“Don’t despair as the lanes get narrower and your taxi hoots outside shabby, unmarked wooden gates. Once in the courtyard the feeling changes. The strong design of this new hotel is stylish and modern: brand new meets ancient - seamlessly. Jaali, (sandstone fretwork panels) create structure and shade and, haveli style, the hotel rises up around the central area where now there are modern pathways and a pool. The 39 rooms and suites are all excellent, many protected from the glare of the sun by jaali shutters that fold back to reveal the Fort as you lie in bed, or in the bath. There is a rooftop restaurant from which you can peer over the walls into the city below and fort beyond. Excellent breakfast and evening cocktails. Two words: dead smart.”
