Laxmi Niwas Palace: Sleep in the maharajah’s bed!
Well, not his bed, but in his palace, in a big bed, in a big room, and enjoy the exotic architecture of a Rajasthani palace. Not exactly an old historical palace as this was built in 1902 by Lord Swinton Jacob, in a “Anglo-scenic” style, a blend of Rajput and European architecture and decoration for Maharajah Ganga Singhi.
Lord Mountbatten, Queen Mary and lots of other dignitaries or celebrities stayed here, and now Kokoryko was here too!! (haha)!
Arriving at this palace, you are welcomed by guards in traditional dress, and all is done to make you feel like a real VIP (which, for the price you pay, you may not expect), you can choose your room, when several are available, a butler helps you making yourself comfortable, etc, etc. . . and all usual amenities you expect from an international standard hotel (except Internet connection, but when I travel, I forget about “modern” world!). Breakfast was great.
And, last, but not least, you can visit this palace (which was a palace, before being “converted” into a hotel), discover the wonderful architecture, the exquisite stone carvings of this building (other tip).
