“Oasis in Delhi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Best welcome we've ever experienced. We arrived in time for the Holi festival and were invited to join in the fun with staff and other guests, we even had a complimentary traditional and very sociable lunch. Our room was large, airy and cool, simply furnished with wooden Indian pieces.
The hotel restaurant on the roof terrace is charming, lit by candles and lanterns and served some of the best food we tasted during our trip, the breakfast samosas and crepes are not to be missed. The kitchen is on show and looks immaculate and you can have a cookery lesson with the chef which unfortunately we didn't have time for. The staff cannot be praised enough, their care and attention and friendliness was exemplary. The hotel organised a car and driver to take us to Agra and sightseeing in Delhi at very reasonable prices, and hotel pick up and drop off went without a hitch. The wifi is free and efficient, unlike in the two 5 star hotels we stayed in on our travels in India, and there are several PC's for guests to use. This boutique hotel is small, friendly with a family feel and I would not hesitate in recommending it to family and friends, and should we return to Delhi we wouldn't bother looking elsewhere.

Great hotel. Very nice staff. Good food. Efficient and reliable airport pick up and drop off. Quiet location but near a metro station; 30-40mins to city centre by metro. Good, accurate information provided for Delhi visit. Highly recommended.

Delhi is a big city and if you want to get to know the locals you won't do it in a big hotel in the middle of the city. Shanti Home is the perfect place to meet some locals as the staff are personable and kind and super efficient. Special thanks to pooja, tuen and the chef for making sure we had a wonderful time during holi no less. Will recommend this place to everyone I know.

Room Tip: The ground floor had no view of course and our AC was quite cold maybe cos it was also cold outside...

Shanti Home is a beautiful place to start your tour and to relax before flying home (we did both). The staff and the owners are very helpful, they even provided us with a mobile phone, not only for the days we stayed at the hotel but for our three weeks travel to Rajasthan. From accompagning us to the Metrostation to organising train tickets, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant at the roof terrace serves excellent food (veg and non-veg).The rooms are lovingly and with taste decorated, very clean and quiet.
It was our first trip to India and we were glad to get offered a complimentory airport pickup. The warm welcome made us feel at home immediately.

Shanti Home is just a cracking little hotel. It's not too far from the airport which is a plus, especially for first timers not used to Delhi traffic- just keep looking out the side window in your taxi! It is a boutique hotel with only 12 rooms, very clean, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food served in the roof terrace is delicious and fresh cooked and the beer comes in iced glasses. There is a laptop for guests' use and they can even provide a mobile phone for using while in India. They will also provide help and advice for trips in and around Delhi. I spent a couple of nights here before going on a tour and can honestly say I was really looking forward to going back to Shanti and got the warmest welcome from the fantastic staff. The only word of warning is that there are a few steep steps which are unavoidable but there is a lift which covers 3 floors. It is also in a quiet location so easy to get a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed.

Room Tip: I was in a room on 2nd and 3rd floor and both were excellent
