About this Hotel

Price From $31

A graceful colonnaded façade, latticed balconies, and interior courtyards make this heritage property a textbook example of Rajasthani colonial architecture. Built in the 1920s by its namesake, a Mumbai cotton and opium baron, Piramal Haveli has eight rooms that are done up with period furniture, ceiling frescoes, and geometric-patterned rugs. The hotel staff hosts equally old-fashioned activities like games of musical chairs and treasure hunts, as well as dinners for eight or more on the nearby desert dunes in spring and summer.

Free Wi-Fi? No; Internet access is available in the lobby for $1 an hour.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.
