Sham Nath Villa
Ranked #5 of 1,135 New Delhi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I stay at Shalini's house for several days in between our trips in India and Sri Lanka. Shalini was so helpful, giving us advice on where to go, helping us and recommending places to stay. Shalini knows all the best places: from sightseeing to shopping and eating! The food was excellent, you can even ask Shalini for a cooking course.

I could not recommend a better place to stay in New Delhi-Shalini's hosting skills make all the difference- I miss her already :(

Have you ever tried to write a review of your house or home? I never have, and this is why I even don’t know where to start…

We wanted to stay in Delhi in the nice green place with the backyard, balcony, etc. Therefore, we selected the ShamNathVilla based on the people’s feedback, photos, and its history. (Check their web site to learn more http://shamnathvilla.com/).

Upon arrival, we felt that the entire place was waiting for us. After the short rest, we came downstairs and met Shalini. That moment changed so many things in our lives. With Shalili’s magic our stay in Delhi transformed into unforgettable experience.

I can’t describe the delicious homemade meals made just for us, carefully tailored itineraries to meet our interests to see Delhi, Rajasthan, and Amritsar, trips to the local temples...

If you seek a perfection of the Hilton or Taj hotels, you will not find it here. But if you are looking for the place in the hectic Delhi where you can find a new peaceful home and meet new interesting people, then stay at ShamNathVilla.

We just stayed for one night, but the place was perfectly clean and comfortable! With everything you need. The Owner was really really nice and ready to help! I definitively suggest this place for these reasons. Unfortunately we had to go on, and leave Delhi!

Their service was above average, the staff was well trained, knew the area well and were quick to offer directions, suggestions and local information. The accomodations are beautiful, and the location is perfect. More costly but truly worth the extra money. I highly recommend it and will return

Stayed here last January with my wife and daughter. (Sorry I took so long to write the review Shalina, but we were traveling). As all the other reviewers emphasize, this has to be one of the best places to stay in New Delhi.

We were treated like members of the family, and it was so interesting to talk with Shalini every evening about our experiences that day and about India in general. Shalini is a very warm and intelligent woman, and staying in her house, we felt we were guests in a home from another era.

Was room was private, and we had a lot of space to ourselves in which to roam, including a kitchen, balcony and out-sized sitting area.

The food here is so good we saw no reason to eat elsewhere.

Everything was reasonably and fairly priced.

Shalina -- I enjoyed our conversations so much. I hope to return some day. Maybe I will see you in England!

Shalini has a loyal following and, having experienced her wonderful hospitality at Sham Nath Villa, it is easy to see why. Home stays are all about feeling welcome in another persons home - andShalini has elevated this to the highest standard. Nothing is too much trouble and every guest receives individual care and attention. When you are putting together your own itinerary sound advice and introductions to reliable guides, drivers, etc. are hugely appreciated.

We will not hesitate to book again for our next Delhi trip, and hope that it will be very soon.

We arrived in Delhi in the early hours and were totally overwhelmed. After a hair-raising taxi ride (my advice would be to have a car arranged by the hotel) we arrived at Sham Nath Villa which was an oasis of calm, and despite the early hour we were welcomed by Shalini, given breakfast and were able to access our room. Shalini then organised our metro cards, gave us an itinerary and off we went to discover Delhi;as the metro is an easy walk away getting around is very easy. We ate there each evening as the food and company were so good. I can't add any more to all the brilliant reviews except to say that I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Delhi.
