“Oasis of Peace!”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

We loved our stay at Meghniwas in 2007 so when we were back in Rajasthan it was an obvious choice for our re-visit to Jaipur. A telephone ahead from Jaisalmer secured a room at a very good rate & we were not disappointed when we arrived. It was early and Mrs Singh was very helpful in letting us check in early & honouring the rate given to me over the phone!

The room at the rear of the hotel was exceptionally clean with TV, ensuite facilities, a small fridge, tea & coffee making facilities & quiet air-conditioning. It also had a nice balcony overlooking the pool.

We found the owners & the staff to be very helpful & obliging. Instead of the full buffet breakfast we were able to go a la carte which suited us fine. Both the indoor restaurant & the tables outside by the pool were delightful. The garden was lovely for afternoon tea or a beer and if you were lucky you got to spot monkeys playing on neighbouring roofs!

The clean pool was a haven from the heat and there was always a stack of pool towels for guests to use. We used it each day.

While there were not many taxis outside the hotel there were always autos [tuk tuks] but you need to knock down the price they initially quote. If they declined to play ball a simple walk down the road would attract others who would meet your price!

There were no restaurants within walking distance of the hotel but the autos were always available for a ride into the city centre which did not take long. Likewise there was always transport available for the return journey. A very short ride from the Meghniwas is the expensive Royal Orchid Hotel which had 2 excellent restaurants: a rooftop Chinese one & an Indian one on the first floor. Both were affordable with excellent food & service

An added bonus was a large supermarket just a short stroll from the hotel which was well stocked with most items anybody would need & it was open to around 10pm every day. As the hotel room had a small fridge we were able to buy our sodas, juices, etc here and serve them up ice cold when we needed them! There were a few ATMs also within easy walking distance of the hotel. For the more adventurous a stroll down the local roads would lead to finds of an inexpensive laundry service, other small grocery stores, internet shops.

I hate to recommed this hotel so highly as it means that when I next want to stay there it will either be full, or its popularity will have led to increased room rates!! My daugther on a visit to Jaipur a month later was equally impressed by the hotel, its owners, etc.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear can be quieter. Check out for one with a balcony Ask to see a few before decidin...

Hotel Meghniwas
After Arriving in India for the first time and braving the chaos of Delhi with its hotel room with no window, we wondered what we had come to. Had we really made the right decision on this kind of adventure? Was India going to be too much for us? The culture and poverty was a huge shock . We had seen it on TV but we still did not expect what reality brought us.
Then we arrived in Jaiphur, we couldn’t believe this little piece of paradise. It was an Oasis of Indian charm. The large detached private house is set back from the main road and is situated in its own lush grounds. It has been converted into a beautiful hotel, run by Colonel Singh and his wife. Away from the hustle and bustle, this hotel was just what we wanted. The pool was very clean and well kept, making it a cool welcome after a day of hot dusty sightseeing. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The food was excellent, well prepared, fresh and very good value. The whole ambiance of the place was very relaxing and friendly, allowing us to wind down and enjoy our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were always on hand with good help and advice. They were always immaculately dressed and polite.
I was also fascinated by the artwork being undertaken while we were staying at the hotel. Traditional hand painted boarders, cornices and walls had painstakingly been done with the most beautiful precision
Transport was easily arranged as taxi and tut tut drivers were always waiting at the bottom of the driveway to show us round Jaipur for a small fee. Fees are to be negotiated before the journey with the driver
This had to be our favorite hotel during out trip to India in 2008 and we have just booked to return this year with our daughter.

Room Tip: The room overlooking the pool was quiet and had a lovely view

We stayed for 2 nights in December, location is ok, rooms are big ,the facilities and toiletry do not commensurate with the rent charged , which is on the higher side .Not a value for money as per Jaipur standards.

Road facing rooms are noisy, although there was lot of sun in the lawn in december. Food is ok, a bit bland for Indians, ok for foriegners.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms to be selected

This is a great little hotel. Our room was well appointed and with a double bed and a good selection of channels on the telly. The pool was well maintained and the staff were efficient without being unnecessarily obsequious. Had a great stay here last spring!

We stayed in Jaipur for 3 days following a brief visit to Agra. One of our objectives was to have our hotel in Jaipur arrange for a driver to pick us up at the airport in Delhi, take us to Agra and then bring us back to Jaipur. Mrs. Singh arranged for driver Vikram (very highly recommended!!) who did a great job on our tight schedule. Once at Meghniwas, we really enjoyed the beautiful grounds and Mrs. Singh's warm, welcoming attitude. We were also pleasantly surprised at how good the restaurant was. Lastly, Mrs. Singh arranged for a daytrip to Pushkar and allowed us to tour the Colonel's Camp! What a great first experience in India. When we come back to Rhajasthan, Meghniwas will be the first call/email that we'll make!
