Having stayed in Jaipur many times, I can safely say that this is the BEST hotel for the budget traveller. Its India's navy Admiral's ancestral home and he is the most gracious host offering his guests personalized attention. The hotel's rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable in every way. The atmosphere is serene and pleasant, quite a contrast to the noisy city. Nice basic breakfast and snacks. The Admiral is from the Royal family of Chomu and a few rooms are dedicated to a small family history museum of the Kings of Chomu, which adds to the atmosphere of the place. Its perfect for the budget traveller - great value for money for a heritage hotel. I've stayed there 3 times and can safely say that my experiences have been very consistent with the hotel!
