“Beautiful building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Laxmi Niwas appears to suffer from a proliferation of one night stays. Much in the hotel seems to have this in mind. What could be a fantastic palace hotel is instead an open storage area with cleaning regimes gone walkabout, as apparently, had the manager.
Everything here, rooms, lobby, restaurant, public areas, bathrooms, whilst all OK they would benefit from some elbow grease.
Bonus was free wi-fi in the lobby.
Niwas is a beautiful old building set in nice grounds but with fountains that did not work and electrical cabling scattered about. The hotel side of it is very ordinary but I would recommend a stay here (one night) to experience the building and see what once might have been.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

We were in Bikaner in March, 2012.

We were not staying at The Laxmi Niwas Palace Hotel (too expensive!) but were told that we could attend the cultural evening if we made a reservation for dinner.

Dinner begins at 7.30pm (in the courtyard inside the palace). The setting is beautiful and I would highly recommend this place for dinner.

This was our first visit to India and for 15 days we drive thru Rajasthan and Deli. I can not say Bikaner as a lot to offer (the Rat Temple is a must) but the hotel is by itself a cultural monument. This was perhaps the best hotel we have stay until now. The property is huge and you can walk in the gardens without being hassled. The rooms are amazingly big and well decorated. You can use the inside restaurant or the outside tables for some perfect Indian cuisine and some traditional dances. Congratulations for the amazing hotel, we sure feel like kings.

We really loved this place. The staff are so nice, and seem genuinely happy when you arrive, and we felt so welcomed. They even upgraded us to a suite. This is in a real palace and its a beautiful builiding. Reccomend to go up to the roof top to have a look is very beautiful
The rooms are really spacious. This hotel is a traditional hotel not a modernized polished palace. We loved our stay here.
Recommend also eating at their restaurant as the food is very good.
Only down thing was that their swimming pool was closed, but one could walk to the neighbor palace to pay to use their indoor swimming pool.

When we stayed at laxmi there was even a wedding there which was so nice to see. It was our first time to see an indian wedding.

If taking a rickshaw to the railways sation and you have suitcases be sure to order one with a luggage carrier on top.
