A unique venue which is totally charming. A piece of Ahmedabad’s history which remains authentic. Coupled with welcoming staff it is to be recommended to anyone who would like a feel for 19th century India.

We spent a week here and fell in love with the Old World charm of this historic bungalow. It is super well located – an oasis in a busy area, rich in avid Indian street life. We stayed in the romantic Siraj Khana suite with its draped window alcoves and spacious lounge above, looking out over the central courtyard. The staff were super helpful with both our needs within the hotel and interests beyond its walls. We loved all the different areas the bungalow provided for relaxing in within a boutique-sized property. Be sure to wander the small lanes & alleys nearby – resident neighbours are super friendly in this vibrant neighbourhood which offers a brilliant insight into authentic Indian street life. Divan's Bungalow is a perfect spot from which to explore Ahmedabad's Old City and feel like you have a welcome home to return to with all the charms of a bygone era.

I stayed for one week here in 2012, and it felt like my own home for that time. The staff will take care of any need, I had photocopying done, items I wanted to purchase delivered... it was regal treatment. The food was fantastic, simple home-cooked delicious local fare. All the rooms are marvellously exotic to me, I love the family history on display, the cool ambience of the living areas hung with innumerable beautiful light fittings, and the tranquillity of the suite I had. Only the bathroom was modern, which is a plus.
The locality of the Bungalow in the Old City is fantastic, the true India greets you the instant you walk out of the gate.
Can't wait to visit again.

Un très rare expérience ___ un lien magnifique ! Nous avons ausse beaucoup aime le cuisine, varie et raffinée. Nous reviendrons !
A very soothing, cooling, and exclusive place. This makes you feel special, an art-de-vivre that is revived to perfection. A warm and discreet hospitality that reflects a bygone era. It is really stepping into another world ! The food was very delicate and felt home-cooked.
The cottages are set in a lichee orchard running alongside a silvery sand beach giving way to the aquamarine waters of the Ganges. One can spend hours sitting on the quiet beach, watching river terns and cormorants skimming the water to spot mahaseer, followed by an energising…dip in the holy waters. For those who prefer more solitude, there is a private spring for luxurious indulgence. A barbecue on the beach is the perfect finale.
Kesroli and Piramal Haveli espouse the now well-known standards of Neemrana Hotels. They have been restored with respect and maintain their original character. So, while you can expect comfort and luxury, don’t expect mod-con manifestations. And why should you? The idea is to get away from it all in the first place.
Thank you to everyone for the lovely care and a memorable stay.
As a place and tranquil space away from Delhi, the Pataudi Palace is unique. The remarkable attention and non-attention (when one wants to be left alone) is a skill perfected by the Neemrana staff. I am spoilt by the treatment, and will certainly return.
Neemrana is, in my humble opinion, the 'Fort of all Forts', as I do believe that there isn't and cannot be another like it.
