The Laxmi Palace is a very nice, new hotel just outside of the central bus station in Jaipur. The condition is very good (it is only 3 years old), the hand-painted artwork on the ceilings throughout the hotel is stunning, and all of the staff were great (Raj manages the dining area and was exceptionally supportive during our visit). I would highly recommend this hotel... but with 2 minor considerations. The first is that it is located very close to the central bus station. Although the hotel itself is quite and on a nice street ~2 streets away, the nearest area for food/shopping is pretty chaotic and not the nicest place to visit. This did not bother me, but might others. The second was that the bed was very thin and not very comfortable. Spending 2 weeks in hotels in India during this trip, the bed was probably the least comfortable of any of them. Perhaps this will be upgraded when they finish the second building of the hotel, which should include larger dining facilities and a pool, later next year.
