TravelPod Member ReviewsAmar Mahal Hotel Orchha
This hotel is the most expensive I have stayed in so far. The grounds are well kept and the rooms very spacious. What lets this hotel down are:
1. In a country where free wifi is everywhere they charge 100 rupee for 1 hour and if you only use 5 minutes then you do not have the opportunity to use the rest of the hour
2. Although there is hot water it is only tepid at best
3. At dinner there is no free water you must pay for it. I understand this in cheap hotels but not when you are paying $80+ a night

We then had a buffet dinner of the resulting dishes. Very tasty, but I was very aware of the amount of oil and salt called for in each recipe. Unsurprising ...
... human, dog, cow, goat and pig faeces swatting flies, trying not to get run over by various modes of transport in every direction, fending off vendors, guarding my valuables, and all this while standing in the baking hot sun. After some time....they emerged from the mud puddle and off we went to explore Orcha palace. If I'm honest, I cannot recall a word of what was said in the tour, as the heat was just overwhelming for me. We arrived at the palace at 12pm, and ...
... this before?? Charming guy really. Although we have seen many temples and structures stooped in history, it is the people and their culture and day to day life that are enriching me the most in India. Especially the Hindu way of life, it is peaceful and beautiful. Around 80% of India is Hindu and most people can speak Hindi or the local provincial language. So I haven't yet shared anything about the food here. In short, each menu has vegetarian ...
