Where to stay in Shimoga

A major regional town and regular base of explorations, Shivamogga has a decent set of accommodations to cater to its guests. Lying mainly southwest of Shivamogga Town Railway Station, a set of hotels and guesthouses offers some upmarket, business-class options, as well as refreshingly simple lodgings designed for outdoor adventurers. Take a look at some places closer to the Tunga River if you want a little removal from the city, through most people are happy enough with the bit of instant green afforded by Gandhi Park in the middle of town.
