Suggestions for a decent hotel near US Embassy...

I am travelling with my wife and daughter to Delhi for my Visa stamping and looking for a nice and decent hotel in the Chanakyapuri area.

Can somebody also tell me the distance between Delhi Domestic Airport and the US Embassy ?

Also, what would be the best means of transport in Delhi ?

Dear Swaps,

I dont know if you have already been to Delhi as I just have seen your post of 19 Dec. Just in case ...

The only one nearest to the US Embassy I can think of is the International Youth Hostel.

The address is : 5. Nyaya Marg, Chanakya Puri, New Delhi - 110 021

The E-mail id : yhostel@del2.vsnl.net.in

Website : www.yhaindia.org

You may hire a pre-paid blcak & yellow taxi from the Traffic Police counter inside the domestic airport counter

I'm a flight attendant for a major US airline and we always stay at the ITC Sheraton Maurya which is 8 miles from Ghandi International Airport and within 1-2 miles from the US Embassy. I don't know if this helps you at all since you mentioned the Domestic Airport. This is a 5 star luxury hotel, however, and I don't know what the rates are since the airline pays for it. The best means of transportation most definitely are the taxis. The busses are filthy and overcrowded and I wouldn't trust the autorickshaws. You can hire a taxi for a day, half a day or hourly. Approximate fee for 5-6 hours is around $15.00 no matter how many people are in the taxi. You just have to know exactly where you're going and be very firm with them because they will take you to the shops where they get a kick-back. Good luck and let me know if I can help at all.
