Stayed at Ratan Villas for 2 nights and would thoroughly recommend to anyone staying in Jodhpur. Arrived after a hectic trip from Delhi and was pleasantly surprised by the haggle-free complimentary airport pick up. The service and hospitality at the hotel was fantastic and very relaxed. Our room was beautifully furnished and comfortable. The pool is a great touch!

We stayed here for 2 nights on our whirlwind tour of India, this was my favorite. It sits back from a very busy street and when you pull back you can hear the volume and feel the bustle lower. The hotel has a nice covered porch with open air and covered seating for dinner. They have a nice pool. There... More

My wife and I stayed in India for 3 weeks in total. We stayed in many different places. This was by far the best hotel we stayed in. We arrived late in the night train from Jaisalmer, checking in around 23h00. It seemed as it was regular day time. The front desk staff were very efficient and kind to provide... More

As described by other reviewers this is a lovely hotel, with good rooms, a great swimming pool, relaxing gardens and excellent service. Our stay was particularly memorable because the lady who welcomed us noticed it was my birthday the following day. The next morning a posy of flowers was delivered to the room, and in the evening we were surprised... More

Lovely grounds, v clean rooms and friendly staff BUT building works spoiled the poolside experience, they should be offering discounts or free drinks to guests to ease the pain! That said, I'd recommend staying on the outskirts of jodphur in summer - nice to escape from the madness of the inner city and cool down.

As someone who travels over 100K miles a year for work, I stay at a lot of hotels. On vacations, I prefer to avoid the major chains for places that are more boutique, intimate, and have unique character. I first discovered Ratan Vilas in 2007. It was a great find then and it is even more wonderful today. It is... More

Booked for us by the excellent Audley Travel and up to the required standard in almost every way. A superb room 102 lacking just a mini bar but comfortable and beautifully furnished in er.... Colonial style. Actively managed by the local senior family and with an outstanding pool area. Food is served throughout the day and dinner from 19.30 which... More

I am writing this review as we prepare to check out of Ratan Vilas. We booked this accommodation for our 3 days in Jodhpur and thought we would look around for other hotels for one more final night after further touring and before we flew back to our home in Chennai. However on entering Ratan Villas through their delightful garden... More

The hotel is well located and the limited grounds are pleasant but the noise and dust of building work on the extension till late in the evening made it difficult to enjoy the pool. The outdoor restaurant area is pleasant and the food was good. The rooms are only average with poor lighting.

Dear Guests, Thank you for staying with us. We are deeply disturbed with the fact that we were unable to meet your expectations. The noisy and dusty phase of the building work is over now. Nonetheless, the inconvenience caused to you cannot be justified. This summer we are working on our rooms. Your observation about poor lighting is well noted... More

We stayed at Ratan Vilas for 2 days . The hotel was clean, rooms were spacious. Staff was courteous and helpful. They had limited choices in the menu but we found the food quite tasty. The hotel is very close from Umaid Bhavan Palace and about 20 min drive from the fort.

We are working on more options that can be added, especially the traditional Rajasthani dishes. We will be privileged to welcome you again at Ratan Vilas. With sincere regards Brijraj More
