This is a beautiful heritage hotel and very good value for money. The staff were very attentive and the general atmosphere is very laid back - its a lovely place to return to after the hubbub of Jodhpur. A little room tip - wifi is available in the public areas, but not in the rooms. However we were in room...

This lovely small hotel is one of the best places we have stayed throughout 3 trips around India. We first stayed for 2 nights in a standard room overlooking the courtyard, and thought it was good - beautifully decorated, the bed was comfortable, bathroom very spacious, shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. We had to be at...

If there is one thing that we (my wife and me) would distinctly remember from our Jodhpur visit, it would be our stay at Ratan Vilas. Words would not be enough to describe the way we got pampered during our stay at this place. Right from the time we got a pick-up from the bus-stand to the time we got...

While it was certainly very much value for money, that is just the tip of the iceberg for the story of Ratan Vilas in Jodhpur. The owners have put together graciousness and hospitality in a captivating cocktail with their warmth, attention to detail, and an attitude which was welcoming without being over obtrusive. The hotel extended a courtesy pick-up from...

We loved the Ratan Vilas in Jodhpur! We stayed there in summer 2012 for two nights during our trip around India. A very nice welcome, great restaurant, and very spacious rooms added to our delight. A/C worked great, and the big bathroom with good shower couldn't be any better. Breakfast was quite good, too. And free wifi is included. And...

lovely green lawns and a swimming pool, unfortunately not heated and the weather was chilly! Breakfast was good,, with eggs to order, a selection of fruit and toast, held in a marquee on the edge of the lawn. The room was comfortable and the shower good, with hot water. I wish that we had had dinner there. The staff were...

What’s not to like about this hotel?! We were greeted with beautiful friendly smiles as soon as we drove up the driveway, our rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean and the food was absolutely delicious! The entire hotel had a very homey feel - if we didn’t have a full itinerary planned, I would have been quite happy to laze...

Comfortable & spacious room, elegant building, great amenities, a real bathroom with a beautiful bathtub (not the norm in India!) and staff that could not do enough to make one feel welcome.

Ratan Vilas is a beautiful hotel converted from an old family home. It is truly stunning with gorgeous furnishings, enormous rooms and bathrooms (our room had a huge sunken marble bath), a restaurant serving delicious food and a luxurious outdoor pool area. The bedrooms are decorated with Annouki fabrics, and the water is solar heated -both of which says a...
