Where to stay in Khajuraho

The worldwide fame of the Khajuraho temples has given rise to a vibrant tourist industry; consequently, this relatively small town offers a range of accommodation facilities. Most hotels concentrate along the airport road and main temple road, varying from luxury international chains to low budget lodgings. Five-star deluxe outlets with spas, pools, landscape gardens, and views of temples tend to lie closer to the airport, while economy accommodations surround the eastern group of temples and follow the Khudar River. Some family-friendly, affordable establishments have good views of the temples, and a few of the mid-range hotels feature lovely rooftop restaurants.
