Definitely worth a stay just for the traditional Indian art and decoration in the beautiful courtyard, lobby, and pool area. The tradeoff though was that my room was stuffy and musty; and while the hotel is itself beautiful, it is in the middle of a not particularly inviting halal slaughterhouse district of Jaipur. Restaurant's food is so-so -- you can... More

This is a really nice hotel. If you are a history lover after entering this hotel it will look like you have gone into old times. There hospitality is also very good, and in fact I have not seen such type of hospitality even by good and renowned five star hotels. In fact in my opinion its hospitality is good... More

This place is full of character and the rooms are spacious and interesting with four poster beds and some unique features and decor, yes parts are dated and may look tired or not work too efficiently but if you want a corporate hotel experience why are you staying here and not at a chain or modern venue? If you like... More

Had a romantic weekend there. Good facilities provided. Nice ambience and interiors. Delicious food served there. Nearby to the lovely places to visit. Had a memorable experience to cherish forever. I would suggest everyone to visit Jaipur. And looking forward to have another visit here.

. Background: As part of a 15-day escorted tour of Northern India, our group stayed at this converted "haveli" in Jaipur. (The word "haveli" is the term used for a private mansion in India and Pakistan, usually one with some historical and architectural significance.) Indeed, the Hotel Bissau Palace is -- and still is -- the private residence of the... More

A converted haveli that makes a lovely hotel full of character. The staff is very old world, the decor is wonderful - and being refreshed by local artists - and the common areas are full of artifacts. The evening entertainment on sitar and tabla was wonderful. I enjoyed the music lessons. Our room was spacious, but quite basic. Access to... More

The positives: stunning restaurant and lobby. Murals adorn the walls and peacocks wander in. The rooms are all heritage and you feel like you've gone back in time. The pool area is pleasant. The negatives: the room walls are marked and the airconditioning and tv didn't work. Paint is peeling. However, I still loved staying here simply for the romantic... More

This converted haveli is still run by the descendants of the royal family - and they still stay here in a section that is off-bounds. I stayed there with my wife, 6-year old son, and retired parents for 2 nights, and I have mixed feelings about this place. On the plus side is the old-world charm of the rooms and... More

The hotel is a converted old haveli near one of the gates to old town Jaipur, and is still run by the descendants of the royal family that used to rule from there. The building itself is beautiful. The lobby and entrance have period furniture and photos on the wall - decoration is amazing. All the walls of the restaurant... More
