Built in 1860 by a wealthy noble family, this rather stately haveli, or mansion, has been enlarged by successive generations. All of its seventy rooms are unique and have an appealing heritage feel, with period furniture, ‘ethnic’ décor, arched windows and coloured glass.

It’s comfortable and atmospheric rather than flashy and opulent, and offers excellent value for money with the bonus of a spacious and tranquil garden.

Since 2006 Diggi has hosted the annual Jaipur Literary Festival, drawing A-list writers and literati from across the world.

Surrounding area

Close to the Albert Hall Museum, Diggi stands in a fairly quiet enclave of residential streets and lanes a little south of central Jaipur’s key attractions and markets.

A cluster of rickshaw drivers wait permanently just outside the gates, while the busy Sawai Ram Singh Road runs past the end of the lane.
