See more hotels on Time Out Chicago Hotel Broadway Built in 1956, Hotel Broadway is a throwback to a time when the split between new and old Delhi wasn't quite as pronounced as it is today.
A few rooms were recently refurbished in what can only be described as a bazaar-kitsch style by Catherine Lévy of Tsé & Tsé Associées of Paris. There are a couple of bona fide Delhi classics on the bottom floors, as well: the Bollywood villain-themed bar, Thugs, is one of the few places in the old city where you can get a drink.
Grub is courtesy of Chor Bizarre, an Indian restaurant with an accent on authentic Kashmiri food.
Ask for a guided tour through the old city, or catch a movie at the beautifully restored art deco Delite cinema next door.
