The room tariff includes the buffet breakfast but 6% service tax will be charged extra on the room tariff. The above tariff is for 'single occupancy' and the charge will be about 20% more for double occupancy (double-bed or twin-bed). The above tariff is approximate and there are small (less than 15%) variations in the tariff among the hotels in the same category.
