Representative Image,

March 28, 2017: Do you remember the good old days when hosting guests was no problem at all? People had huge homes and inviting family and guests to a wedding, family events or get –together was not a logistical nightmare. But today, as the families are becoming more nuclear in character and the size of homes are shrinking, organizing a family function that entails the attendance of extended family and friends has become a matter of much contemplation and debate. Especially, if you reside in NCR, you will have to jostle some things.  Below are some common questions most of us will have when looking for accommodation for guests –

  • Location– Will it be centrally located?
  • Budget – Will it be within one’s means or pocket?
  • Facility – Will the facility be adequate to ensure the comfort of guests?
  • Service – Will it have basic room service and laundry?

Addressing all of the above concern to the best, OYO, India’s largest branded network of Hotels has come to the rescue of several people who are looking for a comfortable yet affordable stay for their guests.

The OYO Advantage

Convenience of Booking – The platform has a dedicated app and web portal. Every user has a separate login, and all booking and cancellations can be done from a single log-in.

Just specific search details and you will find a complete list of hotels in Greater Noida.

Budget-Friendly –With so many guests to host, finding an accommodation that doesn’t burn a big hole in the pocket is rather difficult. Not everyone can afford uber-luxurious stay for guests. However, with OYO rooms, that concern has been put to rest.  Not only are the hotels listed on the website budget-friendly they are well equipped with all essential facilities that anyone would want.

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
