“Best family running a Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Make no mistake, it is a guest house and not a hotel. But that is OK.In fact that turned out be good for me as I completely depend on our hotel host for planning our trip. They 2 brothers did really well and took a lot of time out for us and our trip. Will definitely recommend it to everybody.

Stayed 2 nights. The place is 6 to 7 minutes walk away from the clock tower. There are far less tourists there than there are in the area north of the tower, which is nice. The area is not so quiet, though, as we had ringing bells from the temple a few times a day, for maybe 20 minutes at a time.
The room was clean, the AC was good. The two brothers who run the place try very hard. The wives do the cooking, which was ok, and the rooftop view is nice, although much more can be done with that roof. Our main problem was that a few times when we came downstairs, we felt as if we were in the middle of an argument. It made for awkward silences.
A few tweeks and it could becomes a great place.

We stayed at the Hem Guesthouse and it was our favorite place in all of India. The owner couldn't have been more nice and helpful. Free pickup from train station was awesome. Perfect location walking distance to everything. The food was seriously the best, and you can NOT beat the amazing view of the fort from the rooftop. Wifi worked great in our room, which was decorated so beautifully! Clean rom, AC/fans, hot water...seriously, it's the best!

i loved the location as it was in the middle of old town. roof top also has a great view of the fort! owner was really helpful...though we did not have any prior booking( just had email conversation) they picked us from bus stand...and the food was fab. wifi was ok. :D
only negative thing was bathroom...it was damn slippery and very risky
i hope they will take care of this...otherwise very nice place to stay.

Run by two lovely and helpful brothers, it's worth staying here for the incredible views of the fort from the excellent rooftop restaurant alone. Others reasons to choose Hem Guesthouse include the fantastic service, delicious food and great value rooms, to mention just a few.
This is the kind of place you wish all guesthouses in India were like. The family made us feel at home from the start. They brought us free tea and coffee and snacks after our long bus journey, and Vipin gave us a free lift to the bus station in the back of his motorbike so we could buy our onward bus tickets for the following day. They could not have been kinder. The rooms are nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and all have air con. The location is great too, in the heart of the old town near the markets and bazaar, but down a quiet alley so suprisingly peaceful.
