I travelled to India for the first time on my own (I'm female) specifically to attend the 2012 Jaipur Literary Festival (a MUST for everyone interested in the literature of the region) in January and spent a week after the festival at Devi Niketan to explore the city. Admiral Singh is a most charming and informative host, as are all his staff members, who provided excellent service and delicious food - and, most importantly - warmth and friendliness. My room was spacious (yet cozy, somehow), comfortable and clean, and the hotel itself is centrally situated in a large, quiet campus. I'd recommend it freely to anyone!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Devi Niketan is a family owned and operated Heritage Hotel in central Jaipur which was inaugurated on April 2008. It stands on a big plot with large, lush green lawns in front and rear of the building, a large parking area and a swimming pool. A double storied heritage house, it is part of the 140 acre estate of the former ruling family of Chomu. Adjacent to Devi Niketan is "Govind Niwas", the residence of Admiral Madhvendra Singh and his wife Kumu, who own and run "Devi Niketan". Govind Niwas too stands on a big plot with plenty of greenery. Taken together the two properties stand on a two acre estate which gives a feeling of space and tranquility - even though it is surrounded by a bustling city. It is in a "Happening" neighbourhood with plenty of eating places, Ayurvedic massage parlours, shopping malls with food courts and movie theaters, banks & ATMs, gyms - all within one kilometer.While we do not have an a la Carte Restaurant, a Buffet Breakfast is available and Dinner is served if ordered. ... more less
