“A lovely oasis of calm to recharge on your Indian adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The lawns, airy corridors and terraces and !library! give the place an enchanting, almost colonial, feel. The vague and quirky setup of the restaurant, with a 'payment counter' to order food which is then brought to you by a waiter added to the feeling of a bygone era of Government guesthouses.

The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and sitting with a cup of tea on the tranquil lawn is a wonderful escape from the hectic chaos of Jaipur.

In contrast, the hotel "business centre" was very efficient and professional in booking our train travel and the hotel Wifi was good.

The rooms were comfortable, spacious and very clean.

If you have small children, the alarming low 'balconies' on the upper floors could be a concern.

Thank you for taking out the time to write a review. Thank you also for the kind words.

The balconies that you mention, are these the passage balconies or the terrace garden roof? We do plan to get the terrace garden balcony height rectified this year, as for the passages, we are putting brass rods over the railings to act as a deterrent for anyone tipping over (god forbid!). In fact we have already put brass roads on the top floor and work at the other floors is ongoing.
Have a happy healthy and safe year ahead and hope to see you again at Arya Niwas and Jaipur!

Firstly, the hotel is clean, and the staff is friendly. The front desk arranged car trips for us and advised me on a fair price for motorcycle taxis to various locations around the city. India can be a difficult place for westerners to travel, and at the end of the day it was nice to return to this hotel and wake up here the next morning. There is an attached restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we enjoyed it every day. In the morning we sat by the garden sipping tea, and eating paratha, and in the evening we returned to have an evening thali. The bells of a nearby mosque and the sound of birds may wake you early in the morning. We were able to overlook these things and enjoyed our stay very much!

We have a healthy population of house sparrow birds that seem to thrive at our hotel premises. Joyous little creatures that can get a little noisy but are fun to watch! Sometimes, we also get a pair of parrots, but they are just visitors not permanent residents!
Have a happy healthy and safe year ahead and hope to see you again at Arya Niwas and Jaipur!

Stayed at Arya Niwas with my parents. Nice well decorated rooms. Food at the cafe is just like home made food. Nice place to stay and relax in your vacations. Plus they also have a transport hub which helps you plan trips to nearby places. Great Lawn- One can also enjoy meals in the open. It is very well managed. Staff is also very helpful. They also have a beautiful lounge where one can sit and read in peace. No problem in sightseeing- connectivity is good. Eco friendly practices like to save water are followed by the staff. Awesome ambience. I must say it was a great hotel experience and definitely a value for money. Overall it is a great place to stay and unwind.

This place is an old standard in Jaipur, and offers good service, clean rooms, a nice terrace and a very lovely garden. The garden is especially nice as a place unwind after a day of sightseeing, and the on-site travel agency is helpful and well-connected. The food in the restaurant is tasty and the staff very gracious.....thought the front desk staff seem a bit harried at times.

Room Tip: Rooms 204, 304 and 404 are out of the way, quiet and have lovely private balconies.

The front office staff may feel a little overworked at times, however this is no excuse for not being cheerful. I will try to train the staff better.

Stay at Hotel Arya Niwas was a wonderful experience. They are very organized and systematic and surpassed my expectations. My stay in Jaipur was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and booked taxis with them to all the forts and also Chokhi Dhani. They have no tipping policy and hence it was a pleasant experience not having people hovering around you for tips.

I would recommend this hotel to anybody is looking forward to stay at a hotel with good food, and good ambiance. The rooms were absolutely clean and tidy, especially the bathrooms. The staff was courteous.
The only thing that I didn't like is the taxi service that the hotel offers. The hotel has their own taxi service and they offer sightseeing tours. The price is reasonable and cars are in good condition, but the drivers are overbearing. They tend to take you to those restaurants/shops where they get commission. So even if you ask the driver to take you to a particular restaurant which somebody has recommended, the drivers will manipulate you into going to the one that they get commission from.

Room Tip: If possible opt for rooms on the 1st floor. They are better than the ones on 3rd floor
