The best hotel of our trip. Super friendly and helpful staff and management. The pool provides a sparklingly clean and peaceful escape from the hair-dryer heat and honking horns of Jodhpur. Bedrooms and bathrooms clean and spacious. Sheets super white and soft; bed beautifully firm. And the food.... oh the food - delicious. Loved Jodhpur, loved Ratanvilas. Will be back.

We had an incredibly happy time here, staying for two nights. The building is a colonial era bungalow which has been sympathetically enlarged and updated. It is not plush, but for the price extremely good value. The fact that it is family run adds to its charm. The staff are incredibly keen to please. The food was a complete find...

Charming colonial building in Jodhpur, very clean and well kept. Spacious rooms, excellent service, wonderful patio to have breakfast and dinner. A perfect hideaway from noisy city center. Only negative point: during the dinner we requested a bottle of red wine that turned to be almost undrinkable (probably badly conserved): we asked to change it, and the second one was...
