“Safe for solo female”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

I was a solo female traveler, which made me nervous about staying in a local homestead. The staff was super friendly and made certain I was looked after and safe. They arranged for airport pick-up and for a driver to take me to the fort and then "downtown" for dinner to Pal Haveli which they recommended and was a fabulous place to watch the lights change over the fort. ATM is right outside the gates of the hotel so you can feel safe pulling money out. Staff was nice to cook breakfast for friends who stopped by to pick me up. Wifi does not work well in the room but there are plenty of comfortable couches and tables in the main room with access to plugs. Wifi signal was strong and I was able to Skype. I was there in December so rooms were chilly but they gave me an extra blanket and I slept warm.

We stayed here after a long journey from Udaipur, arriving late.

The hotel is a little off the beaten track, but we were shown a very warm welcome in spite of the lateness of the hour.

The room was basic, and reasonably clean. There is a charming small courtyard around which the rooms are arranged. Its quite close to the railway line, so light sleepers may stuggle with the regular horn blaring that continues intermittently throughout the night,

Most impressive though was the quality of the hospitality we were shown throughout, which was the best we experienced on our trip, including some much more expensive properties. This included the owner rising in the middle of the night to see us off to the night train to Jaiselmer, which was really appreciated.

Its not the grandest of properties, and its a bit out on its own location-wise, but if you are looking for good care, and a great value stay, then this is hard to beat.

We stayed at Jagat Vilas for 2 nights with our family.The service and the overall hospitality was below average..The bathrooms were unclean and the staff was super slow and untrained.Not even basic things like morning tea bread and butter were available.

There were no room heaters and the leakage in the bathroom,there was no water in the wash basin in one of the rooms.

Room Tip: stay here at your own risk..

We stayed in the Jagat Vilas for three nights in december 2013. The hotel is run by a family who welcome you in there home and invite you to treat the hotel as your own home.

We asked if we could get a cooking "lesson" and they gladly allowed us to help prepare the evening meal.

Highly recommended.

Jagat Vilas is not a hotel it is a home stay where you can feel a home away from home. At any moment of time, you can not feel you are in a different place from your home. Mr. & Mrs. Devendra are wonderful host and ready to help with the available staff. We stayed there for 2 nights in last week of December 2013 and astonished by the overwhelming response from there side as a home stay owner. Definitely recommended if you really want to have homely feelings..

Room Tip: All rooms are equally spacious, though, first floor rooms have additional advantage of a balcony spa...
