We stayed at the Ratan Vilas in early January 2014. The heritage hotel is set on very large grounds, back from the street, away from all the noise of Jodhpur. The rooms are set around internal courtyards, with seating areas, charming settings for a quiet relax. Our room and bathroom were extremely large and very well appointed with everything that...

Ratan vilas is very good place to stay in jodhpur. Good staff. Food options are limited because of the food culture of Jodhpur. But they have plenty of options in breakfast. Very well maintained rooms with ethnic Rajasthan feel. It makes you feel haveli like. We should stay at least for two days. I will love to stay their again.

This hotel was really nice, clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. The staff provided exceptional service. The hotel is back off a busy street and when you walk in to the grounds you feel the quiet. It is like an oasis in the busy city.

I stayed with my husband in 2007 and was pleased to return to what I remembered as a simple but characterful hotel based around a gracious period home, managed by a husband and wife team with a small staff. But since I was there the "standard" rooms have been renovated and are now less "vernacular" but certainly more comfortable -...

We have just spent a week here on our honeymoon trip through India and are overjoyed with our stay. Our room was lovely; a good size and well furnished, as is the entire hotel. There are lovely gardens for sitting and reading in the sun, and the pool area is regularly cleaned. Service is attentive and the food is not...

I have never bothered to write a review on Tripadvisor (or anywhere) before but this lovely hotel and staff deserve recommendation. Lovely ambiance, great food, fantastic service a calm oasis and sanctuary in the hubbub of Jodhpur.

Huge room, decent food (though toned down too much, spice-wise, for the western palate), awesome service all for a very modest price. One of the nicest hotels we've stayed at since moving to India nearly two years ago. Very quiet setting. Exceedingly clean. Antiques throughout. Great value.

We really can't fault this hotel. From the free transfer from the airport to the warm welcome to the beautiful gardens and the relaxing pool area to the lovely rooms and the delicious food in the restaurant. And did I mention free WiFi? All at an unbelievably reasonable cost. We would definitely stay here again on our return to Jodhpur.

Our favorite city on our trip to India, the room was relaxed with a great shower and a good size. There is no heat but they had already placed a heater in the room before we arrived. There were extra blankets, treats, and a great restaurant with amazing kebabs awaiting us too. The employees were kind and very attentive. When...
