I was totally lost when it comes to trying to find a hotel in Jaipur and finally settled with this upon looking at their website.

This area is actually residential and from the looks of it, slighty affluent area which makes it cleaner and very much quiet and safe. It's usually a homestay area. The hotel is right opposite Pearl Palace which means you can dine in this hotel or head toward's Pearl palace. Personally I prefer dining there.

Back to the hotel, praise God, the CLEANEST toilet that I've encountered in India - hot water was patchy but I am not picky as I showered at the common toilet on the rooftop instead. They have FREE wifi which is great!

Isn't much things nearby but you can always rely on the few autorickshaw dude hanging around the hotel to drive you around

The hotel is located on a quiet street and near other famous B&Bs. The rooms were clean and Ravkumar Sharma was very friendly. Some of the rooms near the terrace have great views of the Harhroi Fort ourside their front door.

OK, we didn't actually stay here but I want to recommend the entertainment we came to here (Also, if the service we experienced on the night is indicative of the service if you stay here, then it's worth a recommendation) It was NYE but I think they do this type of event fairly regularly. They have a lovely rooftop space and had a really good Rajasthani folk band playing.
Worth getting in touch if you're in Jaipur to see if they do have anything on. And if you're around on NYE next year, and are having the same difficulty that we had trying to find somewhere, then this is somewhere you should definitely look at.
Great night.

Hi Marc,

Sorry for responding so late. And thanks a ton for reviewing our NYE bash. I distinctly remember interacting with you and your friend that night. You both were really awesome, we never felt that you were not staying with us. In fact the way you and your partner interacted with all the other guests, performers and hotel staff it felt as if you were one of us sharing the good times. Thanks for being there.

Best,
Anshu Sharma

Arrived at 6am..and the reception was ready for us..! Since we were early, there was no room but they let us waited at the garden cafe and later provided us with free chai. Later around 8am, we were given a room at 8am....Never arrived that early as we were charged Rs 130..at the prepaid autorickshaw..but what the heck.. we just need a place to sit after the train journey.

Might not be easy to find to those who are not familiar with the area.. as our autorickshaw was going around and around and around.....till we get there after asking around and calling the hotel. Should u have this issue, just say Pearl Palace hotel, located opposite of Chitra Katha...
The place is near to train station...perhaps a walk of 15 minutes..by autorickshaw..just a few minutes away.. but it's slightly far from the city center.. we had a rickshaw for about Rs 70. Don't worry. there are many autorickshaws outside the hotels as there are abt 4 hotels along the road. We paid Rs300 for a city place, amber fort and going around the city...which was for abt 5 hrs for us.

We had a room on the ground level. The bathroom and non AC room was clean..! With simple deco and lovely ceiling fresco. My best accommodation in my entire trip in India... However, the window didn't shut properly so it was a bit cold in the eve..but stil manageable...

Internet was Rs25/half an hour if i recall corectly.

The restaurant food was also fair.. Try the wanton soup.. execellent..!! Well... the kitchen might be a bit slow.. but the foodwas of good portion and ok.

Room Tip: Ground level rooms are a bit noisy as the corridor is the only access to the rooms and garden cafe.
