WelcomHeritage Bassi Fort Palace
Ranked #5 of 17 Chittaurgarh B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2012

I stayed there on the 10th and 11th of july 2012. The hotel in an essence is a must have experience.
USP :
#1. Owner Sticks around hotel and stays in the premises.
#2. The place has a unique charm about it, not old world, not home run, its something else, a true Indian village kind of a feel
#3. The food - The don't have a 24hrs kitchen - fixed timings and meals, but its fresh out of the fields, you ask them what is available and what they should cook, and how you want your food, you get it perfectly that way. Authentic home cooked Indian food.
#4. The ambiance and the view from the place is amazing
#5. Floating bar in the pool, it has to be experienced from that place only.

Downsides :
#1: The rooms are clean - but don't expect them to be spotless
#2 : the AC is working - but thats about it, dont expect it to chill your room up, all it does is to make it comfortable
#3 : the staff is very friendly, and do things the way you want, but they are not trained, i still feel that they could do with a bit of formal training.
#4. There is not much you can do unless you do have a taxi/car there with you, and know all the routes around.
#5. The place is mosquitoes free but i could see a lizard or two.

Room Tip: I stayed in thier grand suite - its huge - i would suggest to go for something smaller as thier AC...

We stayed 3 days at the Bassi Fort in October 2011. We drove in from Kanpur via Shivpuri and Kota through one of the nicest highways (except the part around Kota, where a massive bridge is under construction and you need to take a detour through the city) that I have experienced. The traffic density is very low, the highway is huge and the drive is simply divine.Bassi fort is rather difficult to locate as there are no signs on the highway. It is close to the highway but the approach is through a very narrow alley inside the Bassi village. The fort is not large and amenities are shoddy. Though all rooms do have air-conditioning and basic amenities that you expect, we had to change rooms twice as something or the other was not working. Electrical wiring and plumbing are especially primitive. The hotel is under-staffed and though it was not crowded at the time we went, the staff seemed stretched. On the positive side, the owners live in the same premises and are attentive to your complaints. The food served in the hotel is excellent authentic local fare. The fort has a detached air about it and I managed to while away hours in the courtyard doing nothing. You can climb up the uninhabited hills behind the property and the views from the top are wonderful.
They are constructing a swimming pool and bar behind the hotel. At the time we visited, the pool was almost complete.
Of course, the place to visit from Bassi is Chittorgarh, which is a larger town than we had imagined. But we also enjoyed a short (but difficult) drive to Nagri village which is the ancient Madhyamika that was a flourishing town in the Mauryan times and was beseiged by the Greeks. Not much exists now and unless you are a history buff you may not find the difficult drive (my GPS did not have the place correctly marked) worth it. However, if you are, do try to visit at least the temple which is being used since many thousand years. On the whole, it is an interesting property in a part of rajasthan that is not teeming with tourists and manages to retain most of its charms.

Room Tip: Check the toilets, air conditioning and the electrical switches before you choose a room. They allow...

Hotel is in Bassi and not in Chittorgarh as many links seem to indicate. Bassi is about 20 km away from Chittorgarh, direction Kota. In Bassi the driver need to watch out for the signs of the hotel carefully. It is difficult to find.
The Hotel is not in the old palace. It is a newer development on the side. Rooms are very colorful and bathrooms are typical Indian Standard.
Personnel has all intentions to deliver the best service as possible. But the possibilities are limited.
Food was good Indian standard.
It is a good hotel compared to all others in the area. Second only to Fort Bijaipur.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Some are bigger than others but that does not make a big difference.

During March 2011 we had a business trip to one of Cement Factories at Chittaurgarh. We were a group of four including a foreigner. It was the first time for any of us to Visit Chittaurgarh so weren't really aware of the hotels in the city or nearby. Also the office Admin couldn't help much as Chittor is not place which is visited by many from my company.
After doing some Google search we found this place as it is marketed by ITC Welcome group.
Overall it located around 40kms from the Chittaurgarh (our work location) and is on a foothill in Bassi Village.
As you enter Bassi village, it is a typical village scene in India and for a moment you where we have landed up? But As you enter the hotel premises, you get a better feeling.
This hotel is an old family palace, a part of which is converted in to a hotel. People stay in other parts of the palace and structures are may be having their last breaths,
However the part which is been converted into the hotel is kind of refurbished. The reception, staff were very courteous. Now coming to the rooms, if you are looking at an experience of staying in a 200 year old property, it is not the full experience. As the old(actually 200 year old) part of the rooms are just the living area and the actual bedrooms are an extension of the old structure which is built recently with RCC walls and slab. The owners have tried hard to give the newly constructed rooms a heritage feeling with wide windows or 'Jharokas' and have painted the rooms in traditional Rajasthani culture.
Overall the rooms are quite big the cleanliness is above expectations.
Most amazing part of the stay was the food which is served in an open air garden.
The food quality was really good for dinner as well for breakfast. One of the important points is they serve alcohol til late night which infact is bonus in Rajasthan where you find it tough to get alcohol post 8pm.
The owner of the property is a retired defense professional and if you are lucky enough, you will have a drink together listening to the owner and history of the palace.
We stayed for three nights and due to our work schedules could not spend much time in the hotel but once we returned before 6pm to the hotel and were welcomed by a bunch of peacocks in the garden and this was an unforgettable experience. Let alone the foreigner with us, we being born and brought up in urban areas, it is delightful sight to walk into your home and are welcomed by such beatiful birds in their natural habitat.

Overall, the hotel really nice and value for money and would like to surely return to this hotel with friends and family.

Room Tip: Ask for Ratan Mahal
