“The best hotel in India!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Having spent our fair share of time in hotels in India where we experienced no hot water, unclean facilities, people trying to rip us off and general rudeness, Vinayak Guesthouse was a breath of fresh air!
Greeted by Raman with the hugest smile, we felt like we were coming home and made to feel so welcome by him and his family. The decoration in the hotel was excellent, many of the traditional Indian murals had been painted by Raman's sister and the rooms were spacious and clean with lovely hot water showers!!
The food in the restaurant was delicious and home made - they do the best banana lassi you will find. But what impressed us the most was the time Raman took to give us a map, explain the best itinerary for us, how not to get ripped off by the rickshaw drivers and how much we should pay for things and where the Indians do their shopping.
I would recommend this hotel without a doubt to any one, as you can rely on Raman and his family being the most decent and honest people in India - a very rare thing indeed!

This is one of the best hostels in rajastan! So friendly - Raman is the perfect host!
Nice rooms and very nice decoration! Thank you so much to have treated us a something special! The infrastructure is new and clean and net! The best of all is the roof top and the very nice freshly prepared food! Go on and see you next time

Was in India for two months and stayed twice in Vinayak! Raman is great! He really cares about his guests! The first time we were there during the kite festival and he let us play with the kites on the rooftop, fun! The rooftop is beautiful, food is good (try the big tali!) and they really pay attention to the rooms, nice colours on the walls, pretty paintings and clean! (you don't find that very often in the same price range!) The rooms are very very good value for money!
The next time i had bed in a dorm and these are also very recommendable! There is tv with hbo in every room and the hostel is really close to the bus and trainstation! Really recommended!!

This place is amazing, very clean rooms, very nice location a few hundred yards away from the main area. The rooftop terrace is a nice change to normal hostels with good service and lovely food.

Raman the manager is fantasticand a lovely guy - he picked us up from the bus station arranged all of our taxi/rickshaws and when my wife was ill (nothing to do with the hostel) he even gave us a lift to the train station himself! I can't recommend this place enough!

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.
