Shanti House.....clean, sweet, cheap, meant for backpackers, homecooked food, good help but not pushy at all. I stayed in Bikaner with Gouri and his family, in his fantastic little guest house. This is more of a homestay than a hotel. You really feel relaxed. While it is like a homestay though, you have your privacy. Complete with a little rooftop... More

Great room for the price in the Old City with clean bathroom. Best owners, Gouri and wife (plus their gorgeous daughter) did everything possible to make my time in Bikaner the best ever, including pickup, great food, and even special haircut service. 100% genuine trustworthy people. Can't wait to return.

I stayed here for two nights and was very impressed. The owner, Gouri, was waiting for me at the bus stop and took me straight to the hotel. Nothing was too much for him as he arranged for my day trip to see the rat temple, and all my excursions to the local shops. He is extremely knowledgeable about the... More

A good way to experience accommodation in a real Indian house. The owner, his wife and their little girl are all very welcoming. They have been nice enough to get me from the bus station and then back to the train station for free and while I was there they have been very helpful and given me all possible info... More

I had a wonderful experience staying at Shanti House. Gouri was extremely helpful in guiding our camel safari trip in Bikaner and never pressured us. He always went out of his way to help. I highly recommend staying here.

Can provide you a very complete tour in the old city and his Garden Cafe where you can have a good time talking with the... More

We stayed 3 nights in this guest house. We liked it because it is small (just 3 guest rooms), so you have contact to the family. And we liked it because the manager Gouri was very nice and friendly. He gave us recommendations how to book a camel safari and how to get a good price for that. He also... More

My trip to Bikaner was seamless because of helpful Gouri. Shanti House has very basic amnesties which was more than I needed during my stay. Gouri was kind and helped me with sight seeing in Bikaner which I'm very grateful for. I'd recommend Shanti House since it's located close by the Fort.

The owner Gouri is a very nice and trustworthy man. He showed us a school on the countryside where his mother teaches and didn t asked for any money. He also wrote us an email because we paid 200 INR too much when we left the money in the room since we needed to leave early in the morning to... More
