  9. Hi Gaurav, good blog. nice and informative. Why dont you also write on best hostels in India for tourists. hostels are preferred by europeans and americans and now india has few professionally managed hostels like Crashpad hostotel,zostel hostel or moustache hostel…

  10. Hello. Please suggest me the best hotel in chennai.

  11. Hello Mr. Srivastava, thanks to these updates.

  12. Great list,I found the picture of Wildflower Hall, Shimla most interesting , it like the ones that we see in TV’s of hotels abroad I’am amazed its really in Shimla.

  13. Though there are a plethora of luxury hotels in India, I would say these 10 hotels are the best when you want to live opulently in your journey and take home the best memories of your life. But, if you see, budget-friendly hotels are the most demanded these days as they provide all the modern amenities with much less price than the luxury hotels. And the tourists can get these hotels in almost every tourist attractions. It’ll help them to save money on their accommodation and can finance another trip to a new destination.
