We stopped by Jaipur on our way from Bundi to Delhi, and only had one day in Jaipur. I phoned the hotel from Bundi the day before we arrived to reserve a room, and my first impression was that I was amazed of how welcoming and genuinely caring the hotel man I talked to seemed. Without asking if we needed... More

This family run guesthouse is very clean and peacefull. A fifteen minute walk from the old city and bazaar area. Value for money and the hot shower is a joy! Scrumptious omellete for breakfast. Plenty of value food options in the area. No complaints whatsoever.perfect for all travellers even the budget conscious.

Stayed here twice on a lap if Rajasthan, and had a very pleasant stay. The staff are lovely, helpful and attentive. The food is decent too. They can also arrange a rickshaw for you to see the various sights of Jaipur. It may cost a little more than if you bartered on the street, and they're very open about this,... More

The family that runs Karni Niwas are ever-attentive to their guests needs. The rooms are large and comfortable. Helpful advice is available at the front desk. It is a little bit off the main drag, but not too far, and they will very kindly offer free pick up from or delivery to the nearby main railway station. A very comfortable... More

This was our best hotel on the trip through India. We stayed 2 nights in a standart Double room for 800 Rs per person and night. The owners are really kind and helpful and it was the first time that someone explained us the region, what we can do and where we should be careful. The rooms are really hugh... More

Rude host with a sub par room at a high price. No good common area and the food was terrible. There are so many better options in Jaipur for the same price with much friendlier hosts. The location was also much worse than other options. Wifi worked maybe 10% of the time we were there.

We got a nice room with a bath (very rare in India) for a reasonable price. The chairs they have placed outside make it a lovely spot for breakfast, especially when ordering room service. They were repainting the hall when we arrived but it should be finished by now. The location is great, next to cinemas and food joints. The... More

Great room and fair price. Room and bathroom were really clean compare to others places I stayed during my journey. Hot water was unlimited and room were fresh which is good to take rest after a hot day outside visiting the city. Indian managers are very nice also, good help and they provided free pick up at train station even... More

Lovely clean big rooms with comfy beds and immaculate sheets. Great hot water pressure too which was a real bonus! Location was quite central too which is a bonus. Wifi a bit flaky, but staff were lovely, really friendly, honest and helpful :) highly recommended!
