How did we pick these India hotels?

Our editorial team selected the India hotels on this list based on price, location and real customer feedback from hotel booking sites and review platforms. Where applicable, we used our own personal experiences to make recommendations.

Which sites let me book India accommodation with free cancellation?

These sites let you make a refundable booking for your trip to India, so there's less risk of losing the cost of your stay or deposit. Some sites only offer free cancellation on select India hotels or at a slightly higher rate, so it's best to check the terms on your booking before confirming your stay.

Most sites, like Wotif or Expedia, will clearly state whether each India hotel is non-refundable.
