Explorer's Nest is a gem of a find! Affordable rates in a prime location (15 mins walk from attractions & 5 minutes from food & entertainment) with clean rooms, hot water & cultured decor. It's simple, safe & allows you to feel a "true" Indian experience. Trust Arvind Sir's knowledgeable recommendations (fish tikka & kite flying) and try kind Vishnu's... More

We stayed October last year. The rooms were lovely, we stayed in 2 as we stayed for longer than expected so had to move for a guest that had pre booked. The rooms were spacious, really clean and quirkily furnished. In fact the retro/vintage artefacts around the whole guesthouse were really cute and gave it a homely feel. My partner... More

I had booked and paid in advance for a room with a private exit but on arrival I was given a different room. When I pointed out the mistake and that I was given a cheaper room than the one paid for, the owner, Mr. Arvind, at first denied it than became confrontational and aggressive. Because I was after a... More

Our stay at the Explorer's Nest was just perfect and very memorable. Arvind, the host of the Explorer's household was very responsive & friendly in e-mails for a couple of months prior to our arrival. Our dates weren't firm at all and yet he was very accommodating just the same. We hoped for the Explorer's Home, but it was full,... More

First of all we arranged pick up from the airport. The driver was there waiting for us with our name even though our flight was delayed. There is no better way to be welcomed to a place than having a pick up service and although they charge a little more than the taxi rate I'd reccomend a pick up. The... More

Unfortunately the Hotel rating system is not well understood in India and a four star resort or hotel is often the same as a one star. They often mix the review stars with hotel ratings. This is NOT a 4 star hotel as mentioned on many other websites! It's a lovely small B & B run by a very friendly... More

Jaipur is a beautiful city and there was so much to do the entire day, we were glad to be coming back to a warm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The guest house is well done, and the owners have taken great trouble with the decorations. Definitely worth a trip to the blue city!

This small family run guesthouse is perfectly located in heart of Jaipur, yet nicely tucked away from the busy streets. Great breakfast and comfy rooms. The owner is very friendly and he went out if his way to help us. I highly recommend this place!
