Comfortable, quaint, heritage hotel
Posted Feb 9, 2016 on Wotif
I stayed during the Jaipur Literature Festival for over a week. I stayed in one of the smaller rooms, 'deluxe', which was comfortable and decorated in the period style.
Govind, the new manager is bringing in new ideas and approaches to the hotel, which are needed. I was looked after by the staff who were very friendly and helpful.
On India Republic Day, we had a lot of fun over breakfast while the staff dressed in traditional clothes and India colours.
I ate several times at the hotel, which offered a fair selection of dishes that were freshly cooked to order.
The hotel is set back from the street so mostly quiet, and a local school is nearby, but not noisy.
Although there were many weddings and parties in nearby buildings at night, which were a bit noisy for other guests who had rooms near the front of the hotel.
The way I think about this hotel is a cross between The Marigold Hotel (film) and 'Fawlty Towers' (TV series). So although somewhat ramshackly, and wait service that varied, the overall experience was comfortable and I felt looked after as a woman traveling on her own.
For a boutique property some of the finer expectations are missing, such as high quality bedding, face tissues in the room, face cloths, a small refrigerator, electrical charging points, and an iron and hair dryer are only available on request.
However, definitely worth staying in, to enjoy the heritage site and the experience.
