We were told by the hotel staff that the original palace was built by the local royal family in the 1880's and the second floor was added in the 1920's. The building is in need of repairs but it's was like stepping back in time into British India. There is a nice bar and restaurant, serving very good meals at... More

The main part of this hotel is amazing and a real step back into history. There are a number of reception rooms full of antique items and artworks that were apparently collected by relatives of the current owner. There is also a nice pool and shady veranda area at the rear. The staff are a little slow on service but... More

A lovely old hotel with extraordinary friezes throughout. The hotel is in the old town near food and spice markets. It is a small oasis with the clangour of the streets Muffled by trees and a small garden. There is a stall inside the palace grounds run by a man whose family has maintained the decorated walls for generations. Check... More

If you had seen the movie "The best exotic Marigold hotel" this is something you must live. The hotel now is old and dirty, wi fi only in the lobby, the breakfast was really nice as well as the staff, if you are able to pay a little more for the suite do it as it has AC. The area... More

It's not easy to rate this place because of the baffling mix of sumptuous surroundings and faded grandeur. The common area is beautifully decorated, including the dining room, with wall paintings, mirror work and uniformed waiters. We had one of the rooms in an annex, and although the sheets were crisp and the bathrooms spotless, the cracks and damp spots... More

I travelled with a large group of Europeans on a package holiday and could compare this hotel with others we stayed at in Rajasthan. It has loads of history but it is tired in places.

I have no words to describe the feeling of staying in an Indian palace. I felt like a princess. The whole place is very well decorated and has a charming and authentic feel to it. It's pretty and pink! The outside garden is beautiful as well as the pool in the backyard. The rooms are small but very accomodating and... More

I have stayed in The Bissau Palace twice, I love it. The Staff are amazing, remembering my favourite breakfast preference is special as it is my favourite meal of the day.
