"Good city to visit with family"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is a historical city. Not writing much about its history as it is available on google, showing its other sides.
Clean city as you will find dustbins at every 500 m on main roads. E autos are running in good quantity which are enjoyable. City bus are also plying in all areas including old city. Metro is running in some part of city which is not currently useful for travellers. Visiting places are under construction of route. People are helpful. Traffic sense is very good compare to any city of Gujarat. Even 2 wheelers are also stopping at signals at 10:00 pm without any traffic police presence. Bargain is everywhere in city. Don't buy from places near historical places. Same thing you can buy from local markets in half rate.
4 days are enough to visit full city peacefully. Roads are good to reach Jaipur from Gujarat.

"Jaipur through my eyes"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was an overall good experience of mine. Jaipur is a great place to seek something different from the regular and monotonic life routine. Not only for chilling but a great place to gather knowledge beyond our history books. For sightseeing purpose there are lotta places to visit. Among them I visit ted Birla temple, City palace, Hawa mahal, Jantarmantar, Sheesh mahal, Jaigarh fort, Amer fort, Nahargarh fort, Jal Mahal and Rajmandir cinema hall. It is said that the Rajmandir hall used to be the biggest cinema hall in Asia. But now it is one of the biggest halls. The forts are the must visit ones. Okay now when it comes to food they are completely vegetarian. The famous foods from there are Daal, Baati and Churma. One can google that to know how it looks like. But honestly I didn't like that Dal and Baati. But Churma is sort of a sweet. And I loved that. Well it was a great fun to visit Jaipur. And I'm eagerly waiting for my next trip to Jaipur.

"Not happy"

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Due to my refund process I m not happy. No good response of hoteliers .. Call at hotel many times but every time they give a reson. When I checkout from hotel the reception person told me that refund is reflect in my account in 24 hours .. But the date today after 15 days of checkout this is not reflect in my account.
Behaviour of staff is not good. When I mail to dm of hotel he take action against it .. But I not accept this type of Behaviour from a five star hotel ..
All things are good in hotel nice amenities clean room nice loaction. But a suggestion to all of travellers please ensure about your security amount which hotel deposit in advance ..

"Scaled City"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Jaipur is India's first planned city. City develop as per plan & all road connected. More conscious about Maugham & offensive about maharana partap. Public transportation is good but many time it's may be time consuming. I must tell that please select your hotel nr M I road because it's Central point of Jaipur. & My hotel Tara nivas also good
