We stayed three nights at the Krishna Palace in Jaipur. We got off to a bad start with the owner – when we arrived we rang from the train station as instructed in his e-mail to get picked up and he said that we were suppose to have arrived at 6am in the morning. We were traveling from Agra by train and had told him, by e-mail, that we were leaving Agra at 6am and arriving in Jaipur at 11am. He yelled at my husband on the phone and told us to arrange our own way to the hotel. When we arrived, he insisted we were wrong and made us pull up the e-mail and prove what we were saying (which we did). He then went into apology mode when it turned out we were right and said he would give us a better room that what we had booked. We paid 1,200 rupees for a double with private bathroom. The room we got had air-conditioning but no TV. The room was huge as was the bed and very well decorated but it looks like they are still renovating the rooms as they were not completely finished. They had a lovely garden restaurant where we had breakfast and a dinner. The service was extremely slow (average 45 minutes even if you ordered toast) but the food was very good and usually worth the wait at dinner time. They offered one PC to use the internet and they also had wireless internet – it was meant to be 100 rupee a day but because they have to give you the password, they wanted us to pay for the three days we stayed. We negotiated this down to 200 for the three days. The hotel is a little way out of town in a nice residential area but there are some shops a five minute walk down the street too buy groceries and rickshaws that will take you into town for 50 rupees. We also had another run in about the management over our washing – it came back one sock short and they immediately went on the defensive saying we only gave them one sock (eventhough they charged us for washing a pair). We asked them to check, and guess what, they had our sock. No apology this time though. I still would recommend staying here.
