Booked for 2 nights but got out after one and it wasn't soon enough!
After 8 weeks in India and staying in a wide range of accommodation this was one of two bad hotel experiences we had.
The reception greeting was cold, uninterested and not helped by the person behind the desk scratching his genitals in front of us as he talked to his buddy.
Being tired after a long drive, we dropped the bags in the room and headed for the "restaurant" hoping to have lunch. Every table was covered in filthy tablecloths with crumbs and discarded food. We sat for a few minutes but no staff appeared so I went to "reception" and asked genital man if the restaurant was open. "I will send boy" was his reply. You guessed it , no boy or other human appeared and we eventually left.
It spoiled our afternoon in Jodhpur.
We returned to spend the night and found quickly that the dirt and neglect in the restaurant was matched by the room. We literally could write our name in the dust on top of the fridge. The toilet bowl had ample evidence of past usage as did the adjoining bathroom door, a monument to people with bad aim.
Our prior encounter with the "dining room" convinced us that the breakfast included in the room rate was probably a gamble we should not take. We checked out first thing next morning and went elsewhere to have breakfast.
This hotel is a disgrace and should be shut down. It is not suitable for human habitation.
A 1826 haveli was purchased and converted to a hotel after making necessary additions alterations compatible to modern living. The ambience and decor give a real heritage feel. The stay was comfortable with good sleep quality. Rooms are clean and spacious. However, the bathroom fittings are quite old with limited toiletries and worn out towels. The location is bit odd - through a narrow lane off a road leading to clock tower (half KM).
We faced problem with the food of the hotel which was was not at all satisfactory despite high price. Our New Year's eve dinner was totally spoiled. There is no nearby eating joint also. The complimentary breakfast had no variation and very limited choice : Poha, Corn-flex, Toast and eggs to order. The rooms should be provided with a tea/coffee maker considering room rent.
I came as a solo traveller and this place was booked by my tour operator for two days. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a grumpy man at the reception (I understand that because I look like I'm Indian I'm being treated this way, a sad fact I observed) until I opened my mouth and he detected a different accent and changed his behavior drastically to being way too nice.
Room was spacious enough but bathroom smells bad.
Breakfast wasn't too bad, compensated by the restaurant staff attentiveness.
When I checked out, the man at the reception (a different one) slammed the key I gave to him. Absurd behaviour from a person being the front face of a beautiful hotel. Will never return
The approach to the Hotel/Haveli is through narrow, crowded streets, though this is common for Hotels located in the Old City area, but there is parking available. The Haveli has a very good facade and the foyer and verandah are very good. The architecture is typical of a good Haveli - a central verandah open to sky and rooms around it. The chandelier is large and pretty. However the rooms are basic and provide adequate comfort. Hot water was a struggle later in the morning, most of it's been used up. Rooms need maintenance and renovation. Breakfast was OK, standard Indian fare, a few items with nothing exciting. A good place for staying if expectations are set right for a place like this in Jodhpur, India. People and staff were courteous.
Don't form your opinion by the approach road to the haveli. It's very bad. As you try to find your way through the narrow lanes, you will probably curse yourself for choosing this hotel. But once inside, you will be happy to stay indoors! What a lovely Haveli! It must be the best mid budget hotel in Jodhpur. The clock tower and sardar market are closeby and walkable. Auto ride will cost you around 50/-rs. Buffet Breakfast was OK - cornflakes, milk, Banana, omelette, bread butter,jam,poha,aloo paratha. Staff is polite and efficient. Ground floor rooms are big. But rooms on first floor are better as u have access to the courtyard. Room no 108, 107,109 are very good. Try to avoid corner rooms like 113,114. But all rooms are well maintained. No problem getting hot water. Special thanks to the owner Abid ji for making our stay so pleasent and comfortable. He's the most amiable and accommodating hotel owner I have met so far.
