We had a wonderful stay at Shiwam. Raj, the owner, was very welcoming and friendly. He gave us a tour of the hotel faciities when we arrived and told us all about the activities and historic sites of the city. Shivam has the most amazing rooftop, where we had all of our meals, prepared by Raj and his wife. Some of the best food we had in India. Raj and his family are kind and honest people, which creates a very warm and personal atmosphere. We had several great conversations with Raj about cultural differences, spirituality, religion, family etc. Made us feel right at home. The rooms live fully up to the pictures online. It was without a doubt the cleanest place we stayed at throughout our travels.
Had a fantastic breakfast here with my two friends. Delicious food and marvelous cappuccinos. The owner and his wife were so helpful - explained local customs, gave us tips about the city. Lovely people. Will stay here next time I’m in Jodhpur.
We have stayed 4 night here. The food was so good, that's really difficult to fins a good burger in India... And the room was perfect: clean, big and good relation quality-price. The owner treat us really well and he always helped us when we needed. If I visit Jodhpur again I will come back to Shivam Guest House.
You might be tempted to eat here for to a lack of choice. It's why we came here, but I wouldn't return. Food isn't good, I didn't finish my pizza cause it was so greasy and over cooked and not taste good. My friend had the worst chicken burger. Service is meh. No fan for cooling down either.
Unfortunately when we turned up here for our booked room it hadn’t been cleaned and we had to leave. The room was dated (which is fine for a budget room) but the toilet leaked so the bathroom floor was covered in toilet water. And very dirty things in the plughole etc and the sheets covered in hairs and crumbs. So definitely hadn’t been changed for a while.
Best location...close to clock tower and the fort...the highest building around so the view is perfect....the owner is really helpful and so friendly...same for the staff...my room was magic...bug with balcony and bug bathroom ...all decorated in raja style....i highly recommend. ..thanks...ask for the omelett shop at the entrance of clock tower...really good in pure indian style
I chose this accommodation on Jalam's of Trotters camel safari, recommendation. An amazing guesthouse run by a friendly family Delicious meals - freshly cooked meals Neat and clean rooms Good location fort view from the rooftop. Value for money.
In jodhpur night stays are cheaper in guest houses. One of them is Shivam Guest House. It have decent rooms starting from 500 INR for normal rooms to 1500 INR for AC. It have good restaurant having good Indian and other preparations. The only problem is the steps which are bigger than normal. You will get beer here and have a great view of mehrangarh fort and jodhpur old city. Also they have lots of services like day trip around jodhpur, jeep drive to osian, oil massage etc. Try some times.
“I reached at about 4 am in Jodhpur, travelling solo. After reading the reviews decided to book a room for a few hours (to sleep :) ) Raj sir received my phone call at 5am and understanding that im travelling Solo, immediately arranged for a room. After the nap, the breakfast menu was just perfect for someone whose stomach was bombarded with Mirchi and Sabji from jaipur to Jaisalmer :) Not only is he knowledgeable but very humble and courteous. No attitude whatsoever. If you are travelling to Jodhpur and commercial/luxury travel is not your thing, let this be your first option. This guest house features in the Lonely Planet edition of Rajasthan as well. Since thanks Mr Raj for making my trip to Rajasthan a memorable one :) ”
The main guy who runs it, Raj, is great, but not super keen on the rest of staff. The place itself is nice, good common area with the rooftop restaurant but not super loungey (no sofas, etc). Costs roughly 350rupees and prob worth around that. Decent stay.
