Boutique Stays in Delhi
LETS BUNK POSHTEL
A Posh hostel offering a co- working space and cafe ideal for a stylish traveller and creative nomad. Conceived and conceptualised by Gautam Munjal, an ex-hospitality professional, this indie space is a hidden gem in Delhi's Hauz Khas Village. Designed keeping in mind a modern travellers tastes and needs, lets bunk poshtel is a community-driven social travel startup styled minimally keeping local experience and comfort in mind. Gautam comments that it is more than a space to stay for a posh packer who cares about style and functionality. My first impression was Airbnb married Ikea and its woman friendly!
A home stay situated in a central residential locality of New Delhi, makes for a comfortable and convenient stay in the city. Started about a decade ago, Colonel's retreat offers a homelike experience with the facilities of a hotel. Perfect for a family or solo traveller, this artistically styled home is close to all tourists spots as well as major shopping areas. Courteous and well informed staff makes it warm and welcoming. One can expect a freshly made continental and Indian breakfast served on a roof top terrace and enjoy evening tea with freshly made banana bread in the lounge with many books and guides to browse through.
A hipster getaway in Delhi. Lazy Patio is a hidden gem in Hauz Khas village offering a glass room or a hut for rent. Cutely furnished with a little corner of books and guitar, the glass room is perfect for a solo traveller or a couple. Expect eggs , muesli and coffee for a comforting breakfast with a lake side view. In the evening I recommend buying a bottle of merlot with olives and cheese to accompany a picturesque sunset. Guests are woken up by peacocks in the morning, and the balcony invites parrots and squirrels as well. Run by an ex hospitality professional, this is a true mix of home and hospitality. Walk away from cafes, bars, diners, boutiques and spas, Lazy patio is an affordable and practical option too.
