“Best bang for the buck”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My wife and I stayed here in Oct 2012 in a basic non A/C room, and we've got nothing but good things to say about this place. The owners are very helpful in providing free pickup/drop off, guidance on sight seeing, booking further destinations. The hotel is located in a convenient spot in in the city and the major sights are a Rs 60-70 auto ride away. The rooms are basic but CLEAN which was very important to us. The neighbourhood is quiet at night (except for the neighbours dog kept barking). The only downside in our eyes was that there aren't a lot of food places to eat around here so it was a struggle to get food. The hotel has a menu and they cater from somewhere but we never tried it since it looked blah and overpriced.

At the end of the day for I thought I got the best bang for my buck by staying at this place.

Room Tip: Ask to look at different rooms before you decide. We skipped an expensive room because the cheaper r...

We stayed at karni niwas for 4 nights. We stayed one day longer because one of us got sick. They were very helpful and made us feel at home.

The location of the guesthouse is good. It's short rickshaw ride to the old centre and near the train station. Its located in a quiet street so a good night sleep.

We stayed in the rs. 700 Non airco room which was spacious and very clean. We had a very good breakfast on our shared balcony each morning, a good start of the day!

Also, the free pick-up and drop at the train station is very nice. Overall, an excellent guesthouse!

We had a basic non AC room for 700Rs. The bathroom and bedroom was spacious, tidy but dated and worn. The bathroom could do with a decent deep clean.
There are numerous balconies and common areas to hang out in.
Located off the very busy, noisy and dusty main roads.
Free wifi could no be picked up in room, only near the front area of the hotel.
Owner dropped us off for free to the railway station at 3am.
We did not eat here.
Bottom line is good for price.

Room Tip: Beware of Mosquitos in the rainy season.

No restaurant but instead roomservice on your veranda or balcony. We loved our stay here, mainly because of this! No hassle of going to a restaurant. Just read your book, sit, eat and relax. Rooms were clean, many different rooms available. Owner drops you of at Bus or trainstation, no charge. If you travel alone, this is not a place to meet other travellers...

The rooms are nice and clean, the owners are friendly, they can send a rickshaw to pick you up at the trainstation. The prices are very reasonable, and fiid is good. Merci!

Considering the choice in Jaipur, this is a decent budget option. The rooms are pretty comfortable and there is an ample amount of lounging space, balconies and a roof terrace (but not with very inspiring views). You can order food from a smal menu to your room too, but this can take a while, especially after hours. There is internet on request. For the price, which seemed to be quite standard in many other budget hotels we looked at, this one had the nicest atmosphere and rooms.
