“Clean and Quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

First and foremost, it's not a hotel, one may call it a guest house but it's a serious let down for travellers who are looking for some kind of luxuries with star facilities.
Why Govardhan Tourist Complex: Its right at the footstep of the only attraction in the town, the Buland Darwaza- Jodhabai Palace complex,
The Owners are very warm and ensure every effort to make you feel home, we especially loved the gesture when an indian preparation was served during the dinner complimentary which was prepared by the owner himself.
It has a nicely done small lawn right in front of the rooms,
But the best what i liked was the fact that the owner, Mr Saurabh Garg was waiting at the main entrance while we were getting late in the night on our way to the place from Jaipur, I got delighted to see a small boy handling over a red rose as soon as we entered the premises, I simply loved it.
The staff is courteous, and ask for the meals on their own, never witnessed even a single incidence of any misbehaviour with us or any other guests during our stay.
Food is just palatable but as you don't have any other options in the town, you better have them here only.
Rooms are clean, and the one given to us was moderately big, and i liked the fact that it already had an extra bed as i had requested before we checked in.
Property seems to be safe, though it remains open most of the time from the front.
On the minus side, The place has a Bad electricity setup, whether it is Power back up, or the electricity fittings.
I stayed here for two nights, we all were extremely tired after a long trip, and boy, i had bad sleep on both the nights. The Power keeps coming and going which i can easily identify with because i share the same state with Sikri, but there are NO inverter connections to the fans, you will literally wake up due to heat and will have to walk down to the reception, wake up the guy there and ask him to start the generator, the same night it happened one more time when the boy at the reception told that due to the long run of generator he had to turn it off, fortunately the power supply appeared and we could sleep thereafter.
While on the first night, the ceiling fan was sounding horribly which was fixed the next morning after complaint, only for the new issue to let in the following night :)
My washroom didn't have an inverter connection either, imagine the lady who is taking bath gets a sudden light off and an absolutely dark washroom,,,,,,,,, There is no exhaust in the washroom and the exhaust set on the window of the room was nonfunctional, we had to keep the windows open to let the fresh air come in. Immediately after a 5 Star stay in Jaipur, it was probably a little too much for us.
Nevertheless if the problems related to the power are sorted out, the place is friendly and homely.
The Ceiling Starry night and the candle light dinner were cute.
Overall 3 stars for the place , a half for the owner's efforts and a Heart for Saurabh :)
Travellers Watch out : The guides take you to a place in The Dargah where Sheets are sold that are offered to the saint's Shrine, I wonder if these guides have a share in what you pay to those sellers.

We enjoyed staying here. Our room was clean, the staff were friedly and helpful and the proprieter provided good advice on places to see in Fatehpur Sikri. The location is ideal for the mosque and palace too. There's also a good restaurant on site with a good choice of meals.

We chose this hotel because of the location and the positive reviews here, and we were not disappointed. The facilities are fairly basic, but the room was spacious and immaculately clean, the food was fresh and tasty, and the service was both friendly and helpful. The owners clearly care about ensuring that guests have a positive experience. But the real reason to stay here is the location. Being able to walk to the palace complex first thing in the morning, before the tour groups arrived by bus from Agra, was wonderful.

For a very reasonable price you get a basic, clean room. The location is excellent - only 5 minutes walk to the Royal Palace and Jama Masjid. The manager was very helpful and courteous - he organised a car for a day trip to Agra, as well as organising an auto-rickshaw for our onward travel.
The only negative I would say is the food in the restaurant - it was extremely salty and swimming in ghee, after the first day we only ordered the plainest food we could.
Overall I would recommend this place for a night or two.

Read a few good reviews and decided to book accommodation at this hotel and wasn't disappointed. It's a small yet sincere place, the hotel owners are nice people. Pretty clean and food is good too. However, portions are smaller than what you'd expect. Simple and memorable is how my family and I will remember our stay here. Definitely recommended!

The staff was brilliant. We arrived at 2am and the restaurant was closed but they still woke up the chef and prepared dinner for us. They didn't have the 5* facilities but their rooms were spacious an clean. It was the best in the area. They did not hassle us for tips and the hotel was 5 mins walk away from the palace and dargah. Highly recommended!!! The manager was excellent . Thank you to him and his staff for making our trip easier.

I just came back from this hotel, and it s a very good place to visit Fathepur Sikri. It s clean, quiet and peacefull.
the restaurant is alright.

If you have time, it s a good idea to spent one night in this city, to visit the site very early at the morning...
