I stay alone in Safdarjung Enclave which in the Southern part of Delhi, which is 12-15 kms away from the New Delhi International airport or the New Delhi train station.
Let me start by saying my place is very BASIC, what you get are the basic necessities! And hot running water doesnt count as one of them in our country (at least for middle class people like myself) :P
My flat is on the 5th floor and that means lot of sunlight - best during winters. The bedroom can accommodate 2 people, at the most and has an attached bathroom. For summers, the bedroom is equipped with an AC, so no worries. No elevatros available so travel light. There is a kitchen and you are most welcome to use it.
The neighbourhood has got plenty of takeaways and restaurants. The Green park market, walking distance is a pretty big market and you'll get everything you need. Delhi is connected really well by the underground/overground metro train ((website hidden)). The nearest station from my place would be the Green park metro station, a mere 15 mins walk. You can access all major tourist attractions using the hop-on hop-off bus service ((website hidden))
Have a look at the pictures and let me know if you like it.
Cheers and travel safe
