“Peaceful, Private and Pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2010

The first and lasting impression was that I entered a home of a childhood friend. The lounge area was inviting and friendly. The rooms were clean, big and very comfortable with all the amenities one would want to make your stay worth it. There was even a fruit basket and facilities to make tea and coffee. Although the room had a TV, the big screen TV in the lounge area of the guest house brought the whole family together around sports channels and Play Station!
One valuable asset of the guest house is the manager, Mahdusudan. His hospitality, help with information and suggestions for places and restaurants to visit and help with arranging transport was invaluable. The owner also visited regularly and made us feel very welcome. Personal attention in an establishment of this sort is what really makes the stay enjoyable. When the Metro line is finished the Hauz Khas metro station will be walking distance away and bring the whole of Delhi within easy reach.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2009

After a few weeks in India, and a few days in Old Delhi, I was ready for a peaceful place. Urban Ashram was convenient to many sites and locations. The Haus Khas neighborhood is quite beautiful with many parks and upscale residential homes.
The hosts at Urban Ashram could not have been more welcoming and attentive. Each morning, a new Indian dish would be served with tea and good advice on daily trip planning.
Services are very good, with a fast computer onsite, ATM across the street, and taxi stand down the block. While not on a busy road, it was very easy to find, right by Siri Fort auditorium.

  • Liked — Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food and large rooms
