“An average stay in a Mediocre hotel in the heart of the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

We had booked this hotel online for our stay in Jaipur during the Rajasthan trip in Oct 2010 through the RTDC website. The booking the hotel was easy as there were enough rooms available and RTDC has a simple website to navigate through their booking process. However, you cannot get any discounts (as advertised on the website) if booked online. You need to pay the entire amount at the time of booking. Though it says you can get the discount once you check into the hotel, but at the hotel people said that they cannot give any refund on rooms booked online. We had asked for an extra bed during the online booking and hence were fortunate to get that when we checked-in, because when we asked for the extra bed at the reception at the time of check-in, even before looking at our reservation request we were told that there were no extra bed available. However, when we told that the extra bed was already requested at the time of booking and the payment was already been made for that, they did provide a bed , but without a cot. So the extra person had to sleep down.
The rooms were big and the bedsheet and linens were clean. The bathrooms were also clean with some dirt patches here and there. You cannot expect a cleaner bathroom in a govt hotel. The towels were clean but had become hard with repeated washes over the period of time. They definitely need to be changed soon. Though it is a govt hotel, we got prompt room service whenever we called for.
The worst part of our stay in this hotel was when a small rat managed to sneak into our room through the gaps below the doors. Again the room service guys came to our rescue when they managed to trap and kill the rat with their rare skills and expertise gained over a period of time.
The restaurant had a wide variety of choices from North Indian, Rajasthani, South Indian, Chinese cuisines. The food from the Ala carte menu was tasty but the service was poor. You may have to wait for 30 to 45 mins if you order lot of dishes. But the quality of the complimentary breakfast was horrible and it took lot of time to re-fill any of the items when it got over. Also be careful to keep tab of what you order and what you eat when you settle the bills else you will have to pay for their mistakes. Overall we had a very average stay at this hotel with a mix of good and bad experiences. We didn’t mind staying in this hotel much since most of our time was spent outside roaming in the city.

Do not do an online booking especially if there is a discount scheme... On three separate occations the reception staff tried to convince us that refund was not possible.. finally after writing a letter in the morning of departure.

We were given a twin bed room when it was clealy mentioned in the site that the rooms have double beds. The rooms were shabby as expected from my previous experience in a RTDC hotel in Jodhpur, Ghoomer. There was no ventilation and a small window in the corner and hence it felt very suffocating. The air conditioner was not effective and the beds were unconfortable.

Overall it was an unpleasant experience.. it is priced more than a fair deal... You could get much better accomodations for that kind of tariff...

I had recently made a trip to Jaipur by road from New Delhi with my wife. We had amade an online booking of Hotel Gangaur RTDC, which was smooth. We even had to make a last minute date adjustment, which was enabled by the very co-operative and approachble GM of the hotel. the check-in too was smooth and unlike in other government run hotels the staff was very courateous and helpful.

The room we took was nice and spacious, withthe AC in good working condition. The toilet was clean and so was the linen. The hotel has three rstaurants, where the breakfats and thetea and snacks are good, but the main course meals should better be avoided.Unfortunately no typical rajasthani fare was available.

The hotel has ample parking space, with room for the drivers. We checked out at 5am, and even at that odd hour the staff was very co-operative and helpful.

Overall the stay and the whole experience was very satisfying and I shall highly recommend this hotel to my fellow travellers.

The location of this hotel is definitely its plus point. You can move around anywhere in the city at ease. Rooms are ok, as expected from a government set-up. Staff are good. We had only breakfast there and it was decent. In short, value for money.

Hotel is near to Jaipur Railway Station( 15 minutes Auto)

Staff's behaviour & Service is very nice.

Rooms are spacious. We stayed in a Doble Bed room with one extra bed and the cost was very reasonable.

The resturant at the hotel is not as expected. Although the food was not bad but was not as expected and the service was also very slow.

Hotel had arranged a taxi also for visiting the places in Jaipur.

Overall experience in the hotel was Good.
