Arriving by bus, you’ll probably be dropped off at one of the private company offices on LN Bari Road, or at the state bus stand at Krishna Nagar. The tourist office (Mon–Sat 10am–5pm, Sun 3–5pm; t 0381/222 5930) is in a wing of the palace. There are several ATMs. Agartala has a good selection of hotels, including Welcome Palace, HGB Road (t 0381/238 4940; Rs1201–2000); Ambar, SD Barman Sarani (t 0381/222 3587; Rs301–500); and Rajdhani, BK Road (t 0381/222 3387; Rs301–2000). Choices for eating are more limited: try Abhishek on Durga Bari Road or Ambar, next to the hotel of the same name.
