Lakhsmi Kutir: Campamento / Tent camp

Buscar un sitio que fuera limpio , seguro y que estuviera cerca de la "movida" era importante para nosotros .
Estuvimos dudando entre quedarnos en Allahabad o quedarnos en la zona del Sangam y al final decidimos , aconsejados por la agencia , que fuéramos a quedarnos en el campamento de Lakhsmi Kutir que estaba en la sección 11 , cerca de Jhusi , al borde de un promontorio desde donde se veía todo el Prayag los ríos , las luces , la gente y ese ruido que parecía un hormiguero , sólo alterado por los ruidos de los altavoces
El campamento perfecto , con tiendas de "lujo", que tenían los aseos incluidos , muy limpias y cuidadas. La comida , toda vegetariana muy rica y el trato y la atención del personal excelente
El único problema que tuvimos fue que el día que llegamos a las 7 de la mañana ya estaban cortadas todas las carreteras de acceso al Prayag y había que llegar andando , pues sólo permitían la entrada de los coches de los Shadus . El guía decidió buscar algún hueco para entrar hasta el campamento y fue toda una odisea que nos llevó casi una hora, tuvimos que subir al coche a un niño de esos pueblos que nos iba dirigiendo campo a través , pero aunque los controles eran muy buenos conseguimos llegar hasta el campamento . Cuando salimos lo hicimos en cinco minutos , pues los caminos ya estaban abiertos
To find a place clean, safe, and near the "move" was important to us.
We were doubting between staying in Allahabad or stay in the Sangam area and we decided, advised by the agency, that we were to stay in the camp Lakhsmi Kutir in Section 11, in Jhusi near the edge of a promontory where we could see the Prayag ,the rivers, the lights, the people and the noise that seemed an anthill, only disturbed by noise of the speakers
The camp was perfect, with "luxury" tents , which included the toilets and were very clean and tidy. The food, all vegetarian very good and treatment and service of best quality
The only problem we had, it was that the day we arrived at 7 in the morning , were blocked all access roads to Prayag and they only allowed the entry of vehicles from the Shadus. The guide decided to find a hole in the controls to get to the camp and it was an odyssey that took us almost an hour, we had to get in the car to a child of those towns to guide us and he took us cross country, but even if the controls were very good we reached the camp. We did it in five minutes the return , as the roads were already open

Bungalow One: lovely homestay

Homestays are still quite a new concept, in North India at least. I was a little apprehensive before choosing this one, but all my doubts were laid to rest the moment I entered the house and was met warmly (with tea!) by the owners and their friendly dogs. Since this is an old, old house (almost 150 years old) I was amazed to find original features coexisting with restored and renovated portions of the house, specially the cute kitchen and the bathroom. Breakfast was nice, and the other meals I had (for which I had to pay extra) were at a different location in the house and garden every day! Nice place to try if you are tired of hotels... If you don't like dogs, then perhaps this is not the place for you.

The front garden is really nice and sunny, and it is possible to walk all around the property, and perhaps even pick home grown vegetables for lunch!

Hotel Tepso: Decent budget option

This was my second choice as my first choice (the Hotel Ramkrishna) was strangely full even though Allahabad isn't a big tourist destination. This hotel was fine. The guy on reception showed me a room that was just behind reception where I instantly said no before he opened the door for fear of the hectic goings-on of the reception area. He then took me through to the back where rooms opened out on a small courtyard. He opened the door on one where a guy was watching TV and who jumped up as we entered. I looked at the manager with a questionable look of "what's going on here?" and he said that he was just a hotel worker who then switched off the TV and walked out. The room was very tidy and clean with clean towels and sheets, a doublebed, bedside table, table, 2 chairs, small TV, A/C, ceiling fan, mirror, phone. The bathroom had a 24hr hotwater geyser tank. They served a small breakfast menu between 7-11.30am. There's a very good posh restaurant called the New Jade within the grounds. Good choice and quiet as it was set off the main road. My room cost Rs500.
