This hotel is not just historically beautiful, it is maintained with ultimate care. You can tell, whoever runs the Raj Palace takes pride in every detail. Nothing is amiss.
It was always serene in the lawn where we could sit with a drink or cuppa for some quiet time, or evening entertainment with the local puppeteer.
Service across the board was flawless. The food was excellent, always tuned to our specific taste...not spicy. The concierge always ready with useful tips and advice about our stay in Jaipur. The beds were super comfy, the linens fresh without smelling of detergent or disinfectants; I've never slept as well in a hotel before, plenty of hot water for three showers, (two teenage girls and mother), the staff members always acknowledged us with a warm greeting.
If you aren't happy with the city, you can easily find things to do inside this palace, the museum, the books and pictures can keep you occupied. The front desk manager gave us a short tour of the place and showed us some historically significant relics. I believe one can request a full tour too, we just didn't have the opportunity.
In summary, if you want to spoil yourself, stay in a place that makes you feel like royalty, and get a taste of Rajasthani hospitality, this is your place.
It was worth the money!
