This 280-year-old royal haveli (traditional, ornately decorated residence), set around three courtyards – one with a tinkling fountain – is a fascinating hotel with a highly regarded restaurant. The raw sandstone rooms have arched stone ceilings and the ambience of a medieval castle. They are sumptuously and romantically decorated. The common areas come with all the Rajput trimmings, including swing chairs and antiques.
Although centrally located, the hotel is set back from the road and the stone walls ensure a peaceful sleep.
