“Government Guest House”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

1. Positives: Location- Diagonally opposite to station very close to thali joints.
2. Negatives: Inside a narrow lane stinking entrance as there is a public urinal just in front of the passage. Not at all decked up. It looks more like the last time it was cleaned is when it was constructed. We took a family room where geyser flush don't work. The Bfast is included but quality and the spread is pathetic.
The only good part is Jaipur is so full of tourist places that you would just need the hotel to freshen up.
Places to see: 1. Amber fort 2. Jaigarh fort 3. Nahargarh fort 4. City palace (check out Mado Singh's kurta) 5. jantar Mantar 6. Hawa Mahal 7. Jal Mahal and ofcourse shopping that you wont realize how pathetic the stay was.

Stayed here during our recent trip to Jaipur. Selected the hotel based on tripadvisor review. But very disappointed. It is a typical Sarkari Guest House near the railway station. Approach road is dirty and stinking smell with open drainage. Garbage deposit just infront of the hotel gate. Rooms are dirty with full of dust and no maintenance. Bathrooms fittings are very old and broken/does not work. Restaurant and Food - Horrible. No room service. Overall Very disatisfied. Not recommended.

The advantage of this Hotel is the name RTDC and Location from Railway Station.
Good option for 1-2 Night stay with a requirement of nearer distance to the Jaipur Railway station.
There is no Room service except for Morning Tea- Coffee as they do not serve any food in the room and one has to go to their Restaurant for eating purpose.
Rooms were spacious; however need much improvement.
Safety and Location was the Best in Town. This is the nearest RTDC option available in Jaipur.
The over all attitude of the Restaurant guy sitting on PC was not so OK. He always seemed to be very busy in either filling some sort of form or calculating the Govt. service tax to be charged on every extra Bread Slice or Banana taken during the breakfast. Also I found his responses to queries were not so OK. (Not with me personally, however with Foreign Tourists)
The food quality was just OK as similar to other Indian Govt. owned Hotels.
I stayed in both AC and Non AC Rooms and both rooms were needed an entire overhaul and I am sure RTDC can easily afford it to attract more Travelers.

Reviewed 29 November 2010

I, with wife and two grown up children stayed for Nov. 22-28, in Jaipur. As others said, the place is conviniently located opposite Railway Station, but you have to cross a urine-stinking lane very time you approach it or come out.
At the time of our stay, a student group of 50 students, and also a Baarat was staying there making great noises, including leg attacks on room doors. Lound music till late in night and also in mornings was routine. Due to them, genuine tourists had no space at Breakfast and dinner time, cups and cutlery not available and staff was in rotten mood. When attention was drawn, every body passed the buck to higher officers, and we were told that it is a typical govt. hotel.

Many staff at reception and dining hall were found busy playing cards on the computer.

Rooms were dirty. No care no courtsey

Food quality was ordinary
