Hi

Has anybody stayed at the Delhi Bed & Breakfast ?

i have the website http://www.delhibedandbreakfast.com/index.htm

I want to know what area it is in... it doesn't really say. Would like some traveller reviews too as i seem to be hitting a dead end due to the name of the place.

It is priced around $40 so buget/mid range

thanks

Not sure what or where this is but i usually use the www.hotelprincepolonia.com it's 10mins walk from New Delhi railway station just off Pahargange & is very clean & quiet they charge RS1100 & airport taxi pickup is around RS400 which i would recommend you take if it's your first time. You can contact them at polinter@vsnl.com Whereabouts in W.Yorks are you,i'm in Leeds. KK

Horsforth,but i have lived all over Leeds. I would strongly recommend you use PrincePolonia,i think it's a fairly gentle introduction to India for first timers & is in the main tourist accomo area. KK

That is a such a protypical Indian encounter.

Anywhere else you might get angry, or feel a little picked on, or quickly take your business elsewhere.

But in India, they really are just having lunch and customer service is often - well - a distant second when the two activities conincide.

You are right that why we sat down for 30 Min. but its only right to point out the good and the bad

My question is not related much to this thread, but I didn't really know where to place this. Anyhow I am going to India for 2weeks in December (probably first half of december considering crazy flight costs). So I am going to meet this nice lady and I would like to do something special like maybe take her out on a chopper ride in New Delhi (something that could be romantic). So I needed some information (tried googling but not much help) on some romantic things to do (like maybe a chopper ride). Not sure where I could get a good resource on something like this.

By chopper do you mean a Motorcycle or a Helicopter ride?

A helicopter would be kinda cool - you could then zip down to Agra and buzz the Taj Mahal - like they did in Octopussy.

I meant a helicopter ride. Something that can be done over the period of one day (or half a day) (I don't feel her parents will be comfortable for anything overnight).

Great idea! So fly around a bit then touchdown somewhere for a picnic and a little bubbly(I mean wine ) .... at one of the old ruins or something ... maybe the Oberoi's farm .... doubt they would notice it's so big!

Here's a link to reviews on Tripadvisor - if this doesnt take you to the B&B/Inns list, click on the menu.

Im leaning heavily to staying here when I visit Delhi next year - if you go hope you post back!

Are you talking about the 1 near Imperial cinema Tony? I find this hard to believe, i've stayed there for the last 2yrs & the place is spotless, also i've never known the reception not to be open KK
