If you’re traveling in India, how do you book a hotel in Hindi? You’ll know how after this free audio lesson! We’ll show you how to make a hotel reservation over the phone or speak to a Hindi-speaking receptionist in person. You’ll learn the Hindi words for “single”, “double” and “per person”. You’ll feel more confident with questions in Hindi like “how much?” and “how many?”, and the kind of basic Hindi conversation you need to understand. Listen carefully to the Hindi pronunciation of the native speakers and then practice saying the Hindi words and phrases aloud. Don’t be shy!
Pronouncing hotel in Hindi
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.
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.
You might answer:
The receptionist may also ask whether you want a single or a double room.
Your answer may look like this…
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:
Some hotels charge per room, others per person. Here are some possible answers you might get to hear…

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

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
