My wife booked this hotel for our 19 international wedding guests from Switzerland.
Altogether we had an absolutely great experience. The staff was all the time there for us and very helpful.
Specially to mention is the owner of the Devi Niketan. He is from a royal Rajasthani family and a former Admiral of the Indian Navy. He is an absolutely trustworthy and wise Men. The Devi NIketan used to be his family home. For his daughters marriage he prepared it as a place for his international guests and because he liked it this way he started a hotel. He did very well and all of us felt like @ home in Devi Niketan.
Room, food, service everything was absolutely outstanding. There is was not even one point we had to complain about. Perfect place to be.
Some recommendations: The roof top is a great place for some evening drinks. Spend some time with the Admiral if possible and learn about India. The English of many staff member is not the best. still they are very helpful, take your time and find a way or just ask the admiral. Order Dinner early enough or go to Handi and have some excellent fresh kebabs.
