“Convenient for the station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2009

It's often necessary in Jodhpur to take an early train and if this is combined with the late train from Jaisalmer staying 4 minutes walk from the station can be a good idea. The Govind is a good choice in these circumstances. The entrance is a bit dark and gloomy but the rooms are OK. The rooftop restaurant serves the usual travellers fare and is good value. The hotel is probably best suited to backpackers but it is OK for 1 night in transit. Management and staff are friendly and helpful.

Govind Hotel is fantastic. The spotless rooms are very large, the bathrooms even bigger! Great location, only 5 min walk to the train station. The staff are so friendly and make you feel so welcome. The rooms were very quiet and you don't get disturbed by other people staying there and you can't hear any of the noise from the busy street below. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place, would recommend in a heartbeat.

This hotel has very good rooms, very clean and very confortable. The manager and all the staff are very welcoming and very helpful wich makes a very big difference. If you say that this hotel is very nicely located you can say that this is the place to stay in Jodhpur

My partner and I stayed in the Hotel Govind during our Indian leg of our around the world trip, We visited many hotels (budget & luxury) but the Govind was just what we need. The busy streets of India can take there toll, and thats the same in Jodphur. Although the govinds rooms are basic, there clean and safe. For us it was the roof terrace that made our stay amazing. You can look over most of the city with a beer and a meal and watch the hectic streets below. The train station is just outside too. Another bonus is the staff especially the owner, he sorted us out with train tickets and made us feel welcome 24/7.

Our initial plan was to spend 1 night in Govind, while in transit from Jaisalmer to Udaipur. For diferent reasons we ended stying 4 nights. Although the rooms are basic, they are very clean and confortable, having on top of this the BEST service that we could find in India! Mr Sohel, his son and the rest of staff were tireless in all the help and assistance that we might need - Thanks!

Great staff that went out of our way to help us, especially when we were unwell.
Walking distance to station and rooftop restaurant.

Good-sized room with air-con. Basic, but did the trick.

Internet cafe located under the guesthouse was really convenient.

I negotiate room 7 for 250Rps instead of 300Rps (May is off season). Considering that Indian hotels are average bad quality, this one worth the price. Jaggi, the boss, is very friendly and provide you advise without commercial interest (difficult to believe in India sometimes).
Shower: Clean, only hot shower but it is not specific to this hotel because May is so hot that natural water is hot.
AC, Fan: Maybe a little bit noisy but it does its job. At the present moment, 47 degrees Celsius in Jodhpur
Bed covers: Clean
Room look: walls should be repainted but it is ok.
Room noise: 7 is not in front of the main station road so it is ok. Choose your rooms because some should be in front of the station.
Restaurant: Take only breakfast on the rooftop with a nice view on the fort. It is ok.
Internet: Cybercoffee for 40rps/h OK (wireless connection was not available, my iphone was not happy :))

Last but not least, it was a great pleasure to discuss with Jaggi.

No need to take a rickshaw when arriving from main train station because it is only 4mn walk (go on the right when exiting station)
