Looking for accommodation in Jaipur?
Since Jaipur is a popular business city, cheap budget hotels are the majority of accommodation.
To find a cheap hotel in Jaipur, I suggest you head for the area around:
Nicer low budget hotels in Jaipur can be found in Bani Park - a quiet area, only a few minutes from the bus station and the railway station.
These are the guesthouses and hotels I've tried in Jaipur!
Price per night: Rs 300
If you want to meet other backpackers, Evergreen is the place to go in Jaipur! Chill out in their courtyard, or grab some fantastic Indian food at their restaurant.
But you'll notice that the place is pretty rundown. The best rooms are on the first floor. So, check out several rooms before you decide to check in!
Where: Near Chameliwala Market and MI Rd
Price per night: from Rs 700
Finding a clean room in India at affordable prices is HARD.
But Atithi guesthouse is in fact known for its cleanliness. We even noticed that they changed the bed sheets and towels every day. That was, well unusual to us (especially after we stayed in Mumbai).
We enjoyed relaxing on their roof terrace and tasted their delicious vegetarian food (limited food menu though). They also serve Western food.
You also want to make sure your booking is valid.
Because when we were in Palolem, we were told about the negative service (which we didn't experience).
We met a few backpackers from Canada who told us that they booked a room in advance (via e-mail). The staff at Atithi confirmed their booking. But when they got there, the reservation was cancelled !
They had a wild discussion with the staff for 2 hours, and they even showed them the e-mail confirmation. The staff refused to have confirmed their booking.
After a while, they got a room, but at a more expensive price. The Canadian backpackers got pretty pissed about it, but they stayed because they admit that the place was good-value (apart from the service of course).
So, confirm the booking twice. Call them if you have to. And get the name of the person you've talked to.
Jaipur accommodation: At the rooftop of Hotel Pearl Palace
Price per night: Rs 350-1500
I read excellent reviews of Pearl Palace before I got to Jaipur, and I want to contribute to their well-deserved reputation!
Large, clean rooms and a comfy bed! Backpackers can't ask for more!
We tried their Indian food at the roof-top restaurant, and waited a long time for the food.
Well, we forgot about the waiting because their food was remarkable.
While waiting, just relax and enjoy the view of Jaipur!
If you're interested in staying here, you should book in advance. You have no idea of how quickly this place fills up!
Updated on June 09, 2011: We visited Pearl Palace again in March 2011. They have kept their standard. Clean room and good service. For a family room (6 people), we paid in total Rs 1400 per night. On the other hand, they haven't exactly become more efficient in serving food at their restaurant. Still slow service, and food was OK (I only ate Western food).
Jaipur accommodation: Family room at Pearl Palace and bathroom
Where: Hari Kishan Somani Marg, Hathroi Fort
Our room at Krishna Palace
Price per night: Rs 650-1500
Krishna Palace really looks like a palace!
The first thing you're going to notice is their beautiful garden, where you can just relax.
The guest rooms are upstairs. Our room was enormous, neat and clean. You get what you paid for, in addition to TV, fan and air-con which are included in the price.
The best part was the soft bed, and I slept like a baby.
Same standard applies for the attached bathroom - a clean facility with Western toilet and hot shower. You can clearly see that they maintain a high standard.
We were 6 people, so we occupied three rooms. All of the rooms were almost the same size, same architecture and same facilities.
Jaipur accommodation: Krishna Palace - Jaipur hotels near railway station
They were kind enough to reserve the rooms until late. The manager and his wife were helpful.
Location is another good score. It's located in Bani Park - the more up-scale and quiet area of the city, and it's only a couple of minutes (by auto) from MI Road.
The restaurant they have upstairs is a small drawback. The food was OK, but nothing I would remember in particular. But it's not the end of the world. You can just take an auto to downtown and grab a bite there.
Where: E-26 Durga Marg, Bani Park, Jaipur.
Jaipur accommodation - Clean and nice rooms at Hotel Aashish
- image credit: hotelashish.com
Price per night: Rs 1250-3500
If you're tired of sleeping among cockroaches and can afford a more luxurious option, try Hotel Aashish!
Air-con, attached bathroom, TV, hot water and excellent location. We got what we paid for. The restaurant downstairs was OK. There was not much food to choose from!
Since this hotel is centrally located you can just walk to the nearby restaurants :-)
To us, it was clear that this hotel targeted business people.
Address: Hathroi School, Ajmer Road, Jaipur.
