    I have stayed in this hotel around 10 times in the past years and I can say that the srvice is always good, staff is helpful, and the place is really pretty and original. Breakfast is always good, few items but all of good quality and like the vegetarian approach! ;) The only thing that was bad this time was that the rooms in the groundfloor are noisy :( (the Tagore more than the Jaipur) it seems to be some kind of water pump and its really loud. Is the first time I stayed in those rooms, all the others are lovely, clean & quiet.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Original Raj Hotel. The location is perfect. From the airport, it is possible to arrive with the bus. The bus stop is very near to the hotel. The bus connections to the centre are very good.
    We liked the design of the rooms. The rooms are very comfortable, large and clean. Breakfast is ok. We got all information we wanted at the reception. People are very friendly and helpful.
    We surely would come again to this hotel and would recommend it to others.
