Jaipur was nearing the end of our visit to India so we had a fair idea of what to expect ... and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been decorated beautifully and the room we had was immaculate and roomy. The bathroom was spacious with a fabulous (enclosed) shower with hot water and great pressure - easily up to the standard of Western 5 star hotels! Wifi was available and reliable and the flat screen TV in the room was massive - although we didn't spend much time in there at all. The restaurant prices seemed relatively expensive so our driver took us elsewhere for dinner(s) but breakfast had a lovely selection and great masala omelettes. We had some laundry done and although it was 'cheap' by western standards they charged twice as much as some of the other places we stayed.
On presentation and comfort I could have easily rated them 5 stars, but there were a couple of small factors that let them down. Surprisingly, although we stayed for a few nights they only gave a small bottle of complementary water on the first night (other hotels replaced the water daily) ... and when we ran out of toilet paper it took 3 requests before we were given another packet.
I would stay there again though, if I was ever in Jaipur as it was clean and I can't recommend the bathroom enough!
