I booked this hotel through internet. I stayed from 13th October to 15th October, 2012. I requested the owner Mr. Kush Sing via e-mail to arrange for a car for me from the airport to Hotel Utsav Niwas. He agreed and informed me the rate for car hiring to be Rs. 500.
But, few days later when I again mailed him to confirm the car hiring, he increased the rate at Rs. 700.
However I paid Rs. 700 to the driver Mr. Lalit and reached Hotel Utsav Niwas with my family. It is important to say that the staff of this hotel is well behaved and courteous. The building is well decorated. The rooms are large and clean .
But it is noteworthy that the hotel is situated far from the main city center. Every time I had to pay extra money to go to M.I.Road area.
Secondly, the price of food is exorbitant in comparison to its quality and amount. As per Indian standard, the food is too much expensive. The hotel authority perhaps targets the foreigners to collect huge money from them.
As for example, the price of 1 liter bottled water is Rs. 15, but the hotel authority takes Rs. 50. It is amazing that the price of "lassi" is Rs. 100, but the famous "Lassiwala" of Jaipur sells it at a price Rs. 17 (for medium glass) and Rs. 34 (for large glass). It is unbelievable that the price of 2 pieces of 'gulab jamun' is Rs. 100 whereas the market price is Rs. 20 only !!! The price of two pieces of chilly chicken is Rs. 280 !!!
If I go again to Jaipur, I'll never go to Utsav Niwas because of its distant location and excessive pricing of food !
