Well, CP is iconic for its perfect blend of colonial legacy in terms of its architecture and its modern day constituents in terms of stores, restaurants and people. Due to its central location, and the heritage value, it is among the world's top 10 most expensive rental places. It is divided into different blocks- A,B,C and so on, with Cafe Coffee Day in each block. There are three circles- inner circle and outer circle ( mostly retail and food outlets, some hotels too), and the middle circle (mainly commercial and financial offices). The closest metro station is Rajiv Chowk. One of my favorite places here are Wenger's (one of the oldest patisserie here), United Coffee House, Social, Starbucks (unique in its style and rustic decor) and Haldiram's. For shopping, Heels and Balujas are the oldest and occasionally, you might get something nice here. At night, it turns into a party hub, with places like Hot Mess and Lords of the Drinks hosting Dj nights.

First time staying with Connaught Delhi, had a very happy experience. Hotel / rooms are super clean and inviting - absolutely love it.

We had very good interaction with staff, they make genuine efforts and go beyond to care for customers. Special thanks goes out to reception staff Preet, F&B staff Akshay and Sombutt for their warm service and personal touch.

We will definitely come back to Connaught Delhi Hotel.

I'm really not sure what the fuss is about Connaught Place. It's home to lots of shops selling overpriced yuppie western brand name goods, and the streets are full of touts trying to con you. If they start telling you about "government tourist centres" or "free maps of Delhi" then it's a giveaway that it's not legitimate. We were persuaded to visit such a place, and instead of a free map we were given a quote for a 3-day guided tour of Delhi for 26,000 rupees! We did not take them up on the offer, of course, but it did waste our precious time.

Really, there is so much more to experience in India than this glorified shopping mall.

Every person that approaches you and starts talking to you at Connaught Place in Delhi (or also north of it, in the backpacker area near New Delhi Station) is a tout. That people are super friendly, they first start talking to you about normal topics, are interested in your country or want to give you helpful information. But in the end they want to bring you to one of the hundred unofficial “tourist information center” around Connaught Place where you can book an overpriced tour and the touts get their commission just that they brought you there. As soon as they mention “free Delhi map” or “tourist information center” in their words, that’s your call, you know what this friendly chat is really all about. Stop the discussion immediately, say politely “thank you, but you are wasting my precious time so that you only can get your commission, bye bye” and go away. They will feel sorry and admit they’re touts and walk away. Every single person that started talking to me around Connaught Place or in the north of it while I was in Delhi for several days, was a tour, there was not a single exception. Even when I went to a restaurant and sat at a table, few minutes later a guy came in and sat in front of me and ordered a small cheap drink and started talking to me. After I finished eating and left, he followed me and turned out to be a tout that only came into that restaurant after her saw me entering, to try to bring me into one of that unofficial “tourist information centers” to get his commission. It is very sad. Don’t get it wrong, Indian people are very lovely people, and also that touts are very lovely, they just want to make a little money, but be careful as they steel your time only to drag you into a shop so that they get their commission. One of that touts admitted to me that there are around 120 people operating around Connaught Place as touts.
Even when I was leaving Delhi from New Delhi Station with a night train and had my ticket bought online already days before, one of the staff at the station checked my ticket, brought me to the ticket counter where they both discussed and then tried to convince me that I cannot go with my “general ticket” and that I had to go to a “tourist information center” and change my ticket for a “tourist ticket” first, to be allowed to use the train. Of course I already knew the magic words “tourist information center” and ignored them even he was walking after me, I could enter the train and go with it with my ticket that I bought online without problems, the ticket collector in the train didn’t say anything about my ticket.

What a terrible place. Hassled by numerous touts saying they just want to help, no they don’t. They just want you to go to their shop or restaurant. Made to feel uncomfortable and got increasingly angry at their forceful intimidation. I don’t intimidate easily so found myself getting quite wound up and angry. Over priced tourist trap. Possibly the worst area I have visited in India. Don’t bother.

To me as a tourist this is the lively, bustling heart of Delhi, It has almost everying to offer in various store, plus many different restaurants. It appears to be relatively clean compared to other parts of the city that we drove through. Generally, prices seem a little higher than elsewhere, but I suppose that reflects their clientelle of more affluent locals, plus the tourists. Yes, it might be cheaper elsewhere, but I think this area is safer and it'll do me. Worth visiting for a memorable Indian experience.

Best place in Delhi for shopping and food. Reminds me of my days in London.

Shop around rhe inner circle nothing much on the outer circle. Loved the food at Haldiram's being vegetarian.

The huge flag in the park is another attraction, rarely we see such a big Indian flag.

Next time when I take a hotel I would take at CP.

The place is made in sort of a roundabout fashion, with multiple inner and outer circles around with shops and eateries are present. The Rajiv Chowk metro can also be accessed from this place. There is also Palika bazar, the underground market, fantastic place for grabbing some items with good bargaining options. The eateries here are various, from Haldiram's to Steak Houses, and are definitely worth trying out.

This area is extremely congested. Difficult to avoid bit do if you can.
That said, if you're going to the New Delhi grand sites, you will go through. Also there are a number of travel agents that are mainly reliable and respectable. There's a shopping centre under the park at the centre of the three ring roads around the area that I have never managed to actually get into.
Look for the amazng oversized national flag in that park. A sight to behold.
It's more fun in Old Delhi or Paharganj and the prices are better.
On that front, if you are going to move on the Rajasthan, postpone purchases till then. Delhi wasn't generally great value though you can get some reasonably priced knock offs around Chandni Chowk that are well made.
Sorry I took no pics of Connaught place this time round.
