They are obviously working on the hotel and when the new dining area is completed it will give an option to outside area.
Value for money and huge bedroom and bathroom were fine only slight problem with shower door but did not spoil stay

The Marvel Umed was the least enjoyable of all our hotels during our 10 days travelling through Rajasthan. It was acceptable, just, but it lacked anything which made it standout as memorable, and the overall feeling I got was one of one of disrepair and disinterest.

The “problems” started when some mix up with our travel company meant that the hotels they normally use were unavailable (which is clearly not the Marvel Umed’s fault), and only after a bit of mucking around could we find the place. This included a phone call from our driver to the hotel, seeking location/directions. Whilst these discussions were in Hindi which we did not understand, it was clear that the directions being given were not clear. We eventually found the place, and when we approached the front desk (which is out in a sort of open courtyard) we had no greeting to acknowledge our arrival given the prior phone call, but as I said earlier, one of disinterest.

There is no proper dining area in the hotel. There is a very large al fresco area, right out the front, between the building proper and the street (one of Jodhpur’s main roads, and therefore busy). It is completely open, and informal. This was where we had a tea upon arrival, our dinner and breakfast. At dinner time each table is provided with a brazier burner to warm the general area, as it is cold in the open air. These did have some effect, but mainly one of ensuring that we came away smelling smoky.

Having said the food was lovely, and the service from the chap who served us pretty good. No complaints here at all.

The bedroom is another matter. The bed linen compromised one bottom sheet, and a quilt/duvet. No problems with that in itself. However it is unusual not to have a top sheet, and I don’t know whether this was an attempt by the hotel at being “continental”, or an oversight. Either way, we didn’t discover this until about 10pm, and at that stage I couldn’t be bothered attempting to rectify. There is nothing wrong with this in itself, except that there was no cover on the quilt, which was dirty, yellowed and stained, and looked like it had not been washed/dry-cleaned for quite some time. So, we slept under linen which had probably been used many times before by a wide variety of guests.

The bathroom was a challenge. It was huge, but with a shower alcove the size of a postage stamp. Water spewed everywhere from the shower head, and the alcove doors (glass) did not close properly. The glass door looked as if they had not been cleaned for years. There is no hot water to the hand basin, so shaving with hot water is not possible.

I actually could go on, but I won’t. The reader will get the picture from what I have already said.
All round, not really an enjoyable experience. As I said previously, acceptable, but only just. Compared to all the other “heritage” hotels we stayed at, this one has a long way to go to reach a good standard. We have suggested to our travel company that they not use the Marvel Umed in the future. We had planned for two nights, but stayed only one. See my other Jodhpur accommodation review on the Heritage Kuchaman Haveli.

property is located in the heart of the city very near to the old fort. The rooms are big on size and the ambience is good. Don't expect it to be a five star but I would rate it 3 as it is value for money. The best part is the food.very tasty and delicious. All stars for the food.overall good and a property which one can try.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was large and spacious and the bed was comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly to us throughout our stay. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning.

The shower was definitely a downfall here. It was not warm enough and it was not secured properly to the ground so it moved while you were in it. Quite an adventure!

The hotel could definitely use some work. Our room had a courtyard outside that had old mattresses and tables rather than seating areas for guests to use. They should take advantage of what they have!

All in all, this hotel fit our needs. And they had a fun New Years party!!

The hotel was mentioned as a resort on one of the travel booking sites but its not a resort or even a big hotel by any means. However, its a good economy option which is excellently located close to the fort and some other tourist spots. Staff is friendly and the food is apparently very popular even with the locals.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe rooms which are more spacious, especially if you are travelling with family (kids...

We traveled to Jodhpur in december and stayed in a standard deluxe room.
During our entire rajasthan tour this was the best hotel we found.
The open dining area was cold but the hotel staff gave us a special fireplace - a stand with burning wood to keep us warm.The next day we were to checkout at 7and so I inquired about the breakfast.The manager arranged an early breakfast for us as the breakfast time was after 7.30-8,They took the extra step of sending the breakfast to our room within 15 minutes of informing.The rooms were big and blankets the warmest.There was a cupboard with plenty space and a writing table.I found the hotel professionally run and well managed.

The food costs are high though as in other good hotels in Rajasthan.
