It was one of best stays we had, one to remember. Everything was excellent starting from front office to dinning, room service .Mr Indana Prathap took extra care to see that we have best of time there starting from checkin to rooms and dining. Introducing us to Mr Mahipal (Chef) so that we can enjoy each and every meal of ours. Food quality was very good ,nice rajasthani food . we also had one of the best oriental food .But i suggest them to improve their portions which were small. Mr Chawla (Relations) tried to see that we are comfortable and enjoying our stay. Our housekeeper Mr Narinder took good care to see that our rooms are well done and comfortable at all times.Pool staff was excellent. Children enjoyed magic shows and cultural programmes .We purchased nice Rajasthani slippers from one of the vendors. All staff was very interactive and always made efforts to see that we are comfortable.Overall excellent hospitality and services.Thanks

I love the place. It is very nice. The exteriors are great, along with the spacious lobby and pool areas. The fixtures on the wall and the various items on display is very nice indeed. The rooms with the high ceilings are most appreciated.
The drawbacks are the rooms upkeep which is poor. The furniture needs replacement. The plug points needs modernizing and bathrooms too a little bit of sprucing up. No free wifi...( Just add it to the room charges and who will know) At least makes you look good. Food could be better and it was just strictly okay. The oomph factor was missing and there is vast scope for improvement in quality.
Housekeeping, Reception, restaurant and bar staff were uber nice and always willing to go the extra mile. Security here is good.Latitude restaurant and Olive bar staff excelled. Used their spa for massage which was good. Local Rajasthani entertainers performed daily in the evening around 7 pm.
Stayed 3-5 June 2014 as a family of three and the extra bed fitted in fine in a Superior charm garden view room on the higher floor.
Direct booking via phone/email + check in and check out was smooth.

Room Tip: Roof top in winters will be great ( Dec to March )

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for choosing to stay at Vivanta by Taj – Hari Mahal, and it was a pleasure to have you and your family with us.

We are glad that you liked our hotel’s architecture and interior. This property was built with elements of the local culture and ethos reflected in the architecture, materials used, and the colours, tapestry and paintings in the hotel. Refurbishment and renovation of our guest areas is a continuous process, and we are working on the interior upliftment of our guest rooms as well as public areas in a phased manner.

We do understand your viewpoint with regard to the charges for Wi-Fi services. As we communicate these have been reviewed, and we have come up with an option for our guests to use our complimentary Wi-Fi services for basic e-mail and simple browsing. A higher bandwidth connection for using video streaming, unlimited e-mail access etc., is available at a charge.

Food is an important and intrinsic part of any hotel experience, and I regret that we did not live up to your expectations in this regard. Our Executive Chef is working along with his team to improve upon our offerings to provide memorable dining experiences to our guests.

Thank you also for you heartwarming appreciation of our colleagues, and we have been pleased to share your feedback with them. It has been a great source of inspiration to all of them.

We look forward to future opportunities to be of service, and please do let me know of any assistance that I may be of.

Right from the outer gate to the hotel, you are a welcomed guest. The smart salutations, the welcome at the reception, the ease with which you are booked in and of course, the journey to your room and final making you settle in the room is as grandeur as can be. You really are given a feel as if you are entering your palace and you are the king of all you behold.

The rooms are quite spacious with heavy furniture, taking you back to the old era. The washrooms are neat and clean with adequate facilities as are required of a "Starred" Hotel. The pool is quite neat and clean with an added precautions taken to cover the entire length and breadth of the pool with nets to avoid bird droppings and free from other droppings.

The staff was found to be quite courteous and helpful, especially Ms. Ambica at the reception. The dinner at the restaurant was a real delight. The hotel itself is quite a sight and with a huge open terrace which could be converted into a green area and made more imposing.

An all together pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend someone to give it a try before falling in love with it.!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Book in advance to avoid disappointment of not getting a pool side room.

A very nice Property, truly shows the TAJ effect, very near to Railway Station as well as Airport. The TAJ experience has clearly visible here along with rich Tradition of Rajasthan. One can feel the Rajasthan's Royal experience in hospitality, services everywhere. Rooms are spacious enough with all required amenities. Buffet Lunch and Dinner are good but when compare to similar Star Hotels; seems something missing in terms of variety. All amenities like Children Play rooms, Recreation centre, Swimming Pool etc are wonderful and well in working style.

the minute you step into any Taj property, you feel as if you have entered a different world alltogether... This property was no different. The service was impeccable.. the oom service, requests etc were handled promptly as there was an assigned floor butler... we did not feel like stepping out for sightseeing, though we eventually did! must mention that the day we were to leave, we asked for the dal bati churma during lunch... the maitr d' told us that we have to order 3 hours in advance as thats the preparation time, we said too bad as we are leaving in an hour... and we went about with our lunch... a little later, the maitr d' came and told us that someone else had ordered dal bati in advance and they had prepared quite a bit extra and hence he could get us... we told him to get on;ly one bati, but he insisted on getting us a full portion and refused to add it to our bill... they just wanted to ensure that we got to taste their dal baati before we left! all in all, superb place and worth every penny!

Visited Jodhpur and stayed at Taj Harimahal on 1st and 2nd June. This was our first experience with Taj and it certainly matched our expectations. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The swimming pool is very well maintained and covered by net to protect from birds. The staff is very courteous and polite. As we had booked in advance on phone, the check in was really fast and so was the check out.

It has good restaurants serving all types of food. They also have an activity room offering Pool, Carom, Table Tennis, Movies, etc. to keep children busy.

Due to a minor technical flaw with AC in our room, they upgraded us to a suite room on the second day (Even though the problem was rectified immediately) The Manager Mr Rathore and Mr Prathap took utmost care of our comfort and we very much appreciate it.

The staff at the reception, security, swimming pool, gym, activity room and restaurant were polite and courteous.

I will certainly find out a reason to visit this place and stay there again and again in future.

Room Tip: Would suggest a pool facing room on 1st or 2nd floor.
