We were impressed with the room we were given at this hotel, it is in the old city of Bikaner which is a tuk tuk ride through narrow streets or a very intrepid driver to access the hotel. Our room was not set up for three guests but a bed was brought very quickly and made up for us. We...

Hidden in the bylanes, it turned out to be a great choice. Thanks to the staff and owner, we got guided by a rickshaw to the hotel as it would have been very difficult to reach on our own. Parked our SUV on the street with a watchman to look after it. Roamed around all of Bikaner in the same...

Also called as the Rampuria hotel by the locals this is a well-preserved haveli located within the old walled city. It quite close to the 2 temples within the city walls and a short walk to the railway station area where the market is located. Haveli itself is well-preserved. The living room and the reading room are preserved as is...

Stayed at the Bhanwar Niwas for one night as we explored the city. The room was huge, high ceilings, antique furniture and a large, comfortably firm bed. The location is great - nestled within the old city walls and a short stroll from the spice markets and large Jain temple. The rooms open out onto the picturesque courtyard which was...

The restored haveli is a national monument. The rooms are large, airy and very clean. Our ground floor room opened into a large courtyard that was peaceful and relaxing to sit in and enjoy a drink. The hotel staff were very courteous, the service was good and nothing was too much trouble. Ask to visit the roof of the hotel...

The hotel is in the very center of Bikaner and is hosted in a very nice structure. Unfortunately for us, our two rooms were pretty bad. Far from being clean yet just acceptable, they were extremely cold and same goes for the bathrooms. At least we could get warm water after 5 minutes with tap fully open. Overall not a...

Very well maintained heritage hotel. Like a mini Versailles. Luxurious. Takes you back in time. Italian,French and Rajasthani style. The food was average though. The only two negatives I could see was the accessibility(through very narrow roads) and the quality of food.

As you enter Bikaner city, the hotel staff suggests you meet a designated auto driver who will direct you to the haveli. While following him, you traverse the narrowest roads imaginable, jostle for space with cows, scooters, rickshaws, pedestrians and little kids. You almost decide to start looking for alternative accommodation. But then you arrive. One step into this haveli...

The place was so overwhelming and I took more than an hour clicking my camera. The service was great. A staff invited me to the roof top to view the neighbourhood.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated inside the walled city of Bikaner is Bhanwar Niwas, the grandest of the famed havelis belonging to the Rampuria family. Bhanwar Niwas is a tribute and testimony to the skill and craftsmanship of the artisans of Bikaner. Completed in 1927 for Bhanwarlalji Rampuria, heir to a textile and real estate fortune, Bhanwar Niwas reflects the fashionable tastes of the 1920's, a taste for formal and well ordered luxury with modern conveniences of the time. The architecture of the haveli is a fascinating mix of Indian and European styles. On the ground floor are the public rooms including the Blue Drawing Room and the Little Drawing Room. For your palate we serve delectable vegetarian food in the magnificent Dining Hall. ... more   less
