  • The external grandeur belies a faded interior

    by JLEBTeddington on 2019-11-16 010:44 pm

    I was disappointed in this seemingly grand palace. The rooms were gigantic but very tired and faded, and rather scruffy furnishings. As far as I could see none had any windows, being in the former harem female quarters,thus rendering the rooms dark and claustrophobic despite their immense size. The hotel had no outside amenities other than a vast lawn in front, used for weddings etc and a pool teeming with pigeons and none too clean. Only two sunbeds for such a vast edifice - why ?
    The food was ok but expensive, accompanied in the evening by some very gifted musicians and dancers - a nice touch.
    Vast courtyards upstairs but with no views or terrace furniture. Old room service dishes, left behind pillars etc....
    Definitely in need of a serious update and tighter management.

  • A Truly ROYAL Experience

    by AbhimanyuSinghi on 2019-11-13 00:33 am

    Laxmi Niwas is the former palace of the royal family of Bikaner. The entire royal property is split into 3 parts - Lalgarh, Laxmi Niwas and the private residence of the king. Both Lalgarh and Laxmi Niwas are now being used as heritage hotels / marriage resorts.

    We stayed at Laxmi Niwas for 2 nights in early November for a wedding in the family. The place will wow you with its architecture, grandiose rooms and the truly royal vibes. Rooms are on the expensive side but more than worth it. The place was not designed for hotel rooms to start with so you might find some of the room locations slightly odd and the shapes of the rooms inside maybe weird. But once inside the room, you will not regret shelling out the extra bucks.

    Special shout out for Room 104 - which we used for the Groom. The room is huge - has its own dining table with antique cutlery, a royal swing and opens out to the swimming pool. Some room amenities might feel dated but then I guess it is difficult to maintain such huge heritage properties, more so considering the fact that you don't want to change too much of the interiors.

    Some of the internal and external carvings, hand paintings and decor are to die for. The front lawns are big enough to host a wedding with gathering upwards of 4-5000. The main courtyard is fantastic for smaller events. The rooms starting with 400 are on the terrace and you get a good sighting of entire Bikaner from there. Apart from the view, the cool breeze makes the terrace an ideal place for an early morning cuppa or a late nighter.

    Absolutely loved the place. And would definitely want to return for a more private and relaxed visit sooner than later.

  • Feel Royal

    by DrKlair on 2019-10-21 09:58 am

    Stayed here on 13th and 14 October as a part of a wedding function .The hotel indeed gives you a royal feeling. Huge rooms and very tastefully decorated corridors with traditional Rajasthani paintings and pictures showcasing the royal family The hotel staff in the traditional dress add to the ambience

  • This place is the closest to a âonce in a lifetime â experience you can get.

    I stayed sat this hotel for a week in a "historical" room. A week wasn't long enough, but was sufficient to leave a lasting memory! I stayed for work but would like to come back with my children.
    I made friends with Surendra and the restaurant manager (I am not sure of the spelling of his name), the chefs, and manager; they took excellent care of me and I felt very comfortable. The rooms are incredible, in the morning you can hear the sounds of the peacocks!
    The good is indescribable! Locally there are camel rides, shops, festivals, and forts. This place is a must to experience.

  • Live Life King Size

    by StrangersTraveller on 2019-05-29 00:00 am

    Experience the ultimate luxury and royal life kings used to have in the earlier times by staying in the Palace known as Laxmi Niwas. It still has the same charm and aura of the earlier times and a must in the list when you are in Bikaner.
