“unexpected retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

after a noisy stay in Varanasi I really enjoyed the quietness of the little garden in the back of the hotel. The Staff is very friendly and of great help planning your further trip. The really went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were almost family. the Hotel is in walking distance to the West group of the temples and the others are only a 5 minute bike ride away. If you are looking for a place to relax and chill - your search has come to an end.

We had read the positive reviews about the Zen Hotel on Trip Advisor and for that reason decided to stay there. We were not disappointed. It is situated in the small town itself and is only a short walk from the temple area. Our room was sizeable and clean with a shared terrace where we ate breakfast outside our room. There is also a pleasant garden and the manager and staff were all very willing and friendly. It is great value and our short stay worked perfectly.

I recently stayed at Zen and loved it.Bed was comfy,adequate blankets,good hot shower and decent food.
What really made this hotel great for me other than location,price and the garden...was the staff.Went out of their way for me...especially Ajay.He took me on the best motorbike tour of Khajuraho,making Khajuraho my favorite place thus far in India.
Khajuraho is amazing..and I would not have seen half of ot if it wasnt for me staying at Zen......Thankyou :)

The rooms are clean but the staff is just too much! Everything here is about money. Be wary that they do charge a 10% room tax or something on to the price you agree upon. Commission to book train tickets were 100 rupees per ticket per person which is very high compared with travel agencies or other guest houses.

We were provided a "free meal" of a thali to celebrate Kali? or something like that. Right when we were done eating they told us to write a Trip Advisor recommendation. We wanted to hang out for a bit and said later. They were persistent and came back two or three times within a short time frame. Two friends we were traveling with were walked over to an internet cafe while staff sat right next to them and watched what they typed on tripadvisor review. Couldn't believe it!

Rooms near the road are noisy with cars, bikes, people. Rooms in the back are cheaper (around 300 rupees) but very noisy with the kitchen nearby and staff yelling and talking loudly around 6 AM.

Location is decent near the western gate but there are TONS of other options.
