I've stayed in several hotels in Delhi in the past, including The Imperial and Taj Mahal and although these might be grander than the Shanti Home, they can't beat it in terms of service and staff (and cost at least four times more per night).
I was travelling alone and spent 4 nights here before flying down to Goa, then another 3 nights on my return so stayed in two different rooms - Kashmir and Benares. Both were lovely (although I preferred Benares) - beautifully decorated, with fantastic furnishings and fabrics plus free wifi and fierce air-con. What more could you want? All the rooms are individually decorated and themed and the common areas are also beautifully done. As others have said, the location isn't central but the metro is just around the corner, easy to use and 25 minutes into Connaught Place. The rooftop restaurant has great food (some of the best I've eaten in India) and the staff are all, without exception, wonderful.
One of the many examples of thoughtfulness deserves a mention: as any lone traveller knows, a book is your constant companion and the rooftop restaurant is (as you'd expect) lit in a lovely atmospheric way that suits it but doesn't help with your reading. The team at Shanti Home had noticed my bumbling around trying to find a table with an iota more light than others and, while I was in Goa, bought a light that you can clip to a book ("so you can sit ANYWHERE"). I was completely bowled over.
This hotel made a single woman traveller feel safe, secure and pampered in the midst of mad Delhi and I will definitely stay here again. Thanks to Sanjana, Rajat and Pooja plus all the other remarkable staff.
