We arrived in Jaiphur by car from Vrindavan. That was a very enjoyable drive! Scenery complete with herds of camels, & country life. Upon arrival here ,we were greeted warmly & our bags were taken in. The staff is most accommodating. The rooms were very clean & pleasant, tastefully decorated. There were many little alcoves throughout the hotel to use wi fi. There is a "sitting room" on the 1st floor, as well as a "library" ( we didn't see it, but I'm sure it was a nice as the rest of the surroundings!) The pool looked inviting, altho, we didn't take the time to use it!
On the patio, dinner is served. This is a very tranquil, & safe place located in the middle of the city & close to everything. We would definitely stay here again.

This is an old family house, set in pretty gardens and has been lovingly restored and renovated, but still has modern conveniences. Although located on a quiet street, it is behind the chaotic and bustling (that is putting it mildly) bus station.
Warm greeting at reception and shown up to our room – 208. This was a large, beautiful room which appeared newly renovated and decorated. The style was ‘colonial’, with a lovely old writing desk and sideboard, two king sized beds, each with a beautifully embroidered cover. The bathroom was modern with two sinks and a large walk in shower. Good quality toiletries are available, but again ‘white’ towels that were grey. The air-con was good and there were two ceiling fans. Sadly, no safety deposit in the room. The hotel said that they would try to get one, but this proved impossible. However, we believe this was because of the recent renovations and something that will be rectified – a little investigation with other guests found that they did indeed have safety deposit boxes in their rooms. Also, no hairdryer in this room, but again this might be rectified in the future.
Although the wardrobe was stylish it was very small and only contained 2 coat hangers. More were requested (we were staying 4 nights), but only 2 turned up. Oh well – we managed! Wifi was free, but never worked in our room unfortunately, and was even hit and miss near the router, located near reception.
In the room there were tea & coffee making facilities, a fridge and 2 bottles of water left for us each day.
To our delight, the room was very clean with no dust – hurrah!
We took dinner here in the evening, a delicious buffet served in the courtyard. There was plenty of choice for vegetarians plus a meat dish and pleasant service.
As the buffet dinner was so good, we were rather disappointed in the breakfast, which we can only call adequate. A couple of juices, a very small amount of fresh fruit, awful coffee (the dreaded powdered Nescafé), toast & jam, scrambled or boiled eggs (both pre-cooked) & a couple of Indian warm dishes – Idly etc.
The courtyard pool was pleasant, particularly after a day of sightseeing.
Despite a couple of hiccups, this is a lovely, tranquil hotel and the close proximity to the bus station shouldn’t put you off. However, we would recommend getting either a taxi or tuktuk if you go out in the evening.
This was a favourite hotel from our trip to India, and highly recommended.

Room Tip: We believe that the non-ground floor rooms are lighter and quieter.

I planned the trip late (i.e. 3 weeks ahead). Because of car problems, my friend and I arrived just before midnight. Not only was the desk attendant waiting for us, but he had the room open, with the AC turned on!

But when we entered the room, life got unexpectedly better. I had requested a twin room with 2 beds... we were given 2 adjoining rooms, each with its own bath, but charged only for the twin room!!!! The rooms were immaculate with comfortable beds (not the "boards" of most Indian beds). Everything was clean and fresh.

The pool is small but lovely. Breakfast buffet was very good (and even when we arrived late, the staff accommodated us with more scrambled eggs, fruit,etc), and the dinner offerings were not only the buffet, but we were able to order off the lunch menu.

On our last evening, we met the daughter of the owner, and she helped us locate an ayurvedic medicine shop.

Overall, my experience with Dera Rawatsar was outstanding. I will return next time I go to Jaipur.

I came with my family for my annual vacation and I am glad I chose this property, I was pampered, the owners who made us feel like we were a part of their family. The hotel staff was very courteous, they made an extra effort to find out our likes and dislikes to make our trip a comfortable and a memorable one. I loved their pan cakes which was a pleasant surprise, I did not find Pan cakes on the menu of any of the hotels at which I stayed during my trip. I would recommend anyone visiting Jaipur to stay at this property

This beautiful small family run hotel is set in a quiet, leafy back street of Jaipur away from the noise and bustle. Everything is immaculate and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The first impression is of greenery and flowers set around a neat cream coloured building. We had a large first floor room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard where buffet dinners were served by lamp light. The room was furnished with antiques and full of character. The huge bathroom was a little antique too, but everything worked as it should! As a special bonus, we had peacocks roosting in the trees outside our window! We would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone.

My second stay here and it definitely came up to the mark once more - the staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly in a very pleasant way - and the fact that the owners are on site is a big plus point. The hotel is small yet has good facilities, is well maintained and they deserve their success.
The pool, common parts and rooms are spotlessly clean - and very well equipped with refrigerators, tea & coffee trays etc, wifi. The beds are comfortable, the rooms prettily furnished and there is plenty of hot water available in the showers. The breakfast is generous and varied, and meals in the courtyard are pleasing and relaxed. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 2 nights in March. Spacious and comfortable room and very helpful and attentive staff. The dining areas (both inside and out) provided a good atmosphere and the food was great. Didn't get a chance to sample the swimming pool, but it looked very inviting. The location was good for visiting the main sites in Jaipur. Would warmly recommend Dera Rawatsar.
