Falcon has decent rooms, some with balconies, and nicely made beds. If you arrive and there are rooms free, ask to be shown all the options before deciding on your room. The rooms vary in price depending on size and location in the guest house.
It's a 10 minute walk from the bird park, and about a 3 minute walk to the helpful tourist reception office, the bus stand to Agra, and the train reservation office (next to the tourist reception office).
They all cook the food themselves in the kitchen next to the back yard. The back yard is very prettily decorated, with little tables and lights. There's a covered area for nights, and if there's a few of you out there, ask if they can start the brazier. There's a bit of a lack of concentration with food. Don't expect your food to arrive at any particular time, as it's a family-run thing. They may forget your order, or otherwise forget something else about your order. It's best to try to accept this for what it is and not mind too much.
Beer can be purchased on the opposite side of the main intersection about 2 mins walk from the hotel, as the hotel doesn't provide beer.
The hot water was not quite working when we there, but it may not have been there fault. There is a regular 6am-7am blackout in all of Bharatpur, which you should factor into your plans if you require an early start.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ours is a small, family-run establishment. Though we do not yet have any ambitious expansions plans, we sure want to run our setup as efficiently as we possibly can. Tourist flow to Bharatpur is seasonal - December, January, February being the heaviest months; October-November & March-April are less so; May to September is the usual off-season period, and we may offer about 20-30% discount on our room tariff (only). Though we do maintain skeletal room service (admittedly), we encourage all our guests to interact and eat at our restaurant on the ground floor - we ensure that you get absolutely fresh and literally steaming hot food that way ! ... more less
