Ishwari Niwas Palace
Ranked #6 of 13 Hotels in Bundi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 3, 2008

We stayed here as part of a Rajasthan tour in early 2007 (I note the tour no longer goes to Bundi - which is a shame). The accommodation on the tour was meant to be mid-range, but the guide warned us this hotel would not be as flash as the others. It's a former palace, and the family still lives on the upper level.
In terms of creature comforts the guide was right - the hotel was basically furnished. The bathroom, while clean, was also basic. However, it had loads of atmosphere - its courtyard provided a relaxed and pleasant lounging area.
The staff (a team of men) who cleaned, cooked and attended the bar, were helpful and friendly. Our evening meal, described by our guide as "country cooking", was tasty and simple. A stuffed leopard (a gift of the local maharaja) mounted on the wall loomed over us as we ate.
The hotel is a few kilometres from Bundi's wonderful fort (a partially-renovated treasure) and the Jodphur-esque blue old town, but it's close to the city centre, which was lively and friendly.
I rank this hotel above average for the service and atmosphere, rather than the quality of the accommodation.
