So you’re coming to Nepal and the agent has quoted you with 2 prices, normal hotel and 3 star hotel based. You think to yourself why is such a big difference in prices? Let us clarify you about these 2 different kinds of hotels.
NORMAL HOTEL: Clean, comfortable yet simple hotel. It seems normal or budget hotel has the basic kind of room structure and even the internal finishing. The rooms are small, simple with bed, simple attached bathroom, wardrobe, washing basin, etc. The hotel won’t be spacious enough to have a safari around. Other amenities apart from café / restaurant and reception, it’s hard to find in such hotels. One can tell the difference even from the moment of entering the hotel for the first time.
3 STAR HOTEL: In contrast, 3 star hotels are large, spacious and elegant. The rooms are stylishly decorated. All rooms have their own shower and toilet, a writing table and chair, a telephone, TV, central heating, cooler and even body care products. Other services or amenities include room service, luggage handling, drinking bars, recreational facilities, indoor health or fitness centers, etc.
It depends on the preference of the guests. You see, people have different tastes. Some might like to stay in a normal hotel and spend money in other things while some might like to stay in luxury hotel and spend less outside. So, we will leave that decision up to you.
