Any hotel recommendations for New Delhi, East of Kailash or nearby? We will be in town from May 12th through the 26th. Internet access is a requirement.

Not fussy about a brand...looking to spend less than $150 a night.

you will not get a brand hotel in that area for under $150 a night....for non-branded properties the 2 that come to mind are the vikram hotel at moolchand & shervani at nehru place....both are about a 5 minute drive from kailash colony....

http://www.hotelvikram.com/

http://www.shervanihotels.com/index.php

both places are very decent & should be under $150 a night....vikram is owned by a client of mine so i know for a fact that they have done a lot of renovation to the property recently....shervani is owned by a distant relative of mine & its a new hotel so i've seen the property inside out & its very well done....

they are both near metro stations & have a bunch of restaurants & shops within walking distance....

Too late but Bed and Breakfasts are great value and many ate quite nice by western standards.

Thanks for the input and suggestions. We used a mix of points & inexpensive hotels for our 8 nights in Delhi.

We ended up using Hilton Points to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn in Saket/DLF Place New Delhi for most of our stay. We had daily visits in Kailash Colony and the Hilton Garden Inn allowed us to be there within 15-30 minutes depending on the time of day.

The hotel itself is beautiful by American standards. Definitely nicer than any other Hilton Garden Inn, and I'd say it's more inline with a full-service Hilton with the exception that it's a smaller hotel in terms of rooms. A fantastic, complementary breakfast buffet was offered to us as Hilton Gold Elites. The hotel is inter-connected to 3 upscale malls which made shopping and dining very easy. I would recommend not eating in the expensive hotel restaurant, and walking 5 minutes over to the shopping malls where you have many nice dining options for considerably less than the hotel.

Two other properties that we stayed at were:

Indian Luxury Homes (Greater Kailash - M Block) - 3500 INR per night B&B. Clean room, but very simple breakfast (tea, toast, and omelette). Food is brought to your room. Not a good value compared to other options. 2-star property.

Clarks Inn Hotel (Kailash Colony) - just a 5-minute walk to the metro to take you anywhere in Delhi. Modern rooms, but uncomfortable beds (you could feel the coils). Breakfast was good (not great) and is served in a small restaurant, buffet-style. Restaurant is also open for lunch and dinner, but I'd recommend exploring outside the hotel.

PM me if any questions, and I'd be glad to give you my input on where to stay and how to do it using points.
