The best place to stay in India

2/10 Poor

Inauthentic and Profit Driven Homestay
The host was mostly on his phone and did not seem interested in talking to us. When I told his wife that my partner and I were unmarried she gave a mean look that made me feel uncomfortable and like she was judging us without understanding the culture we come from. Besides the meals offered, nothing else was offered to really make it an authentic homestay which gives the whole experience the feeling of a very over-priced hotel. We ended up just sitting in our hut most of the time trying to use the WiFi which barely functioned. And on top of all of this the food made both of us sick with diarrhea, stomach cramps, and shivers. My partner also had a headache which could be unrelated but the food was definitely the cause of my sickness because I had diarrhea a few hours after each time we ate. The food tasted delicious but I regret eating it due to the sickness after. I would definitely not recommend this “homestay” to anyone because it is not an authentic homestay. We’ve both done homestays in Peru and Thailand and have never encountered this type of dishonesty like we have here. We were the only ones staying at the time so maybe they just didn’t care but the only cultural exchange besides the overpriced meals that we got was when he briefly showed us weaving techniques but then it was soiled when he tried to pressure us into buying the rugs and what not. I don’t really know what else to say but I just hope anyone reading this will choose somewhere more honest.

Authentic rural homestay - not a hotel
This was our best experience in two weeks traveling. There is no proper A.C. so you might want to sleep outside like the family does. We played with the kids and cooked some bread over the fire. Dinner is the whole family sitting on rugs outside eating great farm food. We rode out to see antelope, flamingos, and a random monkey. Then we tried pottery the old fashioned way. We hiked to watch the sun set. This is a really nice family and a chance to see how people actually live, but if you like cushy hotels it may not be your thing. Great conversation with sons.

Wonderful Homestay close to Jodhpur
If you're looking for a place to stay in Jodhpur - think again and stay here instead. Our experience at this homestay was the absolute highlight of our trip. You cannot find a nicer family, and they make the guests feel part of the community! We were able to travel to Jodhpur during the day for a visit, and spend more time at the homestay in the evening.

A perfect countryside homestay......
Prajapati's are great hosts! The place is out of the city, about an hour from Mehrangarh Fort, but our two night stay there was totally worth it. A perfect home stay, you almost live like the Prajapati family. The village safari was also very nice, we got to learn a lot from

Authentic, welcoming homestay
Staying with Chhotaram and his family was a phenomenal experience. We were able to cook, play, eat, dress, and laugh in such an authentic setting. You truly are welcomed and treated as part of the family. While we were only able to stay for a single night, it was the most fulfilling experience we could have imagined - a village safari, desert sunset, amazing food and company. For anyone looking for an unforgettable time in India, this should be your first choice!

Favorite part of our trip to india!
We are so glad to have found this place through Tripadvisor! The perfect village/indian homestay experience we were looking for. The place is about 20km away from Jodhpur city, a bit tricky to find also since we arrived at night, but well worth the effort. The place looks just as good, if not better than in photos. We love the little huts- the place is great - good, clean, comfortable rooms (with warm blankets and clean bedding), a decent bathroom, great food, beautiful common areas and a warm and hospitable family. It is a perfectly-sized compound, enough room to walk around and enjoy. The wifi is available in the common area and not the rooms, which was a welcome change and opportunity to relax without technology. We arrived late night, around 11pm, but were welcomed very well, and served freshly cooked dinner. Chhotaram's wife, Mamata and sister-in-law cook delicious vegetarian food over a traditional stove and it is a pleasure to see. The food is tasty, every meal is a feast, they make sure we are 100% full and are very generous with servings. Chhotaram is an excellent host. Very personable, sincere and knows how to treat guests. We all loved our stay here, many thanks also to the nice family behind it. Our length of stay was just right - 3 nights and 2 full days, but I personally would've loved to stay longer and definitely wish to come back!

"True taste of rural living in Rajasthan"
I booked Chottaram`s home-stay with the anticipation of getting to experience the rural taste of Rajasthan and I was not wrong with my selection. Now settled overseas, but originally form eastern India am aware of the culture and traditional life of rural India and I am very happy that I selected this home-stay. They provide every facility that an urban dweller requires. Although there is no newspaper (hardcopy) but who needs when you have access to wifi. May be the food is not served on expensive china but the taste of food cooked on clay burner on wood fire makes food more tastier. Rooms are naturally ventilated and made with clad and straw chips making the room cooler on a hot day and pleasant on a cold day. Bed and blankets were clean. Finally, the hospitality of the whole family will get full marks.
