An old Palace, lots of old furniture, rather tired. We stayed in one of the standard rooms which was out in the garden, rather like a terraced cottage set up where the doors lead onto the garden.  Clean, quiet, rather shabby but acceptable. The bathroom was fine, plenty of hot water, everything supplied apart from hair conditioner. Bodyshop across the...

Stayed here in November for 3 nights. Convenient location for what we wanted to do, and loved the atmosphere. Great pool and gardens. Spacious rooms, but would have liked a bath as well as the shower. Acoustics not good, but understandable, given the age of the hotel. Unfortunately our room was close to the aviary and whoever should have covered...

Its was a Majahra Palace, now a heritage hotel. Vehicles park at the fountain and you walk the 'Red carpet' to reception, I was in room 47, it was a nice large room at the end of a row - beds hard as was the norm in India, with TV, furniture is rustic in keeping with a bygone era. Nice...

Though the grounds were beautiful, this hotel left something to be desired. As you drive up to the hotel, you feel as though you are embarking into a beautiful, heritage hotel, but the service and amenities are not up to par. We had to change rooms upon arrival because the room we were given had no hot water.The included buffet...

The place is noisy, freezing and the service is terrible. Breakfast of boiled vegetables, nescafe and mashed potatoes is just a joke. Overpriced. The staffs English is terrible or they pretend not to understand. Internet does not work. Rooms are cold, dark and offer little comforts. communal areas have no heating in the freezing winter months. Do not come here.

When you drive up to the property, you think you've in for a real treat. The grounds are lovely, but the history and age of the property doesn't equal a nice comfy stay. Our "king size" bed was two twins pushed together. The beds were really hard. When you walked into the room, you could smell the little white cubes...

We just loved this place when we visited it in October. The rooms where in their main building and was reached via this quaint set of stone stairs. The property was quite large with peacocks roaming the grounds. The staff was very courteous, and service very good. Don't forget to have dinner on the lawn, with Rajasthani dancers and puppeteers...

We had a deluxe room in this beautifully renovated palace. It was huge and even featured a blue Bohemia glass crystal chandelier. The ambiance was over the top. You could order snacks and drinks at an outdoor sitting area and it was splendid. There is an inviting pool out back and an open air restaurant with entertainment on the front...

Overall we enjoyed our stay here, we were in jaipur for Christmas day and it was nice to break the western type hotels we'd been staying in to enjoy are more unique experience. Cocktails in the lounge bar were fabulous and a nice break from Kingfisher beer. We enjoyed a fabulous Rajasthani Thali dinner in the garden beautifully lit with...

This former country residence was built in 1928 and opened as a heritage hotel in 1978. The property is oozing with atmosphere and the rooms feature high ceilings, four-poster beds, fresco-painted walls and ceilings, and Raj-era chandeliers. Sleeping here is like spending the night in a museum. Some may find the place a bit too rustic, but others will be...

The Palace has all the modern amenities and a place where one can enjoy traditional Rajput Hospitality. Decorated with Rajput Flourishing, Rajasthani Furnishing and Traditional Jaipur painted wall decor in a typically bold colour palette; Narain Niwas was built in the 1928 by General Amar Singh, Thakur of Kanota, and Commander of the Jaipur State Force. ... more   less
