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
This hotel looks great on the outside. It is beautifully set out, with gardens and a Rajasthani palace feel. Rooms are spacious and well furnished. However, the hotel is badly run. My bed had no sheets; towels were provided, but not a bath mat or hand towel; the fridge in my room was broken; the hotel is very noisy; the dining room is poorly run; nothing on the drinks list in the dining room is available, only more expensive options (not on the drinks list); staff were incapable of attending to requests.
Its not really deserve to be ranked 5 star hotel cause its not, but still it was nice hotel the room was big and spacey the bed was super comfortable the room was clean and each day it was reclean in good. As i reached tge hotel no one suggest help me with my heavy bags unfit for hotel in this level, but in the days after the stuff was efficient for each request which was. tge shower need little bit repair and repainted.
the hotel licated 12km out if the city its difficult to order uber but i saw the advantage in its quite and uncroweded location. in the bottom line recommandte but dont expect 5 stars hotel its kind of 4 stars.
We had a recent visit to this hotel from 29th nov to 1st Dec. Had an overwhelming experience with High standard of courtesy and hospitality. The arrangement made on our anniversary date dinner was awasome and made us feel special. We thank all the staff and management for this courtesy extended to us and especially to Mr. Anna ram our steward on date for his politeness and services. We recommend this property to everyone to feel like Maharaja of the day.
Thanks 'The Ummed" we will return surely.
From the team center for innovative building material.
Stayed here with my wife and kid and had booked a Marwad Deluxe room which was quite big and had a bathtub as well where my kid had a lot of fun. The property is quite big and is good enough for the family to relax and have fun. It has a big pool. peacock s and horses. They also provide cricket and badminton accessories. Buffet spread was good. Only drawback is it's about 12 kms from the city and bigger issue is u don't get ola and Uber at this place, so u need to have ur own travel arrangement.
Stayed at this hotel for two nights on our tour of Rajasthan. When we arrived, we thought we had come to a palace! A most impressively dressed doorman, showed us into the impressive reception area. We were quickly allocated our room, with which we were most impressed. Pleased to see a bath as well as a shower in the bathroom. Lovely views over the extensive grounds. Excellent service from the staff. The buffet food was a great mixture of Indian and western cuisine.
I would certainly stay here again, should I return to Jodhpur.
