This is a newly built hotel (2007), about 2 KM from Jodhpur airport, located at Paanch Batti roundabout, which has a cluster of hotels near it. I stayed there with a group participating in a tournament (October 2011), and there were other festivals happening in Jodhpur, so availability of rooms in good hotels was scarce. Despite this, we got a reasonable deal of Rs.3000/- for Deluxe rooms, and Rs.3500/- for Super Deluxe rooms, inclusive of Buffet Breakfast. This came after negotiations with the stern looking Manager- Mr. Nair. Once we asked him to 'smile' he obliged not only with a grin, but with a discount as well! The suites are well worth considering, because the price difference between the lowest priced room-Deluxe, and the Suites is not too much.
The reception lobby is nice, and its air conditioning is a big relief from the searing heat outside. The lift is small, but modern. The rooms are tidy, with ceramic tiling on the floors, and the bathrooms. The air conditioners are window type (Split in super Deluxe), so the pigeons that sit on them can cause some disturbance. The beds are comfortable, and the linen new and clean. The curtains are thin and do not block sunlight out effectively. The room is equipped with a mini refrigerator, LCD and wardrobe. The bathroom toiletries and towels are sub standard.
The Hotel is primarily vegetarian, but non-veg food can be arranged for groups. Food is strictly okay, and the Chinese sizzler is worth trying. The buffet breakfast is make-do, and foreigners might struggle. The bar is avoidable. I did not see the swimming pool (on the roof), but my companions say it was not clean.
Power outages were frequent, but the hotel has backup supply.
The staff is helpful and caring.
