My first brush with this homestay was not a pleasant one. I had called up to ask how far it was from the railway station. The person who picked up was very annoyed and disconnected the phone after telling me not to bother him as he didn't have time. Funny thing is, I never got to know whom I had spoken to as all those I met at the homestay itself were quite friendly and helpful, be it the owner Mrs Joshi or her staff. This is a very old (they claim 500 years old) haveli that has been tastefully turned into a homestay. All the rooms are unique with vintage decorations and furniture which add character. Before you ask, the bathrooms are modern with most amenities available! The rooftop restaurant gives a good view of the Mehrangarh fort while you enjoy your food. However, the stairs are very steep and since there is no lift, it's better to avoid this property if you have problems in your knees. Mind that the streets outside are really narrow (as it is located in the old city) and you cannot take a car there. The only way to get to it is by auto or on foot. But staying in the old city has its own joys, especially of the gastronomical nature! Jodhpur's famous Chaturbhuj Rameshchandra, which makes the most delicious Gulab Jamuns, and Moolji Sweets, known for its snacks and jalebis, are less than 500 metres away. You can shop till you drop for sarees in the close vicinity of the hotel and there are quite a few reasonably priced handicrafts shops also. In fact, once you shop here, the touristy market at Ghanta Ghar seems overpriced. You can walk to the Mehrangarh Fort in about 20 minutes from the hotel. Though some may consider it a bit overpriced, Juna Mahal is an amazing place to stay if you wish to experience the old Jodhpur.

While traveling with friends through India we spent three wonderful nights at the Juna Mahal. The hotel is very nicely furnished with an eye for details and from the roof top you have a good view over the city. The hotel is centrally located so you can explore the old town and the Mehrangarh fort by walking. One morning we also did the blue city walking tour organized by the hotel. The tour is highly recommended as the great tour guide will show you many things you might probably have overseen and provide you many background information. On the roof top you can also enjoy delicious food freshly cooked. Arjun will make sure that all food wishes will be fulfilled.

It's in the old city surrounded by the historical places everyone around is so helpful especially anty who runs this place is so charming and provided us with her testy delicacies. Rooms are clean and armored with all the modern facilities. The interiors are worth mentioning it's an unbelievable experience to stay at such a majestic place.

The hotel is in city area and so we understand that car will not reach there. But the local autos also don't know the hotel and struggle a lot in narrow zig-zag lanes of the city. Even Google Maps fail here.
Also, the area has lot of stray dogs who get aggressive at times and make it difficult to get in or out of hotel. When we reached hotel at 9 in night after visit to city, almost 10 dogs came out in the lane and started barking. We took shelter in shop and the shopkeeper used a bat to shoo them away. Next morning when we wanted to get out at 8, dog was sitting on the door and refused to move away.
Lastly, food. We had lunch there and we decided we won't eat here anymore due to slow service and tasteless food. But in night out kid asked for food as soon as we came back to hotel. Since we were not interested in going again to dog lanes, we asked for pasta from hotel cook. When we didn't got it after long, my wife went to the rooftop restaurant and saw that pasta was not prepared by cook. There she found that he was planning to use a pasta sauce that expired a year ago!!! That sums up food quality and standard at the place.
Next morning we had our breakfast outside and we left the hotel to find another accommodation.
Only good part was staff Arjun was helpful. He brought milka nd biscuit for kid from market in night. Thanks to him!!

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful stay in the heart of Jodhpur's blue city. This haveli is hidden between narrow streets and alleyways of the oldest parts of the city. The haveli's entrance conceals a beautiful interior and several floors of rooms, artefacts, and interesting adornments. The rooftop view at sunrise and sunset is lovely, and our favourite spot (apart from our room) was the dining terrace with the umbrella - we monopolized that space during our stay.

The owner, Joshi, was very responsive to our group's inquiries and helped us arrange a tuktuk the evening we arrived (despite our train being significantly delayed). Joshi's son greeted us and checked us in at the haveli and Arjun helped us with our luggage. All staff were friendly and immensely helpful. Joshi's son advised us on the worthwhile sites to explore, helped organize a tour of Bishnoi village (highly recommend), and arranged laundry services. Arjun was at our beck and call for all mealtimes, ensuring we received our exact order and a delicious spread (shoutout also to the chef!). Arjun's infectious smile made us feel especially welcome and was a highlight of our stay. The manager of another haveli owned by Joshi gave us an amazing and informative tour of the blue city - can highly recommend as he knows every alleyway and the long history of the area. Joshi also helped one of my friends send a package home (too many lovely things to buy and not enough space in her suitcase), and I felt everyone went out of their way to help us - no matter what it was.

Incredible 470+ year old Haveli, family-run Homestay. Wonderful hosts, gracious and helpful. Stayed in the King suite, highly recommend this room. Its an oasis in the middle of the old part of Jodhpur. Easy to get around, Hosts assist with travel tips and Tuc Tuc arrangements etc. Local people all know it as well, helpful if you get turned around and need to ask directions from locals.... ( google maps is not so helpful in some parts of the Blue City better to ask a kind local). Would definitely go back.

Beautiful Haveli in the heart of the old town.
Super comfortable beds, good shower and fast WiFi all make this a great place to stay.

My hubby left his bag in a restaurant one night and Jimmy (the son) whizzed him back there on his moped to collect it.
Lovely family who will do anything to help!

Juna Mahal is an excellent place to stay in Jodhpur. My brother and I spent 5 nights in the Family Suite / Maharajah Suite with a view on the Fort. The hosts, Joshi and his family, were kind and helpful. Note that you are staying in their house, sharing the space while still having your own intimacy in the room. Juna Mahal is quite centrally located in a residential area of the old city. Amenities were excellent. Only plus could be better wifi.
The price was extremely competitive for the quality of our stay. If I went to Jodhpur again, I would make the same choice.

Hi, As fare as I can remember, I had a king size bed, room about 18 qm, my room at the 1. floor had an outside bathroom, just for this room, 3meters out of the room. Actually no problem. Everything was clean and in a good shape. This house is unique. Breakfast was incl. and has been served at the rooftop. greetings from Germany Bernd

The Hotel does pick up and they drop you closest to the hotel....and there is no car park facility as the lanes are narrow as this is in old city
