Great hotel with a very efficient and helpful owner. The rooms are individually decorated and very stylish - so much more charm than a big soulless international conference hotel. The owner went out of his way to he helpful including coming to find us in the city in his own car when our Jaipur driver couldn't find the address. A super place to stay.

Shanti Home is a very cosy, warm and good place to stay, in a very busy and noisy area. It has great rooms, different in sizes, but clean and with perfect beds, nice equipment, decorated with personal things and a really indian atmospheric !
It is quiet, in the house, in the rooms, in spite of the busy road near to the hotel, with a lot of traffic. But when you are in the hotel, you really feel peacefull and relaxt !
There is a fantastic, beautiful restaurant / terras on the top, where they serve very good meals, a lot of choice. The staff is great, personal, very polite and they like to talk with you, to help you in every way and to give you the perfect service you need. Especially the owners are great people! They come to you, when you enjoy your meal or a nice cup of coffee and ask you how you feel and if everything is fine. I really appreciated this personal attention an attitude !! You feel at home and want to come back over and over, to this place. So we hopefully will !!

I liked staying at Shanti Home:
Clean
Very friendly and helpful persons (they help you with your trip planning and also organize a driver for you)
Nice rooms with a creative design
With restaurant on top of the roof

Only negative: It's closed to the metro, but as the metro has a limited rail network, it takes nearly an hour until you are at the place you want to visit within the centre

My wife and I stayed at this lovely boutique hotel for the second time this year.

I am pleased to confirm that the very high and exacting standards of the hotel have been maintained in every respect right through from email confirmations, to airport pick up, arrival, stay, restaurant and departure.

The hotel is clean well laid out and all the staff are most helpful and welcoming.

I sum up our second visit as 'going back to see the family'

We shall continue to use this hotel as our base in Delhi as I have a motto of 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.

Well done Rajat, you have created a hotel that matches the very best standards of equivalent hotels elsewhere in the world.

Staying at this hotel is a wonderful experience.

Check the hotel website it’s fact. There are no overstated claims and it truly represents what the hotel is all about.

From our first telephone call, dealt with by the wonderfully efficient and friendly Pooja, to emails answered promptly by owner Rajat Verma, the pre-arrival vibes were excellent and we weren’t disappointed.

The quality of accommodation is excellent, with very well appointed rooms and great taste shown in the decoration. We stayed at the Shanti twice and had ‘Oh Calcutta’ the second time – fantastic. It’s worth asking for. Other contributors have mentioned that it’s below the roof terrace; you would have to be particularly sensitive to let this worry you.

Moving up to the restaurant on the roof, this is a fabulous escape from the hurley burley of chaotic Delhi, great food and a place to relax with a cold beer.

Chef Addie (formerly of the Oberoi in Agra) has cooked for presidents and you can tell. Don’t worry about the menu, chat with Addie and Rajat, about what you like and leave the rest to the chef, I doubt you will be disappointed.

On the face of it, the location may appear questionable, but proximity to the airport and with the metro on the doorstep, it works exceptionally well.

External staff are brought in to look after the spa treatments. We enjoyed a massage and a fascial, both were excellent and great value. The steam room is a nice extra and rounds treatment sessions off well.

In thirty years of extensive travelling, I have not found a hotel to compare with this, for the atmosphere and a genuine desire to delight customers. Sure, you can pay thousands of bucks a night for real opulence, but I don’t believe that your experience will be any better.

In conclusion; nothing is too much trouble for Rajat and his team, we look forward to staying with him again.

I was landing at Delhi airport at 23.30, and wanted the re-assurance of a reliable pick up. I had reviewed this hotel on Trip advisor and was very impressed with the comments. I therefore booked direct with the hotel for myself and 2 friends to stay the one night.
Went completely without a hitch. Good online communication directly with the hotel, and very accommodating when I wanted to change my reservation.
We stayed in one of the Luxury rooms, (this slept 3), it was immaculately clean and the bed linen was crispy white (I love how they starch their whites!!!).

We used the rooftop restaurant for a quick drink after arrival, ice cold kingfisher and freezer chilled glasses were most welcome.

The hosts also organised a taxi for our onward journey, which, after some negotiation we were very happy with!
Would definately recommend for weary travellers.

I was part of a large trip that traveled throughout Rajasthan for a week. When we arrived in Delhi, we splintered off into groups. Many of my fellow travelers had booked rooms in more familiar names like the Hilton or the Hyatt. I had read reviews of the Shanti Home on Tripadvisor and it sounded like most guests were very happy with their experience, so I decided to try it.

I couldn't be more happy with my decision. While not centrally located, Shanti is very close to the Metro which can take you anywhere in the city in a matter of moments. It is also only a short cab ride ("short" being a relative term in Delhi's traffic) from downtown. But aside from it's less-than-ideal location, Shanti is a wonderful hotel. The staff is attentive and offers you the type of personal service that you cannot get in a larger chain hotel. The rooms are beautiful, each decorated with a different regional theme, complete with hand-carved furniture. Little things like free wi-fi in the rooms make you feel like you aren't being nickel-and-dimed.

The restaurant on the rooftop is not only visually sumptuous, though a little on the warm side, but the fare offered is varied and delicious. Bottom line is that Shanti Home was a wonderful place to spend the final few nights of an amazing trip.
