The Rose

The Rose is an immaculately put together, pristine small hotel in the heart of New Delhi’s bohemian art and design neighborhood – the Hauz Khas village. It opened last year, and I was immediately drawn to its beautifully put together, minimalistic, light and airy interiors. Owned and run by Frenchman Pio Coffrant, The Rose also runs a cafe, an art gallery and various events on weekends.
Pio also runs another guest house in New Delhi, known as Colaba House. A quirky combination of Indian and French design elements, with odds and ends from various parts of the world, makes Colaba House another great place to stay at in Delhi.
Don’t such lovely hotels make you wish that you were a tourist in your own city? What fun it would be if we got an opportunity to stay in such interesting places and a chance to view our city with a completely fresh perspective!

  1. Hi – love your blog! I stayed in this hotel October this year – it is absolutely gorgeous and the people that run it are so friendly and helpful. So much nicer than the big chain hotels.

  2. Agreed I never would have guessed this was in Delhi…very cool photos!

  3. Lovely images Bhavna. The rooms are minimal, but still so warm and love the Indian feel that they have…

    Lovely, Bhavna. You know, you can be a tourist in your own city. Go on what Singaporeans call a 'staycation' – pretend to be a tourist and spend a day or two in a hotel – good enough to rejuvenate you without leaving the city!! 🙂

  5. Wow…This is so beautiful 🙂

  6. Gorgeous pixs, I would have never guessed it was in Delhi – so airy and fresh
