We stayed at the Samode Haveli for 3 nights in December 2012 and much to our delight, the hotel and facilities are top notch. We very much enjoyed the 'look and feel' of this 200 year old property and spent most evenings hanging out over drinks beside the huge, beautifully landscaped swimming pool.
The staff at the hotel were always friendly and charming, no hassles at all with checking in and even upgraded to a suite, as the hotel was not completely full!
Dinner in the restaurant, although a bit expensive, is well worth it for the atmosphere, great food, attentive service. The dining room itself is not to be believed: a work of art.
I cannot fault this hotel in any way and will certainly stay here again upon returning to Jaipur.
Highly recommended and a new favourite.
