“Warm and cozy - A guest house tucked away in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

A friend recommended Tara Niwas as she knew when I travel I would rather stay at a guest house than do a hotel. This awesome villa converted into a two floor guest house was surprisingly very good. The cleanliness is worth mentioning and the room service is incredible. Oh ! they have free Wifi, which is awesome when travel is work related. Did not get a chance to eat any meals here but their tea was pretty decent. The front lawn is awesome to sit and have a cuppa on a winter morning soaking in the sun with the cute little sassas (rabbits) running around.
We were provided with good heaters for the room during the winter. the 24 hr hot water service was useful.
Would definitely recommended it to people who like this kind of a stay.

Room Tip: Second Floor First room from the balcony is pretty cool.

A friend recommended Tara Niwas, and it was a good place to stay while I was in Jaipur. The hotel is clean, well-maintained, and I was very appreciative of the reverse-osmosis water filtration system. There are great features like the space heaters and lockable safes in the rooms, and rooms are a comfortable size. The restaurant is very careful in its food preparation, and offers a good variety of items at reasonable prices. The laundry service was excellent and I always had help getting a cab or tuktuk when I needed one. Since Tara Niwas is a part of the Arya Niwas hotel system, it is possible to book tours, change traveler's cheques, and get extra information and services that some other hotels might not have. I just wish I spoke Hindi, because then I could have worked out a little confusion on food orders, tours, etc.

Room Tip: Long-stay travelers may qualify for a discount, and rooms on the higher floors have nice access to b...

Fantastic welcoming place to stay as well as clean, comfortable, and friendly. Not to mention great home cooked food! Located in a quiet area with easy access to all you want to do while visiting Jaipur, pleasant dining area and wonderful balconies to relax on after your busy activities.

We stumbled on Tara Niwas at the recommendation of friends and weren't disappointed. it's sort of older accommodations, fairly spacious and designed for longer stays (the proprietors also run a more traditional hotel called Arya Niwas that I would check out as well). We were there briefly so I'm not sure we benefited from the larger refrigeror or extra space. At about 3000 rupees it was pretty fairly priced midlevel rooming.

I usually stay at Tara Niwas during my frequent visits to Jaipur. It has become a 'home away from home' as some of my stays have been more than a week at a stretch. For it's price, it offers the cleanest rooms, free wifi, and excellent food options (all made fresh) in its kitchen. Even the bread, jam and pickle are home made. I used their cars on my last visit and found all of them clean and the drivers pleasant and safe. The hotel is frequented by guests who are professors or artists or writers so it's a good place to meet up with people.

Room Tip: Do ask for a room at the back of the hotel as the ones in front have some noise from the road

It has been a pleasure to serve your groups over the years. It has been very satisfying to know that they have generally been happy with the services offered, notwithstanding certain irritating bill mix ups!

I had stayed in this hotel during my trip ( December, 2012) to Jaipur with family friends. My first choice was Arya Niwas (belonging to the saame group) where I had stayed earlier during my previous trip. However since Arya Niwas was booked I was advised that I can stay in Tara niwas by their reservation executive, I was skeptical eventhough the reivews about the hotel was good in trip advisor. The price at which this guest house room comes ( total 19 rooms) and the efficient manner the rooms are maintained is excellent. The ammenities provided are all essential ( may not be extravagant as we see in the high priced star hotels) but well thought. The room was clean, well maintained, they had a smal resturant but food waas good. Overall best budget option.
