“Great heritage home-stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

'Barwara Kothi' is a charming colonial villa that gives you a flavour of royalty coupled with a comfortable stay. Located in an upmarket area away from the hustle-bustle of Jaipur, the property is beautiful with spacious rooms. The place is squeaky clean, the staff is courteous, and the owner Deepali is helpful and hospitable. We were glad we picked it over a 4 star luxury hotel. We enjoyed our stay here and have already recommended it to family and friends!

Cosy bed & big bedroom, lovely bathroom, nice balcony to enjoy a beer on in the evenings... What more could you ask for?

Well, good food would be nice. Good thing the breakfasts and evening meals were delicious! The breakfast buffet provided enough of a selection to cater for all tastes and the evening meals were also enjoyable. If you want to eat out there is a good restaurant (spice court. i would definitely recommend eating here) just a couple of minutes walk down the street and if you crave western food we saw a Pizza Hut just a short tuk tuk ride away.

The historic centre of Jaipur is easily accessible via tuk tuk and should you need any assistance finding out about Jaipur, Deepali, the owner of the hotel, is very helpful and friendly.

Barwara Kothi was recommended to us by Deepak Singh of Spiritual Journeys in Massachusetts, a man we have never met but who arranges travel for someone I know in Chicago. Every place he found for us was fantastic. This place is located close to the city and all the places you want to see, but once in the gates you are nestled in tranquility. Each night we were able to join in the dance and joy of the wedding processions and then retreat back to our cozy room and amazing hosts. The food was fantastic, even the other guests were friendly, engaging and sharing in their journeys. Made Jaipur even more memorable. And did I mention it is beautiful, elegant but yet comfortable.

Room Tip: I was giving them all excellents and couldn't delete the swimming pool that they don't have...

It was a lovely homestay for us. The house is very aesthetically decorated with all artefacts and heirlooms and family pictures, gives a very warm feeling as you enter. The owner Deepali an extremely helpful and courteous lady made our stay quite comfortable. The rooms were nice and spotlessly clean and spacious with a nice open balcony that overlooked a lawn. We stayed for 3 days and had a lovely time. The attendants were equally good. Would recommend strongly to all those who are looking for a peaceful stay in a central location amidst a bustling city!!

This was a rare find and somewhere that I will return to.

The house and grounds are beautiful. The house is spotlessly clean and the rooms generously proportioned and we'll decorated.

It's also very close to the train station and in a very good part of the city.

Only ate breakfast there - its was good and set us up for the day.

Only negative was that is you are travelling with kids and request a kids bed, the bed is a camp bed and very hard.

however don't let this detract from booking at this property.

We were also lucky enough to hook up with a taxi driver, Salim, who was invaluable. PM me is you would like his details.

Barwara Kothi is lovely place to stay in Jaipur. We stayed at for 2 nights and absolutely loved the experience. We stayed in a wide variety of accommodation during our time in India and were delighted to find that Barwara Kothi was spotlessly clean. The rooms were the same and the beds were extremely comfortable.

Ms Deepali house is lovely, and the family were very welcoming. She's showed us round their gardens which were fantastic. we really enjoyed it. The boys were all really friendly and very helpful.


I would thoroughly recommend this homestay to anyone looking to visit Jaipur.
