Like a dream from the past, staying at Hotel Victoria will let you live it in the present day. A friendly hotel-provided tuk-tuk driver pointed out city/fort highlights, as we wound upward through narrow vibrant alleys. The romantic charm of this hotel is evident from the moment you walk in the door ... candle-light, incense and deep red floating rose petals. Although it feels you are in a fantasy, as you ascend to your quarters, you know this is the real thing - a carefully restored section of the fort wall, with an incredible view.
Guide books and tour guides may try to discourage you from staying within the fort, but don't miss this opportunity. The preservation of original gems like this one are only possible with the support of visitors. This hotel was a family home that has been restored in compliance with fort regulations to accommodate the needs of visitors while respecting water and environmental capacities.
Pankaj, the friendly and engaging manager will assure you are welcome and cared for by him and his staff. Breakfast on the roof top is a wonderful way to greet the day, as the action of the market below is in full progress. At night, enjoy a Thali with the sun setting and evening music of the streets.
I had the honeymoon suite with balcony and loved watching the changing scene at all hours of the day and night. It was a highlight of my trip to India and I would recommend it highly. I hope to return again.
