Yatri Nivas is a clean, comfortable and affordable hotel. I've found many of the cheaper ($75-150) "Western-style" hotels in Hyderabad to be very poor value. At $35 a night for an A/C double, this place is a good value. It's a bit rough around the edges (don't look at the finishes and fixtures too closely) but it has its own charm. It's well-run and the service is very good.
There are three restaurants which are always busy with Indian businessmen. The Indian dishes are excellent, but avoid the Chinese and Thai and International dishes - they are not quite right, in some cases not even close to the original. Not bad, but not what you are expecting.
I'll be staying there again.More
