Sunil and his wife were incredibly kind. Sunil woke up very early on several occasions in order to arrange transportation for us, and very late at night on our last day he secured a ride for us to Agra when our other plans fell through which really saved us from missing seeing the taj majal on our short trip to delhi. However, I must say that the accommodations and the location were not what I expected them to be considering the price and the photos.
Sunil and his wife were excellent hosts: friendly and caring. Sunil helped us to reach his place easily, and guided us to move around in Delhi.
My fiancée and I had a great time with Sunil, Roli and their two sons (not to forget their pet dog, Butch!) Helpful and gracious hosts which was comforting during our first few days in India. Roli's cooking was delicious and we had fun playing cards and in particular felt honoured to be shown their wedding album. On our first evening, Sunil and Roli took us to the temple close by which was great as we learnt much about the various Hindu gods and got to take see how others pay their respects. We felt very safe and secure in the Lall's home and while the neighbourhood is large and at times noisy, the house is positioned in a quiet spot. One thing to note is that this place is quite far from Delhi'a centre (Connaught Place, India Gate etc) but it is easy enough to catch the metro from the station a short walk away. Alternatively you could taxi. This was a great insight into what home life is like for an Indian family. Thank you so much for opening your home to us and for your hospitality.
My friend and I had a great time. The whole family was a total delight. They shared a lot of their time and insights about India. Their home cooked meals were amazing. They were super
helpful and laid back. Their family all had really interesting backgrounds and made for great conversation. Highly recommended !!
We had a great stay in Sunil's. Delhi was our last stop before flying home and Sunil helped our last day go smoothly and arranged our taxi to the airport and was very helpful with other arrangements. The room and house are beautiful and in a great location for the airport and metro. Definitely recommend.
We had a great couple of days staying with Sunil and Roli. The room is spacious and comfortable, the bathroom clean, the wifi functional, and Roli's cooking fantastic. The area is slightly calmer than New/Old Delhi but everything is still accessible. Sunil gave us advice about Delhi and helped us book taxis.
