“Great Stay for Family”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Stay in Tara Niwas very joyful and confortable. We liked the food very much as it was made to order and specially customized for my 3 yr old son . The ambience overall is really great to relax.. with soothing music and nice garden for kids to enjoy! Travel to other parts of the city is also enjoyable.

I have stayed at all group hotels - arya niwas, jai niwas and tara niwas. Tara niwas is best because of its better location and presence of manager Ms. Kirti Bansal who personally interacts with guests to find out their requirements and with the reception to ensure they get the right room. She also presented me with a very attractive long stay option.
Arya niwas, on the other hand, is too busy with renovation ongoing and many different rooms, no continuity in staff.
The dominant feeling at Tara niwas is one of decency and sobreity - the staff are very well behaved and courteous , at same time maintaining discreet distance. This applies to housekeeping (very prompt and proactive), restaurant (always smiling) and reception and security (helpful).
The food is best that I have eaten outside my home - pure vegetarian with eggs, sweet lemon pickle is very tasty.
Limited parking is available inside with 24 hours security.
Tara niwas is the best bargain hotel in Jaipur, the current trip advisor winner is not even half as good as them.

Greetings from all of us here at Tara Niwas, Jaipur.

Thank you so much for taking out the time to write a review, and also for the more than kind words.
I will definately pass on your comments to Kirti, my wife who takes care of Tara Niwas.
Considering the fact that I am the one responsible for Arya Niwas, I should take some tips from her now!
You are right about the lemon pickle, I love it too!

Once again, thank you for the comments, and hope to see you soon back in our lovely city of Jaipur.

Room was simple, but super clean, good hot shower, nice bathroom and food was great. Wished if the place was a bit closer to center of the city, but everything else was perfect.
Front desk people were polite and pleasant. If I come back to Jaipur, I will stay here. And I recommend this place for everyone. In fact, I already recommend to someone went to Jaipur.
Great place to stay.

Tara Niwas is an experience! Not the fancy shancy luxury kind but a nice warm memorable experience.

It has a distinct home cum hostel vibe with rooms that are adequately furnished and yet not your "typical" standard medium budget hotel decor!

On my way to the hotel from the airport the cabbie described the place as "the kind of hotel firangis come to when they recall their past lives in India" .. I must say he also tried to warn me that any hotel that has a "niwas" or a "bhawan" in the name is most likely a large home turned into hotel and i was better off paying the rate i was in a more standardized hotel!

He couldnt be more wrong for me in particular. I like hotels to have their own character (as opposed to standard white walls, white bedsheets and marble flooring) and Tara Niwas offered me that flavour i was looking for!

The room service is limited (only tea coffee and snacks at best). There is a dining room where hot and fresh meals are served. The food is surprisingly and exceptionally good. Simple but delicious. And after a series of meals comprising of fried pyaz kachories, loaded daal baatis in Jaipur am sure you will crave for and enjoy this kind of simple roti sabzi food.

The cookies (made in the Arya Niwas Bakery i believe) are yum! Must try them if you are there at some point.

The hotel is located close to the station and hence you are not far away from the key eating joints like Rawat Mishtaan Bhandar and Santosh Bhojnalay. Some great shopping options like suvasa and Dori are also close by.

All in all its a peaceful, pleasant stay that you are likely to remember and recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the balcony. The open balcony has some sit out options that are lovely!

I loved the driver's comment that this is the place that firangis come to to remember times past! that is a new one!!
Niwas does mean a house and should'nt the place you return to in the evening after hectic shopping/sightseeing or work be a home rather than an institution?
Most drivers work on a commission system with hotels to get new guests, we do not offer any commission as we believe that the benefit should be directly passed on to the guest by keeping low prices rather than keep an inflated room price and then offer commissions/discounts.
For this reason, drivers are a 'bit' wary of getting guests here:)

I travel a lot and am always on the lookout for not so expensive but comfortable and safe places. Being a woman traveler safety is of utmost importance. I have stayed in Tara Niwas a couple of times and every time I get there the place offers me the comfort and love a home would provide . The rooms are super clean and well maintained. The bathroom is very clean and sanitized well. It is in a very safe residential area and easy to locate. The food offered is very simple and not spicy at all. The breakfast menu is limited but very good - everything offered is super fresh and well cooked. The staff is very helpful but not at all interfering and keep to themselves. The food is not overpriced and they offer good portions at very basic charges. They also offer packed lunch if one is to travel the following day. I would highly recommend this place if you would want to experience the old world charm and the comfort is of being at home while being in the city of Jaipur. Would love to visit this place again and again.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny .

I travel across India extensively but Tara Nivas is truly a rare gem in the beautiful city of Jaipur. There is a air of friendliness and comfort all around which makes this a great place. It is centrally located in a very safe, quite residential area with easy acess out. The restaurant has a homely ambience and the food is absolutely awesome. The rooms are tidy and comfortable with clean bathrooms. All in all a great comfortable and value for money place. Two thumbs up!!
