We stayed 6 nights at this lovely and very conveniently located B&B; 3 nights when we arrived in India and 3 nights when we left in December.
Arriving late in the evening by plane from Kathmandu, we wanted a place that was relatively close to the airport. Happily Ahtushi had arranged for a car and driver to meet us at the airport. Our plane was an hour late but her driver had waited! We received a warm welcome from Ahtushi's elegant mother when we arrived (Ahtushi was still trekking in Nepal but met us on the 3rd day of our stay).
Our room was huge, beautifully decorated, modern, with HD TV, air conditioning, English novels on the bookshelves, and a lovely ensuite bathroom. There was easy access to a terrace with flowering plants, etc. Tea and pastries were offered daily and breakfasts were superb. The family very accommodating in helping us to arrange our next stop on our Rajasthan backpacking trip. Ahtushi was happy to store our 2 big suitcases with our trekking gear and purchases from Nepal. We wanted to travel for 4 weeks by local buses and trains and that would be much easier with small back packs.
From Ahstushi's apartment in the gated community of Vasant Kunj it was easy to take a rickshaw to the Metro station and to reach central Delhi and other tourist spots. ATMs were within walking distance as were some restaurants and a great coffee shop.
We highly recommend this property as an excellent place to stay in
