“Warm and friendly family home in non-touristy part of Delhi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2010

I stayed at Caravan Homestay several times during my 2 month trip in India. I chose to keep going back between the various legs of my journey because I always felt really at home with them. The location is not in a touristy part of town, which is nice because you get to see the normal daily life the minute you walk out the door. There is a metro stop nearby which can take you in 30min to all the major Delhi destinations. The family is very welcoming and friendly, and they help you plan your trip, arrange for taxis, trains etc. (they speak fluent English). They cook excellent food if you decide to eat with them, and they can arrange for people to come to their house to show you pashminas, jewelry and even do Mendhi if you don't know the best place to shop. Its reasonably priced for the comfort (nice beds and clean bathrooms) and quality.

My adult daughter and I selected Caravan Homestay in New Delhi [--] after an exhaustive search on the web for a comfortable, safe and hospitable place to stay on our first trip to India. We are so happy we found this home and family. We were in close touch with the older son (a computer engineer getting his Masters degree in the US) before we left for India via email and they had a car and driver waiting for us at the airport for our arrival late at night. The family greeted us and the mom had prepared a warm snack. She is an excellent cook and we joined the family for our breakfasts and dinners for three days. They are an educated family who were available to us for guidance (drivers, transport ideas, etc.) but never tried to push anything on us. The dad, a pharmacist, was always reachable by cell phone during our travels throughout India and he also arranged for a driver to meet us at the train station in Delhi and kept in close touch when our train was 12 hours late. So they did more than give us a comfortable and clean place to stay (queen sized bed in a large room with private bath) - they offered us friendship and made us feel at home during our first trip to India.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Caravan Homestay, the food is amazing and just keeps coming. Nothing was too much trouble (2am airport pickup, etc) and we were made to feel very welcome by all of the family. Our 11 year old was entertained by their pet dog Google and their son Hari and his Xbox. Our room and bathroom were lovely and extremely clean, good selection of books to read, good access to WiFi. Location is good for exploring Delhi with the Metro station at Tilak Nagar just a couple of minutes walk away. There is also a good local market just down the street. We would stay there again whenever we make it back to Delhi.

my friend and i stayed here for 2 nights on the tail-end of a 2-week trip in india. it was a great end to our trip. the room and bathroom are both spacious and beautifully decorated. our hosts were gracious, warm, and very helpful. they took care of our every need. i already miss the indian pancakes and masala chai. the homestay is also conveniently located near a metro station and has a great wide balcony from which you can watch kids playing cricket or the crazy delhi traffic below (though the house itself is very quiet). if i came back to delhi, i'd stay here again.

Our family of 4 spent a week at the Talwar’s Caravan Homestay. The family’s hospitality was great – we were comfortable and felt welcomed in their home. We appreciated their local advice and recommendations. We were well-looked after and well fed. (The food was exceptional.) We enjoyed staying with a family, rather than the anonymity of a hotel room. The Talwar family were exceptional hosts and generously shared their home, and gave us the opportunity to see family life in Delhi.

We were 4 adults staying in one room. It was a little crowded but still quite manageable. This is a family owned operation and our hosts were more than accommodating. This is one rare place in India were you get the feeling that your hosts are actually interested in your best interests, not there own. The meals were great and the facilities more than adequate. This was the 2nd nicest place we stayed in one month's travel in India, Thailand, and Cambodia. The only better place (not for value) was the Grand in Kolkatta (which is ridiculously expensive.)

Access to the Metro was a huge benefit. You can purchase a one day pass for the whole system for only 70 rs to take you to most of the major points of interest.

Airport transfers (international) ranged from 150 rs by 3 wheeler, to 250 rs pre-paid taxi from domestic, to 375 rs meter cab to international at night.
