Oasis is a wonderful, small hotel (about 10 rooms I think) just a short walk away from it's 'big sister' Shahi Palace (where we had most of our meals)
We had a free pick-up and drop off, which was fantastic!
When we got there, most of the hotel was empty so we had a choice of rooms. The ones on the ground floor are fairly basic, clean and don't have windows and from there the rooms get bigger, grander and with stunning views. All of the rooms are beautifully decorated.
Although we were told that we could have a simple breakfast at Oasis, we had our meals in Shahi Place instead. The staff were really friendly and the food tasty. They had a varied menu which was great if you needed something other than Indian food! The roof-top is lovely and there is an incredible view of the fort.
We were only asked once if we were interested in a camel tour and weren't hassled at all regarding this - in general the staff were very helpful and provided good information.
The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk away from the fort and market which is really handy. The thing I loved the most about both Oasis and Shahi, is that it is really quiet and you don't hear the constant traffic and city noise around you!
