The place to stay in Lumbini
My main goal was to see the Maya Devi where Shakyamuni Buddha was born. Hotel Ananda Inn is just steps from the archway where the short walk to the Temple begins. Excellent service from the management and waiters from the adjoining restaurant where we ate all of our meals.

6/10 Good

The hotel was average at best. we made unknowingly a 3 X nights reservation. But everything can be seen in one day only which is not the hotel fault. It is simply just a very dusty place with very little to do or restaurants to go to. The location was good, just 50 m. away from the main gate.

Great hotel
Wow! By far the best hotel I stayed in while in Nepal. The best air conditioning for certain and it was needed for the very hot temps. Close to the gate to see the birthplace of the Lord Buddha and the pillar of Asoka. Nice little restaurant on site, friendly staff. Clean rooms. A little more money but we ll worth it!

4/10 Fair

On my Nepal trip, this was the most expensive hotel at 40$/night. It was also the worst. Yes, all the review sites and guides say that there is not much choice in Lumbini unless you stay outside of town and for that you need your own transportation. They are correct. Pros: 24/7 hot water, staff were great, and the bed was comfortable. Cons: the bathroom neeed to be thoroughly bleached and deconned- bring your own shower shoes; while the bed was comfortable, I slept on top of my silk sheet liner because the sheets, etc. were scary; the aircon was useless-it barely blew out tepid air and you needed the fan, the room was grimy and there were three smashed, dead insects on the wall. Your bottled water was not refilled each day. The staff did recommend that I leave early (0600) for the Buddist Park instead of going after breakfast because it would be cooler. They were right. I was done before 1000 and the staff kindly let me have my included breakfast late. The load shedding was continuous (mostly in the evening); about every half hour things would go off and then the generator would kick in. The hotel does have a nice selection of souvenirs at competitive prices.

Take in the sites, rest in the garden
Aside from easy access to Lumini, the folks at Hotel Ananda Inn were wonderful; inviting, supportive, and really, really helpful. Normally, I don't spend too much time in hotel restaurants but Maitri Restaurant attached to the hotel is really good. I'm sorry that there were some customers who wrote their disappointment, but bear in mind, they do make their dishes from scratch and the ingredients are fresh. Plus, you're in South Asia! The pace is going to be leisurely (which to many westerners might just be sloooow); leave the expectation of speedy service behind and enjoy just sitting in a nice quiet place. There's also a lovely garden you take your tea in, if you so desire. Also, they arranged a highly reasonable car to Kapilavastu. Top-notch. Altogether, my stay was very, very fine. If the kind people at Ananda are reading this, "hello! and thank you for a wonderful time!"
