“Comfortable, good value lodgings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

Situated in a residential neighborhood midway between the airport and the bustling city center, this hotel is moderately priced, comfortable and friendly. There are always tuktuks outside the gate, so transportation to the city and sights is convenient. Or turn left out of the gate and walk 300m to the roundabout; there is a taxi hire shop on the left side. Breakfast is frugal but ok, the restaurant doesn't serve lunch although there is a limited snacks menu, dinner is served in the back lawn - nice ambiance, pleasant in winters, reasonably good food. Free WiFi is a nice touch. Staff are helpful and polite. Minor gripes: Shower area is separated from the toilet/wash basin only by a shower curtain (no shower stall) so the entire bathroom floor gets wet when showering. Electrical fixtures, especially sockets are iffy and rickety.

Room Tip: New wing rooms (above the restaurant) are better. The hotel also has single rooms which are cheaper...

Hotel Karni Bhawan is a nicely located heritage property that we stayed at in Jodhpur.

The outdoor shacks are a nice place to hang out in the evenings if travelling with a group of friends..

T.V, airconditioning all worked well... If there was one aspect of the rooms that could be critiqued, it would be the bathrooms in which the bathing area is not seperated with a step causing the entire washroom floor to get wet when bathing...

Also there is this odd dung smell that we got when passing thorugh some areas of the hotel that probably had the traditional dung floorings..

Food order takes a while when hotel is not so busy during lunch time.. We ordered sunny side up eggs and explained it in hindi even to the order taker, however still received eggs done on both sides..

Other than that comfortable stay....

Karni Bhavan is a Heritage structure property which gives a feel of royalty. Staying here will give you an experience/feel of how the royal families of India lived their life kingsize. Location of the Hotel is perfect as it is not too far from Railways station and known to Auto guys so no worries of locating it. They have a beautiful swimming pool with good relaxing chairs to enjoy your book reading or relaxing after taking a dip. Hotel is popular with foreign tourists hence the hospitality is at its courteous best. An evening dinner was memorable as dining is done in the lawn adjoining the swimming pool with candle lights lit on each table. It can't get any more romantic and one can enjoy extremely good variety food which is priced perfectly. For sightseeing the Hotel is well located and is easily connected to visit all important places in Jodhpur. I suggest fixing a fixed day fare with an Auto and they will take good care of you. It is a city which will take you back to old Rajasthan days and won’t fail in charming you.

Room Tip: Go for a Room with Pool View

My family (3 and 5 year olds) checked into this hotel for two nights in early October. Our stay was generally very positive, but there was a lingering sense that the hotel's glory days were behind it. That said, the food was undoubtedly the best in Rajasthan as the Sodawas recipes are still very much in evidence. The rooms were simple, but reasonably clean. The service staff in the rooms and kitchen were FANTASTIC, but the front desk seemed a bit out of its league. Enjoyed swimming in the pool, but it seemed to want for a running filter. The grounds were a pleasant place to unwind and relax after the crowded streets of town. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would stay again and recommend it to others.

The staff were excellent with children and the grounds offer them room to run (and swim).

We stayed for three nights at hotel Karni Bhawan in September 2011. The hotel is a really nice heritage hotel, with a beautiful garden, refreshing swimming pool, convenient laundry service and free Wi-Fi facilities. The hotel is located 10 minutes by taxi from City Palace and 20 minutes by taxi from Jodhpur Fort. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. The furniture is all Indian style, with beautiful wood carvings and a lot of marble in the bathroom. The hotel offers a good breakfast and dinner is very nice as well. The hotel staff is friendly and the service is good. When we wanted to stay for an extra night, because my boyfriend was suffering from Delhi-belly, this was no problem whatsoever. The wonderful swimming pool is a really nice way to cool down after a hot day of sightseeing.
So if you are looking for a beautiful heritage hotel in Jodhpur, with good service, nice food and spacious rooms, hotel Karni Bhawan is the hotel to go for.
