I just spent a wonderful week in an indian family home stay in the old village of Khajuraho. Sharing the life of this so kind family : "old" mama cooking great vegan food helped by daughter, having great tips from the two sons of where to walk, eat, see. Invited at lunch in a small organic farm where vegies were cooked on dirt fire, yoga on the terrasse.... And very very cheap nice clean rooms. Only two rooms for rent.. Hot warm water at shared bathroom... Real India + safe and perfect..Francois from Toulon France
We had a lovely time staying at Friends in Khajuraho. The room was comfortable and clean, the home cooked meals were delicious (especially the poha!), and Vijay and Ravi were so helpful. They gave us advice on where to go in Khajuraho and afterwards, arranged rickshaws for us, and made the time to talk with us about their lives. They are kind people doing wonderful work in their community. Couldn’t recommend staying with them more.
Got suggestions from by best friend of Khajuraho and i was just out amazed by their hospitality. Thanks to sirj and special thanks to Ravi bhai and brijesh bhaiya for the feel like home, i wish i had clicked pics
When we look for a place to sleep we dont look only for a bed, but also for a good location and of course good attention. Here in Friends In Khajuraho we found an amazing place, a very cozy place run by a very kind and attentive family. The room clean and very spacious, comfortable bed where I could have an excellent rest, I got an extra blanket so that I do not get cold at night. The bathroom, although it was shared with another room, was always clean, shower with hot water and with toilet paper, this may seem insignificant, but having a bathroom that does not lack toilet paper is not popular in India. This place is super well located in a very quiet neighborhood next to the old village and in front of bhrama temple also very close to the famous west temples of Khajuraho just 7 minutes by tuk tuk. They also have a menu where you can take on the rooftop the most traditional Indian food and very important if you order without spicy, they give you no spice. Breakfast rich and healthy, coffee or tea or chai, toast and fruit salad nothing heavy to start the morning It really was a great success to stay in this place I recommend it 100%.…
The photos of their home on TripAdvisor are not photoshopped, there really is a temple 30 feet from the front door. If your interests run towards greater interaction with local people, you will be very pleased with your visit as the guesthouse is in the small older Khajuraho village. If on the other hand, your tastes run to high end hotels, you will not be happy here. We ate several meals with the Friends, having thali plates that were flavored with traditional spices, only made a little less hot for our palates. I can't give an excellent rating for the main reason that the bed was very small and very uncomfortable. But, I enjoyed the visit very much and our stay with the Friends added much to our understanding of Indian culture.
