Nexus between your taxi and hotel owners.
How much you would like to pay for a decent AC room? If you have asked your taxi driver to take you to a hotel then get ready to pay 200 to 300 extra as this money is going to the pocket of your taxi driver. However it is always better if you have contact number of some hotels then you can ask them about availability and then tell your taxi driver that you already have a booking and you just need a drop at your hotel. Ask your hotel about the distance and how much will be the taxi cost. Some hotels will offer a pickup or drop facility to nearest station. If you are depending on your taxi driver then It is likely that you pay more and get poor quality hotel in this deal.
There are good hotels with reasonable charges at main road close to railway station and metro.
