We stayed in 350 rupees double bed room 2 days. Good shower, normal WiFi, helpful owner, place for motorcycle, interesting sightseeing. In Orchha is not available cheap fast food, only expensive restaurants for tourists with not adequate prices. In veg market sellers is not adequate too.

Again I had plans on staying elsewhere (Shri Mahant-see other review) but was convinced by pushy tuk tuk driver. Below average room for above average low season price. I stayed one night here to be polite before moving to my preferred guesthouse. Small room, hard bed, mosquitoes galore, no mosquito net, dodgy electrical plugs and foul bathroom, when toilet was...

Nice rooms, clean bed and bathroom. Wonderful garden and an amazing view of the palace from the back. Please try the food here as it is cooked by the managers wife. It was much better than most of the restaurants.

Two nights here with very poor sleep. There was an overflow from the tank next door which dripped continuouly all night. Not very clean, and we were disappointed. Stayed upstairs in a better room but can't recommend.

Beautifully located on the banks of an offshoot from the Betwa river, Hotel Ganpati at Orchha has spectacular views of the distant Jahangir Mahal. The evening light & sound shows held at the Mahal, can be experienced from its terraces. Very helpful owners, warm hospitality with well maintained rooms make for a comfortable stay in this small, sleepy village town.... More

Half the property looks like it's under long term derelict construction. I don't get how some reviewers can find that cozy. Maybe they too live in half completed homes. The rooms are clean enough but not much love or care has been put into the place. The view on the castle is superb, though. I shelved 1,250 rupees for one... More

Its a great place to stay in Orchha. It is located on the main road (at the beginning of the market) and everything within the city is walking distance. Its easy to find an auto right outside the hotel. The owner is quite helpful and was nice to talk to. He even lent us his umbrella as it was very... More

The hotel is located on the main road and it is just within 10 minutes walking distance to the fort. It is safe and reasonably priced. For a lady travelling alone, I did not feel out of place at all. The room was clean and neat. There was hot water available in the shower all the time. However, it was... More

Ideally located in Orchha with views across the riverbed of the palace area. Friendly owner, clean, basic rooms with WiFi. If staying here check out 'Grace of India' restaurant a few doors down towards the village centre (there's no TripAdvisor entry for it?!). Family run restaurant and beauty parlour. I has the best salted lassi here I've had in India... More

I was in Orchha,Jhansi, for a devotional trip.The rooms are neat and clean .The rent is between Rs 1000 to Rs 1400. But it is worth staying here.The entrance is a bit hidden from the road but it is very comfortable when you are into it. The owner is straight and wise .Gets you informed with a nice and humble...
