Jobner Bagh, Jaipur
47 Jobner Bagh is a luxury Guest House situated in the center of Jaipur just beyond the walled city. This home away from home, is a perfect blend of traditional beauty and modern comfort in a simple setting at a highly affordable price point. The owner Shiva Gujar has been in the jewelry business for many years and has created this charming 12 bedroom guest house for friends and visitors alike.
The interiors have been elegantly styled with whitewashed jail walls, sunlit interiors and well loved antiques. Bedrooms have antique tables, colonial style chairs and antique doors as headboards. All the bathrooms all have a Moroccan feel with tadelakt plastered walls and floors.
Communal areas come alive with beautifully handcrafted large pots, candles, old photographs and lots of intimate seating areas, which gives the hotel a very relaxed feel. While the splendid roof terrace offers views of the 18th Century Nahargarh Fort. Despite its bijou size there is a small spa offering both aromatherapy and Ayurvedic massages.
This is a home away from home where the family embrace you as one of their own. Anita Shiva’ wife is on hand creating authentic home cooked Indian dishes, which can be taken in the elegant dining room or out in the garden. The delightful staff ensure that you are fed and watered throughout the day with sugared chai, lemon water and hearty snacks. There is even a tiny boutique selling local textiles and handicrafts run by the daughter.
With so much to do and see in the evocative city of Jaipur, we would suggest a two to three night stay and as such 47 Jobner Bagh provides excellent value, location and service.
Jaipur forms part of the Golden Triangle with Delhi and Agra. Jaipur is often at the heart of any Rajasthan itinerary and offers excellent flight connectivity with the rest of the country.
