Delhi has plenty of choice, but it’s wise to book ahead, as popular places can fill up in a flash. Re-confirm your booking 24 hours before you arrive. Most hotels offer pick-up from the airport with advance notice. Homestays are becoming an attractive alternative to hotels, and there’s also an array of options on airbnb.com. For details of government-approved places contact India Tourism Delhi, or check www.incredibleindianhomes.com and www.mahindrahomestays.com.
