Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a fabulous and peaceful property away! Absolutely loved my stay here. Beautiful large, clean and heritage style rooms and a lovely poolside restaurant and lawn with a stunning view of the town and surrounding hills. The food is very good and the staff is warm and attentive. The horses here are adorable and so are the cute tortoises roaming around in the lawn. A must stay hotel in Pushkar. Mr Virendra was a wonderful host and we will definitely be back here when we visit Pushkar again.

A good simple hotel, with lots of traditional characteristics from another era. The room was neat, clean and simple. Hot water took a long time to come through the pipes unfortunately. I enjoyed a quick dip in the pool on a hot afternoon. Although too cold for the others in our group, which is to be expected at this time of year. Ordering a coffee was a bit tricky with the language barrier. Staff were keen to help at any opportunity.

The Gulaab Niwaas Palace is located in a hill overlooking Pushkar. We found it to be a great location as we had a breeze and a view and it was out of the hustle and bustle but just a quick drive from town. The hotel itself is a grand building with a slight air of decay. The room is comfortable but not particularly stylish. That said, our room opened to a terrace and we were very happy. The staff could not have been more accomodating. They arranged for Ayurvedic massages on site. The restaurant was completely empty but the food was fine and the service was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay.

We booked this property in a rush not knowing what are we getting into. The booking was made due to the phone call i had made to the hotel and the opposite voice ensuring me of a nice stay at their property. Gulaab Niwaas, actually felt like an old world charm. Beautiful arches, dramatic staircase, art displayed throughout the palace. The entire property was surrounded with lush green lawns and plenty of trees and plants. Early morning time, surrounded with hills from all sides, breakfast being served by the pool side with beautiful Indian folk music playing in the background. It felt Surreal. Virendra Singh Bhati, was the voice on the opposite of phone who convinced us to stay in Gulaab Niwas. We were so glad that we made the right choice. Also, talking about the service of the hotel. I had forgotten my money in the room (it was quite a lot of money). I realised the money was short when we were 5 hours away from the property. I made a call to Virendra, he found the money in the room and it was safely handed over to me after 2 days. Thank you to this person, he really made my day and we had wonderful memories to carry with us.

We chose Gulaab Niwaas hotel in Pushkar based on TripAdvisor reviews, but unfortunately, our stay fell short of expectations. Our booking coincided with a post-wedding period, possibly explaining the lethargic staff and subpar service. Despite encountering issues, the management seemed inhospitable and unresponsive. No discounted rate or compensation was offered for the inconveniences we faced, including a cold shower due to their reliance on solar power. Toiletries were limited, forcing us to improvise with shampoo as shower gel. The food quality was mediocre, and service lapses, such as incorrect orders, highlighted the need for better staff training. Notably, the receptionist denied the existence of a jeep safari service, conflicting with a board prominently displayed at the reception. This misinformation led us to seek such services locally. In addition to the service shortcomings, cleanliness at Gulaab Niwaas Hotel was notably subpar. A phone call from the room left my hand coated in dust, highlighting a concerning lack of attention to cleanliness. This aspect further detracted from the overall comfort and satisfaction of our stay. Overall, our experience at Gulaab Niwaas was marred by indifferent service, lackluster amenities, and misinformation. We hope the management takes steps to address these issues for future guests.

I had bookings from 03rd to 05th January at the hotel, but then due to some reason, we planed to reach a day early at the Pushkar. On my request, Mr Virendra reserved a room for me for 2nd January at the same rate in which i had done my earlier bookings. Online rates were too high for 02nd Jaunary. There is no dout in the hospitality and service provided by Mr Virendra at the reception desk. All the staffs, room service, house keeping along with the watch man at the main gate were very friendly and cordial towards the guests. Room was good in the size, clean, attached balcony, though my room didnt have any view as such. Pool also looked good, bonfire in the winter evening along with the live wood fire pizza are all plus point of the hotel. Hotel is also at a very convenient distace from the main pushkar ghat, temple and market. The evening aarti is clearly audible at the garden area of the hotel. The stay was value for money and there is no regret for choosing this hotel at all!!

Stay was fabulous. The trip to this property was outstanding because of amazing view. The Manager Virendra Singh was very friendly and cooperative toward us. I like the most thing in hotel that they have pet animals in the property.

I had a wonderful stay at Gulaab Niwaas Palace in Pushkar. The hotel is situated on a hill overlooking the town, lakes and temples, offering a stunning view from the balcony. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, with colonial-style furniture and modern amenities. The staff are very courteous, helpful and attentive, and they made me feel welcome and pampered. The food at the restaurant is delicious, especially the vegetarian dishes and Woodfired pizza. The pool is also a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Pushkar for its hospitality, location and value for money. Would like to thank Virendra Singh for the utmost care he took of me and my family.
