Delhi Hotels

I am arriving in Delhi 18 Jan and I would like to find a nice budget place to stay. I would like something that doesn't necessarily cater to tourists but clean and safe.

1. Re: Delhi Hotels

There are many budget hotels in Delhi, I'm not sure what sort of price range you are looking for, though. Here's a list of some hotels. We are having a busy tourist season this year, so already many will be sold out. I would advice you to book fast.

1) Ajanta

http://www.hotelajanta.com/tariff.htm

Rates from $ 45 to $ 80

2) Hotel Alka (in Connaught Place)

www.hotelalka.com/facilities/index.html

3) YMCA Tourist Hostel

4) Metro Heights, in Karol Bagh

http://www.hotelmetroheights.com/tariff.html

5, 6, 7, 8) Star Palace (Paharganj) and three other Star hotels

Rs. 750/- per night

9, 10, 11) Sunstar group of 3 hotels

12) Palace Heights at Connaught Place

13) Jukaso Inn at Connaught Place

The rest of these are dead cheap ones, so don't expect them to be anything very good:

14) Ringo Guest House - backpacker heaven, on Janpath

15) Rak International - don't expect much

16) Anupam Hoteliers runs three guest houses, they are all in Paharganj - don't expect much.

Rs. 600 for family room.

17) Major's Den, Paharganj, see Lonely Planet listing

Are any of the hotels you listed not in highly tourist areas. Maybe something with some old India charm. Thanks for the response.

Nope. I don't know any budget hotels with "charm" of any sort :) They tend to be middle-of-the-road grungy plasticky places.

Do you know of any hotels that have a lot of charm--not the polished chrome of the new continental hotels?

I don't think Deepa has to repeat herself here. Trust me my fellow American... The Indian budget hotels have all the charm of an older inner city Motel 6 without the crime and drugs and violence.

They may have charm, but not the way you are thinking. The charm is in the price.

I have some detailed reviews of some budget hotels I stayed at during my last trip. Trust me and Deepa, as there is no real charm to be found.

The closest you will get is maybe a guest house or a room in someones house.
