Fodor's Expert Review Raj Mahal Palace Hotel
Sardar Patel Marg, C-Scheme, Civil Lines, Jaipur, Rajasthan, 302001, India
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
If you want a central location and don't mind sacrificing quality for the sake of staying in a real palace run by the local royal family, this is just the place. Built in 1729 by Sawai Jai Singh II, the small palace has a pleasant but world-weary, run-down air, but offers extremely spacious, if modest, rooms with high ceilings and few windows. It stands amid large lawns that are perfect for evening strolls.
- moderately priced considering room size and character
- nice neighborhood
- rooms vary a lot—inspect several before choosing
- noise from nearby train station can disturb at night
- service is slow and staff not very proactive
