Where to stay in Dehradun

The hill station of Dehradun has a welcome number of accommodations, allowing it to fulfill its role as something of a gatekeeper for wider explorations of the region. The bulk of accommodations center around Rajpur Road, with an abundance of standard hotels, guesthouses, and budget hostels to choose from. Look to the extremes of the urban area, in any direction, to find the more upmarket options in town, with a couple of resorts featuring pools, spas, and restaurants, and a number of rental cottages and villas.
