We stayed in Neemrana in August 2009 for two nights. It is extremely difficult to get bookings for this resort as they are always full and we booked quite late so did not have options to choose from their rooms. The booking process is tedious as they did not give us the option of online payment and they want 100% advance at their booking office to confirm the booking! We rushed to pay them and wanted to see a picture of the room they gave us but they did not have a great picture. We stayed in Dahej Mahal, do not ever book this room as the wash room is tiny and this room has two tiny rooms with no view. The wash room had a strange smell and needs renovation. One chooses Neemrana for its old world charm however the wash rooms should be new and swanky as no one wants old, dull, drab, smelly wash rooms especially when they charge as much as any other hotel with great facilities. Quite a disappointment for the amount we paid. The interiors of our room were average, nothing close to what Neemrana website showcases. This room’s pictures are not on the website. The fort and palace does look beautiful when you arrive and is a romantic place but is not a great option if you are traveling with kids. Our room was on the first floor and very far from the dining rooms/areas. This is an old fort so the stairs have huge steps and we traveled with our 2.5 years old daughter. It was difficult for her to climb the stairs.
Overall, we had an average experience, probably our expectations were very high as it is always full and quite sought after.
• The dinner venue which had the fort as a backdrop was very romantic and beautiful
• The Rajasthani folk dance organized on our first night was nice
• The fort palace is quite beautiful; the entrance is interesting though a long walk to the reception
• Staff is helpful
• Average fare for breakfast
• Is not great value for money
• Our room was quite a disappointment (read the review)
• Booking process needs to be better
• Wash room had a smell. They need to be renovated. Does not have modern fittings and fixtures which one expects from well known chains like Neemarana. We have stayed in three different Neemrana hotels and washrooms at all properties are bad and old.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Over the last three decades, the ‘Neemrana’ of the stunningly restored 15th century Fort-Palace, has come to mean many things. For architects it is a unique example of utter waste turned into a 14-tiered marvel with palace wings, courts and stepped gardens, felicitated with national and international awards. For guests, it means discovering over five centuries of history experienced with modern comforts. Only 100 kms from Delhi, just off the main highway NH8 to Jaipur, Neemrana Fort-Palace is a favourite site for celebrations, feasts, conferences, a quiet retreat for yoga and relaxation or India’s first site where you can indulge in five thrilling zip-line tracks that literally fly you in the sky. Built since 1464 CE, on a plateau of the two billion year old Aravalli ranges, this 14-tiered property sprawls across 10 green hectares / 25 acres. For guests, this offers 72 rooms / suites, 3 conference halls (Jazam, Qanat & Kasturi), hanging gardens, arched pavilions and balconies. The upper levels of the northern wing of the Fort-Palace can now be accessed from the car park by a 110 feet high lift which leads by the Saat Bagh to a second box lift. This architectural wonder can now also be enjoyed by the elderly and the less-abled who can be shown the upper parts carried on a palanquin chair by four able men ! Neemrana Fort-Palace has two spectacular pools that lean out to the sun. The upper pool is heated in the winter months to take the enjoyment of sunsets to another level. An intimate play area for young toddlers & the adjacent Neemrana eco-farm have been added recently so that you consume healthy organic food. Try our Maha Burj gold-platter thali for Rajasthani cuisine, or the buffet with a variety of cuisines that suits many palates. Wander the 2.4 hectares/6 acres of Palace with a self-guided multimedia tour. Ride a camel/camel cart or a vintage car. Walk out to the 16th century step well which descends 7 floors into the earth. Feel a new Indian high. To have you here is to share our life’s vision of how ruins can revitalise a whole region. Neemrana not only strive to revive and restore the heritage structure but it also generates jobs and economic opportunities hiring and consuming locally. It is no wonder that Neemrana has been listed in the 100 things you must do on the planet Earth before its time for you to leave it ! But when this list was made, only one Neemrana existed – now there are 23 ! ... more less
