“Om Shanti Home”
Reviewed May 13, 2008

The best hotel I've been in during my 12 days through Delhi an Rajasthan...
After 33 hours by train starting from Chennai, Oh Calcutta, my double bedroom, was quite an experience!

Don't leave the place without having dinner in the hotel's restaurant: chef Adil will make your dreams come true!!!

I booked 4 premium rooms for myself (Indian) and 3 of my Japanese colleagues for our business trip from4/28 to 5/3, 2008 through their website (No deposit or pre-payment). We were picked up at the airport with a Toyota Innova (minivan) for the same price of a Indica (medium hatchback) (Rs 650). After welcomed by garlands upon our arrival, we were introduced to our rooms and the facilities. The rooms were clean (almost as in the picture) with 24 hour hot water. Only shampoo and soap were in the bathroom. Our lady colleague were given a bigger, beautiful room with bathtub.

The place is close to Uttam Nagar East and Janakpuri West Metro station. The former is closer, but walking by a busy (and smelly) open market in the hot Indian summer is not a good experience. So, better go to the latter with a cycle-rickshaw (20 Rs, 15 minues). Ask Pooja, always ready-to-help front desk staff to arrange for a rickshaw. Remember the route because while coming back you may have to guide the Rickshaw puller to the hotel. Janakpuri West (JW) Metro station is also next to a district center with many nice restaurants. Have some coffee at Barista after your meal at the Chinese restaurant (forgot the name). If you go to Rajouri Garden (4 stations in between from JW, there are 4-5 shopping malls to hang around there. Rajat, owner of Shanti home, suggested us 'Punjabi by nature' at Center Stage Mall (?), which was fabulous.

The car hire from Shanti home were also reasonable with friendly and english speaking drivers. (@2000 Rs for an Innova, whole day). The closest gate of A-1 block, where Shanti home is located, is just left of Shanti home. Better remember that gate and the name of the street running in front of it if you are coming back by AutoRickshaw or taxi by yourself. The name is Pankha Road. I would suggest buying the Eicher Delhi Map (Rs 750) which is very detailed.

Shanti home is little far from center of Delhi (Cannaught place), but if you are in Delhi for sightseeing, this is a cool place to stay with the reasonable tariff (125USD/night with tax, premium room, breakfast included) . Free high speed complimentary wireless, safety box at room, complimentary mobile phone, a nice relaxing breakfast, an open roof top restaurant to relax with few beers in the evening with some delicious safe food, almost 24 hour room-service, smiling helpful staff are some of the features you can hardly find in even high-priced five star hotels in Delhi ( I have stayed in The Qutab, Intercontinental, Nikko and know Maurya). Rajat and Sanjana (Rajat's wife and manages Santi home) will probably come to you and ask you how are you at least once during your stay.

During our stay, one of colleague was lucky to have a very homely Happy B'day party with a complimentary cake and lots of wishes from everyone at Shanti home. Most of the clientele at Shanti home are westerners and few Japanese. Most of all, it is a secure place even for single lady and you will feel at home with the 24 hour customized service. Rajat told me he is opening a small gym shortly. My friend availed the 2 hour massage and steam bath for Rs1000, which according to him was reasonably good. All in all, after a hectic day in busy dusty (crazy ??) Delhi, you will definitely appreciate your every nice minute at this place. Good for singles and couples.
