  • To start with the first impression...the reception didn't have an AC which was very disappointing. Rooms are quite big but the ambience isn't great. Food was ok, again the dining area didn't have enough ACs to keep it cool.
  • Wonderful place. Peaceful, Relaxing! Gr8 Food and Hospitality! Only drawback not very professional!
  • Good historical hotel of Bikaner Raja Maharaja.
  • Visited this palace hotel to attend a conference. The property is really not made for such events. There were lots of foreigners staying in the hotel, so my guess is that staying there could be a different experience altogether. The palace is magnificent, very classy, artistic and modern.
  • An old palace converted into a hotel. The palace is beautiful and historic and contains a lot of memorablia from the days of the Maharajas. But the place lacks the intimacy and charm. It feels jaded and tired. The restaurant was touted as the best in Bikaner but we really did not want to sit in a dark retro looking place that lacked all character so we went elsewhere instead.

Where to stay in Bikaner

True to its desert outpost reputation, Bikaner has a wealth of simple accommodations for the many weary travelers who rest up here. Find some hotels by the main train station, and some boutique options by the parks. And, true to its reputation as a town of palaces and princely importance, you'll find some pretty luxurious and regal options here too, with some palatial hotels located to the north of town, and some slightly smaller versions right in the center.
