I went to Jaipur in November 2008 with family. Local friends had suggested this hotel, and we'd booked four rooms. They're very flexible - when we arrived, they let us see all the rooms and choose. Being an old residential property converted to a hotel, each room is different, giving the hotel significant charm.
Our experience was the same as that of most other reviewers - clean rooms, quiet place, and terriffic value. The staff is non-intrusive bur efficient, and the place is immaculate. The rooms are small but comfortable, and we didn't spend much time in them anyway. The place has been very sensibly renovated. It still retains charm and character, but is thoroughly modern where it's needed -- the bathrooms, LCD TV, air conditioning, etc.
There's no pool, or any other entertainment. However, Jaipur has so much to do, by way of sight seeing and shopping, that we didn't really miss it. In fact, we didn't even get time to enjoy the tempting sit out on the first floor, though we wanted to. Jaipur's like that...
Food was a good experience, too. There's a lawn out front where you can serve your breakfast and sit at the tables. Lunch and dinner are inside the restaurant. The menu is somewhat limited, but there are new items each day, so it's pretty interesting for a few days' stay. The food is vegetarian only. Suited us, but for those it doesn't, Jaipur has dozens of good eateries.
The parking area is perhaps inadequate - our cars were usually out on the street, because we usually came back late. But these are minor quibbles. On the whole, this hotel is clean, comfortable, and terriffic value.
