Hi friends,

I have a query. I am an Indian and 24 years old. Is it legal to stay in a hotel in India with my girlfriend (also an Indian, 23 years old) for 3-4 days? "IF" asked while booking the room at the reception, can I just say we are friends. Is that OK?

Wud be very glad to get some comments/feedback and sorry if my question is a bit naive

Thaks again

Well if both are above 18 years there is no law which prohibits staying together.

Make sure you don't look nervous when you check in, otherwise they might put you in a high priced honeymoon suite.

I think there should be no any problem. If your girlfriend is agree for that then ok, Actually what happen that receptionist keeps all quarry in his record. It's depend on you that you telling right or wrong.

Actually there can be problems these days especially in the smaller hotels in maharashtra. The smaller hotels are reluctant to give rooms to couples who are not married mainly to protect the hotel from being misused by those employed in the sex trade.

Don't say you are "friends". Depending on the hotel you may very well be told that no rooms are available.
Carry a cheap mangalsutra with you and tell your girl friend to wear it while signing in. Sign in as a couple on honeymoon. You will have no problems then.

i dont think you have to pretend anything..
Say it bold and aloud "She is my girlfriend"
If you say it meekly and as if you are ashamed you wont get the room..and you dont deserve it either

That works in the bigger hotels. In the smaller lodges and hotels in Maharashtra it usually does not work. The scene is totally different there.

A close friend of mine from Goa had a hard time on a few occasions while trying to get a room at different hotels in Kolhapur and other places in Maharashtra. He was with his girlfriend. The hotel clerks were not interested in giving out rooms to couples who were not married. After getting totally fed up he decided to buy a cheap mangalsutra which he keeps in his car.

In Goa of course there is no problem. But in Maharashtra the scene is totally different.

If you say that you are friends they might give you room, but then in night you will hear knock knock on your hotel door and if they inform police and they do raid, then they will call both your parents and imagine what will happen when your parents come to know that what you both people were doing ;-( ,

As you are unmarried yet adult, you have right to stay in hotel. It is good to tell truth then to hide true identity. and As long as you are not creating nuisance to hotel management. No show of affection in public place. Be careful of CCTV cameras fitted in room to watch your privacy.
Ensure your girl friend is not upset over your moves
Move confidently with hotel staff.
Clarify the matter with girl friend and tell her what both of you are going to do in room so that in case of hotel staff playing nasty, she should not get fearful but should support you with any public authorities.
Every Indian citizen is free to move any where with decency.
Sitting Silently, watch breathing,
Turbulence melts, showers soothing.
Miss you watching breathe,
thoughts catch you in seethe!
