This gem of an establishment gets top marks for its gracious, attentive owners, hardworking, well-mannered staff, immaculate spacious and tastefully decorated rooms and ideal location. This is as fine a lodging experience as I have had of any kind.
I spent 5 weeks at the Jorbagh BnB in connection with my work. Everything went perfectly from my first contact with the Sharmas via email. Daily life was great. My room was large, spotlessly clean and quiet with a desk, as well as good closet and shelf space. Hot water on demand, and a space heater for the just ending winter season, as well as a small fridge, made me comfortable, as did a shared electric kettle and very pleasant common living room. There’s good WiFi and satellite TV. The daily breakfast was excellent and delivered to the minute with the daily newspaper.
The Sharmas are alert to their guests’ needs, especially those of women traveling alone, although I hasten to add I always felt safe inside the B & B and outside. At my request, Mr. Sharma arranged for me to be picked up at the airport. (Incidentally, other guests and I used the same, excellent driver for a successful day trip to the Taj Mahal, which I had never managed to get to on several previous visits to Delhi.) Directions and expert advice on errands and practicalities of life in Delhi were on offer at all times. I didn’t need anything more serious than an aspirin – also provided -- but I knew that if I had, I was in good hands.
Every one of my Delhi contacts remarked on the Jorbagh BnB’s ideal location and they are right. The place is, as advertised, secure, and in a central, quiet, safe neighborhood, just steps to the Jorbagh stop on Delhi impressive metro and walking distance – or short tuk tuk ride -- to the beautiful Lodi Gardens, essential Khan and trendy Mehar Chand markets, a charming local book store, dependable laundry/dry cleaners and cell phone/SIM card shops, as well as the India Habitat Center and India International Center, post office, etc. Government offices, Connaught Place, museums are also easily reached.
In short, the rave reviews are true. I recommend the Jorbagh BnB highly and look forward to returning.
