I had a wonderful, albeit short stay at Jaswant Niwas...my family and i enjoyed the personal attention of the owners, Hemant Raj Singh and Mrs Leena Singh. The food prepared was mouth watering and plentifully. The menu was not repeated and they even made efforts to serve mirchi badas and kachories during tea time! A must stay when in Jodhpur.
Mr Hemant himself was waiting for us right at the main gate. A big teddy bear kind of personality in his traditional white kurta, He welcomed us with a warm smile and took our car inside his personal parking. I could not imagine all that young energetic conversation was made by this person; He is indeed young at heart. He helped my dog to be at complete peace by showing her the big lawn he has got in the house. This place has a big traditional Rajasthani corridor which is not very common these days in big cities. By now my mind connected and acknowledged the fact that this is why Rajasthani’s are called most humble people on earth. Rooms are cozy and very ethnic with all the modern amenities. I could not believe interiors and the garden is maintained by the family themselves. When I arrived at this place it was already 5:30 pm evening. We were served Indian masala tea with the good warm conversation of one to two hours. Mr and Mrs Hemant are so welcoming and warm. Mrs. Hemant is such a plant lover, stylish and creative person. Every piece of the decorated corner, the little shrine, little tables and interiors of this place are so traditional yet so modern in their own way.…
The experience with Jaswant Niwas started right from the time I was looking for a decent stay in Jodhpur. We were a family of 10 people with the age group of 4 to 60 so I was clearly looking at a family-friendly and budget-friendly place. After doing a lot of r&d, I stumbled upon Jaswant Niwas. I checked the reviews and almost all of them were positive. I checked the pictures of the property and everything looked beautiful. Then I got in touch with the owner of the place, Hemantji and he turned out to be a gem of a person. I liked the fact that he was pretty straight forward as well as a warm and friendly person. While most people in his position would only be interested in the number of days we intend to spend at their property, Hemantji took a keen interest in our itinerary and made helpful suggestions. He even helped us arrange cabs from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur at the last moment. Now, coming to the property, it is a lovingly crafted place. Every room is beautifully done and every nook and corner of the room delights you with something creative. Also, each room has a different look and feel therefore it doesn't feel templatized. A lot of thought must have gone into every little thing in the room. The linens, the furniture, the quilts/blankets, the artefacts, the bathrooms - everything was tastefully chosen and/or done. Even the beds where quite comfortable as the mattresses were not too soft and not too hard. Unlike artificial air fresheners used by hotels, there was a subtle and likeable fragrance in each room with the help natural air fresheners. While the breakfast menu is deceptively simple, it delights you with its tasty and homely flavours. Hemantji's wife was also a wonderful host and it reflected in the way she and her staff made us delicious breakfast. The way Hemantji and his wife hosted us, we felt that we've come to a relative's place and not at some paid accommodation. Pet lovers will love this place, even more, thanks to Dizzy, their adorable dachshund. On the other hand, even if you're not a pet person, the dog is extremely friendly and won't even bark at you. While I would 100% recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Jodhpur I have a small request. Please respect the place which Hemantji has made so lovingly. With all due respect to people reading this review, please don't abuse this place and help maintain its beauty and dignity. Because places like these are very, very few and therefore they need to be treated with the utmost care, respect, and love. Hemantji, if you're reading this, thank you for everything. Hope this place brings you great guests, interesting stories, beautiful memories, and a flourishing business. …

GOOD STAY AND GOOD PEOPLE. VERY ECONOMIC AND CLOSE TO AIRPORT FOR HUSSLE FREE STAY. Happy with the service and also felt very good during our stay. Nice environment. Good breakfast. Easy to commute. And also good hospitality
This was our second visit at Jaswant Niwas and it was again a very wonderful experience. Be it the well decorated rooms or Mr Hemant and his family's warm hospitality, everything was more than perfect. Not to forget Mr Hemants's guidance about places to see, shopping options, restaurants to try in Jodhpur always comes very handy.
Is it a Hotel? Is it a Resort? NO. It is a Home away from Home and the Hosts are truly a wonderful and likeable people. Mr.Hemant and family have this Homestay at a stone's throw distance from The Umaid Bhavan Palace. But I would rather stay here than go to the Palace. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully done. Hygiene is kept in the top most drawer by them. The breakfast menu is simple but excellent. A conversation with the family about things to do in Jodhpur is a must. Their advice and guidance is spot on Would we go there again? Definitely
Had the pleasure of staying in this lovely homestay. It was extremely neat n clean.The hosts were very caring of even our smallest requirements.overall a very memorable stay.The location is extremely good.The most gracious of hosts.. and most informative too... be it places to eat or places to visit. I would love to recommend Jaswant Niwas to all the people looking for an authentic HOMESTAY.
Jaswant Niwas Jodhpur is a great place to stay for solo travelors as well as families. I am a college professor and I spent here three nights in Dec 2019. I am more than happy and satisfied with what I experienced. What I found in Jaswant Niwas Jodhpur exceeded what I expected. Here are the reasons: 1- The whole place is immaculately clean. 2- The entire hosting family are always there with their guests looking after them and making sure needs are met. 3- The food is made to perfection be it native or continental. 4- Owner treats all the guests with utmost respect and care. He guides and gives advice when requested. He and his wife took me with their own car to buy gifts to my family from places I requested. 5- They provide services beyond what is required or expected from them. Guests can call for their help and support before, during, and after the occupancy period. They are beyond the call of duty. 6- The hosts are highly educated and acutely intelligent. They taught me a lot about India, Indian history, and Indian culture. They do everything from their hearts and with great humility. I am a world traveler and I have never felt so much at home or received such warm and genuine treatment as I found in Jaswant Niwas Jodhpur.…
Me and my family ( 3 adults and 2 kids) were there for 3 nights and had a wonderful time in Jodhpur as Mr. Hemant Ji and his family ensured to take care of our needs with great warmth. The rooms were super clean and decorated very well as Hemant Ji and his wife have given attention towards the minute details in ensuring that their house stands out and gives a lively feeling. The other best part of our stay was piping hot breakfast which had a very homely taste and it was accompanied by wonderful discussion on various topics with Hemant Ji and other guests, this also allowed us to get information directly from our fellow travelers who had the first hand experience of Jodhpur city. I would like to thank Mr Hemant Ji and his family for being such a wonderful host. Regards, Amol.
