We stayed for one night at Ratan Vilas. The haveli-turned-into-hotel is very peaceful retreat in the midst of the buzz of Jodhpur city. The rooms are very beautifully furnished, and so are the alleys. The hotel is surrounded by trees at the entrance leading to an open air dining area which is fantastic. They have a nice pool too.

This was our 7th stay at Ratan Vilas since 2000 when it was a tiny 6 room hotel. It is a family run hotel and you are made to feel special as soon as you enter the grounds. We have stayed in many different rooms over the years and have been happy with all from standard to deluxe and now... More

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

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
