We stayed here for 3 nights during the end of 2012.
Beautiful 200 year old palace converted into a hotel. Every corner throws up something new. Lovely terrace with view of the fort. Its an excellent base to explore the old havelis and even the fort is a short walk away. Rajasthani folk singers were pretty good.
We had booked a desert safari through the hotel which turned out to be pretty pretty bad. (Left halfway through). Food is ok at best. Expected better breakfast at a property of this level.
