“A stay here is reason enough to visit Jodhpur!”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This heritage haveli could and should be a model for all heritage properties. It is lovingly cared for by its' owners who have a pride in their history, but the knowledge that travelers need and want modern amenities, cleanliness, fantastic service and wonderful food. The rooms and bathrooms are appointed beautifully - well decorated. There are phones, televisions, bottled water, glorious linens. Help is always around with an eye on detail. The owners share information on the city - where to shop, and, importantly, where NOT to shop, how to get around, what things should cost. They share information about there family history - about their children, their parents. It is what makes travel exciting. We will return!

A very peaceful place to stay in Jodhpur. It is relaxing and clean. It seems to live in a colonial building in the middle of this busy chaotic city. The best part are the meals: they are wonderful!
A great buffet for dinner, tasty and abundant. Breakfast is really very good with a wide choice of food. The owner is a very humble man, ready to serve you in the best manner.
I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Jodhpur. What a pity that we stayed only 1 night!

We stayed here in two separate lots of two nights.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and it has the air of being extremely well run. It is spotlessly clean and you can see the staff constantly cleaning the public areas. The grounds are attractive and the pool area very pleasant indeed. We had rooms 101 and 105. 101 was supposed to be a superior room but the differences were small to be honest. Showers worked well, beds comfortable.
We ate there on two nights. Food is good; buffet or a la carte. Breakfast good as well.
The whole place has a very nice feel to it and we would thoroughly recommend it.

This is a beautiful place for relaxing after a long drive. Quite, though in the middle of the city, excellent food and very courteous and helpful personnel. The food quality was excellent and the kitchen staff were able to serve us a nice dinner, despite our late check in .

I will definitely stay here again when I take my next trip to Jodhpur. The staff are friendly, the grounds are welcoming and the accommodation is of a high standard. I travelled with friends from Udaipur and both our rooms were large and roomy with lots of nice extras, including great air-conditioning on a hot day. We dined in the garden in the evening and food was good. Breakfast was also good. The pool and its surrounds are very well kept and I would recommend to anyone wanting accommodation in Jodhpur.

We stayed here 2 nights and were really looked after well. The room was good size, clean and comfortable with what felt like our own courtyard space outside the room. We had our only upsets of the trip here and its a measure of the Ratan Vilas staff how they helped us through. We had just had news of a death in our family as we checked in and were not a our most lucid - the staff brought us much needed drinks to the private space we had outside our room, and were happy to prepare dinner in their lovely courtyard when most other people had already eaten - and it was a really nice meal. If this was not enough I then wrenched my ankle missing a step. Again they produced an ice and towels and provided a full ice bucket in case I needed it. The next day the owner came to check personally if I was in need of a doctor as they had a very good one for their own family. It is an acid test of the sort of hotel you are in when they have to deal with your more serious problems and do so without any unnecessary fuss - I cannot praise them enough for being quietly attentive when we most needed it.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs corner room which had a semi private seating area outside the room which was shad...
