Reviewed 28 January 2012

Was pleasantly surprised by the luxurious look and feel of the hotel despite such low costs. Was ideal for my business trip and the staff were super-friendly. Wi-fi works pretty well here and no issues for travelling to practically anywhere around Jaipur from this location.

Definitely going to make sure we get a corporate deal.

Room Tip: Get the room that is garden facing. Best location for phone and internet signal.

right in center of city..everyeffort has been made to give royal touch

glimses of old royal culture made at competitive price/investment but it deserves recognisation

reasonably budget hotel inspite of expensive look .real value for money

closer to city station

Room Tip: choose deluxe room rather than standard room

This hotel is perhaps a little away from the town but is easy to get transport. It is impressive when first arriving at the hotel as it has a lovely traditional front. The reception staff were efficient though not particularly warm or friendly. Double room was fine but very tiny balcony overlooking concrete buildings. Everything was clean and well cared for and some of the artwork and photographs are a lovely addition to rooms and corridors.

The roof top restaurant is very pleasant and offers a good quality of food and varied menu. The restaurant also serves some decent wines. Serving staff were very good.

The stay was certainly satisfactory but I'm not sure I would wish to stay longer than a couple of nights.

Good location, away from most of the traffic noise. The room was clean, quite and it was very nice to have a modern bathroom with all the amenities. The breakfast was good - good selection of both indian and non indian.

Pros
This haveli is gorgeous. By and far the finest place we stayed in all of India (and one of the most affordable, too). You can't help but look at everything as you walk around. The furniture, painted walls, etc are all exquisite.
Our room was clean and well appointed. It wasn't large, but sufficient for two people. Just as nice as the rest of the hotel, it had beautiful furniture and a hand-painted ceiling. There was a small balcony but it overlooked what appeared to be an apartment building. It was quiet, though.
The bathroom was western-style, with a glass-enclosed shower that was large enough for two people. The water pressure was strong and the hot water lasted indefinitely.
Breakfast was included and was above standard with eggs, toast, tea, fries, and a large variety of indian food.

Cons
The location is less than ideal. It is outside the city walls and away from restaurants and tourist sites. Rickshaw taxis or a car are needed to get anywhere. I would suggest walking to the main road to hail one and haggle the price. Likely, the autos that reception will get you, or the ones in front of the hotel, will be more expensive.

Would I recommend it? Without a doubt.
