Don't expect much from your hotel in this land of enchantment of the Lord Buddha. Staff here don't appear very interested, slightly aloof, slow to serve. They don't mean anything by it, because once you light them up with smiles and interest they reciprocate. Room plain and large, bathroom simple. Internet works free all over which is nice. Not exactly... More

Bodhgaya is not a huge city - it is a very religious and therefore a simple town with some famous temples and sites. So coming to this hotel, as a western tourist, please do not expect 5* luxury. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The rooms and large and the beds are very comfortable. The cold tab stopped working every... More

A Quite n Serene Hotel in the Clean & Green City in the Land of Buddha situated at hardly 2 km walking distance from Mahabodhi Temple, Japanese Temple and all other major tourist locations of Bodhgaya. 15 km away from the City of Gaya. Tourist Attractions like Vishnupad temple & Falgu Rive (meant for Pind Dan- an holy Hindu ritual... More

Hotel Royal Residency is the best place to stay in Bodhgaya. Rooms are big, clean & well maintain. Every day they chance towel bedsheets and other things. Staffs are helping and friendly in nature. Foods are also very good.

Had gone to gaya for religious purpose with family in Sep 2014. Stayed for 1 Night. Great hotel, comfortable, stay. Rooms are spacious and clean with good room service. Although the hotel caters most to Japanese tourists and some of the facilities are towards Japanese culture but hospitality is Indian with food being the best part.

This is one of the finest hotel in Bodhgaya which is 4* similar (I am not sure their GOI rating). A impressive lobby along with a huge multi cuisine restaurant, nice friendly people in front desk as well as in F&B outlets. Located not far from Mahabodhi temple and close to other hotels like Taj Darbar and Heritage etc.

Its a great hotel in terms of cleanliness and beauty and everything else was fab!!!! Best Experience: The beds were very snugly which was lovely....and everything was well placed and clean.....this was the best part.... Worst Experience: the waiters can't understand English...so i think that needs a improvement...cause they have to deal with many tourist particularly non-Hindi Speaking Traveller

This is probably the best Hotel in Bodhgaya. But our experience was not very sweet. We had booked one triple-bed room in this hotel for two nights. We were three adults, two of whom were senior citizens. On arrival we were told at the reception that we don't have any reservation, but another person bearing the same from French Embassy... More
