“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

As our taxi pulled up to our guesthouse we were greeted by the sight of peacocks wandering through the front lawn and Sanyogita (the owner) came to the front gate to welcome us. Six years earlier, we were the first guests at the Rawla guesthouse. Since then it has expanded to eight rooms and, for us, it was like coming home. Our friends from Canada were with us and we were shown to our lovely rooms with a large balcony for all of us to sit outside in the mornings and evenings.

Since it was a very short visit to Jaipur, we discussed our plans with Sanyogita, and she promptly arranged a car and a driver for us for the next two days. Breakfast is included in the room rate and there is an option to have delicious meals ( vegetarian and non-vegetarian)served in the dining room for a reasonable price. Each evening we asked to have ice with our drinks and we were very pleased that none of us suffered from any ill effects. The two days went by very quickly and it was a great start to our tour of Rajasthan as we headed for the Pushkar Camel Fair.

If you are planning to visit Jaipur check out the Rawla guesthouse and you will not be disappointed.

This Rawla Homestay is the worst experience a guest can have. No one to welcome you, no water to drink till u ask for it. No one to tell attend you till u ask for service more than 2 times.
Extension phone was missing, and no one bother about it, they assumed that guest will call from his mobile phone for everything.
Simple tea took more than 30mins.
No one present to open or at least close the main gate. even no one to get your language. For each and everything Help yourself.
This is completely opp of Homestay concept.
When we were going no one came to say goodbye not even came to main door.. Rooms dont have curtains.. what a nonsense

On a whole, the stay and attitude of the boys and owner was really bad.

NEVER GO TO THIS PLACE

Why this has been blessing in disguise..we had booked Laxmi Palace for the weekend between 18th Oct - 20th Oct ( 2 rooms) , however due to unavailability of rooms we were transferred to Rawla Rawatstar (its subsidiary). This was a purely our good fortune .. as I loved everything about the place . The place had everything you would want from a home stay in Jaipur.

Best thing about Rawla - Excellent & spacious rooms, beautiful golden lighting.. ethnic rajasthani touch to everything, huge personal balcony, awesome view of lawn and greenery from balcony , excellent hospitality .. awesome and friendly staff. Kitchen and fridge at your service.We being two families with small children required kitchen for boiling of water and milk.. which was no problem at all as a small service kitchen is available in the first floor.After spending days out in sightseeing .. sitting on the balcony with the nice breeze was just great. Bathrooms were spotless , clean and equally good. Hotel is located at very posh and quiet colony and near by property are also owned by the same group which looked equally good.You just might also see peacocks flying and dancing about in balcony or hotel roof in morning.

Things which can be improved - Although power cuts were rare, however on the day of checkout we were left with no electricity with no power backup solution. But I guess . power usually doesnt go .. or goes for small duration.

Overall it was excellent , comfortable and home like stay which gave me a reason to comeback to Rawla's whenever I am in Jaipur.

Do eat Kachouri and lassi at Rawat restaurant which is near to the hotel.

Room Tip: Go for first floor room with huge balcony .. overseeing garden.

I zeroed in on Rawla going through reviews on Tripadvisor. I was a bit apprehensive as I had my parents along and they had never stayed at homestays before. But Rawla was great and they loved it. The property is set in a very busy area but very very peaceful. If you get up early, you will see peacocks roaming around the court yard. The next property houses horse stables and in the mornings, they are led out for their daily exercise. Great fun watching them.

We had booked 2 deluxe and 1 standard rooms, but the standard was upgraded to super deluxe rooms. So, no complaints :) The rooms were great. A pet peeve that I have with rooms are that they scrounge on loo space. But here I faced no issues. The rooms are equipped with TV and AC. The bathroom had a hair dryer.

One more commendable aspect was the help. Right from the meals cooked to getting us bournvita and tea at 5 AM in the morning, Dinesh and his team were great.

I would gladly stay at Rawla again and recommend it to my friends as well.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good!

We were 7 members of my family and we had a wonderful stay at Rawla Rawatstar house . The house is located in a very decent and clean area although it is in the city center.
Behind the house and on the rooftop you`re able to observe peacocks every morning dancing. What an amazing sight! And its all for free :-)
The rooms are very clean and beautiful, with spacious attached bathrooms.The staff is very friendly and helpful .The host is a very friendly, helpful and lovely lady, always able to give some good advice. She made our stay unforgettable!
Thank you very much!!!

I visited this property for the second time after one year, this time with a friend. Everything is as perfect as you could wish, Sanyogita is the perfect host. Close to everything, quite street, peacocks calling in the garden and sometimes sneaking into the breakfast room. Cosy and comfortable and as friendly as a family home could be.
Great for women travelers.

Rawla is a lovely homestay which, though centrally located, offers very quiet, modern and comfortable rooms. the property includes a carefully looked after garden regularly visited by a group of beautiful peacocks which you can easily observe from your breakfast table:-)
Sanyogita obviously runs her B&B with passion, gives you a very warm welcome and during your stay is always there for you with a helping hand.
Thank you, Sanyogita, I really did enjoy my time at Rawla, wish you all the best and hope to see you again one day!
