We stayed 2 nights here on our trip around India, and once again were bowled over by the lovely staff.
We arranged a pick up from the station and were glad that we had. We booked an executive suite and were a bit pd off when we checked in (rather late - a night porter type chap let us in) to find that there were two single beds (we are a married couple), and absolutely no view whatsoever. Having seen the other rooms on the website we really did get a CRUMMY room, and it was more expensive! So that was not good. I was going to moan and ask to be moved, but we were there too late really to do so, so we stayed put for the 2 nights and scraped the beds together. So my advice would be, be very careful when you book! If I was going to rate the room it would get a 2. Also the 'fully stocked mini bar' had a bottle of water in it, also not great.
However, moving on to the good bits, the pool was lovely and beautifully kept, the restaurant was nice and the staff delightful, it was great sitting outside on the swing chair thing in the evening with a nice drink watching the bats swooping down to have a drink in the pool. I should mention as well that there was no evening entertainment, the website had said that there could be. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and Mrs Singh booked us a great driver, who drove us everywhere in Jaipur for 2 days, we saw everything and then some! The best bits for me were the monkey temple, where we arrived at dawn, that was magical, and the elephant ride up to Amber (I know both of those were not actually in Jaipur but they were my favourite trips). We loved Jaipur itself, it looked like something out of a disney film!
So overall I have given the hotel a 4, because the staff were very nice, and it was a very good value stay, and I'm sure if I had moaned I could have moved rooms to one of the nicer ones.
