“Great host- Felt like we were staying with family”
Reviewed January 13, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

To start off, my wife and I only booked for one night and ended up staying for our whole trip in India. The room was clean and tidy, the staff was kind and the host went over his way to make our stay a most memorable one. He helped us find our way to all the interest points in the city and arranged our tours. We met other guest from other countries and all bonded as we spent time together. We got the best out of India and felt like we were family. It was a wonderful experience and I completely recommend it.

“The best host I've ever had”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I've been traveling many years, and Abhi was the best host I've ever had anywhere. When we arrived, he gave us detailed maps with lots of info, thoughts for planning our time, and answered questions. He patiently helped us through India's currency crisis, was kind and available, and yesterday (days after our stay),kept us from getting swindled out of 42,000 rupies by someone we were told worked for the government. When our PayPal account payed him twice, after we had left the city, he helped us to pay another hostel we were staying at. His hostel is beautiful and out of the way from the noise of central Delhi, the rooms are lovely, and we were very comfortable and happy. His help set us up for our whole time in India. Very very grateful, and highly recommended ! Thanks, Abhi!

“"Probably the best place in Delhi"”
Reviewed December 23, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Surprisingly clean and welcoming place in India. I recommend this hotel. The owner, himself a traveler, relates very kind to every guest. Always will help to tell you about the places to visit in the city. Affordable price and great location, friendly host to meet and help you, his ability and experience about travelling will make your stay a memorable one in the Indian capital. I travel a lot, and I can say with certainty that you will feel at home here.

“What a wonderful Host!”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

My fiancée and I stayed at the Meditation Place for 5 nights. Delhi was our last stop before heading home after 6 weeks of travelling around Asia. Abhi was super welcoming and always there for a chat and support. He also introduced us to fellow travellers staying at the hostel, so we felt like at home :) Definitely a place to recommend!

Meditation palace is an amazing place to stay. Very comfortable and clean. You dont feel like you stay in a hotel but in a hospitable and caring family. Abhishek takes care of all guests and tries to help everybody. I fully enjoyed my stay and looking forward to comeback. Thank you.

“Host with the Most!”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The reviews sure don't lie in regards to Abhi! We arrived the day after the government ceased any currency notes above 100 Rupees (1.25£) and so as we arrived at the airport there was no cash anywhere to be seen. Slightly stranded we managed to pay for a pre paid taxi with sterling, we made it to Meditation Palace and Abhi explained the situation. He kindly swapped 100£ sterling for us the following day (all in 100s and 20s) which has literally saved our trip; and to think each person can only get 2000-4000 rupees out a day by queuing for a few hours at the bank! A week has passed and there are no signs of the cash situation getting any better! So his kindness really went beyond his duty.

Asides from that, Abhi gave us a list of some touristy must do's - and following his recommendations we went to Akshardham and the gurudwara bangla sahib - experiences we won't forget! He even gave us metro cards to use, and ordered us taxis at great prices when needed.

We feel so lucky to have chosen this place to stay at for the beginning of our trip and see the wonders of Delhi.

Also a great little mall with nice food two minute walk away.

The place was clean and safe and three nights was a perfect amount of time to get settled in! Excuse the hard mattress and mozzies, it's all about the location and Abhi!

So thanks again Abhi! :)

“It’s not always about the place but mostly about the people”

After 2 weeks in India, with all sorts of ups and downs (you have to live it to understand the contrast and difference between Asia and Europe) we were looking ahead to the last 3 nights in Delhi.

At the time, we thought there was not much to surprise us…but “never say never” because history is being written all the time and governments never sleep…so, there were we, 2 already tired travelers facing the currency exchange decisions – hungry, worried, and in a couple of sentences…moneyless.

That’s the moment when Abhi’s great host skills got activated (even though you could see him worried as hell) starting with letting every guest in the property know about the changes, assuring them of all the needed support, thinking ahead of the potential situations in the next days and continuing with endless discussions about almost anything – culture, history, life, friends, family, politics - whatever needed to create the optimal context for his guests to enjoy their stay at the property and forget about the negative uncontrollable aspects.

Probably there could have been a better mattress, or cleaner bathroom, maybe less mosquitoes, etc., but the comfort of a safe place and relying host surpasses anything.

So, dear future guest, no matter the time during your trip you decide to visit Delhi, if you want an educated, open minded, friendly, close to control freak and always willing to help, host, this is the place to be.
