More about Shanti Home
very nice inside,good restaurant for residents only
From the outside,just a narrow home frontage but inside it is very homely and nicely furnished. Clean comfortable rooms, each room decorated in different Indian style. It is run by the owners and they are very helpful and go out of their way to assist.
Take hotel directions from the web site as taxis will not find it easily. Better still, ask the hotel to pick you up from the airport/station.
The restaurant is on the terrace, open to hotel guests only. It is small but very friendly staff and they will cook anything you want- their Indian meals are excellent.
It is in a residential area so not much to see around but the metro station is nearby. We were 7 in our group, so had the restaurant and the Staff to ourselves most of the time.
Each of the three floors has a common sitting area for after noon teas etc and one of them has a free lap top computer.
Good value and a nice place to start or finish your India trip.
The home is really in New Delhi but for reason we could not understand, it is classsed under Delhi in the Trip Advisor!
Approx 20 min by car from the airport and 20-30 min to Delhi city centre.
Stayed at the Shanti Home for 3 days. Even though this hotel is is a bit of a distance, with a 30 minute cab ride from the Delhi Airport and Raiway station the hotel is well worth it.
A family run botique style hotel with excellent service. The hotel is very nice with all the comforts, and decorated with pieces of art throughout.
For about $100 per night it is a very good value compared to some of the other large hotel chains in the area.
It is also located within walking distance to the new metro rapid transit system ($0.50) which will take you downtown to New Delhi, and on to the Red Fort ($2.50 entrance fee) which is a must see while in Delhi.
Hotel is highly recommended!
Home away from home
We arrived at Shanti house late at night with our family of 6 plus our parents. We were greeted warmly, with fruit juice and an offer of food on the roof top restaurant. Our rooms were all ready, clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were also quite spacious. The hotel had arranged a van/driver for us during our stay which was so helpful since we were traveling with older people.
The day we made the long drive to the Taj Mahal, the staff got up early enough to make us breakfast, packed us a snack/lunch, and were still ready and waiting for us when we returned at 10 p.m. so we could have dinner. All the staff was friendly, accommodating, and helpful - a gift when you are traveling with family from 8 to 77 years old!
The food at the restaurant was very good, and we loved the breakfast choices as well. This hotel is a very good value for money in Delhi.
Ajai , new york
My delhi trip was short and sweet, stayed there for 4 days, far from airport but very clean, extra pleasant and helpful staff. owners Mr and Mrs, Rajat are very professional, hands on. tour drivers was very relaible. great food. " licked fingers " ( good job Chef Adil ).
Nice hotel with remote location
Shanti home is a nice place with beutiful and clean rooms. The staff is helpful but they charge you quite heavily for travel services (we paid 500 Rs for a 20 minute taxidrive to a nearby trainstaion. With a helpful driver but still quite heavy).
They have a restaurant with fantastic food in the evenning and a rather confused service for breakfast.
The hotel is situated in the suburbs, but only som 400 meters from the subway station. It takes about 20-25 minutes to the first junction and another 5-10 minutes to Connaugh Place. Not to bad but not to good either, and the walk from the sub way station to the hotel can be quite stress full at night if this is your first visit to India.
We paid 5000 Rs for a standard room which seems to be quite good value in Delhi.
I can't fault this beautiful hotel
I decide to stay at Shanti based on the glowing reviews I had read on TripAdvisor from previous guests and am so glad I did. I absolutely loved this hotel. I had origianlly only booked for 2 nights but ended up staying at the hotel several nights on 3 seperate occasions while travelling to/from Agra, Jaipur & Amritsar. The hotel is about a 15 minute metro ride from central Delhi but having spent a day being hassled in central Delhi I was glad of this. The metro station is just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel and is extremely safe, clean, cheap and very easy to use. There are also some very good, modern shopping malls about 4 metro stops away or a short rickshaw ride away so I was very happy with the location. The hotel is clean, beautifully furnished and decorated and every room I stayed in was absolutely gorgeous. I can highly recommend the treatments provided in the spa, especially the facials which were fantastic and a great way to relax and wind down after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The food was great with the chef coming to our table every evening to ensure we were happy and had enjoyed our meal. The staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. They attended to our every whim and seemed genuinely pleased to assist us in any way possible. As beautiful as the hotel is it is the staff that make it extra special. I just can't fault the hotel in any way and would highly recommend it.
Shanti Home was a welcome final stop in our tour of India. Although we arrived very early my Father and I were treated extremly well, given a spotlessly clean room with every wish granted. This hotel is a gem in the city of Delhi, has fantastic transport links and the best staff anyone could wish for.
This stay gave us very special memories of India!
I'll be back!
Great boutique hotel!
We stayed at Shanti Home in New Delhi for 4 nights and loved it! The staff is fabulous whether it's the front desk (so helpful with everything!) or the waiters at the rooftop restaurant. The food is so spectacular it was hard to eat anywhere else (though we thought we should to experience India to the fullest). The rooms are very comfortable with big beds, soft lighting, and large bathrooms. Each floor has a sitting area with books and there is a free internet. The hotel is very stylish and comfortable. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the spa area. We got massages and didn't realize it wouldn't be the traditional swedish massage, and instead were treated to lots of slaps, hard kneading, and fast rubbing. It was strange coming from the US. The staff also answered their cell phones during the massage, which I also think we found strange due to the fact we're used to going to US spas. Other than that, we found Shanti Home to be a great new hotel with wonderful staff, convenient location, and nice amenities. We'll hopefully be back!
So truly thankful we stumbled across the Shanti, the proverbial quiet oasis amongst the hustle. Small unassuming boutique style , much thought & detal has gone into this establishment.
Tastefully furnished rooms with luxuriant huge mattress. On a peaceful residential street so opt for a room on the front, no room tv you don't need it, I spent hours on the balony watching Delhi life happen by.
Rooftop restaurant where the chef cooks everything freshly to order.
5 mins walk from metro, 30 mins to city centre.
Perfectly charming hostess/host, the host Rajat in particular is the ultimate smooser, whilst you enjoy your dinner he addresses all guests to ensure they've had a good day & will assist above & beyond.
Staff very attentive & seen to be treated with respect, they try very hard to get it right.
Our endorsement with pleasure,stay here.
Such a comfort!
I absolutely loved this place. From the moment my friend and I set foot in the hotel lobby we were cared for by the warm and friendly staff and owners. We were served mango juice and given fresh flowers while we waited to check in. The environment is peaceful and comforting which was a great relief after our long travels. I had my most restful sleep out of my time in India during the two nights I stayed at Shanti Home. The rooms are modern and very tasfully decorated. The rooftop restuarant is also excellent with some of the tasiest garlic naan and paneer tikka. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially those visiting India for the first time.

In answer to another question about safe, reasonable accommodation for single ladies, there was a response from Mystic Travels in New Delhi saying that they could recommend suitable accommodation in private homes. I would be very interested in this. How can I get in touch with Mystic Travels? I couldn't find a website, but will be arriving in Delhi on September 24 and can take a few days to look for suitable accommodation for the next couple of weeks.
RE: Mystic Travels
Why don't you try the International Youth hostels. They are located very conveniently , are SAFE and reasonably priced. You can check on website/ google and get their details. In case you don't, mail me and I will try to send. Welcome to India
RE: Mystic Travels
Please check Master Gust House in New Rajander nager and another is Blue Trangle near Bangla Shab Gurutowars is the best place to stay in Delhi.
RE: Mystic Travels
I would suggest also if you want to go to Agra or Jaipur travel by train. By far the safest way to travel.
