Where to stay in Ranchi

For a city with relatively little tourist appeal, Ranchi offers a surprising selection of accommodations. The majority of these come in the form of small hotels and guesthouses close to the train station. Unfortunately, many budget-friendly options offer only basic amenities and maintain questionable standards of hygiene. For something more comfortable, consider the options along the northern section of Main Road, where you can find larger modern hotels, including global chain brands.
