We had a wonderful time staying in this very welcoming family in Bikaner. Gouri the owner was extremely helpful in keeping us busy around the city, showing us all the sights, explaining many things about the local people and culture, and being informative concerning logistics and other travel matters. The house is small and pretty the rooftop has good views... More

Gouri who runs Shanti house is very willing to guide you around Bikaner old town. He is relaxed, helpful and informative. We did not stay at the guest house, but Gouri is certainly worth contacting for a guided walk, or other information and advice.

Owned by a welcoming family and centrally located inside the old city, Shanti House was ok for a night or two. It seemed overpriced considering the condition of the room, however. I fully agree with Wout v's assessment.

Food is OK too (our thali was served cold though). Also, we were send on a tour through Bikaner which was arranged by Gouri. This also included some shops of which we... More

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.

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.
