Travel site Tripadvisor has announced its Travelers' Choice Awards for 2012. The awards, based on feedback received from travelers all over the world, include the Top 25 Heritage Hotels in India.

Not surprisingly, the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur occupies number one position on the list. Often referred to as the "Jewel of Jaipur", it's frequently voted the best hotel in India and the world. Also not surprising, 18 out of the 25 top heritage hotels are located in Rajasthan, particularly Jaipur and Jodhpur. It's quite unexpected, and pleasing, to see that a couple of hotels from Alleppey (gateway to the Kerala backwaters) have made the list too.

Here's how the list looks:

  1. Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
  2. Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
  3. Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
  4. Jaiwana Haveli, Udaipur (budget)
  5. Samode Palace, Jaipur
  6. Ratan Vilas, Jodhpur
  7. Emerald Isle - The Heritage Villa, Alleppey
  8. Rohet Garh, Rohet
  9. KTDC Lake Palace, Thekkady
  10. Usha Kiran Palace, Gwalior
  11. Samode Haveli, Jaipur
  12. Roopangarh Fort, Kishangarh
  13. Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel, Udaipur
  14. Brunton Boatyard, Kochi
  15. Gajner Palace Hotel, Bikaner
  16. The Gateway Hotel Ramgarh Lodge, Jaipur
  17. Naila Bagh Palace, Jaipur
  18. The House of MG, Ahmedabad
  19. Ajit Bhawan, Jodhpur
  20. Jai Mahal Palace, Jaipur
  21. Raheem Residency, Alleppey
  22. Diggi Palace, Jaipur
  23. Madhuban Hotel, Jaipur (mid range)
  24. Umaid Mahal, Jaipur (mid range)
  25. Connaught House, Mount Abu

Agree or disagree? Which heritage hotels do you think deserve to be in the top 25?
