“Noisy and dirty rooms!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

A really noisy hotel with a veneer of sophistication but this veneer is extremely thin. The bathrooms are not cleaned, it's positioned on a busy, noisy street, and the thing that really got to me was that our bed cover was filthy. I put it on the floor and slept under my sarong.

From Love Kush, Agra to Hotel Shalimar, Jaipur. Chosen for its price and location, Hotel Shalimar is excellent value for money, with the standard but very good restaurant menu of equal value and just 300 metres from the bus stand, our arrival and departure point from Jaipur. The stand out feature for me was being greeted by a lady on reception! As a foreign traveller, I had not realised how important this was to me as a woman until now. Having someone to ask for directions to the pharmacy. Being offered a collection instead, and then a chaperone, when I indicated I needed to go myself, was nurturing. Bumping into her on the stairs and having a woman to woman conversation was priceless. Aastha and her husband own the hotel. Having purchased it a few years ago in a fairly run down state, they are a good way through the refurbishment. A refurbishment that is using good quality fixtures and fittings and utilising Aastha’s feminine aesthetic and attention to detail, evidenced in the room we stayed in. Although the room was small, probably due to the constraints of original construction, it was beautifully decorated. From the painted ceiling detail to the framed embroidery above the bed and the soft side lights, Hotel Shalimar was indeed a haven. The service was prompt and attentive. I hope this was the level everyone received, and I think it was, observing interactions in the foyer. Brian and I both highly recommend Hotel Shalimar and will take our guests there when we return to Jaipur. We now travel to Delhi then transit to Hyderabad and Hotel Ashoka Klaasic.

Room Tip: I think they like to give you a refurbished room if possible. It showcases the property and ensures...

The room was almost filled with bed with hardly any space. I knocked my head hard on the toilet door concrete top which has a funny construction. For shorter people might be OK! Surprise to find no safe deposit box.

Room Tip: Rooms without hearing noises coming from Bus Horns as the hotel is near Bus Stand!

It was a great pleasure staying with Hotel Shalimar in Jaipur. Its Club Room is excellent with sufficient modern facilities. Housekeeping was good enough. The food was awesome at very reasonable price. I would advise to stay with Hotel Shalimar in Jaipur. SHALIMAR IN JAIPUR.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are good with enough sunlight.

We, family of four, self, wife and my 2 sisters, all sr. Citizens had truly a wonderful experience staying in hotel Shalimar during our visit to Jaipur 26-30 Nov. What impressed us most is the courteous and respectful behavior of all the staff and officials of the hotel. Rooms are very well decorated, clean bathrooms, very prompt and excellent services. Food too good in quality as well as quantity. We as sr.citizen guests were fully satisfied and whole heartedly enjoyed our stay in this hotel. In future visits to Jaipur I will definitely prefer to stay in this hotel and so my advice to all.
Highly recommended.
