          Yes exactly s what blueloon2 said. Your room will be without attached bathroom. There will be common bathroom and you have to share with others. But not to worries its clean and nearby room not far away from room.

          Hi Alka Hotel I've made reservations at your hotel and your staff contacted me if we needed an airport pick up service to which we answered yes. my question is about the price. On my expedia reservation form it is stated that ROUNDTRIP airport transfer is 850 rupees but your staff emailed and said its 850 for one way. I asked for price confirmation but haven't heard from your staff since. Please clarify the roundtrip car transfer price from the airport to Alka hotel. thanks.
