Pushkar diaries {feat. Treebo}

By 09:55 Thursday 26 October 2017 , , ,

2017 has been really great, travel-wise. October marked my fifth trip to Rajasthan this year and second one to Pushkar. I always wanted to see the hustle-bustle and the colours of this hipster town during the Camel Fair and I did get a glimpse of it, though the full fledged festivities will begin in November. I went with my mom and we both acted like typical tourists for three whole days- insane shopping, lots of eating and just plain chilling. Since all my trips are budget trips {just one of the many problems that come with being unemployed}, I had been looking at affordable stay options for a while and finally decided on Hotel Pushkar Legacy by Treebo.

Treebo is a popular budget hotel chain {and one of the largest}  that offers good quality accommodation options at pocket-friendly prices. Currently, it has over 300 properties in 50 Indian cities. Hotel Pushkar Legacy, from the looks of it, seemed fairly new and quite promising. The amply sunlit lounge area complete with a humble chandelier was my favourite section of the hotel. 

The front facade of the property is given a haveli-like feel with the use of pillars and jharokas and has a small garden attached to it. I booked a Deluxe room which had a double bed but was spacious enough for a group of four. Compared to other budget hotels I've stayed in, this was one of the most impressive in terms of amenities, amount of space and design. The deluxe rooms come with a small balcony {for you to sip your morning chai while taking in the view of the Aravallis}, a nice bathroom and a small wardrobe room with the closet and dresser. While the rooms are already equipped with everything one might need, the hotel staff is pretty attentive and prompt in their service. 

We also had a couple of our meals at the in-house restaurant which by the way, serves great breakfast {buffet included in tariff} as well as North Indian and Chinese food. While Pushkar has plenty of nice cafes to choose from, there were times when we were too tired to step out and opted to stay in for our meals and didn't regret it. 

Overall, things are kept pretty simple at Treebo Pushkar Legacy. You will get everything that you need and expect from a budget hotel and a wee bit more. I was super impressed by the overall hospitality standards and the courtesy displayed by the staff. I am now officially a #TreeboTripper and definitely recommend you become one too!

Tariff: INR 3500-5500 depending on room category and season. More info here.
