It was a nice stay. The owner and staff was supportive & accommodated the requests to the best of their capacity. I did find the owner helpful. The food was great too. However, could have improved on hygiene & cleanliness. Thanks
Bundi is a slightly off the beaten track destination in Rajasthan. I planned my trip out of curiosity, having read the famous 'Nakalgarh' poem by Tagore. 2.5 hours drive through exquisitely smooth state highway from Ranthambhore, we were pleasantly surprised too find that Bundi is a bustling town with a majestic fort towering over it. Ishwari Niwas Palace is a residence of a section of the royal family, converted into a hotel. It is situated in Civil lines area, just opposite the circuit house. The property is not too big, it lacks large lawns or gardens. But the rooms are nice and cosy, each with beautiful interiors. However, maybe electric kettles and small refrigerators might add to the utility factor. Some of the rooms lack ventilation but that is understandable as it has been a residence earlier. We happened to be the only tourists there so did receive a royal treatment, including a personalised bonfire on 31st December night! One must mention the excellent food, prepared on order, specially the traditional Lal Maas. The hospitality is top class, even the very charming owner of the place Vansh Vardhan Singh personally ensures comfort of the guests. …
A lovely setting and well maintained. Good and helpful service. Offered heaters for our rooms as it was quite cold. There was hot water, a large bathroom and bucket/jug provided in case the shower power was not enough. Like another reviewer our room was close to reception and was dark. We were only there one night but if there for longer they clearly have different rooms.
Totally self-contained bedroom, bathroom, extensive grounds well tended, maintained, and cleaned. A number of the staff also act as guides to the old fort, the sultans place and trips outside of the city. Lovely breakfast and can get service any time of the day or night. Always felt safe and secure for the 2 weeks we were there. Walk to the old town and through the stone gate and there you will see the ancient city which is amazing. There are hundreds of sellers of anything and everything you could imagine that is of India and that's before you walk through the gate. Once inside the narrow streets, colourful clothes, and building are simply incredible. Try the chia - you will love it.
A beautiful heritage hotel. Very nice rooms, though I would have liked a light by the bed. All very clean. An excellent shower - quite unusual in India! The food was very good and nicely served in an upstairs restaurant. Free wif-fi but not available in all the rooms, but good in the public areas. It also has a very nice pool.
A homely heritage place to stay, the best place to stay in Bundi town. It’s a heritage building with 32 well appointed rooms ans a homely feel. Rooms are spacious. The place is centrally located at a walking distance from the Bundi palace and fort and other attractions of the town. Staff is friendly and food is freshly made.
We were quite taken by surprise with this hotel, a rather lovely heritage style hotel set around some nice gardens. Its located just a short distance from the city centre but sufficiently out of the mainstream to offer a haven of peace away from the clamour of the town. Food was good, buffet style dinner, as we were travelling with a small tour group. The staff were very helpful and friendly and one of the staff members doubled up as our local guide for the old palace and market area. There is a very famous Chai shop in the old town. Dont miss it! Rooms were delightful, very individual. Happy to return if the opportunity arises!
We had a room right before the main reception which seemed to be average compared to others in my group who stayed in the main courtyard. The wifi only works in the reception and even then it did not work well, if at all. The bed was uncomfortable and sheets were very rough. I only stayed one night and though my room was average, the grounds are beautiful. Our visit to Bundi Palace and local walk through the village town was very enjoyable.
Heritage hotel in the centre of Bhundi. Walking distance to the old market, step wells and the palace which is currently derelict but still worth seeing. Food wasn’t the greatest but everything else was good.
Touring Rajasthan, we stayed here for 2 nights. A lovely place to stay, staff are lovely, food is good, with a variety of choices. rooms clean and comfy. Is is good for the National park which we visited while we were here. Rooms have Air con.
