This is a highly impressive hotel in every way. Its right in the old city of Jodhpur, a combination of restored haveli and modern buildings that you wouldnt think could work until you see it. From a typical north Indian narrow street you enter a courtyard and then the reception with its lovely welcome (beautifully airconditioned!), jasmine smells and warm greeting from staff.
We stayed in a duplex suite in the modern building with what must surely be the best view in Jodhpur from both the bed and the upstairs balcony - the whole of the fort in front of us. Absolutely everything in the room was in perfect working order, a well maintained hotel - as were all other facilities. Spa was great. We loved the food, wonderful breakfasts with a wide selection (a la carte as out of season but I prefer this to a buffet), all well presented and fresh. The food is quite a bit more expensive than elsewhere in the old city but the standard was I felt much better so well worth it.
Much has been written by other reviewers about how lovely it is and I would agree.The service in this hotel deserves a further mention, the staff immediately knew our names, when my daughter's trousers needed a repair these were mended for us without any charge, then staff were courteous and helpful throughout.
So all in all....Raas has completely spoilt us with the wonderful experience.. and we would love to return if ever in Jodhpur again.

Room Tip: We were in the new block nearest the reception - all the issues about noise are from the block next to the mosque. Our sleep was not disturbed at all.

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in India in January 2012. It was our first visit, and we stayed at the following hotels in order: Leela Palace (Delhi), Raas Haveli (Jodhpur), The Serai (near Jaisalmer), Oberoi Udaivilas (Udaipur), and Imperial Hotel (Delhi).

The Raas was really a 4.5 rating for me. It was my 3rd favorite spot among these 5 hotels, narrowly beating out the Oberoi and far outperforming the Imperial, but not quite as polished as Serai or Leela Palace.

Raas has a lot of personality, and really the vibe of this place is what makes it. The juxtaposition between Jodhpur's chaos and Raas' tranquility is fantastic. That's a dichotomy I've encountered in other parts of the world, but it gets to me each time. Jodhpur, and India in general, are particularly bustling and disorganized, so maybe the calm courtyard of Raas had extra impact.

Our room at Raas was the main thing keeping the experience from being 5 stars. If you stay here, BE SURE to get a room that has windows facing the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort! We booked one of the suites, and it was more expensive than some of the other rooms. While it was very spacious, it was dark - surprising given the copious light available outside! The room was also made of rough concrete, making walking around in the dark a bit challenging and uncomfortable. Combined with not enough natural light was some poor design elements. The suite had a beautiful separate room containing only a bathtub, but despite having plenty of space, the tub was not really big enough for 2 adults. Not sure why? And again, the space was rather dark. There was a lovely outdoor deck, but given the layout it was surrounded on all sides by walls and the Fort was not visible. They had cleverly placed a mirror on one wall, so you can see the Fort in the reflection. But, this was rather a disappointment.

We caught a glimpse of the regular rooms, as the hotel allowed us a vacant room to get freshened up in (a very nice effort) before ours was ready. They were more modern and this one even had a nice lawn in the back. Again, book the right room (near reception with views of the Fort) and you'll be happier.

The courtyard of the Raas is just spectacular and we spent a good amount of time here enjoying breakfasts, snacks, drinks and generally relaxing. It is landscaped beautifully with various semi-private seating areas and of course the Fort in the background is simply amazing. Food offerings were fine, nothing outstanding but certainly good.

Overall the service at Raas was well-run. They set up everything we asked and made the experience enjoyable. We used the Raas tuk-tuk and took a nice afternoon tour. Our guide was very friendly and showed us places in Jodhpur that would be quite difficult to find alone. Beautiful vistas of the blue side of the city were a particular highlight.

A note must be made about the incredibly loud call to prayer that happens at the mosque next door. As loud as you imagine it might be, it is louder. And it can happen at unfortunate times of day, befitting the prayer schedule. It's hard to fault Raas for this, as their position in the city is remarkable in so many ways. Usually the prayer is fairly short, just a couple of minutes. But we did experience one 30-45 minute version, which became quite grating. Basically, someone is shouting through an amplifier very near you, so it's a little much. Again, I don't hold this against the Raas, but you should take note if you feel it will bother you.

Overall, I can't imagine a better stay in Jodhpur for those looking to be in the heart of the city. Raas is highly recommended and memorable. Just be advised of the room situation and you're sure to enjoy.

Room Tip: Choose a regular room near reception with views of Fort! Don't fall for the amazing suite pictures online.

Raas is one of the top quality hotels in town. Celebrated my first wedding anniversary and everything was just superb. Staff is very enthusiastic,keen and helpful. Food is sumptuous and menu is quite versatile. Whether you sit in baradari or open balcony you would enjoy every bit of it. Well done guys it's hidden gem in jodhpur. Very good property and thum up to niklendra for designing beautiful property like this.

Definitly the best hotel of our trip in Rajasthan. Rooms are large, well decorated and with a breathtaking view on the Jodphur fortress. Staff is extremely efficient, nice and not too present.
Swimming pool is a dream. Spa is wonderful. I do really not see any bad impression during my stay.

From the outside it doesn't look like the kind of hotel that is going to impress; it's in the heart of a crowded, noisy city. As soon as you go through reception and into the courtyard, you enter a different world. The view of the fort, particularly at night when you dine under the stars, is breath-taking. The room was lovely, modern, light and comfortable. Everything about the hotel and the garden is wonderful except the one thing they can't control and that is the intrusion of the very loud loud-speakers from the adjacent mosque, broadcasting the prayers. The main issue for us was the evening sermon which went on for over half an hour both evenings we were there while we were eating outside. Other than that it was perfect.
