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
Its beautiful property with royal touch. However, service is horrible. We checked in at 11:30 in the night. All lights in the lobby were switched off (don’t know the reason why) giving it a feel of a “bhoot bunglow”. We are a family of three and they had given us a room which had two single beds. In spite of requesting they didn’t accommodate and gave a room with king size bed. Our bags did not reach us till we asked them to send calling minimum 3 times. In the bathroom, health faucet was constantly leaking making bathroom wet for which we complained but no action taken. Commode was not very clean, toilet seat was shaky. All this was not attended at all. The weather was good so we decided to use swimming pool. But it was horribly maintained. There was no staff near the pool to check if people using the pool were following the proper swim attires or no. We saw people getting in the pool with vests n half pants, ladies with hair all open as if they r in a water park.
Also, proximity to station, and all attractions is poor as it is located in outskirts.
All in all a pathetic experience and I would not recommend this property to anyone.
What a grand structure it is!! Amazing palace. There are around 5 to 6 rooms converted to Museum. You have kings family pics, their household things on display. There is a room full of different types of clock. Then you have vintage car Museum. Would not take more than 2 hours to visit
Wonderful property. Courteous Staff. Peaceful environment. Loved sighting the peacocks right out the room window. Lush green area. pool is amazing. The room service needs a little attention. But worth the price.
