I would like to recommend Roop and Smiley's Bed and Breakfast as a great place to stay when visiting New Delhi, India. We spent a week with them and had the most wonderful experience of our six week trip to India. Their friendly and warm conversations added greatly to our trip. The breakfast was the best ever and if we had stayed longer I would have gained weight. Being from the USA and visiting India there are a lot of things you don't know and they filled this void for us in terms of what to see and do to how to purchase other goods and services. In this respect Roop went above and beyond to help us enjoy our trip. We will be staying with them again on our next trip to India. I highly recommend this B & B to anyone staying in the New Delhi area.
I, Colonel T N Baba, retired from Indian Army, know Roop Chand Balwada and his wife Risal since more than 30 years. Roop Chand is a thorough gentleman with fine qualities which makes him a great human being. Risal a fine lady with ever smiling disposition is a good conversationalist. While we served together in the Army we had interacted well and got to know each others family. My late wife Rama used to be very appreciative of the hospitality of Roop Chand and Risal. My children were very happy to visit their home which provided a very homely feeling and also enjoyed the delicious food prepared by Risal.
Roop Chand and Risal make a very good team of hosts who look after their guests as per the great Indian ethos "Adithi Devo Bhava" meaning Guest is like God. They are blessed with two wonderful children who have accomplished a lot in life. Roop Chand and Risal have traveled extensively in India and also in United States and some parts of Europe. Their zest for life and eagerness to know about people in different parts of the world and their culture makes them keen travelers.
I wish them well and strongly recommend them to other Airbnb members.
Having found Smiley B&B through the internet, I stayed there in December 2012 and was completely happy. In fact I was very grateful to landed there for my three week stay in Delhi. The premises are sparkling clean and the owners are attentive to guests' needs. The location is away from the tourist scene, yet entirely accessible on foot or rickshaw from the Metro Yellow Line. Guests will find themselves in a pleasant residential neighbourhood. The breakfasts are a treat! Mrs. Balwada is a knowledgeable and able cook, having absorbed the food traditions from wherever her husband was stationed during their Army days.There's a kind of congeniality and helpfulness at Smiley B&B never to be found in run-of-the-mill tourist hotels.This place is a gem.
