“An authentic 'homestay' experience in residential Safdarjung Enclave. With antiques, family portraits and ornate mirrors adorning the walls. Rooms are light and spacious, decorated in Indian prints with private balconies. A healthy breakfast can be taken on a sunny terrace or breakfast room.”

Hotel Review

Utterly chic guesthouse tucked away in a quiet corner of leafy Sarfdajung. As you walk in to the open plan living room there is a sense of coming home (to the home you wish you owned). Filled with trinkets collected by its French-Indophile owner over the years it is a wonderful blend of East meets West. Spend an afternoon recumbent one of the huge sofas that take up most of the living room and dip into one of the library’s worth of coffee table books. Even better with a pot of masala chai and the best chocolate brownie I’ve had in India. From the walls lined with black and white portraits of erstwhile maharajas to cavernous brass bowls filled with lotus flowers, Scarlette’s interiors have been done with love. Rooms are sleek and minimal in contrast to the cluttered but charming guest areas. Of an excellent size some include their own private balconies and all feature modern bathrooms, stylish slate tiles and Kama products. Room service of chai and light snacks are available but they are also fully equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, televisions, separate sitting areas, hair dryers and other such trappings of a well oiled hospitality machines. There is one family suite that can be booked. Breakfast is served in a light filled conservatory where tables are never without flowers. The usual spread of yoghurt, fruit and eggs served any way you like is improved by small touches like homemade granola, artisan tea and proper coffee make you feel looked after. Afternoon snacks are served and lunch and dinner can be ordered in courtesy of Delhi favourite, Coast Café.
