Had stayed on 12 & 13 night. The property is well maintained, quite neat & clean, with the bonus of being centrally located. Food quality is good. But having said that the services is quite insipid & indifferent. The Manager/ Reception guy ( Subash) in the morning has no idea about Jaipur & dials up Arya Niwas everytime for info. Some of the service gaffe(s) faced were :-
# Guard telling to have a bath so that he can shut the boiler down (around 11am)
# Waiter getting the night tea (on 13th) insisting on payment for Rs.40/- for two cups. When we told him that it was to be put with room bill, he tells us that rest. bills were to be settled seperately. Upon telling him that on earlier orders from rest. nobody had told us this, he releuctantly withdrew. Next day in bill, the charge for tea was Rs. 30/-. The waiter was trying to pull a fast one, i guess!
# Thought we reached the buffet at 9am...first the juice got finished, then aloo paranthas & then tea. We cancelled the buffet for next day.
The property is execllent value for money but needs to be managed little better. Imangine, Subash admitting that service in Arya Niwas is better!
Would recommend for a stay if service improves for non $ tippers.
