Reviewed 19 November 2009

The rooms are small, but comfortable and clean - enough hot water. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the rooftop restaurant. The food is good, but plain and we would have enjoyed a bit more variety and more typical Indian food. The staff was very friendly and the managers were attentive. While the metro to Conought place takes about 20 min plus 5 minutes walk to the metro - we found this not too bad, as the metro is clean and efficient.
We had to leave early in the morning and good coffee and breakfast even at 4 am ! The owner is very caring and helpful regarding any questions one may have.

Dear Shanti Home,
Once again, THANK YOU! for all your hospitality during our stay, I wish we could have stayed longer!!
We arrived in Delhi @ 4:30 AM, and there was a driver waiting for us at the Delhi Cantt train station (I had previously asked which station would be closer to the hotel, and they suggested this one, which is not only 10 minutes away, but very quiet, excellent choice). Upon our arrival, I was expecting that we would have to sit on a lounge or waiting area until a decent check-in time, much to my surprise, they checked us in immediately and led us to our room (which was actually booked for that night), where we were able to rest and clean up.
We had a cooking class at the hotel, and it was also memorable, everyone, from the Chef, to the servers was eager to explain what we were doing, and what we prepared we actually ate, and it was amazing!
They were very good also guiding us on where to go, the metro station is only a 5 minute walk, and once you get the hang of it, the easiest way to get around to the important places. My wife also had a massage (which she still talks about!!!), and we were able to eat at their restaurant once more and hang out until 10:30 PM when again, a pre-arranged vehicle came to pick us up and take us to the airport.
Having stayed at only 4 different places during our time in India, I have to say this was by far the best in service, cleanliness, and friendliness.
Thank you again for everything!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Shanti Home and enjoyed it from the first moment. Even though we had arrived very late at night we felt so welcomed. We got helpful tips how to do our sightseeing tour, e.g. what kind of places you should see fist and so on… and the next morning our driver got clear instructions so that we really could lean back and just enjoying our sightseeing tour. The staffs were friendly and helpful all the time without overdoing it. The breakfast and dinner was really delicious and the atmosphere of the roof garden restaurant was so pleasant. The room, we stayed in; the "Bollywood" room was tastefully furnished and it was nice, neat and quiet. The whole Shanti home is an Oasis and it was the best hotel we had stayed in during our 11 days India Journey. So, if you go to New Delhi, it is a must to stay at Shanti Home.

My partner and I spent a few nights in Delhi and what a nice oasis this is in a very busy city! Friendly and clean place with very helpful and service minded staff, they really do make you feel welcome. Hotel is a short 5 minute walk away from Metro. It takes about 30 minutes into the city center but don't let that scare you off... one day in the center was plenty for us, we got a driever to take us to the sights in the city and belive me, after a day in Delhi this is a nice place to come back "home" to and enjoy a beer or some of their excellent food on their roof top terrace.
My only "negative" comment would be that I must be a tad old, he he, as i could have done without the techno music for dinner. (or was it the fact that I expected some Indian background music??) At least the music wasn't too loud!
I would absolutely recommend this place as well as stay here again!

The driver was waiting with a sign at the train station and we got taken to the Hotel where we were greeted by the most hospitable staff I have ever met. And we had a weekend where we were treated like Queens. The little Hotel is an oasis in the Big Busy City. And it was bliss to come back after a "shopping day" and be feed. The food and the resturant (on the rooftop) is absolutly worth every penny. The ambiance of the whole Hotel is SOOO lovely and homely. The owners have really put there heart into every little detail to make us feel cared for. The rooms were clean and had beautifull art work from around the world displayed. They have a tailor service that is the top of the line in any respect. Internet in every room and one in public area. If you need a local mobil phone you can borrow from reception. A car and driver at your service when you need it and they will arrange any tour for you.
The only problem with our stay at Shanti Home was it was too short. Could have moved in there.

Everything everyone says in other reviews is correct- great people, terrific facility, good food, etc. But there are two caveats you should be aware of if booking here.

First is the location: if you were just going to hire a car to drive around Delhi anyway, the location is fine. But if you were going to try to use rickshaws or walk at all, you can find places that are much, much more convenient. '25 minutes to city center on metro' is accurate, and not bad, but do you really want to spend an hour a day of your India vacation on the metro? If you're OK with that, then this place is great, but we didn't realize that when we booked it and it bothered us.

Second is the cost: not bad, but our first hotel in Delhi was 50% less and similarly clean/courteous/etc. (admittedly not quite as luxe.) I wish I'd paid slightly less attention to tripadvisor's value rating and slightly more to the bottom line when booking. Again, not a huge deal, but this is not as cheap as you might expect it to be from tripadvisor's value rating and the fact that it is in India, so pay attention.
