I was planning to stay at Dholavira Toran resort in February 2017. But surprisingly the travel agent tells me that it is booked. He is suggesting to stay in Gandhidham. Is there any other option at Dholavira itself ? I'm aware that the accommodations are pretty basic in Dholavira but I am not looking for comfort.
I have heard about a Government guest house at Dholavira but can't seem to find any details.

We'd be travelling from Eco Camp LRK at Surendranagar ( fairly long drive) and would be leaving for Dhordo at GRK the day after ( short drive).

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Supra,
We visited Dholavira back in 2007 so my this information is rather out-dated.
At that time there was no accommodation in Dholavira, the only hotel was not finished.
We spend the night in Radhanpur, a dusty town where we had a basic hotel.
It was about 4 hours driving from Dholavira. The 4-lane road from Radhanpur to Gandidham was not ready, now it will be somewhat faster.

I found Dholavira very impressive but you can explore it in 2 to 3 hours.

@vonkla : Thanks very much for your reply. I have read about the hotel in TripAdvisor so I guess they do exist physically now. I understand the site is not huge but I just don't want to do two long drives in one day. I have also read star gazing is fantastic there in the night so that is another attraction of staying there.
I have got the phone number of a renowned local guide called Jaimal from web, so planning to give him a ring tomorrow.
Best wishes
