We stayed in the hotel surja for two nights. We were in a lovely big room with lots of space and a cute balcony which we were very happy with. We booked the camel trek with the hotel which was very reasonably priced and we loved trekking on the camels in the desert. Unfortunately I became suddenly ill while on... More

I cannot believe anyone would write anything negative about this awesome motel. Value for money I don't believe it could be beaten. The food was great the rooms aged but clean enough and the staff very helpful. The view from this motel perched high up on the fort wall was just a world class view and experience. Our view out...

We stayed here for 3 nights in March of 2014. The hotel is in a great location, right on the fort wall overlooking the city down below. It's a very short (2 minute) walk from the main square inside the fort, but down at the end of a street so things stay quiet - no autorickshaws or motorbikes. Others strongly... More

Where do I start? We have been here 3 days and don't want to leave. Best room is the Maharajah Room which faces the city and had a cute little balcony for one! The room is large as is the bathroom which was super clean! I was sick with Delhi Belly when I arrived and I couldn't have been more... More

First of all, be sure you go to the right hotel! There is a rather different place next door called The Surya. The Surja is run by Raj and Yogi and could not be more delightful. The rooms are clean and spacious, the food is good and the terrace is a real delight with fantastic views over the town and... More

We stayed In the cheaper rooms that look out on the the courtyard. Paid 500R a night which seemed pretty reasonable for what we received. A fairly large room, en suite, hot water. The room wasn't anything to write home about but had a nice balcony and comfortable bed, clean sheets etc. Now to our only real complaint which was... More

As others have said, Raj with his warmth and hospitality makes the hotel very special. He helped me track down an old friend who I hadn't seen for some 15 years. The room was good and befitted the setting within the fort, the views from the balcony are amazing, and the rooftop restaurant great for breakfast or dinner. Highly recommended!!

Unfortunately the photos are not representative of the rooms. The bathroom in our room was pretty filthy and there was no water available (hot or cold) when we arrived. A boy who looked about 10 was seemingly the only staff member available so we decided to leave and move to another hotel. You would need to be used to very... More

Superb! This was the best place in its class. Yogi who runs the place is very hands on and was super helpful. He picked me up below with a rickshaw to take me to the hotel as my car could'nt get up to the fort. The breakfast was yummy - Chocolate banana crepe-and muesli in the terrace overlooking the town...
