Roopangarh Fort
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Kishangarh
Reviewed 23 January 2017

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.

Compared to most of the forts we visited in Rajasthan, this was not very well renovated. The Fort has a wonderful history, but has not been looked after well. We were sad to see that renovations were more commercial than in trying to bring the property back to the state of its former glory. The staff were not very friendly and the food was very average......maybe we caught them at a bad time! Overall, it was not a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Very steep stairs to the rooms and no elevators, so definitely not suitable for the elderly or disab...

Soggiorno particolare e caratteristico in una vera residenza maharaja. Posto un po' decadente ma pulito e con uno staff semplice e molto accogliente. Ottima cena e colazione. Bella location. Merita la deviazione.

We are very much satisfied with our stay at roopangarh fort. The place is really fascinating. We were almost alone, had a very big and beautiful room, with fans and air conditioning. The staff was at our disposal, very kind and welcoming. Dinner outside in the light of moon and candles was very good and breakfast excellent. Recommended.

Faded grandeur but a ridiculously interesting and charming place. This 17th century fortress has an 18th century palace attached, which has been turned into a hotel.
The manager was fantastic and took us out in his car to see local sights and we walked around the small town that nestles at the foot of the fort.
The hotel felt like a throwback to a different era - we sat out on the enormous terrace, looking at the stars and eating ok-ish food. It wasn't haute-cuisine by any stretch of the imagination , but it was enjoyable nonetheless, and the incredible ambience more than made up for what the food may have lacked.
The charming and polite staff made the stay so enjoyable for us - the service was attentive in a really nice low key way. Not pushy or fawning at all.

It was great - fantastic value and enormous, quiet comfortable room. Get the manager to arrange a jeep trip out to the salt lakes- it was fabulous. Also vist the Barefoot Colony, which is a local charitable cooperative set up to stimulate the handicraft industry.

So if you fancy a quirky and relaxing time, outside of the cities, then visit Roopangarh Fort. It was great.

Room Tip: Rooms are massive - don't get the one next to the kitchen though !
