Very nice friendly hospitable staff, convenient great location, very nice beautiful hotel though the breakfast was poorly presented comparing to the status of the hotel, it can be better for such a hotel. But in general, the stay was very good. We enjoyed every moment of it.

We had an overnight stay at the hotel and it has been a memorable experience. The place is so close to the city yet so quiet and peaceful. The staff is quite courteous and responsive. The ambience is soothing. It is a place worth revisiting.

Also the room in which you have stayed Room 104 and 105 is always my priority to give the same to my guests as these rooms gives lot of openness , light and faces towards garden and most important have a balcony

I went to this hotel with my wife and 3 year old kid. All the heritage rooms and other category of rooms are done up in a different style with a blend of heritage and King's era being portrayed. Even the lowest category of room (heritage) are spacious and provide all the luxury for comfort living. The rooms of the hotel are just awesome, you can't even imagine the luxury and architecture and minute detail which has been taken care in designing the rooms. It’s truly awesome. Swimming pools and other area outside hotels rooms are well maintained. The big green area in this property is simply superb. Gym is in a bad shape. Staff is courteous, polite and always helpful. Food is very good. I would strongly recommend this hotel. It simply exceeds our expectation.

Room Tip: Choose green facing rooms. Rooms on higher floor and facing swimming pool is the best. Ask for King...

The Raj Palace is a wonderful place to stay. The staff are very kind and attentive. The rooms and gardens are large and opulent. I was very happy to stay there and enjoyed the peace and quite removed from the city. The food in the main restaurant was delicious, but there could be more variety. Coffee and tea facilities in the room would be appreciated.
Well done Raj staff, you really were very kind I look forward to returning.

Reasonably priced room rates for a well located hotel. We enjoyed our stay here. You can walk into the central area of Jaipur very easily and there's good restaurants handy. The breakfast was good, it had the widest selection of foods we encountered over 10 nights and four hotels in India....

When driving up to The Raj Palace it felt like living old colonial experience and leaving behind bustling times and misery. The grandeur of entrance doors were opened by a colorful Sikh,
I was captured by the quiet and peace when stepping inside.
The Raj Palace is Jaipur's oldest and first Palace is nearly 300 years old, it is owned by Princess Jayendra Kumari who had turned the nobel Palace into a luxury Hotel during the nineties. Staying here makes all the difference and is wonderful experience of long forgotten times. My room had beautiful bathroom and was facing the inside garden opposite the gorgeous arches of the splendid pool. Breakfast could have been more opulent and have more varities of bread and fresh marmelade, but the friendly service made it up.
Upon departure I was impressed when calling the porter who came in no time and lifted up all pillows and looked in all drawers prior of carrying down the luggage.
The Hotel made history all over India by having the first female and youngest 5 Star Hotel Manager of India. Wished I had the opportunity to see the gold leafed painted walls of the Museums Suite and the opulent Suites with own pavillion, but had only little time.
But it would be a good point and lovely experience for the Hotel Guests to have the privilegue of a Hotel Tour at certain days - seeing all this hidden beauty which for sure would be a unique experience and add a personal flavor which will make the stay most memorable.
