A pleasant homely stay
on Jul 10, 2018
I stayed at Sumitra Inn for almost 45 days. An excellent time. The location is very convenient. It is in a safe locality, which is not so in most places in Delhi. Transport in terms of Rickshaw/ Cab easily available. Accommodation is very good, clean rooms, fresh linen. Room Service option for meals available. Although I preferred the community breakfast and dinner, with the proprietor regaling us with stories from the past. Food is always freshly prepared, and a wholesome home menu. Most suitable for staying for a longer period. The staff is very helpful.

This is good hotel for both business travelers and personal travelers. The hotel is centrally located and one can travel to all places in NCR comfortably. The owner takes personal interest in taking good care of guests. The warmth received here is the USP of this place. My sincere thanks to them for their hospitality.
“Cheap and not cheerful HOSTEL equivalent place”
on May 10, 2017
Good - They try, but are clearly aimed at Indian travellers who have different expectations and standards from a budget accommodation compared to international travellers. The staff is all out to help and do or organise things for you. Good Indian breakfast options
Bad - no truth in advertising - all the pictures on their site are of the interiors of the rooms only and none of the exterior, common areas or reception - and that is for a reason. This place is in a great locality but in an obscure bye-lane. The exterior of the "hotel" (should be called hostel) needs serious uplift as do the interiors. Staff is not trained on keeping the place clean and there is dirt and marks everywhere. Dont get fooled - there is NO reception desk, restaurant, or any facilities. just a common dining table on each floor and a kitchen right at the entrance. The room doors are sliding and once locked, still have a big gap so privacy is not a 100% . the bathroom (including toilet and wash basin) are 5x5 feet so you can reach opposite walls with two hands - no shower cubicle or curtain. Not recommended for people who are regular travellers and have seen a lot of places at similar costs - and definitely not suited for female travellers. If the cheapest place in that area is your key factor, this is the place. I got tricked by the shots of the interiors of the room but the rooms look nowhere as good as the photos :(
Homely accommodation with a personal touch

A well maintained property.One can feel like walking into a HOME instead of a HOTEL.Nice clean rooms , excellent service and personal care from the owner.Moreover I got the chance to interact with other room mates over the dining table.The main advantage is its location as all the important offices in South Delhi can be easily reached from here.
Thank you Mr Chakravarty and the team for the memorable experience.
I am definitely coming back to Sumitra Inn.
Home away from home

All my official trips to Delhi have been made comfortable & enjoyable by Sumitra Inn. Centrally & conveniently located, it offers excellent value for money coupled with nice, clean & luxurious facilities. Homely & delicious food (and also healthy as special attention is given by Mr Chakravarthy - the owner) add to the comfort quotient. The experience at this is location along with the behaviour of staff & owner is "natural & genuine" and that's what makes it so unique, it is a culture hence each time you go your experience gets further enhanced. I have not stayed here with my family but will definitely recommend the same and will surely do it some time in future. My sincere appreciation and best wishes to the entire Sumitra Inn team for their consistent efforts & hospitality.
