Vijay, the owner, directly came to the train station to pick me up, a really nice man. I have to admit that due to my poor resistance on hot temperatures, I had to take a room with AC so the price was a little bit high (for Indian standards, not european, approximately 13€). Vijay's wife cooks wonderfully well and the... More

This is truly a guesthouse, with a welcoming family atmosphere and elaborately decorated living room. It's a tuk tuk ride from town but it's nice enough to just hang out at the house if you need a break. Camelman safari was amazing, sleeping under the stars and nice guides. You can have home-cooked meals at the guesthouse which are little... More

We had a very good time at Vijay Guesthouse. Clean rooms, nice staff. The owner and his wife were superfriendly and very helpful. We learned about the desert, about cooking and were part of the camel-festival on a horsewaggon - great fun! The guesthouse is close to the red fort and in walking distance to the old town (20 min).

We stayed at Vijay's guesthouse for 1 night (2 days). We were very happy with our room, which was very clean with excellent A/C, the bathroom was great. We ate our meals at Vijay which worked out well. Good wifi which was free. Very friendly and helpful staff. Happy to recommend.

We had a wonderful stay with Vijay in Bikaner, his property in the dessert and with his house in Shekawati. It was really an amazing experience. Especially the night out in the dessert (sleeping under the stars) and the 2 day tour together with Vijay in Shekawati. From the moment we arrived at 05:00 in the morning untill we were... More

We came to this guesthouse to have a safari, but had some really good breakfast there, the common rooms were clean with good wifi. If you stay in this guesthouse you will be tempted to take a camel safari. But think twice. We took a 1 day/1night tour from Vijay, for which we were promised English speaking staff who can... More

we chose this quest house based on a very positive review of the rough guide. The promised garden was a bit disappointing, and rooms rather plain. Apparently the camel man is quite famous, we didn't really see him during our stay. Location also rather outside city centre, not in a pleasant environment.

Lovely guest house and lovely family. Vijay is a character. Do the Shekawati 2 night tour if you get a chance, fabulous experience, we learnt so much, well worth the cost. Thank you Vijay for being a generous host, and to Mrs Vijay for her great food.

We stayed at Vijay's for three nights plus a 2 day camel safari. The guest house is really nice with a large garden, cute little dog, balconies and a common room. Staff are lovely and there is a honesty system for bottled water, beer and fizzy drinks. Camel safaris are excellent. Its well worth staying the night. Downsides: the place... More

The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. The food was good. The manager, Vijay, made our time in Bikaner very special. He was able (he is a highly respected personal in the community) to organise activities that we would have otherwise not been able to participate in. Just note that you'll incur a 10% tax on accommodation that's not specified... More
