This was my first time in India. I was looking to stay with a local family that could provide good advice as well as a place that was clean, away from the Delhi centre and with good food/water. Atul and family provided on all these accounts. Thanks!
This is truly an oasis in New Delhi. You will feel very welcome here in this spotlessly clean accomodation. I always stay here when I come to India and enjoy Marinas amazing cooking. Each time there is some subtly spiced dish like you have never had. Very safe neighborhood, the best.
Ich war das zweite Mal in New Delhi, und erstmalig nicht im Hotel. Der Aufenthalt bei Atul und seiner Familie war ausgesprochen angenehm. Ich wurde herzlich empfangen, und Atul und seine Frau Marina nahmen sich viel Zeit, mir bei allen Bedürfnissen zu helfen. Ich habe Atul auch als Guide für Shopping und Sightsseing engagiert. Seine Hilfe war unbezahlbar. Am Ende habe ich nach 5 Tagen Aufenthalt meine Gastgeber neu eingekleidet verlassen und war gut akklimatisiert für die darauf folgende 2-wöchige Gruppenreise. Ich werde das nächste Mal wieder dort wohnen. Ich schreibe diesen Kommentar, während ich noch auf Nord- und Südindien-Rundreise bin. Und ich kann wirklich sagen, nirgendwo habe ich so ausgezeichnetes leckeres echtes indisches und sogar südindisches Essen bekommen, wie in Marina's home. Abwechslungsreich und vielfältig, schon vom Frühstück an. Veg und non-Veg, ganz nach Geschmack, immer auch Salat, und Nachspeise, und der beste Marsala Chai überhaupt. Die Familie ist westlich orientiert, die Kinder sind sehr angenehm. Im unteren Stockwerk wohnen die Großeltern, auch sehr höfliche aufgeschlossene Menschen. Das Zimmer liegt im obersten Stockwerk, separat von der Familie, die im mittleren Stockwerk wohnt. Das Zimmer ist einfach, aber sauber. Mein Zimmer war sehr klein, aber wlan hat gut funktioniert, und es war leiser als nach vorne hin. Die Wohnung liegt in einem guten Wohnbezirk mit vielen Bäumen. Von der Terrasse kann man auf eine größere Straße hinuntersehen und das indische Leben auf sich wirken lassen. Die U-Bahn ist nah und zu Fuß sehr gut zu erreichen und damit auch für alleinreisende Frauen geeignet. Danke für die schöne Zeit! Herzliche Grüße nach New Delhi! Verena
I had the most memorable and wonderful time at Marina's Magic BnB! The place was comfortable and spotless. The metro station is conveniently located 5 minutes away. Most importantly, the host family treated us with the warmest of hospitality. Also, I can respondibly say that Marina's meals are the best ones I have had in India. I would love to stay with the family if and when I visit Delhi again. Lots of love, Atul, Marina and the kids!
I stayed with Atul,his wife Marina and their lovely children for 3 weeks and thanks to their warm welcome I felt straight away at home. It was my first time travelling alone in India and I was a bit nervous about the whole thing before I started of. I was so happy to find myself in the circle of this lovely family were I didn't have to worry about anything.
The food was absolutely delicious, thank you Marina!
I was really well looked after and at the same time had also my privacy. The house was spacious and kept very clean and the fact that the metro station is only 5 min. walk away was a bonus.
Atul was very helpful in booking trips, taxi etc. and in answering any questions about
Delhi, India, it's culture and way of life.
Thanks again Atul and Marina for giving me such a great holiday and I will definitely be back on my next trip to India.
Thank you Barbara for visiting with us . You are a beautiful person and we are, each of us in our own way, enriched for having met you and interacted with you .
How we felt about you when you were here cannot be adequately expressed here...but we ourselves were surprised by it ! God bless you and all who are dear to you .
I have stayed here I think four times now so the Abrols are my friends. I have only good things to say about staying with them. The Location is in a safe secure enclave, short walk to metro. Since I was there last(about 6 months ago) the rooms have been freshly painted, new larger mattress, etc. The place is kept spotlessly clean. Marina cooks gourmet meals for you vegetarian or non vegetarian as you desire and they are amazing! Everything is done with filtered water which is in unlimited supply. Atul is a great source of wisdom concerning survival in Delhi. The children are adorable. Highly recommended.
