Personally I wouldn't recommend Karol Bagh (though I know others do). Paharganj is much more in the thick of it and close to amenities. Karol Bagh generally involves having to travel. It's nice to...

I don't think you'll find it too hot. I just got back - and yes, it was hot but not unbearably so. I didn't have A/C in my room so it was always going to be a little more uncomfortable for me!! ...

I don't think you'll have too much trouble finding a bar/restaurant that will have a TV with ESPN or Ten Sports on. Also, most places I stayed where I had a TV in my room had ESPN and Ten on it.
