I've been in this guest house in November 2012. I spent two nights with this lovely family and I enjoyed it very much. First of all, the guest house is in the deep centre of the old Jodhpur, at walking distence from most of the attractions. Our room was quite large, clean and very colourful, and I wish we had more like this in our staying in India... They also have a lovely rooftop restaurant with a gorgeous sight on the Mehrangarh Fort. I've been in other rooftops in Jodhpur, but the Hem's one was my favourite for the angle on the fort and I took great pictures from there.
As I said people are very helpful and give you plenty of information about the city and how to reach the main landmarks. Moreover I had a chance to have a cooking lesson with Miss. Hem, and it had been absolutely lovely!
The only glitch was that it's quite near a temple, and at 5.00 a.m. we were awaken by the drums of the temple. The room was on the street and any time a motorbike passed by the window you could hear them blowing their damn horn. At 6.00 a guy started walking around the street screaming like a crazy (he was selling some sort of tea).
So, inspite the bad sleep quality, I suggest this place if you can find a room far from the street!
