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.

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.
Hidden in the bylanes, it turned out to be a great choice. Thanks to the staff and owner, we got guided by a rickshaw to the hotel as it would have been very difficult to reach on our own. Parked our SUV on the street with a watchman to look after it. Roamed around all of Bikaner in the same rickshaw. Staff was courteous, we got the best room, tasty vegetarian food, loads of photo opportunities as its been preserved by the owners very well with. Log of family photographs dating back in history. Would definitely recommend. The only challenge as I have written in detail is to get there and the parking and you are in for a lovely holiday.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. The furniture is antique but it is not old and the decoration is very nice ( for that type of place)But the staff was rude with us and they didn't help us despite I was ill. If for that my rate is not better. And I remember that no was easy arrive by car.
Also called as the Rampuria hotel by the locals this is a well-preserved haveli located within the old walled city. It quite close to the 2 temples within the city walls and a short walk to the railway station area where the market is located. Haveli itself is well-preserved. The living room and the reading room are preserved as is and open for residents to sit in and sink in the charm. Reminds you of the days gone by and how the well to do lived. Open courtyard with a bar at the night. Rooms: Got the royal room. Giant green color themed room with a high painted ceiling, stained glass windows, old switches and massive bed that could sleep 3 easily! Bathroom was more modern with a good shower throwing out good hot water Dining: Common dining room for all guests again preserved as is with a fixed menu. Food was homely and service was excellent. Special thanks to Ujjwal (who has been working there for 25 years now). He took me around the old city in the night and showed me both the temples. Even bought me a glass of hot milk from the oldest such vendor in town! Overall: Highly recommended. The cost of the rooms, the character and quality of this place make this is a hidden gem.
Stayed at the Bhanwar Niwas for one night as we explored the city. The room was huge, high ceilings, antique furniture and a large, comfortably firm bed. The location is great - nestled within the old city walls and a short stroll from the spice markets and large Jain temple. The rooms open out onto the picturesque courtyard which was pleasant to sit in during the early evening. Just a shame that guests are not allowed to venture onto the private rooftop terrace which would be a wonderful place to watch the sunset over Bikaner with a drink.
