“A true oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Meghniwas is a true gem in the jungle of private hotels in Jaipur. Stylish, yet unassuming, it offers true comfort and peace in a chaotic city of Jaipur. We spent a long weekend at Meghniwas in August with our two young children and were delighted with our experience: a beautiful old (but extremely well kept) house with a front lawn and a wonderful little pool, stylish and spacious rooms and a simple but delicious food, most of which is organically grown in their roof-top garden-terrace. Wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Singh (owners), as well as helpful and discreet staff, made us feel relaxed. In addition to the off-season discount, at the end of our stay we were surprised with an additional reduction we received, as a token of generosity and good will by the owners. It is a stylish, yet relaxed and child-friendly place, and we will certainly, certainly visit Meghniwas again.

At first we did not realize that it was a hotel- we thought it is a private bungalow. we went there once we could not find space at the adjacent Jas Villas. Megh Niwas (written Meghniwas) is a very nice place with a sprawling green lawn and a nice swimming pool and Cafeteria. Probably, as it was off season we got a nice discount there. If you can find a room on the ground floor front side facing the lawn it is a great value of money you spend. Rooms are spacious, neat and clean and well maintained. Food is average. I do not find the Indian food very good. You must try the lemon they serve with lunch. It has a very different and strong aroma.

We had a team of 12 students and 3 staff, we stayed at meghniwas for 4 nights for our final R&R phase of a 6 week expedition before we went back to the UK. Mrs Singh the owner is a kind and welcoming lady, who goes out of her way to help you make the most of your stay. If I came back to Jaipur again this is where I would stay without a second though, I cannot recommend it enough.

We wanted a well located 'non hotel' property to stay for a weekend in Jaipur for our family, and found Meghniwas on TripAdvisor. It's a haveli kind of residence that has been converted into a hotel. It was an overall good experience. The location is excellent on wide road with ample parking the rear of the Hotel. The place is clean, with well maintained lawn in front-where the kids played and a pool at back to lounge around. There's even a resident cat that kept the kids entertained! The staff was attentive and helpful, going to extent of making bookings on our behalf, and giving us directions and tips to places around Jaipur. I would like to make a special mention that, some gold jewelry that I forgot behind in the bathroom in the morning was left untouched (despite the room being cleaned) when I returned at night. The food available is nothing to write home about, but neither was it bad. The rooms are big and comfortable. Definitely recommended as a nice place to stay in Jaipur, if one is happy with simple fare on the hotel menu or willing to explore the many food joints in Jaipur, besides this hotel.

Staying at Meghniwas was such a wonderful experience. The hotel is super clean and the staff is very efficient and knowledgeable. Rickshaws were easy to find outside of the hotel and could take us easily for 50 rupees (<$1) to any restaurant on MI road. I have a great memory of swimming in the pool while my friend skyped her family from the swinging chair right to the pool and having two mango shakes brought to us (including to me in the pool!). How luxurious! For such a clean, and comfortable hotel it has great charm and personality. The owner of the hotel is always sitting out on the lawn and happy to talk to guests about India, Jaipur and his children. Recommend 100%! They even let us drop off our luggage early while we took a three day train trip to Jodhpur! Powerful AC and great restaurant!

I stayed here along with a party of English ladies during a textiles holiday. Stepping off the coach after a 7 hour trip from Delhi where the roads are noisy, dirty, busy, and crazy with traffic, was like stepping into paradise. As soon as you are through the main gates and head towards reception the noise and busyness just melts away. Colonel Fateh Singh's wife Indu greeted us all personally with a garland of flowers, and the staff were very welcoming fetching us refreshing cold drinks. The room I stayed in overlooked the pool, was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and had an enormous bathroom. I enjoyed wifi, air conditioning and a fridge in my room, and it was cleaned every day and fresh towels left out.

The restaurant and food were an unexpected delight. At every meal time there was a banquet style selection of gorgeous foods, much from the owners own organic farm. We couldn't praise the food or the staff enough, in fact I didn't want to eat anywhere else. Outside the restaurant there are tables and chairs and garden swings to sit in and relax. There is also a computer room and a library of books.

When we sent out our laundry, it was back the same day, all neatly ironed and folded beautifully, I felt really pampered by my experience and would love to go back next year.

The property is a pretty one amidst a lot of other similar properties in that part of Jaipur (Bani Park). The rooms were very spacious and well laid out. There was a nice lawn to lounge around in and a swimming pool, which could be made good use of in the summer (we travelled in December). However, there were some sore points, the first being food- it was tasteless, lacklustre, staid and had no thought process behind it (the dinner buffet had fried rice with Indian curries). The a la carte service was also very slow. The other grouse that we had was when we asked for an extra blanket for our driver, they flatly refused us. Most hotels that we have stayed in around the country have provisions for driver's accommodation. While that might not be always possible, a blanket surely couldn't have hurt (in the biting cold of December). Also, while checking out, the billing was incorrect and the staff was totally confused when we pointed that out. This is by no means a slight on their behaviour as they were polite throughout. However, when you are running the ops of a hotel with some repute, more professionalism is expected
