Rajasthan! Even the name of this state has a wonderful magical sound! It's a state filled with fabulous palaces and forts which all look like giant fairy tale sets! There are people wearing fabulous turbans and saris of dazzling colors on the women totally knock me out. If anything, it’s the colors that stick out over and over again. Some of …

April 29th 15th installment-second day in Jaipur. Breakfast was good, but not as good as yesterday. Today, instead of the peace and tranquility that we had enjoyed the day before, we are entertained by a large tour group from Spain--all talking at the same time. It was just as well because we wanted to get an early start on the day. In front of …
April 28th 14th installment. Jaipur We ate a good breakfast on the outdoor patio facing the large courtyard. In the pavilion about 50 feet away, two musicians played the sitar and tabla. The ambiance was great, the buffet breakfast tasty, but the music really completed the picture. They played classical Indian music intermixed with renditions of El …
April 27th 13th installment. Road to Jaipur We take off for Jaipur around 9 pm. We managed to take a few things from the buffet breakfast to eat later on the road. Rampal stocked up with bottled water and ice in Agra and we happily left town. I say this only because the town of Agra is, well......pitiful. It is the home of the Taj Mahal and the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Jai Mahal Palace Jaipur
We stayed at this hotel in January 2006 - the last stop after a 12 day trip of India. I am so glad I read an earlier review on this site - we booked a luxury room and it was fabulous. By this stage we were a bit India-ed out and were in need of room service, tv and TLC. The food was great, the reception when we arrived was warm and unintrusive, our room was comfortable and well equipped, with plasma TV and gorgeous decor. The next morning we went down for breakfast only to find that champagne (Indian and delicious) is served complimentary. A really nice touch. We were serenaded at breakfast and at lunch by a Rajasthani musician with bells on his feet and when we showed the video to friends they were completely bewitched by it all, as were we. The grounds are stunning, it is immaculately clean and completely serene, in a noisy, bustling city. Am so glad I read the reviews here first, it was a very special experience.
The Jai Palace is absolutely beautiful- big grounds, pretty building- but it also has maddening service.
The Taj Jai Mahal hotel is set on expansive grounds, befitting the palace that it once was. Management has now converted this establishment into a fine hotel. We stayed for two nights in a "luxury suite", although the room was rather standard. Bedroom, with a narrow passageway to the bathroom. The staff at the front desk were helpful and pleasant.
What a beautiful palace
We stayed 2 nights and we loved it.
Having a so bad experience with the Surya in Dehli, this hotel gave us the best of India welcoming.
Excellent service, restaurant, room.
We warmly recommend this hotel.
The Jai Mahal Palace was beautiful. It is definitely a luxury hotel and the rooms are just stunning. We had two rooms and both rooms were furnished in true "maharaja" fashion with traditional Indian and Rajasthani furniture. The hotel lawn and landscaping is just beautiful. We loved walking around in the garden. The only negative to this hotel was the food. Cinnamon (the fine dining restaurant) was very mediocre and the breakfast buffet, while plentiful, was not of high quality. The lunch food was also only mediocre for the price paid. I would save your money here and go to some of the great restaurants in Jaipur. Indiana (about two blocks off of M.I. Road) served some of the best Indian food that we had on our trip and the Four Seasons was also very good. However, I strongly recommend staying away from Niros -- this place is highly recommended by Frommer's and was packed with tourists but their food was terrible (bland, salty, and generally unappetizing) and they didn't have air conditioning running.
Brilliance Par Excellance
The hotel has seen a major change since I'd been there last . The environment and people only keep improving. The outlets are superb , Cinnamon which is a fine dining Indian , the Marigold Bar and the Italian. Staff are friendly and pleasing . Overall Great Stuff. The bon-fire evenings by the pool with wine service is a treat. Highly recommended . The color of the rooms are charming
Absolutely wonderful! For india, it is definately 5 star although the rooms need a little upgrade. The service was impeccable. The breakfast buffet was tasty and filling as was the suberb Italian restaurant on the grounds. I would definately stay here again.
Have just returned and have to say this hotel is wonderful. I stayed in a "luxury" room which looked absolutlely new. Gorgeous decor, bathroom and even a plasma tv.
I would like to update you all on the current status of the Jai Mahal Palace. All the renovation for this season is over and boy, has it changed the face or what !
