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

We stayed for 2 nights in January and, unfortunately our daughter arrived feeling unwell having developed a very nasty case of gastro (picked up in Delhi). Gouri went out of his way to find a Dr late one evening, he picked up medicines and sourced nurses to set up an IV for her. His wife also prepared her special food.... More

Gouri and his family will educate you and guide you but not pressure you. Their house is comfortable and Indian, without all the western mod cons. The provided food is great and good value, what the locals eat. When my daughter got ill, Gouri went far beyond the call of duty to get the best medical care, without delay, late... More

Recently spent a few nice days and nights in the Shanti House. It's a nice place to relax after other more touristic destinations and explore a busy city with good sights and nice people. In the Shanty house you can expect to meet Gouri's whole family and night's talking Bikaner and anything else on the rooftop. Room was great and... More

Shanti house in Bikaner is the way to go! Gouri and and his lovely wife truly went above and beyond to make sure we were always comfortable and most importantly, happy! The rooms have exactly what you need and the rooftop is perfect for a cup of tea, or beer, with new friends. Gouri does guided tours but never makes... More

It was great to stay in Shanti House for a day and a half. They were very accomodating, cooking us three meals and giving us advice. They are a very nice family and they offered to include us in their activities. There were a few other travelers around, so it would have been easy to split costs and meet new... More

Rooms are smallish and basic (no hot water and squat toilets) but very clean. Probably should be a bit cheaper than what they are. Fantastic, very reasonably priced home-cooked food. Nice family who are a big part if your stay and who are very helpful. Unfortunately I never got to do the walking tour of the old town with Gouri... More

Great guesthouse with small but clean rooms. Gouri gave us a free tour through the old part of town, where the guest house is located. Make sure you get a business card with a map and the address since the Auto Rickshaw drivers always had trouble finding the GH. This is a great place if you want to interact with... More
