Amar Niwas Guest House & Restaurant
Ranked #86 of 196 Jodhpur B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2017

The location of the hotel is nice, in the blue old city and close enough to the Fort. The view from the rooftop is great as well. However when we were there (october 2017), the guesthouse was with work in progress and therefore there was dust everywhere, and the owner was just continuing his work over our heads when we were sitting on the terrace, not the best way to chill. Also we found that the owner was quite a cheapskate : the check-out was at 9 (and it was impossible to check out later while the guesthouse was empty except for us and there were no other guests coming afterwards) and we asked if we could leave the bags for the day before our evening train : it was only possible until noon (what's the use of that ? First time we see that, be that in India or in other countries in which we've travelled), and also we would have had to pay something for using electricity, toilets, etc. for the time that we would have spent in the guesthouse premises after checking out. He warned us that the wifi password would be changed at the time of the check-out, and indeed when we took our breakfast after 9 (for which we paid for by the way...) there was no wi-fi indeed (which was poor indeed). Also we were not given soap, toilet paper, and we had only one towel for two.

Room Tip: Just go elsewhere

hi Sylvain
thanks for writing a review for us
as your review itself reflects that you were trying to deal with us in different manner .
as per your booking with us you book " 2nd Oct '17 Small Budget Room INR 262.50 " and want to spend extra 15 hours after check- out with all free facilities.
on booking we provide free WiFi ,free towel .free welcome drinks ,free toiletry etc. how can we give you all this for free after check-out.I think utility charge is applicable all over world .so its not a new term for guest like you who are traveling a lot
as you mention in month of October we were doing renovation work and to host you we stop our work for one day .second day after your check-out our workers starts their work in another room interior so it was continuous in your presence we believe for that you must not comp-lend ,but after every thing if your stay was not comfortable we are sorry for that .
but if you realize the situations TripAdvisor gives us a second chance to edit your review

I showed up super early in the morning from an overnight stay, and despite the "it's ok to show up early" on hostelworld.com it was a bit of a problem with them. You should also know that they charge for the internet, which isn't listed online.

The rooms were comfy, staff helps you with any info you want (even if a bit of a hard sell on taking a guided tour), and the food is super delicious from their kitchen.

I have been there with my one travel friend and with her friend for 1 day/night stay at 31st dec 2016. We have booked this guest house using goibibo app standing right in the place.

It was good experience being there, guest house is running by one jodhpur family and uncle/aunt are so kind and friendly.

As it is budget hotel do not expect too much out of it, we have booked because my main purpose was staying at night so we had took 2 bed room with shared bathroom.

Main and most important thing staying there is you will be in old Jodhpur and you will get chance to have a walk around that blue street in morning if you are photographer and traveler. Not goof place for tourist I will say as they will not like those old area which is little dirty.

Overall its good, you can go ahead staying there.

Room Tip: in old jodhpur, near clock tower, near mehrangarth fort
