Govind is very conveniently located a couple of minutes' walk from the railway station. After booking in advance, I was offered the "walking pickup" from the station, a very James Bond affair in which contact is made surreptitiously by means of a flashed name sign, and you silently follow the manager out of the station without talking. The station police have been giving the Govind staff hassle, mistaking them for touts, hence the need for the secret agent style procedure - which I enjoyed immensely!
The hotel was very nice, clean and comfortable, with a wonderful little roof terrace cafe/restaurant, which has a great view of Meherangarh Fort. Well, of half of Meherangarh Fort - unfortunately, the other half is obscured by a huge billboard of Amitabh Bachchan advertising cement.
The staff are friendly and extremely helpful, and gave me lots of good advice for places to sort out a few different errands I had. The Bishnoi village tour, arranged by the hotel, was a highlight of my visit to Jodhpur is recommended. Overall, great value and a very pleasant, comfortable stay.
