Pushkar is really a dump. As far as I could tell we stayed at the best hotel in town; actually sort of on the outskirts of town. It seems like a very old hotel. But I'm actually not sure it is. Room was pretty spacious and bathroom also ok. Previous reviews have said it's dirty. Obviously they haven't stayed at dirty hotels. But it's not clean as you expect from a hotel in this price range. Food there was terrible - so actually sub standard of the hotel. The hotel consists of two separate but identical buildings. Two big lounges (one with wifi) and two big dinning halls with buffet. We were dinning all by ourselves in the huge and strangely decorated dinning room together with four waiters and one cashier who all just stared at us. We sort of felt like we were in a movie and I joked that we would be part of the buffet the next day. Actually my friend didn't find that funny. But truth be told the staff is actually really friendly and well meaning. The hotel just has a strange vibe. But I suppose it's actually pretty consistent with the vipe of the town.
The hotel is very well meaning Electricity kept coming and going but can't necessarily fault the hotel for that. Happens in the best of places in India.
If you really insist on going to Pushcar I suppose this is the best place to stay. However I would recommend that if you really want to see Pushkar you do it without overnight stay.
Tip: My friend got an ayurvedic full body massage, her breasts included. So if you don't appreciate that perhaps refrain from a massage here. Wouldn't count on being able to communicate it beforehand.
