“5 star homestay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Girisadan Homestay is a wonderful place to stay, very peaceful away from the hubbub of the city. The rooms are spotlessly clean, large and airy. There was lots of hot water and we had a lovely balcony to relax on after a day's sightseeing. The Captain and Giri were delightful hosts always happy to help and offer ideas.
We ate in the homestay as the food was so good.
The homestay is only an easy 20minute walk away from the old city with "proper" pavements all the way.
If arriving b train make sure that you get a trishaw from the prepaid booth as this will only cost around 40-50rupees.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would would not hesitate to recommend Girisadan.

Dear Guest,
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay here with us. We will be more than delighted to have you over again and get the chance to pamper you more! One thing that most of our guests like is we are not too far and not too close to the chaotic and hustle bustle of this town! There is absolute tranquility in the Nights & Early mornings to which you wake up and energize yourself for the rest of the day!

Now we have 3 more now rooms added to the terrace with an open balcony, overlooking our new Patio (In house dining area). Every room has been made with much open spaces to give you a feel of home …

Now you will not need a taxi/Auto as we can have you picked up. We have a dedicated tuk-tuk driver who helps us get our guests home. This has been done to for your safety / convenience & to avoid sabotage your booking with us, as the auto/taxis tend to steal our clients for commissions.

Hope to have you over soon. Till then have a wonderful new year ahead…

Best Wishes
Capt S. K. Singh (Owner)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Business once again took me to Jaipur and I had the pleasure of staying with the Captain and Giri at Girisadan. As always, they could not do enough to make my stay comfortable and productive. One example; I was going to be out for dinner and told them so. But by the time my meetings were over, I was just too tired to go out with my hosts. I arrived back at the homestay at 8:15 exhausted and expecting to go hungry that night. Not at all, the Captain would not have it and a delicious cooked meal was produced from scratch for me even that late.
Try it, you'll love it.

We stayed 2 nights at Girisand and thoroughly enjoyed it. Travelling under very hot weather made it even more special to have a clean room and bathroom, AC and fan in working order and a veranda to spend part of our evening. The Captain and his wife were the most charming hosts and accommodated our every wish! The food was delicious and the calm atmosphere really helped us to catch our breath in this fantastic but hectic country! Probably our best stay in a guest house in India. Many thanks again to our hosts and their crew.

Dear Guest,

We should be the ones thanking you. It was indeed a pleasure to serve you and charm you with whatever little my family and crew could do.

Summers can get a little hot here and guests need a breather in this hectic country as you said. Understanding all this we have our open balconies with potted plants and cozy lounges. I hope you visit us again and again and also tell your fellow friends to seek this Oasis in the land of Rajasthan !

Regards

Dear Guest,

It is always our pleasure to take care of our guests. Glad that you enjoyed our home cooked food. Not one of our guests have left dissatisfied. We look forward for you to return and give us a chance to pamper you.

Now that we have made a new Dining room called "the patio", all meals are served there.

Guest Favorites: Early morning breakfast on the patio watching the sun rise right in front of you is a good way to start your day !

Hope to see you here with us soon ...

We were at Girisadan for 2 nights. This homestay was clean and the food ok however out of our 8 stop-overs this was our least favourite. Our main concern was the lack the personal touch. The hosts never introduced themselves and more importantly in their literature breakfast stated 7-10am, however we were told 8-10am (or 10.30) when we said we need to leave at 8am, the staff after checking with the owner told us 8am will be the earliest, we then asked for a packed breakfast and this was refused, which is a first for us!! It was only after I asked to personally speak to the owner did they say we could have breakfast at 7.30.

No tea, coffee or water in the room, when we did ask for a tea it was charged for, also it was stated no food or drink was allowed to be brought in, again a first for us.

In general we didn’t feel welcome and seemed they were looking to make money wherever possible.

Dear Ma’am,

First of all the least I can do is to apologies to you and your better half for making you have such an experience. It is seldom that we do not introduce ourselves to the guests and exchange a conversation. Circumstances arise and sometimes we also get caught up in our personal lives.

We go a step forward to satisfy our guests. From receiving them personally from the Train Station or the air port to packing Breakfast for them if an early check out. We also recommend nice places just like we did for you (We had sent you for a dinner at The Rambagh Palace Hotel, the table was booked by us) you must understand that we are a home stay and thus we have our limitations (and house rules). None the less we do what will be best for our guests.

Now we have tea kettles in all the room. If still guests want to order a different kind of tea we obviously will charge. I fail to understand why anyone would expect anything for free. Please don’t get me wrong.

About bringing food from outside, there are some house rules but we are again never uptight. Our guests have felt like eating Mc Donald’s Burger or a Dominos Pizza and we have ordered it for them...

This is a Home and we treat guests as family . . . Hope you will come again and stay with us. The next time, i am sure you will change your min about us.

Your next stay here with us in complimentary!
Once again I am extreamly sorry for giving you such an experience.

Best Wishes
Capt S. K. Singh (Owner)
