How to choose your hotel? Some tips for sleeping well
Aurangabad is not a very budget friendly city to sleep. Since tourism is not very important, hotels are filled with businessmen who come to do business. Rates are not like cheapest place in India. You will not find rooms at less than Rs 500 a night as it is possible in Rajasthan.
1- Choose your location
Choosing the right location for your tour program is essential. Aurangabad is a small city, only 1.5 million people, the city is very extensive. Indeed, there is less infrastructure than 5 floors and residential areas are rather occupied by small houses. In addition, it is necessary to count with the circulation. Like all cities in India, Aurangabad can suffer from traffic jams that increases travel time.
2- Never take a room on the major street side
It may seem obvious but indeed, a hotel room on a main road with a street view can be extremely noisy. In case if you select a hotel that is on a major way, try to request a room with a view of the courtyard. This will allow you to limit the noise coming from outside and you will be able to sleep peacefully
The same hotel can offer different services for the same room. Evaluate whether the price of the breakfast supplement is worth it. The hotel with a restaurant can also be a plus when you come back from a day of exploration. In any case, the reviews will give you an idea of the quality of hotel services. Do not forget to check them.
The tariff is one of the most important criteria when choosing a hotel. This is perfectly normal. But sometimes for 100 rupees more you can completely change your hotel category. It would be a shame not to take advantage of this upgrade. We advise you to always search by having the widest price range possible. If your budget is 1200 rupees, in filter you can put up to 1600 rupees and evaluate if it’s worth it.
