When I am in jodhpur, I make it a point to stay here. Each year I stay here for an extended period of time. When I am at the durag niwas, I feel as if I were with my own family. It is my home away from home. Does not get any better than this.

I stayed in this guesthouse for 2 months since I was volunteering for Sambhali Trust. The whole experience was very succesfull and nice. In this hotel they help you with anything, provide you with free mosquito repellent, all the meals are included and you can ask for something specific if you want. The food is pretty good and the service... More

Food was delicious and so reasonably priced! Durag Niwas also does a lot of work with the Shambali trust, helping to improve the status... More

I have stayed at Durag Niwas many times over three or four years and recommend this place for women traveling alone. Its a great place to meet other women travelers and get a taste of real Rajput hospitality. The rooms are fit for a princess and the food is home cooked.

My relatives visited me in the month of March and i fixed their stay @ Durag Niwas. They all loved the place, as they felt welcomed and at home. The Home Stay is very very tastefully designed.

I spent three nights here doing my charitable work with the Sambahli Trust, and I would thoroughly recommend this traditional and atmospheric guest house. Everyone who works there always greets you with a warm smile. Stay there - you'll be helping a great cause.

I've been living at Durag Niwas for a month now (another one to go) and I feel absolutely at home there! Very friendly staff, will help you with anything you'd like and lovely people staying there long-term as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a clean, safe, comfortable place to stay at in Jodhpur, long or short term.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This household has always been welcoming guests and enjoying giving others hospitality for many years. We remember when we were very young boys our Grandpa hosted many parties of all the important local family including the Army, Police, Politicians and Royalty. We remember walking down the road being welcomed by the sound of laughter and music and we knew Grandpa was having another one of his parties! We have carried on this tradition ever since by welcoming guests and hoping that they experience some of the culture and traditions that happen throughout the year in an old traditional house including Diwali - festival of lights -, Holi - festival of colours - and many other celebrations. Established since 1990, Durag Niwas Guest House holds the reputation of being one of the oldest and first few guest houses in Jodhpur today - A Rajput family run guest house, a travelers home stay. At our home we wish to make your stay most comfortable and memorable, staying with our family you will experience the difference between staying at an ordinary guest house or hotel and staying with the hospitality and familiar atmosphere of a family run guest house. If you are staying somewhere else on your travel to Jodhpur you are always welcome to come over for tea, coffee or Coke or to use any of our services we offer. ... more   less
