I stayed in this hotel to attend a conference. I could walk to western group of temples and Shilpagram from the hotel. They arranged a gypsy for the wild life sanctuary safari. They even packed our dinner for the train which has no pantry. Though they made a confusion on billing they sorted it out. You need not have to unplug the bed lamp or the coffee-maker if you want to charge your mobile or camera. There are many plug points under the table hidden. Everyday, the girls in spa arranged the flowers beautifully in bowls. (see photo). Since I had to go out to enter the spa in cold weather, I could not visit the spa on all days. There is free WiFi in the hotel which is a boon so that all the mails could be read in the train itself. They have kept Hindu tradition all over - from 'Namashkar' at the entrance to Kuthuvelakku (traditional lamp) and Krishna and Radha paintings. Suddenly an Italian marble statue is found out of place in this theme. (see photo) There are rooms only in ground and first floors. No lift. All of them have balcony. For the first time, I am happy staying in ground floor room. They have made garden on the road side also. Ample parking space is there.
Khajuraho is a wonderful place for history and culture buffs. Although reaching Khajuraho is not very easy, unless you are flying in from Delhi. We took a train from Mumbai to Satna (18 Hrs) and a Taxi from Satna to Khajuraho-Rs.700/- (1 and ½ hrs of back breaking journey). State transport is virtually non-existent. The Delhi-Khajuraho rail link is to commence from Jan 2009. We stayed at the Radisson, which we realized is one of the places to stay at Khajuraho. The check in was smooth and efficient and the staff was sweet enough to allow us to choose our room. The lobby was welcoming with large sofa’s and water pools and small fountains dotting the entire place.The hotel is located at around 1 KM away from the Western Group of temples and you can reach there by Auto or Cycle rickshaw for around Rs.10/- or a lazy stroll of 10 minutes. . The hotel has a serene surrounding and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The town is very quiet and safe and the people are absolutely friendly and helping. Time here loses meaning and you would for all practical purposes would not require your watch, the pace of life is slow, mellow and relaxed. The town is so small that within 1 day almost everyone knew us from the vendors at the bus stop to the richshaw drivers and just about all the shopkeepers and the restaurant staff at the Raja’s Café. Raja’s café is just opposite the entrance of the western group temples and is debatably the best eatery in the town and serves both Indian and Continental dishes. The Indian dishes are made considering the foreign tourist’s palate in mind. The son of a Swedish lady who had made Khajuraho her home runs the place. The western group of temples is the most prolific and exhaustive of all the groups (Eastern Group consists of three Jain temples and southern has one Dhuladeo temple). One requires around 5-6 hours to explore the western group. The temples are built by different generations of the Chandela dynasty. The sculptures on the temples are exquisite and unlike popular imagination is not all about sex. It depicts the charm of daily social and family life. According to folklore the purpose of building the temple complex was to get people back to the social life, which was waning, with the advent of Buddhism. The light and sound show at the temple complex is a must visit as it dramatically recreates the history of Khajuraho with Amitabh Bachchan’s soulful voice over. The rooms were very luxurious and smallest of the details have been attended to. The rooms were very tastefully done and had the usual tea-coffee maker and a mini bar. The bathroom was fully stocked with all kinds of kits (Dental/Sewing, etc) so you don’t have to fret if you forgot get something. The room has a large balcony and offers a wonderful view of the pool. The doorframe of the balcony was a dampener as it was made of steel and shabbily painted and it opened and closed with a characteristic clank, it stood out like a sore thumb in an otherwise very tasteful interior. Thankfully the curtains, when drawn, cover this aberration. The a-la-carte breakfast was amazing; the chef had tried his level best to serve Authentic South Indian cuisine. The Aloo paratha’s were out of the world!!! The hotel has a very large pool, with poolside sittings, which we didn’t use as the temperature was around 3 Degree Celsius. The bar was well stocked and unlike the restaurant, was not very steeply priced. The cocktails are passable (I tried the Ciaprinha) and it was far from good, stick to the basics here. There is not much to do when you are not visiting the temples. The hotel does have a pool table, carom board, chess board and a library (not exhaustive)in the lobby. They also have a spa with Kerala massage facility. Overall it was a wonderful experience at Radisson and Khajuraho would love to go back.
Myself Sumit from Bhopal, Last year I mean in Nov 2013 my wife and I were planning to have a three to four days tour vacation at any place within Madhya Pradesh. Then we planned to move toward "Khajuraho" A lovely romantic place for any couple to visit and a best place for us and The hotel Radisson there completed our trip by providing our all amenities along with their extraordinary services. The Rooms were awesome, and as my wife and I are foodies so we always do search for a place where we can get the awesome Indian & Continental foods taste. The services at anytime is the best part of the Hotel Radisson. From that trip till today every time I prefer only and only Hotel Radisson not only at Khajuraho But all around India & can't stop myself from advising other to do the same. So go on and select Hotel Radisson, you all will enjoy this decision.
I had visited khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh from 27th to 29th January 2016 along with my two other friends. We stayed in hotel radisson, khajuraho (room 153 and 155). The hotel has 90 rooms. This was my second visit to a radisson property, the first being radisson hotel in newcastle, nsw, australia long ago. The first impression while entering the hotel was great as it had well maintained lawns, the reception area was well decorated and the staff at reception very courteous and prompt. The rooms were quite spacious and each room had a flat screen tv with many channels, an electric kettle, iron and a safe. Bathroom has bath tub, complimentary toiletries, but no shaving kit, no toothpaste and no toothbrush. The shower had good pressure and, it being, winter, the water was hot and nice. The water, however, spilled out of the bath tub. The rooms had balcony, but one could not step out to balcony as it was locked. The beds were cozy and we had a good night sleep. The hotel has spa, swimming pool and gym too. The temple cafe provided excellent breakfast, but felt lunch/ dinner were far from satisfactory. The live traditional music in the lobby was nice. The hotel is ideally located with just 1Â½ km away from the western group of khajuraho temples. Airport and railway station not very far to. The hotel provided free internet too, which had excellent speed. The overall stay was very comfortable. Since mostly people visit here in cars, I found that there was no provision for stay of drivers. Room tip: breakfast is good but lunch/ dinner was not satisfactory. The spa is not worth.
It is an adorable spot for Art and society lovers. There are landmarks and sanctuaries in region of 5kms and waterfall inside of 15-20kms which is enormous and can be said as Niagara falls of India. Airport is 2kms from Hotel. It is amusing to appreciate the spot. The rooms are perfect, extensive and cutting edge. It has 24-hour power, aerating and cooling, boiling hot water, and web. The eatery served omelets in the morning, notwithstanding a smorgasbord. Truth be told, all suppers were awesome. GPS does not work here legitimately and portable system additionally not useful for street trip. So run with the points of interest if passing by street.
