I'm not sure why this hotel is rated as 3 star as in my opinion it deserves better. Classically elegant, this family owned an operated hotel was a gorgeous restful oasis for our team of four whilst touring Rajastan. The pool and gardens were lovely, so much so that none of us wanted to move on after our two night...

This place I first visited about 7 years ago and has gotten better. the rooms are old style furniture with a faded wealthy family feel. The bathrooms large but sparse which is fine, as there was plenty of water and they were very clean. The swimming pool is very clean and having just shifted from RAAZ we found the pool...

This hisoric, peaceful and beautiful property is just what you need after a few hectic days in India. We were concerned the location was too far from the popular sites but we couldn't have been happier with our choice. It is easy (and inexpensive) to get a tuk tuk anywhere you want to go and drivers in the city know...

Ratan Vilas is a wonderful example of understated excellence. It may not appear to be striking from its location on the unlikely named Old Loco Shed Road in Jodhpur, but it is only a short distance from the Clock Tower and the frenetic centre of the old town and it is a well ordered haven of peace. It is a...

A wonderful small hotel in the old Indian Maharaja style. The complex, as well as the pool are very well maintained and with much attention to detail equipped. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean. Duvets, as well as towels were clean. The food in this small hotel was a very good indian kitchen and evenings in a tent with...

Jodhpur, aside from its sentinel fort, is not the prettiest town in India and the Loco Shed Rd. area is not exactly salubrious but if you are in Jodhpur for any reason, such as the annual Jodhpur Riff music festival held in the spectacular Mehrengha Fort, then you want a welcoming and restorative place to retire to at the end...

We travelling along the Jaipur to Jaisalmer via Jodhpur circuit and this family run hotel came highly recommended. Once inside the grounds you will feel as if you have been cut off from the rest of Jaipur. A short distance away from the clock tower yet you get to escape the cacophony of Jodhpur. The place is very well maintained...
