We chose this hotel based on our guidebook and Tripadvisor reviews. We hadn't realised it was a little further out than most of the tourist accommodation, but this was not a problem for us as we had hired a car/driver for part of our Rajasthan trip. However, the walk itself is a lot shorter than it looks and would be fine in the day. However at night you would want to get an autorickshaw, or at least have company and a torch. Those are my thoughts for future travellers. But as for our stay...
I thought the Hotel was fantastic. It is a lovingly designed building in traditional haveli style inside and out. The rooms have a great ambiance and the bathrooms are clean and had hot water (important for the cold nights and mornings in winter). Our room had a lovely bay window and was spacious. The highlight was the great rooftop terrace, which is decorated beautifully, comfortable and relaxing. The restaurant up here is great - good service and food, with fabulous views of the fort. It is a superb place to relax. The staff are friendly and helpful. We encountered Fifu himself many times during our stay - he is a dedicated and proud owner. He was always checking we were OK and keen to improve where possible. He also amazed us with his multilingual talents. His friendly and gentle nature was an asset to the hotel. He gave us excellent local advice on all manner of things which really helped our stay. There was definitely no pushing of tours - just a keen sense of wanting to help guests where possible. Finally the internet wifi was excellent. i would definitely recommend a stay here.
