I was really excited when I booked this hotel. So it doesn't have an online booking form, but that really doesn't matter when you arrive. On the wall are all of Admiral Singh's awards/plaques - it's truly amazing. The man himself is gentle, caring, and very friendly.
The staff really do look after you - they waited for my booked tour driver and rickshaw drivers to arrive, and even helped advise the drivers on the route I'd selected for Jaipur. The food, too (as a vegetarian), was wonderful - there was plenty to eat of a variety of foods, from paneer to lentils.
All in all, a great experience and a great place to stay. Definitely don't listen to auto drivers if they say there's somewhere better!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Devi Niketan is a family owned and operated Heritage Hotel in central Jaipur which was inaugurated on April 2008. It stands on a big plot with large, lush green lawns in front and rear of the building, a large parking area and a swimming pool. A double storied heritage house, it is part of the 140 acre estate of the former ruling family of Chomu. Adjacent to Devi Niketan is "Govind Niwas", the residence of Admiral Madhvendra Singh and his wife Kumu, who own and run "Devi Niketan". Govind Niwas too stands on a big plot with plenty of greenery. Taken together the two properties stand on a two acre estate which gives a feeling of space and tranquility - even though it is surrounded by a bustling city. It is in a "Happening" neighbourhood with plenty of eating places, Ayurvedic massage parlours, shopping malls with food courts and movie theaters, banks & ATMs, gyms - all within one kilometer.While we do not have an a la Carte Restaurant, a Buffet Breakfast is available and Dinner is served if ordered. ... more less
