I was disappointed in this seemingly grand palace. The rooms were gigantic but very tired and faded, and rather scruffy furnishings. As far as I could see none had any windows, being in the former harem female quarters,thus rendering the rooms dark and claustrophobic despite their immense size. The hotel had no outside amenities other than a vast lawn in front, used for weddings etc and a pool teeming with pigeons and none too clean. Only two sunbeds for such a vast edifice - why ?
The food was ok but expensive, accompanied in the evening by some very gifted musicians and dancers - a nice touch.
Vast courtyards upstairs but with no views or terrace furniture. Old room service dishes, left behind pillars etc....
Definitely in need of a serious update and tighter management.

Laxmi Niwas is the former palace of the royal family of Bikaner. The entire royal property is split into 3 parts - Lalgarh, Laxmi Niwas and the private residence of the king. Both Lalgarh and Laxmi Niwas are now being used as heritage hotels / marriage resorts.

We stayed at Laxmi Niwas for 2 nights in early November for a wedding in the family. The place will wow you with its architecture, grandiose rooms and the truly royal vibes. Rooms are on the expensive side but more than worth it. The place was not designed for hotel rooms to start with so you might find some of the room locations slightly odd and the shapes of the rooms inside maybe weird. But once inside the room, you will not regret shelling out the extra bucks.

Special shout out for Room 104 - which we used for the Groom. The room is huge - has its own dining table with antique cutlery, a royal swing and opens out to the swimming pool. Some room amenities might feel dated but then I guess it is difficult to maintain such huge heritage properties, more so considering the fact that you don't want to change too much of the interiors.

Some of the internal and external carvings, hand paintings and decor are to die for. The front lawns are big enough to host a wedding with gathering upwards of 4-5000. The main courtyard is fantastic for smaller events. The rooms starting with 400 are on the terrace and you get a good sighting of entire Bikaner from there. Apart from the view, the cool breeze makes the terrace an ideal place for an early morning cuppa or a late nighter.

Absolutely loved the place. And would definitely want to return for a more private and relaxed visit sooner than later.

The most well maintained and managed heritage hotel in Bikaner.
We came in here for lunch for three consequential days as the food was mind blowing. Chéf Nandlal spoke to us and after understanding what sort of food and spice level we prefer, he simply created marvels that came out of his kitchen.
From items such as Lal Maas to Mutton Khas Kebabs to Kair Sangri everything was a joy to taste and to eat.
The extensive grounds and reception areas as well as pool and other facilities were spotless and well managed. The flapping of pigeons wings and wind rustling in the trees and plants were the only noise one could here for a long time.
Every time I think of Bikaner, I think about the lunches I had here which went into hours.

Visited the property with a group of friends and was very satisfied with everything. The property is well maintained and has the perfect mix or royal heritage and modern luxuries. Perfect getaway from Delhi for a weekend dedicated to relaxing by the pool, and the open spaces of the hotel. Staff and service was upto the mark as well. Would stay again!
