Hi

Having answered a few queries on this recently may I suggest either somewhere in Central or South Delhi but not Paharganj or Karol Bagh unless you enjoy very crowded and chaotic places. Many people struggle to adjust to these places.

Of course a lot will depend on your budget but you could try these areas - New Rajinder Nagar (Master Paying Guesthouse), Sundar Nagar, the YHA, Chanakyapuri & YMCA, Jai Singh Marg, Central Delhi.

I think South Delhi would be much better in every regard, if you're okay to spend quite a handsome amount, but if you're looking for spending less money then East Delhi is the best. I can help you out in getting accomodation in East Delhi if you would need my help.

What is your budget ? If you tell me how you would answer this question, if one were coming to BsAs, then we would be able to get a sense of "Best Area to Stay"

*Hahahahahha*

Dear guillerminamc,

There is no 'best' place to stay in Delhi, and there are so many subjective factors that should be taken into account to make a meaningful recommendation, that the question is difficult to answer. Obviously budget is one such factor, but just as importantly, what kind of Delhi experience do you wish to have? I don't believe it would be wise to exclude any area until you know enough to be able to match an area's vibe/atmosphere with what you are interested in, and what your needs are. There is a wealth of information available in books and on the internet on the personalities of Delhi's neighborhoods, and it would be well worth the time and effort to do a bit of research, as the areas differ from each other in numerous ways. For example, I would not dismiss Paharganj if I were a backpacker looking to link up with or exchange information with other backpackers, and while Karol Bagh is a world apart from GK II, it is simply too diverse, interesting and too *Indian* to be dismissed as a place not worth going to. In fact, many travelers think Karol Bagh is great because it offers affordable accommodations but is not an area expressly catering to foreigners any more than it does Indians. If you are looking for a more 'modern' or 'developed' atmosphere however, then it would be advisable to check out S. Delhi, but please know that S. Delhi comprises many different hot spots that are not necessarily located close to each other.

It all depends on your preferences, budget, time, etc...but please do check out more sources of info. as you make your decision!

Namaste and happy travels to you!

Two days is nothing, you'll barely get your orientation. Is there something that you are stopping there to do? If so, perhaps you should find an accomodation that is proximal.

Chandni Chowk is best place to explore in Delhi for us, and of course if yor close to the metro that is fantastic for getting around. Any one got any hotels in the Chandni Chowk area worth staying at, Steve

I would say Palermo, near Plaza Serrano. Nice area at night, good transport and close to downtown.

Wherever you stay, check that it is within walking distance of a Metro station. It makes it so much easier to get around Delhi.

While there is nothing which compares to Palermo, the closest that come are the following area - Jor Bag, Vasant Vihar, Khan Market. While Sunder Nagar, Golf Links, and Khan Market areas are similar to Recoleta. GK II and South Extension would be like Belgrano.
