G - 49 Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #20 of 1,109 New Delhi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 March 2012

This little B&B is so much more than just a place to stay.

The staff is informal and friendly and always ready to help. I can't say enough about how helpful they were and how much I appreciate their hospitality. That alone is reason enough to stay, but there's more.

There is a wonderful little outdoor sitting area, shaded by flowering trees and other foliage and a little indoor library with all sorts of guides and other interesting reads. This area doubles as the dining room which is one big table... there are just 7 rooms and breakfast is pretty much all morning so you may meet a few of your fellow guests in the morning.

Breakfast itself is fairly flexible too - eggs, sausage, toast, jams, honey, and a couple of Indian things (upma and idli), all made to order.

The place is tastefully and creatively decorated in soothing pastels with niches of artwork. There is a lot of attention to detail at this B&B.

Laundry service is available and they'll call a cab or arrange airport transfers - whatever you need.

The rooms are fantastic. Even the smallest one is large enough for at least two. The rest of the rooms are practically palatial and some have balconies. Each has a sizable and wonderful stone bath (shower only). There's cable tv, a/c, a heater (I still don't believe it ever gets cold enough in Delhi for it, but there it is), big windows that open, an electric kettle, and maybe a few other things.

There's no in-room safe but you don't need it. Everyone who enters and leaves the place is known and the employees/owner will never enter your room unless you leave your key with them. Or just give them what you want safeguarded. It's so safe and quiet and just the place the escape the noise and chaos of Delhi.

The location is in a residential area on a leafy street in a nice little neighborhood. It's an easy walk to the small commercial area at the neighborhood's entrance where taxis and autos await - or you can venture on to the busy street and catch a bus or other form of passing transport.

There are quite a few restaurants about a 10-15 minute walk away around an enormous (6 stories at least) mosque. You can choose grilled meats from streetside vendors, small informal little restaurants, or the venerable Hotel Karim (hotel often means restaurant in these parts). Hotel Karim is a pretty fancy affair located down a crowded alley. A lot of these place are open late into the night.

Speaking of which, that whole area around the mosque is teeming with humanity and can seem daunting but the majority of these people are pilgrims from around the world visiting the mosque. It's just crazy-crowded, not dangerous.

Up the road a bit from there is an very old shrine (Hizrat Nizzamuddin) with all kinds of flowers, souvenirs, and other offerings to be found along the way.

Getting back to the B&B from this area is a snap - there are bicycle rickshaws waiting in abundance for just 30 rupees (about 60 cents) and if you know the name, you know the address.

On the other end of the neighborhood, Jangpura Metro station is about a 20 minute walk through another residential neighborhood and that's very convenient. Even if I didn't feel like walking, I'd take an auto to it for less than $1 and go on from there - so much better than the blaring noise of sitting in traffic, not to mention the heat.

There's a train station with direct trains to Agra (Taj Mahal) over that way as well.

This is my first choice of places to stay in Delhi. Just don't tell anyone else - let's keep it our secret.

Cozy and chic. I felt relaxed, calm, and ease at home.
Enjoyed the dining room, the surprisingly modern bathroom, and the elegant courtyard with trees and bamboo. I can feel the ingenuity and attention in every detail.
The breakfast was prosperous and delicious.
Mr. Amarjeet Singh is the best manager I've ever met. All staffs are caring and considerate.
A home that I can relax myself and be refilled with energy!

Excellent B&B! Breakfast is brilliance; Location is very convenient. It's in a residential area, you feel you're very local. I had a long trip plan. After India I would go to china, so I had two big luggage with my winter clothes etc. When I left Delhi to other part of India, I left one luggage behind the guest house for around 15 days. Mr. Amarjeet the great host and manager even organised to delivery it for me at the airport. It's a great helpful! Thanks so so much again!

Really cute, comfortable place in a quiet neighborhood. Mr. Amarjeet Singh is an amazing host and manager - and took really great care of us. Felt really safe and at home. Rooms very cozy and done up nicely. Really liked the drawing room and the dining room.

Room Tip: The up stair rooms are nice.

This is an amazing B&B, especially for the price. It is conveniently located in Nizamuddin West. The area is a quiet residential area, but it is not far from most of the major locations within Delhi. Humayun's tomb is a stone throw away, the rest requires only a short journey by auto-rickshaw. There is also metro station (Jangpura) fairly nearby (about a 15 minute walk away). The manager, Amarjeet, is helpful and understands the different needs of his guests. The rooms are great, airy, tastefully decorated and clean. Wi-fi is available. I was able to work on my computer in my room without any distraction. One thing I noticed is that most of the other guests had stayed here before and keep coming back. I can see why, having stayed at another similarly priced B&B. Next time Im in Delhi I will certainly book a room here.
