My daughter and I started and ended our trip at the Lifetree Bed & Breakfast in November. I am so glad we chose a South Delhi location rather than staying in the CP area. The metro station was within 5 minutes of walking. We walked to the market nearby (I ran out of clean socks) and explored restaurants and stores (some are really fancy!) in the neighborhood. We went to a really good restaurant that they showed us on the first night and walked back to it on our last night in Delhi (we ordered a masala martini). Kanta did so many things for us. She booked the train from Jaipur back to Delhi, kept our luggage while we went to Nepal and then Agra and Jaipur, told us how much taxi and tux-tux should cost for our various trips, let us use her computer, advised us on where to shop, ect... We dined with her and her husband one night. We asked in the last minute if we could eat at their place. I could tell that the workers were scrambling a bit but didn’t want to deny us. Oh yes, I watched how they interacted with their boss, Mrs. Kanta, and it’s obvious that they cared for each other. Kanta also arranged for a car tour for us – excellent driver with impeccable English.
The BnB is not on a major street, so it’s rather quiet at night, and that’s a blessing. Our room was large. I think Kanta should put two double beds in there and charge more money. The cost is just so reasonable, and whenever I walked downstairs, there would always be someone there to offer me tea of coffee.
Our experience in Delhi - and the whole trip - was a splendid one, thanks to Kanta and her husband ( a cultured gentleman, wonderful to talk to), and her lovely staff. The longer we stayed there, the more I appreciated the place and the lovely people, and I highly recommend the place.
