“watched the film? now live the experience!”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

like many others we were enthralled by "best exotic marigold hotel" and it sparked our journey to jaipur. we searched around for heritage hotels and were delighted to find Naila Bagh. entering a different world when driving through the gates from the clamor and squalor of the streets into a serene idyllic journey back in time.

it's charming and personal but by far from perfect - but who wants perfect anyway? staying here is part of history and the development of a beautiful old property is still ongoing. the staff is very friendly and helpful (sometimes a tiny bit slow but they make up with it on marks for effort) and the owner (great great grandson of the former prime minister of Rajasthan) is an extremely interesting, friendly and warm-hearted host with many stories to tell, ideas of places to go and things to see - just ask him. he also kidnapped us for a fantastic evening in the hills above the city to watch the dewali lights - thanx again by the way for that ;-)


the food was great, the rooms spacious and well kept, the atmosphere was very homely and all in all a great place that we will recommend to others.

Arriving to this place was a bliss! No matter how much I appreciate the hustle and bustle of the city, I need a place to breath in between. This was the place for me!

The staff were attentive, service minded, polite and there when you needed them. I got a large (LARGE) room with a splendid bathroom and a seating area outside, overlooking the pool and the peacocks. I spent quite some time at the hotel; eating a long breakfast, doing some yoga, taking a bath, reading... A very relaxing place.

Breakfast was ok. Or, I guess it was more than ok, but I'm a little picky...

I loved the interiors. Yes, they're old and sometimes a bit worn, but everything is perfectly clean and functioning. I prefer when the old charm has been kept.

I would definitely recommend this place and I would love to go back!

Ironically, the day we arrived, this hotel received a 'top 15' hotel award from TripAdvisor. We were less than impressed.

The water in our room was not working upon our arrival. Once fixed, it still did not work well. The shower was challenging. The detailing of the room showed a real lack of concern, e.g. toilet paper stuffed into a hole in the wood paneling of the bathroom, old tape stuck to walls, paint peeling off, rust on the sink. While we appreciated the fact that they try to retain the heritage look and feel of the place, it should still appear well cared for!

We also had two administrative challenges - first, their credit card machine had not been working for 7 days, but we only learned about it when we attempted to check out and pay by credit card. We ended up having to pay cash - not our first choice.

Also, we were significantly overcharged for our laundry bill - but due to the rush and circumstances of our checking out, did not realize it until a day later. When we realized what had happened, we asked our tour company to contact the hotel to rectify the situation. The hotel denied any wrong-doing. We were out 1200 rupees.

Waouw was the first word I said when I came in. Well, for all the description the other tripadvisors mates have done their job very well! Please read all the historical details in there. As for me, the most important is to feel really being in India. Second hotel in Jaipur, the third in India I feel home in this place for the first time.
Very nice people, go there really and relax chill out next to the pool

A beautiful place to stay at for the environment. It is and looks like an old palace with all the old decorations and the the inside and back yard has a stunning environment. The front and entrance area would benefit a lot from a serious face lift and cleaning up (don't leave a lot of junk out there guys!).
The back yard pool really looks nice and we went for a swim but the cleanliness is not top with pigeons drinking from it and the towels by the pool were not that good.
Rooms were really nice looking (very beautiful indeed!) and the beds were good to sleep in. The locks were a bit odd though...
We left early so got a package breakfast, nice to arrange it but quality of the sandwiches was not so good.
So stay a night for the environment and the lobby area, it is interesting.

Location is great, just 5 min to the main sights by rikshaw, costs less than 50 INR. Free wifi. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. There is a large garden with nice swimming pool, peacocks, monkeys. There is also a good restaurant in the hotel.

The accommodation was great very homely. Rooms were huge and decently appointed. Would not bother eating there. Service was slow. The kitchen was quite a distance away from the dining room so if you ordered anything it took ages to come. I ordered beer which they forgot to bring altogether.
I would recommend staying but have my meals else where.
