“Space for big improvements!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Like many other reviewers mentioned, the perfect location and friendly management was the positive side. Unfortunately the hotel staff is very noisy from early in the morning and you can hear train hooting during the whole night. The rooms are spacious but it could be cleaner and the bedlinen is old, dirty and smelly. It is due water pressure that it is not possible to have a good shower.

Room Tip: The top rooms might be a quieter position.

Experience:
It’s a heritage hotel – a stunning palace which takes your breath away completely at first sight. Its almost like museum with awesome view of nearby buildings and its looks completely out of world in the eve. Rooms are huge and extremely comfortable. Dining room & bar is stunning gives you a taste of by-gone era.

Good stuff – Best place to stay in Bikaner, stunning view, good bar, eve folk dance, singing & puppets show is great. You can easily spend a day exploring the hotel itself.

Not so good – food, service and cleanliness is average. Also if you are brown skin expect to be given lower priority & preference.

This was one of my nicest stays in India. For the price you just can't go wrong. The room was well sized and clean clean clean. What more do you need to know? Nice public areas with cushions and shade. And I just loved the lively color scheme of the place. Hand painted murals in every room.

Great attention by the proprietor and fine service. Good location too not far from the clock tower and with views of the fort. Next time I'm in Jodhpur, I'll be at the Laxmi Newas for sure.

Laxmi Niwas has extremely friendly and obliging management, as well as a nice rooftop restaurant with comfy cushions to sit, read etc. The rooms were fine, some didn't have hot water, but that seems to be the norm in India and it was pretty cheap. Hard beds and noisy front room (but everywhere seems noisy in Jodhpur) but quite clean, one computer with free internet. Let us not only leave bags after we checked out, but also use a spare room 's bathroom during that day. If you're budget travelling, this is a good option.

Great stay in hotel. Nice spacious rooms and a good price. Staff were very helpful and friendly, and even helped us with our onward journey. Hassel free pick and drop off from train station was much appreciated. In close proximity to clock tower and markets (walking distance) and nice view from roof top restuarant of the fort. Would stay again!! Thankyou Sunny...you brightened our stay!!

Every time I am in Jodhpur I choose Laxmi Niwas - because of friendly and helpful host, hastle free atmospere, clean and spacious rooms in good price (even though I have never been honoured with hot water :-)). The food is safe and tasty. It is situated about 15 minutes walk from the fort, 5 minutes to Clock Tower. This hotel is really worth reccomendation.

This place is really the best place in Jodhpur. Magnificent views, perfect host and clean and big rooms. The food is excellent and the Nepali staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed staying here and felt sorry to leave again.
