Its all about how you feel inside the property, its around 250 years old property rebuild around 100 years ago. Yes structure is bit old but as far as room and lounge are concerned, its beautiful. We stayed in maharaja and maharani chambers. I would recommend these room types, got good deal for these. Food was basic. I would suggest maintenance of property should be regular. Overall a nice stay.
I stayed here with a friend for a night in January and you get what you pay for .The building is tired with very little maintenance but could be much better if the management puts an effort.The building is located in a not so good area of Jaipur and after arrival at 4am I had to wait until 7.30am for the reception to open. On the positives the staff are very friendly and there are very friendly pets in the facility and also a heritage car. The bathrooms are all very basic and water closets are not equipped with hand so spray so better be prepared.The breakfast is served in the main restaurant which has interesting works on the walls but is not very clean .I could see lot of budget travelers use this place for a quick stopover to the next destination.
OUr party of 10 stayed a week here. Its right near the old town and the Chalpol gate. Be prepered for a lot so mess and dirty streets outside but inside it's a haven of peace behind closed gates. Staff are helpful, food service is a little slow similar to elsewhere. Buffet meals were good also a la carte menu at reasonable prices, Lunch a bit sameish cheese and tomato grilled sandwiches if you dont want curry but gain that's common. Bedrooms large and traditional. Several shops on site if you don't want to venture out but Jaipur is a greta lace to explore
Interesting decor likely not changed much since it was built. Nice pool. The rub is the actual room. The bathroom was gross. The tub was dirty and scummy. Lots of black mould around the tub. Old poorly working taps. Very unpleasant in my room. The public part of the hotel looks pretty good. Have no idea how this hotel could be rated a 4 or 5. It is not a nice place to stay
What a beautiful hotel this must have been in it's heyday, it still retains a quiet splendor of days long gone and can be seen in the public sreas such as the entrance/reception area and the dining rooms. As far as my bedroom was concerned it was furnished in worn but coolurful wooden bed and furniture with a very large shower room. Thankfully the cupboard in the room had 3 extra blankets which I certainly needed as the room was very cold but at least the mosquitos must have thought the same as there were none to be seen. The two nights we stayed there, some of the group dined in the hotel and there was a pervading smell of paraffin throughout the dining area from the oil heaters but we still had to wear our coats throughout the meal. The service and food however were excellent and very good value. I had butter chicken the first night and Chicken Biryani the second night with Chicken Sweetcorn soup as a starter both nights. Roti and chapatis, Kingfisher beer, coffee and Masala Chai were also enjoyed.…
