Am I the only person who has given 4 Stars to this place? Well that talks about how good the place is. The only reason why I gave 4 Stars is because this place doesnt have good lift/elevator facility. We have to climb 10-12 stairs before we find the lift to the first floor. This would not be inconvenient to everyone; but to those who are carrying heavy luggage, it would be very irritating.

Now the good things about the place:
1. The place is beautiful, lively, clean and very comfortable
2. Tapan and Kusum are awesome housekeepers and they prepare yummy food.
3. The place is very near to a good shopping mall
4. Close to Metro Station (15 mins of walk; you can bus or rickshaws nearby)
5. All basic necessities provided + little extra (Soap, shampoo, ear buds, cotton balls, toothpaste, mini fridge, mini kitchen, watching machine, INternet, Coffee tea biscuits at any time, etc)

I could not meet Mony but would love to meet him the next time I stay in that place.

MONYNewDelhi, Owner at BnB Chrysalis, responded to this reviewResponded April 7, 2011

Everyone at the BnB felt that Hema and her husband were a wonderful couple. It is only because they had such a hectic programme-sight seeing / going to Agra etc as well that we were not actually able to sit down and chat

As far as their comments regarding the lift is concerned , would like to clarify that BnB Chrysalis got permission to operate under the Incredible India Scheme which states that the premises must be located in a residential building.

Hence, there are very few recognised BnBs in this category where one would find lifts/elevators. Fortunately we do have one - though from the road level one has to climb seven steps

Security guards - at our expense are on duty both during the day and night - 24 hrs - and they have been very helpful to the guests in carrying their baggage- even wheel chairs to the lift

Apart from this there is also an intercom at the entrance direct to the BnB which one can access for any assistance that one may need

Hope other guests note these points so that they do not face any difficulty of this kind

Words will not do this place justice - it IS just being at home. My partner and myself stayed at Chrysalis while my parents stayed at another place - but Kusum and Sapan welcomed ALL of us with open arms! We had dinner together - REAL home cooked Indian food - unbeatable. But that's not all - I feel ill for a day and had to be in bed. Kusum and Sapan kept giving me food - and that too what I felt like eating, not just anything. I shudder to think what would we have done if we were living in some other place. Mr. Mony is a real gentleman at heart and I look forward to having more conversations with him. This is the place to be if you want to experience India at its best - warmth, love, care and genuine hospitality! Thank you and see you soon!

As a travel agent, I have stayed in numerous hotels and thought for our trip to India we should experience staying at a BnB. I was very impressed at the quality and service that BnB Chrysalis offered and I was happy I had the opportunity to stay here. It is a nice relaxing break to the hectic city outside and is a home away from home.

If you plan to stay in Delhi for a short or long term stay I highly recommend this BnB. Mony is hospitable and friendly and nothing is ever of any trouble. He will always try to help in any way possible.

The BnB is very clean, neat and modern. There has been a lot of thought and care with what is provided to their guests. The food is a highlight, one of the best meals we had in India. The staff (Suppan and Kussum) are excellent at making you feel at home.

The location is fantastic and across the road from the largest mall complex with numerous eateries, movie halls, bars and hundreds of stores. It is a nice part of the city.

If you plan to have the same experience in your travels, I would not hesitate and just book BnB Chrysalis! We will stay here again if we have the opportunity to return to Delhi.

We stayed at this BnB for over a month because a family member was in the hospital.
The BnB is located very conveniently to two hospitals, 3 malls and the new metro station.
Sapan and Kusum (the care takers) looked after us wonderfully. The meals were delicious and bedtea in the morning was wonderfull.
The owner Mony speaks english and is very accomodating.
We have stayed in BnB's all over the world but never for this long and can truly say that it was a pleasure to be taken care of by the staff of BnB Chrysalis.

After spending 3 nights in BnB Mi Casa, we travelled on but returned to New Delhi, staying one night in Mony's other property, Chrysalis. This property was a little more elegant perhaps, though both were very comfortable and spacious. Mony could not have been a more helpful and charming host. He advised us on travel and treated us like family. I highly recommend this place and BnB Mi Casa as well. Comfortable, spacious, clean, excellent food. All superlatives here.

A boon for Delhi. Very positive attitude of all the people responsible for it makes you oblivious that it's not your home. Much attentions is given to details, what you might need and where to find it... All essentials like soap, shampoo, cream are thoughtfully selected. much of it is on the house. Food is as home made as it can get. kept very clean. Professionalism without the formality. You can stay here long without experiencing hotel-sickness that can attack you even in the most luxurious of hotels.
I'm most grateful for the hospitality received.

From the first moment, when you got a bit lost at the airport, they take care of you in the best possible way. They help you with whatever you need and look after you better than your own family. There is no need to go to a restaurant whwn you are staying at Chrysalis, the food is outstanding..
