The room advertised is exactly as per photo, full of charisma and unique since this is a century-aged building. The 2 Nepalese staff was very attentive and concern about our stay and feelings as opposed to the host family which has no interaction at all. The homestay was located on a side road of the bazaar, which is very near to bazaar yet it is located in the tranquil neighborhood. It is not accessible by car due to the narrow lanes of the old town and only by tuk-tuk or walking. Do enjoy the sunrise at their rooftop early morning while enjoying the view overlooking at Mehrangarh Fort. The stay at the homestay and meal served at rooftop restaurant was value for money. If you do not mind to pay extra, do choose the king suite.

It would be better if the host family has a smiley face since it doesn't cost any single cents. The room floor could be better cleaned as it's a bit sandy in the room. Not recommended if stairs is a concern.

This little hotel/homestay has 5 rooms for guests. Ours was quite spacious and very well decorated in traditional Indian style: I particularly loved the wood doors closing with a bolt and padlock and the wood window shuts! Sooooo cute!!
The owners are very friendly and so is the personnel. Cleaning standards were good, too.

Food is served on the roof top terrace with a great view over the blue city. The food was nice, too.

The location is very central, just 10 minutes' walk from the city centre (example the clock tower). The hotel is located in a side road of a bazaar, which makes it really quiet while still being very near bazaar. At first, when we arrived, we were totally unsure about staying so close to a bazaar: we feared it would be noisy and just not right for us . But because I had liked its character so much from the pictures I'd seen, we decided to give it a chance. Luckily! Because we actually loved staying there for all the reasons mentioned above: the hotel is in a central position but quiet, it is near a busy bazaar but in a more enclosed and not trafficked cul-de-sac and you stay with locals and the neighbours are locals, too who have their homes there. I enjoyed this!

Loved staying here, the room was comfortable and the food was fantastic. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty which was served on the rooftop terrace. The only downside to this place is that there is no housekeeping

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
