The Jaipur House
Ranked #19 of 41 Hotels in Mount Abu
Reviewed October 2, 2013

I landed up in the hotel fairly late in the evening while it was raining and not much could be seen around. Upon check-in, I got to know that the room allotted was in the Annexe Block and not the main block - resulting in a bit of disappointment. However post a reasonable meal at the restaurant and a quick trip to the famous Dilwara Temples, I retired for the night. The rooms in the annexe block are basic. No tea maker in the room.
Up early the next morning, I took an umbrella and headed towards the main block - the heritage building, which seemed more promising with the daylight. Had a quick look at the property, which was decently built - not too elaborate but with typical bells and whistles which you expect in a heritage structure in Rajasthan.
The terrace had really spell binding 360 degree views. Hwoever there was more in store for me....
On reaching the verandah of the heritage building, I stood almost on the edge of the Nakki Lake with heavy mist and fog just about beginning to disappear. And lo, what a sight it unravelled - truly majestic appearance of the Mount with the Nakki lake in the foreground - spellbinding! The sight kept me rivetted for several minutes. What a relaxing sight of the lake, the hills and the spread of Mount abu! The windows of the restaurant, too, provided great visuals. Next time, I would want to be in the heritage building!

Room Tip: Must go ONLY for the rooms in the heritage building - the main block. Try the ones towards the lake.

Spectacular venue. A hotel full of history and former glory but unfortunately suffering from chronic underinvestment.

The building is damp throughout. We started off in a room with black mold covering the walls, a damp mattress and bedding. We complained and were upgraded to another room. This room was better but it was dirty (stains on the towels, dead insects and dust). The bed was also damp although not as damp as the room we started in. Finally we were upgraded again to a suite upstairs but this had the same damp problem.

They need to invest more money in the upkeep and maintenance of this hotel before it's former glory fades completely.

Jaipur House is a must visit for its location! The hotel is well placed on a hill. The terrace gives you a breath-taking view of Nakki lake. We stayed at a Deluxe room, which was comfortable & spacious enough for two, though it needed a little maintenance. The staff was extremely helpful & pleasant. The food was surprisingly mild as opposed to the expected spicy rajasthani cuisine. It’s a great place for stay with family & friends.

Room taken was standard which needs drastic improvement in terms of neatness etc. Space too less. Was smelling. Price is too much for this standard. Avoid standard room in this hotel for sure. Service, food above expectations. The service personnel are extremely good. Food quality very good. Options can be increased if possible.
