Stayed three nights at BhimVilas while I was on a sightseeing trip with my daughter. The place was clean, comfortable, safe and a short auto ride from the old city where all the sights are. It is also walking distance from Raj Mandir the famed movie theatre in Jaipur. It is pretty close to some shopping malls - clothing, jewellery etc. So if you are looking for a place to stay while visiting Jaipur, this place is very suitable. And it is very reasonably priced. The breakfast is very good. I had to ask the cook to stop serving me, almost felt like an all-you-can-eat type affair, though there are only 2 choices for breakfast - toast/omelette and aloo paratha.
What you might miss - ambience and atmosphere of a heritage hotel. Not having stayed at one of these places, I cannot compare. There is no restaurant in the hotel or nearby. Just the kitchen which is used for breakfast prep. And that only is available at 8AM. There is no reception, concierge or anything like that, just the cook/helper type guy. If you have any questions, he will put you on the phone with the manager.
What I was not thrilled about - there was no elevator. I had to lug my bags thru 3 flights of stairs. You have to remember to lock the room with your key when you enter or leave the room. The TV did not work satisfactorily. The driver recommended by the owner was perhaps expensive, and charged me more than the previously agreed upon faire. I do not recommend going with this guy.
Other than that I was quite happy with my stay here.
