The Umaid Mahal exceeded our expectations for the comfort of the spacious room, the beautiful décor throughout, the friendly and helpful staff and the excellent food.

We stayed here for 2 days/3nights at Rs. 3000/day. We had a 1 year baby with us. Our stay was pleasant. Whatever we needed the staff were happy to help. The room was clean and yes, the bathroom is really best. At least, for my family dry clean bathrooms are high priority when traveling. Breakfast buffet is okay - not exceptional. Not lot of varieties but enough for you to pick from. We had dinner only once in the restaurant and it was not to our taste. All the curries very sweetish and white. Probably they were changed to suit the needs of foreigners. Overall, I'd always recommend this place to anyone.

This very pretty hotel is off the main drag, so the rooms are quiet. Which is a big selling point for centrally located, mid-budget hotels in Jaipur. Rooms are clean and have a good supply of hot water with efficient shower units. Beds are medium hard [which would be rock hard anywhere else, but Indian beds are the worst I've ever encountered].

The breakfast on the terrace is functional [coffee, toast, fruit, eggs] but there isn't a view from the terrace, due to the high terrrace walls. They also miss a trick by not using some of the terrace for sunbeds or casual seating in the afternoon. If you return to the hotel in the day the only outside option is sitting at the dining tables.

Our stay at the Umaid Mahal in Jaipur was excellent and we apreciated the owner and staff's attention during our 4 days stay.
The rooms are spacious, clean and the shower is outstanding!
It is a modern hotel in a heritage setting.

This hotel looks stunning from the outside. It has a beautiful entrance with a large gold door surrounded by intricate decoration. Inside, our room was spacious are nicely decorated too. Breakfast was alright - up on the roof terrace. Fresh omlettes and some cereals, fruit.

On the whole, I felt the service was pretty impersonal, which was a shame. Location was OK - close to a cluster of other hotels. You'll pay about 50 Rupees to get to the Pink City.

I stayed at Umaid Mahal for 5 days along with my family in Jan 2009. We took two Royal Delux rooms (both the rooms were not identical, since one room had a bigger bathroom than the other one). However, the rooms are very good, very clean and well maintained. The interiors of the hotel have a royal look. Having breakfast on the terrace of the mahal was a nice experience, and we loved it. The basement has a well decorated restaurant along with the swimming pool. The staff at the mahal was very helpful, and friendly (with a smile on their faces always). Since this hotel is a little away from the city centre, it is calm and free from the usual noise of the city.
