This review is belated.....but this was a lovely place to stay and I have meant to write about it and am doing so now, even though our stay was in March of 2010.
For those looking to enjoy a true Indian experience, rather than an "American-abroad-stay -in-a Hilton"-experience, Shanti Home is a great choice. The rooms are air-conditioned, clean and comfortable. The owner/manager and staff could not be more accomodating. We used Shanti home as our base for 21 days while we took 5 out of town trips. We left our large luggage there, which they stored for us for 3 days at a time, took us either to the airport or train station, and on our return set us up again in rooms and brought our luggage and clean laundry to us. We were greeted at the end of many short hop trips by the driver from Shanti home, who was always!! there to greet us. On our arrival each time, the staff surrounded us, asked about our trip, grabbed our luggage and escorted our tired bodies to the office where we were invariably given ice cold juice while we waited to be taken to our rooms. The people were absolutely lovely to us. There is an open air rooftop garden restaurant that serves 3 meals a day...delicious in the moring....warm/hot at noontime and delicious at night for outdoor dining. Our son was our escort and speaks fluent Hindi and Urdu, so of course that made our stay unique and a total joy, as he could interact with everyone....but many many people of course speak English.
Do not expect this to be a cookie-cutter replica of the local Marriott, but do yourself a favor and stay in this inter-city.hotel...the surrounding area is the city teaming with the crowded conditions in India, but within the walls of Shanti Home you are treated like a visiting dignitary. For a comfortable Indian-experience hotel, I could not recommend this hotel any higher.
If you are reading this from Shanti home, thank you again, one and all , for your kindness to us........ from the parents of Dr. Jeffrey.
