Rating: Modest    

Barwara Kothi overview

Barwara Kothi is a colonial villa dating back to the early 20th century. Inspired by Lutyens Delhi it has a distinct Raj feel to it and is spread over 2000 square yards.

The 'kothi', which is a mansion house, was the residence in Jaipur of the Barwara Royal Family. The kothi was constructed by Raja Man Singh of Barwara, a World War II veteran and an accomplished polo player who was a close confidante and cousin of the late Maharaja of Jaipur, Man Singhji. The kothi evokes the serenity and nostalgia of the Raj with rooms furnished with traditional furniture, antiques and photographs reminiscent of life back then. Guest rooms also feature modern touches like air conditioning, Wi-Fi and en-suite bathrooms.

Alex Burgess, Tribes

"The Singh family will make you feel at home at Barwara Kothi.  Their comfortable home is within a reasonable driving distance of the old city and the rooms are comfortable and spacious.  There is plenty of room to relax and a well kept garden to enjoy."

Isabel Lledo

Paul Doe
"A nice homestay with good stores next door"
Mrs Karen Griffiths
"This "homestay", as our hosts were keen to call it, was comfortable and friendly and we had a lovely room. Breakfast was good and dinner, although there was limited choice, was nicely prepared and tasty. Conveniently located across the road there was a coffee shop and a restaurant with a good menu, and we went there a couple of times."
