area would be good, but this did not diminish the enjoyment of the meal. Our small group of six felt that this was a good start to our Indian adventure. I would certainly recommend this hotel to others visiting Delhi.

A truly comfortable and welcoming stay in this quiet leafy and secluded area of Delhi. Far from the bustle yet within walking distance of some of the historic sights and five minutes drive from the main shopping markets. It was amazing to wake up to the sound of the birds singing in the heart of this busy city.
David and his team made our stay very comfortable and the food is exceptional. Try the Biryani...!
Our spacious clean and well appointed bedroom with balcony was of the standard of many top class hotels. We will certainly put the Devna on our list of places to stay and we will be back.

If you like small personable places, this is where to stay; out of the noise and bustle of Delhi, but not really far from anywhere, friendly, quiet little place. When back in Delhi, this willl be where we go back to. Very helpful, attentive, David runs the place really well, and the owners seem to actually like running the Devna (so much so that they've started another hotel)...what more can you ask?
