Last year we started our journey in Jaipur at Dera Mandawa and left a glowing review.
This year we planned our month long journey through Gujarat and Rajasthan to end here. Dera Mandawa still holds its own amongst the best places in both states and now there are even more beautiful rooms to choose from.
Thank you Mr Singh for taking time out to make us feel so much at home, we enjoyed our conversations so much and the second opportunity to see the traditional puppet show.
I am sure we shall be back to see you again in future years.

Room Tip: The new rooms on the upper balcony are super.

It’s so unusual to stay in a hotel that so substantially adds to your experience of a place - beyond being a comfortable place to sleep at night. We were made to feel so welcome - and it felt like Indian hospitality, not faux western hospitality. I really hope I get the chance to stay here again. The courtyard is charming (an excellent place to sit writing postcards and sipping a lime soda). Such attention to details! They bring a tea and coffee tray to your room in the morning at a time you choose, which was a really nice touch (the masala tea is excellent). When we had an early start, catching the train to our next destination, they gave us a packed breakfast to take with us. This was my favourite hotel of my whole trip. Just wonderful.

We stayed only 2 days in this jewel which is a heritage mansion still kept by the family owners in Jaipur. The owner Mr Singh is a very refined and cultured man who talks to all the guests and gives the privilege of exposing us to the local culture and heritage. The rooms are unique and charming, we had lovely home made meals in the garden and the staff was adorable especially Mr Hariz. My only regret was not being able to stay more days at this lovely place.

Leave the bustle of Jaipur and enter an oasis of tranquility - just off the Sansar Chandra Road!! Beautiful, spacious accommodation with day balconies and peaceful courtyards. The owner, Durga Singh, is such a charismatic and knowledgeable host; his staff are so very friendly and helpful. The home-cooked food was delicious and served in the outdoor gardens. We couldn't fault it. We traveled with our (adult) son, who was given the honeymoon suite with circular bed -- say no more! Mr Singh is a staunch advocate of eco-friendly practices, with solar heated water and bio gas cooking.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the central courtyard/gardens; I would have no preference.

After a long drive to Jaipur, the Dera Mandawa was a welcome oasis of peace and calm. Our host, Durga Singh was a charming man and was very welcoming upon our arrival. The hotel is very close to all the main attractions of Jaipur. Our room was clean and spacious. The shower was very good, plenty of hot water. The bed was very comfortable.
The staff were all charming and made our 2 night stay a delightful experience. A pot of coffee was brought to our room each morning (we had requested this).The food was excellent ,and it was so nice to eat in the inner courtyard. Our host was very attentive and chatted to the guests at dinner. This was an excellent place to stay and a welcome place to return to after a day of sightseeing.
