Hotel Geetanjali – Travelling on a Budget

Posted March 15, 2013, at 12:53 p.m.

Hyderabad occupies a unique position on the map of India. With its confluence of cultures and traditions, the city is often described as a link between the north and the south, and a meeting place of the east and the west. This requires travelers to Hyderabad to understand a few rules of thumb to ensure that their stay in Hyderabad is as memorable as ever especially for the solo travelers.

1. Accepting Hotel Recommendations

Most travelers are now familiar with booking hotels online or through their smartphones and this is the best way to research for hotels. Several times travelers find themselves in situations where often accept recommendations of budget Hyderabad hotels from the local auto driver. While this in itself is not a bad idea, it should not be taken at face value. Too often tourists settle for the first hotel the auto driver takes them and this more often has to do with which hotel pays the higher commissions to the auto drivers.

2. Dress reasonably

Due to the confluence of several conservative cultures and traditions in Hyderabad, Hyderabad people are comparative conservative compared to other cosmopolitan cities like Bangalore/Mumbai. In most shopping or newer parts of the city such as Abids, HiTec City a vibrant night life and cosmopolitan culture is very much visible, but travelers are especially advised to dress conservatively when visiting areas of the old city such as Charminar.

3. Photo Identification

Heightened security measures are in place in all hotels of Hyderabad. All travelers must ensure they carry proper identification when they check in to the hotel. All visitors are screened and monitored via closed circuit camera in the best Hyderabad hotels and this is also a important sign of a good budget hotel in Hyderabad. Make sure you ask the receptionist if there are proper security measures in force. If you are expecting a visitor, it is always better to inform the reception ahead of time so the visitors are not subjected to inconvenience. If you are visiting from abroad you may be required to show your passport and valid visa.

4. Respect the environment

Hyderabad is located on the Deccan Plateau. Due to this water is always at a premium and the burgeoning population has made conservation and preserving the environment all the more important. Very few budget hotels in Hyderabad emphasize this currently so as to not turn off travelers, but some of the notable ones that do are Hotel Geetanjali in Abids that has made its motto to be the pre-eminent green hotel in the budget category

5. Transit

Consider hotels that provide complimentary pick up from transit locations such as Railway stations or airport. Airport pick ups set up by the hotel for you will be costly if you are on a budget. Consider taking a prepaid cab from the airport and you can save. Pre paid cabs are located right outside the airport and fares are regulated and cabs are monitored and registered with the government.

Follow these simple tips and make your trip to Hyderabad memorable by finding best Hyderabad package tour. As someone said, Hydera-Goodie in Hydera-Baddie!
