A majestic courtyard and a lofty lobby greet guests at this 88-room property in Rajasthan’s second-largest city. All guestrooms are decked out in soothing earth tones with hardwood furnishings, and they feature twice-daily turn-down service and tea- and coffeemaking facilities. Upgrade to a Superior Room for a top-floor view of the hotel garden, or for extra space opt for an Executive Suite, which comes with a separate living room. After a long day of sightseeing, have a dip in the outdoor pool or take a walk around the grounds — the hotel is surrounded by 28 acres. The food options will sate practically any craving: Gad serves both Indian and European fare (burgers or biryani for dinner, apple pie or jamun tart for dessert), while the Dunes bar offers paneer and enchiladas for late night snacks.
In the Area
Nearly every building in Jodhpur’s old city is painted bright blue, which makes for a striking effect, especially seen from above. Take in the sea of buildings from the top of the Menhrangarh Fort, a sprawling 15th-century sandstone fortress built to protect the old city, 400 feet below. Smart travelers will plan their visit for sunset, to see both the bold city skyline and the fort lit by night; museum curators are on hand to offer guided twilight tours of the monument. If you’ve got time, plan a daytrip to Osian (40 miles away). The ancient city is famous for its Hindu and Jain temples — and its sunset camel safaris.
How to Get There
The property is a good heritage property and the family enjoyed it a lot. Staying here was a value for money. Except AC we did not cam across any issue here. The staff wee also very co-operative. Food was also very good.
We were in this palatial place last week. Our experience right from reception, house keeping, maintainence, food, luxury, helpfulness of staff was excellent. Bajrang, Sunil, Anaram, Chef - Saurabh, Chef -Ilayas, restaurant manager Amarish, housekeeping staff Kailash, reception staff Pankaj & Himanshi and absolutely each and everyone in all departments were brilliant. It was like home away from home for us! Thank you very much for everything! We will definitely visit your place again!
I would rate it as the most disappointing place of our stay during the rajasthan trip. What a beautiful property but such poor maintenance. The lobby flooring is coming out and that looks extremely shabby. Poor room service and completely clueless staff. Ask for something and it would take room service people ages to deliver it. Extremely ordinary food as compared to Jodhpur's excellent taste buds enticing food. We added this place on our iternary as we wanted to feel the royal warmth of rajasthan but I feel it was absolutely the opposite of it. Total waste of our money and day at this place as it is quiet far from the main city so you can hardly go anywhere once you are here. Highlight of the staff's unprofessional behaviour was when we checked out we booked a cab the ola driver being a notorious one asked us to pay in cash to which we refused as we had booked to pay him in ola money so he started threatening us that you either cancel the cab or I wouldn't let you book another ola. I was almost about to call the cops as he was getting quiet aggressive. All this was happening on the entrance of the reception of the hotel. The so called helpful staff from the reception comes out hearing the commotion and Instead of helping the guest they tells us please get out of our property and solve your problems outside it. Horrible people not ready to help at all. Never ever would recommend anyone this place. Don't waste your money in this property as jodhpur has much better places to stay and enjoy.
This is the third time I have stayed at the Ummed as it is such a lovely place to stay. Lovely pool complex and large grounds to wander in. Lovely grounds inside hotel complex. Another reason for my third visit is Narpat Singh Rathore he is such an asset to this hotel. Very professional and smartly dressed, extremely professional and polite to guests. Nothing is too much trouble for him a very hard working trustworthy person, Certainly made our stays special. Look forward to getting back later this year to meet up with Narpat again
We were meant to stay two nights but left after one. Bar not open and smelt horrible although advertised happy hour 6-8 pm. Bedsheets ditty fit bed. Toilet seat moved when sat on. Not worth the money. Went out for dinner.
