    HOTEL REVIEWS

    Note: Wherever hotel website not available I have included the link from the other sides.

    Mewar Inn - Udaipur

    An excellent budget hotel with the rooms very good. Did not have food at the hotel. Very friendly room service guys. Only grouse here is parking which is on the road opposite to the hotel. However, since the traffic is low and security available there should not be any worry.

    Hotel Bluemoon - Amritsar

    A good accommodation with not so great room service. The food was great but the arrogance show by the room service guy is ridiculous. I was asked to order breakfast with no menu given. My option was to skip it just for the arrogance.

  6. Add 20% inflation to that if doing it in the next year to be on the safer side..

    Off course, even with tolls, fuel cost, food, you name it, it will be costlier and revised every other month, so next year we should be happy if the inflation cost is only 20%.

    Very well written travelogue and some nice crisp pics.

    I know I read it late as I was just searching for threads with information for Shri Veshnodevi darshan and found yours.

    I felt sad for your uncomplete Leh trip.

    Thanks for the logue it helped me in some ways.
