This boutique hotel is well done. It's comfortable and tasteful. But its ultimate selling point is the view from its rooftop where you can have dinner as you feast your eyes on the illuminated facade of the hillside fort just a stone's throw away! Perhaps the best location in town. Will make for a magnificent evening date! The dinner is a set affair with appetizers and main course and dessert. It's always Indian and good and they make sure you're fed well. However, I'd recommend guests to explore other places nearby to eat out at for a change.
The hotel has only 7 rooms. So it's a missed opportunity that the owner isn't warmer and less businesslike. Yes, he can be chatty and talks sense about how to make Bundi more tourist friendly, but he doesn't go out of his way at all to help out his guests. On two occasions I asked for him as his other staff weren't able to help me out with the local information I was seeking. On both occasions I was kept waiting and he didn't show up. On both occasions, I found him doing things that were in no way more urgent than attending to a guest! He also didn't sound genuinely interested in helping us make plans to visit the local sights. When a British guest's taxi driver called this hotel owner on his cell phone asking him in Hindi to communicate his message back to his British client, the owner simply handed his phone to the British guest to let him deal with his barely English speaking driver.
As you enter and walk out of the hotel you come to a street which overlooks a small patch of land that is quite filthy. Hope the owner pressures the authorities to clean the mess up.
