Umaid Bhawan Hotel, Jaipur
D1-2A, Behind Collectorate (Via) Bank Road, Bani Park Jaipur
Whenever one thinks of Rajasthan, the first thing that comes to mind is heritage, palaces, bandhej (sarees and suits) and the royal culture. Keeping in mind these we choose Umaid Bhawan for our two day stay in Jaipur. The property is graded as heritage hotel, made out of an old haveli and converted into a hotel.
This is a hotel which gives you a palace type feeling when you stay here. It's a perfect blend of heritage and luxury. The best part of this property is that it's well maintained inspite of being so old. The staff here is excellent and courteous and will ensure that they go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and the furniture in the room is made of pure teak and is very old but well maintained. The pool is small but clean. The food is excellent especially the Rajasthani cuisine. Do try the Dal Baati and churma here as it was very tasty. The lobby and the front office had a very traditional look which matched with the entire look of the property. Would definitely come here again with a bigger group during my next trip to Jaipur.
We were a group of 5 people and we had booked two rooms in the Umaid bhawan hotel. The check in process was very smooth. The guy at the front desk seemed really polite and courteous. He told us everything about how to get to the famous tourist spots in the city and how to deal with the shop-keepers while shopping for Souvenirs. Our room was pretty nice. It was decorated in a traditional Rajasthani style. The bathroom also was pretty good. The food of this place was amazing. We especially loved the dal-baati-churma. I had a really good time at this hotel and I would recommend it to everyone.
We did not face any problem in reaching the hotel. The hotel location was convenient and situated in the mid of the city. The railway station and bus stand were just about 2 kilometres away from the hotel. Inside and outside appearance of the hotel was ok. There was no delay in check-in and check-out process. The staff members behaviour was not very good. Services were not provided in time. Rooms were not provided as per the website. Garden View was available from the room. Washrooms were neat and clean. Food quality and taste was good. Varieties like Veg and Non- Veg food were available. Service system was available. Activities like swimming pool, indoor outdoor games were available in the hotel. I would suggest them to update the right information on their website. I was on a holiday trip with family. Hotel staff helped us with a guide.
My friend found this guest house on the net the day before we arrived in Jaipur. Wasn\'t exactly sure of what to expect, as most know you can\'t always trust pictues on the interenet. Our delight and excitement when we turned into the street and saw it lit up was almost out of control. Having only stayed in 5 star accomodation in Mumbai I was so pleased to be staying in something more traditional with the feeling I was actually in India for the first time since arriving. The artwork and hand painted walls just amazed me. I was in awe for the first few hours at all my eyes could take in. We ate dinner their the first night and couldn\'t complain about the food or the prices approx 200 rupees for the two of us. There are no fridges or safes in the room but the hosts were kind enough to keep some drinks cool for us in the kitchen. Never at any time felt unsafe or that things would go missing. The staff, although found it hard to understand us, were friendly and always had a smile.
