Jaipur Hotel

There are loads of beautiful hotels in Jaipur. I’ll do a post on a heritage hotel later… but first I want to show you the Holiday Inn Jaipur – not only because we stayed there… but for the following reasons -
The courtyard was beyond impressive!! I have a soft corner for courtyards and this totally took my heart away -
The view from the top -

This was always filled with flowers -

This is the wall at the entrance of the hotel… I heart this wall… its beautiful…

A closer look… I’m going to do this (below) on a small wall in my home for sure.
