I stayed here on and off for a few weeks. It's location is convenient (central and near bus station) and the rooms are not only clean but updated and very comfortable. The food is delicious as well and if you arrive no matter what the hour the staff are so great they will wake up and feed you! Many guesthouses in Jaipur and India in general, will make deals with rickshaws and travel companies who end up harassing you at the door. These people will taint their own cities safety in your mind just to get a few bucks of business off of you. The owners of this place are unique in that they do not subscribe to these business practices. They are honest and straight and do not have any affiliations. This makes entering, leaving, and travelling from this guesthouse such a pleasure. When I arrived in Jaipur I had not arranged accommodation ahead of time and was looking for a place by telephone at midnight. The concierge Gajendra woke up and invited me warmly to come and check the rooms. When I arrived he was so helpful, having woken up from sleep, he still insisted on carrying my luggage and having a meal brought to me. The following days he continued to be a great resource for the best places to eat, the best way to navigate the bus and train system, and even helped me to fix my camera when it broke by finding me a cannon rep in the city who would be able to honour my warranty. Just pure service and honesty.
I began to trust this hotel so much that I did some overnight trips to nearby cities with a small backpack while leaving the rest of my luggage at at Atithi. It became my second home in India.
Internet access is reliable and they even have computers for your use.
I plan to visit India again in the years ahead, and I will definitely be spending time at Atithi! I hope Gajendra is still there to greet me when I arrive!
