My title says it all. We stayed there for the location so we could walk a few steps to the light and sound show (fantastic, not to miss the Hindi version). We stayed in the Maharani suite which was large. The bathroom was huge. It might be nicer with a little bit of renovation. One could see the other monuments... More

It's definitely worth it. Room 4 is great, clean and fresh. Couldn't be better located than here, as the hotel is part of the palace. Restaurant is quite average though. Prices are ok, staff is kind and helpful. We planned to stay here for one night and we ended up spending three nights.

Our explorations to the Orchha fort led us to the Sheesh Mahal which is a Fort Hotel. Magnificent and opulent. Live life in the hotel King size. You get to watch the light and sound show from the room window. Great restaurant which serves mouth watering delicacies. There are just 6-8 rooms so book in advance if u wish to... More

Hotel Sheesh Mahal run by M P Toursim used to be a guesthouse of the English officers. It is situated in the heart of the palace complex - infact,it is bang in between the two palaces - the jehangir mahal and the raj mahal. The advantage of the location is that you can stroll in these palaces at any time... More

This is a beautiful heritage property run (?) by the Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation and sadly mismanaged. The property is located on a small hillock within the confines of an fort. The surroundings, especially the old ruins of various officials of the king's court are magnificent. Totally enjoy this property, especially if you happen to visit it during the... More

One needs to climb around 15 steps to reach the room. The best thing about the place was its... More

It is a meeting with the history. Orchha is a paradise for tourist. It is a sacred place of palaces and temples. Sheesh mahal is an artistic palace hotel. Nice service. Very tasty food. Royal stay. If u r going to orchha ensure ur stay here and don't forget the light and sound show
