We found the staff to be extremely helpful. I transferred to this hotel from another Delhi location. I called the owner and he graciously arranged for a taxi to pick me up at my hotel to bring me to Shanti. This may not sound like a big deal but in fact my hotel was a bit off the radar and hard to find. And Delhi being the huge city that it is, I was afraid I would not find Shanti on my own. Taxi drivers in Delhi usually need landmarks and directions; simply giving an address does not always do the trick. So it was with great relief that I was picked up and brought straight to their door. I was not even charged for the transfer. The owner is very hands-on which assures excellent service at all levels, be it in the restaurant, reception, or the guard at the gate. Having been to India many times I found the restaurant food to be good but not quite at the top compared to some of the restaurants I have been to in town not geared only to foreigners (to be recommended is the wonderful Spice Route at the Imperial if you are willing to splurge or Karims in Old Delhi for a cheap, very authentic Indian experience. One other factor for those staying in Delhi for sightseeing - Shanti is very close to the metro but far out, meaning the ride into town is about 30 minutes or more. So getting to the main tourist sites is a trek. We stayed here as we were flying out the next day rather early. As the hotel is on the outskirts, traffic to the airport is minimal so one is assured of any easy, stress-free transfer. The driver from Shanti was fantastic, one of the best I have ever had on my many trips to India. In a nutshell, stay at Shanti for attentive service, decent food, clean, nice rooms, but if you are in Delhi for major sightseeing, consider something closer in to town.
