This place is just avarage. Stayed there for 3 nights with my girlfriend. It gets very loud in the neighbourhood during the evening and the rooms are a little softer then the floor. The rooms are clean tho and staff is good. We got thrown in a worse room after we settled in cause of their mistake during our arival. That was anoying and also you can not pay for the washing machine with card for some stupid reason. We only saved money for uber to the airport so we had to go out and look for atm last minute, would be good to know that in advance. Also on booking it said we could check out from 00.00 - 00.00 but she told us we had to leave at 11am the night before wich also sucked. Fix that plz.
The house is beautifully set back against a garden which is very green and beautiful. The room I stayed in was very comfortable, large, and super clean. Amita, who is the owner of this airbnb is very helpful and gave us a lot of tips for sight seeing and even fixed the cabs to take us to forts and to abhaneri. The driver she fixed, Nooreddin , was extremely nice and helpful and showed us a lot of sights along the way. I would totally recommend staying in this home away from home in Jaipur.
We booked bss TA reviews and were not dissapointed. Magpie villa is centrally located. For city visit, utilize Noorden +918290450182 for taxi. Since, we had already made arrangements, we utilized his services for airport pick up. Hostess Ameeta is very couteous and helpful for all needs. See attached Home Stay Rules, simple n clear.
If you can keep your voice low then this is a must try stay at Jaipur. Convenient location, clean rooms, beautiful villa. You can order food from outside and eat in the lovely sitting area. Welcome room is well decorated. Very thoughtfully managed. I will stay here again if i visit Jaipur in future.
Kind friendly lady called Amita looked after us so well in her lovely clean home with wonderful bathroom and washing machine . A Godsend after 4 weeks of traveling . Safe for women alone , and great breakfast . Aideen
The lane is misleading, the oasis awaits! Right from the moment you enter the building perimeter, you know that this is not run of the mill. (And you don't mind the polite instruction, "Would you mind taking off your shoes? We would provide you slippers inside.") The small little house which has five rooms on the ground floor (didn't explore the first floor) is very tastefully done despite being minimalist. Rooms are NEAT and beds NEAT & comfortable. Preassigned places for water, tea, toaster etc. The place even has a fully functional kitchen should you wish to cook! The location of the property couldn't be so central and yet away from noise and hustle - walk for a minute and you are on M I Road, the main market of Jaipur. Polite and helpful staff, crisp and hygienic interiors, heart of the city...You really won't mind that they don't serve you food! (Walk out to eat or order it in)…
Magpie villa, or Maggie villa as the locals called it, is a conveniently located house- converted into a bnb. It is walking distance to great eateries like Niros and the Lassiwala (the latter one went to multiple times during our stay at Magpie!) And very close to the main shopping areas of the pink city. The villa itself is great. Everything was very clean and the rooms came with a little guide to the city which was actually a quick read to things we might want to check out (and check out we did). Eventhough we went in the middle of summer (mid June!), our travel around the city was made easy by hiring a driver for the day. Noordeen ensured we were always hydrated with cold water and guided us to stores which had items of quality. He was very friendly and helpful, and I definitely recommend getting a driver to take you to the forts and such, because otherwise waiting to get transport in the heat can become taxing. If you are looking to stay at Magpie, do contact Noordeen for a chauffeured ride around town. You can reach him at +(91) 82904 50182. He is affiliated with the villa, so you will be able to get more info from the host as well. Enjoy your stay in Jaipur!…
This was a great choice. The rooms are wonderfully clean and the staff are very helpful. I was almost surprised how good it was because I don't think the photos on here do it justice. Amita sorted me out with a great tuktuk driver. Plus the ability to do my washing there was a great help. ATM's just around the corner too. Thanks for a lovely stay.
We stayed here for one night but would have happily stayed longer! 10 minutes in a tuk tuk from jaipur junction and only 15 min walk into the pink city. Not the easiest address to find but once the tuk tuk driver asked around we had no problems getting there (100inr from station). The room was VERY clean and well equipped with AC, kettle, TV and hot water shower. Despite being just off the main road it was very quiet at night and we slept well. Breakfast (extra 150 inr) was continental - toast, cereal, juice, fruit, yogurt tea and coffee which suited us just fine. Amrita was very friendly and welcoming and told us about local places to visit. There is also a security man who keeps an eye on things and makes sure guests are back before locking up at night. All in all a perfect place to stay while seeing the sights of jaipur, we definitely recommend Magpie Villa! …
Do not even think about staying anywhere else! The friendly welcome and personable service made us feel at home. It really felt as though nothing was too much trouble and we were part of the family. All our needs were taken care of and the room was spotlessly clean. Make sure you take the buffet continental breakfast, a steal at 150 RPS for fruit, hot drinks, cereals and toast.
