This lovely haveli is arranged around a courtyard which offers a peaceful place to sit between visiting this fascinating city. Rooms are amazing, we've never stayed in a two storey room before. The staff are so kind and are genuinely interested in you and want you to learn about India and Jaipur. It didn't feel like a hotel, more like...

Everyone staying here that I spoke to liked it. However, it's not for me. Some agreed with me that the food on the night we ate there wasn't good. We stayed two nights and the traffic noise didn't stop on Saturday night into Sunday morning. If you like family run, and a little quirky, you'll enjoy it. I understand that...

A quiet courtyard and eleven beautiful rooms located in bustling industrial area next to the west wall of the Pink City. Every check-in meets the one of the owners (either the father, the mother or the daughter) in their former living room. Delicious meals are cooked on-site. Very clean and friendly place for more adventurous travelers who don't want to...

My husband, son and I were fortunate to have landed ourselves in Jaipur for the annual kite festival or Makar Sakranti. Our fortune was increased by our stay at the charming Dera Mandawa in a spacious and comfortable room with Indian decor fabulously echoing another era. The staff were amazingly attentive, several even helping us to fly kites from the...

We arrived at Dera Mandawa late in the evening and were greeted with a wonderful thali dinner, and had the pleasure of dining with the owner, who regaled us with stories about his family and the hotel property. The courtyard allows guests the opportunity to meet other travelers, and there's a very exciting puppet show in the courtyard each evening....

We had the pleasure of staying here for four nights and would have loved to stay longer. The location is good for popping into the pink city. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are so willing to help. The food and wine is good. Negative comments - none!

What a fantastic hotel, the two storey bedroom, which we reached by a little path through the garden, was straight out of Arabian Nights; the courtyard restaurant was delightful and served delectable meals; the staff and owner were charming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Jaipur

The owner and staff are so welcoming and attentive. The food is fabulous and the actual building with its balcony overlooking the courtyard is memorable. The owner is so proud of his hotel and welcomes you with tales of his family and his country. My husband was suffering from Delhi belly when we arrived but they were so kind and...

This was our first visit to India. We were captivated by the charm of the Dera Mandawa from the host and owner and the staff. The rooms were beautifully furnished with lots of local colour. We would also like to recommend the vegetarian Thali for dinner. We had intensive days of sightseeing so were glad to relax 'at home' in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A lesser-known fact about Rajasthani monuments is that rarely were forts, palaces and havelis (large residences) constructed at one go. Each generation added new wings, rooms and arches in an architectural style prevalent during its time. DeraMandawa has also seen such an evolution, as the Mandawa family constantly kept extending the residence over the years. Thakur Durga Singh, the current custodian of DeraMandawa is a keen observer of history, culture, religion, current affairs, and is a bank of knowledge so vast that he has a point of view on anything under the sun. He is what one could call a modern traditionalist, actively seeking the use of modern technology and methods to support the principles of traditional living. The inquisitive can have endless conversations with him on a number of his projects like rain -water harvesting, biogas plant, solar heating and, even, healthy cooking. He would be more than delighted to share his experiences with you. ... more   less
