The Raas hotel was our seventh stop of our Rajasthan journey for 3 nights. it's been under my radar for many years, so I was looking forward to finally staying and experiencing the unique boutique hotel. Of course the noise was a concern, as it is the most talked about problem when reading the Tripadvisor reviews, but I'll get back to that later. It didn't start well, unfortunately. My partner was sick for the first two days and had to stay in the room without even being able to go out to the restaurant. (to be clear, the stomach sickness had nothing to do with the Raas hotel restaurants). As we stayed in early January, the room rate was on the high side of the spectrum. So with higher prices, obviously comes higher expectations. The experience of checking in and turning that corner where the Court yard, restaurant and Fort reveal themselves was quite an exceptional moment. In fact, I never got tired of looking at that view. We had a luxury room on the third floor, so we also had that magnificent view. The room was beautiful with a modern design. Loved the furniture and the bathroom with an amazing shower and fluffy towels. The Raas hotel also use Kama bath products that we loved. I also do suspect that they fill up the small bath samples so I'm not sure if I'm a fan of that. There was also a TV and decent WIFI. Before I go on, I wanted to mention the hotel staff. the hotel has done an amazing job at training and finding the right employees. They were so kind, helpful, friendly and ready to help. I only have positive things to say, so thank you again. About the food at the restaurant. We mostly ate Western food as we had had only Indian food for over two weeks. So it was nice to have that option between the two. I'd say that the food was good but not great, so there may be room for improvement there. Breakfast was pretty good though. As I mentioned that we had higher expectation because of the price, I'd like to talk about a few things where I think the hotel fell short. We loved the luxury room and its design but I was a bit surprised at the size of the actual room. I really imagined it bigger. We had to stay inside a bit more time that we would have liked so we did notice that it felt a bit tight. The other disappointment was the balcony. Even though, we had this amazing view, the wall was at least 5 feet tall, so we had to be on your tip toes to look outside, and when you are sitting on the outdoor chairs, you are basically staring at the wall in front of you. I understand that if you can see out, people can see in but I think that the wall is just too high. Another small thing was the couch in the room. It was ok but could have been more comfortable. the cushions would easily slide. Now for the biggest problem, I'm not sure that the hotel can do anything about it. The hotel is smacked in the middle of the city and a lot of the rooms are right on the edge of the property, really close to the neighbors. The mosque can be a problem (as it has been stated so many times). I was personally ok with the two minute prayers but it becomes a problem when it lasts over an hour. The problem is that it's not only the mosque. It can be very loud with every day city noises : traffic, horns, music, etc... Some people are able to block it out and some people are more sensitive to noise, so it can be a problem. We were psychologically prepared for it by reading reviews but still it was difficult at times. (And no, I can't put anything in my ears at night). In conclusion, I'd like to say that we loved our experience at the Raas hotel. However, I have to say that I believe that it is overpriced because it can never offer peace and quiet + the room size. Hope you take my feedback with a positive mind.
