“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I am just back from three nights with the Bindra family. I am thrilled to have discovered this gem. The family are warm and friendly, I shared two delicous dinners with them and the conversations were very interesting - a great way to learn about life in India.

Mala arranged a car to collect me at the airport and take me around Delhi the next day and the driver was a delight.

It was truly delightful to spend time in Delhi with Mala and her family and they could not have been more helpful or hospitable.

Spending a few days with Mala and Gurpreet and their welcoming family - including adopted dog Lisa - was in itself a wonderful experience. It is home far from home! And Mala's cooking is amazing! I will never forget the time we spent together at their table, and how open they were to discuss a wide range of topics!!!Me and my two friends felt so taken care of, we got great advices of where to go in Delhi and what to see, and they put us in touch with Jaya - the Delhi tour guide who simply knows everything! - and a wodnerful and very safe driver, Kuldip.
Simply I could not have asked for more. Thank you so much!!!!!

Mala and Gurpreet are the most gracious hosts imaginable! I must share with you that meeting this kind family and experiencing their hospitality was a highlight on par with seeing the Taj Mahal. I was warmly welcomed after a long travel day with hot tea, home-baked pastries, and insightful stories, which was followed by a complete (and delicious!) Indian dinner. Everything about the stay was perfect: Mala was extremely accommodating of our family's late-night arrivals and early-morning departures; the WiFi actually worked (unlike some of the brand name hotels); there was hot water and complete quiet at night; and they even washed a load of laundry! Breakfast was among the best of the trip. The only downside to staying with the Bindra family is that you'll require transportation to visit tourist sites or reach the Hauz Khas metro stop, but if you're not concerned about taxi/autorickshaw rides bookending your days in Delhi then I highly recommend staying with the Bindras to make the most of your upcoming vacation.

Mala and her husband do an amazing job. After a month in Nepal and India this was a great last stop. The location is not in the center but near several Embassies and the airport. We were about 10 minutes to the Metro by TutTut which they would arraigned for us. Mala along with running the Homestead also does baking. She would always having something special that she would bake at mealtimes. Since we did not care to go out for dinner, we were included at the family dinner for a very reasonable cost for special Indian meals. It was like being part of the Bindra family.

I'm writing this review very late and I really apologize for it. Mala was one of the best experiences in our Nepal-India trip back in 2011. I found out about this B+B through Tripadvisor and the great reviews for this place even fall short of how wonderful this place really is. To start off, the family is super nice and caring. Mala is an amazing cook and the food was just delicious! We expressed our concerns about spicy food and she was able to adjust to our style while still showing us her local delicacies. Sitting down for dinner with the family was a great experience. We spent the whole dinner talking about our experiences, Indian culture and what to do in Delhi. This was truly a hands down absolute must visit place if going to Delhi. Thanks for everything Mala!

This beautifully decorated and furnished condo B&B is a must while visiting Delhi. Mala and her family kindly greeted us and as we sat for tea discussed life in India and shared some family stories. The food was all home cooked and so tasty. While there, ask Mala if she could make her delicious apple crisp for dessert...sublime! Never a shortage of sweets in the house as Mala's specialty is making desserts. The room is very large, very clean with its own bathroom also very well kept. Lots of hot water, a massive bed, TV and A/C when needed in the room. The B&B is well situated only 10 minutes from the airport and a short walk to a beautiful local park. Definitely consider it!
