“A Friendly hotel in the heart of Jaipur”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Arya Niwas is an atmospheric non fuss hotel in the heart of Jaipur. The old building with large rectangular front lawn is pure bliss. Rooms are clean, ensuite bathroom equally clean, furbishing are nice and reflect the local crafts.Bed is comfortable, air conditioner works well. Wifi is free. Restaurant serves good breakfast and dinner.
Booking is easy, going around in Jaipur from here is equally easy.
The place seemed to be haunt of all Jaipur Literary Festival attendees while I was there. Would be back in 2014.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

If you are looking for a budget hotel with an average stay, then you can choose Arya Niwas and it will definitely satisfy your requirements to an extent, PROVIDED, you are considering in line, the amount you are going to spend. Heritage property, very pocket friendly, but not very exciting. Food quality is not upto mark and variety is very limited. Though it has beautiful gardens, where one can have meals and spent time reading or walking, but quality of the rooms and services is just below standards. You will find a lot of foreigner crowd in this property during Winters as Tourist season begins that time, but get excite by that, as most of them are visiting there to save money in accommodation, so that they can spend more on shopping.
You will enjoy the mornings and evenings on the terrace and in the garden on the ground floor, but as said earlier, it is just too good to earn a reasonable level of satisfaction by spending lesser sum of money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the open terrace side

Arya Niwas was a great surprise. The charm of staying in a hertitage propoerty is expreinces best here. We had travelled as a couple and stayed in one of the premium rooms. The room was very cleanm, tastefully done, large and really comfortable. The terrace in particular is a delight to sit on at night. The food is good and well priced. The hotel is a true value for money. It's a family run place which is beaitifully decorated and mainatnied with care and passion. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have visited this beautiful hotel every time I am in Jaipur, at least once a year, if not twice. The hotel is located in the centre of Jaipur so it is close to all the sites of interests and off course Shopping. The rooms are very clean, specially the bathroom. The staff, always polite and friendly. Food is well prepared and tasty. The best thing about Arya Niwas is that it is modern but maintained the heritage of the Raj.

In addition to this, a good selection of books in the library to loose yourself into oblivion, especially when sitting on one of those armchairs in the veranda and feeling like never wanting to get up, just sitting there for hours in the tranquillity of the place, yet few hundred yards away there is the hustling and bustling of the regular crowd of Jaipur.

Room Tip: 'corner suites are large and sunny' but then all rooms are good and will suit someone.

I have visited this hotel on many occasions and find it a little oasis of calm in Jaipur. The rooms are a little basic but always very clean, the staff are exceptional and are always willing to help with any advice i may need. The kitchens are some of the cleanest i have ever seen, the food is always well cooked and their fruit salads are something i always look forward to. The travel bureau give wonderful advice on onward journeys giving hints on the best and cheapest ways to travel. There is an excellent gift shop whose prices are some of the best in town. A very safe and comfortable environment for the single traveler and families alike. The only downside are the hosts of auto rickshaws plying for trade, but these respond well to a simple 'no thank you'.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right are quieter, the larger a/c rooms with a balcony are worth the extra. Beware of m...
