“Great Choice”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I found this hotel by chance and was extremely lucky to do so. The staff was great and the rooms were spotless. The hotel manager Mr. Rakesh was extremely hospitable, and responsive to my every need. He will welcome you as if you were a family member.
If you're looking for an affordable place to stay whose rooms are comparable to some of the more expensive hotel, pick this one. It's also relatively close to the major sites in the pink ciy, a 30 rupee tuk tuk ride away.

Room Tip: If you're traveling during the summer months, spend the extra money and get yourself one of thei...

Luck by chance! That’s very interesting. Thank you so much for finding out time for sending us this review. It feels good to know that our rooms are adjudged as affordable (pricing) while the space and decor (aesthetics) is at par with some of the more expensive rooms that a globe trotter like you must have obviously stayed in. Thank you so much for saying so on a forum like this one. Cheers and God bless!

I stayed in this hotel for a day in a A/C dormitory. The hotel has free wi-fi and near to top restaurants of jaipur.

LMB Hotel, Rawat kachori, Kanji sweets, Nataraj Restaurant, OM Tower are just walkable if you like walking.

I was new to Jaipur and the Owner of the hotel helped me to get from the bus and reach very quickly, thanks Sir.

For the money it is great value. Stay here and eat Dhal Bhati and Choorma at famous hotels of Jaipur.

WoW! This is what a budget hotel is there for. So that you have a clean and comfortable resting nest after a serious round of binging on the street and exposing your tongue to some of the rare Indian spices that rajasthan so proudly boasts of. Thank you so much for mentioning some of the very best that Jaipur has to offer in terms of food and also for appreciating our rooms, view, cleanliness and location. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again. Cheers.

I came here in July 2013. I loved this hostel since the beginning. It let me know a lot of others solo travellers, the staff was welcoming and pleased to help me sorting out what to do in Jaipur. Fresh air in the rooms, free wifi, amazing rooftop. What else?

I had a lovely experience in this boutique hotel. Very clean, staf real friendly, beautiful place... It is in a good localization, outside the polution of the city centre, but just 10 minutes to there by tuc tuc (we have a lot in front of the door everytime). The manager Raqish was so helpful with me... He resolved everything that I asked. I had some problems with my bank card and he land me his own mobile phone to I call to the bank and also he went to a cashmachine with me, doing everything until I resolve my problem. I will never forget his help. If you need a tuc tuc ask for Kham, a very sensitive and honest man. I don´t have anything to complain... I just want come back to here in a next time :)

I was looking for a hotel that will see the World Cup. So I found this hotel.
Also, I was glad also free Wi-Fi. (Other hotels need to pay.)

The room is clean, the staff was also friendly. You can become friends with tuk-tuk driver.
