Partak Niwas appears to be about the only choice of hotel in Kushinagar if you are on a budget, and unfortunately, our experience there was not good at all. The weather was still cool so we stayed in a non-AC room (600Rs). We’ve had very reasonable rooms in that price range elsewhere in India, but here we got a room that had crumbling plaster walls, an incredibly grimy bathroom with only a tiny trickle of water from the showerhead and taps, and dozens of mosquitos. We had to block a big hole under a window with a sheet to stop them entering, and they bothered us all night. The only positives were – it’s quiet, and the beds were clean and comfortable enough.
There are pricier rooms (1400-1700), which are the same but even staying in the pricey rooms won’t save you from the terrible restaurant, which was full of flies, and had tablecloths that were covered in stains and grime.
