On a self drive trip I was reluctant to tackle Jaipur traffic late in the afternoon so was looking for a hotel on the outskirts of the city when the Chandra Mahal loomed up in the distance. The hotel was a generous distance from the highway so I was looking forward to a good night’s sleep, what I didn’t notice however until too late was the hotel backed on to another busy road with trucks roaring past the bathroom window all night long, so close you could hear what music the driver was listening to.
The cheaper ground floor rooms are very basic with no hot water or TV but I suspect the hotel caters mostly to the wedding crowd as the grounds are expansive, well maintained and strewn with marriage pavilions and tent structures. Fortunately there wasn’t a marriage the night I stayed. The restaurant had no western option which isn’t unusual for Indian Hotels outside main cities but the breakfast I had on the lawn next morning was so good I had it twice.
I ordered butter toast and coffee knowing already after many years visiting India, Indians just don’t ‘get’ toast, but hope springs eternal. The thin, sweet bread is usually either burnt to a crisp or has just been waved across a candle flame and the butter is chipped off a glacial slab from the back of the freezer with a hammer and chisel. Imagine my surprise to be served two slices of perfectly toasted bread with the butter (not ghee) already melted into the golden brown slices. Sleep quality zip, toast quality 10.
A barely adequate overnighter for Rupee 900 ($19 AUD) so long as you can dodge a marriage party and somehow block out the incessant night traffic.... More
