Beautiful setting and pool. Disappointing in all other aspects, except for a few helpful waiters/ porters. Disappointing for the amount charged. The RUDEST and most ARROGANT reception staff i have experienced in 20 years of travelling to India! I have returned to this hotel a number of times due to the beautiful pool and garden, but after my last visit... More

The Villa sits in all its splendor in lush gardens and grand entrance. Conveniently located from all attractions and shopping. It has 3 of the hottest boutiques on site. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with the rajputana style. Very secure and safe overall. Good size pool and Mandir on site with peacocks roaming the grounds. Food onsite was... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights as part of a personalised tour of Northern India. We had asked to stay in heritage hotels and were not disappointed by the hotel and grounds. Our room faced on to the upstairs terrace and was furnished with antiques, with a nice seating area. The bathroom was clean and spacious. Our... More

What a shame... This place could do so much better as it is a majestic place full of character and endearing quirkiness but is let down and ultimately does not deliver on the promise. It is expensive for what it offers; food quality and choice should be a lot better. There is free wifi and a good 'business area' where... More

Oh dear - what a let down this hotel was. It looked good on screen and some of the reviews painted a picture of old world service and charm. Where to start. The grumpiest receptionist, scowling porters for the luggage, and off we go up a never ending (or so it seemed) backs stone staircase to a beautiful terrace. Our... More

Narain niwas palace is surely a palace and mirror the grandeur of the bygone era in its architecture and decaying pieces of art and furniture. Since the hotel is not run by any renowned hotel chain, the lack of experience and technical knowledge reflects in the room set up. Lack of ventilation make standard room feel damp, the TV distance... More

This hotel as it is described is Heritage. The hotel is really old, and accommodations are what they are but all in all I can't review it badly. Reception is pretty bad, the guy at the desk is rude and not so kind. The service is really nice and very helpful. Breakfast is poor but good. The park is an... More

The hotel grounds and rooms were wonderful for our family, with young children able to roam between gardens, pool and peacocks. Individual wait staff were very attentive however reception staff were not particularly friendly or forthcoming with tour advice and tour prices were significantly marked up.

Narain Niwas Palace is a place we really wanted to go to bowled over by glowing ratings and pictures, so this new year break we decided to break our journey here before heading deeper into Rajasthan! The palace and the gardens are beautiful and the peacocks were the icing! Got to stay in one of the new rooms opening up... More

The good: the hotel definitely has charm and there is an excellent restaurant on the grounds (which has no association with the hotel) called Palladio. The less good: the bathroom felt a little dirty, the staff are not overwhelmingly friendly, and the wifi only works in the lobby.
