I stayed in Ben & Prachi's very nice place for over a month during my recent fieldwork in Delhi. The room and the apartment are just as described. The neighborhood is very nice by Indian standard and is relatively centrally located considered that Delhi is rather spread out. There is restricted supply of air-conditioning, filtered water, and good wifi. Ben is very good with giving advice on traveling in other parts of India and his house rules give very good tips of local attractions etc. Overall, Ben & Prachi's place is very good value and is perfect for travelers who have some experience doing independent travel.
The room and the apartment is just as Ben & Prachi describe. It's very clean and serviceable. We have unrestricted access of air-conditioning, filtered drinking water, and hot shower. The neighborhood is very nice with friendly shopkeepers, and it is relatively centrally located considering Delhi is very spread out. Ben is very helpful in giving advice of travel in Delhi and the rest of India. Do bear in mind this is private home with a housekeeper, not a traditional hotel and so there is not an army of people to serve your every need all the time, such as calling a cab or booking a tour. I have spent a little over a month here for fieldwork in Delhi and I think it's the perfect place to stay for those who are used to traveling independently.
My friend and I stayed at Ben & Prachis for ten days, and it's a lovely apartment! All the ameneties you need for a comfortable stay in the great city of Delhi. Brampal is such a treasure - and the highlight of our stay was chatting with him! And, we were lucky enough to have Ben being home as well - I enjoyed chatting with him and listening to his perspective. Nizamuddin East is a nice, tranquil, leafy residential area, with loads of fascinating ruins and tombs scattered around. It's also quite centrally located!
The one drawback I can think of is that it was quite noisy at night - what with the Nizamuddin railway station being close. In India, trains honk when leaving or entering the station, frequently during the night! The very cute stray dogs outside was also quite lively at night. However, we got used to the noise, and all the good things far outnumber the noise. :)
A good choice for staying in Delhi, especially if you're staying for a longer period!
Third stay in Delhi- a home away from home! Enjoyed meeting and chatting with Ben and relaxing before our flight. Brampal was accommodating, friendly and helpful as always. Thank you so much for providing a respite from the hustle and bustle! Truly our best choice in Delhi!
I am back at Ben's place again. Ben isn't here, but his housekeeper Brampol was here to meet me. I arrived three days late because the Kathmandu airport was closed (damaged runway) for three days, so I wasn't able to use the train tickets Ben bought for me three weeks ago. The times I wanted were now overbooked and he went to a great deal of trouble to find me some alternative viable tickets, bought them for me, and sent me the e-tickets over the internet so I could print them out and leave tomorrow. I can't recommend this place enough for great service, a convenient location, spotlessly clean, and immensely friendly host and guests.
Having stayed here for now around a month and a half I can say that the flat is brilliant to stay in. The quality of the accommodation is very high with all the required amenities. Brampal in particular was absolutely brilliant and it was him that made staying at this property so enjoyable. The location of the property is within around a 25 minute walk fro Jangpura station, so not too close but definitely walkable to then connect to the rest of the city. Being next to the large train station is also useful as it meant you could easily get prepaid auto rickshaws and use various ATMs. Overall a really good place to stay in Delhi and I would definitely recommend it!
This was our second stay. Again, we were again completely satisfied. We discovered the Turtle Cafe and Ashoka (shopping) around the corner.

At our place, you are between good hands. We know what a traveler expects and our flat is providing it.
You will not be in a bed and breakfast, hotel or guest house, but you will be our "short or long term flatmate" where you can feel like home.
For an area like ours, our prices are very reasonable because we are not doing profit!
Before, we used to find flat mates via the social network or this or that online group list. They were staying with us for short or long period. Airbnb is simply an alternative way to find the same flat mates, but from all around the world!
We are centrally located in Delhi, in a historical place full of monuments and facilities for the transportation and you can't imagine, how peaceful and safe it is 24 hours a day.
Same thing in our flat in Pune, we are also centrally located, close to Osho.
A Prepaid Auto rickshaw both is few minutes from home, you will never get cheated by them while leaving our place :-) so you start your day with a peace of mind, without bargaining.
We can have conversations together and with our friends of the day, we have time where you can ask us questions, We love to reply to them. We are here to make you enjoy your first or last moment in your Indian Experience.
The calendar of each room is up to date, if you see it is available, it is really available. So you can book with peace of mind, your request will be accepted.
