The prices range between simple and spotless rooms on average, to a few heritage or boutique stays you would spend an average of INR 2500 (34 USD, 29 EUR) for a room a night. You would have breakfast included for most nights, a private bathroom every night, and some hotels that may have a pool, a garden, or a beautiful view.
You can book for an affordable hotel even while studying in India. The best way entails that you sign up for emailers, price alerts, newsletters that various aggregator sites, and even the hotel websites offer. This is a perfect way to keep a tab of the upcoming discounts, flash sales, or some interesting promotional offer that they are coming up with. This can help you land a better price for the hotel of your choice.
However, if you do not wish to rely on these tools, make sure you close the booking at least a couple of months ahead of the date of your journey for a better tariff.
Also, be aware of the fact that the holiday season spikes up the hotel prices, so you should always make your booking at least a few weeks ahead if you are planning to travel in the high season.
In Delhi and Jaipur, you will enter a world of spices, shopping bazaars, palaces, and chalky red forts, while in Agra you will encounter what is undoubtedly India's majestic centerpiece, the Taj Mahal. These three cities are also widely regarded as the best places to spend India's world-famous Holi Festival; a wonderfully chaotic celebration of colour.
If you have more time to spare, then you are in luck. Stay north to see spectacular, rock-hewn temples rise from the desert in Khajuraho; Hampi’s unearthly world of rocks and ruins; and ancient funeral ghats beside the River Ganges in Varanasi. You could even go trekking, skiing or white-water rafting in the far northern valleys of Kullu, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.
Or head south for wild tiger reserves, Mumbai’s thriving Bollywood scene, Goa’s white-sand beaches, and the meandering backwaters of Kerala, where, after a long spell on the road, you will surely find your inner ‘shaanti’.
