In a country traditionally known for its hospitality, Ratan Vilas is one of the few hotels in India upholding this spirit. Aesthetic, native, laden with modern day comforts along its wonderfully courteous staff and reasonable prices, makes a stay in Ratan Vilas truly special. Undoubtedly one of my best experiences with the hospitality industry in India.

We absolutely loved our short time here - the best hotel we stayed in during our 14 day trip to Rajasthan. The service was fantastic, both the manager and the other staff could not do enough to help. The hotel itself is very clean, comfortable and peaceful. And the food, oh the food, was so fantastic. We highly recommend this...

So peaceful in the heart of the city. Lovely pool that you could spend all day in. Nice garden where lovely food is severed at the desired relaxed pace. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to all.

We loved our 3 nights here. The main thing is that the staff are very nice. The hotel is very peaceful and the rooms are well laid out around a central courtyard. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant on a couple of occasions and the breakfast was superb. Definitely recommend this place :-)

We stayed here for 2 nights. On our first night, we had a Superior room, which was lovely. The room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large and very nice. On our second night, we had to move to a Budget room as the Superior room was booked. The room was nice, although the bathroom was a...

My wife and I stayed for two nights. We enjoyed our stay and were very happy with our choice. The hotel is very elegant and located well about 5 km. from the fort. It is an oasis in another busy and noisy Indian city. There's a beautiful pool which we unfortunately didn't use as it was still cold when we...

Staff is fantastic. Hotel is charming in a park quiet, out of noisy streets. You need a rickshaw to go downtown but given how noisy and dirty the city is you are better off staying in the hotel at night. During the day, dont take a driver for 4 hours. Just use the drop off to jasant tada, walk from...
