              Best Boutique Hotel in Rajasthan”

              great ambience, brilliant food, hospitality, service, experience, relaxing

              Alsisar Haveli is a fantastic boutique hotel nestled in the old city of Jaipur. I travelled with my friend for a weekend in August and we were completely charmed by the quaint haveli. Perhaps it is one of the places where everything comes together – great service, brilliant hospitality and an ambience that is unmatchable. Being a vegetarian, food is always a tricky part for me. However, the Paneer Butter Masala was so delicious that I over-ate. It was a similar story with my friend who munched on Rajasthani chicken. One must also try Laal Maas and Jangali Maas of Alsisar Haveli. Kudos to Amar Singh ji for an amazing dining experience. Our room (no. 216) was big and beautifully furnished. It had windows on either side of the room and was simply beautiful. The hotel staff is very courteous. They kept us pampered by asking at regular intervals if anything is required. The ambience of Alsisar Haveli is unparallel. For all the time we were there, we didn’t step outside the hotel at all. Everything was provided to us in the hotel. It was a great way to unwind and relax. And at the same time experience true Rajput hospitality. Thank you Alsisar Haveli for one of the best holidays.

              a wonderful hotel”

              We arrived at the Haveli early in the morning and Narendra the receptionist was so so kind to let us check in early, which was great for my mother who needed some rest after a night train ride. Unfortunately i could not have a meet with Narendra to thank him in person. Alsisar Haveli is a big bang for your buck. It is not so expensive compared to other 5 star heritage hotels but it also provides the luxury and amenities not far from those. We enjoyed the large courtyard the architecture and the view of the pools. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Hot water is powerful and consistent. Our room was right at the ground floor which was great as my 66 years old mother is not fond of steps. The room was also clean and very well equipped. The hotel is also close to a lot of attractions in Jaipur. I would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone.

              Enchanting Heritage Hotel!”

              The reviews can only capture part of the magic when you turn into the small driveway from a busy Jaipur street, and then enter the doorway of this special heritage hotel. A former villa, this special place has rooms with canopy beds, colonial furniture, Courtyards (many of them), a great dining room with a magnificent chandelier and paintings of the Jaipur maharajas, swimming pool, mysterious flute playing, ancient puppet shows and then some. I think pretty much all guests knows we’ve stumbled on a very unique place. That’s not to say it’s perfect! Dinner is primarily the terrific buffet, but we wanted something lighter, so ordered a la carte. Mistake! It took way to long for it to be prepared. We learned our lesson the next night by ordering a la carte but choosing a dish on the buffet. Much smarter! Our room, though beautiful, did have a musty smell, but we overlooked it as we were happy to be there! Breakfast was great as were the dinners. Go! Be enchanted too!

              A charming heritage hotel but be prepared to pay for higher than average food bills”

              My husband and I stayed two nights at Alsisar Haveli during our 2 weeks tour in India. We were charmed by the decoration and the style of the haveli the moment we walked in. The room was nice, it is old fashion and not the most modern but we felt very comfortable in an old classic clean room. The TV is basic with Indian channel only but we weren't into watching TV anyway. It was December so we didn't need to use the air conditioner. Apart from the beautiful living room/ lounge, there are lots of nice attention to details such as the puppet show (very funny) and the pungi player (if I haven't mistaken). The pool area looked beautiful and well maintained although it was a bit cold so we never used it. The restaurant is another amazing room in the hotel and must be experienced. Breakfast was not included to the price of the room. We ended up having 2 evening meals (one night buffet and one night a la carte) and 2 breakfast at the hotel and the total came to £80. The bills were higher than expected due to taxes and service charge added to evening meals. For example: One Evening buffet for 2 (with 2 soft drinks) came to INR1900 + INR190 Service Charge + INR376 Taxes - Total INR2466. One Buffet breakfast for 2 came to INR1200 + INR216 Tax - Total 1416. The evening meals were nice. However, buffet breakfast was below average compared to all the places we stayed during our two weeks travel. I would have liked an omelette, toasts and a cup of tea but there was no a la carte option. The staff were efficient but not the warmest. A few times the staff only greeted my husband but ignored me. All in all, a wonderful stay at this unique heritage hotel due to it's wonderful décor and charm layout.

              On approaching the Alsisar Haveli Hotel, one enters from a dirty dusty squalid street. But a fabulous surprise awaits on passing the gate and entering the courtyard. The staff is waiting to greet the guest(s) and the guest is lead across a beautifully landscaped garden, past the dining room on the left and the swimming pool on the right, to the tastefully decorated guest rooms. Everything has been perfectly restored, and the rooms and the public areas are immaculately clean.

              Beautiful hotel and very good value”

              We loved Alsisar Haveli. The rooms did vary so we asked to see a few different ones and struck gold 4th time lucky - huge room with painted ceiling, stained glass windows, chandeliers, 4 poster bed - simply stunning. It felt very special and authentic. The breakfast was excellent too - waffles and omelettes cooked to order, along with English breakfast tea (I don't like sweet chai so this was great) and several Indian options which were nice to try. The waiting staff were very friendly and looked extremely smart in their turbans and tunics. Only two very small criticisms (and I am often hard to please)....the tiling round the edge of the pool is discoloured and could do with being replaced and the reception staff were not nearly as friendly and accommodating as the rest. Other than this, I would HIGHLY recommend this beautiful hotel - in our opinion it beats the much more expensive Samode Haveli and also Nirain Niwas Palace which is similarly priced and similar standard, but not as special.

              We stayed at the Alsisar Haveli for two nights with our two children, aged 5. The hotel was easy to get to and well located. It was quiet and peaceful away from the hustle and bustle of Jaipur. The pool was a nice addition for the kids and the restaurant served reasonable food. The room was a twin room, nicely renovated and enough space for our family. The restaurant staff were very friendly, however, the reception staff were just ok. Overall, a great experience and we would go again.

              This was a beautiful place to spend two nights. Jaipur is a pretty crazy and overwhelming city so it was lovely to step off the street into the tranquility of Alsisar Haveli. Everything was perfect no complaints! Only that the cab driver couldnt find it!

              We enjoyed our 2 night stay in palatial surroundings of the Alissa’s Haveli, Jaipur. After a day of sightseeing the hotel was wonderful to return to, relax, refresh and have dinner. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent with great choices available,at reasonable prices. The swimming pool looked beautiful, but due to the cold weather, we did tot use that facilities. Staff were excellent and we enjoyed our stay there immensely. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone planning to stay in Jaipur.

              A hidden secret in Jaipur”

              Highly recommended, I will not call it a boutique hotel because it´s an Heritage one. Alsisar Haveli was one of the highlights of our vacation in India. Not only the area of Jaipur was one of the more fascinating of our vacation, the hotel was an invitation to not visit given the good standing.

              Unbelievably beautiful hotel with fantastic service”

              If you want to feel like you stepped back in time this is the hotel for you. Turning off of a ramshackle street in old Town Jaipur you instantly return to the time of the Maharaja. The hotel is like a scaled down version of the city palace. The attention to detail in the architecture is beyond description. An large inner courtyard house a pool and spa which because of an overcast sky was too cool to enjoy. A large buffet breakfast and dinner is served in a very large dining room. The food was very good and the waiter service is first rate. This a perfect place to stay in Jaipur

              Good location and a beautiful old heritage hotel.”

              The location is good for a walk into old Jaipur. The staff is friendly and the accomodation is good, breakfast for asian as western very good. Beds are good, bathroom clean, I don't prefer to shower int the bathtop, maybe other rooms have a walk in shower. We had a spacious "de luxe room" with a nice view on the corner of the roof terrace. A con is when guests use a heater or ac, the resonance on the wall could disturb. We loved the music of the flute player on the nice terrace in the mornings and evenings. Value for money, it is not a cheap hotel, but worth the money.

              I was captured by its beautiful architecture and the mood of the hotel. It is the one hotel during my trip that I wanted to splurge on. The hotel staff is incredible nice and helpful. As someone who was traveling alone, I felt extremely comfortable and was treated so kindly. The wait staff at the hotel was one of my favorite parts, they knew I was alone so one of the staff members was very helpful and always greeted me with a smile. He was so helpful and checked in on me whenever I was sitting alone outside at the table. The front desk people were also very helpful when i decided I wanted to get a car service for one of the days I was there. The car service was amazing and they even helped me get a very nice tour guide! Location - its very close to the main area of Jaipur, far enough that it wasnt loud outside of the hotel area. THe hotel is somewhat in a gated community so it felt extremely safe. I usually took a car from the app they use in India.

              The hotel is a beautiful haven of calm from the hustle of the streets of Jaipur. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is good with lots to choose from, largely local dishes. Our room was beautifully decorated in the colonial style and we felt like we had the swimming pool almost to ourselves - it was a perfect relaxing and beautiful place to return to after the excitements of sight-seeing and crazy traffic.

              The best part of this haveli is that after all the day in Jaipur you can relx yourself and find your peacefull spot! The staff is really nice and flexible on the check-out timing. It's a great opportunity to discover a refurbished haveli with traditional decoration, it's like going back in time in the Maraja time!

              A regal sanctuary in the bustling city”

              This is an amazing venue to stay. Value for money, peaceful and you will feel the regal history in this place. We were a small family visiting for the first time. These guys really looked after us. The rooms are quite spacious, clean and tidy and very, very safe. They're beautiful and if you get one on the top floor, its an amazing view of the Nahargadh Fort. At night, the place lights up beautifully. What you see on photos, is exactly what you get. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. They speak good English. If you're a foreigner, you'll be alright. The staff even looked after our luggage for a few hours after we had checked out, since our flight was a bit late. I would go there again, if I ever went back to Jaipur. Chirag & Hannah
