“Great place, shame about the trains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The quality of this budget hotel is high: nice bedrooms and common areas, and a super rooftop patio to enjoy the excellent and varied breakfast. Dinner was good too. Overall Rajputana offers good value for money and KP is a well informed , courteous and helpful host. I wouldn't hesitate to give it the full five stars but for two things: it's quite far from the Pink City so you should allow another Rs200 a day for tuktuk fares and it's right next to a very busy railway track; so much so that during the night it seems almost as though trains are coming straight through your bedroom!. Definitely not a place for light sleepers.

Honestly, JUST DO IT!

If you are looking for a home away from home experience this place is incredible. We were two girls travelling through India for almost 3 months, we felt so incredibly comfortable and loved here. The rooms are clean and vary greatly in price, so from low - higher end budgets it works. The food cooked for you at the home stay is DELICIOUS. This family went out of their way to assist us with further travel plans and advise. The only down side is that it is a 10 minute rickshaw drive to the old town. Phenomenal memories, I'd recommend staying here to anyone.

We stayed at Rajputana guesthouse for two nights in November 2013. Just after we arrived we were already sorry we had already booked our train ticket to Amritsar, for we found ourselves very much at home at this place. KP is a very friendly, enthusiastic and warm person, always willing to help, explain or chat. His family is very lovely and welcoming as well.
The house is nice and spacious, rooms are comfortable and clean. The private bathrooms are just opposite the corridor (one step away from your room) and are spotless.
The house is pretty close to the train tracks and you can hear the trains at night, but it did't bother us at all and we slept perfectly well during our stay (if you are a very light sleeper this might be different, but it didn't seem to be an issue to any of the other guests either).
The food KP and his family prepared for us was very good as well. The first night we were there the food was served on the roof terrace for the first time. A really good place to eat, with a nice view, and a perfect way to meet fellow travelers and exchange experiences.
Jaipur is a lovely city and KP had some great tips about where to go and when and helped us with negotiating the right tuktuk prices (it's a 10 min. drive to the city centre).
We liked it so much it hurt a little to leave so soon... So, we'd love to come back here and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice homestay in Jaipur!

Everything about our stay was great, KP was there to check us in at 4am, let us sleep in a the beautiful downstairs house (literally took a photo as i walked in and then collapsed on the first soft mattress we found in weeks!). Then cooked us amazing breakfasts, offered great advice and organised our autos as it is a bit far out. His chai and muesli are delish and when we were feeling unwell he went out of his way to make us feel at home.
Such a lovely family to stay with!

Would definitely recommend this place. The host is extremely kind hearted and cooks great food and helped us organise our stay in jaipur perfectly. Additional the outdoor and indoor common areas are spacious and well decorated.

We had a very positive experience here and would stay here if we were in jaipur again. Only negative was the proximity to the train lines causing noise pollution. However, the trains do not come very often and thus would only cause problems for very light sleepers.
Thank you!

We were suspicious of the extremely positive views on here but intrigued by the reasonable price, so decided to go for it - and we're so glad we did. The guest house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. KP is a great host and told us where to get a local bus up to Amber Palace for just 12rps. He isn't in cahoots with the local tuk tuk drivers so can give honest and useful advice with no ulterior motive. He also cooks great food - we had breakfast on the roof terrace and the dinner was proper home cooked Indian food - not tourist rubbish. The location isn't central but it's only an 80rps tuk tuk ride into town and it was nice to stay away from the congested, polluted city. All in all we felt thoroughly looked and we'll be returning to Rajputana on our way back through Jaipur.

As a Tour guide and owner of my tour company, I recommand to make a stop and stay in Priti family house where you will taste indian flavour and welcoming.
Priti and her family will do the impossible to make your stay in Jaipur as best as possible.
Perfect place with small groups to feel like at home and taste delicious housemade cuisine from Priti.
