              beautiful palace”

              this palace is lovely. the rooms are large, well laid out, and very comfortable. The staff was helpful and nice. it's in a good location in Jaipur, which is a NOT a walkable city. the area around the hotel is not that nice, but you are quick quickly in good central locations within minutes. small complaint that at the rate one pays for even a standard room, breakfast should be included, no question, this was disappointing. otherwise a great stay.

              A quiet oasis in the hurly burly of Jaipur”

              I found the hotel to be a real delight. The walls of both the common rooms and guest rooms are painted with murals. It sits in a quiet courtyard. Just outside is gate to the Pink City, and the madness that is Jaipur. The travel agent attached to the hotel can arrange travel for you at a very fair price.

              The haveli is beautiful, the rooms immediately gave a grandiose feeling as you enter, the location is a bit hard to find as there are narrow roads and the navigation shows the backside of the haveli. The locks needs to be change for bathrooms though.

              Lovely Heritage Hotel”

              For the price we paid, the hotel offered great value. The room, Bishan Chamber, is relatively clean and definitely spacious, and was connected to a small courtyard area with a swing. The compound offers plenty of areas to relax and chill, be it by the poolside, the lounge, the front courtyard, or simple anywhere with a chair (trust me, there are plenty around). The hotel is a short walk from the City Walls and a local market. There're loads of food options if you'd like to venture out for a little adventure. Finally, the staff were all friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to Jaipur!

              design, atmosphere, comfort, and friendly service

              my arrival at the bissau palace was exciting. late at night, the hotel sent its indian car, the “ambassador" to pick me up at the train station. despite my fatigue, i was dazzled when i was shown the colorful and ornate room that i would be staying in. and just outside the archway to the opulent lobby, a festive "campfire" was burning, surrounded by fun-loving guests and the owner. i was welcomed with indian rum, supper, and lively conversation which lasted almost until dawn. breakfast was served in one of the most beautiful dining rooms in india, with bright figurative paintings adorning the walls. each day, the hotel’s car and driver provided me with a tour of jaipur’s fantastic sights, at a reasonable cost. like all rajasthan hotel rooms, it was chilly at night (in january), so ask the front desk for a space heater. overall, i had a wonderful stay at this atmospheric hotel which provides a great welcome and excellent service to guests.

              We arrived and had a good reception and were asked to sit whilst our details were taken. We were shown to our roomwithin 5 minutes which was more like a suite than a room. The room was large with good linen, large bathroom and had its own balcony. Good sized windows lead out onto the driveway with lots of trees. Monkeys were a problem but keep the front door cflosed of your room and all is ok. Staff atreception, dining room were very friendly and professional and room staff ,kept the room very clean.

              Trade off convenience for quaintness: step back in time LITERALLY”

              Though closish to Pink City, Bissau is in a dirty, crowded, smelly area. The rooms are quaint, unique, interesting. However, given that getting a SIM card in India is an impossible, standing joke, the poor, unreliable wifi at Bissau made life impossible. Again, despite the charm of the dining area, breakfast was rudimentary and the service haphazard. The room lacked conveniences, despite being unusual. No jug. No safe. No cups. No tea or coffee. Only warm water available from the cantankerous and harried kitchen staff. The Bissau is making a fortune from cooing, purring, admiring tour groups. Sure, take a step back in time, feel it alluring. Lose all modern convenience and facility. Don't go WALKING out of the hotel unless you want to be overwhelmed by danger, stench and crush. A cooey, quiet, disconnected, backward haven in the midst of chaos. Poor value for money. A disaster for us. Stay in east Jaipur instead.

              Bissau palace was a lovely place to stay in Jaipur. The beautiful grounds are set back from the hectic roads outside so a good place to escape the chaos. Our room was fairly simple but clean with a good bathroom. It was like a small detached apartment, away from the main hotel lobby and restaurant

              It is unfortunate to get a room in the annex, without Wifi, full of mosquitoes... for the price! The toilet was leaking, there is a lack of proper maintenance in this old room.

              We initially booked the hotel for three nights but decided to stay one day longer. We stayed in "honeymoon suite" - lovely decorated room with bathroom surrounded by little garden just in front of the hotel. Buffet breakfast was excellent with choice of food including juices and fruits. Staff was helpful and if they could not answer immediately, willing to phone and find out more. The location is great as well - far away from busy street (meaning very quiet) yet within short walking distance from Pink City. Highly recommended.

              if you want stay at old house in Jaipur. But location is so sucks. It is located near the market whenever I passed it I alway saw the butcher killed chickens. And I could smell blood :( and the interior is very old. That's the reason the room is too dark. And sometimes i was scared because of portrait on the wall. If you wan to use wifi you should go the lobby. Wifi is very weak and slow.

              Almost 250 year old building, Nearest to Walled city, Quiet compound with birds & peacock chirps.

              Excellent overall, Nepali staff were really helpful and simple. The painter who sells hand painting as well as does wall paintings at hotel could narrate history well. One of the road from Chandpole gate to hotel via Masjid (Mosque) is butchers area. If soft hearted take other road farther from Chandpole gate from behind. Once inside its an old world charm and excellent stay.

              We loved this hotel. The decor is amazing and the staff are friendly. It feels very safe and has someone on the gate at all times. The pool was not open during our stay, so I can't comment on that, but the food was fine and the accompanying music was entertaining. There is a travel agent on site, who can book taxis, tours etc if you need it and also a little shop for postcards etc. It is the most welcoming Hotel and even has a St Bernard dog! There is information in the Rooms about yoga and massage treatments, but we didn't try these out!

              Service with a smile at wonderful old palace”

              A beautifully decorated haven of peace, which offers a nice food menu, drinks and a swimming pool

              Pros: Complimentary Train Station pick up (for Agoda bookings only, so make sure they don't add it to your bill in error...) Beautiful old palace chock a block with frescoes, pictures, paintings, jewellery, books and more Restaurant (buffet breakfast included)/Bar (an alcohol license is expensive, so a beer or G&T is not always a given a any hotel) Very pleasant and helpful staff Overall a haven of peace Cons: Unfortunately the swimming pool was not always very clean, but following our feedback, I believe this will no longer be an issue.

              Palace experience. Hands on staff.”

              Tranquil garden location very close to Pink City.

              This hotel enjoys palace grandeur without all the starch of 5 star. From our arrival we enjoyed communicative service from very pleasant staff, we were made very welcome by the friendly reception and were soon enjoying the gardens and pool. All very attractive after a dusty hot day sight seeing in the Pink City. The room was more than we anticipated in size with a beautiful veranda, all facilities inside room were very comfortable.The whole experience of Bissau Palace was relaxed and comfortable very welcome indeed.
