Hotel Gangaur RTDC
Ranked #158 of 428 Specialty Lodging in Jaipur
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We decided to start the year with a short n quick trip to Jaipur. First experience with RTDC hotels. May be our expectations were more. Gangaur is a good budget hotel with a good location if only some areas are improved. Reception is not tourist friendly, found difficult to get information about tour programs. Rooms were OK but room service was a bit slow. Breakfast remained same with no much choice. Had a bad experience while checking out. Although hotel claims to have credit card facility in their web site but the staff was keen to have cash transaction only. "The machine is not working", " There is an ATM machine just across the road " are some of the remarks we faced. Good handicraft stuff for sale near the reception.

I couldn't have asked for more for the price I paid for my rooms. The rooms were big and clean. Hotel is located at central Jaipur, very close to attractions and markets. The food at restaurant was decent, however they were struggling to cope with huge demand at breakfast buffet.
I would anytime prefer this hotel than the smaller ones like Pearl Palace that have been converted out of residences. Gangaur feels more secure.

Room Tip: We choose to stay on ground floor. Don't remember exactly but guess the room numbers were 108/10...

Its a clean big hotel in the center of city .it is having all the facilities of a good hotel and still a budget hotel as rooms starts at about US dollars100.As its a govt hotel so staffs lacks some manners but still the Rajasthani ambiance makes them better than their other INDIAN counterparts.
Overall a good hotel and very well connected to the city.Food is great,order Rajasthani meal at dinner as its really good.

RTDC is having good spacious room and ample parking space in most of the places. In jaipur we used to stay in Hotel gangaur many times, but always felt that staff need to improve their political will to serve the beneficiaries. The food is also very good and the staff those who served always expect big tips for everything. The management is functioning like a triple sarkari system. No welcome to the guest on arrival. I think RTDC should think to sensitise their employees to change their attitude, behaviour and overall brush to personality development.

Room Tip: Rooms are o.kay but sometimes you may get the used bedsheets or towels

We were on a budget this time, so we decided to go ahead with RTDC Ganguar as a base for our Rajasthan & Agra Tour, being a Government Hotel you should expect it to be safe and affordable to some extent (which it is).

Did the booking online on their website, was pretty smooth. I liked its location, while it isn't near any major markets or restraunts, its not too far from the highway to other cities in Rajasthan and its not too far from the old Jaipur city, which made traveling and easy task for us. Its also not far from the airport (15 min drive).

We opted for a Superior AC Room (don't go for anything lower, as they can be pretty shabby), costed us about 2300 Rps + Taxes per night, on a high season which was decent enough. The Room isn't exceptional but not too bad. Bed was super firm, i actually found it to give me pretty good sleep. The room was clean and you can always call house service, TV was old but provided good selection of ENGLISH channels, watched NatGEO & Discovery every night before bed! Bathroom is usable, clean, no spiders and cockroaches, You shower with a bucket which is fine and i found it to be pleasant.

Breakfast is free of cost, but terrible. There are 2 dishes, Idly + Sambar (South indian cuisine) and that's it, it wasn't even good. In Room dining is OVERPRICED, but you don't have much choice given the fact there arent many resturants near by, unless you want to walk 20 min. And Selection is large, but didn't like the quality. Had noodles everyday which was edible.

Don't expect much "service" or "friendliness". No one is rude here, but no one will go out of their way either. Its expected in a government run Hotel, which is fine i had no issues with them, infact everyone was good and helpful to some extent.

I do recommend this hotel, to anyone of any nationality. Many people might think this hotel is mainly for "locals" but i found that not to be true, there were tourists from all around the world here. Its safe and decent, good location and good value for a budget traveler but don't flaunt your valuables around ofcourse, that's the rule in any hotel.

Room Tip: Take the superior AC room, nothing lower.

Its a RTDC property but well managed and decent service given by the hotel. I have been to MTDC goa and it was a nightmare, so compared to MTDC, RTDC scores. Food was good, staff was decent, laundry service was good.OK, the rooms can be better so can be the bedsheets, and other things. Am sure they will look into it and make it a better place to stay. I would still recommend this place.

The best thing about this hotel is its location; central, well connected but still at a distance from all noise and pollution. Choose ground floor rooms (AC Superior); the minor price difference is worth much more. Don't expect very good services, it being a state tourism facility. Restaurants have good food but limited availability of menu items, and time restrictions.

Room Tip: Book in advance so that you can get the best rooms that are located on the ground floor and are call...
