Arrived in Ajmer and found this place about 500 metres from the train station. Just off the main road with a sun filled courtyard. No restaurant but they do provide Indian style breakfast, lunch and dinner on request. Great food, Great people and overall an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.
We stayed in an inexpensive first floor room. The upstairs rooms are spacious and elegant and probably an excellent option for the price. We had thought we would stay 2 or 3 nights but we stayed 6. Laloo was so helpful with everything we wanted and nice to talk to. Rajivji took us out to his farm and around the Mayo campus where he went to school. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts on the swing in the courtyard, and Danwanti, Rajivji's wife even took me out shopping for some Indian clothes. The dinners were delicious and you could eat as much as you liked. The last dinner we had there was probably the best meal we've had in India thus far. We both enjoyed talking with Rajivji about Indian culture. In every way we felt more like we were visiting friends than staying in a hotel. ...and we liked playing with the kittens too:). Oh and you can walk to the major sites and the train station quite easily.
The real selling point of this heritage inn is the personal service. The family who run the guesthouse are extremely friendly and I had a unique evening, starting with sampling the delicious and generous thali (variety of smaller dishes), and then listening to the numerous stories of the two brothers with a nice cup of chai whilst a thunderstorm rumbled around us. I rose early to see the lake at dawn and was greeted with breakfast when i returned, before they kindly looked after my backpack as I explored the rest of the sights nearby.
Spent 3 nights here as a base for Pushkar in a double room for 1300 - this was during the camel fair so we hoped to save money whilst visiting the fair via bus. Although quite worn and tired, we had a comfortable stay here and would recommend to anyone stopping in Ajmer, especially as backpackers, or as a base for Pushkar when prices are hiked during the fair. Double room was spacious with a sofa and tv which had movie channels (ideal as I was unwell the day we arrived) and decent sized bathroom with hot water. Hosts were lovely and we took them up on an evening meal which was great - as we stayed during the currency/atm troubles we only had enough to pay rent and for our evening meal by the last night so opted out of breakfast - they gave it to us for nothing however and chai, as well as previously offering us cash to borrow until we found a working ATM. Worth a stay if in Ajmer but don't expect it to be modern and fresh looking. It is also only a few minutes walk from the train station.
Convenient and friendly enough, rooms are overpriced in comparison to similar in Rajasthan so try a get a fair price (probably 25% less than quoted). Has a courtyard where staff can organise a beer. They also do meals that are ok but expensive (plus they add tax), better to go to Mango Masala a 5 minute walk down the road (really tasty & really cheap). Also make sure they leave the wi-fi on, they have a tendency to turn your power and wi-fi off without notice.
