Reach Guesthouse Bed&Chai

Guesthouse delhi

Please read the following information carefully if you have not booked a taxi with Guesthouse Bed&chai:

  • Here is the Google Maps link to find us easier.
  • Check our video to avoid scams at airport. It works also for railway stations!
  • Taxi/tuk-tuk services from the airport and train stations
    • From the airport: 2 options
      • Meru Cabs / EasyCab. Reliable private taxi companies. A bit more expensive. They have a counter outside the airport terminal building. Expect to pay 600-750rs.
      • “Black and yellow taxi” Prepaid service run by Delhi Police. Counter inside and outside of airport building. Between 400 and 500rs. Indicate “GK1” to counter, they will give you a receipt and a counter number from where to get your taxi.
        We do not recommend this service if you do not know Delhi. Several people have complained about getting scammed by prepaid taxi drivers. Your driver might try to trick you to believe that the hotel is closed, the roads to it blocked because of festivals, etc. He will sometimes call the guesthouse where someone on the phone (an accomplice) will tell you that the guesthouse is full. Don’t believe anything. These are tricks to take you to a hotel where they get commissions. Call us if there is any trouble and dial the number yourself.
    • From New Delhi, Old Delhi and Delhi Cant railway stations: Taxi “black and yellow” or tuk-tuk. You can try to get a taxi from prepaid taxi counter, but it is sometimes difficult to have this kind of taxi. Expect to pay between 300 and 400rs for a taxi, 150rs for a tuk-tuk. Tuk-tuks are generally more reliable than taxis.
    • From Nizamuddin railway station: same than the other stations, but we are not far. Around 200rs for a taxi and 70-100rs for a tuk-tuk.
    • From bus stations: look for tuk-tuk. Avoid to pay more than 150rs.
    • You can use metro as well. We are 15 min walking distance from Kailash Colony metro station (purple line). From Kailash Colony take a cycle rickshaw or a tuk-tuk and ask R block GK-1 main road.
    • We are located next to M block market, on top of Max Vets Hospital and Ose Shop, near Allure Hotel. There is no board outside. The following pictures could help you in finding us:
