“Review of Jai Vilas, Jaipur”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

I stayed in this sprawling Haweli style Bungalow for a full one month, in five schedules during November-December last year. It was one of the most memorable experiences in my life. It was truly home away from home. I had all the comfort I wanted and gave value for money. The hospitality was just great. The food, room facilities, fast internet access, access to important city landmarks....everything was there. I look forward to my next trip to Jaipur so that I could revive my memories. I recommend it to be the best place for researchers, writers and development professionals who look for peaceful atmosphere, and foreign tourists who want to explore the real hospitality and cousins of Rajasthan.

Room Tip: Very spacious, with TV, internet access, reading table, enough cupboard space, excellent bedding, wi...

Without doubt one of the best home stays we have stayed in, Jai Vilas delivered on every promise. The rooms were warm, cosy and tastefully done; after a day's of sight-seeing and travelling it was good going back to the room to relax amidst the pleasant company of our hosts. On the two occasions we dined with them, we were served amazing, simple yet delicious dishes that were still hot for the stove.
They also provide a pick-up and drop taxi facility form the airport/railway station/etc. Trust them to arrange for a reliable taxi service as the taxi that picked us up ended up being our guide during the trip. Our experience has been better than any hotel stay we have had in the past as hotels, 5-star or not tend to be very lonely. Over here we experienced a wholesome experience interacting with people we wouldn't normally meet. In other words, the feeling was like family. Jai Vilas gave us a reason to visit Jaipur again and again…and again.

I'd highly recommend the Jai Vilas Homestay for anyone seeking a truly unique cultural experience in Jaipur.Our most gracious host, Mr. Jaideep Singh,made our five days visit absolutely fluid,fun and well-informed. He helped organize our itinerary, checked on our taxi, and also assisted us in our computer confirmation for onward travel. Moreover,his chef delighted us no end for three nights' worth of splendid home-style Rajasthani vegetarian dinners--a treat after making the rounds in Jaipur.. We truly experienced the feeling of being welcome, comfortable and secure guests in his family estate. We couldn't have been happier with our time and especially our company at the Jai Vilas Homestay.

I stayed in Jai Vilas, Jaipur for about a week in November 2013. It is a wonderful place for tourists. The owners have maintained this property superbly and offers a great hospitality. The property gives a royal feeling. The rooms are clean, well furnished and have all the necessary modern facilities. Home cooked food on offer here is a big plus point. I will surely come back to Jai Vilas and strongly recommend this place to other visitors.

Of the many places I have stayed in India, this has been my favorite. A former family villa turned glittering yet comfortable professional overnight stay, Mahendra goes overboard (with the abundantly capable Jintu at his side) to ensure you are well cared for. In fact, when I took ill they checked in on me to ensure that a doctor was called to visit me in person. Travel arrangements were assisted with happily.

Lily assures all the food is fresh and readily available by locating the kitchen next to the kitchen and patio so there are no surprises.

The villa is elegant yet warm, well-manicured yet never stuffy.

Though outside of the main sites this is the best bargain around. You will be cared for honestly, professionally and kindly.

After researching many options, my husband and I decided to stay for a week or so at Jai Vilas in Jaipur. We hoped to have a smooth and comfortable landing spot for our first time returning to India in over 8 years... and we were thrilled with our choice!!

Firstly, Mr. Joy Singh answered my emails quickly and kept in touch as our plans changed. He and his wife, Archana, speak perfect English so it was easy to converse before and during our stay. The guest house is within their family compound, with the guest rooms located off of an upstairs terrace. The rooms are traditionally decorated with understated and lovely color schemes and fascinating black and white photos highlighting the Rajput history. The bed was excellent and their solar hot water system functioned well. The upstairs terace is the perfect spot to enjoy the morning sun or afternoon sunset. The area is peaceful and the family and staff are always helpful and available to answer your every need. Mr. Joy Singh even helped us to locate a long lost friend, in a far away district of Rajasthan, which was a near miracle. He went out of his way to take care of such a request, which is certainly above and beyond the call of duty! For this we were truly grateful.

We chose to eat our meals at the guesthouse and were amazed at the quality of all dishes and the abundance at each and every meal. We felt that the prices were quite reasonable for the ease of not having to run around looking for a good restaurant and for the tastiness and variety of the dishes. We are vegetarian and we felt like royalty, ordering anything we liked and each meal was more delicious than the next. Be sure to ask for the stuffed eggplant and paneer butter masala – out of this world!!!
They also offer non-veg, which we have heard is quite famous as well.

As our stay was over a week, we were offered a discounted rate for our double room and we very much appreciated that offer.

Our recommendation is a full 100% and to add further weight to our verdict, during our stay (November 2013) Conde Nast's Traveller magazine published in their latest issue the top 20 guesthouses in India and Jai Vilas was the only guesthouse honored with ranking in the whole of Jaipur!! So, kudos to Jai Vilas and many, many thanks for a lovely stay!

We were very pleased to stay at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast and can definitely recommend it. The residence is located in a nice, clean, and quiet part of Jaipur. The room we stayed in was really pretty and very clean. We got a feeling of being home and we were taken very good care of. We also got great tips and help from the family who runs the place. We had dinner at the place one night - very tasteful! The breakfast is also nice. We can definitely recommend this little Jaipur pearl!
