Arrived at 6am..and the reception was ready for us..! Since we were early, there was no room but they let us waited at the garden cafe and later provided us with free chai. Later around 8am, we were given a room at 8am....Never arrived that early as we were charged Rs 130..at the prepaid autorickshaw..but what the heck.. we just need a place to sit after the train journey.
Might not be easy to find to those who are not familiar with the area.. as our autorickshaw was going around and around and around.....till we get there after asking around and calling the hotel. Should u have this issue, just say Pearl Palace hotel, located opposite of Chitra Katha...
The place is near to train station...perhaps a walk of 15 minutes..by autorickshaw..just a few minutes away.. but it's slightly far from the city center.. we had a rickshaw for about Rs 70. Don't worry. there are many autorickshaws outside the hotels as there are abt 4 hotels along the road. We paid Rs300 for a city place, amber fort and going around the city...which was for abt 5 hrs for us.
We had a room on the ground level. The bathroom and non AC room was clean..! With simple deco and lovely ceiling fresco. My best accommodation in my entire trip in India... However, the window didn't shut properly so it was a bit cold in the eve..but stil manageable...
Internet was Rs25/half an hour if i recall corectly.
The restaurant food was also fair.. Try the wanton soup.. execellent..!! Well... the kitchen might be a bit slow.. but the foodwas of good portion and ok.
