It was our first experience of a home stay, but has been so excellent that we will surely explore similar options in future. Of course it was made special by the hosts Mr Joy & Ms Archana SIngh , who are so warm, friendly and hospitable, that it was a home away from home! Not to forget Yashpal and the crew who made our stay so pleasant and comfortable. We reached Jaipur so late but they were on the phone guiding us to locate the house even at 11pm.The location is so good, with many restaurants and malls nearby as also the old city just 5km away. We look forward to going back soon again!

Hi,

Jai Vilas is a nice place to stay. Room, wash rooms are clean & tidy. Food is good & the staff is courteous. The market is nearby & there are lots of eateries if someone wants to have the food outside.

Archana & Joy make up a really good host.

I would recommend this place to any one who wishes to be away from basic hotels. We went in a crowd of 10 people, and the rooms, toilets and linen were very clean. Archana & Joy were making sure every one was comfortable. We ordered bed coffee and bed tea which came in extra, but the breakfast was included in the package.

It was a very pleasant, cozy and comfortable stay.

Room Tip: If I had a choice, the rooms on the terrace side were the best.

Stayed from November 28, 2012 to December 5, 2012, preparing and appearing for my Masters in Law exams. No disturbance at all, as if i am in a secluded place with no noise. Yet, was just walking distance from eateries of all sorts, groceries n provisions.

Joy made it a point to visit at least once a day to check if everything was alright. Not to forget the eversmiling Yashpal, who made things appear at my command.

The interiors were great and soothing. Cozy bed. Nice linen. Clean bathroom.

Dear Mr. Sanjeev,

We truly are glad that you all enjoyed your long stay with us at Jai Vilas, our home is planned in the old havali style so the guest are in a home stay yet have their own privacy and are away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It was always a pleasure to be with you all though for a short time but rewarding in terms of learning. I have informed Yashpal of the kind words you have mentioned for him, he was glad to hear and thanks you for the same.

We look forward to having you back with us.

Thankyou,
Joy

Jai Villas is a beautiful home and our hosts Archana and Joy were so kind, patient and helpful during our stay. Unfortunately, while traveling, my husband and I both fell very ill, and Joy and Archana couldn't have done more to make us feel better.

The house itself is set in a lovely, safe location behind an impressive gate and once inside, a feeling of serenity pervades. The rooms were clean, welcoming and comfortable, and the courtyard is reminiscent of a Moroccan riad which is a lovely surprise. The whole building is beautiful and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.

I can't recommend Jai Villas highly enough. If you are travelling to Jaipur, give the hotels a miss and opt for a homestay like Jai Villas. It is the best way to experience true Indian hospitality.

Dear Asmaa,

Thankyou for such an elaborate review and your kind words for us, there is nothing more satisfying then taking homely care of our guest especially like you and your husband who are so humble and kind. We truly are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, it would have been even better had both of you were feeling better.

The house was build by my late father Captain Vijay Singh Chief pilot instructor and a V.V.I.P pilot in the Rajasthan Flying Club , Jaipur, we have only run it as a home stay now. The courtyard is build in our Rajasthani style and yes the fountain have been inspired by the Moroccan architecture.

We can't thank you enough for the appreciation you have for Jai Vilas. Please do give us an opportunity to host such a lovely couple as you two.

Take care,
Joy Singh

Stayed at Jai Villas in November 2012, and had an excellent three night stay

The hosts' hospitality certainly made our stay in Jaipur, and having locals to talk to and exchange conversation with is the best way to travel around Rajasthan. The rooms are modest, clean and well kept and the house itself is beautiful. The location is central and easy to get to the Pink City, Amber Fort or the railway station.

If you're heading to Jaipur, forget the hotels and stay in a homestay especially Jai Villas. Your trip to Jaipur will be much more rewarding! Big thank you to Mr and Mrs Singh for making our stay feel like a home away from home.

Dear Mr.Nabeel,

Thank you so much for all your appreciation for the room and the house, yes Sir we are very centrally located as you would have noticed we are only 5km from the railway station / bus and 7km from the Airport and just minutes away from the old city.

We do appreciate your sharing your stay at Jai Vilas with a wider audience and hope to see you again sometime, when ever you travel to Morocco do remember us, with the will of almighty we will also plan a trip to Morocco.

Thank you once again for your lovely comment.

Take Care.
