Its all about how you feel inside the property, its around 250 years old property rebuild around 100 years ago. Yes structure is bit old but as far as room and lounge are concerned, its beautiful. We stayed in maharaja and maharani chambers. I would recommend these room types, got good deal for these. Food was basic. I would suggest maintenance of property should be regular. Overall a nice stay.

I stayed here with a friend for a night in January and you get what you pay for .The building is tired with very little maintenance but could be much better if the management puts an effort.The building is located in a not so good area of Jaipur and after arrival at 4am I had to wait until 7.30am for the reception to open. On the positives the staff are very friendly and there are very friendly pets in the facility and also a heritage car. The bathrooms are all very basic and water closets are not equipped with hand so spray so better be prepared.The breakfast is served in the main restaurant which has interesting works on the walls but is not very clean .I could see lot of budget travelers use this place for a quick stopover to the next destination.

OUr party of 10 stayed a week here. Its right near the old town and the Chalpol gate. Be prepered for a lot so mess and dirty streets outside but inside it's a haven of peace behind closed gates. Staff are helpful, food service is a little slow similar to elsewhere. Buffet meals were good also a la carte menu at reasonable prices, Lunch a bit sameish cheese and tomato grilled sandwiches if you dont want curry but gain that's common. Bedrooms large and traditional. Several shops on site if you don't want to venture out but Jaipur is a greta lace to explore

Interesting decor likely not changed much since it was built. Nice pool. The rub is the actual room. The bathroom was gross. The tub was dirty and scummy. Lots of black mould around the tub. Old poorly working taps. Very unpleasant in my room. The public part of the hotel looks pretty good. Have no idea how this hotel could be rated a 4 or 5. It is not a nice place to stay

What a beautiful hotel this must have been in it's heyday, it still retains a quiet splendor of days long gone and can be seen in the public sreas such as the entrance/reception area and the dining rooms. As far as my bedroom was concerned it was furnished in worn but coolurful wooden bed and furniture with a very large shower room. Thankfully the cupboard in the room had 3 extra blankets which I certainly needed as the room was very cold but at least the mosquitos must have thought the same as there were none to be seen. The two nights we stayed there, some of the group dined in the hotel and there was a pervading smell of paraffin throughout the dining area from the oil heaters but we still had to wear our coats throughout the meal. The service and food however were excellent and very good value. I had butter chicken the first night and Chicken Biryani the second night with Chicken Sweetcorn soup as a starter both nights. Roti and chapatis, Kingfisher beer, coffee and Masala Chai were also enjoyed.

The Bissau Palace is situated in what appears to be a particularly poor area of Jaipur, with rubbish-strewn streets abounding. It was clearly once a very special place, with lots of old-world charm in evidence in the public areas. The trouble is, it looks like the entire place has literally not been touched in 40 years — everything is extremely dated, dusty, dirty, down-at-heel. The public rooms were once nice, but now hugely overdecorated in very tasteless uncoordinated styles, and as above, just plain dirty. The bedrooms are dire — very dirty (both engrained and recent), the wiring is dodgy at best, dangerous at worst. The bathrooms are horrible — my toilet had not been cleaned, the shower dribbled at best, with tiles ready to fall off the wall, the sink area black with dirt. The owner played loud music at midnight and the rooms are very far from soundproofed. Drinks from the bar came in disgustingly dirty glasses and from very dusty bottles. And breakfast was basically eggs, cold toast and cereal. This hotel could be superb (excluding the location) with some imagination and (probably) a million pounds (100 million rupees) renovation. Until then, avoid.

This is a lovely old property that is in need of some care and attention, but if you look beyond that you will see rooms that were once fabulous. I found the experience of staying here wonderful and it was my favorite hotel of all those I stayed in on my North India trip. Do not be put off by the surrounding area, once you are through the gates it seems like a different world.

We were so sad to see such a neglected property. In its heyday it would have been wonderful and one can see the remains in the form of beautifully decorated rooms which are being allowed to slowly crumble away. The library has books which are turning to dust and the bathrooms badly need updating. I just hope the family will find a way to save this jewel before it is too late.

... is an oasis of serenity in bustling Jaipur! Bissau Palace is a wonderful “worm-hole property”. By that, I mean you come down a typical gritty street, but when you pass through the entry gate into Bissau, you'll think you've gone through a worm-hole in the space-time continuum, and come out on the other side of the universe. Another world awaits you inside the gate! The lovely centuries-old palace is captivating, because despite the grandeur, I felt like I'd come home. The hospitality, service staff, and room decor made me feel like both an esteemed visitor AND a family member! Breakfast (or afternoon tea) beside the pool was so relaxing, and losing myself in a book in the library made for some much-needed “down time” after a busy day of sight-seeing. Bissau Palace is also an excellent value, especially for such an historic heritage hotel. I'll never need to look for another hotel in Jaipur; Bissau Palace has everything I look for and more, and at a great value, too.

Stayed for 7 nights and treated very well. Felt like family by the time I left. Solo female and felt very comfortable at the hotel.Basic breakfast was included. Drivers available through the hotel that speak English. I found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly. Good central location. Highly recommended.
