“A Welcoming and Friendly Stay!!”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Meditation Palace is located in a quiet neighborhood, yet is close to the metro and has easy access to many parts of the city! It is also very comfortable, clean and well kept. There a mall only a 2 minute walk away where you can find most things you'll need, and a kitchen where you can cook your meals. Most importantly, the host, Abhi, is an amazingly welcoming and friendly person, who is always making sure his guests are comfortable, helping with tips of where to go and how to get there, or with any other issues you may have. When staying here you truly feel like staying among family, and you have the chance to learn from Abhi about many things regarding Indian culture. I definitely recommending for any traveller venturing Delhi!

“DO NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAY HERE!”

Meditation Palace is located in a quiet wealthy suburb 10-15mins away from a metro station with very easy and affordable access to all of Delhi. There is a mall 2 mins away with several excellent options for eating. We had a room with a shared bathroom and kitchen. Our room came with a fan, A/C, satellite TV and a balcony. The guest house occupys the top 2 floors of a delightful family home. The room is on the basic side but it's hard to find better for the price. It's also hard to find a kinder, more genuine and generous man then Abhi the owner/manager. From the moment we stepped through the door he treated us as family and although there's so much to see in Delhi we spent almost all of our time talking to him. Not only does he create the feeling of a home away from home with all of his guests he also works tirelessly to ensure all of your needs are met. He offered to let us use his credit card to book some bus tickets and pay him back in cash and even sent us an email after we left to ensure we got to our next destination successfully.
We had a truly amazing time at Meditation Palace and feel like we've made a friend for life.
DO NOT MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAY HERE!

“Perfect place to come home to after a day in Delhi”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for two nights after we decided we didn't like our original accommodation in Delhi. We just turned up in the morning and from the moment we met Abhi (manager/owner) he was incredibly charming and helpful.

Abhi's family own the house which is about four floors with accommodation on the top two floors. The family live downstairs and were all very friendly and welcoming whenever we saw them.

The area is really nice and about ten to fifteen mins to the metro station which is very easy to use. My personal recommendation would be to stay in a residential suburb of Delhi near a metro station rather than in the centre but that is personal choice.

Accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. We had a room with a shared bathroom but were only sharing with two other people. Lots of hot water and good shower pressure. There is communal kitchen and some areas to sit in the foyer as well as a couple of balconies. There is also a water filter for filing up bottles which is really helpful.

Basically it is Abhi's warmth and generosity and genuineness that makes this place so special. He has travelled extensively himself so is very sympathetic to backpackers. He and his sister are able to recommend the best places to see in Delhi and Abhi was really generous with his time. We spent a whole evening chatting and laughing with him and another guest. For us it was the perfect element of a hostel but without being a hostel! One day we came back having had a bit of a stressful afternoon getting stuck by a protest in town and as soon as we spoke to Abhi about it he made us laugh and feel better.

Don't dismiss the local mall - we went for food there a few times and was always delicious.. Try the bittoo tikka at BTW. We went on a Sunday night and it was filled with Indian families.

Overall would thoroughly recommend a stay here if you are looking for a more personal stay than one of the many hotels near the Delhi train station. I know this sounds like a gushy review but we were very grateful to meet someone like Abhi and really felt in safe hands.

Update: we ended up coming back through Delhi at the end of our trip and stayed here a second time but in the ensuite room on 3rd floor. Room was v spacious and nice with a very clean big bathroom.

“Very Nice and Clean self catering accomodation”
Reviewed 22 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We as a big family group stayed in Meditation Palace for a period of 4 weeks and found it very nice, clean and suitable place in Delhi. The owner Abishek and his family are very helpful and tries to make your stay as much comfortable as possible. He will help you in all matters and provide you guidance if you require. The place is in a calm residential area and close to a small shopping mall that can be useful. It is very close to Apollo Hospital and Metro station which is the best and cheapest transport in Delhi.
They have daily cleaning service, but bed sheets are changed every 3 days and you must remind them for this. No toiletries are provided and you will have share kitchen and hall. For families who need four room it is very convenient as they can rent out the entire one floor and have all area for themselves. 8 rented rooms are in two top floors and guests have access to elevator. The owner lives in ground floor with his family and there is guard at the gate all day long.

Rooms are big and each one has their own terrace. TV-Cable with access to hundreds channels are available in each room.

Looking some other places in Delhi, I found this one to be the best for value and recommend it to those who want to have self-catering accommodation.
