Overview: It is a quiet land or peace and security to rest and recharge the battery and in the same time, we are central near to the touristic spot!
Getting around: Hundred of Autorickshaw and taxis are waiting for you 4 minutes walk. And the best is that you will be a fair price since it is regulated by Delhi police. They have a counter where you prepaid your journey!
The metro does not go everywhere and during the rush hours, it is simply a hell where getting in and out might look like a American soccer show.
Ben & Prachi, are a very nice couple. Ben was there to greet us and to give instructions to the cab driver on the phone on our trip from the Airport. the room was quite large and comfortable with ensuite shower & toilet. the lounge and kitchen were available for guest use.
Ben was very helpful with our ipad in setting up a useable email
programme. which we had sorely missed. Brample the breakfast cook was a very pleasant man and very obliging. We can recommend this property to the budget traveller.
Ben was up waiting to greet us in the early hours of the morning and made us feel safe and welcome on our first visit to Delhi. The next morning we bombarded him with many questions, all of which he was able to help us with, from booking onward train tickets, ordering a delicious takeaway after an exhausting days sightseeing to downloading a very impressive taxi booking app (Über). It was interesting chatting with him to gain an insight from a European perspective into life in Delhi. Location brilliant for onward train journey to Agra as railway station within minutes walk. Thank you.
Despite a bit of a mix-up in communication and no taxi to meet us at the airport, Ben and Prachi were great in responding and providing solutions. They were quick to respond and very easy to deal with, always making sure we were well cared for. Their housekeeper, Brampal is a gem, who went above and beyond to make our time in Delhi a most memorable one.
Ben & Prachi's flat is comfortable, clean and located in a great part of Delhi and we really enjoyed meeting some of the other guests who were there at the same time. I would happily recommend Ben & Prachi's place to anyone thinking of visiting Delhi.
Our first taste of India & it was lovely to spend at Bens place. Whilst he is obviously a busy man, Ben made sure we were taken care of & speaks great English so arranging anything from trains to food is easy peasy!!
The house is also in a quaint neighbourhood with a lovely authentic / cheap restaurant nearby. The room is clean & hot water good.
Best of all you can share a joke & laugh with Ben and his assistant Brampal was a delight.
Thanks from Aaron & Kaia
I stayed in Ben and Prachis apartment on my first night in Delhi and it was such a good way to start off in India. They live in a very peaceful area in Delhi and the apartment is very homy, clean and cosy with beautiful balconies. Ben was really helpful and I would always recommend people to stay at his place.
Foi extraordinário tem ficado em casa do Ben!
A casa é super confortável e limpa, os quartos todos têm casas banho privativa e a água quente funciona mesmo.
A casa tem elevador, o que foi uma grande ajuda no momento em que foi necessário carregar 90kg de bagagem.
O pequeno almoço é optimo e o empregado Sr. Brampal é muito prestável e simpático.
O Ben, é um optimo anfitrião, simpático, delicado, generoso e sempre pronto a ajudar.
Fez com que a nossa estadia fosse inolvidável.
Ajudou-nos inúmeras vezes, sempre de sorriso na boca, tanto a tratar de taxis a altas horas da noite, como a dar informações sobre tudo.
O Ben tem optímos contactos:
se precisarem de um motorista de rickshaw, peçam ao Ben o contacto do Babu.
claro que voltarei!
Our stay with Ben was our starting point on a 1 month journey across India and it was a great place to start.
As others have said, Ben is obviously a busy man but still a great host; always available for advice and conversation, and makes sure you have everything you need.
His place is in a residential area so you can take a walk and not be bothered by anyone which, in India, makes a nice change.
Shower worked a treat. Nice little heater in the room. Brampal, his housekeeper, is such a lovely man too.
Thanks for everything Ben!
Staying at Ben and Prachi's place was for us very nice. He was helpfull and kind and we also had a cooking class with his kind housekeeper, we made dal and roti :) the appartment has good location and is quiet and a nice area.
I already reviewed Ben and Prach I but I do it again because they are just great and loving people. Warm welcome and very nice place. They are like angels in peoples's life. Their home is like an ashram actually where it's soothing to stay. Go there and enjoy it !
Ben and Prachi were great hosts, highly recommended for a first stay in Delhi. They were able to answer any questions we had, made good recommendations, were very flexible with us. They are very conveniently located a very short walk from Nizamuddin train station. They were well stocked with travel guides in many languages as well as drinking water.
