Where to stay in Bhopal

The accommodations in Bhopal's northern old town come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. The labyrinthine area close to the train station has a number of budget-friendly hostels along its many busy side streets, and some standard hotels on the wider roads of the district. Luxury converted heritage buildings offer the chance to stay in a storied Mughal palace, with all the five-star service that implies. The new town to the south possesses a mix of standard and luxury chain hotels, as well as some business-oriented options in the commercial Maharana Pratap Nagar area.
