|As the city receives a number of people from around the world, there is always a high demand for hotel rooms and due to which the prices of the rooms are generally way higher than of a similar star rating property in the other cities of India. A number of luxury accommodations such as star rated hotels, resorts, villas, bungalows and cottages provide ultimate experiences to the rich and affluent travelers, there are good assortment of staying spaces for the budget travelers.
These low cost places to stay would be pricier than the other metro cities but still less expensive than some of the higher order hotels. There is no dearth of the cheap hotels and many aggregator agencies would be providing a list of hundreds of such Mumbai hotels. The first such category of hotels is that of guest houses. These are one time private residences of the people who have decided to turn these into guesthouses for the travelers. Most of these guesthouses provide the telecommunication facility, free or paid internet, room air conditioners/heaters and attached bathrooms. Further, the meals can be prepared and served right there in the guesthouse or they might be having arrangements with some caterers or restaurants nearby from where the meals can be pre-ordered. For the people who are only looking for places to put up at night time and at economical prices, these guesthouses are one of the options for stay.
There are other options such as the dormitories established by the non-profit organizations as rest houses for the travelers. These are generally less spacious than the hotel rooms. You might find these rooms too crunchy and equipped with different amenities within a small space. These are popular among the students and bachelors who come here for study and also among budget travelers. Dormitories generally accommodate more than one person in a room, so there is little or no privacy for the inhabitants.
You can also have good stay at the accommodations of government organizations such as railways or educational institutions such as college hostels. You might need to have some connection in order to avail the facility of living in these spaces. Railways also have retiring rooms and a list of these can be found online at website of the railways of a particular region.
These low budget hotel rooms can be located in different parts of the city, with the old transportation hubs, shopping centers and long established residential space being some of the top accommodating spaces for the tourists.
