We stayed for two nights at their delux rooms, which the owner tells me is a newer addition to the building. The building offers rooms that open into a common balcony, with near-private sitouts in front of the rooms. The rooms are very clean and nice, with antique wooden furnitures that impart a flavourof the strong historica lheritage of the Jaipur city.
At around INR2,500 a day, the hotel offers good value for money for the special 'at home' feel which we got from the staff members. A big thanks to Shankar for looking after us so well. Shankar's very much home-styled food was simply great after a tired day of sightseeing. That said, I do admit being a little disappointed to know that breakfast is not included with the room rates, as its the kind one expects in any B&B or Inns, having seen the guesthouse listed in such a category, we kind of expected it. But one can always forgive such minor nitty gritties when one has a wonderful stay in a very elegant hotel right in the middle of the city. My child was thrilled to sight doves, pigeons, hens, and a peacock in the garden. For cityslickers like us, it was indeed a wonderful experience.
