Visitors to a city select a hotel or lodging according to their budget and convenience. Usually hotels and lodging facilities close to the city center are more expensive. However most of the tourist attractions and business locations are closer to the city center, allowing the visitor to save both time and money. So for a person who is visiting the city for a very short period of time, it is advisable to select accomodation close to the city center
On the other hand, a person with an extremely limited budget may select a hotel in the suburbs as the cost of the lodging will be far lower due to lower real estate rates. However he or she may have to spend some time travelling. In case of cities with excellent public transport system like mumbai, the cost of travelling large distances using the local trains is affordable.
