“Pretty and comfortable room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The room itself was extremely spacious and was decorated in a heritage style. The bathroom had adequate facilities -- nothing to complain about.

The breakfast/dinner area was pleasant, cozy and the service was impeccable. The location is a little ways off from the main road so it's quiet but could also feel a bit dodgy at night.

Internet in the room was not available (signal was very weak on our floor), so you had to go to the ground floor for the free internet.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I enjoyed it.

We visited Jaipur for the first time in April and were fortunate enough to be booked at Dera Rawatsar. This family-run hotel features beautiful, large and clean rooms and bathrooms, and a lovely guest lounge with a number of interesting artifacts from the region on display. An added bonus is the small swimming pool - very refreshing after a day's sightseeing. The staff were courteous and helpful, the food was very good (although more spice would have been nice - we are used to hot food), and the gardens were well-tended.

I wouldn't hesitate even a brief while to say that this was the absolute best among all the places we've stayed at in Rajasthan. The staff here were an absolute delight. The food was fabulous. The hostess, Mandvi, was extremely happy to interact with us and provide insights into Jaipur and how to go about it. The most amazing part of this place is the care with which it has been decorated and things put in place to take care of every small detail in a wonderfully artful manner!

How lovely to have a special evening to celebrate Chrsitmas! It was cold, so the outdoor buffet was warmed with fire pits. Lovely rooms, great breakfast, wonderful service. We particularly appreciated having free WiFi in the room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Glad to know that you had a lovely stay and a wonderful celebration during Christmas at Dera Rawatsar. We are so fortunate that our efforts and sincere dedication of our team has come to yield in the form of your kind words. We will share your comments with the entire staff because we are sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our members.

It’s true, in Jaipur heating up outdoor spaces in chilly evenings is something very traditional as well as royally stylish. And the appeal gets even louder when you are attending an outdoor buffet, celebrating a special evening with boutique hotel like us!

We look forward to your next check in with us.

Had a fantastic stay at Dera Rawatsar. Very well located, extremely peaceful as its a little away from the main road, excellent food and great room service. Thankful to the lady & her Mom-in-law managing the hotel, i was 4 hours early to my check-in time & as the hotel was completely occupied, they allowed us to relax at their residence which is just next door. Amazing hospitality. The only -ve is a very small swimming pool.
Would definately recommend Dera to all travellers.

Room Tip: Choose the Super Deluxe on the back side. Its quiet & offers good balcony space.

Stayed at Dera Rawatsar for the second time in four years. First time was in 2008 when I was travelling with a friend and chanced upon this hotel. The rooms did not disappoint - especially recommend room 206 which is where I stayed both times. It has the loveliest hotel bathroom I have ever seen - sprawling and luxurious. The food is average and breakfast is not as great as one might have expected but the staff is friendly and kind and they work hard to make you feel at home. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Jaipur :)

Room Tip: Room 206 :)

Clean hotel, with great service and consistent hot water. The staff were lovely and the place had a nice setting - which made us quickly forget about the missed pick-up from the train station.

Location was good, close to the train station, but you need take a rickshaw to get into town. Laundry was a bit overpriced, so would recommend getting it done somewhere else.

We never got to enjoy a swim in the pool, but it looked welcoming and clean. This is one of the best hotels we stayed at in India. Would recommend.
