“Excellent hotel in Indian style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We stayed at the Umaid Mahal for three nights in October 2012.
Having arrived by train in Jaipur, we got a free pickup which worked out perfectly fine.
The hotel is situated maybe 3km West of the old parts of the city. So it is a 15min drive into town BUT the surroundings of the hotel are perfectly quiet. For us this was a fair trade-off.
The rooms are extremely nicely decorated in Rajasthani style. Materials are of a very high standard - the luxurious rain shower is kept entirely in black marble with a nice glass front. Probably the nicest bathroom we had in India so far.
Chairs and furniture were nicely carved, very dark wood.
Walls and ceiling were extremely delicately painted.
Breakfast was served in a buffet form, both Indian and Continental style, egg dishes were made to order. Food and drinks were good. Service was ok.
They also have a rooftop restaurant with some nice views, but we only had tea there once, so we cannot comment on the food there.
Overall, we definitely recommend this hotel, it was one of the nicest hotels we had in India!

We stayed here as we were after a relatively cheap hotel in Jaipur. Our driver had a little difficulty locating the hotel, however I'd put this down to the chaotic streets rather than being in a poor location.

The room itself was fine. Nice bed, although quite firm, and the pillows were very thin and could do with an upgrade.

The bathroom was fine with a massive shower.

The rooftop bar / restaurant was the highlight. Great food and service. All of the dishes served were really tasty. On the down side is the beers are on the expensive side.

Overall, a good priced hotel and I recommend it.

The Hotel is no doubt a good place to stay however what was lacking is the service. We as a family were going out for leisure and upon asking to clear the room at the reception, we were told that you have arrived in the afternoon and you are asking to clean the room in the evening which is not possible.
Not arguing with him, i simply asked to at least take the used utensils from the room which were inside the room after lunch. That was agreed by them however after coming back late night, i saw the utensils still in the room which we get rid of after calling at the reception again.
The above mentioned scenario is self explanatory about the service quality.

Last month, I stayed in umaid mahal for 2 days and found it a good place to stay. Hotel and Service staff was excellent and I had no problems during my stay. I have only 1 suggestion that Internet (wifi) shouldn't be included in cost. It should be an add on in service.

Room Tip: Make the booking before atleast 2 weeks. so that you'll get discounts.

Umaid is the bes place if you are looking for hotel withn the budget. Its elegance is exceptional and the service provided is outstanding. Me and my fiancée had made a trip to Jaipur recently and we both agree that there would be no other that we would chose for our next visit too

The rooms and bathrooms are very clean.
What is painful is the staff who torture you every morning to clean the room.

they keep calling you every morning at least 6 to 7 times and insist on cleaning the room as the staff leave at 12.

They do not understand the concept of jet lag and go by the time table set.

We ordered a pot of milk, and ordered one, instead came a glass of milk because they have a set and standard set up and will not change with the need of the customer.

Very rigid in their ways and i would say the staff really need to learn the meaning of service.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and placed on the top floors
