The Palace Hotel, earlier known as Bikaner house is a luxurious heritage hotel in Rajasthan's sole hill station, Mount Abu. It is the restored summer residence of the royal family of Bikaner. The architectural marvel was built in 1893 by Maharaja Ganga Singhji and designed by the renowned architect, Sir Swinton Jacob.

The Palace Hotel is set in midst of vast grounds surrounded by tranquil hills. The hotel enjoys one of the best locations in Mount Abu and was visited regularly by the Maharaja and the royal family. In 1962, Maharaja Karni Singhji of Bikaner decided to convert the royal residence into a hotel. Keeping alive the heritage of the Maharajas, guests are treated to a royal living.
