The view from bathroom is beautiful. From Maharani suite one can see the light and sound show right from the comfort of the room. The furniture and decor...

Although a state run MP tourist hotel this is a great place to stay. We were with friends and stayed in the Maharajah and Maharani rooms. Beautiful, great bathrooms and a wonderful loo with a view. Orchha is relaxing and very interesting palace and mahals. Lots to see. Food was hit or miss. The bill will include local taxes which...

The location of Sheesh Mahal is hard to top: luxurious suites of enormous size (Maharaja and Maharani) and equipped with original furniture, bathrooms with XXL-marble tub plus the famed "loo with a view". The Sound and Light show can be watched straight from the window of Maharani Suite since its facade is part of the "stage" during the performance. Sadly,...

This hotel offers palace accommodation on a budget. The rooms are full of antiques and have great character. They are comfortable and well equipped. The restaurant is good, particularly the parathas for breakfast. Wi-Fi signal not strong in the rooms, but ok at reception

After looking at the menu we decided to have a quick drink and return later for dinner. The prices were actually quite reasonable and service , for drinks, was fast and the waiter was very...

Sheesh Mahal. Small portion of Jahangir palace converted into Hotel. Real Royal stay if you prefer to stay in Maharaja or Maharani Suit. Standard rooms are also good enough. Among all the standard rooms try taking room no. 6. I advise all fellow travellers to make sure you do not take Room No. 3. This is adjacent to Restaurant public...

I was at Jehangir Fort, when i visited the Hotel to buy a bottle of water. For an One Ltr water bottle, i was asked to pay Rs 40, against the MRP of Rs 15. 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...
