I was a solo female traveler, which made me nervous about staying in a local homestead. The staff was super friendly and made certain I was looked after and safe. They arranged for airport pick-up and for a driver to take me to the fort and then "downtown" for dinner to Pal Haveli which they recommended and was a fabulous place to watch the lights change over the fort. ATM is right outside the gates of the hotel so you can feel safe pulling money out. Staff was nice to cook breakfast for friends who stopped by to pick me up. Wifi does not work well in the room but there are plenty of comfortable couches and tables in the main room with access to plugs. Wifi signal was strong and I was able to Skype. I was there in December so rooms were chilly but they gave me an extra blanket and I slept warm.
