If you had seen the movie "The best exotic Marigold hotel" this is something you must live. The hotel now is old and dirty, wi fi only in the lobby, the breakfast was really nice as well as the staff, if you are able to pay a little more for the suite do it as it has AC. The area... More

It's not easy to rate this place because of the baffling mix of sumptuous surroundings and faded grandeur. The common area is beautifully decorated, including the dining room, with wall paintings, mirror work and uniformed waiters. We had one of the rooms in an annex, and although the sheets were crisp and the bathrooms spotless, the cracks and damp spots... More

The owner made us feel welcomed and special, a great place to stay if you want to visit jaipur for a while . Views from... More

I travelled with a large group of Europeans on a package holiday and could compare this hotel with others we stayed at in Rajasthan. It has loads of history but it is tired in places. We had a very good room at the top of the hotel but the lift to the rooms at the top was antiquated and small... More

I have no words to describe the feeling of staying in an Indian palace. I felt like a princess. The whole place is very well decorated and has a charming and authentic feel to it. It's pretty and pink! The outside garden is beautiful as well as the pool in the backyard. The rooms are small but very accomodating and... More

I have stayed in The Bissau Palace twice, I love it. The Staff are amazing, remembering my favourite breakfast preference is special as it is my favourite meal of the day. To relax in the sitting rooms surrounded by pictures of days gone by, imagining you were listening to the sitar and tabla with the Maharaja, enjoying a glass of... More

Really colorful and interesting character property. Worth taking photos of the murals, with each room different. Staff are friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast offers good food and choice. There is a pool at the rear of the hotel and a few souvenir sops close by. While modern conveniences may be lacking, the ambiance well compensates. Highly recommend staying... More

Perfect for a leisurely stay. Don't expect flat screen TVs or modern amenities but you don't need them. Enjoy the peace and quiet, read a book with a drink,Enjoy live folk music, puppet shows and great food.

This is a must place to stay in Jaipur. The palace is absolutely stunning. The palace has all of the original features. All of the rooms are very nice with very nice furnishings. The bed I slept in was comfy. The hotel palace provides good service and the food is very good. The palace does not have very good wifi... More

Front entrance & hotel is magnificent, like stepping back in time. Room was well furnished, and laid out. Staff friendly, nothing too much trouble. Facilities were wonderful & memorable. My wife & I loved our time there, wished we could have stayed longer. A real Jewel in this city.
