When i asked, why this illegal charges despite Supreme Court order that *bottled* water has to be supplied at the printed MRP or less. Funny...

Both Lonely Planet and Le Routard describe this place as palatial and luxurious. Maybe it was when their reviewers visited a decade or two ago. But today, it's rubbed down, worn out and anything but luxurious. In our room, one of the best according to Le Routard, the Windows did not close properly and the screens covering the smaller openings...

Location of this hotel is amazing. It is right in the fort. Some rooms of the fort are converted into guest roms and main hall of the palace serves as reception and restaurant. In general services are good and courteous being a government hotel. Breakfast can be ordered as per menu card, but if you ask for one more paratha...

This is MP govt Hotel. Previously it was the place for Royal guest of the Kings. Now converted into a hotel. We tried Maharani sweet. Room was very Clean and Good view of the Orchha City/Temple side. A must stay for Heritage lover. There are only 5 rooms.

I stayed in Maharaja Suit, I like it because of many reasons. It gives you and your kids a feel of how royal families lived their life. The View, ambience, built is great. Sitting in Balcony while enjoying your drinks in evening, with tasty snacks & good service by staff. In mornings enjoy the palaces & temples.

23 July, 2016. The Sheesh Mahal is a Heritage Hotel co-located with the Jahangir Mahal, in the Orchha fort complex. From what we remember, there were 8 rooms. We had not made any hotel reservation before getting to Orchha (we were coming in from Gwalior), and when we reached there, all rooms were booked out. We were a bit disappointed,...

I spent one day at Orccha before completing the MP tour. I booked Maharaja and Maharani suite which are huge and magnificent. Maharani suite is situated on the ground floor which is suitable for aged people like my mother in my case. Maharaja suite is situated on the top floor. The entire top floor is dedicated to the maharaja suite....

This is a hunting lodge that was converted into a hotel. The terrace gives you a fantastic view of the Jahangir Mahal and the rest of the city. My friends and I even managed to catch part of the light show from the terrace. Service can be slow especially with food, but the staff is courteous. If you're travelling in...
