Atmospheric colonial-style hotel
on Jan 13, 2020
There's a touch of faded grandeur about the place, but it is comfortable enough and is in a good spot close to the City Palace entrance.
The owner is a very friendly chap. He runs an efficient ship, and is always keen to please. He organised laundry and airport transport. Staff are similarly friendly. We had breakfast once during our four night stay at the hotel's outdoor restaurant. It was fine, but we preferred to venture out and eat somewhere a bit warmer!
On the minus side:
- wifi wasn't great
- security at night was often seemingly absent (or at best well hidden) and we had a few issues getting our key at bedtime.
Rangniwas is a good option for people looking for a colonial-style experience without paying through the nose.
Best hotel during our trip in India
on Jan 7, 2020
Rangniwas is a relatively small, stylish hotel in a old residence, few steps away from the City Palace entrance. It’s very central, therefore don’t expect a quiet area around it, even if at night you can rest well.
The rooms have been recently restored with a contemporary taste and good materials.
They have the best bathrooms we have found in a 3 weeks trip in India!
Breakfast is well prepared, all is cooked upon request, all fresh. It is served in the garden and they arranged some heaters to overcome the cold Winter. Heaters are available also in the rooms.
It’s the only hotel that gave us a map of the city explaining the best places to explore without asking.
The owner is a very kind person.
We would definitely recommend it!
Nice cozy place to stay

Its an old/heritage property with modern comforts. It is very well located with many attractions in walkable distance. They have swimming pool, garden and a small outdoor dining area with rooms around. Being on one of the busy roads, traffic noise could be a problem, if you are looking for quite place. Otherwise, nice place to stay at.
Gorgeous boutique hotel

The hotel is exactly as described on the website & we felt at home from the minute we arrived. A lovely garden, clean comfortable rooms, wifi is ok, aircon worked, pool and gardens are lovely and the restaurant is cheap and convenient. There are small street food vendors and stores across the road. Definitely recommend staying here
Old world charm

The Rangniwas Palace Hotel is conveniently located near to the main bazaar as well as the city palace and the lake Pichola all of which are walking distance. The place exudes an old world though the rooms have all modern amenities. The swimming pool is certainly a plus point.
