Courtesy and respect given , will earn you the same.

I liked staying with the Abrols so much I went back again! Thanks for a wonderful stay.
I cannot say enough good things about Atul, Marina, and their wonderful family.
As a solo female traveler coming to India for a med school elective, I was so grateful to be welcomed into the Abrol household. They were so kind to me during my stay.
Their home is in south Delhi, a 5 minute walk from the Sarita Vihar metro stop and very close to a taxi/autorickshaw stand for easy transport. They live in a 3-floor apartment in a lovely enclave away from the crazy traffic; grandparents are on floor 1, Marina, Atul, and their kids are on floor 2, and there are 3 guest rooms on floor 3. It was nice to have quiet and privacy when I was jetlagged or needed to work, but there was always somebody around for a cup of tea downstairs if I wanted some company.
Wifi and hot water for a bucket shower are very reliable. Guests are welcome to fill up water bottles of filtered water from the kitchen. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have desks, although bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper -- Delhi traffic is no joke and can be noisy. They also allowed me to store luggage in their home while I was traveling outside of Delhi. I always felt safe.
Atul is an amazing resource for travelers: he helped me get a mobile phone, he helped me get train tickets and taxis, he took me and a friend on a tour of Old Delhi (which was worth every penny -- this man definitely knows his street food!). Marina is an amazing cook and will feed you so much delicious food for 900 rupees per day as a base, although they were generous and flexible about meals when I wasn't totally sure of my schedule.
Here is the best part: they invited me to a wedding my very first weekend in India. I don't think they can guarantee the same for every guest, but it goes to show how hospitable and warm the Abrol family is. (Also, the wedding was incredible......)
I had a wonderful time at Atul and Marina's abode. I stayed for three nights, and even though I had a pretty hectic schedule of attending meetings and a conference in Delhi, they were incredibly welcoming to me - they fed me and included me in their family dinner (where we had wonderful conversations), spoke Hindi with me (!), and oriented me to the house and metro connections. From when we first met until I left, it seemed like we were laughing and joking the whole time, and even when my day was packed full, they still managed to welcome me each day and make sure I was doing well.
Before I came to their place, I'd been suffering from insomnia (largely due to spending nights in so many different, unknown places). But, from the first night of staying there, I started sleeping soundly and through the whole night. Their accommodations were very comfortable and completely, completely safe.
I had everything I needed when I stayed here plus more - safety, a comfortable bed, a close metro connection, heat, water (which heated very quickly), wifi, affordability, flexibility as to my coming-going hours, clear and open communication channels with the host, AND incredibly good-natured and warm people (a beautiful family) who were all Delhi experts.
Also, I met some very interesting fellow residents/lodgers there as well!
The Abrol family are absolutely lovely. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and to help you make the most out of your stay in India. I was in Delhi for my work and wanted a friendly, comfortable and restful place to return to each night. I always looked forward to coming home for Marina's amazing meals, the interesting dinner conversations and to hear what the kids got up to at school! The rooms are well kept, clean, with everything you need. Their home is also really convenient to the metro station and in a nice colony with nearby markets and parks. A really pleasant place to stay. Highly recommended!
Atul and his wife Marina are wonderful hosts and their home is truly a delight. They accommodated me with everything I needed for my stay in Delhi while also making me feel perfectly at home. Their neighborhood has several markets that supply all the basics one might need and has many parks that are nice to explore. The closest metro stop, Sarita Vihar, is a little over a five minute walk from their home and gets you quickly into the center of Delhi. The rooms are neat and clean. They are set above the main floor of the house so one gets all the privacy of a b&b.
The Abrols have been doing this long enough and have had enough guests to share many different perspectives on travelling in Delhi and India. They have a keen sense of how to take care of the people staying with them. With lively dinner conversations and delicious cooking, the Abrols make their part of Delhi feel like a second home. Would absolutely stay with them again.
We stayed with Atul family at the end if our trip, all family members were very nice and welcoming. Atul knows a lot about the country and the culture we had very nice conversations. I strongly recommend Atul place he can provide good advice and guidance for your trip. Room was clean and food was very good.
J’ai passé 40 jours chez Atul & Marina et je ne peux que vous les recommander chaudement! Atul & Marina sont accueillants, disponibles et chaleureux. Je me suis sentie à l’aise chez eux dès le premier jour, et je suis repartie avec le sentiment de quitter ma famille. New Delhi n’est pas une ville facile à apprivoiser, et être hébergé dans un endroit où l’on se sent bien et en sécurité n’a pas de prix. Je dois ajouter que Marina est une cuisinière fantastique : la nourriture est absolument délicieuse, un régal pour les papilles! Je ne peux imaginer être hébergée ailleurs à Delhi!
