In a pretty area of Delhi, near Civil Lines metro station, there is a beautiful private home with a nice garden, large rooms with really comfortable beds and delicious food. Shalini, her husband and their staff are amazing to make you feel like at home and really helpful for any information about the city. Highly reccomended
We loved our stay at Sham nath villa. Warm welcome even though we arrived late at night. Excellent facilities, breakfast, host and location. Provided us with lots of local sightseeing tips and restaurant recommendations, and we were not disappointed. It felt like a haven away from from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. We highly recommend a stay here! Already planning our return.
We stayed 3 nights at the Sham Nath Villa in February. It's in a great location out of the busyness of Old Delhi, but a couple of minutes' walk to the Civil Lines Metro Station. The room was clean and quiet and quite large. We were in the only room on the ground floor, right off of reception and the kitchen. We were worried about noise but because there is an interior door to that room it was not a problem at all. Breakfasts were wonderful! The best asset is Shalini. She is an amazing hostess, taking the time to interact with her guests and help with any of their needs, including touring, medical issues, travel issues, etc. We would highly recommend the Sham Nath Villa.
Shamnath Villa is not a luxury hotel. Rather, it is a bed-and-breakfast establishment, with the feel of a homestay. But for those wanting something different than a luxury hotel, it is an excellent choice. My room was large, clean, quiet and comfortably furnished. The bathroom was also clean, with modern fittings and good hot water. There was a good heater in my room. Meals are taken with any other guests who are 'eating in', and Mrs. Shamnath was always present at my meals to make sure I had everything I needed. My vegetarian Indian breakfasts and dinners were excellent, with something different each day. Other guests were a mixture of foreigners and middle-class Indians. Many seem to be long-stay guests working on assignments in Delhi. The Villa is well-located, very close to Civil Lines metro station, and set back from busy Shamnath Road. The Villa itself is very quiet, and the garden is a pleasant haven of peace. Mrs Shamnath is an educated, upper-class Indian lady with excellent English and helpful advice, if wanted. I would stay here again.…
I returned to Shamnath Villa after 7 years and was delighted to find it as charming and comfortable as ever. This is all down to Mrs Shalini Shamnath and Mr Arun Shamnath - their efficiency and hospitality, and the competence and kindness of all their staff. The bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable; the common areas gorgeous. The delicious home cooked food is an extra treat every time!
