There is a cross section of cheap hotel services in India, and Delhi is no exception. Come to Delhi without planning your stay and you are bound to feel lost in the midst of the crazy crowd of Delhi hotel services. Therefore, you need to know your options better in order to feel in place.
Let's start with where to find a cheap hotel in Delhi.
* Near the interstate bus terminals
* ISBT at Anand Vihar (on the border with Ghaziabad),
* ISBT at Kashmere Gate (adjacent to Red Fort in Old Delhi) and
* ISBT la Sarai Kale Khan
* Around the stations, that is
* New Delhi Railway Station behind Connaught Place, i.e. Paharganj and Ajmeri Gate areas,
* Old Delhi Railway Station, ie Daryaganj, Kashmere Gate and Red Fort view area,
* Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station.
However, these are the three main railway stations that delegate most of the rail traffic; there are others of lesser importance, one of which is Okhla – a local station on the Delhi-Agra railway route. Okhla is a huge industrial and commercial area in south Delhi.
Cheap hotels in Delhi are also available around the airport and the main roads leading from Delhi and to Gurgaon, ie on the national highway (NH-8) and including areas; JNU, Muneerka, Vasant Vihar, Vasant Kunj and Mahipalpur. It is always advisable to book a visit before entering Delhi – ad-hoc bookings in the busy months (September to December) can be a tiring pursuit.
Cheap Delhi hotels are available in the range; under 500 INR (11 USD), between; INR (500 to 1000) ie (11 to 21) USD, between; INR (1000 to 2000) ie (21 to 43) USD and between: INR (2000 to 3000) ie (43 to 64) USD.
For business or business travel to Delhi, you should opt for cheap hotels in the areas close to work. If it does not exist, then it can raise the budget to the next higher category or it can radically change the selection area, ie from the point of activity or from the place of work. The first timers should consult ITDC approved travel agents. A map of Delhi can be very helpful in such cases.
