“Great Stay.... You can't get better value for money anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I stayed at Arya Niwas for three nights. By the last week of February, 2013. Me, my wife, my son (three year old), my parents (senior citizens). Pretty heterogenous population. You can't say that everybody would be pleased with the same thing....... but, yet, that happened. Every one of us wanted to give Arya Niwas 5 stars.
Start with location. Great. Walking distance from the Pink City. But, would you believe, you won't feel like you are staying in a congested city.
Then ambience. You just have to stay there to believe it.
Very commonly, people upload a photograph from a convenient angle......and one would be cheated into believing that the place is gorgeous or the garden/room is huge. No such problem with Arya Niwas. Rooms are large. Though it would be better if you book their best rooms. The lawn is beautiful - easy to place seven or eight tables, each accommodating four persons. The veranda, both on the ground floor as well as in the second floor are great.
Next food. This, I should say, is the only weak point. You won't get anything non-veg (except eggs). They have a vegetarian restaurant only. But, it must be mentioned that they serve good food at a very reasonable price. Also, the bakery is excellent.
However, here I would like to draw the Arya Niwas management's attention : they are catering to a lot of foreign tourists and the only beverage from India that is simply world's best is the Darjeeling tea. But, unfortunately, the tea at Arya Niwas is pretty average and the brownish liquid they provide in the name of Darjeeling tea is far below average. So, if you must have tea there, don't go for the Darjeeling. On the other hand, the filter coffee is excellent. I hope the management there would rectify this problem and would be able to serve decent Darjeeling tea.
The staff are all cordial. Specially I would like to mention Mr. Rathode at the reception - a very decent and gentle young man, who was always helpful. He always tries his best to make your stay comfortable.
Lastly, their small curio shop. I have always believed that these curio shops in a hotel, especially where a lot of foreigners stay, are meant to rob people. But, not in Arya Niwas. Mr. Gajendra Singh is a perfect gentleman. And some of the things available at that shop were actually cheaper than at the market.
So, stay at Arya Niwas. Great place. Great rooms. If you are a non-veg, you have to do with their veg thalis, but still you'll be very happy staying there. I know one can find better places....but, I don't believe that you can find one at this price....even, at twice this price!!!!!

Room Tip: Stay in any of their rooms. We were a family of four & stayed at rooms 223 and 224, adjacent roo...

Greetings from Arya Niwas Hotel Jaipur.

Thank you for taking out the time to write a review, and for your kind words. Thank you for the elaborate feedback as well. It is thanks to such feed backs that we are able to modify/amend/improve our services. I am looking into the leaf tea issue. We are using Lipton Green Label as of now, but I am open to other, maybe smaller players that can give a better quaity tea.

Arya Niwas is excellent value. The service is friendly, the food is good, the location is central and i always see returning customers. The rooms are quite basic, but always clean (not a given in India). I always enjoy my stay there and have returned several times.

A fine medium size hotel in a quiet location despite the craziness of the close road. Clean, comfortable and cosy...goog value for money than normally would be suited for less. I come back and back again over the years

I visit Jaipur every year and love staying here. It is very safe and secure for a woman travelling alone, everyone is very helpful and the food is great! It is in a fantastic central location very handy for sightseeing or business.

Greetings from Arya Niwas Hotel Jaipur.

Thank you for taking out the time to write a review, and for your kind words. I am glad you found the hotel safe especially for ladies. All our hotels are family managed and the house ladies are actively involved in the management. So, in a way this is a company where the women actually have the upper hand!

I stayed in Arya Niwas/Jaipur in 2010. The Hotel is very comfortable, clean and has a nice architecture, with a spacious and beautiful garden. Amenities were adequate, breakfast choices are plenty and I liked all the ones I tried, especially the plain fruit salad and fruit salads with curd are very delicious. I stayed only 2 nights indeed but I was able to hire a yoga instructor there to give me a yoga class at the hotel, this was also a plus for me. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to stay in Jaipur.

I am glad you liked our food, especially the menu items with fruits! India is a great place to have fruits, especially the summer months, but then so is Turkey!
I will pass on your comments to the yoga instructor as well.

This lovely hotel is very well located minutes from railway and bus station and just outside the walls of the old city. I have been staying here for business trips for the last eight years and always enjoy the experience. The hotel is very clean, quiet and well managed with helpful, courteous staff. The garden courtyard is a welcome oasis and the restaurant provides good vegetarian food. The standard rooms are fine and for very little extra you an enjoy a spacious, lovely deluxe room. My wife and I always look forward to our stays at the Arya Niwas and we have never been disappointed. Excellent value for money and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room facing the garden - brilliant
