Excellent location, good food, nice and courteous staff, well managed by the GM. Experience royal living in the palace hotel, rooms are cosy and comfortable, very convenient since all the temples and sound & light show are right in the vicinity.

Sheesh Mahal sure has to be the gem in MP tourism's rooster. Amazing location. It surely can't get too better than this. Sheesh Mahal is and annex to the Jahangir Mahal and is practically sandwiched between the Jahangir Mahal and the Raja Mahal. One literally becomes part of the history staying at this place. The morning walks through the ruins... More

We had booked the maharaja as well as the maharani suite for 2 nights. It's the best place to enjoy the fort as well as the light and sound show as the hotel is within the fort premises. The hotel will also arrange passes for light and sound show as well as a guide for the fort. The maharani suite... More

we booked the Maharani suite, overlooking the Palace. What an amazing place at dawn, looking out of the windows as the colours of the stone walls changed with the light! A government run hotel, so very good value. The service and food were fine, and the room fit for a Maharani!

Based on TA reviews, we booked the Maharaja suite here for one night. First the good bits: The room itself is huge and very eclectically decorated with furniture and antiques (mostly from the 20th century). The bathroom is also huge and rather oddly decorated with an original marble bathtub (only usable as a shower though - it would take hours... More

The feeling of staying in a Palace hotel once used by Mughal Emperor Jahangir... gives me goosebumps! Its an awesome hotel with the most spectacular view of the Jahangir Palace. I stayed there for 2 days with my wife and tariff for a double room was Rs. 2700 including taxes. Food was little expensive but actually it is worth spending... More

This is an interesting property in a great location with a wonderful view. If it was managed by, say, Neemrana, it could be a great hotel. Instead it is managed by the government. It is clear that there are some inalienable functions of government; what is not clear is that providing hotels is among them. A lethal combination of low... More
