My boyfriend and I stayed at Jaipur Friendly Villa for 2 nights and it was really the perfect place to base ourselves in Jaipur.
We have been backpacking across Asia for just over 2 months and although the price of the room was a little more than we normally budget for, we thought it would be worth it to experience a home stay and have a more personal experience for a change.
Sveta and her husband Kul were very kind and let us have a room early in the morning (we arrived on their doorstep at about 7am straight from the airport). The house is located inside a gated community - a 150rs tuk tuk ride to the centre of town. The room was great, a comfy bed, aircon, cable tv, amazing power shower and little kitchenette, the wifi also worked perfectly.
The breakfasts were delicious, eggs, cereal, as much toast and guava jam as we could eat, fruit juice, tea and a different Indian breakfast item each day. (The masala dosa was particularly tasty!)
Both Sveta and Kul were very warm and chatty and full of useful information, they basically planned out a 2 day itinerary for us which was great as we were feeling lazy and quite happy to have someone tell us what is worth doing!
They also recommended places to eat each day. Our favourite was Jammies where we ate dinner both nights as the food was so tasty! The restaurant recommendations were a little pricier than we were used to in India but the food was delicious. We also had a Lassi from a place they recommended on MB road which was amazing! Very refreshing.
Kul showed us a short movie about indias mysticism on his home cinema screen which was very interesting! He was also incredibly helpful and booked our trains across Rajasthan for us, this was a massive help as it had been such a nightmare trying to set up a clear trip/irctc account from outside India.
I only wish we could have spent
more time there as it was so relaxing!
