The warm welcome of the owners (a couple), the very clean rooms (5 in total), the quiet area, the closeness to the old and new city of Jaipur, the included breakfast, the relaxing rooftop, the friendly help with...

At this price range, Explorer's Nest is perfect. Clean, good food and extremely helpful owner. The owner arranged our pick up from the hotel and helped us out with everything we needed to know. HAs a fantastic rooftop terrace where you can enjoy a beer and watch the kite flying across the rooftops. Definitely recommend.

My wife and I stayed at the Explorers Nest hotel with another couple for 2 nights while we explored Jaipur. The hotel was, for the price, a great experience.

Explorer's Nest was recommended to me by a couple I met in Jaisalmer and they were right on the money.

My daughter and her friend needed somewhere to stay in Jaipur and I contacted the Explorers Nest based on excellent reviews from Hostelworld.
