“Country house hotel- in the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Imagine an English Country house, a little bit behind the times, but very well kept and run by someone who is very thoughtful down to even putting new toothbrushes in the bathroom in case you have forgotten!
Set in a green garden with a swimming pool round the back plus a discrete staff under the supervision of the Admiral, a very warm and accomodating host with a fund of knowledge he is willing to share.
In Jaipur you are in a posh residential area, walking distance from some of the restaurants with top Tripadvisor ratings, with an HSBC ATM next door and a tuc-tuc rank down the road for adventures into town.
They even have free Wi-fi and lots of lounging spaces for reading where they will serve coffee or beer when you want. What more do you need?

Room Tip: All the room seem to be off furnished common areas, no corridors- very pleasant in all we saw.

Excellent hotel - excellent host - first class value for money. this hotel was a heritage hotel and has been in the Singh family for many years - long may they reign.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be alike - all based on the first floor around a common space - feels quit secur...

Devi Niketan was actually selected by a friend of ours. The experience actually started with the email exchange - prompt, polite, and accommodating.
The hotel itself is great value for money. The rooms are beautifully decorated, bright, and clean.
Home-made food and high-level of service made the stay very pleasant. Admiral Singh himself is an excellent host and is personally very active in assisting travellers in planning the daily schedules - recommending places to visit, arranging taxis, giving tips..
All in all, it was a memorable trip and Deviniketan made that possible.

I was so thankful we chose this hotel. The location is very central with easy access to transportation and within walking distance of some very good restaurants. Though it is located on a noisy road, you would never know it. The hotel is serene, so quiet. We had very restful nights sleep here, and we were so thankful for a quiet, tranquil place to get away from all the craziness of the city. The Admiral runs his hotel like a ship; it is spotless, orderly and calm. He was very helpful in planning our activities and suggesting delicious places to eat. Upon arrival, he gave us a map of Jaipur, circled highlights and gave us some suggestions. No other manager did this for us on our five week trip. It was such a treat to talk with him.The staff was fantastic. They were very accommodating to my family, especially our one year old. I was able to keep food in the fridge, use their kitchen and they even ran out to get food for our baby from time to time (things like yogurt, peas) and offered to cook his food for us. We couldn't have asked for more. Both of the rooms were very quiet and beautifully decorated. What we loved the most was the outdoor common area right outside our rooms. This allowed me and my husband and his father to leave our rooms and talk, go online, play games all while our baby was asleep in our room. This really provided us with some great "adult" time which can be hard to come by when you have a sleeping baby in a hotel and no place to go and talk where you can keep an eye on him. The food was fresh and very tasty. The breakfasts were a great opportunity to meet fellow travelers over made to order food.
When we had to come back through Jaipur on the train, we had twelve hours to kill during the day. The admiral offered us a room at a day rate and this allowed our baby to nap and for us to get some much needed relaxing in. Since we traveled in January, it was too cool to use the pool. But it looks lovely; clean and well kept. The grounds are fantastic, you can jog around the property as there is a track that encircles it. There is grass you can lounge and play in and peacocks sometimes hop the wall (very exciting for our baby!). This was a fantastic experience, I would highly recommend Devi Niketan as a peaceful refuge in an often crowded city. I would stay here again if we return to Jaipur.

Devi Niketan is a fantastic small hotel with a great owner who is welcoming and very accommodating. The other staff are also very polite and helpful. The hygiene standard was very high and there was not one aspect of the place that I would consider unclean or not fully functional. The rooms were quite nice with comfortable beds, plenty of space and hot running water. There is also AC, a heater, tea and coffee facilities and a tv. I was pleasantly surprised with the value for money.
I travelled to India with 3 other young girls and I felt quite safe and comfortable at Devi Niketan. I would recommend this hotel!
