From the very beginning , my contact with Ms. Surinder Maini , at Chhoti Haveli , was friendly , professional and extremely helpful . I was told about her B&B by a good friend who passes thru Delhi on a yearly basis, and my experience there at Chhoti surpassed even her rave reviews . This was to be my first visit to India , and I was a bit nervous after hearing so many stories . Surinder put me at ease as soon as we communicated by email .
She arranged for me to be picked-up at the Delhi Airport @ 1AM and brought to the B&B , a quick 15 minute drive at that time of the morning ,where I was welcomed by Mr. Maini , offered a beverage and shown to my comfortable room , one of only three in the B & B. The Maini family lives just down stairs in their apartment .The next morning I was greeted warmly by Surinder , and as I ate my delicious 'Indian style' breakfast ,we chatted about my plans to visit some of the sites in Delhi . She had hired a Car and Driver for me and after breakfast I was on my way , touring the City . I arrived back at the Chhoti in the early evening and Surinder recommended a couple of eateries that were close-by . I walked around the corner and had an excellent meal , just across from the Hospital . The Chhoti is located right across from a nice, small Park , with lots of vegetation and therefore the B & B was a quiet retreat from the busy-ness and noise of Delhi , just a few blocks away .
My room was most comfortable and I had a small balcony and private bath at a very reasonable rate....the Nepali houseman who made a delicious breakfast and kept the place spotless was also very friendly and helpful.
As most flights from Europe arrive very early in the morning , the Chhoti offers it's Guests a great deal, where you only pay for a half night that first night !
In fact , everything about the Chhoti was just perfect ! and having traveled much of the world , I can highly recommend this B & B .
