The warmth and hospitality of the family and staff running Grace Home was a most welcome interlude in our travels in India. Traveling in India can seem rife with hassles and uncertainties and my family much appreciated the home cooked breakfasts (parathas, yogurt, fruit, and eggs and toast for our daughter, and one morning a delicious curry with poori), the conversations with Auntie Gee and Sanjeev (owners), and the kindness directed towards us from all. The common areas are commodious, the long views from the rooftop relaxing, and the proximity to the metro couldn't be better. Dining options tend toward Western chains at the nearby shopping complex but the sense of peace in the neighborhood more than compensates for the lack of quality restaurants. Grace Home is not selling luxury accommodation (our room surely wasn't fancy in any way) but an oasis of calm, security and care far from home--qualities in the end that have more enduring value. We would recommend this guest house to weary travelers the world over and hope to return ourselves someday.
