We stayed for one night at the Shanti Home, and we only wish it could have been a longer stay.
After a difficult cab ride to the hotel, which we arranged ourselves, we were very happy to arrive. The welcome was exceptional and the second you walk into this small boutique hotel you know you are in a good place.
The room was beautiful and incredibly comfortable - we were asked when we reached our room if we'd like coffee bringing to the room - something you would usually only expect of a much more expensive hotel - so when we then asked whether we wanted lattes, cappuccinos or any other kind of coffee we were really impressed.
Despite being a relatively small boutique hotel, we were blown away by the facilities - including an in-house spa which offers incredibly good value massages, a wonderful restaurant on the roof which served us delicious food at lunch, dinner and breakfast - the latter of which was absolutely wonderful and the best breakfast we had in our trip across India. There's even a tailor in the basement if you need alterations or wish to have an affordable handmade suit made for you during your stay. There are no televisions in the rooms, which was fine for us as it would have been out-of-sorts with the very relaxing feel of the hotel. There is however a wonderful TV room which is incredible, and was a lovely way to meet other guests if you want to, though we often had it to ourselves and a quick call to front desk can have drinks brought up. We loved the idea that if we were staying in the hotel with friends that there would be a perfect place for us all to meet up for drinks, entertainment and trip planning.
What else can I tell you to assure you that this hotel is amazing? Well - it has a lovely yoga room, and you can arrange private yoga classes with the hotel. And there are laptops on every floor that you can use for anything you need to do online - plus there's wifi throughout the hotel including on the roof restaurant, so you have no problems connecting on your own devices and getting stuff done wherever you are in the hotel.
Our bathroom was great too - lovely free toiletries to use, and a great shower.
The staff at the hotel were incredible and treated us like royalty throughout our stay. We were broken hearted to leave! For the prices charged by this hotel, we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.
The staff and management of this hotel should be very very proud of what they've achieved - and to be currently the second best rated hotel in New Delhi, second only to the very posh Leela Palace hotel which is often four times the price of this hotel, is testament to what a brilliant job the team at Shanti Home have done to run such a wonderful hotel.
Our advice - if you can get a room, snap it up. We can't understand how anyone could be disappointed.
We stayed in Bombay Talkies, just next to the spa - the room was peaceful, and it was lovely getting...
