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.
