I don't do many reviews but I had to write about this place. Established 20 yrs ago by India's foremost mountaineer and a friend of the late Sir Edmund Hilary, this is a family run place that is the best place to stay for someone who wants a B and B in the posh and safe South Delhi area. It is central to everything and is only 100 yds from the Kailash Colony Metro station, which is the only viable public transport in this city. This is the letter of thanks I gave the owner/manager when I left:
I am writing to offer my sincere thanks for making such wonderful arrangements for our family’s stay in Delhi at your guesthouse, The Legend Inn. Our entire family of four generations enjoyed staying here, from April 3rd through today, May 3rd, 2013, albeit with short breaks for travel elsewhere. All our friends and family who visited us during this long stay were also very impressed with the accommodations here, and wowed by the fast and gracious service.
We are very grateful for the tremendous effort that everyone at the Legend Inn put in to making our stay exceedingly comfortable, the rooms spotlessly clean, us and our luggage safe and our comings and goings convenient. Kudos to you and the entire Legend Inn organization: without exaggeration we have never seen the likes of this service in any hotel we have stayed at in the last decade across the world.
We would like to mention a few people whose work ethic and professionalism went above and beyond the high bar set by all of your staff. To start with, I cannot adequately put into words our admiration for Mr Yogesh Bhandari, the Front Office Manager. Similarly, Mr Vineet Kumar and Mr Dinesh Dhondiyal also gave us incredible hospitality, and round the clock service.
The hot morning breakfasts served so graciously in our rooms by Subhash and Mayank, with help from Amarnath and Joginder, were a complete joy. In fact all the meals we had were memorably delicious and quenched any desire to go to our favorite haunts where we used to eat Mughlai food on previous visits! Malkan and Dheeraj kept our rooms clean and, along with Joginder, helped with moving our luggage.
The Legend Inn’s luxurious rooms, great location and safe environment make for a very comfortable home-away-from-home experience for the leisure or business traveler. Kudos to you, the Legend Inn organization and its wonderful staff. We will definitely be back, hopefully next year!
