Chandigarh Hotels

Strolling along Chandigarh’s wide tree-lined boulevards brimming with international restaurants, modern boutiques and flower-filled green spaces, you’d be forgiven for thinking you weren’t in India at all. As the first planned Indian city post-independence, it’s a world away from the honking-horns cows-in-road people-everywhere Indian craziness that visitors love to hate. Designed by Le Corbusier, Chandigarh’s well thought out sectors make it particularly easy to explore its grand modernist buildings, or stroll around its quirky gardens, pretty lakes and interesting monuments.

Things to see

After hustling and bustling through Delhi’s whirlwind streets, or whizzing past blustering cities on a typically long Indian train journey, Chandigarh’s a breath of fresh air. A European style cosmopolitan vibe bounces off the prosperous locals, who happily saunter down the city’s organised hassle-free streets. Head to vast Sukhna Lake to sit on the bank, watching as women natter, families bob off in a pedalo to the other side, and kids splash around at the water’s edge. Once you’ve rested for a while, head to the nearby Rock Garden. Despite its lowly name, this 25 acre place is an incredible fantasy world of grottos, bridges and ethereal sculptures created from all manner of urban junk and recycled materials, all from the mind of a retired local roads inspector called Nek Chand. Slightly further away, the Capitol Complex is home to the best of Le Corbusier’s architecture.

Hotels in Chandigarh

You won’t get as much bang for your buck in Chandigarh’s hotels as you would in other Indian cities, but it’s the perfect place to enjoy some relaxing downtime. Why not treat yourself to a luxury hotel – after a day wandering around the city sights, there’s nothing better than retreating to your 4 or 5-star hotel room, to immerse yourself in a soothing bubble bath. If your budget won’t stretch to such lofty heights, try a mid-range hotel, offering all mod-cons including WiFi and en-suite rooms. Alternatively a family homestay B&B offers comfy authentic accommodation with a lower price tag.

Where to stay

Thanks to Le Corbusier, each of Chandigarh’s sectors is home to its own commercial and residential areas, as well as clusters of green spaces. Barring some of the newer and industrial sectors a bit further out, you’re pretty much guaranteed amenities no matter where you stay. Most visitors head to Sector 17 – the main commercial centre, brimming with large shops and well-known restaurants – or Sector 22 – home to plenty of hotels with a higher price tag. Sectors 8 and 9 are right in the heart of the city’s museums, monuments and modernist buildings, and a stone’s throw from the lake.

How to get to Chandigarh

Plenty of buses arrive at the city’s modern interstate bus terminal in Sector 43. Regular services operate between Chandigarh and Amritsar, Dharamsala and Manali, while buses to and from Delhi and Shimla operate from the bus station in Sector 17. Fast train services from Delhi arrive at Chandigarh train station, 5 miles southeast of the city centre. You can also get domestic flights between Chandigarh Airport and Delhi or Mumbai. Once in Chandigarh, you can jump on an auto-rickshaw or bus if you fancy exploring, while the hop-on hop-off tourist bus is an easy way to see the city’s sights.
