All our Delhi collections
Be brave and dive right into the cacophony of the senses that is Delhi and you'll find there's even more to this city than the sprawling, chaotic, incoherent, colourful, historic wonder you've been promised. Delhi can be confronting. But hold your nerve and join the current and you'll discover the gems of both old and new Delhi. The best places to stay in Delhi may not be cheap, but they will be luxurious. And service is generally of a high standard.
Old Delhi: for Culture Vultures
Capital of Mughal India, renowned for it's cuisine and where you will find the grand Red Fort.
- Maidens is Delhi's oldest heritage hotel, a tranquil haven amongst shady trees, but within walking distance of Mughal monuments and the shopping of Chandi Chowk.
- Bed & Breakfast G-49 and G-54 are just up the road from each other, both very close to Humayum's tomb and both reasonably priced, and colourfully and stylishly decorated. G-49 has one large family room which sleeps five.
- Fun and homely, B-19 is a guesthouse rather than a hotel, but they serve an excellent breakfast on their terrace, and you can order more meals if you wish. Each room has its own bathroom and private terrace - some with views of Humayum's Tomb.
New Delhi: For the best of Colonial Chic
The capital of Commonwealth India, the highlight here is Lutyens' magnificent Presidential Palace and Mughal Gardens.
- Lutyens Bungalow is built in the Lutyens' old Colonial style, with a large garden, a vegetable patch and a swimming pool. And the crazy noise of the city is drowned out by the birds who flock to the magnificent shady trees in the old gardens. Rooms are simple and comfortable. And kids under 4 stay free.
- The Claridges is another classic, calm address in Lutyen's expansion. Set in three acres in the diplomatic zone, this traditional lap of luxury is great if you're looking for somewhere to relax. As well as all the greenery and generous Indian hospitality, this hotel has a beautifully designed spa.
- The Vivanta by Taj Ambassador is an elegant 1950s building decorated with traditional elegance. The old colonial charms run to huge rooms and balconies, marble floors and teak panelling. You're also close to the peace of Lodi Gardens and the Khan Market.
The Most Luxurious
- The Leela Palace is a grand, palace style hotel in the Diplomatic Enclave, with all the accoutrements of luxury you'd expect from a palace: marble floors and columns, elegant rooms, enormous public spaces and a world class spa.
- The Imperial dates from the days of Gandhi and Mountbattan, but has been modernised in a way which compliments the colonial and Art Deco foundations. Floors are marble, furniture is teak, and there's a fantastic restaurant and spa. There's also a collection of over four thousand artworks and artefacts, some of them highly important. There are also shops, palms and a luxurious pool.
