If you are looking for 4-5* hotels then Connaught Place is the best area otherwise there are several budget/3* hotels in Paharjang area near the city center or Karol Bagh area has one of the biggest shopping market in India & easy to get metro to any part of the city. I'm sure you will get more helpful posts by D.Experts if you write more details about your plan/holiday.

for budget hotels Karol Bagh is the best place to stay

for very cheap accommodation and to experience the hussle bussle of Delhi you should stay closer to the train station in the area of chandni chowk or Pahar ganj

Hello,

Paharganj is the best place to stay for Budget travelers as it is walking distance to Railway Station, Cannaught place, Main Bazaar and Metro Station.

You can consider south delhi for the stay. For eg you may consider saket, which is well connected with metro stations and close to qutub minar and malls and other sightseeing destinations.

Connaught Place in New Delhi is considered the best place to wander about. However the weather in June will be hot enough to walk around the place.

The sightseeing in Delhi is widespread and covers both the north of the city and the south.

Places in the south - Qutb Complex, Humayun's Tomb, Lotus Temple, Akshardham, Hauz Khas, Khan Market, Nizamuddin Dargah, Airport, Lodhi Gardens, Dilli Haat

Places in the north - India Gate and government buildings nearby (British Delhi), Connaught Place, Red Fort, Jama Masjid & Old Delhi, Nat Museum, NDLS Rail station

For sightseeing, if you have a limited number of days then you can take the Hop On Hop Off bus, if you are on a budget. If not, then hire a car and do the sightseeing at your convenience.

Restaurants and dining are everywhere. Broadly speaking the shopping and dining scene is nicer in south Delhi.

I don't think t really matters where your hotel is as long as it is not far out from the action, like somewhere far east of the city or west. It is more important to select a good place, within your budget, which has good reviews on tripadvisor. There are hotels available for all budgets for all locations. In South Delhi you have a lot of very good B&Bs and boutique stays. Please see this page: tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g304551-New_Delhi_Nat…

Connaught Place is full of scams and I don't like the experience of walking there, too many touts.

Hi,

Well Delhi being a cosmopolitan city so any were you stay Delhi has everything from sightseeing to food to shopping. The top 5 star hotels are mainly in South Delhi. But Delhi has hotels all direction. Some good market places are Connaught Place, Sarojni Nagar, Karol Bagh and Lajpath Nagar. Delhi is well connected with Metro Train so its easy to move around. There are many restaurant and all kind of food you can have in Delhi. But i would like to suggest try to stay in South Delhi because the movement is much more easy .

Happy Travelling....
