  1. Ο/Η Fortune Park Hotels Ltd λέει:

    Bangalore is having a very strong contender as far as its IT development is concerned in the form of its neighboring city Hyderabad. The increasing number of hotels reservation, business hotels, and airport hotels very aptly point towards this fact. Business is booming in this city and hence travelers are increasing. Today Hyderabad is as much known as an IT hub as it was famous as a tourist destination. The fact that the rates are comparatively cheaper in this place has also helped in attracting business at a fast rate to this south Indian city.
