Amar Mahal Hotel
Travel Blogs from Orchha
I seem to be on the mend, had a great night sleep and feeling ready to see the sights of Orchha. The driver picks us up at 930 and we head to the palaces. The palaces date from 17th century, they are massive structures, approx 25 meters high. The stairs are very steep with no consistency in rise. It is like doing step-ups at the gym for hours. If I …
After a dreadful night, I was up about 10 times with diarrhoea and leg cramps , we headed off at 6am to Panna Tiger Reserve. In the back of a jeep with only soft sides, the wind blowing in, it was freezing for the 30 minutes drive. We reached the Tiger reserve and started our safari. Unfortunately there were no tigers to be found today only some …
We headed to Orcha today by car but not before our friends came and said good-bye to us!
Our drive to Orcha was very nice, again the scenery is beautiful and you are always passing through a small village or town or there is something happening on the side of the road so you don't have time to get bored. Plus the continuous dodging of …
ON THE TRAIN FROM JALGAON TO JHANSI.
After one night at the Royal Palace Hotel in Jalgaon, which has neither seen royalty nor is

relieved to see …

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
