You are not alone in our flat, in case we are absent, you always have our friendly Brampal, who take care of the flat and you, he speaks English, speaks and laugh with you and never try to cheat you or be nice to have a tip. He is genuine.
It is downgrading his importance considering him just as a staff person, for us, he is a member of our family, we threat him as equal.
In all the cases, we are always available over the phone and emails to reply to your questions, help you with any thing you want, even at midnight.
You can also go and meet Sid and Kelly who are 130 meters from our place if you need anything.

Ben was quite helpful in communicating constantly before my stay and after i checked in at his place. He helped me with the train tickets to Agra and good recommendations on places to visit. The place is in a nice area and close to train station. Would stay there when I return to Delhi.
Outstanding place as always. This is my 4th time here. Ben and Prachi are great hosts, as is Bramphal.
Soggiornare a casa di Ben è stata un'esperienza davvero unica. E' una persona disponibile, pronta ad aiutare e a venirti incontro per rispondere a qualsiasi esigenza (non solo connessa al soggiorno in casa sua). Inoltre è in grado di dare ogni tipo di consiglio utile per muoversi in città (e in India!) e viverla. Pure il suo aiutante, Branpal, è di una gentilezza e disponibilità infinite. Sempre sorridente e solare, mitico! E già queste cose, almeno per noi, sono state di un valore immenso. L'appartamento poi, è situato in una zona ottimale della città. Nizamuddin East è un quartire stupendo, calmo, SICURO e rilassato, ma non lontanto dalle principali mete turistiche. Ad esempio l'Humayun's Tomb può essere raggiunta a piedi! Così come la Nizamuddin Dargah e il pittoresco Nizammudin West. Il resto poi può essere raggiunto con molta semplicità con una bellissima (ed economica) corsa in rickshaw (ce ne sono molti che aspettano presso la stazione, oppure nella strada principale che conduce al quartiere). Il livello di pulizia della casa è ineccepibile, così come il livello di comfort. La stanza è spaziosa e molto carina, con l'annesso bagno dotato sempre di acqua calda. Non esagero se dico che per noi la casa di Ben rappresentava un'isola di pace e tranquillità nell'immensa e pittoresca Delhi....proprio come fosse casa nostra! Grazie Ben! Grazie Branpal! Speriamo di rivederci presto!!!
Always a pleasure to stay with Ben! I visit Delhi frequently and there's no where else I'd stay.
I had to extend my stay, so of course stayed here longer. Apartment is beautiful. Breakfast is delicious. Ben is always very helpful.
