view web site ›'s insider take:

Accommodations in Jaipur's Old City are thin on the ground, which makes the Bissau Palace, situated just outside the Chandpole Gate and within walking distance of the city's major sights, all the more welcome an option. The Muslim quarter has a bustling market lined with meat stalls, and though it's not for the fainthearted, it provides an exhilarating slice of everyday life in the Old City. By contrast, the verdant grounds of this 51-room hotel just beyond its gates are a haven of peace set within a slightly faded heritage property. Don't assume the higher-priced larger rooms are best; some of the cheaper ones are not only excellent value, but in many cases they are more aesthetically pleasing. Guests less disposed to sleeping under the frozen stare of a stuffed tiger's head or within firing distance of a wall-mounted bayonet might also be a little picky about exactly which quarters to opt for. As a rule, choose a room closest to the reception area, since they appear to be the freshest off the renovation list, with lively murals and heavy wooden furniture. Ground-floor rooms tend to be cooler than the higher ones during the hot season. A plus of this property is the popular lounging area around the pool. A downside is the breakfast buffet, which will leave you wishing you ordered à la carte.—Vanessa Able
