“Beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The hotel is beautiful and my three night stay was quite comfortable. The included high speed Wi-Fi was an added bonus. My room was at the end of the third floor and didn't have a private balcony, but there is seating all along the way and up a few stairs, there is a larger sitting area. I was traveling on my own and the front desk can help arrange guides and transportation. The hotel is on a quiet street and the roof top restaurant was quite nice. They have entertainment in the evening and the musicians and dancers are wonderful. I had an early train to catch on the day I left and they allowed me an early check out. They were also very nice to accomodate my request for a couple of bananas as I would miss breakfast and they included a small sandwich as well--a nice bonus. Would definitely stay there again.

The Umaid Bhawan Heritage House Hotel is a truly distinct experience, especially during your first visit to India like it was in my case. The rich, colorful Indian decorations, the paintings, the statues and the mosaic in the interior yard just add a kind of magic that makes India so special.
The rooms are clean and modern, with an LCD TV and air conditioning and all the amenities you would expect in a decent hotel. My room also had a balcony, overlooking the Collectorate district of Jaipur. In the evenings you can enjoy a good meal and the company of friends in the very nice rooftop restaurant.
I am happy to give this place a well-deserved 5-star rating and recommend it to you because it has so much character which you simply don't get in other places that all shortcomings - like the less than average breakfast options - just pale in comparison. And, let's not forget, you get all this for hostel money by European or North American standards...

Complete with a delicious roof top restaurant with traditional music and dancing, this hotel was one of the highllights of our trip. Large very clean rooms (ask for a balcony), friendly staff with reasonable command of english, free wi-fi, air conditioner (a bit clunky but quite serviceable), comfy bed, front desk access to well priced and readily available transport, and architecural and design character that goes on and on... this place was much more enoyable --and way more affordable -- than several 5 star places we stayed in. (One tip: in the morning. let the hot water run for a minute or two before stepping in the shower. It's there but it can take a little time to get to the room. Also, it doesn;t hurt to be generous when tipping the dinner entertainment. They put on a good show and work hard.)

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony. A balcony room on the 4th floor is best but keep you doors and windows closed at...

This is a great looking hotel... It has the atmosphere of real heritage. However, check-in staff could have been more friendly n breakfast is really poor as there are limited choices and service was slow. Could have been a fantastic hotel if not for these. Won't hesitate to stay here again. One more thing - their dogs were given dog beds to sleep out front. Very kind of them...

This was our second stay at the Umaid Bhawan in Jaipur.
It is an excellent hotel. The staff was excellent, very helpful, within
minutes of a call they were at the door. Rooms very clean, bathroom
was great and always had hot water. Food was good and wait staff
very courteous. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband & I stayed at umaid bhawan in early December 2012. We had spend 2 weeks around other parts of Rajasthan & jaipur was our last leg of journey. We were very impressed with this heritage hotel. We had initially booked the royal deluxe on the internet, but decided to experience the royal suite once we arrived at the hotel. The royal suite was amazing - spacious, beautiful decor... Definitely a royal experience for us! The staff at the hotel were also very good. They were courteous & extremely helpful, without wanting anything in return... Karan, the manager helped us organize an auto for our one day Jaipur tour. The were no extra charges to the hotel for that. He was also kind enough to allow us to have a late check out & store our luggage as we had a late night train. The restaurant was also great & there was live music & performances at night. The buffet breakfast was pretty good too! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Jaipur, not just for the heritage hotel experience but also for the great service & food. For us, it was the perfect way to end our trip in Rajasthan!
