We booked 4 nights here knowing it to be the sister of Shahi Palace and it came recommended. We were not very happy due to problems some of which were not the fault of the hotel but consideration could have been made because they knew of the problem.
The 1st room at the top which we had requested had no hot water so we were moved to a room below with hardly any space to squeeze by on one side. We had requested a big room with enough room to walk around the bed and in a quiet position. We also had to ask for the room to be dusted.
That afternoon we found there was a wedding in progress. Music was continous but eventually stopped at about 11.30pm
Next day the music did not stop and when we returned at about 9.30pm the hotel moved us for 1 night to Shahi. Thankfully the groom went off at about 10pm on the 3rd night with speakers blasting out.
A good point. We went to the desert for 1 night (peace) and Shahi Palace let us use a room on return.
The most helpful person was the son of one of the brothers
The cost of the accommodation was one of the most expensive, probably due to the fact that it was festival time.
We did look at another hotel because of the noise but it was not available the day we looked so decided not to move for 2 nights. This other hotel had a very big room in the Fort a wonderful view with a bathroom of about the same quality and the same price.
Our experience has marred our outlook for this hotel. We do feel that we should have been moved to somewhere quiet at the beginning.
When we left we had hired a car belonging to Shahi Palace. It was the worst car we hired and the most expensive. We had a driver who was unable to comunicate in English, who took too many risks, did not know where our hotel was, picked up a tut tut driver to show him the way (who plagued us next day. )and then waited for a tip at the end. Which he did not get.
A sad experience
