Reviewed 9 May 2013

Tucked in the middle of noisy, busy Jaipur is this secluded, quiet gem of a guesthouse. The first thing you will notice are the perfectly maintained grounds and garden. I challenge you to find a blade of grass out of place! The gracious hosts---the Singhs--greet you upon arrival and truly make you feel like you are a guest in their private home (which has been in the family for generations with ties to the Maharajah of Jaipur.) Our room was large, appointed with beautiful antiques, and had a private balcony overlooking the lovely back yard. A delicious dinner was served in the common dining area right outside our room. Everything in the guesthouse was spotless---I mean SPOTLESS. The staff was so friendly and gracious and helpful. My only gripe was that we only stayed one night---I wanted to move in!! The price was very affordable too. We stayed at the Imperial in New Delhi and the Taj Palace in Mumbai but the Bawara Kothi was probably my favorite lodging in India.

We stayed in a lovely hotel in Jaipur that was both reasonably priced and holds a bit of the history of India. The family of the cousin of the Maharajah of Jaipur own this hotel and have mementos of this relationship decorating this quaint hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the staff are lovely. A delicious breakfast is included with a choice of Indian breakfast or a western breakfast. The owner is a charming woman with two adorable sons who live in separate quarters but she is around to help in whatever way she can. It is very well located and across the street is an excellent inexpensive Indian restaurant with delightful outdoor and indoor dining spaces. If you are looking for an Indian hotel experience rather than a sterile Western hotel chain experience, I highly recommend this charming hotel.

We will revisit India just to meet the most gracious hosts at Barwara Kothi. They do everything imaginable and even beyond imagination to make you feel at home. they took excellent care when one of us had health issues.

The place is immaculately maintained and the pleasant stay makes you nostalgic.

We loved our stay here! This was one of the best places we stayed at in India, great property, good service, very relaxing and royal. They have a beautiful garden and beautiful rooms. We were quite sad that we stayed here only for a day. Great value for money.

This place was simply wow. The place is very well maintained and all the artefacts kept in the property gives one a very royal feeling.

We had gone to Jaipur to attend a friend’s wedding and then decided to stay for a couple of days and visit places in and around Jaipur. I zeroed in on this Home Stay "Barwara Kothi," and I must say I made a great choice and moreover my wife was very impressed with the place (what more can one want :-)).

The room was very well maintained, and everything in the room and for that matter the whole property was so calm and serene, that at one point of time we were thinking of staying within the property and not venturing out. My wife loved the way everything was done up in such a simplistic yet awe inspiring way. The room had a big balcony overlooking a garden and we really enjoyed having our morning tea there.

The breakfast was good but surely some more variety can be added to suit Indian taste. We didn’t have dinner at the place, but saw other guests dining. The ambience was really good and the food smelt awesome. So we did miss having dinner there. Next time maybe.

The hostess was extremely helpful in guiding us about the places to visit and shop around. She personally came to us while we were having breakfast and enquired about our stay and if we needed any help. That really added to the personal touch.

The only problem with the property is that near a railway track and if you are not a sound sleeper, you might have difficulty in getting a good night sleep. Having said that, I will definitely recommend this place to everyone visiting Jaipur and in fact I myself would love to stay at the property again.

We had travelled across India from the far North West with a variety of stops on the way, a hectic journey. We were looking for a stay in Jaipur that would revitalise us as well as inform.
Depali's welcome at Barwara Kothi was reassuring. The lovingly cared for garden creates an excellent surrounding and our room, accessed through the garden, was spacious and furnished to a high standard. The small veranda a good place to relax. The house was very clean, tastefully and interestingly decorated in line with it's history.
During our travels the transport we had experienced had at time been challenging, the transport recommended by the Barwara Kothi was trouble free.
For our 2 night stay we ate in. Food is pre-ordered and ready on time. We were very satisfied with the standard of food and the service.
we would certainly use this 'Home Stay' again for it's ambiance, proximity to central Jaipur and price.

Room Tip: The room ground floor at the back and accessed through the garden very peaceful.

This place was charming. Not for those wanting 5 star but in my opinion much nicer. Run by the beautiful and helpful Deepali and her mother-in-law. Comfy rooms with very comfortable beds, very clean and tastefully decorated. Reasonably priced near the city and with good recommendations for driver, eating out and where to shop. We ate in one evening and the food was delicious. Would want a room at the back of the building next time as the road does get noisy at around 6 am. But I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
