Hotel Prayag

Hotel in Prayagraj (Allahabad)

A stone's throw south of the train station, this sprawling, well-organised local flophouse is helpful and boasts wi-fi (lobby only), a State Bank of India ATM and a funky restaurant. There's a wide variety of threadbare, basic rooms in various states of dilapidation (the cheapest ones are for hardened shoestring backpackers only), but staff are friendly and will even help negotiate autorickshaws.

Check-out is 24 hours from when you arrived.
