Old World Charm
What a great place for your base in Jaipur. The Dera Mandawa is ideally situated close to the centre of Jaipur and within walking distance of the historic centre. But as soon as you step inside and into the enclosed courtyard you feel at home and secure from the hectic surroundings. Its twelve suites are set around the peaceful courtyard which is planted with trees and exotic plants and the sounds of the burbling water and birds. It is here that you can take breakfast and dinner, watch the entertainments or have a quiet drink and a chat. The suites are very characterful, large, clean and have all that you need for a comfortable stay. However, the hotels best asset are the hosts, Mr and Mrs Durga Singh. It is their home and they make you feel part of it, from the initial welcome, hosting meals and the evening entertainments. Mr Singh is always available to provide information and advice, helping you to get the best from your stay in Jaipur. Indeed, all the staff at Dera Mandawa are helpful, professional and charming. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, it was the highlight in Jaipur.
Local Jaipur charm.
We went for a cooking experience and were not disappointed. Durga Singh and his charming wife were the most delightful and informative hosts and we ate what we had prepared. They have turned their home into what looked like a beautiful boutique hotel nestled in old world charm. We did not stay there but wished we had. A good reason to return.
utterly charming 9/10
This really felt like being a guest in a private house, just individuals no groups, with the host Durga Singh patrician to a T, marvellous reception with (his aristocratic wife) the ambience service and staff beyond reproach. A limited number of rooms around a courtyard (12 only I think) Breakfast and dinner well prepared and served and reasonable Well placed just outside the city walls near the market One caveat was the "cookery course" which was fun but wildly over-priced (or our charge), negotiate with caution

This is a gem of a place to stay, an oasis of calm and beauty just off a main street. Mr Singh and his wonderful staff do everything to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Puppets, cooking demonstration and bed-tea make this a very special place. Thank you from the Norris Family!
We arrived in the dark on a wet evening and were warmly greeted by Mr Singh and his staff. He offered us a drink whilst we completed the check-in procedure. The Dera Mandawa is a beautiful hotel set around a peaceful courtyard. Our room was incredibly spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We ate at the hotel on both evenings and the food was good. You are woken each morning with a tray of tea delivered to your door which is a lovely touch. I would highly recommend the Dera Mandawa; it is centrally located but once you are in the door you are in a haven of peace.
