  • Thanks a lot to Sunil and his family for the great hospitality!
    As it was the very first time in India for me Sunil could help me and my friend in many details. He took care about us in giving direction in new Delhi and advice where to go, what to do, he had consulted with a doctor when we need help. His wife Roli prepared for us delicious breakfasts. We felt ourselves very well in their home mostly due to harmony atmosphere there.
    Bedroom was clean, cosy. The location is about 15-20 min from metro station, that gave us an opportunity to learn something about just an everyday life in Delhi.
    We have a small talk with Sunil and Roli. It was pleasent to learn some about their life.
    All in all we felt ourselves like we are their daughters - great generosity!
    Perfect for just arrived tourists

    Response from Sunil:

    Thank you for the nice review and the beautiful gift and card. You enjoyed your stay with us is most important for us. Lets keep in touch.

    Sunil & Roli

  • We had a good stay here with delicious food cooked by Roli. Sunil was friendly and it was nice to have access to filtered water. Main downside was that it was a bit of a walk (~20 min on a busy street) to get to the metro and then 30 min to get into the city so not ideal for short sightseeing visits.

    March 2014
  • Close to the airport, the metro is at walking distance. Within 30 minutes you are in city centre. Mr Sunil is very helpful and at the same time he is respecting your own wishes. Amazing how he assisted us with the train tickets and other bookings. If you want real tasty Indian food, Mrs Roly cooks the stars from heaven.

  • My husband and I had an excellent stay with Sunil and his family. They were very welcoming and helpful during our trip, giving us lots of advice about Delhi and a wonderful insight into the local culture and lifestyle. They were even so generous as to go out of their way to take us to the market and help us pick out traditional attire for a wedding we were attending and made sure we had everything taken care of on time. They also helped us arrange a driver from the airport and for a day trip to Agra. We highly recommend staying with the Lall family during your stay in Delhi. Their home is large, clean and comfortable. They have a lovely garden (which we tasted some of the fruit from) and a sweet dog. The breakfast and chai were great as well.

    Response from Sunil:

    Thanks Susan for the wonderful review, I hope you had a great time at the wedding and enjoyed wearing the traditional dress which we, Roli & I liked a lot. I look forward to your second coming

    Sunil & Roli

  • I had less than 2 days in New Delhi before I moved on with my 2-week trip in India and had very little knowledge of the country. However, staying with Sunil really helped me get my bearings together! He took me to the essential first places the morning after I landed such as currency exchangers and travel agents to get my rupees and train tickets booked. Sunil's family was also very friendly and cared a great deal about my comfort. The room was nice and clean. It is great for one or two people to be in with a private bathroom. The photographs might have been taken during a brighter day but still quite clean overall so I had no complaints. I had a great experience there and it isn't too far from the metro station either so I managed to fit in a few sights before I left Delhi. I look forward to seeing Sunil and his family again before I leave India!

  • Sunil and his wife are very friendly and hospitable. we could even check in at 5 am as we arrived very early in Delhi. The descriptions to find the place were perfect.Sunil took a lot of time to take care of us and provided us with information about Delhi and helped us to arange our onward travels.
    He was so kind to serve special food when I told aboud my allergies.
    The house is big and clean, altough our room could have been cleaner according to middle European standards.
    Overall we enjoyed our stay and conversations and hope to meet again some day.

  • Sunil was very helpful before we arrived, and throughout our stay. Receiving a package for me, and informing us about a closer and better train station to get off. He also picked us up really early in the morning. Throughout the stay we were also fed with very tasty food, and fruits from the garden. Their house is in a relatively good location, clean, and well ventilated.

    The photos in the accomodation presentation make the room look brighter and more spacious than it really is, it is however spacious and bright enough. The bed is probably the hardest we had in India (and they have very hard beds). We were offered more "padding", which we declined. All our clothes smelt strongly of what we assume to be mothballs after one night there.

    All in all though, I would certainly stay with Sunil and his family again.

    Response from Sunil:

    Hi Guttorm, Thanks for the response & suggestions we will surely implement what you have suggested.

  • I arrived to Sunil's place quite ill from something I caught in Varanasi. Sunil and his wife took great care of me - preparing me special food, getting me antibiotics - and I felt better in no time. They were very attentive and supportive. The room is spacious and comfortable, the bathroom clean, and the shower water pressure is divine. Sunil's wife, Roli, is an AMAZING cook. Some of the best food we've had in India. Sunil helped us map out what to do. Everything is easily accessible by the clean and nice metro. We really loved Delhi, it is a cool city. We definitely recommend staying here!

  • My husband and I had an amazing second stay with Sunil and his family. They were just as helpful and pleasant as they were before. I had not found a sari while I was in Varanasi so Mr. and Mrs. Lall met up with us one day to take me to a sari shop that was referred by their friend. It was wonderful to have them with us as I was a novice and Mrs. Lall was an expert. They both shared their knowledge of the value, design, and style of the different saris to guide me in the decision process. It was great having a friend along for this experience. That same evening even after arriving home pretty late Mrs. Lall prepared a magnificent meal for us. We joined the family for dinner and had a true experience with our new Indian family friends. We hope to go back to India soon and stay with the Lalls again!
