Sajjan Niwas
Ranked #111 of 393 Hotels in Jaipur
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here fore two nights and based on other reviews feel like we stayed in a different hotel. Our room was very shabby with dirty smelly sheets. We had to wear flip flops in the bathroom because the floor was so filthy. The staff are rude and indifferent. The decor is dated and our room had scuffs all over the walls. The sister hotel next door is much better and their restaurant is good. It is located quite a way from the sights and amenities if Jaipur.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

My husband and I stay at Sajjan Niwas whenever we are in Jaipur. The rooms are very clean and we love the antique furniture and design. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the rooms are very affordable. The swimming pool is clean and well maintained as is the hotel. The rooftop restaurant is lovely and there is a good variety to choose from on the menu. The hotel is in a quite cul-de-sac and it is very easy to get into the main centre of Jaipur as there is always transport readily available outside the hotel. We recommend Sajjan Niwas to travellers who enjoy the cultural heritage ambiance of India.

I stayed here for around 3days with my family last winters.The ambiance is very homely and the heritage look adds to the appeal. Although it is quite far from jaipur airport,it's relatively close to other tourist destinations.It is also away from crowded areas of city so you can spend your time with peace and serenity.Taxi and autorikshaws are available on demand,so travelling is not an issue.The staff seemed a bit illtrained and newbies.Although the swimming pool was a bit small,it was well maintained and clean.

We came for a short stay at the place to catch the train next morning. It is quite near to the railway station (~2-3 km) but away from the hustle bustle of the city. Not much shops would be there at walking distance mainly daily necessity shops. You can take an auto to visit MI road to enjoy shopping which is not so far. It is the traditional Rajesthan Hawali with decent clean rooms.
It even has a swimming pool which looked clean but we didn't try.
Food was good and like home made (though a little expensive). Good for a simple stay.

This hotel gives you what you would expect from a 'traditional hotel'. It looks lovely but very basic, the bed was very comfortable but only a single quilt on a double bed, I also expect things like toilet paper to be provided. To be fair it was supplied as soon as I asked for it with a smile (although I expect they wanted a tip for bringing it to our room - I don't tip for being provided with toilet paper. The room was very spacious and the swimming pool looked nice but we didn't try it. It was very difficult to get rid of the puppet show guys on the roof top restaurant but they went eventually. The restaurant was great, really great service and what we had was very nice but the best bit about the hotel was very efficient, always working free WiFi!

Jaipur is just awesome. Hotel Sajjan niwas is quite far from airport. its almost 14 kms and just 2 kms from railway staion though. Hotel is in residential area were you cannot find any taxi or auto rikshaws. So better book your cabs in advance. Its some what isolated from jaipur market area. But you can have peace from hustle bustle of thye city. They have large rooms with traditional interiors. Rooms have cable t.v and AC.Bathrooms are not that clean but its ok. They serve rajastani food in their top roof restaurant. Food is good. They have some pupet show at evening with dinner. Morning view is really nice one can enjoy breakfast on top roof restaurant. Overall nice place. But you can have better options around with better service.

Room Tip: Book topmost room for easy access to restaurant. Other rooms are also nice.

We had mixed feelings about sajjan niwas. As I will explain below.

It feels like quite a new hotel and is a lovely haveli style building. Inside the hotel is lovely as well, with nice sofa areas on each floor. The restaurant is also nice on the top floor.

The room was really nice. Quite large, cable tv, good AC, nice furnishings. Also all rooms seem to have balconies which is nice. Bathroom was also good.

Location is a bit out of Jaipur centre, but in an area with loads of hotels. But to the edge of this area, so not any restaurants close walking distance. As we were there with a driver wasn't a problem but if without transport more difficult.

Hotel also has a pool, which is a good size and nice, but I would suggest that they follow the idea of the almost identical neighboring hotel and put a net over it as this would stop leaves and birds etc.

Staff in general were friendly enough and reception was helpful.

HOWEVER, our big problem came when we ate at the restaurant. My partner has a nut allergy and we explained this to the waiter (as every night in India) at great length that this could mean hospitalization and difficulty if nuts were in the food and he actually seemed to understand and told us what we could have without nuts. I don't know if this message was just not passed on to the kitchen or if it was forgotten/ignored, but my partner's curry arrived with whopping huge cashew nuts in. Upon pointing this out to the waiter he insisted they were not nuts, so I tasted (I'm not allergic) and confirmed, yes they are nuts, by he still insisted no nuts but we sent the dish back. It only happened twice in 6 weeks in India that nuts were produced in food after long explanations of allergy, so actually quite unusual that a hotel/restaurant couldn't get it right.
I should add that my food was actually quite nice.

The nut issue and denial of it afterwards is the reason for the poor overall rating. However otherwise a nice hotel.

Travelled June 2013, as a couple, AC room, booked as part of Rajasthan tour.
