We originally tried to book Pearl Palace Heritage but as it was full were offered a family room here instead, and we were not disappointed! Bit of a squeeze with 5 of us in one room (2 in a small double and 3 in a kingsize) but was fine for 2 nights. Clean, comfortable and full of character, with a buzzy atmosphere and helpful, friendly staff. Plenty of hot water for showers. Really appreciated the free pick-up from the train station too! We had one breakfast and one dinner in the Peacock rooftop restaurant - lovely atmosphere, especially at night and an extensive international menu with loads of veggie options. Much as we all love Indian food, our youngest two children couldn't resist the pasta and pizza, both of which went down very well, and the rest of us enjoyed a selection of Indian dishes, all delicious. One thing worth mentioning - there's nothing else really within walking distance apart from a few other hotels and rooftop restaurants, but there are auto rickshaws and taxis waiting outside at all times (check with reception to get an idea of how much to pay to wherever you want to go). Salim (who picked us up from the station) speaks good English and helped us to arrange a half-day trip to Amber Fort and a few other places with Lucky, who was great - and even got our youngest (aged 7) to sit up front and steer for part of the journey! Pearl Palace don't officially recommend or endorse any of the drivers, so you need to make your own arrangements directly with them. We really enjoyed our stay here and thought it was amazing value for money. Pearl Palace will definitely be our first choice if we ever visit Jaipur again.
We called the hotel during the night time few hours before we arrive in Jaipur railway station. They quickly arranged complimentary pick up form there.
They send Salim Khan, and became my best buddy.
He has a vintage car that looks old from the outside. But when you go in, its beautifully decorated of peacock feathers, lights and nice Indian music. What a promising Indian welcome.
He brought us in the hotel and since he made us feel comfortable, we hired him as our guide for the next day.
Hotel pearl palace is small but rooms are like in bollywood movies. The receptionist was very welcoming and ensure all our needs are provided.
India has a different power plug that what I have and since they do not have extension or adapter similar from mine, the reception lend me his persona charger. Thats so much extra mile since the following morning, he was still in the lobby with his phone uncharged.
For those people who is reading this. Trust me you will not ever regret. India is such a huge country and you need to be extra careful when trusting people and i did not regret staying here, and look for Salim.
Speaking of which, Salim brought us in major attractions in Jaipur and mixed with the locals. He also shared his love of his life and stories of which we really feel connected to him.
To the management of Pearl Palace Hotel, may you continue your way of hospitality and i believe in the future you will be number 1 hotel not only in Jaipur, but in entire India.
To Salim, we do not know if we could still come back in India but please keep in touch. We will never forget our adventure for the rest of our lives.
We left this place and with a heavy heart because we will miss this good people we have met in a country where trusting other people is difficult and for the hospitality that is beyond our expectations they provided.
After each busy day bombarded with sights and sounds and encounters of all sorts, this was a wonderful, soothing place to come back to and relax. Rooms are very clean and pleasant, and the staff is exceptionally helpful.
The rooftop restaurant is a sanctuary within a sanctuary... amazing views, particularly in at dusk and dawn.... and the food is quite good as well.
The hotel is very attractive, on a peaceful side street just off several busy arteries that can carry you you wherever you need to go, and there is never a shortage of inexpensive drivers standing by to get you there.
This was an excellent place to stay, and I feel fortunate we found it easily in the venerable Lonely Planet Guide, and gave it a try.
Stayed here three nights and two days. Expertly cleaned with wonderful decorations and paintings on the walls. Conveniently located with a rooftop restaurant that serves both fantastic Indian food (says the Indian friend I was traveling with - foods cooked in the tandoor were particularly good). During our stay there dinners were accompanied with live, traditional qawwali music.
This hotel is owned by the same family who owns the Pearl Palace Heritage Hotel located a short distance away. Both are fantastic stays.
A very good place to stay with a breathtaking rooftop ambiance and a very palatable indian cuisines. The rooms are very Indian inspired theme. They Recommended us a very very good tour guide. Salim is the best tour guide you could ever have
