Friendly place located on a quiet street. The room was adequate and the hotel staff and management were very friendly and helpful. Our children were up on the roof flying kites. I am unsure about the location though, we didn't stay in Jaipur long enough to really get a sense of the surroundings but it was not located very close...

This place gives you all you need in jaipur: great location, warm people, good pickup service and good price. We stayed in total 6 nights, only thing to mention for the winter months is that there is no heating in the rooms, so you can add blankets or bring your own sleeping bag to add warmth. (so we did) Arwin...

This is not your typical Indian guest house - it is fantastic. It is more like a home than a character-less hotel. I got stuck in Jaipur for 8 days due to an illness and owner Arvind took super good care of me. Highly recommended!
