Connaught Place is the historic center of New Delhi. The area has the charm associated with this period. (early 192Os) It is close to many of the historic sights of Delhi, shopping and restaurant areas of central Delhi and of many international head quarters.
All transport means are nearby, including the metro and express metro to airport which is a few meters away.
The building was built at the same time as the renowned Imperial Hotel which is nearby. Although central, the building is in a quiet private (website hidden) is an enclave of peace and charm right in the middle of Central Delhi.
The prices given are for short stays. We are happy to discuss proposals for periods longer that ten days on a case by case basis depending on the length of the period and number of occupants.
The garden flat has just been renovated and we have put it on the website very recently. However we own the building and you can also check the reviews for our top floor terrace flat: two bed terrace flat: central Delhi
I and my bestfriend stayed here for 6 days and we love this place! We will definitely make this our home next time we visit New Delhi. It's clean, secured and the neighborhood is safe. The flat is very spacious and cozy. The location is just perfect for going around Connaught Place and New Delhi. The place have all the essentials such as airconditioning, hot and cold water, refrigerator, microwave, kitchen utensils, iron and board, washing machine and even heater. We could say it had everything that we need including clean sheets and towels. The manager and guards were very helpful as well. Our hosts Alec and Cecile were very attentive to our requests. They definitely made our stay convenient from airport pick up till the last day. Airport pick up is highly suggested for those who are in Delhi the first time especially if you arrive in the evening. It will be a lot easier for you to have a driver who already know your destination. Anyway once you get around Connaught Place and get the hang of it, the flat wont be hard to find. If you plan on going to other destinations such as Agra where Taj Mahal and Red Fort is, we recommend you book a transportation through the building manager who can contact the car rental company. Also as an added information, it is not easy to get a cab around New Delhi so better if you try the rickshaw (something that will count as immersion with the locals) or hire a car ahead especially for going out at night or travelling long distances. For food, there are plenty to choose from around CP circle which is a few blocks away from the flat. You will also find money changer and banks in the area. For souk shopping go to Sarojini Nagar Market or Central Market in Lajpat Nagar. All in all it was an incredible experience for us. It was truly memorable and enjoyable. Hope its the same for everyone. Cheers!
Overall I feel this apartment is good value. The photos are a little brighter than I expected when I arrived, particularly the bedrooms.
The location is on a quiet alley within easy (3-5 minute) walking distance from Connaught Place. Security is there 24 hours just outside your door in a hallway office, so it's quite likely more secure than any hotel room you'll ever stay in.
If you cross the street, cut through an alley next to the Hanuman temple and park hotel you'll arrive at the Jantar Mantar. This is Jaipur's astrological smaller cousin, peaceful and interesting.
The Ugrasen Ki Baoli (ancient stepwell) is within walking distance to the SE of Connaught Place. I highly recommend it as an off the beaten path destination. Carry a map, it's not an obvious location in a quiet residential area.
This was my second trip to India and had stayed at the Maidens Oberoi last time. This time I wanted to experience Delhi from a different perspective and decided to rent a place for a few days. It was quite a different one. The place overall clean, safe and well situated, taking into account the chaotic urban infrastructure in Delhi. Finding the place everytime we went out was an issue, finally decided to use Connaught Hotel as reference and then go from there, this worked out. I am american but was in Delhi with local Delhi friends who speak hindhi, so it was not a language issue when giving directions The place needs some updating and there isn't much privacy in the rooms given that each bedroom has glass patio doors. The WiFi signal is poor and not available all the time. Other than that, it is fine for the money. I would stay again and recommend to anyone. The owners need to give some tlc to the place and it will be great,
Recrutée par l'Ambassade de France à New Delhi, il fallait trouver un logement agréable pour une famille de 4, pour quelques semaines, le temps de trouver un logement définitif. Chez Alec et Cécile, ce fut parfait. L'appartement est en plein centre et très pratique pour se repérer, faire des premiers achats et aller au restau la semaine ou le week-end. Contrairement à ce qu'on pourrait penser, le lieu est très calme, il y a un petit jardin devant, les perruches et les écureuils ne se gênaient pas pour nous rendre visite. L'appartement est confortable et équipé pour quelques temps de vie quotidienne. Il y a même des bureaux, ce qui permettait aux enfants de faire leurs devoirs ! Nous y étions en fin de mousson, la chaleur était encore assez accablante, mais le lieu est frais et bien équipé en air conditionné. L'équipe qui nous a reçu était très accueillante : des gardes sont présents jour et nuit, le ménage est fait tous les jours si on le demande...et le lave linge est vraiment bienvenue. Bref, pour nous c'était exactement ce qu'il nous fallait.
Avec ma famille (2 adultes, 2 enfants), nous avons passé 2 fois 3 nuits dans l'appartement de Cécile et Alec lors de nos passages à Delhi au cours de notre périple en Inde. C'est agréable de se retrouver un peu comme chez soi pour faire la lessive, griller ses toasts, et préparer ses oeufs sur le plat ! Tout cela à quelques pas de Connaught Place. L'appartement est agréable pour y séjourner plus longtemps et le vert sur les murs très accueillants. Cécile a été très disponible et réactive à distance pour que tout se passe très bien. Les gardiens et Rajni, qui s'occupe de tout sur place, ont également été aux petits soins.
Cecile and Alec have been very good hosts and their lovely apartment in central Delhi worked very well for as a base for my granddaughter's first visit to India and as a refuge base for my wife while I was busy with some work in the south. This being India and this being a private residence rather than a hotel there were the inevitable glitches but they were well handled and I would recommend this flat for anyone looking for as they describe it a place with a "European" feel right in the very centre of Delhi.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
