Stayed there for two nights. Located in a nice quiet residental area but not much of interest around, no restaurants, you'll need to take a taxi for anything. The rooms are dark and have seen better days - I guess they're just shabby, but they're clean. Some very adventurous plumbing and electrics in bathroom. The communal terrace is very nice, and so is the small gardens. The owner is very friendly and will give you some good advice on places to visit. They offer free pick-ups, which is great, as Jaipur Train station is mayhem. The hotel's rickshaw driver will try to take you to rubbish shops for commission, so beware - I'd have expected that from some touts but not a fairly respectable hotel and things got a little unpleasant as some of the 'factory shops' are a little out of the way, and we had bo become quite firm saying that we didn't like the merchandise and wouldn't buy- not sure the hotel owner is aware of those little 'extras'.
Other than that, a decent place to stay in pricey Jaipur.
