High-end and Budget Rooms in India's Hotels and Guesthouses

Accommodation in India varies greatly. High-end hotels tend to be as expensive as in Europe or USA and provide exceptional service. Mid-range and budget rooms, however, can get very cheap and still remain good value for money. Touristic locations are pricier and do offer additional services like AC, Wi-Fi and laundry in return. 

Pictures below should be a good indicator of what one can expect in terms of price and looks. Prices are given per 1 night and tend to go down if you stay longer and if you are good at bargaining. Off-season prices can get even 5 times cheaper (check out our Mussoorie trip). Some hotels have fixed prices, others (especially family run entities) often make up a price based on how you look.
