Sajjan Niwas
Ranked #111 of 393 Hotels in Jaipur
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We had mixed feelings about sajjan niwas. As I will explain below.

It feels like quite a new hotel and is a lovely haveli style building. Inside the hotel is lovely as well, with nice sofa areas on each floor. The restaurant is also nice on the top floor.

The room was really nice. Quite large, cable tv, good AC, nice furnishings. Also all rooms seem to have balconies which is nice. Bathroom was also good.

Location is a bit out of Jaipur centre, but in an area with loads of hotels. But to the edge of this area, so not any restaurants close walking distance. As we were there with a driver wasn't a problem but if without transport more difficult.

Hotel also has a pool, which is a good size and nice, but I would suggest that they follow the idea of the almost identical neighboring hotel and put a net over it as this would stop leaves and birds etc.

Staff in general were friendly enough and reception was helpful.

HOWEVER, our big problem came when we ate at the restaurant. My partner has a nut allergy and we explained this to the waiter (as every night in India) at great length that this could mean hospitalization and difficulty if nuts were in the food and he actually seemed to understand and told us what we could have without nuts. I don't know if this message was just not passed on to the kitchen or if it was forgotten/ignored, but my partner's curry arrived with whopping huge cashew nuts in. Upon pointing this out to the waiter he insisted they were not nuts, so I tasted (I'm not allergic) and confirmed, yes they are nuts, by he still insisted no nuts but we sent the dish back. It only happened twice in 6 weeks in India that nuts were produced in food after long explanations of allergy, so actually quite unusual that a hotel/restaurant couldn't get it right.
I should add that my food was actually quite nice.

The nut issue and denial of it afterwards is the reason for the poor overall rating. However otherwise a nice hotel.

Travelled June 2013, as a couple, AC room, booked as part of Rajasthan tour.

Lovely and cute heritage hotel. Great rooms with ac and usually windows . Enjoyed the rooftop restaurant, the unique interior decorations, and the refreshing pool!
Nice and helpful staff, no worries during our stay here! Particularly lovely to escape here from the June heat.

I stayed for two nights in march and we loved it. The rooms are gorgeous with great attention paid to even the smallest of details. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was quiet, Everybody - from the cleaning staff to the front desk staff - was extremely pleasant and helpful. We slept in one morning and missed breakfast we asked if there was any way to still get breakfast and they happily accommodated us. All these things make it totally worth the money! The hotel is also well centered in the Jaipur city,

On the whole, the hotel contributed a good start to the holiday and we will try it again.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the hotel. The staff were friendly and made you feel very welcome. Our room was very spacious and cleaned to a very high standard. We were on the 2nd floor which had a good view of pool, We chose this hotel having read the reviews on TripAdvisor and it exceeded our expectations. The location was ideal for us as first time visitors as close to the bus/railway station and within walking distance of many places .The staff were very helpful and friendly .The room was quiet, We would not hesitate to stay here again and recommend it to others, Overall a lovely experience which we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. I must give a big thank you to all Sajjan Niwas staff and manager.

One manager is great, the thinner one speaks very poor English, is petulant, rude and totted up our bill adding random charges that we couldn't understand. The pool has a layer of greasy film over it and has 1 uncomfortable sunbed. The wifi barely worked for us at all. There were dirty clothes left from previous guests on our balcony on arrival. No topsheet, only a dirty bedcover.

When I put in a load of laundry they didn't take my word for the 16 items but emptied my dirty knickers out to count on the front desk in front of other guests!!

The only plus point was the slightly fatter manager spoke great English and helped us loads about where to go and how much to pay ect. Really sweet guy.

We were recommended this place by an Indian friend, and even at a huge discount of 'mates rates' we still felt it was overpriced...

Never again.

Room Tip: Check your balcony first!
