When you don’t have the space {or energy} to host guests flying in from various parts of the world, putting them up at a Bed and Breakfast is often the ideal solution, being easier on the pocket than your regular hotel, and often more comfortable too. Devna at 10 Sunder Nagar is one such place. Originally a family property, later converted into a B&B, Devna maintains the comforts of a home, while offering all the facilities expected from your regular hotel. Every room comes furnished with a plasma TV, mini-bar, and dedicated work areas.

Consisting of three mid-sized rooms, Devna is ideal for small groups of people. Complimentary breakfast includes a small buffet featuring basics like toast, cereals, fruit and eggs. If Delhi decides to bless you with pleasant weather, the people at Devna are more than happy to serve the first meal of your day on a mini cart in the garden. Those who want to stay in for lunch and dinner can request for it beforehand at an extra charge.

So if you’re looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Delhi close to all the important sites and markets {Old Fort, CP, Pragati Maidan}, pick up your guests and their luggage and head to Devna for an experience of a hotel and a home, all rolled into one.
