  • Aradhna's place was delightful as always. The rooms, the food, and the service was impeccable. This is truly a charming little gem tucked away in South Delhi. From arranging airport pickups to luggage storage, On the House was amazing, and I will definitely stay here again!

  • The pine room lived upto all its promise. Tastefully done room with all the amenities mentioned in the listing. Caretakers were super friendly and accommodating. The location of the room made my Delhi trip convenient. I strongly recommend this place to other guests.

  • Do NOT stay here.

    I stayed for two nights with my wife and two kids.
    A month before we stayed at Vandana’s bread and breakfast which is in the same block. We had comfortable stay but Aradhna’s place looked better so we opted for Aradhna’s place this time.
    I live 300 KM from Delhi, went by road in my own car. I called Aradhna at 7 Pm the time of my arrival. She told me I should call Mr. Nanda’s number.
    Neither of them were present when we reached.

    On arrival we were given Room 1.
    Room 1 has Split air conditioner. It works but not at all effective. It was so hot that we had to shift.

    We were shifted to Room 2. This room has window air conditioner. The air condition is old and noisy. Staff was very helpful they showed us Room 3 and shifted our luggage there.

    Room 3: Air conditioning is good and no noise. The size bed is very small. Room size is small, you will feel claustrophobic. We choose this room because air conditioning was good.
    So the first night we had to shift three times.
    Aradnha or Nanda they never bothered did not have courtesy to call.

    Room 3, toilet is very small. Shower has no pressure. It drips. Yes it drips.

    Second night at 11 PM. Light went off. No Power.
    Their battery back up dose not works.
    Imagine staying in a dark room with no light no fan and the room temperature is 42 degrees centigrade.
    Everyone in neighborhood has battery backup except this house. I called Mr. Nanda he says power will be back in ten minutes.
    Mr. Nanda has generator backup but he won’t use it for guests.

    No electricity for next three hours from eleven at night till two in the morning. We stayed in room for an hour then went downstairs. I switched on air condition of car and spent next two hours in the car with my family
    Aradhna so called host, Mr. Nanda who owns this place never bothered to call back or meet me.
    I strongly recommend air bnb to remove them from their website.

  • I had a wonderful experience at On The House (OTH). I've stayed in several Airbnb listed rooms in Delhi — some in private homes, some that are actual B&Bs — and OTH is a cut above the rest in several ways:

    First, the bathrooms are nicer than you'll find in most other places in this price range (and even above). Clean, spacious, plenty of counter space, and well lit.

    Second, the staff is very friendly. Present enough to be helpful, but very respectful of privacy. They were extremely helpful throughout my stay — and I'm saying this as someone who's had plenty of Delhi experience.

    Third, the location is central with easy access to many important parts of the city. 30-40 mins to Connaught Place, 20-25 mins to Lutyens Delhi, right next door to Hauz Khas Village and all the comfortable parts of South Delhi, 20 mins to the major malls of S Delhi, 20-30 mins to the airports, and it's a pretty easy shot to Gurgaon. The one downside is that it's a fairly long walk to the nearest metros AIIMS and Green Park (though there's an abundance of auto rickshaws two blocks from OTH).

    I will definitely be staying here again. Staying with a well run operation like OTH makes time in Delhi so much easier.

    Note: I stayed here in May, a very hot time of year for Delhi, and the AC/ceiling fan combo worked out very well — super comfy :)

  • We loved this BnB and would stay here again. The staff were very friendly, great cooks, and generally ready to go beyond the call of duty to help out. The decorations were superb and inspiring. We are a little hesitant to leave another positive review as this might leave little vacancy for our future stays in Delhi!

  • Estuvimos en India dos días. A pesar del caos de la ciudad, tuvimos una gran estadía en la casa! Roger y el otro sujeto (que olvide el nombre) fueron realmente muy amables con nosotros y nos ayudaron en todo momento ! La casa muy limpia y ubicada en una zona tranquila de Delhi. Eso sí, haces 4 cuadras y el caos comienza ! Gracias por todo !

    Hello Diego,
    I am glad you had a nice time. I am translating your review from Spanish to English below:

    We were in India two days. Despite the chaos of the city, we had a great stay in the house! Roger and the other guy (I forget the name) were really nice to us and helped us in any time! Very clean home located in a quiet area of ​​Delhi. Of course, doing 4 blocks and chaos begins you! Thanks for everything!

    March 2014
  • On the House is a really charming place in a nice quiet location. A wonderful staff person Roger was available 24/7 to help with transport and lots of information, and even shared a map with important landmarks already marked. The host was also very accommodating to our complicated schedule with a big group coming in and out of Delhi. Overall it was a great stay with a great host.

    March 2014
    Response from Aradhna:

    Thank you Dara. We are happy that you and your group enjoyed your stay with us and found Roger & my Dad who met you a great host. Come again.

  • My friend and I stayed with Aradhna for a night. It was supposed to be a longer stay, but my trip got changed around last minute and Aradhna was very accommodating in terms of us arriving late. The room was exactly what was shown and Roger (the housekeeper) is also very nice and helped arranged cabs/airport pick up, as well as served us an early morning breakfast. Definitely recommend this place if you want a conveniently located room in a safe neighborhood with welcoming hosts. It is very much a bed and breakfast style, so they did a great job of making us feel at home without imposing on us in the slightest. Thanks again!

    Response from Aradhna:

    Eugene we loved having you as much as you loved staying with us. Our man Friday Roger is a wonderful & helpful guy. We look forward to hosting you again.

  • Upon arrival, there was a mix up as the room booked had been given away to someone else.

    But it was quickly rectified by the staff and I received a better room. The staff is absolutely superb, competent, warm, friendly, and attentive. Roger is definitely the star there !!

    Overall, great stay and would recommend !
