Rajasthan Accommodations

Wow. We have slept in a LOT of beds in the past few weeks. And I have become incredibly inconsistent in documenting them. Probably because nice places are less interesting to write about then shit holes, and our packaged itinerary of Rajasthan found us in much more high class accommodations than we ever would have booked for ourselves.  But with a camper van in our future, we are in the hotel home stretch, so I'd hate to lose count now!

700 Rupees (approx $16)/night
Hotel New King
Delhi, India

I've already detailed our lovely hotel in Delhi.  From here, there was nowhere to go but up!

Hotel Heritage Mandawa
Mandawa, India

Here we had the pleasure of staying in an old haveli mansion that has been converted to a hotel.  It was a great place, even with the dozens of crickets who were determined to seize every opportunity to sneak under the door into our room.

Hotel Sagar
Bikaner, India

Their sign looked like this.  And their food was some of the best we've had in India.

Jaisalmer, India

I can't for the life of me remember the name of this place.  Or think of any distinguishing details about it.

Jaisalmer, India

I bet you thought it couldn't get any worse than the place we stayed in Delhi.  It can.  Our oh-so-romantic sounding camel safari in the desert ended with us sleeping in a damp, mosquito infested hut with a shoddy fan and prison beds.  I would have taken a better photo if the ceiling was high enough for me to back up any further.  The real treat was brushing your teeth in the shared outdoor sink.  Gag.

Jodhpur, India

Another name that escapes me.  We had a great breezy room though on it's own little deck with a tiny blacony overlooking the fort.

Ranakpur, India

The names of these places aren't important anyway, right?  This was a quiet, run-down little hotel in the mountain setting, and this is pretty much the scene we enjoyed during our evening visit here.

Udaipur, India

My crappy photo does not do this place justice.  It was definitely the nicest hotel we stayed in, and we liked it so much that we added an extra night.  Rooftop restaurant, room service, and a perfect location right on the lake in the center of the action.  I would highly recommend it, if I knew what it was called.

Pushkar, India

Wow.  No photos and no name.  Sorry.

Jaipur, India

Last but certainly not least.  Hotel Pink and Yellow Building with Balconies in Jaipur.
