More of a guesthouse/homestay than a hotel, the live in owner was friendly but very uptight (no staying out late, no alcohol or non-veg on the premises, etc). The discounted room rate was cheap (Rs 600 for a double with AC) but this may have been due to the hotel having been empty for 6 days prior to our arrival... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel (more of a guest house) is run by an honest and very unpushy couple, feels very homely, we often sat and drank chia (free) with the couple who run it. Mrs Ballani cooked us a delicious supper for a 120 rupees for the both if us. A characterful, peaceful place. Good location right... More

For 600 rupees a night for double AC this was perfect - it was clean, comfortable, and free from bugs. The location was great as well, it was just down a side street off the main chowk so it's quiet but not too out of the way. Great alternative to staying inside the fort (try and avoid, the place is... More

Good value but uncomfortable beds. Owners are very nice and helpful. When they offer you breakfast, realize that it will appear on your bill. It seemed like it was complimentary, but it wasn't. -Good location -Free wifi in lobby -Helpful with onward travel arrangements, and safaris -Strictly no alcohol on the premises

We stayed at Hotel Swastika for 3 nights. We paid 400 Rupees for a double with bathroom in high season. The room was nice and clean, but the mattress of the bed was very hard. We woke up several times at night with painful bones. We had breakfast (toast with butter and jam, bananas and lemon tea) at the hotel... More

for 250 you get a fan room. no toilet paper, soap, or wifi. one can find similar rooms for 150 rupee just 5 mins from there, outside the walls. when raining, the hotel gets wet all over as it is mostly in the open air.

We took our room on the first floor as we were told it was cooler and easier to sleep than the upstairs. Yes, our room was cooler, but it was difficult to sleep. Directly outside our window/balcony was a frequently visited shrine (people praying and ringing bells that started around 5am) and cows tied to the shrine, mooing. Services that... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a room which cost 400Rs per night - the cheapest of the guest houses we visited. The room was comfortable, bright, clean with hot water always available. The owner was very helpful in suggesting local places to eat, although he does provide meals if you wish. He also took us on a tour... More

Swastika is a super clean guesthouse with great value for money. We stayed two nights in their double room with attached bathroom and enjoyed the view from our window seat. They also have a great triple room with attached bath and balcony. All services available at reasonable rates.
