The quality of the service is what makes this a very special hotel. The pool was a real treat and the flowering creepers were also a lovely touch. The rooms were large and quite comfortable. Some of dished like the palak paneer was fantastic.

This hotel was the one we liked best on our 3 week Indian trip. The beauty of the garden setting and the outdoor eating area and the authentic heritage charm really made it special. It was originally a grand home which was converted to a hotel and it retains some of the charm and vibe. Just outside is the busy...

This is one of the best heritage hotels in Rajasthan. Very well maintained property and courteous staff. We all absolutely loved our stay at Ratan Vilas. Dinner and Breakfast were very good. The cleanliness of the palace and rooms were wonderful. Highly recommended.

A calm retreat in the midst of the frenzy of Jodhpur. Located reasonably close (5 mins drive) to the Clock Tower markets and the shopping lanes which are fascinating to walk around. We had a Superior Room near the pool on the ground floor - huge, well furnished and fitted with equally enormous marble bathroom with sunken bath/shower (be careful...

In a country filled with people, color, noise and unfortunately pollution, the Ratan Vilas provided a wondrous setting to recharge and enjoy its magnificent setting, superior service and beautiful room. I would not change one thing about it, and would hope to be able to return one day. What enhanced my stay even further, and made my stay in Jodhpur...

We slept here with pleasure two nights. An oasis of tranquility in a busy city. A large room with a perfect shower. A clean and pleasant pool. Good wifi, unfortunately only on the terrace at the front desk. The restaurant is fine. The food would probably be a little more authentic. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly.

We all absolutely loved our stay at Ratan Vilas! The children were feeling a little bit nervous about travelling in India and Jodphur was our first proper stop. As soon as we were greeted and shown our room, these worries all disappeared! The kids (9, 12 and 13 years) loved everything about Ratan Vilas...the pool, the garden, the food, the...
