This household has always been welcoming guests and enjoying giving others hospitality for many years. We remember when we were very young boys our Grandpa hosted many parties of all the important local family including the Army, Police, Politicians and Royalty. We remember walking down the road being welcomed by the sound of laughter and music and we knew Grandpa was having another one of his parties! We have carried on this tradition ever since by welcoming guests and hoping that they experience some of the culture and traditions that happen throughout the year in an old traditional house including Diwali - festival of lights -, Holi - festival of colours - and many other celebrations.

Well.... This place was an absolute find! A truly wonderful place to stay. All credit to Govind and Mukta who were both treasures in equal measures. For a start 7 of us turned up instead of the 6 booked. Not a problem. Rooms were allocated very quickly with minimal fuss. (Rare in India) We were given our room keys whilst the passports were dealt with and probably saved 45 mins. (Very rare in India) Rooms were clean and comfortable with hot water too. The WiFi also works. The place has a wonderful roof terrace where we were all fed and watered with some excellent local food. It has a very homely feeling to the place. Nothing was too much trouble at all. The hosts were amazing (and Chilli the dog) At about 10pm we realised our train had been cancelled the next morning. 10mins later we had a minibus sorted to take us 90kms the next day. I was genuinely sad to leave here, as a lot of accommodation in India leaves a lot to be desired. I will revisit Jodhpur one day and stay here for longer. If it isn’t available I wouldn’t stay elsewhere. I think that says it all. Many many thanks. Steve, Tim, Steve, Steve, Paul, Jonathan and Mike.

Charming rooms set around an open courtyard. The staff are friendly and helpful and can organise trips to villages and wildlife. The guesthouse is outside the city centre but an easy walk through the market to the town centre. Food is available in the small restaurant . The only thing bad is the GH is very close to a suburban railway and there I see little respite to the load hoots and screeches through the night

Thank you very much for your review. It means a lot to us. Unfortunately we cannot do much about the train line crossing our area (500 meters away on north). We wish you happy journey. Warm regards Govind, Mukta and Family

I stayed at Durag Niwas for two weeks and had a wonderful time. As a woman travelling alone, I felt very safe and the staff were very helpful. There is a friendly atmosphere and it’s easy to meet other people and explore Jodhpur. The room was excellent value and I will definitely be coming back.

We stayed there for only half day.. But everything was best we found.. Warm welcome and smooth check in at 7 am.. Nice cozy room.. Not luxurious but fulfilling all basic necessities.. Got hot water... MS. Mukta very good lady...she guided us very well with city tour and suggested very good eateries like shahi samosa to experience at jodhpur..nice heritage decor.. Next to gau shala ground..so can have morning walk there.. Out side good juice guy selling nice vegetable and herbal juices. We had nice amla pudina orange juice.. Overall very good experience.. Worth every penny spent..

We really glad that you took gave us early checkin because we had train reaching Jodhour early morning. It was good experience in staying in Delux room but twin sharing room was very ok. Thank you for your service. But we felt that breakfast and food was costlier.

Durg Niwas is one of the oldest guesthouses in an area in the vicinity of old Jodhpur. It’s next to a sports complex and is designed like a haveli. Deluxe and Family suite rooms which we got during busy New year week days were good except a few hiccups. It’s a cosy place to enjoy with a good rooftop restaurant.

I didnt plan much time for Jodhpur, about 3 days. My guidebook recommanded the Durag Niwas guesthouse and I went there. From the first moment I was welcomed like a true friend. Its a natural and very familiar house and thats how guests are treated. You will have your peace if you want, but the family is open and friendly and loves helping and talking to you. But be careful, you might get adopted! ;-) I stayed there 11 days, hard to leave. You get the best service and information that you need, feel like being at home. I made two tours organized by the Durag N., one to the Bishnoi-villages, which was great and very interesting. And the other to the Thar village Setrawa including a camel ride, very relaxing, lonely, quiet and natural. You can have a close contact to this family if thats what you like. They have simple good rooms for a good price and fresh prepaired vegi and non-vegi food and do also organize extraordinary sightseeing. I would think there is nothing, you couldnt ask them for. Best of all: you´ll be a friend not just a guest. I would recommand it most for younger people and globetrotters. Many things in Jodhpur I have seen through them, which I surely would not have found on my own and thats what I also heared from other people saying about the Durag Niwas. They also have a website!

I am currently staying at Durag Niwas - as I am volunteering for Sambhali Trust, I will be living here for 2 months. The guesthouse has been recently redecorated and looks amazing - many communal seating places and several rooftops, some with a view of the Jodhpur Fort. I sit up there most nights and read during sunset when it cools down - so relaxing. The family are so hospitable and friendly, and they seem to know everyone in the city so any requests are only a phone call away! I would recommend a visit/time volunteering for Sambhali Trust, which is a women's empowerment charity - it has many projects both here in Jodhpur and in a village called Setrawa 2 hours away. There are many roles - teaching, administration, and even just spending some quality time with the girls - everyone is encouraged to get creative by running workshops and things. I have seen so many success stories and empowered women - very inspirational people and I would recommend this volunteering experience to everyone. If you don't have the time for long-term volunteering you should still visit the projects and see how Sambhali has changed so many lives already!
