Shanti Home is just a cracking little hotel. It's not too far from the airport which is a plus, especially for first timers not used to Delhi traffic- just keep looking out the side window in your taxi! It is a boutique hotel with only 12 rooms, very clean, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food served in the roof terrace is delicious and fresh cooked and the beer comes in iced glasses. There is a laptop for guests' use and they can even provide a mobile phone for using while in India. They will also provide help and advice for trips in and around Delhi. I spent a couple of nights here before going on a tour and can honestly say I was really looking forward to going back to Shanti and got the warmest welcome from the fantastic staff. The only word of warning is that there are a few steep steps which are unavoidable but there is a lift which covers 3 floors. It is also in a quiet location so easy to get a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed.

Room Tip: I was in a room on 2nd and 3rd floor and both were excellent

We liked the Shanti Home hotel in Delhi, particularly its airy roof terrace with views over the surrounding houses, because it was small, quiet, the food was good and breakfast was included (best gulab jamun on the trip and the breakfast buffet was fresh and varied) and the staff were friendly, attentive and smiley. It also provided little extras which more snobbish hotels chains (like the Trident in Agra) don’t, such as flower garlands on arrival, complementary tea (brought to the room) throughout our stay and free wifi. On the downside it was off the tourist trail though a nearby metro station meant it wasn’t totally cut off and our premium room was a tad scuffed (a cupboard handle was missing and the safe didn’t work) and could have done with more decorations, but it was clean, large and relatively quiet which is all we require from a city hotel. We’d definitely stay there again, especially as we really (and surprisingly for us who aren’t urban fans) liked the little we saw of Delhi.

I just returned from a fantastic trip to India which I began and ended with a stay at Shanti Home. India is pure magic but in the first days after arrival it can be a pretty intense experience for travellers, especially for those visiting for the first time. I highly recommend Shanti Home as the place to ease your way in. The staff couldn't be more kind and helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and the food is delicious. And Pooja, the manager, is super sweet and great at arranging and advising you on whatever you want in terms of your time in Delhi and beyond. They really take care of you. I read the review above about the location not being great. Yes, there's a lot going on in the area--a market and major bus stop--but that's India, so jump on in. The metro is really close and it's a great transportation system with the first car of every train reserved for women only and if you aren't interested in experiencing a little of the crazy Delhi street life, then Shanti Home will arrange a car to take you wherever you want to go and it's very reasonable. In my opinion, Shanti Home is an excellent choice and I'll stay there again and again.

This was our first trip to India, a long-awaited dream. Being in Delhi proved to be hectic, noisy, wonderful, challenging and exhausting so that coming back to Shanti Home at the end of the day was a treat. The hotel is quirky and charming with a great rooftop restaurant serving good food. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and when we returned at the end of our two week holiday it was like coming home! Twice we had to get up at 3 in the morning - once to catch a train and then to catch our flight home - and the staff were so accomodating with early morning cups of tea and snacks. it is some distance from the centre of Delhi but you get an insight into important aspects of life in Delhi you would otherwise miss so I'd definitely recommend it.

We spent our first two nights here on our first trip to India and it was a great place. It was a bit of a splurge for us but it was worth it. The hotel itself is charming. The service was top-notch - manager Pooja was very helpful with booking our train tickets. The food on the rooftop patio was some of the best we had on our trip. The included breakfast was superb.
We also appreciated the use of tip-jars, which avoids the potential awkwardness of having tipping staff individually.
The only down-side is the distance from the center of the city, though we used the metro as our primary means of getting around, so it wasn't much of a problem. A staff member took us to the station the first time - not what I'd call a relaxing stroll, but hey, this is India.
