Shantidevi Ashram's Guesthouse

Top choice guesthouse in Bodhgaya

This unassuming but tastefully decorated boutique-like guesthouse makes a simple Zen-like retreat from the hustle and bustle of the main drags. Fan-cooled rooms come with artwork, colourful rugs on concrete floors and superhard beds. Bathrooms are small but spotless. There's no restaurant, but guests can use the kitchen and washing machine.

The location is great for the Root Institute for Wisdom Culture but less convenient for exploring the town.
