“Very nice place but too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

My husband and I stayed in Devna for 3nights. Unfortunately we couldn't get one of the rooms on the first floor, our room was in the basement and had almost no day light, since we were never in the room during day, it was OK. but for the price that we paid we were a bit disappointed.
The service in Devna was really great, people were super friendly and helped us a lot (it was our first days in India and we really needed some help). and try the fresh made aloo parathas for breakfast, they were really good.
all in all if you want to stay in Devna ask explicit for a room in first floor.

I stayed 16 days at Devna this September and there really isn't anything else to say beyond what all the other excellent reviews have said. UNBELIEVABLE SERVICE....I will start by saying that the service at this hotel was superior to any other we have stayed in. Manoj, was the finest example of a concierge I have ever had the pleasure of being helped by.
The garden has a wonderful atmosphere for breakfast and snacks. All room service orders were correct and delivered on time. location and room was enough pleasing to get the feel of home for me. Would really like to thank to Manoj and other staff for their excellent service

The Devna is an absolutely superb little guest house within the larger enclave of Sunder Nagar, a leafy, quiet, sanctuary amid the turmoil of Delhi. We checked in at midnight, after a long haul, and felt instantly at home. In the morning we savoured breakfast in the beautiful courtyard and looked forward to returning each night.
Only 5 minutes walk from the Devna are great local shops and restaurants, so you really don't need to leave Sunder Nagar at all but we had our lovely driver, Dau, who collected us from the airport (arranged by the Devna) show us the sights and sounds of Delhi.
At the end of a long hot tour of Rajasthan, we were so looking forward to returning for our last night in India at the Devna, where we enjoyed a candle-lit meal of Kumari's delicious chicken biryani.
All the staff are fantastic and will make you absolutely welcome. See you next time!

I arrived late in the middle of the night. This was my first of many experiences in India and i did not know what to expect. I stayed in many 5 star hotels later and must say the Devna was extraordinary. Very clean, comfortable, central and hospitable. I had to leave for Agra the next day at 5:00am and they packed my breakfast meticulously in a cloth bag and even put the mixed pickles, they knew I liked, in a nice plastic container. Highly recommended and I am fussy. David Raj was very helpful and went out of his way to make sure I was happy.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and I had no complaints.

Devna is located in a posh area, with a small park nearby, the Zoo and a historical site.
It has few rooms and thus very personal. The rooms are very exquisitely furnished and tidy. Coming back to India from our recent trips to the South, Rajasthan and Kolkata, it is refreshing to find a decent and clean hotel, a home away from home.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The owners are also often there and are very friendly.
They can organize you a nice car for Rp1,200 for 8 hours city tour. It was worth the money and you can see Delhi in one day.

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms, and they are more or less the same. We stayed in the middle room and that wa...

I stayed with my mom sister and brother at Devna Guest House for 5 nights. We were new in Delhi and were there to do my wedding shopping. We chose this guest house coz it was affordable compared to the others and looked comfortable as we intendeded to be out the entire day shopping and use our hotel/guest house only to sleep and eat. Devna Guest House exceeded our excpectations FAR BEYOND! the rooms were fully equipped with all the necessities and (tatasky channels). The staff was ever so helpful and addressed our requirements quickly. They also got us a driver who was perfect for our short delhi trip and knew delhi through and through. The breakfast was laid out by Kumari in the garden which by the way is beautiful. They have all these old adverts from the 60's on the wall giving the entire place such a retro feel. And we didnt realise until we arrived at the guest house that how central we were. i was definitely looking for a central location for our stay but this was not just central but convenient distance from the noice of the city. Kapil Dev's (famous indian cricketer) house is just across the garden in front of Devna Guest House.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are nicer than the one below. But if you want more ppl to be accomodated in one r...

My husband and I stayed with our childrens at Devna GuestHouse for Six nights...wish we had stayed longer! The Devna itself was delightful and far exceeded our expectations. We arrived at Devna to find sorrounded by greenery, antique paintings, charming decor, beautiful rooms, well-appointed bathroom; everything we could have wanted was already provided. Mr. Punjab (don't remember his name) is a wonderful, interesting host who clearly takes great pride in his property. He has impeccable taste and works hard to please guests. Even he sung some punjabi songs also for us. The staff, David and the others, are delightful. The breakfast was delicious and served in elegant style by Kumari. The graceful garden made us feel like home and helped to spent some time in a natural peaceful place. When we left, I almost felt as if I was leaving friends behind because of the genuine warmth and hospitality. Very special place !
