Reviewed 22 August 2014

Our family spent a night at the Ranbanka hotel and loved it. The hotel is an oasis of calm in a noisy city. Though overlooked by tall buildings on one side, the lawns in front of the hotel are beautiful and make for a lovely setting at dinnertime. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious, with excellent bathrooms - the best we say in an extended North India tour! The restaurant is very good, both the choices for dinner and breakfast, and for the very attentive service of the waitstaff. Mr. Bhavani, the manager, was very solicitous of our comfort and needs. The one very significant drawback is that, unlike every hotel we stayed in, the internet was not free, and had to be paid for on an hourly basis. Quite tacky, given the luxury surroundings!

There is a row of shops outside the hotel within walking distance where there is pretty decent silver jewellery. We went into town and found the prices and selection comparable to that available at these shops. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the airport.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor which was not a problem for us, but might be an issue for those who find...

We stayed here for one night on our tour of Rajasthan. The hotel is a heritage property, which is what I preferred for our tour. We were offered a welcome drink upon our arrival, which would have been lovely, had the drink itself been better; it was essentially tepid blue sugar-water without any discernible flavor. When we were led to our room, we were told we had been upgraded to a Club Room but upon opening the door, the musty, moldy smell left us wondering how the lower-grade rooms could possibly be worse. The bathroom was a further disappointment. While spacious it was tiled in black marble (streaked with water marks), which rendered its interior gloomy and dungeon-like.The room was spacious however, the bed large, and the linens clean.

Otherwise Ranbanka's courtyard is very lovely and picturesque. We also dined twice in the restaurant, for dinner and breakfast, and were satisfied with our meals and service both times. Breakfast was served buffet style with several Indian and Western offerings, including non-vegetarian ones.

Just an average, over-rated property. Hospitality and staff behavior needs major overhauling. Suggestion to the management - Don't treat Indian and Foreign guests differently. Both give you revenue right?

Dear Sir,

Greetings from Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur- A Classified Heritage Hotel!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! I am disappointed to know that your stay at Ranbanka Palace did not match up to the expectations. I would like to assure you that we do not differentiate between Indian and foreign guests. We get a lot of foreign groups which visit Jodhpur during the winter months and since they come in large groups, they generally occupy a number of tables in the courtyard. Due to the size of the groups, at times, the service staff get busy trying to take care of their requests and may not be able to provide the same amount of attention to the other guests. We are already working on improving our services through further training and hope to be able to enhance our service levels for the future. I do apologize if you did not receive the service level that you should have received as a result.

I do hope that you will give us another opportunity to provide you with a memorable experience.

Looking forward to welcoming you back to Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur!

Warm Regards,

Sandeep Arora

Dear Sir,

Greetings from Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur- A Classified Heritage Hotel!

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I was disappointed to know that you did not find the Ranbanka experience to your satisfaction. The room that was allotted to you was a Club Room in the Jodhana Wing. The size of each room is different and you may have found it to be smaller than some of our other rooms. I do apologize for the inconvenience faced by you. We have noted your concerns regarding the privacy in the rooms and will certainly have it taken care of. I would also like to inform you that we have recently renovated the rooms in the Palace Wing. These rooms are more spacious and provide a heritage experience.

I do hope that you will give us another opportunity to showcase a truly memorable experience at Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur.

I stayed in the heritage hotel in Feb 2014 for three days. I think I have never experienced such a relaxed and royal environment. Rooms are big, nice and clean. I had a large balcony with my room which on looked towards the courtyard. There are evening programs organised each day which gave the courtyard an amazing ambiance. The food was amazing. The service is incomparable. The hotel is just walking distance from the town market but one needs a vehicle to see other attractions. Staff is extremely helpful and polite.
