Tired from sight seeing and long train journeys (as well as the over enthusiastic pedlars and rickshaw drivers) it was an absolute delight to find a place in which we could truly relax. Our double room was very simple but... More

I booked to stay at Explorer's Nest at the last minute. To my surprise, it was one of the best stay I had. Located in the midst busy Jaipur, EN is the right place to travel to all attractions; that include Pink Fort, Hawa Mahal and Jantra Mantra. Good thing it's very nearby to either Bus Central Station or Jaipur... More

We stayed here during our three months in India and it still stands out as one of the best. The owner and his wife are absolutely delightful, sincere and care so greatly about their guests and their time in Jaipur. Home away from home.

The owners are Arvind Grover, a retired Lieutenant Colonel and his wife, Shoma, a thoughtful and interested woman who is a professor of Botany.
