Pride Plaza Hotel Aerocity, New Delhi – Personality, vibrancy, and charm; much nicer than many larger internationally-known hotels.
Despite the unexciting exterior, this hotel is significantly more likable than most mega properties around Aerocity, a purpose-built suburb of hotels and malls only minutes from the airport. There is plenty of color and class, and the staff is more personable because it’s considerably smaller than neighboring rivals. All rooms are spacious and feature uncommon Indian-style décor and photos, and some also feature barbecues on private porches. Views are limited, but those transiting overnight probably won’t mind. The Pride Plaza is very convenient to the malls and cafés in the center of Aerocity and handy to the metro station for express services to downtown.

Pride Plaza Hotel Aerocity, New Delhi – Local Transport
- Walking: Plenty of facilities within the suburb of Aerocity, which is about 1km by 400m in area. The special zone offers things rarely (if ever) found elsewhere in Delhi: e.g. shady footpaths, minimal traffic, and no hassles.
- Public Transport: The Delhi Metro is quick, reliable, and excellent value. An express service, with only 4 stops, links Aerocity with the New Delhi station, attached to the main railway terminal. The Aerocity metro station is about 600m to the south. Take a short cut through the mall area. 10-minute walk.
- Taxis & Rickshaws: Taxis are white, poorly-signed, and even harder to find in Aerocity than elsewhere in Delhi. Best arranged through the hotel. None will use a meter and all are outrageously overpriced, so many locals use Uber and Ola. Oddly, there are no auto-rickshaws in Aerocity.
