“Best place ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

I've spent one month at Lifetree, while working in Delhi, and I absolutely loved it.

The building is nice, the rooms are huge and clean, and all have an attached bathroom (hot water, shower, western-style toilet). Without being exceptionally fancy, Lifetree feels like home (it is actually the owners' home!), and it is the perfect place to go back to, after a busy day around the city. Moreover, guests are allowed to use the kitchen and cook their own food.

Mrs. Kanta is an incredibly friendly, nice and helpful lady, and runs the BnB in the most efficient way. She's always there for her guests, and makes sure that everyone feels at home at her place! The other people of the house include her husband, an extremely kind gentleman, and the two Nepali young men who help Kanta keep the place clean, cook and take care of the guests. They make a very nice team, and welcome tourists in the warmest way.

Also the neighborhood, Lajpat Nagar, seemed a very good location to me, as it's lively and busy, without being crowded and annoying - especially for young women travelling alone - as other more touristic areas are. The metro station is at walking distance, and there's a number of restaurants and shops all around.

Will definitely go back to Lifetree, next time I'm in Delhi!

The distance between Lifetree and Lajpat Nagat Central Market (one of the most famous market in Delhi) is approximately 4 minutes walk (or less..) which makes it a very convenient place to stay as you can get almost anything in Central Market. Room is clean, spacious and has wifi connection (important!). Mrs. Kanta is very motherly and very helpful which makes the stay even more pleasant. Breakfast will always be available no matter what time you wake up (cook to order) and the massala tea is delicious! Just like home..

We stayed at Lifetree Tree Bed and Breakfast in Delhi.We arrived in the middle of the night and were greeted by a member of staff who showed us to our room.The rooms are clean but basic,Lifetree is in a central position for visiting Delhi and conveniently located in the Central Market.
They own a travel company so they are able to arrange drivers and taxi service from the airport which is very handy.
I would stay here again if ever I visit Delhi as the room rates are reasonable and Mrs Kanta is most helpful with suggestions for where to visit.
When we got lost one night in Delhi Mrs Kanta and her husband came and picked us up at another hotel.
The staff also cooked us an evening meal one evening which was excellent real home style Indian food and the breakfasts are very good.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter in general

I had a fabulous stay here. Mrs Kanta, her husband and her staff were all lovely and made me feel very welcome and at home. They even invited me to join them in a Punjabi celebration that happened to take place during my visit. They were full of great advice on things to see and do, and very helpful – including hassle-free booking of taxis to the train station after my first stay and to the airport after my second! The place is walking distance from the metro, and close to a market, but nice and quiet at night. As a solo female traveller I felt very safe in the area, and coming back to Lifetree after an exhausting day of exploring Dehli was a real pleasure. The friendly atmosphere was wonderful, and I enjoyed chatting to other travellers over some delicious meals. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and I recommend the place highly.
