If you are planning to use the metro, rickshaw or tuk tuk as transportation, is staying at a hotel in Old Delhi still a bad area to be in? Is it hard to walk to the metro if you are in this area? Are there too many people that get in your way or is it the motor traffic? I can see that it looks dirty and crowded. I don't care about that so much. It also looks to have allot of character and culture. It looks to be close to many cultural attractions.There is even a cultural heritage walk offered.
Most T A volunteer advisors say stay away from this area, but then I read from many tourists, that they really liked the location. Is it way to touristy... is that part of it?
If it is hard to maneuver your way to get to the metro from the hotels that are in Old Delhi, then I think I understand the advice to stay away. I am trying to get a clear picture and apply this to what my priorities are.
Thanks for advice, it really helps in making a choice.
