Ever dreamt of living like royalty? That dream can now become reality. Jaipur's 300-year-old City Palace has opened its doors to commoners. Sawai Padmanabh Singh is the first Maharaja of Jaipur to offer a stay at his place and come November 23, the Gudliya Suite will be available for bookings on Airbnb.

CNBC-TV18’s Startup Street spoke with Greg Greeley, President-Homes, Airbnb. Greeley, said they are very excited at the opportunity to partner with the royal family and to provide a suite in the City Palace.

Greeley said the proceeds of this will go to Princess Diya Kumari Foundation to help serve and to provide economic empowerment to the women of Jaipur and Rajasthan.

Talking about India, Greeley said, "India has such diverse locations to offer. Different cities and destinations in India are all unique, and the company was delighted to add more and more diverse locations. Airbnb already has 400 heritage sites."
