क्या आपके पास एक कमरा उपलब्ध है?

kyā āpake pāsa eka kamarā upalabdha hai?

Do you have a room available?

Two useful words to know at this point are "kamaraa" a room, and "khaalee" available or literally free. The receptionist may respond…

हाँ, हमारे पास कमरे उपलब्ध हैं/ हाँ, हमारे पास खाली कमरे हैं

hām̐, hamāre pāsa kamare upalabdha haiṃ/ hām̐, hamāre pāsa khālī kamare haiṃ

Yes, we still have rooms available.

नहीं, कोई कमरा खाली नहीं है ।

nahīṃ, koī kamarā khālī nahīṃ hai ।

No, unfortunately we have no rooms available.

नहीं, सभी कमरे आरक्षित हैं ।

nahīṃ, sabhī kamare ārakṣita haiṃ ।

No, we are booked out.

When asking for the price the receptionist at the hotel will need to know for how many people and for how many nights you want the room.

कितने लोगों के लिए?

kitane logoṃ ke lie?

For how many people?

कितनी रातों के लिए?

kitanī rātoṃ ke lie?

For how many nights?

You might answer:

दो लोगों के लिए ।

do logoṃ ke lie ।

For two people

एक रात के लिए ।

eka rāta ke lie ।

For one night

The receptionist may also ask whether you want a single or a double room.

एक सिंगल कमरा

eka siṃgala kamarā

A single room

एक डबल कमरा

eka ḍabala kamarā

A double room

Single bed in Hindi

Your answer may look like this…

मुझे एक सिंगल कमरा दो रातों के लिए चाहिए

mujhe eka siṃgala kamarā do rātoṃ ke lie cāhie

A single room for two nights, please.

मुझे एक डबल कमरा एक रात के लिए चाहिए

mujhe eka ḍabala kamarā eka rāta ke lie cāhie

A double room for one night, please.

When asking for the price simply say “keemat kya hai…” how much is it for… and add the type of room and number of nights you want. For example:

एक सिंगल कमरा दो रातों को लेने की कीमत क्या है?

eka siṃgala kamarā do rātoṃ ko lene kī kīmata kyā hai?

How much is it for a single room for two nights?

एक डबल कमरा एक रात को लेने की कीमत क्या है?

eka ḍabala kamarā eka rāta ko lene kī kīmata kyā hai?

How much is it for a double room for one night?

Some hotels charge per room, others per person. Here are some possible answers you might get to hear…

एक रात को सत्तर रुपये होंगे । / एक रात के लिए सत्तर रुपये होंगे

eka rāta ko sattara rupaye hoṃge । / eka rāta ke lie sattara rupaye hoṃge

That costs 70 Rupees per night.

एक व्यक्ति के लिए पच्चास रुपये होंगे

eka vyakti ke lie paccāsa rupaye hoṃge

That costs 50 Rupees per person.

एक डबल रूम के 50 रुपये प्रति व्यक्ति खर्च होंगे

eka ḍabala rūma ke 50 rupaye prati vyakti kharca hoṃge

A double room costs 50 Rupees per person.

एक सिंगल कमरे का प्रति रात खर्चा पच्चास रुपये होगा

eka siṃgala kamare kā prati rāta kharcā paccāsa rupaye hogā

A single room costs 50 Rupees per night
