Reviewed 2 June 2012

i stayed here for 2 nights. rooms are okay needs little more maintenance, washroom was clean, with all basic amenities like, tv refridgerator ac etc. best part of this hotel is the location. as there are so many hotels near by bus station, but among some good and budget hotel, this hotel is the one with very good staff and manager. due to unavailability of deluxe room, they provided me a royal deluxe in the price of deluxe. Food is good specially breakfast. Good for business travellers.

Room Tip: road facing rooms are nice

Nothing like the professional pictures displayed. Old, moldy, loud, dirty. Not worth it at all, pay some extra $$ if needed and stay somewhere else.

Dear Guest,

I am extremely disappointed to hear the news of your stay not being conformable with us. Please be assured that the pictures on our website are absolutely genuine, and of our actual rooms/public areas. However please do write to me if possible to explain what really went wrong. I am more than willing to correct the same quickly and ensure a comfortable stay. If you could provide us your stay details and specifics about where we fell short of your expectations, it would be really helpful for us. All of us at Shalimar always try to ensure that our guests have a good stay in Jaipur and we hope that you would give us another opportunity to change your perception of our hotel.

Please write back to me on gaurav@hotel-shalimar.com.

Regards,
Gaurav Gupta

We stayed here for only two nights, as a stop-over on our road trip from Delhi to Udaipur.
Finding the place was a bit of a trauma, due mostly to the major roadworks going on (Apr 2012), and that was with a Hindi speaker on board. Each time you missed it meant a long trip up the road before you could turn round. Note for the unwary: Sindhi Camp is on one side of the road, the bus station is opposite, and the hotel is off a side road on the same side of the main road as Sindhi Camp. The hotel doesn't jump out at you, but it is a little set back and the parking is on the front (you have to leave your car keys so they can shuffle cars around).
Anyway, the staff were courteous and helpful. The room was great. You couldn't call it spotless, though, if you're very fussy about such things, and we didn't work out how to get hot water (not that you need it when it was 38C in the afternoon).
We didn't use the restaurant, so I can't comment on that. The food we had delivered to the room was excellent, along with the service.
We had some fairly noisy people in the room (and corridor) next door, but nothing to complain about. It was only because we had a really early start on the second day.
In summary, the location is great, once you find it ..., the rooms, service and food are very good., especially for the price. I'd recommend it.

Stayed 2 nights in nice large room with good sunset view.
2nd stay here and best value on my stay in Jaipur.
Good staff service for check in and room attendance. Though hate the unecassary triplicate paper work for Foreign tourism tracking and the 30 minutes it takes to check in. India is certainly not a tourist friendly country beaurocratic wise.
Has Bar attached for evening drinks and eats.
Breakfast was served in the room due to restaurant renovation .
Short distance to Bus stand, railway station and MI Road for Shopping.
Travel services are offered for visiting the many sites and palaces of Jaipur

True to its name, Shalimar lives up to it and lets one experience it as well!!!Travelling enroute to Jodhpur, landing in Jaipur at the dead of midnight, a bystander directed me to Hotel Shalimar! Little would one expect at such an hour from a hotel camped near the busy bus station of Sindhi Camp, but Shalimar was different. Smiling and amiable staff and the freshness of home cooked food nudged the weariness away!A clean room with a sparkling bathroom made for the rest!Comfortable,hospitable and quality would summarise the experience. The sheer simplicity of the ambience has made me retrace my steps to Hotel Shalimar everytime I am in Jaipur. The central location sans the common din puts it way ahead of others! A must visit property for all my fellow tripadvisors.

I have stayed in the hotel for couple of times in the last six months, a two minutes walk from the bus stand. Food quality and service is also good, moreover, its cheap. The rooms are good, staff is cooperative.

One of the good things for me that they have bar in the hotel only. Best hotel for people who are regular travelers to Jaipur and looking for an affordable option.

Room Tip: Book in advance for a good deal!
