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

Another early start today so we could catch a train to Jhansi. The journey was 5 hours and surprisingly easy/comfy. We even had "meals on wheels" delivered. Literally. Jhansi wasn't our final destination, we had a 40 minute tuk tuk ride to Orchha which was a great way to see the countryside. On the way we visited a place where they turn linen scraps into paper. One woman's job was literally to sit on the paper squeezing out ...
Well, as a matter of fact, there is !! Orchha is a little piece of heaven in central India ! A little bit lost, there are barely any cars, mostly motorcycle but oh joy, no honking !

It was just the perfect setting ! We ...
After gazing for hours and still dreaming about the Taj Mahal, it's already time to move on South to the little town of Orchha ! A not very well known place in India but the photos we got to see were enough to get us excited !! But first thing first, we need to get there and all I can say is that 2 of my worst nightmares are colliding at the same time ! I'm on boiled rice and water if you know what I mean... And we have a 3 hours train ride ahead of ...
... from our time in the car and were ready to experience the town.
Our first stop on the tour was the Orchha Palace, the seat of the king of Orchha for several generations. The complex of the palace was absolutely massive and the architecture itself was a very interesting blend of Mughal (Islamic) and local Hindu architecture. The palace consisted of several large buildings, serving as public and private audience halls as well as ...
... beautiful frescoes in the rooms and fantastic views of the countryside including the huge bend in the river which we had a white water ride on a rib later in the day. Another visit for lunch to the local cafe watching the world go by before we returned home to the hotel for a well earned beer. In the evening we all went to a local family for an Indian cooking demonstration and had a delicious meal and the recipes! Then it was off to the railway station for an overnight train to ...
