I stayed for 3 nights with Ruuma at her wonderful home after a 2 week tour of southern India, I had spent a long time reading reviews before I booked, as I was a solo female traveller, somewhere safe and homely was really important, and I couldn't have made a better choice than to stay at Avaaya. Ruuma is a beautiful and inspiring person, so welcoming, warm and a breath of fresh air in the bustle and craziness of Delhi. She couldn't do more to help make me feel at home, and to take full advantage of my short stay in the capital. Her home is beautiful, the food is fantastic, freshly prepared and all organic, I've truly missed it since being back in the UK. The apartment is fantastically placed to see the sights and in a great neighbourhood, Nizamuddin East is wonderfully calm and quiet compared to the rest of the city and so close to Humayum's Tomb. I arranged a trip to Agra via a travel agency and Ruuma organised a delicious lunch for me to take along, and bottles of Himalayan spring water with lemon, and after I gave her an extensive list of places I wanted to see on my 1 days tour of Delhi, she organised a driver and an itinerary including a fantastic thali lunch. Be warned though, I did get some very funny looks when I had to say no to extra helpings! :) I would definitely recommend Ruuma and her fantastic B&B to anyone travelling in India, I hope that we remain in contact for many years.
