Our family spent a night at the Ranbanka hotel and loved it. The hotel is an oasis of calm in a noisy city. Though overlooked by tall buildings on one side, the lawns in front of the hotel are beautiful and make for a lovely setting at dinnertime. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious, with excellent bathrooms - the best we say in an extended North India tour! The restaurant is very good, both the choices for dinner and breakfast, and for the very attentive service of the waitstaff. Mr. Bhavani, the manager, was very solicitous of our comfort and needs. The one very significant drawback is that, unlike every hotel we stayed in, the internet was not free, and had to be paid for on an hourly basis. Quite tacky, given the luxury surroundings!
There is a row of shops outside the hotel within walking distance where there is pretty decent silver jewellery. We went into town and found the prices and selection comparable to that available at these shops. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the airport.
