I was at Vino's guest house on recommendation of a friend and luckily enjoyed my stay as prior to my arrival I was worried about the place. It was neat and clean. The owner Vino is a jolly happy fellow and welcomes every visitor with a broad smile. He is a storehouse for local information and history of Rajasthan, especially Bikaner.
He also operates a camel and desert safari agency and surprisingly he has many a recommendations in various guide books and websites like tripadvisor.com. He credits this to his long experience in this field and his love for desert. He caters individually to every client and this is sure to be remembered by everyone who meets him even once.
free cooking classes, free wifi, free pickup from arrival point, free info on history and surrounding regions.
200yr old residence of the former King's Prime Minister now running as a hotel for the last 12yrs, has been rightly described in the Lonely Planet Guide as the funkiest place in Bikaner. Has an excellent aura around it. Rooms vary in size and quality though, so look around first. We stayed in Room No 120 which is on the 3rd floor, had 6 windows and plenty of warm winter sunshine.
The only slightly bad point though was the sluggish service, which is probably to be expected from a family run place.

Not to be confused with Bhanwar Niwas Hotel, which is a totally different place.
Royal touch. Nice rooms.
It is not really "deluxe" but more a cheap place to stay. We payed 150 Rupees for a double....and wow, we had a tv :-)
Live as in your home. For comfortable and secure stay with Traditional cultured host. You will get opportunity to spend your time with a Indian family of well educated person's such as Doctor, Lecturer. Opportunity to have a close look of their life style, customs, culture, hospitality and rituals. Delicious Rajasthani food. Well Appointed rooms with modern amenities. Beautiful City View from Balcony. Volunteer Opportunity...Highly Recommended.
I liked the hospitality and the kindness of the owners. Not just professional hospitality, but really interested. Beautiful City View from Balcony. Dance space available.
