B Nineteen (B-19) Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #48 of 1,101 New Delhi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We stayed here for one night. Although it's designed well and Aditi was helpful, it certainly is overpriced at £82 per night! For that price you would expect a lift, pool, gym or sauna. There were bugs coming in and out and the terrace wasn't as private as we thought it would be. We didn't sleep all night because of the train station had trains going ALL NIGHT! Breakfast really average (we were in india for 17 days and had some delicious breakfasts), you have to pay for wi-fi and Taxi's couldn't find the location.

Save some money and stay at Eleven Homestay which is not only half the price but in a better location (5 mins away) with a very attentive owner and massive lovely rooms with free wi-fi and you get some sleep.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Penthouse. The other rooms actually looked better.

Dear Reviewer,
We take a lot of pride in our services and keeping our place clean and provide mosquito nets and spray regularly.
Our breakfast is widely appreciated and we have had several guests commend us, we take our criticism very seriously and have started including organic milk and cereal and gourmet coffee in our breakfast menu. Unlike most places, which provide a buffet breakfast we have a very elaborate menu which our guests customize according to their tastes. I am sorry to hear that you were unable to order anything that suited your taste. We are not a home stay like Eleven which is half our price as they do not offer anything close to what we do but we are a boutique property with amazing views of the Humayuns Tomb. Most of our guests are repeat customers who know they will get our uncompromising attention once they are with us.
We charge a very nominal Rs. 200/ day for our high speed internet. We have three separate modems for six rooms to ensure our guests can work uninterruptedly and do not have to worry about slow speeds because of over usage.
We are located near a train station and most of our guests find the occasional train noise charming and some who do find it disturbing do request one of the interior rooms.
I am sorry we were unable to meet your expectations in that one night stay.

Great service, large comfortable, charming rooms, with terraces.
The area is lovely and the view from rooftop terrace is great. Janis, Rajive and Aditi are warm, cheerful, efficient and charming. Thoroughlu enjoyable!
All in all a small jewel of a boutique hotel!

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our three week trip in India. Being first time travelers in India, this was the perfect place to stay because of the personalized service. The team arranged a daily driver and guide for us to tour the city, made dinner reservations and taxi arrangements when requested. One highlight was an evening tour at a nonprofit organization located near B Nineteen focusing on training youth for jobs as well as seeing/hearing Sufi singers (all arranged by the B and B staff). Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was delicious. We also had two light dinners cooked there for us (really great dal). Staff is kind, friendly, informative and attentive. Highly recommended!

Stayed here only for a couple of nights, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Aditi and her team were warm and friendly and were happy to offer advice and information.
The area is lovely and we were happy to walk around the neighbourhood to see what was around. A bonus that Anokhi is just around the back of B Nineteen!
We went by tuk tuk to khan market, which was a short drive away for shopping, lunch and dinner. We also had a meal made for us on arrival at B Nineteen which was delicious especially as we had been on a train for 28 hours.
The room was comfortable, cosy and cheerful and the showers...yes two showers in one cubicle was amazing.
I will be coming back to Delhi and my first choice for accommodation will be B Nineteen. Thank you

The owners Rajive and Janis are architects, and the style of the décor and design of the property reflect this. We met them during our stay, both were both engaging and charming despite the fact they were in the immediate throes of a reunion after Rajive had just returned from an exhausting trip to America. Engaging and charming are adjectives that could equally be applied to Aditi, who helped manage our stay with warmth and intelligence. Her team did an excellent job too, we ate in each evening and enjoyed the quality of the food and the reliable and unfussy service of Parwan and Narinja. Our room was large, attractive and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is quite unique with its proximity to Humayun's tomb,and Nizamuddin East is in a great location with a superb café just around the corner in this leafy enclave. Delhi is a noisy and chaotic city, although Nizamuddin East is relatively quiet other than the very regular train horns which sounded like schoolchildren at large driving the trains. Overall, a very good and stylish Delhi option which is extremely well managed.

I would recommend B-19!

Things to know is that all the houses in this gated community (EAST Nizzamuddin) are numbered A-1, A-2, etc, B-19. Some people know it, especially once you are inside East Nizzamuddin. We actually got taken to B-19 in West Nizzamuddin the first time, and took a long time to actually get to the correct place.

Perhaps a map would be useful when booking.

We found it a little overpriced (we got the Penthouse Apartment at around $200 AUD for a night) but it is a lovely quiet location with a beautiful view. It was outside of our budget but Delhi seemed a little more expensive anyway so we thought why not!

Wifi wasnt working though, which was frustrating, and it costs 200 INR, and paying on credit card cost me 330 INR. But she didn't charge for the internet so that was no prob.

Great bed, good shower (except my partner actually had super low pressure as he showered before 7am, it was fine for me afterwards - so maybe it got turned on then?)

Service was excellent, Aditi was very kind and informative.

Thank you for your review and for recommending us.
My apologies that you had a hard time locating us. Usually we tell people in advance our location which is fairly easy to find with correct coordinates.
We ensure that our Wi-Fi is working smoothly but sometimes the trouble is with the service provider and we try our best to rectify it immediately with a clear understanding how important internet connection is to our guests.
We have a pressure pump to provide excellent temperature controlled showers to our guests and when I investigated why the loss of pressure occurred before 7am I found that the connection to the pump had tripped and was fixed immediately.
We hope to welcome you and your guests in the future; we work very hard to make bnineteen a special place to stay.

I don't normally write reviews, but after a lengthy stay in B nineteen(5weeks) I felt I needed to air my appreciation. I can honestly say the staff are great, Aditi, Ramon and the staff couldn't do more to help, and the premises are really well presented traditional yet modern. A great place to retreat to amid the bustle of Delhi, and if your lucky you can share your breakfast with the family of monkeys that sometimes greet you on your balcony!
