As read on the reviews earlier - no mistake choosing this one. Amazing hotel with excellent staff and tastier food. Stayed here on 7th Dec for 1 night as couple.
They provide free pickup from the railway station in TUK TUK (auto rikshaw) - the driver - Shabbir called me 1 day early asking for confirmation. i was reaching to jaipur by 5 am, got shabbir's call on 4.40 asking on status update when i was about to reach - very particular driver about time, I liked the punctual attitude & customer service.
Its a bunglow converted in hotel, I choose the standard room with no garden view and situated at ground floor, but other rooms are good too on higher floors, may be more quit than what i choose. If lucky you can see the peacock at hotel garden i was not that lucky, but surely you can have a look of green vintage car.
Food quality --> is best , very reasonable and more tasty than any other hotel i experienced in my trip of Rajasthan (abu,jodhpur,udaipur), Garden resto is very cool & the kitchen is cleaned too.Dont Miss masala Tea & Paneer paratha :-)
Room Service --> Nice service, clean sheets, clean toilets.
Customer service --> Amazing - Free internet service is best deal... the manager OM SHARMA is very polite and helpful person, also you may find the owner of the villa at reception or at internet cafe.
Travelling around--> You have TUK TUK available outside the hotel, SHABBIR the tuk tuk driver will help you finding places and roaming around here n there. He carries a slam book where we can write feedback about his service - very punctual and polite.
Site Seeing --> Shabbir will help with siteseeing as well however you may skip few places in tuk tuk, like nahargarh fort, (extra charges) - I choose tuk tuk but then was not being told that will be missing few places - infact i told to cover all the places but then felt little disappointed missing out on few of them.
My strong suggestion for the siteseeing would be taking RTDC BUS For JAIPUR DARSHAN --- this will cover many places in just 300 per person.
Cost of living is low in japur so travelling from point to point with TUK TUK May take 40-50 Rs max for covering places to places.
HAWA MAHAL,JANTAR MANTAR, CITY PALACE is walking distance from each other so take tuk tuk on a'la'carte basis till City palace & then walk around (may cost 40-50)
SHOPPING ---> DO ALL YOUR SHOPPING in JAIPUR for handicarf like RAJAI (blanket), SMALL PUPPETS, souvenir gifts -- you'll get it in mini bazar outside the city palace, near jal mahal, and on the amber palace/fort area. (DO NOT WAIT FOR anything as you'll get cheap n best pieces there in these markets) - i was waiting for shabbir to take me to more cheaper lane/shop which is indeed a costly one so better do the shopping from these mini bazars... do bargain at around 75% of the price quoted (if said 200 ask to give around 130 or 100)
DO NOT MISS the -- "ISAR-LAT" near city palace - its a WATCH TOWER , build like Kootob minar, amazing views of jaipur from this -- Mr. Chowhan was the security person who helped us being our guide and photographer there (expecting very less amount in returns whatever suits you) -- the TICKET Rates are 10Rs per person and for the guide and information shared we gave him 30 Rs more :) He was happy with it saying being GUIDE my motive is to let you know the best things, not to take extra money from your pocket whatever you give i'm happy with it !!
NOTE -- IF you travelling back with Flight, you might be informed and forced to take the CAB/CAR to the airport drop - but better take the TUK TUK, it'll take 350 Rs instead of 500.
JAIPUR AIRPORT is a basic ground floor airport so even if you go by cycle-rikshaw, Walk, Car, TukTuk, or any other vehicle - you gonna land at the entrance itself.
So Your saving of 150Bucks can give you Amazing breakfast in the same hotel on your choice.
you can roam around the hotel street and find other tuk tuk driver rates as well to drop you at airport.
(Dont forget to click on Helpful vote )"YES/NO"
SAD Thing--- I Missplaced my DEV-ANAND CAP in JAIPUR SOMEWHERE not sure in hotel or tuktuk or somewhere ---- Which was so close to my heart, if HOTEL or SHABBIR finds it ...please inform me & call me -I will be very glad to have it back by postage or courier service... will pay the amount directly to you or hotel or courier service.
