Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The owners are very nice and extremely helpful, happy to make us a cup of chai and assisted me in buying a present I was looking for. Location is right in the old city, which was perfect for us. Room was clean and wifi was good during my stay. Would definitely stay again.

Staid at Shanti House for my time in Bikaner. Very good location, able to cross to the Old City easily. Gouri and his wife were very helpful in providing knowledge of area as well as being accommodating. Cosy room, WiFi, and safe! Couldn't ask for anymore, highly recommend for a stay in Bikaner.

Meeting Gouri in Bikaner for a tour of the old section of the city was the best decision to take. His friendly approach combined to his knowledge of the Bikaner history was great, Every street, building was no secret for Gouri; I strongly recommend him. I don't have his cell number but he can easily be found on Facebook under... More

Shanti house had a very authentic Indian feel and was decorated very homely. The family were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax. Our room was very cute on the top floor although it gets very hot throughout the day.

This guesthouse is in a good position, in the centre of the really nice town. Gouri and his wife are very kind, and their daughter adorable. They arranged the transport from the station and offered us plenty of authentic chai as soon as we got there; Gouri guided us around the town and explained us plenty of cultural and historical...

Stayed 2 nights in this simple, but very welcoming accommodation. Complementary pick-up from railway station. Complementary walking tour of old part of city centre. It's a quiet location, yet within walking distance of railway station, restaurants and shops. The wi-fi was the best we encountered in a 1 month tour of India. Gouri and his wife go the extra mile...

This is the place to go in bikaner as a backpacker. Gouri is a jewel and must be the most honest guest house owner in rajasthan. He helped us with everything. So if you're in bikaner and you travel budget, gi to him. No regrets.

The rooms are a little basic but everything is there. Gouri the owner is a nice man who speaks well english and he is very helpful. You can choose what you want to eat for dinner, and he/his wife will go to the market and make you fresh food. Beware of tuktuk drivers who say that shanti house is full... More

Time passes throught the little streets of Bikaner was really charming with the experience of the owner of the Guesthouse, Gouri. More than a clean room and calm location, Gouris family is really sweet, welcoming and helpfull at any time. You will surely learn all there is to know about Bikaner There! Have a good stay!
