Where to Stay in Delhi?
While finding a decent hotel in Delhi can prove expensive, it is still possible to find cheap hotel deals and good-value hotels in parts of the city.

If you are looking for cheap hotel deals, there is a high concentration of budget accommodation in Paharganj. This area is the backpacker's choice and is within walking distance of New Delhi train.
Delhi Accommodation Options
Room availability in Delhi can be tight. If you want to be sure of securing a room at the city's best hotels, it is advisable to book well in advance during peak season. However, there are usually some good last-minute hotel deals to be found if you are flexible. During less busy periods, cheap hotel rates are relatively easy to come by as hoteliers vie for the tourist dollar.
If you are on a tight budget, there are plenty of backpackers and no-frills guesthouses to choose from, especially in the Paharganj area. Alternatively, consider a homestay with an Indian family. These are usually on a bed and breakfast board basis, and are a great way to learn more about Indian culture.
If you have a little more cash to spend, the city also offers plenty of mid-range and business hotels. Many of these can be found in North and Central Delhi. If money is no object, Delhi offers a world-class selection of deluxe places to stay, from international five-star hotels to boutique hotels and even converted palaces.
