Surprisingly nice hotel up a small back street. We encountered a problem with our car not being able to access the front of the hotel. Our driver had to walk to the hotel and ask for the porters to come down and meet with us. They carried our luggage up the hill. The walk was hard going after a long day's drive. Would be very difficult for the elderly or infirm. The problem with car access was ongoing during the length of our stay. The driver of the car had to meet us at the bottom of the hill and we would have to walk a kilometre or two to where the car was parked on the edge of the old city. Not the driver's fault. There is simply nowhere to park.
We were allocated room 401. It was an average sized room off the side of the rooftop restaurant. There was no lift so it is a long way up and down all the stairs. No refrigerator supplied for keeping food or drinks cold or jug for heating water. Limited hot water for showers - 7am to 10am and 7 pm to 9 pm. Nicely decorated room though, with small day bed in nook beside recessed windows. Great place to chill out with a book or magazine and a cup of tea for half an hour. The room and bathroom were kept very clean.
All restaurant meals and breakfast that we had were quite good. The view from the rooftop restaurant is quite wonderful, overlooking on one side Lake Pichola, Jag Niwas (Island Palace) and Jag Mandir (Pleasure Island). Staff were friendly and gave good service. It was a bit cold, so braziers were placed beside each table. We were staying at this hotel for New Years Eve. Unfortunately, there was no special celebration organised at the hotel. But we went up to the roof top restaurant, as did some other guests, and had a magnificent 360 degree view of the fireworks from the houses and hotels nearby which lasted about half an hour. A special way to spend memorable New Years Eve.
The hotel is well situated within the old city for sightseeing and shopping. Everything is within walking distance.
