“Good stay but too much expensive food”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

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 !

The review by our esteemed guest is a mix bag and we take his criticism as an opportunity to improve ourselves.
The taxi charges for the pick up are decided by our travel desk person which is an independent authority and is not controlled by us.Our commitment of a free pick up from the railway station and bus stand remains firm .So the rate quoted by the travel desk is what we quote further to the guest and in this case i had only given an idea about the rate and not confirmed it .

A hotel review should be about its location , rooms ,facilities provided , service quality, staff behavior , food quality & prices. Our esteemed guest did find the staff courteous and well behaved and the rooms were neat & clean to his satisfaction.

Utsav Niwas is located in a peaceful residential locality called Ambabari which is 5 km from the MI Road (10 min by tuk tuk),5 km from the walled city(10-12 min from tuk tuk), the Hawa Mahal & city palace complex is 15 min by a tuk tuk. , and usually the tuk tuk charges vary from Rs 80-100 (less than 2$).
The hotel is 1 km from the Banipark area where majority of good hotels in Jaipur are located.In our immediate vicinity there are 4 big & popular hotels operating.

We at Utsav Niwas out rightly reject the allegation that we keep the f&b rates high to rob foreigners / local tourists .Our service standards and work ethics are reflective enough of our integrity and intentions. The food we serve is of high quality and the rates are clearly mentioned on the menu card.However the management has taken a serious note about f&b prices and some changes are being considered .

We stayed in this hotel while visiting the Lit fest in January. The hotel is newly constructed and looks small from outside. But once you go in, you really are in for a surprise. The hotel is clean and spacious and so are the rooms. I had a very large room to myself and a spacious bathroom. The stay was extremely comfortable and I did not need to call up room service to order anything as everything had been thought of and provided for in the room. The large room had been used up nicely with furniture. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. I am definitely coming back here on my next visit to Jaipur.

Room Tip: Ask for the bigger rooms, my friends had a smaller room compared to mine!

during my stay in Jaipur this time i was looking for a mid budget property which is not touristy and i came across this jewel and i should say just wonderful was my stay with Utsav niwas , the staff was amazing and our host even much better. Mr Singh was willing to help us in all the ways possible.
The price was excellent for the royal services we received. I was only thinking about staying for 2 days in Jaipur but to be in this place which is nothing less then a palace i had to extend it by another 2 days.
I will say do not miss the chance to stay in this place and specially get an appointment to talk with the owner Mr. singh who would give you the best advice about the city.
I am looking forward to stay there again , very soon.

Have memories of a perfectly relaxed and laid back holidaying at Utsav Niwas. The staff was extremely hospitable. The rooms are spacious and clean. Besides the rooms there is a terrace which gives you a nice view of the city. It gives you a nice peaceful haveli feel. Breakfast and food was good and served well. The stay overall was comfortable and delightful.

Stayed here with a friend for two nights while in jaipur. The manager was very helpful in organsing our sightseeing trips and the staff were very friendly and hardworking. Acknowledging your presence everytime and asking you how you were. The dinner setting on the rooftop provided a relaxed setting for dinner of a high standard offering indian cuisine with authentic rajasthani entertainment.

The rooms were very clean and modern with a cable tv and a bathroom which would not be out of place in a large hotel chain

Overall very pleased with service and room faciltiies and the manager's accomodating nature to any reasonable requests you may have. Highly recommend it at the price! Close to station and the old city

Room Tip: very nice stay

Good price, very nice staff, quieter area than center jaipur, nice accomodation all that you need... Was nice to have a newspaper at the door in the mornings, room was quiet at night and temperature was nice. Bathroom was all well equiped and the wooden furniture makes the place welcome. 10mins rickshaw from town center, safe area.

I found this hotel via tripadvisor a few months ago and when I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that to find it amazingly well priced, and a bargain if you're sharing the room. Kush was an amazing host and the staff were very diligent in their service.
The restaurant food was great too, and the cook was more than happy to share his recipes with us!
