We stayed at Orchha Residency for 1 night. We enjoyed amazing view of Jahangir Mahal from the roof. Service is quite well. We were a team of 17 people. The manager helped us with his best. I recommend the hotel to the tourists.

We were in orchha residency last week of jan2014. Hotel rooms and toilet are unhyginic. Drainage
smell in toilet. we three of us got infection. the orchha residency is dirty hotel. Pls. don't to book this hotel in orchha.
We got to Orchha during the day and spent almost 1:30 trying to find a decent hotel. Orchha is a small town and all the hotels are near but they are all mediocres. We stumbled into this hotel by chance and we decided to stay. The bedroom is big with a big bed, clean, everything we asked were provided (more bedsheets, more blankets), hot water 24 hours because the heater is inside the room and you can control it, they do not have electricity generator (this is very important in India). The bathroom is a wet (it means there are no separation and when you have a shower everything gets wet) but has shower and was clean with tiles. The bedroom has normal TV with English channels and wi-fi was possible in the room. The hotel is one block from the main road and it is quiet and dark so we could sleep very well. We had dinner at the hotel just once; The price is ok but the food lacks tastefulness. Orchha is a small town so everything is at walkable distance.
We payed US$ 15 with wi-fi.
Frankly, we got stuck in Orchha owing to some confusion with somewhere else, and this hotel was a last minute and arbitrary choice late at night. I'll say straight away that the 'decor' is, well, unfortunate, and first impressions are not exactly favourable. That said, Orchha a delightful village positively crammed with architectural gems in itself has something of the feel of India during the 1970's before it was, as they say, 'developed' to adapt to the same monotonously uniform style of everywhere else. For the conventional tourist this is not the place anyway, I don't think there are any five star hotels and that sort of thing. For the rest, who wish to explore and wander about rather than sit around swimming pools or in cocktail lounges, decor and appearance hardly matter so long as the accommodation is clean, there's ample hot water, helpful and polite attendance, and in my case readily available wi-fi, and in those respects this hotel satisfied quite well enough. Abid, the manager, positively falls over backwards to do everything he can and more, running up substantial meals to order and providing all sorts of interesting local information.
Thumbs down, though, for prices - too expensive for what it is. Money has been ridiculously wasted on ugly 'modernization' and then passed onto clients when as a simple lodging-house it would be both more attractively in setting and better value.
