“Truly a diamond in the rough!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

Cannot say enough how amazing this boutique hotel is! The staff is amazing (above and beyond), the atmosphere and décor are great, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the rooftop patio is romantic, the beers are cold and the food is DELICIOUS! A very special place in a very chaotic city. Truly a diamond in the rough!

Shanti home is surly a boutique style hotel with a home touch with all the advantages it come with.
Spcial Hotel The rooms are furnished with a lot of touch and soul .very clean and spacy
Excellent bathroom air-conditioning
The people at Shanti are super friendly and helpful and give you the most you can expect from a host,
The restaurant is very good.
came to this hotel after 3 nights in the ITC Maurya which is a super 5 star hotel and I still prefer the shanti home by far as I really felt in shanti home as I am in a real India for the good things India can offer.

Room Tip: not all te rooms are the same.

this hotel is a small boutique style establishment.
The rooms are modest but well appointed,clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom and a excellent airconditioner.
The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and make you feel like the most important guest they have. They arranged my pick-up and drop offs at the airport ,sightseeing trips and shopping experiences perfectly.
The restaurant offers a good selection of authentic local and western cuisine and once again are most obliging.
You are a little far from the city but they can arrange any trip or form of transport you need without any fuss.Single or female travellers can feel safe in their hands.
Wi-fi is free and a computer is availble for you to keep in contact.
You are in India so do not expect Sheraton or Hilton and you will not be dissapointed
I will definitely stay here everytime I am in Delhi.

Room Tip: take a stroll around the local evening market nearby or a rickshaw ride to the local mall.(not much...

The major problem with this hotel is the location. There is nothing good about it. It is in a residential area near a busy road far from the city. Sure it is close to the metro but that can be an ordeal in itself because the metro is completely overcrowded (I know that it is India). Its ok for a male but a female may not enjoy the trip. The walk to the Metro from Shanti home can also be horrific. This hotel is overpriced in my opinion for what is offered. It is suitable for a transit trip only. The hotel is only average with limited amenities (no tv etc). The restaurant is on the roof with no aircon so it is unbearable in summer months. The staff are certainly friendly and knowledgeable. Security seems good although safety deposit boxes are portable. There are pigeons nesting outside the bathroom. They were quiet when I had to use the fan. Rooms are adequate but do get traffic noise.

Room Tip: Don't get the rooms on the side of the busy road. The quiet side is bad enough.

We wanted to have a more luxurious hotel the last day in India, and chose Shanti Home based on tripadvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed.

The room (Bollywood) was nice, with modern furniture and Bollywood film effects. Great big bathroom with a tub, but alas - no hot water, just lukewarm.

The hotel have a roof-top restaurant, very romantic and quite good food.

It might be a little difficult for taxi-drivers to find, be sure that you have the hotels phone number at hand so that they can explain location to driver.

The easiest way to get around is by taking the metro. The station is about five, ten minutes walk away, and one of the hotel staff showed us the way and helped us with the tickets the first day. With metro it is about 40mins to Connaught Place.

We had a late flight, and it was very practical to leave the luggage at the hotel all day, after check-out. The staff was perfectly friendly and service-minded.

As a single female traveller in my 20's, I was nervous about where I would stay. Shanti home was amazing! The food is great, the service is great. The manager even created a personalized sight seeing list as to optimize my time in Delhi. The rooms are gorgeous and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I hope to stay there again. :) thank you!

I stayed at shanti home late June 2012 on my first night in India and I wanted to write this review once I had a taste of what other hotels in India were like.
Shanti home arranged a punctual and professional pick up service from the airport. The check in process initiated by punja was efficient and friendly and the room and bathroom was lovely, clean and modern. The breakfast was absolutely suburb and rivals breakfasts I have had at more expensive hotels (kempinski etc). The staff were very attentive and proud of the hotel, the staff were eager to have us try all of their breakfast menu( crepes/eggs etc made to order) and what I ate was delicious.
I think we were really spoiled at shanti home and I felt that our stay at other hotels (taj ganges gateway at varnasi, 4 points by Sheraton at Jaipur etc) lacked many things that shanti home provided. One huge thing was wifi which is free and quick at shanti home, this stands in stark comparison to other hotels which charge up to 240 rupees(excluding taxes) for half an hr(like the royal plaza dehli where our tour guide booked us in for our last night to our dismay)
The location of shanti home is the only minor complaint I have. It is however very quick to get into the city with the metro but with a car/ tuktuk it can take awhile with traffic. Some might appreciate being away from the hustle and bustle of the city though.
I just want to compliment the staff once again. Punja- the manager was genuine and hearty and even helped us Book some train tickets on her own credit card. She looked after my electronics while I was away and I received them safe and sound on my return to dehli.
The rest of the staff were as mention very attentive and kind. One of the young nepalese boys walked us to the metro in the searing heat and I wanted to give him a tip which he politely refused. This is amazing when you find that the majority of people in india actually unashamedly request and insist on tips(even when you think the service is questionable).
Shanti home, thank you once again for an amazing stay.
