“A home away from home!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have been living in Delhi for a year and a half and we have met Atul and Sheetal, the owners of Tikhana, socially. When we found ourselves homeless due to a serious flooding of our house on a late Saturday afternoon last July we called Tikhana and within 5 minutes we had a shoulder to cry on for our situation and a place to spend the night..Of course it turned out that we needed to spend much more than just a night since we had to look for a new house. Tikhana is an island of peace in noisy Delhi but yet very centrally located. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with new and clean bathrooms . both the rooms and common areas are beautifully furnished. The hygiene and cleanliness level is superior to many five star hotels in India...and trust me I have visited many of them! the breakfast is well thought of and quite flexible to meet the needs of guests. You can always be sure that your hosts will turn the world upside down to make you feel comfortable and meet your special needs.On top of that they are probably the most accurate "travel guides" to India. Atul and Sheetal along with their two lovely daughters Taira an Tia will need no more than 10 minutes to gain your love and make you feel you are a part of the Tikhana family! The constantly changing crowd of other guests along with the semi permanent guests that are constantly visiting Delhi for business and always return to Tikhana guarantee that you will definitely have good company when you feel like talking to people and have a glass of wine to unwind! All in All if the country itself doesn't make you want to come back then Tikhana will! Maria and Vladimir

We stayed in Thikana for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised by this place! First of all, thanks to Atul and Sheetal for running such a wonderful BnB. The best thing about this place is the friendliness! Atul goes out of his way to make the guests feel comfy and makes it a point that we meet each other! We knew all the other guests and since we were all from different countries, we had some excellent dinner/breakfast conversations. The location of this BnB is perfect and there are soo many restaurants close by! Sheetal had some very nice recommendations for places and art galleries to visit, which were excellent! We also got some very good recommendations for dinner restaurants from Atul as well! We really enjoyed our stay here and thanks to the hosts for making our stay even more memorable!

My partner and I had an amazing time here. The rooms and common areas are beautiful, modern. The owners are very welcoming, we felt more like members of the family than guests. I have already recommended the place to friends and family.

My son recommended Thikana, saying that if I ever go to New Delhi I should stay there. I was joining a tour but went a few days earlier just to stay at Thikana. I really enjoyed my stay and wish I could have stayed longer. Sheetal and Athul are wonderful hosts. The hotel is beautifully furnished and I specially liked the different areas for relaxing. The breakfast was really nice, with a selection of fresh and cooked food. The house staff were very helpful. I certainly recommend Thikana to anyone visiting New Delhi.

Beautiful bed and breakfast in South Delhi near Hauz Khas. Sheetal and Atul are fabulous hosts and go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and taken care of.

The breakfast is delicious and provides a multitude of options for guests' preferences and tastes. Fresh and gourmet ingredients are featured.

The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, and have excellent aesthetic sense.

Sheetal and Atul's aesthetic backgrounds and sense make both the rooms and common spaces delightful to spend time in. And Sheetal's art training is apparent with elegant and intriguing artwork featured throughout.

Wifi works well, is fast and easy to use in both rooms and common spaces.

ATM is just across the street and most South Delhi areas of interest are easily accessible by taxi or rickshaw. Delicious meals can be prepared in, and options for ordering in and served at the dining table are available as well.

Beautiful bathroom space with great hot water access and pressure.

In-room amenities are well-thought out and appreciated.

I have never enjoyed my time in Delhi as much as during my stay at Thikana! It is worth the indulgence, and with such a cozy and home-like atmosphere.

Thikanadelhi deserves its TA certificate of excellence.
It provides a safe, homely retreat in amongst the chaos of Delhi.

Spacious bedroom with mineral water and tea/coffee making facilities provided.
Modern, contemporary bathroom with nice towels and toiletries.
Free WiFi and pleasant shared lounge and communal areas for sitting and relaxing.

Delicious breakfast of fresh fruits, cereals, homemade bread and cakes, and eggs cooked to order.

Location was peaceful and quiet in a residential area and about a 15 minute walk away from Green Park Metro station.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Thikana. Loved everything about it – great accommodation in a great location, delicious breakfasts and warm and friendly staff who were always concerned for our well being. Sheetal and Atul are fantastic hosts and can be relied upon to recommend places to visit and places to eat nearby so that you make best use of your time in New Delhi. They took the stress out of our first few days in India. We would love to go back sometime!
I can't go without mentioning Raisin the little dog, who would occasionally put in an appearance after breakfast – so cute.
