I have only ever given one other hotel an excellent before but this one deserves it! We stayed here 3 nights after visiting Kolkata, Varanasi, New Dehli and now Jaipur. This hotel has to be the best by far for many reasons.
Often when hotels have good ratings on Tripadvisor the prices are dramatically increased. This place is rated well and priced well! That is what keeps people coming back.
The location is great as it is out of the main centre in a quiet up-market residential area. It's approx. 5-10 mins in tuk tuk but only 5 mins from the train station which they can organise a pick-up - but you can easily walk as we did.
The actual villa/hotel is a beautiful heritage building with a fabulous garden that offers a peaceful and relaxing time. The decor is traditional/antique style and very classy & beautiful artwork.
The best part about this hotel is the hospitality of the staff and FANTASTIC restaurant! Every meal was tasty! The kitchen is open and clean. The menu is great - an extensive mix of Indian and European at reasonable prices. We had breakfast/lunch and dinner here! We had Indian most nights (Channa Masala and Aloo Gobhi - Yum!). Then tried the pizza and pasta one night which was great! The cappuccino/masala tea and banana lassi are particularly good, oh and desert! We ate out once at another hotel but much preferred Anuraag Villa.
Our room was semi-deluxe (no a/c but didn't need it) on the bottom floor and was clean, bright and had a pleasant bathroom attached with a decent toilet! The hot water worked well and the water drained adequately! I mention these factors as other places we have stayed in India - the bathrooms have been fairly run down. Bed, towels and linen all comfortable and clean. We even did laundry at the hotel and it was returned the same day!
The only thing I encourage is for the hotel to be more competitive with the rates/prices on tours. We wanted to booked through the hotel and inquired but then visited the Rajasthan Tourism Office where there were more flexible options at better prices.
I wish we had longer at Anuraag but we will be back!
