I had the great fortune to find and stay at Ahtushi's B&B in Delhi. Ahtushi's and her home are lovely. I felt very welcomed and that she felt she was sincerely happy I was there. Gracious service and yet I felt like I was at home. My room was wonderful - big comfy bed and my own bathroom. Everything is very clean and nicely put together. The location is near the airport so it's perfect for stays of any length.
Ahtushi had a car pick me up when I arrive and I am waiting for one that she called right now to head back to the airport. Breakfast is great: cereal, toast, fruit, milk tea, orange juice, cheese omelet, and Indian hash browns (similar to those in Japan and to potato pancakes in Germany). Ahtushi offers dinner at an extra cost. I took it because it is dining with the family and I wanted that experience. She also has menus of good, safe food that can be ordered in. All the food was super and I feel great!
Yesterday, I had a free whole day in Delhi and Ahtushi recommended a few monuments to visit. She set me up with a driver for half the day who took me to the places she suggested.
This has been a stupendous experience on my first trip to/through India. I am very happy that I chose to stay at Ahtushi's B&B. You will be, too!
