We spent 2.5 weeks traveling around in India, staying in everything from a mediocre Mumbai hotel, wonderful Kerala houseboat, 5 star Goa resort, cute Jodhpur guest houses. Of all our stays, Chhoti Haveli was our favorite and most memorable. We'll most certainly be back. In the meantime, we'll refer all of our friends. We flew in and out of Dehli... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Chotti Haveli the main purpose being a base for us to visit the Taj Mahal and to see Delhi.

We arrived on a cold winter's morning and left on another. The warmth of our welcome and the hospitality of the Mainis was absolutely breathtaking. We were looked after like dear family members, and yet professionally. The breakfasts made by Surinder and Thaapa were delicious and exactly what we asked for each day. The children loved the Indian breakfasts, and... More

Chhoti Haveli was like a home away from home in Delhi, with exceptionally comfortable, clean rooms and excellent bathrooms. Surinder was a fantastic and welcoming host, giving us invaluable suggestions and ideas of things to do during our limited time in Delhi. This guesthouse is a quiet little oasis. While it is a little distance from Connaught Place, it is... More

Surinder and Pawan, the owners of this excellent accommodation, made my trip to India a pleasure. From the very beginning of our email correspondence I felt confident about choosing this B&B as my introduction to India. Even though I arrived in Delhi at 1 A.M., there was a courteous driver with an identifying sign to pick me up. Pawan was... More

This guesthouse is very conveniently located for the airport and offers good value. It is spotlessly clean, includes breakfast, the owners are very friendly and helpful.

Chhoti Haveli is only 15-20 minutes away from IGIAirport. Our two short stays were an ideal solution for our transit to and from Kathmandu -- avoiding down-town Delhi and relaxing in comfort before our onward flights. Pick-up and drop-off at airport worked perfectly. Great plusses: the internet connection, the friendly caterer nearby (excellent food at "The Flaming Mustard") -- and... More
