Amazing gardens. They we're very efficient when asked for a taxi at 6am
Wifi wasn't good in the rooms. The restaurant was expensive for the quality, about 400 rupees per dish, although It had live music outside. The swimming pool was closed in June
Very beautifull place. Really palace. Territorry is veru beatifull. Staff is affable and friendly. Food is good.
Impossible to eat in the restaurant through menus durng the day. Only in fixed hours. In other time only snaks.
a luxurious and spacious hotel with all the trimmings. spacious room, extra firm indian-style bed, marble bathroom with a real bath tub (rare in india), lovely tiered courtyards and grounds with a (shallow, algae filled) swimming pool, a childrens' playground, a brilliant view of the cenotaph complex down by the river, a gated community of wealth on a back street (therefore very quiet). musicians play classical music in the central courtyard during dinner, the food is great, the staff is obsequious, you can get a gin and tonic and sit on the verandah just like back in the days of the british raj, if your goal is to relive the opulent colonial days
wifi does not work in the rooms, only near the front desk, which was close to our room since they put us right next to the kitchen. hot water in the bathroom was not working during the short hours when there is hot water, and the toilet ceased to function during the night. we were too tired to mention this until our pre-breakfast walk, and on our return it was all magically working again, but too late for us to take baths. this is a corporate hotel, which caters to tourbuses and dozens of german and british and chinese tourists at a time. only wealthy indians visit here, for functions and wedding parties or business gatherings. we were unaware of this at the time of booking, or would have chosen the similar-rated but more classical hotel situated in the middle of the fort complex, which we visited for coffee the next day. the musicians are enthusiastic amateurs, and none of the tourists seemed to notice this, but we're fans of indian classical music and were rather bemused. they stopped playing when the indian guests gathered for their function, incidentally. overalll, this is a great place if you wanted to be treated like ruling british functionaries during the glorious colonial days, but if you're looking for anything resembling indian culture or style, this is a bit over the top. we did not relish all the bored westerners getting drunk on the verandah while waiting for dinner.
Three beds in super delux room
View from the window
Food. Hot water supply in bathroom.
