Meera Dass, a school teacher in India and abroad, decided to take early retirement, open her home, and run a Bed & Breakfast home-stay. Saubhag Bed & Breakfast is the result. It is centrally located - 15 minutes away from the New Delhi Railway Station, 25 minutes away from the domestic airport and 35 minutes away from the international airport. Trees surround the home and you can hear the birds and squirrels as you sip your morning cup of tea.
There are three well-appointed and air-conditioned rooms with attached bathrooms. The sitting area has television and music and guests are free to use the refrigerator in the kitchen. The whole idea is to feel comfortable and at home.
The Dass family live downstairs. Every guest receives personalised attention, yet left well alone. Meera is always at hand to talk and share. She personally sees to the authentic Indian cuisine the home provides. Breakfast offers a choice of Western or Indian fare. The Dass family has lived in Singapore, Indonesia and Romania for several years and knows what it is like to have home comforts when travelling. They look forward to meeting people from across the globe and making new friends.
