Good mid-range hotels are short on the ground in New Delhi, which is why French owners Alexandre Lieury and Mathieu Chanard decided to open this small boutique property in the Hauz Khas enclave in the south of the city. The Haveli's six rooms are cheerful and homey, each decorated according to a different color scheme and successfully meeting the self-stated aims of intimacy, style, and charm. Despite the hotel's diminutive size, it provides a host of services, including in-room massage, taxi bookings, use of a local cell phone, and a round-the-clock kitchen that serves up substantial breakfasts and dinners. Conveniently situated for the airport, it's a 15-minute walk to the trendy shops and cafés of Hauz Khas village, and a short drive to Delhi's southern sights, such as Qutub Minar. If the Haveli is fully booked, you might want to try Amarya's equally endearing second property, the Amarya Villa in the Safdarjung enclave, just over a mile away.—Vanessa Able
