Unmissible hotel with any kind of comforts,relaxing atmosphere,friendly and professional staff.
Good breakfast and nice dinner outside in the garden.
Such a beautiful room and hudge bathroom let me felt like a maharani.
Thanks to the manager for showing us all the accomodation in different styles.
Special thanks and greeting to the owner of the shop,inside of the hotel, for the good taste and charming pieces.

Ajit Bhawan is a lovely property in Jodhpur. Located right across from the Umaid Bhawan Palace and in the heart of the city we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The food is great. The rooms are modernistic and were warm despite the cold winter sweeping through North India. Definitely a place to revisit if we ever come back to Jodhpur. The vintage car display is a nice little highlight of the hotel.

Excellent accommodation well kitted out rooms, great bar ad swimming pool ( too cold to sample). Superb food in the garden restaurant although alfresco dining in winter can be challenging since the outdoor heaters cannot cope sufficiently

Ideal for a short stay of a couple of says

Frankly I wasn’t expecting much before I arrived at this hotel, but was soon nicely surprised. The facility is quite beautiful. The main building is a grand old regal structure, and there are many paintings of maharajas of the past. Some of the rooms are located in circular cottages that are a bit odd, but they work well enough. The beds are comfortable and sleep quality is high.

There is a very nice pool, and a large garden area where dinner is served. At night the dining area is nicely lit, with musicians playing Indian folk music in the center of the lawn. The hotel environment is truly an oasis amid the hustle bustle of Jodhpur. The service is very good all around.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Amit bhawan and enjoyed our stay here. The place is very nice, with lovely green areas, a great pool( water much too cold in December) and even a gym. Our room (mid level) was extremely nice, with a real sense of heritage built in- I don't know if that was authentic or not, but who cares). Quality products, big screen tv with decent channels and quiet enough. The staff were very nice - even the reception, which can be tough to find in India. The food was good, but perhaps not great. There is only one restaurant on the premises, but with enough selection. Location was good, close to the central market and within a 10 min drive to the fort. We would stay here again.

The Ajit Bhawan Palace Hotel is a very good option in Jodhpur. It is a tad expensive, but compared to similarly priced hotels, it comes out very high in both quality of accommodation and service. The staff are very discrete and non-intrusive. But they appear as soon as you need them. Very caring staff who go the extra mile- for example getting hot dishes that are not available in the breakfast buffet. They also have a vintage car ride (from their collection of cars) that is priced relatively high at 11000 rupees (about $200) for a 45 minute fixed route ride. They had very good outdoor dinner service while we were there, with bonfires to keep us warm.
