What Factors Determine the Star Ratings? 

The rating of a hotel represents the quality of services they are providing. It usually varies from 1-star which is the lowest to 5-star which is the highest according to the quality, cleanliness and other standards. The hotels with a rating of 1 star are the cheapest staying options that lack even the basic services. In contrast, hotels with 5-star ratings provide luxury stays with world-class facilities. There are some 7-star hotels as well which provide more than exceptional services.
