“An overrated property with inefficient management”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I booked this hotel based on some of the good reviews provided on tripadvisor site. First of all, this is an extremely overrated hotel. By no measures that this can be qualified as 3 star hotel. During my visit, many amenities were out of order like door bell, water flow, NO warm water, TV+remote, restaurant AC, limited breakfast to count a few. Food / Drinks (Tea/hot Milk) was also extravagantly charged.
Even after checking out the hotel, we were not sure who was the manager of hotel. To our surprise, we found that person via whom we booked our room, was actually an ex-employee of the hotel. Not only that he provided false information during booking the room but was also least bothered to try and solve the problem in hand. Somehow we managed to sort the things; but by then lines were already crossed.
Lessons learnt: first - Always ask for a hotel landline no. instead of relying on mobile no. of an individual hotel staff and second - Get granular and written confirmation of package inclusions.

The only good thing about hotel was its service staff who tried to put their hearts to meet our requirements; but they were obviously limited to the hotel services available in hand. I hope that new management would learn a lesson here. Given my experience I would certainly not recommend the hotel at this price.

Room Tip: Always check the water flow and geyser in the room. In my room, bed was old and very noisy. Check Do...

Had to book the place on a short notice as no other hotel was available.
Got a terrible room on check-in n after threatening to cancel the booking, was given a slightly better room.
Tv remote didnt work, tiles in the bathroom were broken, hand shower next to the flush didn't work.
The only 2 things good were - clean towels, bed sheets and the location, but finding it is impossible as no one knows the place, best is to ask for Umed club.
Not worth the place for this price

The stay @ Megh Niwas indeed embarked us on a journey to the glorious and luxurious past of Rajputs. The Hotel is beautifully structured with rooms that are lavishly decorated. The staff is helpful and provide immaculate service. The best point of our stay was our dinner under the star lit sky on the roof top restaurant on the Hotel. A good place to enjoy ur stay.

Hi i have stayed at Megh Niwas on 22 Nov'11 and 23 Nov'11, hotel is beautifully build, good rooms. The USP of the property is the open air roof top restaurant having Fort and Umed Bhawan Palace view which looks so beautiful during night.............

Staff is very friendly u feel like staying at home........

Inspite of having confirmed full advance paid booking made through Hotel.com, room was not given to us. Later we came across one more family which had same experince at the hotel. It seems they oversell their room inventory. Travel Sites like Hotel.com should avoid such unprofessional hotels as it gives bad name to them also.

When we visited Jodhpur, Megh Niwas was undergoing renovation work. The rooms have excellent decor and a very traditional look. Some basic necessities like wardrobes / racks were missing but overall the rooms were great.

The food is excellent. The rooftop restaurant has a wonderful view of the city with the Mehrangarh fort and the Jaswant thada clearly visible. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Definitely a great place to stay

Room Tip: Lift was unavailable when we visited and the first floor under renovation. I would advise ground flo...

My partner and I stayed in this hotel whilst on a month long visit across India. I must say this hotel was an absolute hidden delight and provided welcome relief after a bad experience at a hotel in Delhi. It offers excellent value for money, including beautiful deco both inside and out, including a lovely outside garden area with a swimming pool, swinging seat and garden tables and chairs. We loved coming out here after a busy day to relax and surprisingly it was very peaceful considering the hotel is situated in quite a lively area. The room itself was great, a good size. The service was excellent and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised that the staff didn’t try to push us to use their taxi service or other amenities at extra costs and instead were extremely helpful in giving us information to get out and about on our own. Great location, not too far from the train station and a rickshaw ride away from the main attractions. Overall, we highly recommend this hotel is you are planning a visit to Jodhpur.
