We have been in the Explorer's nest two nights and we really recommend it. The owner is a gentleman, the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. It is walking distance from the Pink City in a safe area and it is also very good value.

We stayed for two nights at Explorer's Nest, and found it a wonderful base from which to explore the stunning city of Jaipur. Arvind arranged for someone to pick us up from the bus station, which worked out perfectly, and we had a warm welcome when arriving at Arvind's home. One of us had the single room on the roof with great views over the city. The rooms were clean and good value for proximity to the centre. We ate at the Explorer's Nest one evening - absolutely delicious home cooked food, and plenty of it! Based in a residential street, this home stay was a nice alternative to guesthouses.

Arvind made us immediatly very at ease.
The place is really quiet and clean and in the same time closed to the main places. We were there at the end of our trip, and it was a real pleasure to sleep quietly without noises !!!!!
The staff is nice and friendly. We look forward to go back there

We were very fortunate to stay at this pleasant home stay in Jaipur, although we weren't very lucky in our time in there as we both, me and my wife, got a really bad bug from eating in a nearby restaurant in our second day. Luckily enough we had Arvind to take care of us like a father, he was more worried about us than ourselves. He called the best doctor in town and we were looked after very well. We had to stay longer in Jaipur to recover, and I doubt it that would have any other place in India that we would be treated and cared like we were. We ended up spending good time and long conversations with Arvind and Shoma, and that made our trip to Jaipur worth it.
Don't think twice! Good location, great service and the best home stay experience you will have in India.

Honestly speaking, we are so touched by your kind appreciation. Frankly speaking what we did was our duty as your host. I think any one else would have done the same. Your appreciation shows how big a heart you both have. We wish you both all the best in life and your travels.

This is Arvind and Shoma's home, and it feels like it! A beautiful quiet place, great location close to the pink city. Breakfast is at the family breakfast table, the rooms are lovely and Arvind and Shoma are very friendly and helpful. It is like living in a nice home, a very good atmosphere. Jaipur is pretty intense, this is a lovely quiet place to be close to the action, but also to get away from it! The rooftop room was a little small for me, but the other rooms are spacious, clean, lots of air and light and very pretty.

I sent an email inquiring about a room to stay with my family and received no reply. Time was running out and we were leaving the next day to Jaipur, so we called to check personally. This was the response:
"We have no rooms and we don't accept children!" and with this they ended the short and quite rude conversation.

There is no warning against families on their website. They also could have very easily taken a minute of their time to reply to my initial email and advise me that they don't have a free room. Lastly, they had a chance to simply and courteously handle the phone conversation. They did none of those things.
If you are a family, look somewhere else.
