a hotel which is highly avoidable. except for the food there was nothing worth the stay. promises made were promises broken. out of the town area accessibility was a big problem getting local conveyance from the hotel was a big problem. no eating joints within walking distance.

Hotel is in Art Deco style. Built in the 1949's by the Maharaja. Hotel is very sad and extremely tired looking. A long way out of the town. Staff were attentive. Breakfast was good. Rooms furnished in Art Deco style. Furniture probably dates from the 49's too. Didn't enjoy the deco. No hot water too.

It was unexpectedly pleasant and peaceful stay. Loved everything about this hotel, be it the location, room or the food. I think it was value for money and would like to visit again. Staff had smiling faces all the time and was very helpful

A very charming stay in this small hotel that really was like a step back in time. It's a little frayed around the edges as it retains original furniture and decor but very sweet atmosphere and wonderful old school service.

We were committed to this hotel as part of our Intrepid / Peregrine tour of Rajasthan, so I have no idea how much it costs or the value. We rolled in here late in the afternoon and then left promptly the next morning, so our stay was quick. However, upon driving into the secluded park-like grounds and the very nice... More

About 25 mins from the railway station and 20 mins from the bus station. It's a very odd building ,locked in the 1930s in a classical Art Deco style, and not updated since, which gives it its charm. We had a huge suite type room on the top floor which was very nice at a budget price of 3500 a... More

one of the many places built by erstwhile Maharaja of bikaner, this 12 room hotel is situated near the university area. The staff here are amazingly hospitable. The hotel itself is managed very professionally by HRH Hotels. The room service and restruant is expensive but excellent. The hotel has lot of green lawns to make the overall stay memorable.

We stayed in the Karni Bhawan Palace on the new year's evening. The hotel offered us to take to Ganjner Palace for the new year celebrations but we wanted to spend quality family time and decided to stay in the hotel. We were the only guests as other guests had gone to Gajner. Maybe that was one reason - we... More

We arrived at Karni Bhawan after eight hours on out motorcycles. We were welcomed with exceptional service and the largest suite ever. The rooms are sparkly clean with basic amenities. The service is good, fast and very friendly. We had non-veg (chicken) snacks and dinner in the hotel restaurant. We literally licked out fingers! Well worth a stay!
