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.

We had a great time there.Overall a good place to visit. Keep up the same.
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the year-end holidays 2018. It's a nice property a large one,over a large place.
I recommend this place definitely.
Few points :
1. Large property.
2. Nice rooms
3. They have nice swimming pool and a ground in front. Must be a few acres of property size.
4. Rooms spacious. Bathrooms nice.
5. Excellent breakfast with a good spread was included in our stay.
6. Had internet too but it was slow.
7. They have a bar which is charged moderately.
8. Food was good , the restaurants remain open till 10:30 pm but they have room service after that with limited items.
9. Staff was excellent. Helped us where ever possible and there were no waiting time anywhere.
Things which you may not like...
1. It's around 30 mins from the centre (clock tower area).
2. Room centralized AC was kept it a little warmer than I liked. Room settings did not work.
3. Few of the power sockets had issues.
Compared to other places of stay here I found this better in most aspects and I would recommend this.
The outside of The Ummed is impressive. The lawns are lush and expansive and the peacocks wandering around with the loose polo ponies by the pool sets the scene.
The rooms are large and the laundry service is quick. The lighting in the rooms and corridors is poor. The staff are all helpful but the standard of English was low. The buffet food was plentiful.
Very Good place and excellent service.
Lots of open space.
Perfect for family trips, kids will enjoy.
