The King suite (Lord Ganesh room) we had was on the top floor. View from the room was very nice: the fort. Size of the room: ca. 4x5 metres. Bathroom normal size. Beautifully decorated room, but no suite. Location okay, but there are better locations closer to the main market. Badly or actually nót managed place. Owners are totally not interested in what is happening in the hotel. Our room has not been cleaned. And we had no hot water in the evenings. Nepali staff is friendly and are trying their best, but often had to say ‘not available’ when it came to the menu.

Our family of 4 adults just spent 3 nights at this central Havelli. Down an alley off the Main Street, it was still quite noisy at times from a nearby mosque, street dogs & motorbikes. You can only reach it by tuk tuk. The rooms were smaller than expected & the stairs very steep, but the Havelli is charming & has a small roof top with a view of the fort, but many other places do too. Vijays local restaurant about 10 mins walk away on the road to the clock tower serves the most amazing lassis & warm buffalo milk at night. And we had the best hot showers to date in India! Overall we enjoyed our stay but daily fresh towels & topping up of toilet paper without having to ask would have been welcome.

We really enjoyed staying here: The very helpful Ganesh, wonderful roof top view, and location to the rest of the city all excellent. Organising meals can be a little hit and miss and I think you have to prepare them in advance if you want to eat. That said things can be organised very quickly. We met the owner once, he was very helpful, and keen to provide safety advice about local tourist touts (though I thought the city was quite safe really). There are lots of stairs to the upper floors, and this may not suit older people, also be aware that taxi cars can not make it down the narrow streets and lanes to the hotel, so you have to use a tuk tuk (which is fine). Very clean and comfortable, attractive exterior, good wifi, but the property is down an alley way, which may appear

Despite arriving much earlier than expected we were welcomed warmly by owner Mr Joshi, who we didn't see again during our three-night stay. From then we were left in the capable hands of Ganesh, who carried our bags up the vertiginous stairs to our top-floor room, served us food and drink at all ours of the day and night and regaled us with wonderful stories of his home in Nepal and his complicated romantic entanglements! Our room (Lord Ganesh) was like an eagle's lair, with dual aspect views towards the fort and over the blue city. Imaginatively decorated with interesting Indian artefacts, it was generous, light and airy, with good clothe-hanging facilities and a large comfortable bed. The en-suite was clean and everything worked! From the tasty pakoras we had on our arrival,

Greeted on arrival by the old mumma and the wonderful, Ganesh, with a cup of tea. After the hair raising tuktuk ride this was most welcome. Our rooms were big, comfortable and clean. Which was great as I was sharing with my 70 year old mother. The historic homestay is atmospheric and takes you back to old India days. Just be aware of the narrow stairs up to the rooms and the roof top eating area. We spent sunset on the roof over looking the blue city, drinking cold Kingfisher beer. Ganesh, the young man who works here, is lovely. Couldn't be more helpful and friendly. He really made our stay with his stories from his hometown of Nepal. The owner's young son set of fireworks for us one night. And the food? Wonderful! Delicious, tasty curries for dinner and mouthwatering banana

We just spent one night here and feel just like heaven. We had a great private night on the rooftop. The owner and his family are very friendly. The room is very comfortable and nice. It located in the heart of the blue city which allows us to walk around easily.

We just checked out of this wonderful place. If you want to smell, taste, feel and live through real flavors of jodhpur then do stay at this place. It's stayed right in the famously blue roofed 'basti' that the mehrangarh fort overlooks. I'm trying and adding a few photos to give an idea. We stayed at ganesha room and it was extremely tastefully decorated just like the rest of the property. The view was nice, room was professionally clean and spacious. Staff was excellent and so were the owners facing us. Don't forget to visit their rooftop restaurant at night. The view of the fort is unhindered and brilliant.

Tucked away behind a busy bazaar road, this place was absolutely lovely to stay in. Great sized room with ensuite, rooftop restaurant is a highlight! We had an Indian cooking lesson for lunchtime which was great, I would highly recommend it! I would definitely recommend this place to stay in Jodhpur.

We had a wonderful stay at Juna Mahal. We were greeted by Ganesh who helped us carry our bags to our room (Ganesha Room) on the top floor of the haveli. We were delighted to find that it was decorated in a “medieval” Indian sort of way, but still very modern. You get lots of natural light in this room! Ganesh was a great host while we were there! The roof top view from this property is unbelievable. We didn’t want to leave because of it! It’s so incredibly picturesque and there are 360 views of all of Jodhpur. If you’re up early enough, the kids at the school across the way might catch a glimpse of you and wave hi! Bring ear plugs!!! There are probably around 5 mosques that do morning prayer at 5-6am nearby. We didn’t know this until after our first night, but slept with

First we want to thank from our heart and to say that Joshi and his wife have been very friendly and that we had fantastic time during . Joshi has invited us to visit and to have a dinner before opening in his new "Gem" , the Raj Mandir , wich is a very beautiful haveli with fantastic view from the rooftop to Mehrangarth Fort . In Juna Mahal we had a large and brightful room called" Lord Ganesh" ,with antiques furnitures and photos ,with a balcony and access to a terrasse . A young man called Ganesh really took care of us very kindly , and Dilip cooked very well and even proposed us to bring a table and the food in the room at night for dinner .Joshi organised for us a visit to the Bishnois villages , and also our trip by car to Pushkar . Overall the kindness of all the
