I loved this hotel. It was a nice and comfortable place to stay. Great staff-really nice people. Wonderful laundry service. Delicious breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room with a balcony.

this place is probably one of the best in Rajasthan in terms of service ! Rooms are lovely and well furnished, the garden is delightful, the food is excellent and should satisfy all tastes...
The staff is efficient, though discreet, No pushing, no hassle, all informations are available on request. We stayed there for 3 nights in a row being a group of 12. The weather was quite chilly and we were all delighted to find a portable heater in our rooms after the first night, without asking for it ! House keeping and room services are both excellent and one can easily feel that the owner is personnally taking care of the place. Thanks for a lovely stay !

We were sorry to only have one night in this delightful hotel. Conveniently located, clean and welcoming, this hotel had all the modern conveniences with plenty of old world charm. We were particularly grateful to Indu Singh who went beyond the call of duty to help us with our travel plans, but all of the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. Another plus was the excellent coffee, which generally seems hard to get hold of in India.

I travelled with two friends, just staying in Jaipur for one night. We had originally tried to book Jasvilas but as it was full they recommended Meghniwas (next door, same family) and we were delighted with it. Yes, it's not a 5* with all the associated trappings but we actually preferred it in many ways to the 3 5*s that we stayed in...

The airport pick-up was fine but don't be alarmed if they put your cases on the roof - this seems normal there. First impression: the gardens are beautiful, lots of lovely seating around the pool and a very welcome tea in a beautiful silver pot/coffee (proper stuff in a cafetiere!) was served whilst we waited for our room (we arrived early).

They gave us the suite as we were 3 sharing which was lovely (2 sofas, desk, chairs, dressing table etc.). Lots of cool marble and nice but subtle locally-inspired decor. Bathroom was large and shower was very good. Beds were comfortable (v large double + extra good-size bed which was fine for an adult), everything was clean, and the character and garden views make up for the odd scuff mark/faded patch.

We had lunch in the restaurant before heading out. There was some good veggie options and the samosas were particularly nice. It wasn't anything to write home about but it was flavoursome and excellent value.

Mrs Singh made the place very special with her warm, relaxed and helpful nature. She arranged a car to take us around the sights of Jaipur and a driver to take us to Agra upon departure, both of which were reasonably priced. She also helped us to get a rickshaw in the evening and went to lots of effort to ensure we were comfortable. The location was great for us, just 10 minutes to the centre/old city but far enough out to be really quiet and away from the hussle and bustle of the centre.

A few little niggles (there are always some with me) but these are just suggestions for improvement/expectation-managers rather than anything that should put you off:

The room was a little chilly, we were staying in their winter and the electric heater did the job (I understand that some of the rooms have AC units which also provide heating) but do take some good pyjamas if staying there in winter (although I bet it would be beautifully cool in the summer); would have been nice to have some conditioner in the bathroom; the dog was beautiful but barked a lot whilst we were sitting outside; breakfast buffet was good but not the best and there wasn't much choice for my vegan friend.

Overall, we were delighed with this find, and with the price. We were sad to only have one night there and would definitely return!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an AC heater if you stay in the winter. Room 210 was large and very nice.

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...
