You can tell straightaway that it is very well run, by the person in charge of managing the whole place. This is really a very good place to stay when visiting Bodhgaya, especially if your objective is to go to the stupa area daily. Which is what I did. Morning and evening. The guesthouse is just a 5 minutes' walk...

Very nice & affordable place to stay near Maha-bodhi temple. Hotel staffs are very polite and the best thing is that they are ready to make everything your way. Rooms and corridors are very spacious for the children to play and adults to hang around.

I think this hotel is in a great location however, not the best option for people who have infants, people who are elderly and with foot and knee problems or wheelchair bound individuals. This hotel has too many small stairs. The entrance to lobby itself has like 20 plus steep stairs and if your room happened to be on one...

Rooms are fine, not great or grand, rather very basic, but clean and well equipped. The room service during off seasons is really poor, but if u do get food, its palatable and seems helathy, don't expect some cuisine. Laundary is poor, they use standard rate for garments, a hankey and jacket is of same rate, wow !

This is a place run by a Tibetan Monastery. The rooms here are pleasant and airy. In the courtyard and the spacious lobby you can even see monks often hold court. They say that His Holiness Dalai Lama stayed here during his visit to this place in Gaya in 1998. The basic amenities like television and restaurant are available here....
