Situated inside the walled city of Bikaner is Bhanwar Niwas, the grandest of the famed havelis belonging to the Rampuria family. Bhanwar Niwas is a tribute and testimony to the skill and craftsmanship of the artisans of Bikaner. Completed in 1927 for Bhanwarlalji Rampuria, heir to a textile and real estate fortune, Bhanwar Niwas reflects the fashionable tastes of the 1920's, a taste for formal and well ordered luxury with modern conveniences of the time. The architecture of the haveli is a fascinating mix of Indian and European styles. On the ground floor are the public rooms including the Blue Drawing Room and the Little Drawing Room. For your palate we serve delectable vegetarian food in the magnificent Dining Hall.

Recently visited this beautiful & royal property in the heart of Bikaner for stay and I was amazed by it beauty. The lavish stay will definitely make your trip memorable for a lifetime. I really loved their rooms and the amenities they provide. The staff is really kind & helpful. They also organize a city heritage walk where you will get to know about the havelis of Bikaner. A highly recommended place from my end.

I loved this serene oasis in the middle of the bustling city with its lovely courtyard, magnificent rooms with character. The property is a harmonious marriage of Rajasthani and European decorative principles with pink/red sandstone, Italian marble, English tiles, Belgian lights, Bikaneri Usta art, and hand-painted walls and ceilings. There is also a beautiful little Jain temple that is older than the rest of the building. It seemed as if each bedroom was handpicked for us with care. My teenaged daughter got a pretty pink room with floral painting on the ceilings and a little four-poster bed. My sons got a ground-floor suite with twin beds set in an alcove and a charming sitting area. We got a large master suite with a large portrait of the founder of the "kotri", a large four-poster bed, and a sitting area. Each of the rooms had tiled and clean bathrooms with hot water. The food in the dining room was absolutely amazing and we loved the soup, appetizers such as cutlets and veggie quesadillas, mains and desserts. The courtyard was a great place to sit and order chai and snacks. We were in the perfect place to walk around outside to see the exteriors of the grand Rampuria havelis and then walk another 10 minutes to the embellished Kothari havelis. This was one of our favourite places in Rajasthan!

Bhanwar Niwas is one of the best places to visit where you can feel the culture and heritage of Bikaner. This place gives you an immersive experience of the culture. Every wall of Bhanwar Niwas tells a story about the artist and the thought process behind the art. The Staff is very informative and cooperative it gives you an insightful tour of the Haveli. A worth visiting place makes your trip memorable. I thank Mr Prasanthji the owner of the Bhanwar Niwas for giving me constant guidance regarding the Haveli and appreciate his continuous efforts in reviving the dying art of Bikaner which can be experienced in the haveli. it's a worth visiting place for Tourists, Researchers and Heritage lovers. To feel the royalty of the place one should definitely stay at Bhanwar Niwas it's worth it.

Everything about Bhanwar Niwas was great. Beautiful bedroom, tasty indian breakfast, nice staff and location inside the old walled city of Bikaner. Walking in the old city was a delightful experience. Sunset from terrace was nice. Would recommend room number 46 on the ground floor.

We shortlisted this Haveli after some research as it figures among the top heritage properties in Bikaner. Being on the heritage route of Bikaner it is close and within walking distance to Shri Laxminath Temple ,which is the oldest temple in the city built in the 14th century adobe to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi and also Bhandasar Jain Temple, one of the most popular temple of Bikaner dedicated to Sumatinath, the fifth Tirthankara of Jainism.The locals say that instead of mortar, the jain temple is made with the use of around 40,000 kg of ghee that trickles from the walls during summers. The Rampuria Haveli as it is known to locals is very well maintained and kept spic and span with rare artefacts kept intact. The food is good but on the expensive side as per Bikaner standard basically catering for only those residing there in. Being in the interior of the city one has to bear the approach to the Haveli which is not very different from a small village with cow dung and old overflowing open drains. But once inside, everything is in ship shape. For cheaper bargain ask Taxi and Tuk Tuk for Rampuria Haveli and not Bhanwar Niwas still they are adjacent. A good heritage experience with long corridors and quadrangle in the centre which is converted into a makeshift dining area with decent lighting. The location is actually a walking distance from the railway station about 1 km and not far from other sightseeing sites and markets in the city.

A beautifully restored Haveli with taste and history and very warm hosts Prashant and Minu. We stayed in room 46- very well appointed and spacious. The food is good and served in a gracious dining hall. The best choice for a stay in Bikaner.

This hotel is a nice Haveli but can by no means be called a hotel. Our first room was nicely decorated in authentic style but had a terrible smell of burned wood. After complaining we received another authentic room. The bathroom was more than a century old, completely outdated and had no hot water. The bed felt like sleeping on concrete. A very poor WiFi connection was only available in the courtyard. Breakfast was poor and hardly non of the staff spoke English.

At arrival, they had given our booked room to other customers, so we had to spend the night in a small, dirty room with our three little kids. During our roundtrip in Rajasthan, this was by far the worst place ever, compared to other hotels: breakfast really simple and not inviting, centre of Bikaner is not a nice place to walk around, and staff that if you are lucky hasn't given away the room you booked 3 months in advance. Try your luck at Bhanwar Niwas or take a decent hotel :-) There are many in Bikaner.

Palace in the old city of bikaner. One might not like the drive to the hotel but once you reach there and see the beautiful hotel hidden in the streets of old city. The entrance is cozy, but once you are inside the chawk, its totally different view. Every room has its own beauty, the central courtyard is the attraction of the hotel. The art work, Colours, painting and props used at different location of hotels is unbeatable. Food is OK, but few things can be avoided to experience the beauty of the place. I met the owners, they have the class of taste and have expressed same in maintaining the hotel.
