Excellent place to stay on the roof terrace for great food and a fresh made cold drink. I returned several times to relax from the desert heat. I also enjoyed the talks with the owners and their additional efforts to support local farming and school education projects. Support their work by volunteering! 5star rating!

Very charming rooftop, sitting on the floor or table, nice music and probably one of the best indian cooks in the fort, Meghraj, Banna. What else coud you ask for? If looking for a place to eat, a nice choice within the walls.

I had twice dinner in this hotel and always followed the recommandation if Raghus. If you want some nice food on a rooftop restaurant in the heart of the old town, I recomnend this restaurant. They also have hotelrooms, which seams to be nice (but I did not stay in the hotel).

Excellent choice inside the fort for budget solo travellers. Rooms are cheap, & the restaurant is a great place to hang out and meet fellow travellers. The guys who run the place are also very friendly and treat u like family.
