We had an incredibly happy time here, staying for two nights. The building is a colonial era bungalow which has been sympathetically enlarged and updated. It is not plush, but for the price extremely good value. The fact that it is family run adds to its charm. The staff are incredibly keen to please. The food was a complete find...

This is a great property, tucked away from the hustle bustle of Jodhpur. Extremely warm hospitality shown by each staff member specially Harish and Jitender and they make sure each part of your stay is comfortable from getting you a local auto to giving you directions, valuable information that locals only have and extending little gestures that go a long...

Charming colonial building in Jodhpur, very clean and well kept. Spacious rooms, excellent service, wonderful patio to have breakfast and dinner. A perfect hideaway from noisy city center. Only negative point: during the dinner we requested a bottle of red wine that turned to be almost undrinkable (probably badly conserved): we asked to change it, and the second one was...

We recently stayed two nights at this wonderful, old, character filled hotel in Jodhpur. The hotel is owned by the Maharaj who we met for drinks and a delightful old man he is. The hotel is set back off the road in a quiet, secluded setting. Our welcome, as always in India, was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was...

What a wonderful oasis of peace, away from the hectic pace of the city! We spent three wonderful days at Ratan Vilas. A large courtyard with pristine pool create exactly the peace you want after a trip through the center and a visit to the fort. In addition, the restaurant is very recommendable. Top!

Just got back from 3 nights here and we strongly recommend a visit to Ratan Vilas. A very quiet location in Jodhpur, but only a short ride both from the airport and into the city.
