This is an incredible property, a palace right out of a storybook. Each of the rooms has its own unique character so you could come back again and again hoping to get a different room each time. Marble floors throughout!
This hotel got all the details right. Nice in-room toiletries; the softest towels I have found in any hotel in India so far (they tend to be scratchy), big-screen TV in an ornamental wooden case to match the period decor. Also the only place in India so far that I've seen an actual bathtub rather than toilet and shower sharing a room with a drain in the middle. Minibar and laundry service. The Wifi is free and it kept kicking my computer off every few minutes but when it was working it was fast. The rooms aren't as private as they could be (a door with large glass panes separates you from the hallway; voices go right through the glass and echo off the marble, so anyone outside can hear your phone conversation), but what can you do in a historic place like this? It is beautiful.
The staff were extremely helpful and efficient. The swimming pool area is gorgeous. I really hope to be able to return someday because I feel I left a piece of my heart here!
