Its small basic heritage property in the heart of Jodhpur that suits to budget class travellers. Though not very old, it still claims to be a heritage property as the owner of the place was secretary to the royal durbar. Yet it tries to leave its distinct style of rajasthani culture with modern footprints. It wishes to carve a niche... More

On the Rocks, a restaurant near the Ajit Bhawan hotel, has great food and ambience. It was chilly at night in Jan., but this place has those nice little campfires close to the tables. Best tandoori I had in Rajasthan. Veg options were also way above average. Worth the price. Umaid Palace....We tried this place out just for the experience... More

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. This hotel is a really nice heritage hotel, nicely restored, full of nice furniture and pictures of the family. The staff is very friendly, the service is excellent (laundry for instance) and the rooms are huge! We had a big room, with a large tv, balcony, fridge, coffee and tea and a clean... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to travellers who seek something more than the sameness provided by hotel chains. This heritage hotel with echoes of a distant past is managed by its original owners and this is reflected in all aspects of the detail. The rooms are furnished in period pieces providing a glimpse of a bygone... More

Heritage hotel, basic facilities & dining area. Didn't try the pool. Location a bit far from town so dining options were limited. Wi-fi VERY slow, available in hotel lobby only. Took 1.5hrs to download a 10 second video to Facebook. Comfortable enough & staff were friendly.

Thanks for your review Sir, But Karni Bhawan is in one of the central location in the posh area of Defence, Two Kilometers away from Umaid Bhawan Palace, 1.5 Kilometers from Ajit Bhawan and Ranbanka & the VIP Circuit House Road. As for the restaurants in the vicinity of 3-4 KM's, there are quite a few but either the clients’... More

Well-kept grounds and also the rooms. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful (especially one who may have been the manager or assistant manager, who saved us from the dread buffet dinner by giving us an excellent la carte dinner accompanied by every kind of delicious bread at an incredibly reasonable price, have to admit we had been...

Spent substantial number of days in this hotel. Was looked after very well. Personal touch by owners and staff is overwhelming. Clean room, hygienic bed linen and tasty Indian food are big plus points of this hotel. The traditional/royal decor of this heritage hotel gives a very nice experience.

This hotel offers the prerequisites for an overnight stay or two but is featureless and somewhat utilitarian. Rooms were adequate, although the duvet provided was thinnish. The shower room was clean. Food was reasonable. Service was quirky and the front desk disorganized, manned by people who couldn't speak English. The Credit Card machine was inoperative which we only found out... More

Thanks for your review Sir, The Credit Card machine was fine. However, due to municipal manehole digging a number of BSNL lines were down and hence swipe machine could not work. We still humbly apologies for the inconvenience caused and wish to welcome them soon again. More

Stayed with family for a night. The property is owned by chief secretary of the Maharaja of Jodhpur (he is second most powerful person of the state). All across pictures of him, Maharaja, dignitaries etc. create an aura of heritage. It’s a reasonably priced clean property with attentive and warm staff. The place seems to be quite popular with French... More
