I rated this hotel excellent for the experience in this 17th century grandeur. Although not restored in comparison to the other heritage hotels around Rajasthan, the cracking old paint and the dusty gate gives it a sense of old school charm. Its like reading an old book :)
The room(ground floor) we stayed in was huge and the bathroom was even bigger. Maybe one of the biggest bathroom hotel I might have stayed in. My simple guess is, obviou5ly, the fort wasn't built keeping the future room designs in mind.
Its away from the hustle and is located in a small art town. Walking around the property on a cold winter night is a fun spooky experience. Recommended if your not looking for a luxury-bang of the buck heritage hotel, but for its allure for an era gone by.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Roopangarh Fort is a vast war Fort and has been over 350 years in the making. It has been painstakingly restored and renovated as a heritage hotel, especially for those who enjoy a sense of history and seek a story from the silent walls. Surprisingly large guest rooms, four poster beds, colonial Indian furniture, open log fires in winter all assure you of a warm welcome. Combined atmosphere of splendid views from the massive terrace and magical evenings under the clear sky with piercing desert music is intoxicating. Add to this modern day facilities and your holiday is truly memorable. ... more less
