“Just what the doctor ordered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Reading the various reviews of this hotel, we had fairly high expectations and the hotel didn't let us down. We had booked a suite for three days, changed our itinerary to arrive a day earlier and the management accommodated us immediately, despite it being the peak tourist season. Having read many of the earlier reviews advising visitors to try for poolside rooms, we wanted one too. But they were all taken and the only suite was on the ground floor facing the road. The traffic noise wasn't too intrusive once the windows were shut. Further, one could just step out of the suite and on to the lawn, or the swing, to cosy up with a book or for a cup of tea anytime of the day. Jaipur was much warmer than Delhi, so the heater in the room nearly cooked us :-D till we reset the temperature a bit lower.

The restaurant is pretty decent, with buffet and a la carte selections. But we had come looking for authentic Rajasthani fare (but that's in a different review), so didn't dine here often. The poolside sitouts were pretty nice. Would have loved a dip, but for the temperature outside. Now for the suite itself...for about USD120 a night, the place is a steal. Our suite was very spacious, airy and had a lot of natural light. The suite was done up with a period theme and the furniture's also been chosen tastefully. Awesome bathroom with a full length tub. If you're planning to stay in the room for any length of time, there's a 32" Flatscreen and oodles of channels on Cable. The staff was very responsive and attentive to our requirements.

Little issues faced, the parking out front can only accommodate two cars. So if there are already two parked there, you need to take your car out to the back, which is a short ride away. Again, since we only had to do this once, we didn't have a problem with this. But had we had to do this time and again, we'd have probably hated it. Second, the water is heated by a solar water heater. By the time the third person entered the shower, the water was more tepid that hot. It went from hot to warm to lukewarm to brrrrr-get-out-of-the-shower-quick rather too fast for my comfort. The brochure and map they keep in the reception really came in handy.

You would be well advised to hire a Govt approved guide for sightseeing. At INR550 (USD10) for an 8-hour duration, the guide really augments the experience. We had a car, so the guide was instrumental in helping us find good places to eat, parking slots at all the spots and local news and tidbits...To conclude, a great stay at a very reasonably cost. Will I stay here again? HELL YES!

Room Tip: Poolside rooms may mean less traffic noise, as other reviews mention, but even the suite facing the...

I have stayed at the Meghniwas 4 times now, twice with my parents on their first and second trips to India. We always have an absolutely wonderful time. Everything is clean, the food is WONDERFUL!!! and very fresh! We also stayed at their other hotel in Pushkar, the Colonel's Camp. And we recommend that as well! The Meghniwas is a safe, relaxing, clean haven away from the bustle and dust of the city. The owners are readily available and friendly, and are always making sure everything is going smoothly.

Room Tip: It is worth bumping up to one of the suites to have a pool view or a balcony. Our Executive Suite h...

I had a nice room with balcony. It seemed to be newly painted and well maintained. However there was a strange smell during the first days.
Bed was good. Wifi was fast enough. I liked the breakfast with a choice of eggs, real coffee(!!), toast, fruits.
The recpetionist and the owner were helpful with giving advice about auto-rikshaw and taxi fares.
The rooms to the garden are quiet, although the main road at night is empty.
I like the buffet-style lunch and dinner.
I would stay there again.

I stayed four nights in a top floor room overlooking the pool. The room was huge and comfortably furnished, very reminiscent of the 1950's, the era in which the house was built. The room was clean, quiet, and housekeeping did a good job. Some bathroom fixtures could be upgraded however. I enjoyed the flatscreen tv with a good range of English language channels and the free wifi.

Special mention should be made of the staff in the restaurant who were fun and friendly and happyto offer you something new to try.

This is avery good medium range option in Jaipur. Recommended.
