Unfortunately the Hotel rating system is not well understood in India and a four star resort or hotel is often the same as a one star. They often mix the review stars with hotel ratings. This is NOT a 4 star hotel as mentioned on many other websites! It's a lovely small B & B run by a very friendly retired Lt Col and his wife. It has exceptional good reviews but some problems are not mentioned that we found. For the most, the previous good reviews are correct. The staff are lovely, the atmosphere homely and it's a quiet area and ideally situated close to old Jaipur. The owner can help arrange a reliable local taxi guide for a reasonable price. Our problem was we froze in Winter! The beds are not "made" and have no linen; you will need to use the Army style blankets only. There are no heaters and no plan to get any. The water is freezing cold! it is listed as having hot water but the solar hot water heaters are totally ineffective in winter and the Col. doesn't like to supplement the heater with the electric override. As long as you realise this you should find it gives good value overall though, but bring your jacket if you are going to Jaipur over New Year time! Although we were cold I would still recommend it though as it is good value due to the friendly owners and safe feeling of this well decorated house.
