It wasn't that bad. I arrived here late in the evening after getting buses from Pokhara Nepal, and walking across the border into India, and then another bus to Gorakhpur. The Hotel is opposite the train station, and surrounded by the colour and life of India some nice places for dinner in the main street outside the hotel. The Ardash Palace is old, but my room was OK, clean and a comfortable bed and hot shower. my room was nice with marble floors and bathroom it was probably delightful in its day, but a bit worn out now. but for the price is was good and close to the station for my morning train.
