Haveli Dharampura, Old Delhi, India
Tucked away in Old Delhi, this is the city's most authentic and characterful boutique hideaway
Only available as part of a tailor-made holiday in India created for you by our destination specialists
With scalloped arches, pattern-tiled floors and polished-wood, the haveli (townhouse) evokes tradition and echoes similar grand houses in Rajasthan. Dating back to 1887, and tucked away down a narrow alley in Old Delhi, it’s certainly the city's most authentic boutique hideaway. Stay here for the character and experience rather than because you’re looking for a spa, fitness centre and every five-star comfort.
Each of the 14 rooms has a relaxing ambiance that takes you a million miles away from the bustling streets and vibrant buzz of Delhi. All rooms have pale stone, patterned tiled floors and carved wooden furniture including impressive heavy wood king-sized beds. The six Jharoka standard rooms are fairly small, though with large carved beds. Spending a bit more money brings you much more space in the six Diwan-e-Khas rooms, and the largest are the two Shahjahan suites, with even more scalloped arches. The rooms have great historic atmosphere.
Activities & Experiences
Both Old and New Delhi are brimming with places to explore and our expert private guides can accompany you to enrich your experience. At the hotel, Kathak dancers perform every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, and the haveli makes an extraordinary setting.
Facilities & Services
Old Delhi has a long history of providing for those seeking culinary adventure and the hotel's Lakhori restaurant surpasses all expectations. It's cuisine is inspired by the contemporary fine dining scene just as much as the inviting tastes of Indian street food. Taste Chandni Chowk delicacies and rich Mughlai fare, from the famous papri chaat to the exquisite flavours of local kebabs, Lakhori surpasses all expectations. Meanwhile, the roof terrace offers stellar views of the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Gurudwara Sis Ganj, and Lal Mandir.
Weather & Seasons
The best season to visit is between October and March when the weather is pleasant and cool - ideal for sightseeing.
It's an 8 hour 30 minute flight from London to Delhi, followed by a 40 minute transfer.
