Drab beige walls, awkward staff, bland food – all the things you won’t have to deal with at the warm and homey On the House B&B homestay in Safdarjung Enclave. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, On the House owner Aradhna Lanba ensures that you will feel relaxed, comfortable, and at home.

Aradhna is no stranger to the inner workings of the hospitality industy. After working as an interior designer for the Taj Hotel group, she used her own unique design flair, and put together and opened On the House in Safdarjung Enclave, where worldly and contemporary décor come mixed with traditional Indian handicrafts. With an Alice and Wonderland feel, On the House is decorated with handcrafted lace dolls and puppets, and Aradhna has even commissioned Warli art {a 400 year old Maharashtrian tribal art form} for her staircase.

At On the House, comfort and attentive service is key. Services include providing each guest with the newspaper, free wi fi, a computer station, full breakfast, and tea/coffee throughout the day. Unlike most other stays with strict check-in/check-out times, On the House has a very convenient 24 hour check in/check out service. And in case you’ve procrastinated, or just suddenly need a place in Delhi to stay, you can make a reservation for 15% off; a super deal, applicable only to reservations made 24 hours before check-in.

Each of the rooms is spacious, bright, and beautifully decorated. In each room, you will find bed linen from the same suppliers as you would in any luxury hotel. Also included in each room are eco-friendly toiletries, cable TV, and a mini-fridge. There is also a lounge, living room, and a lovely terrace to sit in and chill out. Additional services include airport pickup/dropoff, arranging taxi services, as well as arranging spa visits and additional meals.

Relax, unwind, or {with their complimentary wi fi} plan your daily doings. Come to On the House and let Aradhna and her attentive staff treat you like a member of the family.
