Delhi has a long history of welcoming travelers. Take Ibn Battuta, the famous medieval explorer, for example: upon arriving in the Delhi caliphate, he was swiftly honoured within the royal courts of Muhammad Tughlaq.
The capital of India rolls out the red carpet for its guests and nowhere is that more apparent than at the best hotels in Delhi. The city may have dispensed with the tradition of giving foreigners a honorary title, but you can still expect a royal welcome that includes a rundown of the city’s top restaurants, street food options and shopping scene.
From quirky, family-run guesthouses to lavish palatial estates, Delhi’s accommodations cater to all budgets, tastes and temperaments.
