6 Great Places To Stay Other Than 5* Hotels

Although 5* hotels are most sought after by travellers for their luxury and opulence, they may not always afford you a quiet, serene, and relaxing holiday. The charm of smaller inns, bed-and-breakfast getaways, and vacation cottages has to be experienced to be truly believed.

For those of you who are looking for some great places to stay during your travels in India but don't want to go in for any 5* properties, here are the top 6 places that will help you unwind and rejuvenate.


  • Villa Jakaranda, Kerala
    Villa Jakaranda, Kerala In recent years, Kerala has become a must visit destination for Indian as well as overseas travellers. The untouched landscapes and pristine beauty is what attracts people to this location, which is exactly what you get at this lovely bed-n-breakfast hotel. The ultimate in understated elegance, Villa Jacaranda offers you spacious accommodations with your own private veranda! Visitors to this place swear by the sumptuous breakfast that is served on your own terrace. This hotel is in Varkala, Kerala.
  • Shanti Home, New Delhi
    Shanti Home, New Delhi If you're a discerning traveller who is looking for more than just a hotel room during your travels, then the 17 exclusively designed rooms and suites at Shanti Home are just right for you. Shanti Home achieves the perfect blend of Indian tradition and modern sophistication throughout the place. Superb interiors, flawless service and food that is to-die-for - these make Shanti Home the ideal retreat in New Delhi.
  • Sutra D'Onyx, Mumbai
    One of the best places to stay in the crowded Bandra area, Sutra D'Onyx is truly a kind of oasis in the modern jungle. This place boasts of 6 elegantly furnished rooms which are part of 2 three bedroom flats. You also get to enjoy a private living and dining room even if you opt for just one room and not the entire apartment. Other services include wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, DVD, 24-hour security and room service.
  • Suba Palace, Mumbai
    Suba Palace, Mumbai It is extremely difficult to find cheap accommodations in Mumbai which are cheap in money terms but not in quality. However, Suba Palace is definitely one such place. It is a nice, clean, and comfortable hotel that is not overpriced. Situated just a few minutes walk from the Gateway of India, you are centrally located to enjoy Mumbai to the fullest. Competent staff, fast room service, and good food make this a great value for money hotel in the craziness that is Mumbai.
  • Hotel Pearl Palace, Jaipur
    Hotel Pearl Palace, Jaipur A truly magnificent hotel in the heart of the Pink City Jaipur, it is sure to make you want to come back for more. The service standards at this hotel surpass even the best 5* hotels across India. The terrace restaurant, though eclectic, is wonderful! The rooms are deluxe all the way - very clean, comfortable and huge. And the icing on the cake is definitely the staff and the owners of this beautiful hotel for whom nothing is too much trouble for their guests. Highly recommended.
  • Mantheven Homes, Goa
    Mantheven Homes, Goa While there are many 5* hotels in Goa, majority of the hotels you will find are quite basic and not much to talk about - essentially just rooms to put your head down in the night. However, Mantheven Homes is vastly different. Located just 5 minutes walk from the famous Calangute beach, this hotel is truly a little piece of paradise. There are many great bars and restaurants in the vicinity but in spite of that the hotel is utterly peaceful and serene. The hosts will make you comfortable during your stay to such an extent that you may find it hard to leave!
