“A great and satisfying experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

This hotel is the 'Jewel in the crown' of a visit to Delhi. Peace and tranquility deep in this vibrant city yet only some 25 minutes from the international airport.
Very much a 'boutique' style hotel, family owned and managed; the staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for the weary visitor.
The vibrant roof top restaurant serving wonderful food 24/7 allows for a clear view over the rooftops into the city. Very peaceful and a delight to visit.
Cannot praise this hotel enough and a refreshing change from the rather boring 'international' style hotels so many of us are used to.

This hotel was a great find. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The décor is absolutely fantastic with themed bedrooms and beautiful old Indian antiques throughout. The bathrooms are much better than they appear in the photographs. All the staff were friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived to when we left - nothing was too much trouble. We were given a guided tour of the whole hotel on arrival and notified of what was available there. The restaurant is also excellent on the roof top and in our opinion it offered the best food we had eaten throughout our 3 week holiday in India. We will certainly be taking advantage of visiting again and booking in for some cookery lessons next time. The waiters and kitchen staff were extremely helpful making great suggestions for what we should eat. It was so lovely that when the staff found out that it was my birthday that they brought a surprise birthday cake to our dining table and all the staff came out to sing happy birthday - it was just magical and I can't thank the staff enough for making my birthday very special. We also appreciated all the help we had with the hotel organising and arranging our full day of Delhi sightseeing. We have stayed both here and at the Radisson Blu Plaza and we can confirm that the Shanti Home beats the Radisson Blu Plaza on all service levels and in our opinion costs too.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bollywood - it was great with a 4 poster bed. No view out the window but that didn...

A colleague and I stayed at Shanti home while visiting Delhi and Agra. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and gave us excellent service! We were greeted with a welcome drink and hot masala tea and cookies brought to my room after check-in. My room had a lovely 4-poster bed, which was very comfortable. It was on the street-side, but I never had any issue with noise.

The first day of our visit was Republic Day, and the hotel staff planned a lovely 8 course dinner of "old" recipes for all of the guests in their rooftop restauarant. It was a really nice event to meet other guests and exchange stories. The rooftop restuarant is half open-air, the other half (main-dining area) is covered. Even in the cool evenings, the heater lamps work work very nicely. All dinners and breakfasts were delicious, and the service was extremely attentive (but not over-bearing).

The hotel arranged taxis for us to visit Agra and - on another day - to visit Delhi. They took care of the taxi fees in our hotel bill, which elimiated our worries about haggling over the price at the end of the day. And the prices for the all day taxis they got us were very good.

Shanti Home also offers yoga and cooking classes. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to take advantage. They also have a small "store" where you can pick up any souveniers you might want.

I would highly reccommend Shanti Home as a base for visiting Delhi and Agra! I would reccommend it for couples, friends, families with children, and solo travelers.

I stayed in Shanti Home two times during my trip and both times everything was perfect. The rooms were beautiful, service very friendly, breakfasts and dinners delicious (you can also eat and watch Indian movie in a tv-room...) All people working in Shanti are really professionals and doing their best. The metro is near but we also had pick ups from airport, trip to Agra and whole day shopping in Delhi by car, Shanti took care of all this. Thank you, Shanti people!

Tricky to find but once you're there it's fabulous. Very very good food, gorgeous roof terrace, uber-attentive staff who couldnt have done more to make us feel more welcome. We had mendhi done on the roof whilst having a drink before dinner and there was also the opportunity for yoga and cookery class which we didn't have time for. The perfect place to stay in Delhi as it's near the airport. Western standards all round with authentic Indian charm throughout. We loved it and cannot wait to stay again.

We (one couple) stayed at Shanti Home two nights while in Delhi from 12-13 Feb 13. We chose Shanti Home primarily based on Tripadvisor reviews. I feel the positive reviews are accurate and we were not disappointed. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and courteous. We booked Shanti Home directly via email and arranged for an airport transfer thru the hotel. When we departed the baggage claim area at approx 0100 hrs, a driver was waiting for us. The hotel is located in a quiet location. Our room on level 1 was about 10x11 (feet) and adequate for our needs. There was a common sitting area outside our room. This area expanded our living space. There is a laptop computer in the common area for use by
guests. This common area was especially nice since it gave me an area to sit and read or browse the internet without disturbing the spouse. Breakfast was included. We ate our other meals in their restaurant and the food was very good. Shanti Home also made arrangements for a car and driver, which we used for day touring in Delhi, and a separate car and driver which we used for a two day trip to Agra. I would suggest that any agreements you make with Shanti Home regarding the use of the vehicle are conveyed to the driver in your presence. I I would stay at Shanti Home again, but my spouse would prefer a more central location.

Four of us stayed at Shanti Home recently. A real feel of India in a local small hotel. Quaint, cute, interesting with lovely attentive staff. Take breakfast and dinner on the attractive roof top bar / dining room. Terrific food from very skilled chefs. We can't recommend this hotel enough. We loved it! And they are to open one in Goa soon. Can't wait!!
