“One of our best stays in India”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

From the moment we arrived, at 5.30am, we were met with friendly smiles and helpful staff. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful and are often asking what you are doing/have been doing just because they are interested, not trying to sell you something as like other places in India.

As there was no rooms available so early we were put in the wifi lounge to rest for a few hours. Our room was ready at 10am, as we were told. It was super clean with clean sheets and a really, really good shower.

We only had breakfast at the hotel but it was good portions and nice food - a wee bit pricey though.

It's a 10 min rickshaw ride to the Pink City and less than 10 min walk to the train station. There are local shops, cafes and stalls nearby as well as a couple of internet places. There is wifi in the hotel and one public computer.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Jaipur.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely, relaxing stay at the Vinayak Guest House. It is conveniently located near the main attractions but on a quiet street in a pleasant area. The owner greeted as at the gate and checked us in quickly. Throughout our stay he was extremely helpful, friendly and attentive to our needs - he even brought us up a complimentary cup of tea in the morning!. The room had been recently decorated and was very comfortable and clean. Our room had no mirror but the owner sorted this out within minutes.

There is not one thing I can complain about - it was the perfect guest house experience in India and excellent value for money!

We stumbled onto this hotel after we had already been in Jaipur for a couple of nights... and I wish we had found it earlier as we had been in a very expensive and overrated place before this. Vinayak Guesthouse is a family run enterprise that beats most accommodation in India handsdown (we have just spent 2.5 months travelling all over as a family). It was friendly [excellent English here], very good value, well located in a very pleasant street just minutes from the train station. Best of all for us, they had a large family room which slept all 4 of us comfortably. Also appreciated were good hot water supply in a clean bathroom. Service was friendly and attentive, and this extended to the lovely rooftop restaurant [good food too]. Highly recommended - will stay again if we return to Jaipur.

I was coming from a sub par hostel next door and the internet wasn't working. Since I was going to check in here anyway, the manager let me use the wi-fi. After checking in, I had a wonderful experience with the customer service. The manager even helped me get a bus ticket to get to Agra. I also met a lot of great people on the rooftop.

We had such a short time in Jaipur and stayed at this guest house for one night. We arrived before check in time and the family allowed us to check in early at no extra charge. The room was spacious, clean and interesting. They had a locker to shut away your passport etc.
There is a chill out room with a PC, books, relaxing area and wifi. Also a roof top resaurant with great family cooked food.
The thing that made our stay so great was Ramen and the rest of the family. They were so welcoming. They had great knowledge of the area and could tell you which number bus to get at what cost to the Amber Fort. They also will tell you how much to expect to pay for an auto Ricshaw.
It is located near the train station which is walkable however expect to pay Rs50 for an autorickshaw. Its located on a quiet road so you are not disturbed by traffic at night.
I would love to stay here again. Its our favourite guest house so far in India. Thank you Ramen and family for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Ramen will give you tips on how how much to expect to pay the auto-rickshaw drivers as they will try...
