Safe for Single Women. Children Welcome. Unique Haveli Architecture. Free Hi-Speed Wifi.
We, the hosts, Sheikh Pervez Hameed (Pervez) and Lubna (plus 2 dogs 😀)invite you for an authentic Indian experience in our modern facilities home, a bed and breakfast in Delhi. We are located in a posh South Delhi residential area (an exclusive gated and green community) – Friends Colony East. Our location is useful to easily access nearly all parts of Delhi NCR within 30 minutes of driving distance, including Old Delhi. Gurgaon (Gurugram) is about 45 minutes drive. Whatever be your purpose – tourism, education, business, cultural, medical, spiritual, food, theatre, music and dance shows – this location works. Ashram metro station (Pink Line) is a three minutes walk away.
We welcome you to India, a jazz republic without a written score! Start your experiential tour of India, here, in a safe manner. You will see how quickly you become adept in confidently navigating India. In India, the guest is a representative of God, and this concept is in the DNA of every Indian. You will experience this everywhere, and hopefully, this experience will stay with you for the rest of your life. We officially welcome you aboard the roller coaster that India is. Whoopee!
Delhi, India’s capital, also known as City of the Sufis, can be intimidating, chaotic and a madhouse to the first-timer (Your senses will get maxed out with all sensory assault) but it is also one of the world’s most fascinating places. The size of Delhi alone can put you at your wit’s end. Delhi captures India’s psychedelic show very well. It can confound you with its complexities. However, a stay with us is a shock absorber and can give you a meaningful and positive experience of Delhi and India.
You will get to experience friendly Indian hospitality in our home with a difference and engage in everyday life as Indians do with all the modern creature comforts. Many of our guests have called our home as an oasis in New Delhi. The multitude of green plants spread all over in our home helps a lot, we assume. 😀
You stay in a spacious private residence with multiple sun-kissed terraces, not a modern mass-produced apartment. You stay with us as an honoured guest, become a part of our family for a short or long duration, in a differently built 3 floors house (1973) of traditional Indian courtyard style. Two generations live together (our sons). Our guests keep returning, as they genuinely feel this is their home away from home. Our neighbourhood is safe to freely walk around and there are a few parks for you to chill out.
A stay here is more personal, more caring and intimate than a simple B&B or a guest house or a hotel. Experience sharing, caring, warmth and a very spiritual environment. Wherever possible, we do things together. Maybe a game of chess with Sheikh Pervez Hameed or a meditative session or a quick dash to the local market with Lubna. Expect to engage in vigorous conversations.
We can arrange for you to meet interesting people suiting your interests. You may get to meet our neighbours and have memorable discussions with them. Since 2005, guests from all over the world have stayed with us and a few have become life-long friends.
The Rooms at our BnB are well-appointed, tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, air-conditioned, with attached private and exclusive bathrooms with western toilets and hot water (geysers),
entirely made up beds (double or twin), very comfortable mattresses. Hygiene & Cleanliness are priorities. Two types of safe water to drink – one is produced from a RO machine and the other is produced from a distillation machine imported from the UK. You can fill your water bottles. Free Wifi in all the rooms.
