“Unique Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

India is a place full of rich history combined with great culture and traditions, marked with vibrant colours in the entire country.
The Lakshmi Vilas Palace Hotel in Bharatpur, is something i wish to bring to the traveller’s attention. The rich culture and the palace atmosphere coupled with experiences of excellent paintings,gardens, royal rooms,the tall dining hall with excellent chandeliers,and paintings on the ceilings, the Hotel maintains the traditional appearance of the courtyard,the antique furnitures, the doors and windows give a look of the ancient times when the princesses stood on the verandah to watch the fun during Holi, Sawan ka Mahina festivals,Teej,and other occasions.
The early mornings in the premises of the Hotel gardens one gets to hear the different birds cooing in their sweet melody, the migratory birds are also seen ,as one takes a walk on the pathway of the fountains in the palace Hotel.....
Food served is authentic, simple and goes with the local taste. The Hotel staff are very warm and alert catering to the needs of the occupants, most of who are foreigners, and some of us who truely wish to experience the past culture.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable and an experience...!

We stayed here for a long weekend with friends. It was a wonderful experience. Kids enjoyed a lot. There was a person deputed to look after the kids, so we were relaxed. The staff took excellent care of us. Everything was well organized. What made the greatest impression was the warmth in every interaction. I specially loved the cozy bar. Had a great time, would love to comeback to this lovely place.

After a lovely summer in Italy I came back to incredebly India and wounderful Laxmi Vilas hotel in Bharatpur and got the lovely news that water is back in the park and birds as well. Weather has been outstanding as well as food, inhouse bakery bread and I enjoyed the new poolbar with BBQ.... Perfect to end up here after a drive through Delhi from the airport and the expressway to Agra.....here You can feel that You have realy landed in India at its best.

Room Tip: A sunrisefacing room or a poolfacing room in the old wing is according to me best.

We spent 2 nights and 3 days here and were truly awed by the experience and personal attention given by staff . The amenities were luxurious and the place had a feel of history. The Dinning hall was particularly stunning with beautiful hand painted designs and paintings .
We had our evening snacks and drinks in the courtyard of the old palace with bonfire in the middle and enjoyed the personal attention given by the attendants there .
It was remarkable that on the second evening , my drink was served exactly the way I like it without even having to ask for it .
Would love to come back here with my family ...........

This is a pretty looking place from the outside and convenient for the bird park. We refused the first room offered because it was pretty poky, but were quite happy with the second. The reason I give it only 3 stars is because the service was pretty ordinary and there were odd things such as they turn the hot water off overnight with the result that if you get up early, say to go the birdpark at dawn, there is no hot water available. For that matter there is no wake up service either because the person behind the front desk is asleep on the floor! Meals available are buffet style with the fairly predictable end result of Delhi Belly - a particularly virulent strain at that. If hotels that are fairly isolated are going to insist on buffet meals, the least they could do is maintain standards. There is nothing more guaranteed to sour an impression of a place than an unpleasant bout of food poisoning.

This is a great looking hotel but the service could have been better and staff more freindly. We alo had a problem with Mosquitos and had to asked for them to be sprayed. You would have hoped they would have done this before we were given the room.

Room was large and very clean. The breakfast was also very good and plentiful. General staff were friendly but the main staff could have been more approachable.

We had a terrible experience with this place - our room was infested with mosquitoes (about 40 were killed by hand and there were more coming) and when we requested to switch, the concierge laughed at us. Then their solution was to spray our entire room with bug spray, which would've been not ideal but okay, but the attendant sprayed it all over our bed and all over our bed, sheets & pillows. There's no place to eat around the hotel and the TV in our room did not work either. Further, their AC was so old and it was very noisy.

The pictures looked so nice we were so excited to stay in this place and I gotta say it was a complete let down. Our room did not look anything like the rooms in the pictures, but the building itself is very pretty.
