Umaid Bhawan Heritage House Hotel
Ranked #17 of 412 Hotels in Jaipur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 9, 2013

There's something about staying in a hotel that feels like the country you're visiting. Umaid Bhawan gave us a taste and feel of India with the walls adorned with traditional paintings to our 4-poster king size bed and marble floors all enclosed within an old building that had been tastefully decorated.

The roof top restaurant was the highlight. Live traditional music accompanied by dancers was a pleasant backdrop whilst we ate our perfectly cooked Indian dishes. Buffet breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold options.

Computers with internet access available in the lobby. Front of house staff average but they did put us in touch with a driver that turned out to be one of the best drivers we had whilst in India. Great spacious van with crispy cold A/C, good English and great knowledge of the area!

This is an amazing place to stay. If you like modern hotels which you can stay in anywhere in the world you probably won't enjoy this place. It's quirkiness reminds you your India and we found it found it fun. It does have a few faults, but these were to be expected in a place like this. Our room was just above the restaurant and kitchen, but we I'd not mind the banter and the noise of the entertainment, that really is India. Bathrooms really clean and rooms well equipped and maintained. Staff very helpful ad friendly. Restaurant food excellent - highly recommend the lal Maas, a local specialty. Really quaint and pleasant place to stay and good value or money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private porch or balcony

Simple & Amazing, Easy to locate & all the locations are nearby for shopping, entertainment & time to spend. Good to stay as the hotel is a heritage property with cleanliness & good hospitality. Thanks for all the services :):):)

First impressions terrible! front of houses staff unwelcoming- it was the first hotel in india without a welcome- ie marigold necklace and a cold glass of juice! not that it is essential, but it did set the tone- and staff werent friendly at reception at all!
the standard Room was terrible. Linen old and tatty. towels tatty and a bit grey. bathroom- very small. whilst showering- i noticed as i touched the taps- felt a buzz- everytime. as in electricity coming through the taps... very scary! Room also very noisy. staff and guests walking past door and very
plugs and electrics look very dodgy and unsafe. wires a bit exposed in some ares and some plugs didnt work well at all.
Dogs across the road- bark for hours on end. very very frustrating.
Restaurant on rooftop good. Good dinners up there and very reasonable price. staff very friendly. breakfast- not too bad- could have more selection but can definitely find something to eat. bad fruit juice and poor fruit selection, but there are other options.
it could be a better experience- maybe my room was just terrible! its not expensive though, so i guess thats what u get for that money! service from non front of house staff was very friendly. just dont ask reception for any help or advice.

Room Tip: only saw rooms on 3rd floor (401/402) and 401 is terrible. 402 slightly better but also very very no...

Our stay at umaid bhawan was really pleasant escape from the bustle of Jaipur. The interior is rustically decorated, and although not really old and genuine it still has its climate and is extraordinary clean. There is nice pool, however it was too cold in December to make a use of it. The rooftop restaurant is a huge advantage of this place, with great food, atmosphere and live performance.. Not to mention the breakfast buffet which was absolutely the best during our stay in India.. The hotel is located outside the old city but the stuff can arrange a car for sightseeing and also a free pick up from the train station..

The Umaid Bhawan is extremely well decorated both inside and out and the bedrooms are well furnished. Laksimar appears by magic whenever you need anything done. The roof top restaurant is enchanting and the dancers are the best I saw in India and I saw several at 5 star hotels. The food is excellent. Service is great and nothing is too much trouble. Dawn from Malua Bay.

Room Tip: I stayed at different times in different rooms and all were good.

We really loved our stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is good. While the hotel is relatively new, the decor feels like centuries old India. Our room and bed were comfortable. Free wifi was available in our room (a rarity in India, in our experience). We booked a car and driver for our stay. The cost was very reasonable and the drivers were helpful in planning the visit. Jaipur is a crowded, frantic city. Our drivers were able to navigate that well. It was a treat to return home to this oasis every evening and have dinner in the rooftop restaurant. Each night we were treated to good food and service, as well as enjoyable entertainment provided by traditional dancers and musicians. We were there 4 nights and never felt the need to go elsewhere for dinner and entertainment. We thought the cost was really a bargain. Do stay here and hire a car and driver through them.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor next to the rooftop restaurant. I had concerns about noise level, especiall...
