“A nice property for family holidays...”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

We stayed at this hotel in October 2011, just before Diwali. It is a very good property just next to Fort Rajwada. You can either stay in rooms in the sprawling campus or if you are more adventurous, you can opt to stay in the swiss tents in the adjoining campus. The hotel staff goes out of the way to make you comfortable. The manager of the hotel personally meets all guests and asks them to contact him directly in case any help is required (which was not required at all).

The best thing about this property is the haveli style architechture and the open courtyard style design. The swimming pool is beautiful, though a bit short for serious swimmers but great for kids and those who want to relax. The sunset view is great from the terrace. Breakfast is reasonable, but would have loved some south Indian options. You have the option of dining on the poolside and enjoy the view of the Golden Fort (though at quite a distance). The staff helps you with everything - including helping you chart out your itinerary for the day to make best possible use of time.

Rooms are clean, well lit and have all amenities that you would normally look for in a 4 star hotel. Bathrooms are also big with all basic amenities (including a fan!). However, if you are travelling with kids and need an extra bed, the room may feel a bit cramped.

You can play carrom (yes, I played carrom after many years with my kids and we really enjoyed a lot!) or chess or just relax on the jhula or grab a cup of tea and view the setting sun from the sprawling terrace. All in all, we loved the stay and would certainly recommend the hotel to families taking vacations.

Our stay during the Diwali holidays was very pleasant! Even in the rush of the Diwali crowd, the warmth was beyond expectations! The rooms were comfortable, but the food seemed to be targeting the western world, was bland, and lacked the punch. Overall, recommended for visitors....

Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2011 with friends. Bargain price as it was low season, which also meant we and the place virtually to ourselves. Front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished. The pool was great and had a wonderful view towards the Fort. The hotel restaurant was a bit of a disappointment. Very stark lighting and rather unhelpful staff. Overall I'd recommend though.

The hotel is 5 min. away from the Railway station. The hotel has an excellent architecture and a very courteous, supportive and prompt staff. The room was clean with king size bed. The toilet and attach bath had proper amenities and 24 hr. hot and cold water supply. The swimming pool was neat and clean with the city view in front. The hotel's architecture was very ethnic and smelled Rajasthan all around. Room service and laundry was also excellent!
The only improvement area was food which lacked a bit of Rajasthan taste.
City and fort was near the hotel, just about 10 min. We took a cab to sam sand dunes from the hotel for Rs.800 (to and fro)

Room Tip: All the Rooms have great view, since you get to see the outer beauty which is different but yet uniq...
