Lutyens Bungalow

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a spectacularly good place to stay in Delhi. The location is phenomenal: not too far from the airport, and smack-dab in the middle of one of the ritziest parts of the city. No, the hotel itself is not the height of luxury, but is great, great value for what you get: it's extremely clean and comfortable. Think of it more like a sprawling family home with odd rooms scattered about than what you'd typically think of as a hotel. Still, the service is there. The hosts are attentive and full of incredibly good suggestions. Breakfast is a simple, laid-back affair. It is a bit hard to find as there is no sign outside. Why anyone would give this place a low rating is beyond me!

I have stayed here many times over the last two years. It is a very good guest house with Swimming Pool and Basketball Court etc The rooms are a little smallish but they are clean and the bathrooms are well maintained with shower facilities comparable to any five star hotel.

Stayed in similar highly rated Guest houses in town but this is far better and the sit out for breakfast etc is very good and attractive. So one can have breakfast in the company of exotic birds etc Theres an honesty bar too and the owners are not intrusive..for Delhi that is a bonus!!!

I like this place though it looks shabby from outside. Am HOOKED!!!

Room Tip: Donot take a room by the road side. Vehicles move in the area 24/7!!!

We had two short stays at Lutyens Bungalow during February 2012. When we arrived for the second time it felt almost like getting back home. For both visits we had clean, airy rooms with a full range of facilities. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, following the tone set by Shukla Nath, the owner. Mealtimes are great fun, as everybody mucks in together and you hear some fascinating travellers tales. It is very easy to get into central Delhi as there is a Metro station about 10 minutes walk away.
After a disappointing experience with a different Delhi hotel in 2011 we would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

This was a lovely place to stay and the owner and staff made me feel very welcome. The rooms are very clean and well maintained and food is good. This place has a lovely atmosphere and you meet some amazing people that stay here. Walking distance to Lodhi gardens where al lot of the guests would take a morning stroll or run. I was travelling on my own and I felt very much at home here. It was lovely to sit in the garden and relax, watch the parrots and squirrells in the middle of Delhi.
Great location and lovely owner.

We have stayed here several times. The rooms are small but spotless. The hotel will arrange pick-up from the airport. It's easy to contact them via phone or email. The food is delicious. Meals are eaten "family style" and you'll meet an interesting group of visitors. The organic garden is beautiful and peaceful. Not a posh place, but very comfortable for the mid - range traveler.
