Brampal's place felt like a home away from home. Everything was perfect - there was even a nice local eating place around the corner. Would definitely recommend to any traveller in Delhi

The apartment is situated in a leafy suburb with great local cafes and a stone's throw from Humayun's Tomb. The hosts were extremely helpful and gave great advice on where to eat in the neighbourhood and nearby sites to visit. I highly recommend this pad, as a central and safe place to base yourself if in Delhi for several days.

Response from Prajakta (Prachi), Ben & Brampal:
Thank you for your review, 5 stars rating and private feedback: "I had a wonderful time staying here. A real gem in service and location. The apartment is gorgeous and has great modern features! Loved it.". PS: Nizamuddin East, Humayun Tomb... are all in New Delhi. We are not in the suburb. Delhi north to south is 70 km long, we are 5 KM from the President house and ministries and the point 0 of the city Connaught Place ;-)

Ben's place is fantastic. The neighbourhood is safe and clean, there is plenty of shops for your essentials and apartment is spotless. Didn't get to meet Ben in person as he was away but Brampal hosted a us fantastically and helped us a lot with getting around and navigating Delhi. In particular we were really thankful for all the help and information before our arrival with train tickets and all sorts. Great hosts, definitely recommend.

Absolutely loved staying at Ben, Prachi and Brampal's place. Hamayan's Tomb is so close that, from some of the rooms, the main dome is visible over the trees. It's nice and quiet in the area so you don't have to worry about getting a good night's sleep. There are some pretty mild issues - you do need to get a short 10 min cab or rickshaw to reach the metro, and most of the gates to the residential area do lock after about 10pm but - for both - you get into the swing of things pretty easily. Ben is very helpful and great at communicating asap (and tolerant of any last minute changes or extension requests I had to make). It's a shame we couldn't hang out more but he had to go away for a few weeks pretty early on in my stay. Brampal is the best! He often went above and beyond the call of duty, is very sociable and helpful, and is a lovely fellow. Hopefully it won't be too long before I next visit Delhi again - and if I do, I will be sure to come again. :)

I was here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Taj Mahal. Bed is super comfortable and Brampal was very friendly and he fixed me breakfast each morning. Loved it. Coffee was astounding! There were numerous traffic and dogs barking at night but it didn't bother me considering that I am from Central London. :) Overall, great stay! Thanks again.

We were really pleased with our room at Ben, Prachi and Brampal's place. Our room was clean with a warm shower and a very comfortable bed, in fact the most comfortable one on our travels around India so far. Brampal was excellent and couldn't be more helpful, he even offered to make us breakfast on the morning we were due to leave. Downsides for us however was the lift was broken on arrival and we even got stuck in there for a short while with Brampal. He did however resolve the problem quickly. We also discovered that taxi drivers even uber drivers struggled to find the address regardless of its close proximity to Hazrat Nizzamuddin station. (Note to other travellers - Uber was important to us as we really struggled to find an ATM with cash across Delhi). Our private Taj Mahal driver also couldn't find us to collect us for our day's trip arriving 40mins late. Obviously taxis are of no control to the host so this is a negative to the location only. Overall we can't fault our hosts however as communication since booking and during our stay was excellent as was the accommodation itself.

Response from Prajakta (Prachi), Ben & Brampal:
Thank you for your review, happy to see that you have experienced the most comfortable place during your stay in India. For the lift, it is like any machine, it can stop working and we have an emergency button inside that will help to have the maintenance people or us come to help you. Which Brampal did without difficulty. The lift is maintained and obviously, you don't risk your lift using it. Our place is not more complicated to find than any other place in India. It is probably even better in our place as we live in a human size area. For your lines about the location, you have used Uber to book your car on your own. As you know, Uber works on a location that you give on your app and the driver follows that location to reaches you. it is unfortunate that you faced an Uber driver who don't know how to use his Uber app and worst, he does not know our area aged more than 700 years. We can't be at fault if your Uber driver was simply incompetent. And as you said, Brampal came early morning to do your breakfast before leaving. Why in this situation, you have not talked to Brampal to give directions to the incompetent driver? This would have avoided you to waste 40 min waiting. Delhi is a 1000 Km² and 20 millions people city, with people freshly landed in Delhi working as drivers, even with Uber, they don't even know how to read a location on a phone map. Again, it is not our fault if people are incompetent in their field. You lacked of communication in this situation with your hosts while we are fully available to help ours hundreds happy travelers.

Brampal was there to let us in and show us around. He is so lovely really welcoming which was reassuring for our first night in India. Ben was ready to help whenever needed, he's either a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or email away. The area is great, right next to the train station which you can get to in a few minutes and there is a direct train to Agra (Taj Mahal) from there. Ben can assist you with ticket purchases, we tried the hard way by getting them at the station. Lets just say that was an experience of its own. That said you can hear the trains from the room but can tune them out. There are a lot of dogs in the area, we didn't have issues until leaving where the dogs got a bit more aggressive but can be avoided easily. The room was very clean just like the photo. Only minor drawback no shower curtain so the water does go everywhere but there is a squeegee to clean up the water. Also uber drivers do tend to get lost trying to get here. We spent 30 minutes this morning trying to get our uber since most of the gates close at night and we had an early flight and each driver kept getting lost. Overall really great stay.

We have traveled to more than 50 countries till now and we understand that coming to India is a wonderful experience that should not be spoiled by dirty or unsafe, not comfortable accommodations. Full of people trying to get each Rupee you have in your pocket. Ben is Frenc…
