“Great rooms, awesome staff”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I've been to Orchha two times and both times stayed in Fort View Guesthouse. I love it. The rooms are clean with a great variety according to price. A great common garden area with a spectacular view of the river and palace. It's family run and they really work hard to ensure your satisfaction. Even though I wasn't staying in an expensive room they asked me everyday if I needed anything or if everything is okay. They take pride in their work and you can really tell. Definitely recommend staying here.

I had booked 3 rooms through Internet to this hotel and the 6 of us stayed 1 night in October 2013. The hotel was under renovations and it was the worst place we stayed during our trip in India. The 3 cm thick mattress is terrible and you can feel the wood underneath . My window did not close completely, so there were all kind of bugs in the room and bathroom. In One of the bathrooms, the water was running in the wall. The only positive comment is that we were provided 2 sheets and that the staff was kind. There are plenty of hotels on the main road very close to this one. So I would recommend you check for another one because our rooms were definitely not worth the 800R.

we stayed here for 1 night, the room was really dirty and disgusting, we asked for clean sheets, and they gave us other dirty sheets, the windows didn't close so at night the room was full of mosquitoes and insects.
the matrasses are as hard as wood, it's really difficult to sleep on!! it is very unconfortable!
moreover the guy at the reception tried to cheat us, we had an agreement with an autorickshaw driver (200 rs to jhansi railway station) and at the very last moment the receptionist told us that he called another rickshaw so that the price would be 300 rupees!!! we had a train just 1 hour later and he knew that we were in a hurry.. we were lucky because we found another one for 200 rupees but the receptionist really mosbeahved himself!!!
we don't recommend this guesthouse to anyone!

We arrived late at night and were shown to a room at the back of the garden.

The room had a large bed and ceiling fan and a particularly large bathroom. The hotel (and Orchha itself) has a lot of insects and the room was full of them. The bath/shower was also full of flies.

Showering was a 2-person job as the pipe connecting to the shower head did not attach to the tap. We were also not able to shower when we left the hotel at 5.30am as there was no running water!

The location is excellent for walking around Orchha.

It was easy to get to the hotel from Jhansi station which is 18km away and when we left Orchha we left from the newly built Orchha station which is only 5km away.
