Interaction with Guests
Interaction with Guests: We Ben & Prachi are the hosts in this flat and our friends Sid & Kelly who live at about 130 meters distance from us, we help each other to manage our listings and never let our travelers alone in case of need.
Prachi is a lawyer and practices between Delhi and Pune and Ben organizes cultural activities for French and Indian schools. We both need to travel for our work between Delhi and Pune where we have our second flat. When not traveling we spend the majority of our time at home and are available to interact.
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.
It is a quiet neighborhood with a lot of peace and security to rest and recharge the battery and at the same time, we are central located, close to the touristic spots!
1 minute away, you have: a pharmacy, 4 restaurants (One open 24h), a phone shop to get your sim card, several grocery shops, fruits and vegetable sellers, a clothes shop (Anokhi), a toy shop, a woman saloon, a taxi stand, a dry cleaner...
Mode of commuting is changing with internet. In India no one stops a taxi on the street. It's not New York :)
We order everything online: taxi and autorickaw can come and pick you up. And they will use the meter. (We can help you getting one each time you step out from our home).
You don't like internet? Then you can get one of the hundreds Autorickshaw and taxis waiting for you within a 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 prepay for 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.
However, we will get our Nizamuddin metro station this 2016.
