India has a vast network of hotels meant to cater mainly for the domestic market, ranging from palatial hotels which far exceed 5 star standards, to the ‘ cheap & nasty’ range of the market. This is why we have this little India Accommodation Guide to help a tourist choose the ideal fit based on a given budget.
Generally though accommodation in India is excellent value for money compared to the rest of the world, especially parts of Europe & North America. High end and 4 star hotels offer superior levels of accommodation – this is especially because Indians generally adhere to an ancient philosophy, ‘ Aththi Devo Bhava ‘, meaning Guest is God.
It is this sentiment that has often seen Indian hotels such as the Oberoi brand, being severally voted the best in the world by the magazine Travel & Leisure – see http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/worlds-best-hotels-2013/9
