Ranbanka Palace
Ranked #11 of 98 Hotels in Jodhpur
Reviewed 25 May 2012

I was in Jodhpur on business, and returning to Ranbanka in the evenings was a delight. The staff were great, and were happy to move me to a room near the pool, after I requested it. The grounds are well maintained, and the restaurant is good. Entertainment in the evenings adds a nice cultural touch. I had to change some money there, and I was given a very fair exchange rate.
The only small negative I have, is that they outsource their internet provider, and I found it very pricey as I had to pay double - once for my notebook, and again for my i-phone!!!
Apart from that, I would highly recommend the Ranbanka, and I will be staying there again myself!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the pool courtyard area

Thank you for your wonderful review. I will happily share your comments with the rest of the team and I am sure it will make them very happy. Regarding the Internet feedback, we have noted the same and our planning to have an in-house setup in the Hotel instead of having the outsourced one (like we have right now). I am sure this will solve the purpose and will be as per your liking. We hope to be able to welcome you back to Ranbanka Palace for some more pampering.

What I remember about my visit to the Ranbanka Palace in Jodhpur is (1) the tranquility of the hotel, in the midst of all the noise and activity outside, (2) the cleanliness of all parts of the hotel, and (3) the attention of the staff. There was one in particular that was so memorable. Her name, I recall, was Chanchal. And she was so pleasant with her attentions , intelligent, attentive to my problems, professional , and interpersonally adept that I felt she was immediately a friend as well as a proud member of the staff. This is an excellent hotel. I will look for every opportunity to return to the Ranbanka Palace in the future.

Beautiful hotel, good rooms, and although not in the center, it is easy to take a riksja to and from the hotel. Very friendly helpful staff. It is apparently a popular place for tourist groups, we have not seen any Indian guests there. But there is a good indian restaurant (the rock I believe) at three minutes walk, and again, city is easy to reach if you want more Indian athmosphere. Breakfast was a bit simple, but they promised to improve that.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel while on a tour of the Golden Triangle in India. The rooms were impeccably clean and the food was tasty (a mixture of spicy and not too spicy). The staff at the front desk staff is extremely courteous and knowledgeable. I had to use my computer and the staff was very helpful in making things simple for me.

You must also pick up a pair of Rajasthani slippers that Mano makes himself and sells at the hotel. I checked around and they are the most well made at the best price around. Stop by and say hello even if you don't need slippers, he is a very nice man and I'm sure you'll enjoy the conversation.

I would be very happy to return to this hotel for a longer stay. I was sad to leave!

of all the places we stayed at in 10 days this was the worst service - the service was just tourist weary and the drinks were the highest prices - for a likka it was 220 rupees which is usually 100 rupees so be careful. other than that the rooms were fine and we just stayed for one night so not much time to really see. we did however watch a bollywood movie next door - kinda fun - in Hindi but you kinda gets the jist of it - also a little mall in the same place to get indian goods at local prices.
