Beautiful property with spacious rooms and bathrooms but service can be much better. Few points to keep in mind for realistic expectations from the place and people
1. Must pack your own towels and toiletries. Provided towels are old, not properly washed and no toiletries in the washroom.
2. Pack your mosquito repellent cream/gel.
3. Shower curtains are loaded with fugus(in May/peak summer). Am sure as a guest one can't do much about it..action point for the host.
4. Insufficient breakfast, must order extra in advance (extra is changeable).
5. Homely touch is completely missing, place is managed by staff.
My reason for choosing the place was Col. Sinha's Army background and so was the reason for my expectations from the services, maintenance of the place and staff. Which was highly disappointing
If you want a simple, no-frills place to stay in, I highly recommend this homestay. The rooms are clean and the staff helpful. Most importantly, Col. Sinha was super accommodating of the constant changes in our plans w.r.t the duration of our stay. Absolutely no fuss.
Loved being here and hope to be back.
We were very happy staying at the Colonel's home. He was away with his wife overseas, so we weren't able to meet him. There was fantastic communication prior to us arriving though. His supervisor Rahul was of great help. While it is a bit away from the tourist spots, we enjoyed the quiet. We hired a daily tuk tuk driver and that seemed to keep the cost down as well. Everything at the home was clean and tidy. Food can be organized as well as laundry and that was much appreciated. The dogs and birds on the property were lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay in Jaipur.
Col. Sinha was extremely helpful, understanding and kind throughout as was his wife. The house was exactly as described and the room was spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very accommodating but, unfortunately for me, they spoke no English or virtually none, which made it awkward at times, although there was always another guest or the Sinhas to help. My only reservation about this listing is its location in Vaishali Nagar, which is 10 to 20 km from the centre of Jaipur, at least half an hour and 150 to 200 rupees by autorickshaw. Especially if they do not speak Hindi, some guests may find going back and forth difficult. But once arrived at the house, they will find it an island of calm and comfort.
The actual home is better than what they show in photographs. Lovely neighborhood and a very clean and neat room. Everything about this place is good. The host - a couple are very friendly and because they are experienced, they quickly figure what would interest you and suggest places to go.
You will find true professionalism here.
We had the privilege to stay 2 nights at Colonel Homestead – a wonderful house with beautiful rooms – an oasis with all the flowers and the quiet location. Even Colonel Rajesh and his wife themselves had just returned from their holidays the same day, they took time to welcome us and spent time with us. We very much enjoyed the talks during breakfast and dinner times - a highlight! They are so warm, open, friendly, generous, caring people and made us feel like home. If I ever will visit Jaipur again, I would be glad to stay with them again. Thank you Rajesh and Vijaya!!! Hope to see you one day in Germany!
We stayed for 3 nights at Colonel Homestead and really enjoyed our stay. Colonel Rajesh and his wife are simply brilliant hosts. They know how to look after guests and make them feel welcome. They are both incredibly engaging and great to talk to. The Homestead is serviced by a group of service staff who cater for your every need. Transport and entry to attractions can all be arranged through the hosts. All pictures are accurate and I would highly recommend this B&B.
