Fodor's Expert Review Pratap Bhawan Home Stay

Jamnalal Bajaj Marg, Jaipur, Rajasthan, 302001, India

Perfect for foodies, wildlife enthusiasts, and those who like to engage with locals, this cozy homestay, in the upscale C-Scheme residential area, is run by an energetic young couple, the Rathores—one a naturalist who runs wildlife tours, the other a food enthusiast who offers cooking and rangoli (a form of folk art) classes. Rooms are simple and modern but comfortable and very clean, with coordinated color schemes and large bathrooms; the upstairs rooms have a rooftop patio. Outside there's a lush garden with a swing. A simple but enriching continental or Indian breakfast is included, and dinner is an option that's well worth taking up. The homestay is a little hard to locate, so call for directions before arriving.
