TravelPod Member ReviewsOm Tower Jaipur
We had a comfortable stay at this hotel. It is very well maintained, modern and centrally located. Staff is very professional and very nice place to stay at. It dining place is a revolving restaurant serving Indian and continental food. Food was excellent with live music. A nice experience to watch the pink city from modest heights. would love to visit again.

... to Jaipur.
One other thing we wanted to do for old times sake was visit a bar in Om Tower that we went to last time and had some nice cocktails and nibbles. So we jumped into a tuk tuk and off we went to Om tower. The bar is situated on the 9th floor of a tower that Lonely Planet describes it as looking like a piece of space junk, the bar was themed on the Wild West and although it was a little quirky we had a good time when we first went there. The first ...
... which was fine by us. However there were some that tried to kiss me on the cheek and we had to separate ourselves and say no that it wasn't ok. In America it honestly wouldn't be a big deal but in India holding hands is taboo. Luckily the four of us were really good about handling anything. If any of us got uncomfortable and any time we all walked away and got some fresh air and then returned. We definitely have each other's back. And it was never extremely uncomfortable ...
