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

Arvind and his staff were professional and very helpful. I only stayed here for 2 nights, however if I was to return this would be my first choice- location is central with access to good eating options,quiet in contrast to the rest of the city and rooms are basic but met all my needs. If you're looking for an affordable... 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 husband and I stayed here in January 2015 and enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable with a big bed and lots of space around it, and a private bathroom with hot water. Just outside the door to the room was a lovely balcony to sit looking over the quiet street. The BnB is small and friendly. 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. When you get inside the house it is already very cosy and you can get some books the travellers left there from the shelves or lounge at a comfy little seating... More

Arvind was very kind excepting my reservation. He arranged a timely and reliable pick up from the train station for us to his place for a fair price. When we arrived our room was as pictured.

We were on our 2 weeks tour of Rajasthan and our stay at Explorer's Nest was the best of all. We felt very welcome here with the friendly help and guidance of the owner always available. It's very central location was a big added advantage. Loved their homemade herbal tea. Would certainly recommend.
