    If you like your hotels to be large, tall with lots of straight corridors and hundreds of rooms all the same. Do not go here, you will hate it.

    However if you like small, quirky, beautifully furnished with great service, you will love it.

    I will not repeat what dozens of others have already said, only to say that all the plus points, I totally agree with.

    I will however disagree with one or two comments passed.

    Anybody who cannot manufacture a decent breakfast from the COMPLIMENTARY buffet is not trying very hard.

    To describe the Rajasthani Folk Troupe as 'caterwauling' leaves me scratching my head. What live entertainment would you like in the restaurant of a Rajasthani hotel?

    Unique Quality: Everything about this accommodation is outstanding. An absolutely delightful experience

    Directions: A peaceful residential district

  • An Amazing Find

    by

    Umaid Bhawan is a the family mansion-turned-inn of a local family that has owned the property for 100 years or so. It was the perfect combination of local accommodations and comfort and it was one of the most well cared for private properties that I saw in India with amazing painting and furniture throughout. Top that off with a roof deck that served tea or dinner as the sun set over Jaipur and it made for the most lovely setting.

    One note - the beds were relatively hard, as they are even in the western hotels in India and the shower, like most small hotels in India, had to be heated via the in bathroom water tank. While it is not what we are used to in the U.S. it was a small accommodation to make for such a wonderful environment that provided a calm retreat in the middle of a very bustling city.

    Unique Quality: Rajastani architecture and furnishings - all meticulous. Fabulous local food made in the roof-top kitchen. Roof patio that looked out over Jaipur. Great service and a friendly staff.

  • Great stay!

    by

    We scheduled to stay in Jaipur for 4 nights so that we could avoid staying in Delhi for longer than absolutely necessary on our return leg and we could not have picked a better place in Jaipur to stay. Its a great middle-of-the-road place to stay without going broke. Its close to the centre of the town but away enough not to avoid the noise and chaos. The standard double that we got was a little small, but well fitted, comfortable and clean. Service by staff and management were good. Thr roof top restaurant was quaint and well decorated. The food was good enough for us to have our breakfast and dinner there everyday. We ended up staying here for 5 nights because one of us eventually succumbed to acute stomach and bowel problems. A call to the manager at 5.45am, resulted in the doctor calling us back at 6am and at our room by 6.30am. We were impressed and grateful beyond words to the resident manager (RanVijay) and the highly experienced (30 years) and well regarded doctor, Dr, Chandra Sen of Galundia Clinic, Jaipur. The hotel has two PCs for internet use for a reasonable rate and a pool to cool off after a day of sightseeing. The interior of the hotel is richly decorated in typical Rajasthan fashion. A great insight. Every wednesday a puppet performance with live Rajasthani music is catered for close to the pool area, but we think you probably will need to pay to watch this - we were too tired to bother even though it was right below our front window (we were on the 2nd floor). This is a place we would recommend to anyone choosing to stay in Jaipur for any given period and it was excellent value for money.

    Unique Quality: Nice friendly family runing this heritage hotel.

    Directions: The hotel offers free pick up from train and bus station and charges rupees 250 for a airport pick up.

  • NOT A GOOD PLACE TO STAY

    by

    I BOOKED VIA THE INTERNET AND CONFIRMED TWICE. WHEN WE ARRIVED OUR ROOMS WERE NOT AVAILABLE AND WE HAD TO SHARE. THIS WAS AN OMEN OF THINGS TO COME. WE MOVED ROOMS THE NEXT DAY AND I WAS NOT GIVEN THE ROOM I HAD CONFIRMED. I ALSO CHECKED BEFORE WE ARRIVED IF ANY RENOVATION WAS GOING ON WHEN WE WOULD BE THERE I WAS SPECIFICALLY TOLD NO. THIS WAS A LIE. THE PLACE HAD EXTENSIVE RENOVATION GOING ON. MY ROOM WAS ON THE GROUND FLOOR AND WAS 6 FEET FROM A RUBBISH DUMP THAT HAD OPENED PLASTIC BAGS ETC FULL OF RUBBISH.
    DISSAPOINTINGLY MY FRIEND HAD £60 POUNDS STOLEN FROM HIS LOCKED ROOM.
    I ASKED THE MANAGER AT LEAST 6 TIMES TO FIND OUT TRAIN TIMES FOR US WHICH HE FAILED TO DO, HE ALSO SENT ME TO A TRAVEL AGENT TO BUY TRAIN TICKETS. THE AGENT DID NOT SELL TRAIN TICKETS. HE ALSO GAVE ME INCORRECT INFORMATION ABOUT TRAIN TIMES.
    THE OWNERS WERE SURLY MISERABLE AND ARROGANT. THE MOTHER LOOKED LIKE SHE WOULD EXPLODE WITH ANGER ANY SECOND. INSPITE OF THE GOOD PICS ON THE WEBSITE THIS PLACE IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO STAY. YOU CANNOT RELY ON WHAT THEY SAY.

    Unique Quality: THE FACADE HIDES THE GLARING DEFECTS
    STAFF WHO DO NOT GIVE ACCURATE INFORMATION
    INSECURE VALUABLES IN ROOMS
    CONFIRMATION OF ROOMS MEANS NOTHING

  • Heritage House hotel jaipur

    by

    A Beautiful heritage hotel in a city of traffic chaos . Hard to believe this hotel is so central but away from the hustle and bustle . The architecture is magnificent and holds the vintage flavour of india . The pool area is lovely and relaxing and the rooms are decent and clean . The room menu is quite basic but tasty . The porters were very helpful and friendly and the Gentleman owner was very accomodating . Even though one of us was sick and there was renovation works going on during our stay which finished as we wher leaving , it didnt detract from a comfortable and enjoyable few nights . Good location , good service and excellent value for money . What more can you ask for .

    Directions: The hotel is centrally located about 1 km from city centre and they offer free pick up from train and bus station on arrival .

    Some days peaciful in a "oasis " after much days of hard life !!!

    Unique Quality: Fantastic hotel with a little pool and a/c rooms.
    It is a little expensive for a budget travel but you can deal.
    It is worth the trouble
    They can offer you a cheap guide ( see transportation ) who help you to avoid the others pushing guides and rickshaw-men.

    Directions: We phoned to the hotel and they picked up us at the train station if you take a rickshaw tell it "behind the Collectorate".
    An advice: if the rickshaw-man would move you to another hotel , the rule is to be determined .

    Nice Hotel in Pink City

    by

    If you are tired, if you need a good accomodation Umaid Bhawan is your hotel.
    The Hotel is very, very nice and friedly staff.
    Take a look on the web site.
    There is a swimming pool also.

    Unique Quality: The hotel offer you a free pickup from the station or bus stand.
    You aren't in the Pink City so the hotel give you a possibility to move with a moto risciò.
    For 300 Rs you have a good guide for all day and that don't bring you in many stores.
    YOU CAN DECIDE WHERE AND WHEN.
    Very important

More about Umaid Bhawan Heritage House Hotel

A lovely Little Hotel.

by Hmmmm about Hotel Umaid Bhawan - Jaipur.

Hotel Umaid Bhawan is an old heritage property converted into a 3-star hotel run by the Rathore family.

I don't often like to stay in hotels ranked by Lonely planet as one of the best run hotels in Jaipur, but sometimes one has to. This is one of those places. This hotel is built in the traditional Rajput-style with attractive balconies, terraces, gardens and antique furnishings. and it exhudes charm of bygone years. the Interior is wonderfully furnished. The rooms, are big, cool, clean and also tastefully furnished with Rajput furnishings. They have a pool and a small restaurant. That serves a good Thali. Recreational activities for guests include a good but small outdoor swimming pool and performances folk dancing or puppet shows.

Oh the rooms have a port for a lap-top or PDA - WHich is kewl.

Great find in Jaipur!

by schat about Umaid Bhawan Hotel

We stayed here in January, and loved it! There are a variety of types/sizes of rooms, a pool, and a great rooftop restaurant. the service was friendly and efficient. Rooms are kept very clean, and are beautifully decorated. There are 2 computers available for internet use (very small charge). The hotel is a heritage hotel, and its historic past is well preserved and beautifully represented throughout the hotel. There are a number of terraces on different floors, and a puppet show in the evening. We had a suite, that included a screened in porch/balcony.
