Shanti Home in Delhi is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are all distinct, with whimsical names and lots of character. All staff members are friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about Delhi. They'll help you with your plans and book a trusty car and driver for you. The restaurant is open until all hours, with delicious Tandoori and butter chicken. This lovely hotel is a must!

I chose this place because of the excellent reviews and it certainly lived up to them. Our room was on the small side but very nice and clean with good airconditioning and a modern bathroom which cannot be taken for granted when travelling in India. If I can say so, the only negative point was that there was no tv in the room (there's a common living room where you can watch a movie if you want to). Roof top terrace with a really good restaurant run by really friendly young staff. The best thing about this place is the staff, who from the moment we arrived till the moment we left went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, organised our transfers, organised our day trip to taj mahal, bfast in bed at 6am, packed lunch for tour, although we had checked out they let us use the massage room to shower and freshen up before our flight back home. It's a pity we were only there for one night..

I spent 2 nights at Shanti Home, one of the days being my birthday. I was made to feel welcome by all staff members. The staff baked a cake for me and sang to me and I felt very special. The restaurant served great meals with the chef interacting with the guests! Rooms were very comfortable. A very hospitable place!

I liked this place. A lot. Mostly we stayed in budget places in India but treated ourselves one night of luxury in Shanti Home before we returned to the UK. It was a quiet haven after the chaos.

Ranjat and the rest of the team were personable, professional and sincere. Real, genuine service - from the lovely guy who picked us up from central Delhi to the accomodating and polite waiting staff in the restaurant.

The rooms were spotlessly clean, very Westernised in terms of facilities but with nice Indian decoration and flavour. The spaces you could hang out in - like the Krishna library, the movie room and the Lantern restaurant were all comfortable, chilled and had nice details whether that was beautiful wooden sculptures or access to a free laptop. They were hugely accomodating (without being pushy or obsequious) suggesting drinks/food for my poorly friend and even bringing me a little reading light whilst I was writing on the rooftop at dusk.

I can't comment in terms of location as we enjoyed the Shanti Home so much we just stayed in the hotel and ate a delicious meal at the rooftop Lantern Restaurant. I suspect it's not super convenient for central Delhi but it's close to the metro and so in 23 mins you can get there. Did I mention - it's quiet (by India standards). Quiet in Delhi??!! Oh and the food really was delicious and beautifully presented - how often do you have a tomato lantern in the middle of your Tandoori Paneer?

If you can afford it - stay there!

I stayed here with a friend, a first time visitor to India. The hospitality of the staff and their attention to detail could have matched any great five star hotel anywhere in India. In fact in certain areas they are a cut above the rest. We organised a car from the guesthouse for a trip to Agra and Jaipur. When the driver came to pick us up, we were handed a travel guide, map as well as information on the destinations we were going to. A few hours later, we got a call to check if all was ok and we were comfortable in the drive. Just EXCELLENT. I have had such trips arranged by five star agencies and hotels before, however the service from Shanthi Home beat them hands down. KUDOS to all of you :-)
