“The Heart of India - and the best place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

I live in Mumbai and am from the States. I can say that it is impossible to imagine a better stay anywhere in India than with Kul and Shveta at Jaipur Friendly Villas.

I travelled with three and our goal for staying at a B&B was to experience Jaipur with the people who live there. That's what we got and more. Kul and Shveta's home is beautiful and comfortable; the accommodations are excellent; the food is among the best I've had in India; and most important: the comfort, wisdom, and company provided by the hosts make everything else seem irrelevant.

Go to Jaipur. Stay and Friendly Villas. You don't even need to make an agenda for yourself upon arriving; their recommendations are perfect. Hassle free, worry free, immensely cheap considering what you're getting, and a truly wonderful experience.

We felt like we were saying good bye to family.

A wonderful experience in Jaipur. Getting to know Shveta and Kul was like getting to India. Their kindness translates what we felf India had best to offer. Our trip wouldn't have been the same without staying at Jaipur Friendly Villa.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Jaipur Friendly Villa for 2 nights and it was really the perfect place to base ourselves in Jaipur.
We have been backpacking across Asia for just over 2 months and although the price of the room was a little more than we normally budget for, we thought it would be worth it to experience a home stay and have a more personal experience for a change.
Sveta and her husband Kul were very kind and let us have a room early in the morning (we arrived on their doorstep at about 7am straight from the airport). The house is located inside a gated community - a 150rs tuk tuk ride to the centre of town. The room was great, a comfy bed, aircon, cable tv, amazing power shower and little kitchenette, the wifi also worked perfectly.
The breakfasts were delicious, eggs, cereal, as much toast and guava jam as we could eat, fruit juice, tea and a different Indian breakfast item each day. (The masala dosa was particularly tasty!)
Both Sveta and Kul were very warm and chatty and full of useful information, they basically planned out a 2 day itinerary for us which was great as we were feeling lazy and quite happy to have someone tell us what is worth doing!
They also recommended places to eat each day. Our favourite was Jammies where we ate dinner both nights as the food was so tasty! The restaurant recommendations were a little pricier than we were used to in India but the food was delicious. We also had a Lassi from a place they recommended on MB road which was amazing! Very refreshing.
Kul showed us a short movie about indias mysticism on his home cinema screen which was very interesting! He was also incredibly helpful and booked our trains across Rajasthan for us, this was a massive help as it had been such a nightmare trying to set up a clear trip/irctc account from outside India.
I only wish we could have spent
more time there as it was so relaxing!

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of September. We enjoyed a most warm welcome by Shveta and her husband Kul. They arranged a driver to take us around Jaipur and show us the sights we wanted to see.
The room was fabulous, decorated nicely and very comfortable and although the bed was a little too firm for us we slept quite soundly after a busy day of touring the city. The driver they arranged for us was very knowledgeable about the city and which sights to take us to see in the limited time we had.
We enjoyed Shveta's breakfast (included) and her hospitality was wonderful. We decided to dine out for dinner and get the flavour of India on our own (dinner at JFV is additional cost). Shveta and Kul were helpful in tips on places to eat but we found that their suggestions were a little pricey.
We watched a movie about India provided by Kul (his idea of a 15 minute movie was underestimated by about an hour however lol) and experienced his theatre room (quite impressive).
We bought some beer and they made room in their fridge for it so that we could enjoy a "cold one" when we got in from our travels and before going out to dinner. Shveta made us sandwiches to take with us when we left just in case we didn't get anything to eat on the train to Agra which was very much appreciated, and presented us with a little wooden keepsake box which was a lovely gesture.
Overall, a great place to stay when in Jaipur!

We came to Jaipur from Agra, and this place was recommended by the folks in Agra. It's a beautiful home - everything is clean and top quality. Comfy beds, good AC, and excellent showers - which alone was worth the stay! The family was great, and had two cute dogs. They arranged a driver for us to go see the sights, and helped us book train tickets. All around solid stay, and lots of little personal touches. The one night we stayed in and watched a documentary about India and drank beer with the father. It was great, and I recommend it to everyone! Top quality, and price still within the reach of all but the grungiest backpacker!

My brother and I recently stayed here, and were thrilled with our stay. When the owners found out it was our birthday, they baked us a cake and provided us with a lovely evening. Besides those lovely personal touches, the house itself is AMAZING. Clean, modern, elegantly decorated, and still manages to have the feeling of visiting family.

The owners are as helpful as can be- they suggested fantastic sites to visit (the monkey temple is a must!) and helped us change train tickets to extend our stay. It's an A+ establishment all the way.

Stayed here 3 months back and we were recommended this place by our friends back from home. Were we glad to follow in their footsteps most places as we were happy with tried and trusted places.

Travelling with kids is not always easy so we were glad we had a big van drive us around the golden triangle. Jaipur was our first stop and Friendly Villa was more than friendly. Although we stayed for a quick one night we had a comfortable room and the breakfast was delicious.Shweta the lady who runs this place is ever so sweet and she could not have been more helpful offering our kids what they wanted.

Lovely house, lovely hosts and inexpensive. All the best and we shall continue sending more people on the same trail.

Richters.
