The only good is the location just 10 minutes to Mahabodhi Stupa. Out of 5 rooms with 3 rooms "complimented" bed bugs!!! The room, the bed and the toilet was not properly sanitized, we decided to buy cleaning liquid and get the hotel staff to clean it up for us, to have good and safe sleep, after all, we have... More

The picture on their website is a crudely airbrushed photo of a completely different upmarket hotel with uniformed concierge unloading luggage onto a gilded trolley. Non of the interior shots look anything like the rooms we were shown either. Anyone who stoops to such deception deserves no custom. Dreadful place. Avoid.

Only plus is central location but then there are plenty of other places in similar position.Hot water never on , best they could do was a bucket ,power shut downs but no generator, room & bedding very dirty, windows had big gap around edge so insects & cold could enter , we asked for more blankets but only got one,...

We arrived tired and dishevelled after a long train journey then mad Tuk Tuk drive. The hotel looks nicer from the outside than the inside but the staff were lovely. Three of them booked us in, sprayed our room, checked the bathroom and one even saluted us when they left us to settle in. The room was very basic, the... More

Good point is location, but Bodhgaya is small so that is minor. Bathrooms are small and dirty and the water drains from the floor very slowly after a shower. The 24 hour hot water is not actually on all the time. The people were always trying to get more money from us, through various schemes. Would not stay here again... More

We stayed in this hotel during the Kalachakara , the location of the hotel is near to the Mahabodhi Temple and the Kalachakra venue. In the first day, when I pull out the drawer, to my horror, there was a huge rat inside..........then during dinner time, my friend's handbag was stolen in the restaurant...

We stayed at hotel embassy with a group of 10 people during the Kalachkra (a buddhist event). We payed 4800 Rs/night (~70€!) for a double room (some costumers paid up to 7000 Rs), which is clearly overpriced. Other hotels were also overpriced but not that much, and offered much better service. Most of the time we had no hot water;... More

We stayed in this place when we realised that we couldn't stay in a monastery due to our train leaving at 3am (they lock the gate overnight in the monasteries). The rooms were ok, largeish and clean however the hotel seemed to be a little run down, in the midst of renovations. However it was near the start of a... More

Bodhgaya was a delightful stay during the 9-weeks we spent traveling India. The Hotel Embassy was RS800 per night, which ended up feeling like a rip-off. The staff were really very nice and pleasant, but that turned out to be the only real positive of our stay there. The sheets were dirty, the toilet leaked, the walls were disgustingly dirty,...
