“Beautifully maintained small guest house that offers a personal touch too”
Reviewed 4 January 2011

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.

A quiet place to stay with decent facilities. The staff and owners were cordial. The cook (who also seemed to be one man army :) was great at his work. We enjoyed the feel of home-cooked food away from home. The only point that bothered us was about the rooms. We felt that the rooms could have been equipped much better. They were pretty distant from the standard definition of "Super" Deluxe rooms (we had booked). Things you would normally expect in any room with the same price weren't there - minimal toiletries (a single travel soap and one towel, missing dustbin), no carpet or foot mats (in winters you typically expect warmth or cozy rooms), single towel in a double bedroom.

But all-in-all it was a good stay.

When I first made a reservation, I did it based on Fiona Caulfield's recommendation. I did not hope much - maybe aging royalty making a little extra money.
But when we arrived at the place, the impeccably clean rooms took us by surprise. It only added to the impression we had when the owner came by to the railway station at 2 am to pick us up. Thank you Col. Singh.

Increasingly I will use Jaipur as a base rather than Delhi and am always looking at different areas of Jaipur for quiet accommodation near to the facilities I use. Shahar Palace is away from the noise and bustle of Jaipur, a lovely leafy suburb in Civil Lines.
Lovely garden, gracious hosts and a willing staff.

The hotel sits in a nice secure surrounding of lush greenery. Locating it on your own in the dead of night could be difficult. Rooms are average. More like home stay, don't expect professional butler service. Requested airport transport did not come. Rooms with higher rent (Rs 1425/-) was provided against the confirmed standard rent room (Rs 925/-). Food is avearage and expensive for the standard.

Good value with a free pick up from the station. Wonderfully quiet and green for India, this is a lovely oasis of calm and I would stay here again if I find myself in Jaipur in the future.

A Guest house of this calibre rarely reaches the letting market and a viewing/staying really is necessary to fully appreciate the character, peacefulness and harmony of this wonderful property. Ideally located from main line railway station and town centre both only a ten minute away by tuk-tuk.It is very much a haven, offering all the comfort one would expect in a home.lovely rooms overlooks the well stocked garden.All of the staff are delightful and extremely helpful.The food is excellent.We can now understand the comments made by other guests in their reviews, and we too will returning in future years to enjoy more.I recommend this hotel for an amazing honeymoon, A romantic getaway, older travelers, families with young children, families with teenagers, tourists.
