“Relaxed and friendly....home from home”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We stayed at Thikana a few weeks ago. As other reviewers have said it is very comfortable, great breakfasts, lovely rooms and bathrooms.....but what makes Thikana truly special are the owners, Atul, Sheetal and their family. We stayed at Holi and enjoyed a great party. After lending us spare clothing to get wet and dirty we sprayed each other and their children with coloured water, enjoyed music, dancing, food and drink. It really was a brilliant Holi on the roof! Thanks and looking forward to another stay.

Having just moved to India, I was recommended this oasis in a buzzing city as my first stepping stone to life in Delhi. I was instantly made to feel like home. Atul, Sheetal and their family and staff really go out of their way to make your stay not simply comfortable, but a truly memorable one. Thikana is warm and inviting, clean, but most of all safe for solo female travellers. Its beautiful atmosphere is shared by all who stay there - I have met some great people during my stay. This place is truly perfect!

What a lovely place. Beautifully furnished, peaceful, very comfortable room. A real haven after a tiring overnight flight from London. They couldn't have been more helpful, even to the extent of helping us order a take away for dinner and then laying it out on a properly set table, complete with tablecloth

I took my daughters (first trip to India- they are in their early twenties) and my sister in law, her first trip as well, and my first trip back to India in twenty five years. We stayed at the Thikana as per a prior edition recommendation by Lonely Planet. It was truly perfect! The rooms were wonderful, the decor was chic. The employees were always willing to help and serve. Sheetal and Atul were amazing hosts who went out of their way to make their customers feel welcome and present the best of Delhi. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent and plentiful. And, of course, their cocker spanial, Raisin, added such pleasure to our stay!(we are all dog people!). The rooftop sitting lounge is a zen experience. When we return, we'll stay at the Thikana!

Thikana is superb in every way. Each aspect is top-notch: quality of the room, breakfast, welcome by the owners along with their hospitality, interaction with the other guests, location. My husband and I have traveled many, many places and Thikana is one of the most impressive places we have ever stayed. OUTSTANDING - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A lovely place to stay amid Delhi's noise and bustle. Nice to have some space to relax in the guests' living room. The breakfast with other guests was delightful - folks from around the world swapping trip experiences and stories. Very friendly and helpful - Atul helped fix us up with a local SIM card. Dinner - take-away delivered from the local Club - was excellent and good value. Would stay here again.

I enjoyed our first stay in 2010 and now again in 2013. Hope we will have nany more experiences!
The breakfast was very good, the conversations with other guest from around the world entertaining. Where else would you sit down with such an eclectic group? And Sheetel is as beautiful as ever!
