Great location close to the main Maya Devi temple and all other shrines. Very helpful staff. Good choice of restaurants nearby. Good hot shower..
Need some more choice for breakfast.
Try as they did, the staff is just unprepared and untrained in hospitality. They were lovely but there were too many unavoidable incidents that made the stay more stressful with little effort (save apologizing) to rectify the mistakes made.
The location is just 2 minutes before the bus stop (I am traveling from Chitwan to Lumbini). The location of the hotel is really in front of the entrance of Lumbini Garden (the main site to enter Maya Devi Temple) just 500 meters walk from the entrance. Very easy!! The hotel has great resto and serves great Dal Bhat on the menu. The staffs are very friendly and very communicative, you can book taxis to anywhere around the city nearby (I book to Kapilvastu, Ramagrama Stupa, and Airport), very convenient! If you wanna ask things around the city, they will provide you and give you detail about it (they also have map around the city, but sadly during my visit, there is no more).
Travelling to Lumbini during summer is not very convenient, the temperature there is around 42 - 45 degrees Celcius. So prepare sunblock, hat and umbrella for extra protection. Electricity in Lumbini is a bit unstable, there are a lot of on-off happened during my stay in the hotel, but luckily it is less than 5 minutes duration. Another thing, taking a shower above 8 AM is not very effective, the water shower option is hot and super hot, not good. They don't have a fridge inside the room (but luckily you can always go downstairs to the resto and grab some cold water from the fridge).
Incredible dirty, and the front desk employee wanted to charge us 10 dollars more than the rate we agreed in booking.com
After arriving with a local bus and an autorikshaw on a the dusty unpaved road totally exhausted, Hotel Ananda was an otherworldly experience - clean, neat, with a working POS terminal, running hot water, AC, wifi strong enough to watch Youtube videos and all the other amenities that seem to be quite common in every other place, but give a feel of luxury in the rundown Lumbini Bazaar. Nothing is far from it - as Lumbini itself is rather a minuscule artificial development area than a real settlement.
With a stay at Hotel Ananda Inn in Lumbini, you'll be in the historical district, within a 15-minute walk of Mayadevi Temple and Ashoka Column. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
