Exquisitely restored heritage hotel
Posted Feb 25, 2016
I have stayed at the Raj Palace on four occasions in 2014 and 2015. This is a heritage hotel that was the residence of a royal family of the Amber/Jaipur area. It has been exquisitely restored with extraordinary attention to detail, and has won many awards since opening after restoration in 1997. There are many beautiful courtyards with fountains and traditional decorations, and many stairs and passageways that invite the guest to explore the many areas of this hotel with it's beautiful restoration. The rooms are elegantly decorated in a heritage/historical style, with traditional style furniture from the region and traditional but high-end bathrooms. Many rooms and some public areas also have cabinets with interesting displays of artifacts and family possessions from the early 20th century. There are a number of impressive suites in the hotel, including the presidential suite which occupies 16,000 sq.ft. across four floors. The main dining room is also very impressive, with a double-height ceiling, antique crockery display, and a crystal chandelier which is apparently the largest in India. The service is excellent, with a very attentive and courteous staff. There is a very good menu in the main dining room including a traditional thali which I enjoyed on one visit, and lighter fare is also available in a separate coffee shop. Good location for most of the main attractions in Jaipur. I absolutely recommend a stay here for a real heritage experience with fine service.
