“My second visit”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My third stay here. It is a family -run hotel and the food is good. The buffet service is excellent and the staff are both friendly and attentive. The rooms are spotless and we were enchanted by the block-printed bedlinen along with the handpainted wall decorations. It was a little chilly to use the pool this time but still great to sit beside it at breakfast. The owners arranged an excellent driver to take us on the next stages of our journey. The receptionist helped us to make reservations for our next stops. Nothing was too much trouble.

A peaceful place in the midst of the old city of Jaipur: upon arriving at the Samode Haveli everything becomes quiet. You're welcomed with a drink on the veranda on a patio while check-in takes place. The Samode Haveli used to be the town residence of a royal family( some members still live here) and is now partially hotel. So all rooms are different.
We had 2 great rooms on a private courtyard.
There is a great pool in the garden and the boys also used the gym.
Service is great, food delicious, the dinning room is just gorgeous. You can have your supper on the patio.
As there are many stairs to go to the different rooms, courtyards,… you should tell them when making reservation.
Wi-Fi is free on the veranda; you must pay if you want it in the room.
We were travelling with our 3 boys and I must say that the Samode made us feel comfortable, like being with friends. Staff very attentive. It is amongst the top 3 of the hotels we stayed at during our Rajasthan tour.

This haveli (built in the 19th century as a resort for the royal family) is conveniently located near the center of Jaipur, close to the main renown places of this city (the old city, the City Palace including the Wind Palace and a great ancient observatory) and not far the not-to-be-missed Amber fort. The architecture of the building is quite unique: you will enjoy the surprising rooms, the lovely inside court, the exceptional breakfast and dinner room, the cosy swimming pool and its adjacent spa. With a better quality of service and some renovation, this hotel could deserve a 5th star. Anyway, should you prefer 4-star authentic hotel to 5-star brand new ones, it’s definitely a very good choice.

The hotel is quite close to the City Palace and some of the shopping areas. It is well maintained, the staff is attentive and the in-house restaurant has decent food (if you are too tired to go anywhere else). The only complaint was they wouldn't allow children in the pool w/o parents even if they know swimming.

This centrally-located heritage hotel is a gem. Exceptional grounds - the courtyard is spacious and well appointed with local newspapers on offer and the poolside setup oozes Art Deco glamour. The rooms, while all beautifully decked out with vintage tiles and period pieces, vary from dungeon like to stunning, and it is thus a good idea to ask to see a couple of options before settling.

An oasis of calm amid the busy hustle of Jaipur life. The staff were very professional and attentive. We found this to be a good base to explore Jaipur for the early part of the day before retreating from the heat for a couple of poolside hours in the afternoon. The food was excellent.

My family and me stayed at the Samode Haveli, in Jaipur, during June 2014. A superbly maintained property, great food and outstanding customer service made our stay an unforgettable one. Centrally located in the heart of Jaipur City, yet, away from the bustling crowd, an oasis of luxury and warm, princely hospitality, Samode Haveli is, truly, a highly recommended value for money option, for a holiday in Jaipur. It was a 'royal' experience that far, far exceeded our expectations!
