We’re a couple on our honeymoon in India, we’ve stayed at different hotels in this price range in Jaipur and Udaipur before coming to Juna Mahal in Johdpur.

This Haveli is beautiful, the location is deep into the blue city which makes for nice adventures and encounters around it, and very close to the sites in Jodhpur. The rooms are small but beautifully arranged. We stayed in the top one right below the roof.

There are serious downsides however:
1. Because our room is on the kitchen floor we had an ant invasion (with thousands of them) and the house attendant did not seem to know what to do about it so proceeded to spray our room profusely...
2. You have to ask for hot water at least 30 minutes ahead of your shower. There is no room cleaning and you need to ask to replenish toilet paper and basic amenities. In the top room where we stayed, the pressure in the shower is super low so you often have to hold the shower button to keep it running.
3. There is nothing to stop the sun to wake you up at 6 am - no curtains to ensure privacy. Our rooms gave on the small terrasse below the roof and we discovered on the second day that people could see us inside when the light was on. Wtf.
4. This is a boutique hotel - but not a home stay. No one talked to us during our stay. The family has long built an empire of hotels and is in Jag Mandir (opposite side of Jodhpur) so we just barely met the mom, and remained in the care of Nepali immigrants, and no one expressed any interest in us at any point.
5. In the end at checkout, there was suddenly a « problem » with the credit card reader and were asked to pay cash (obviously without being given a receipt, a first in India in a serious hotel) and the attendant had no change so demanded we bring the exact amount in small bills.

Overall, it’s a beautiful house. It’s a fun location. The restaurant has a cool view (it’s overpriced but everywhere in jodhpur is, and food is good). But for that price you can get a much better room with functioning bathrooms and a better service pretty much everywhere. It seems it’s trying to be both a boutique hotel and a home stay - and in the end it’s not succeeding at either.

The place is lovely and well decorated, the food is great on their lovely rooftop, and the Nepalese caretaker is accommodating and will look after you like his own family. It's well worth the stay if only for his wonderful company and cooking. 5 stars easily

We had an amazing stay at Juna Mahal. The location was perfect for exploring the blue city, and the fort was a 20 minute walk away. Dillip did a wonderful job making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible, and is a great cook too! Great recommendation for anyone wanting to stay close to the attractions in a clean and comfortable setting.

Had such a good stay at Juna Mahal! It’s located in the old city, about 15 min walking to the clock tower.
Dunlib was such a nice guy, doing all its efforts to give you the best experience.
Room (king suit) is big, clean and nice decorated.
Food and drinks (at the rooftop with nice view) are good too and not expensive.
Thanks for having us!!

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights in this family run Havelli. Getting there by taxi was a challenge as cars can’t access the winding alleyways of the old city so we had to transfer to two tuk tuks. But once there, the location was great, close to good local eateries & the markets close to the Clocktower were easy walking distance. Our two rooms were small but clean & most importantly had hot water! There was a lovely view from the rooftop restaurant over the city & the fort at a distance.
