Reviewed 31 January 2009

We stayed in this hotel twice: at the very beginning & at the very end of our tour of Rajasthan. Whilst the hotel is a little way outside of the city centre (but in return closer to the airport!), the friendly staff, clean & interestingly decorated rooms and excellent roof top restaurant more than make up for it. We felt 'at home' from the first minute and would definitely recommend Shanti Home as a port for entering / exiting India, Delhi & Rajasthan!

I was on a short business trip in Delhi recently. Instead of staying in one of the bigger chain hotels, I decided to stay here based on the positive reviews. I was happily surprised by the Shanti Home Hotel. Getting there from the airport was a tale in itself, but when I got to the hotel I was happy to find a modern, clean and comfortable hotel.

The free internet access/computer is a big plus. The proximity to the subway was another plus point. But I would agree with some of the previous reviews concerning the neighborhood: it’s a bit grimy. But hey, you are in Asia. Big cities in Asia are supposed to be grimy!

What makes this hotel great? The people!

The inhouse trained staff at Shanti Home is absolutely amazing. It’s the small things they do that make a big difference to this hotel "experience"

No wonder this is the #1 rated hotel in Delhi on tripadvisor!

The Shanti Homes Hotel was our first port of call on our trip around the Golden Triangle and what a lovely place to kick off our travels.

To prevent any disappointment, any person staying at this hotel must be aware of the following:
1. There is no TV in your rooms.
2. There is no AC - then again we did travel in December when the mornings can be bitterly cold (5-6 DegC if Delhi is blanketed by fog). It does soon warm up to 23-25 DegC - perfect for touring Delhi.
3. Expect some noise - we were on level 3 which is directly below the restaurant and we could clearly hear the scraping of the chairs, voices and people walking.

Once you can get these issues out of the way, then there is no doubt you will enjoy this hotel. The rooms are simple yet elegant and tastefully decorated (we stayed in Backwaters) and very clean. The service is excellent with staff extremely polite and welcoming. Some of the more grander hotels could learn a few tricks from this hotel. On entering the hotel, we were welcomed with sweet lime drinks and garlands.

The restaurant area is located at the top of the hotel from where I was told you can get some great views but it was too foggy in the mornings to see anything. On our last day, the manager made up a small picnic for the children as we had a four hour drive to Agra. Its simple touches like this which made us feel like we were at home away from home.

The people at this hotel are lovely. We stayed there when we first arrived in India, they arranged someone to pick us up at the airport which was great. The food was delicious eating up on the roof. They arranged a car for the next part of our travel and we went back at the end of our trip too as they were all so nice and my husband got a tailored suit there too! They really couldn't have done more for us - thank you all.

The hotel reservations responded immediately when I sent an email asking for a reservation. They were very accommodating of my shifting schedule. They arranged train and flight transfers for me and went the extra mile. They also sent a staff person with me to the subway to show me how to use it the first time.

Rooftop garden is very pleasant and an ideal place to enjoy a beer on a hot day.

Rooms are clean and nicely decorated.

It is a great place and I'll stay here again when I come to Delhi.

Beautifully decorated boutique hotel with excellent roof-top restaurant (relatively inexpensive too). Small team of very attentive staff - overall ambiance very friendly.

Two minor downsides: Not very central (40 minutes drive from Connaught Place or 30 minutes by metro), and our room was slightly noisy on the first night (being right next to reception).

Overall, a great little hotel which feels much more personal than the typical Delhi international hotels.

I agree with the good points mentioned in other reviews. At first we wondered what we'd gotten into--it's basically a house in a residential area on the western side of Delhi, but the staff here makes all the difference. They are professional, warm, friendly and eager to please their guests. Anything can be arranged for sightseeing. This is a great place to stay for its proximity to the international airport. It can take 20 minutes to reach it with no traffic. The restaurant is excellent, which is good because there isn't anything else around, and after a day of sightseeing you won't want to venture out again at night. The chef trained in one of the top hotels in India. One thing that should be mentioned; be sure to ask the price of the chef's nightly seafood specials or you might be surprised. They were twice the price of anything on the menu. Our room was comfortable, but you do get noise from the hallways and above. The TV room has lots of Indian DVDs.
