Bhanwar Niwas is in a really weird location - you have to go through some small alleys that look a bit shady. By the time we got to the hotel, we were wondering if we had made a good choice. We were therefore stunned when we entered the hotel. It is in an astonishingly beautiful old "haveli". The room was huge - over 1000 sq ft - and beautifully furnished. In any other hotel, it would be called a suite. There was plenty of HOT water, which had been a problem for us in some other hotels in Rajasthan. On the whole, a highly recommended hotel. I would stay in it again without a question.
Approach of the hotel is pathetic. Over all the hotel is excellent. Dining option was awesome. Room alloted was spacious and very beautifully maintained. Service was quick and prompt. Staff was very friendly and polite to work.

The hotel is grand once you enter it but getting there may mean walking through a filthy road for a fair distance because cars have difficulty reaching the hotel. It is owned and managed by the Rampuria family who have been here for generations and converted it into a hotel. Unfortunately, hospitality was completely lacking. They didnt have our reservation registered when we arrived despite an email confirmation from the owners several weeks earlier. There was no drinking water provided and we had to ask for it. Similarly, there is no complimentary tea/coffee maker in the rooms. The bathroom fittings were poorly maintained, toiletries of cheap quality (small ayurveda soap bar) and towels also were old. Wifi didnt work on the second day. The restaurant has a very limited range of veg food for the breakfast buffet and similarly dinner is highly over-priced with a few items on the buffet. I would not recommend this property to anyone, unless the owners demonstrate more hospitality and higher standards of cleanliness
Very nice building and large room. But in the room only two sockets at very unconvenient location. WiFi the slowest I ever faced only in public areas. Food very expensive. Breakfast no eggs. Room very cold. A/C can cool only. We asked for a heater and got one (than only one socket available). Shower very poor, meed to wait long time for hot water, very weak stream.
Bhanwar Niwas was offered to us when the hotel where we had originally booked was full of a marriage party. We were a little sceptical because of the location of the place. An old haveli converted into a hotel where the owners themselves live on the upper floor. The only minus being the reachability of the place through winding lanes at times just enough for the car to scrape through. A very beautiful haveli , with amazing carvings . Huge, comfortable rooms with an Indo European interiors tastefully done. Little minuses-- Toiletries are minimum just a bar of soap and 2 shampoo satchets. Had to really cajole for a tea kettle in the room. They have an almost set menu for breakfast and dinner. We stayed for 2 days and it was eating almost the same menu both days. All veg menu is available. Wonderful staff who cater to every need in the dining hall. Mainly caters to foreigners who just stay for a night and push off the next morning. But overall a good experience
We were very excited to arrive at this beautiful haveli but were immediately disappointed by the lukewarm welcome. We were given a password for wifi but later found that this network had not been working for sometime. Our room was very large but both heaters were not working and this was the first hotel we have stayed in where there was not a complementary bottle of water which we would expect for the price paid. Dinner was again in a stunning venue but we were disappointed by the limited option of meals on the al a carte menu (we did not want the buffet.) Our waiter was lovely but we found it incredibly strange that the owner of the hotel and his family sat down to a completely different (and fantastic looking meal.) Very poor in comparison with other places (and cheaper!) in Rajasthan.
We were impressed with the room we were given at this hotel, it is in the old city of Bikaner which is a tuk tuk ride through narrow streets or a very intrepid driver to access the hotel. Our room was not set up for three guests but a bed was brought very quickly and made up for us. We enjoyed some snacks in the courtyard and the service was good. Later we were told that we would only be able to have the buffet dinner and no a la carte menu was available. The buffet was a set price, expensive for the quality of food which was not very good. Whilst the hotel setting was lovely and it obviously carries a history, we were a bit uncomfortable when we looked around the property as we were continuously encouraged to come into the hotel shop to purchase 'quality' items. On check out we discovered that breakfast had a charge attached, and no complimentary water which was the first of the 9 other hotels we had stayed in.
