If this hotel is comparable in price to the other hotels we stayed at in Rajasthan, then it is great for the price (see paragraph below on my trip, I actually don’t know what the hotel was paid for our stay). The location is out of the city center, so you’ll need to take a taxi into town, though it may be walkable if that’s your thing.
Extremely clean rooms with numerous amenities – space heater in the room (nice since we went through Rajasthan in the winter), a bathtub clean and big enough that our two girls could take a bath. Though the hot water was a mere trickle, at least in our room. There’s a dance show in the restaurant every night, though I saw advertisements for this type of dance in several hotels in the area.
They have free internet in their business center, though I found the computer to be old and cranky, and the electricity went out twice in 30 minutes for a few seconds, which resulted in me having to restart the computer each time. There is also an exercise room, though I did not check this out.
This hotel was nice enough that we talked our driver into staying here for a third night instead of our scheduled two. Though part of that was due to the fact that we all needed some warmth and a good wash, as our previous hotels had been cold and the bathrooms not as nice.
Restaurant is ok, priced at slightly higher than usual tourist levels than other tourist restaurants. Though they do have beer and wine.
The staff is friendly and responsive. We called them at 8pm to do something about the hot water. Someone arrived promptly, but wasn’t really able to fix it. But we appreciated the timely effort.
I would stay here again if I were in Jaipur and the price was right. The main downside is that it is not in the old city, you just have to decide if that’s ok with you.
Background of my trip through India: my wife and I traveled with our two kids, ages 6 & 7, through India for five weeks in Dec 2013/Jan 2014. On two legs of our trip we hired a car and driver, and took trains and taxis for the other parts of the trip. We are Americans, but live outside of the US in a third world country. When looking for a hotel, cleanliness is a prime consideration for us, followed by location and price. I always appreciate a place that appears to have friendly and responsive management. We consider ourselves to be ‘budget travelers’, but now that we have kids and are more fastidious about cleanliness, we have upped the budget a bit and no longer go for the absolute cheapest option that Lonely Planet and/or Trip Advisor have to offer.
On our trip through Rajasthan, we were rather cold during the evenings and found rooftop/outdoor restaurants to be often to chilly to eat in. Not that it is so incredibly cold in Rajasthan, but we live in a hot climate, so we have become unaccustomed to it being so cold.
When we were with a car and driver, we stayed at hotels for 1-2 night in each city, and the hotel was chosen for us by the tour agency, so we were not aware of the price of the room. However, the quality of the rooms was comparable to what we would have chosen anyways. To give you an idea of our budgetary considerations, in Delhi, Goa, and Mumbai, we were paying about 2000-2900 rupees per night for our family of four, often in a room with one large bed, or a medium size bed with a mattress on the floor, or sometimes three twin-sized beds. Outside of these cities, this type of room seemed to be priced at 1500-2000.
