I am surprised that the Taj group claims any kind of association to this property because if they do, they better wake up before SMS Hotel destroys their reputation. I stayed there recently for the third time and could not believe how much the place has deteriorated due to lack of care. The rooms are large but lack any beauty... More

this is an ok hotel, not much when comparing to the jaw dropping luxury hotel next door. however, you paid what you get. the room was spacious and you are more likely to get a free upgrade if you are white, blonde with blue eyes. the overall room needs some maintainence, all a bit tatty, wifi is available at a...

What you need in a hot city like jaipur is someplace like this... lush green gardens, excellent food, huge rooms, quick in room dining and the best part is the price you pay for it. Also it has a small swimming pool surrounded by garden full of peacocks... I just loved it. Looking forward to stay again...

It was the second time i stayed in the Sms and what i like is the big spasious rooms and its good location next to the Rambagh Palace hotel. The staff was very friendly and i think it was good value for money. It could be nice if they could make the Wi fi free

Travelled to the SMS hotel in November 2013. I suggest that its value for money in the off season since the rates are really cheap. They have good rooms, but nothing much to do beyond a small pool ....Its a nice place to stay, but not the sorts where you can vegetate in the resort. There were some billing issues... More
