Reservations – You can book by phone or email. In my experience, phone was easier. They simply take the reservation without asking for a credit card. Larger, chain hotels would probably ask for a card.
Ask for a pick up – this seemed to work 50% of the time. When booking your reservation, ask for a pick up from the train station if that’s how you’re arriving. This is a wonderful service, especially if you’re arriving in the evening. The hotel pays for the pick-up. You give a tip.
Check your room – Before you agree to stay, check your room and confirm the price. No window? Ask for another or a discount.
Payment – all the middle and budget hotels I stayed at took cash only.
Ear plugs – if you are a light sleeper ear plugs are a good idea. Buildings in India are made of material like marble that bounces sound around. Staff in the lobby and morning religious rituals nearby can be loud.
Hot Water – in many budget hotels you need to turn on the boiler about 15 minutes before you want hot water.
Power – The power is sometimes shut off between certain hours every day. In my experience, two hours in the morning and another two in the afternoon.
Expensive Hotels – if on a budget, I enjoy these luxury hotels and their views for a meal or drinks.
