This guesthouse is the perfect place to take refuge from the bustling city of Jaipur, while still being within walking distance from the Old City and all major tourist attractions. It is a beautifully decorated home and Arvind is a wonderful host. Great for solo travellers or couples looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful. Arvind will help you out in... More

Perfect place to stay, if you are looking for a home stay. Highly recommend the place for couples or nuclear families. Sandwiched between old and new jaipur, a well gated community. Hosts are warm and has well maintained property. Don't expect hotel like service, its a B&B with all basic amenities.

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and extended an extra night as we enjoyed it so much. The location is perfect, right next to the pink city and the new city but is tucked away enough to be peaceful and relaxing. Arvind and his wife Shoma were extremely helpful throughout our stay and very informative and welcoming. The... More

We stayed here during our first few days in Jaipur. The place is in a safe area close to the old city. The host is very kind and so is the staff. Breakfast/lunch and snacks are available at a very cheap cost and of wonderful quality. The room was spaceous and had an ensuite, with warm water 24/7. The place... More

My stay in Jaipur with Arvind and Shoma was a very comfortable and memorable stay. They helped us navigate the city. They gave us guidance and good tips. Very helpful and concerned hosts. The staff were humble. The price of food/laundry was affordable. The living room has a good collection of books and antiques. We would definitely recommend this place... More

I spent a few days in this place and regretted not being able to stay longer. It's close to the city centre but in a quiet street. I loved doing yoga on the rooftop in the morning. The owner, Arvind, is really nice and together with the other guests we were enjoying talks about everything in the evening!

Stayed @ Explorer's Nest last week during our Kerala to Himachal drive. It was the best decision to select this place to stay. Great homely atmosphere and what we thought at first was it would be the safest place for family / lady travellers. Arvind sir and wife were too friendly and cooperative. The food was also great and the... More

My friend and I spent 6 weeks at explorer's nest, because we had an internship there. The family was very warmhearted and we directly felt welcome when we arrived.
