We visited Jaipur on the 4th leg of our tour of India and our first impression of the Royal Orchid was excellent. We received a warm welcome in the modern, airy reception area, check in was efficient and our bags were brought to our compact but bright and sparkly room very quickly. Again the first impression of the room was very favourable but, unfortunately, that quickly changed. Basically the room was designed to look nice but it was sadly impractical in several ways. In the bathroom area there was one sliding door that either closed the toilet or the wardrobe ie they couldn't be open or closed at the same time. The wardrobe space was totally inadequate for two travellers with large suitcases and there was no storage space in the room itself. The shower enclosure was not water tight and the lighting was poor for shaving. Fortunately the bed was comfortable.
There are 2 restaurant options - a relatively expensive Indian fine dining one and another serving both a la carte and buffet meals which is where we ate both nights. We took the buffet which was pleasant but not exceptional; breakfast was also in this restaurant and consisted of an extensive buffet which we enjoyed. There is also a swimming pool on the roof which again looks good at first sight but is spoiled by the number of pigeons drinking water from the edge - pigeon deterrents are badly needed.
This hotel has apparently only been open for 5 months in a new business park on the outskirts of Jaipur; there is already a Marriott there with other hotels opening soon after which I suspect the Royal Orchid will struggle.
