I booked the hotel via cleartrip and even though the booking confirmed airport pickup and drop, the hotel refused to oblige initially, so we took a rickshaw to the hotel. We were given rooms (3 rooms) but were constantly told that they are the best and the most expensive rooms, etc and cleartrip gave it very cheap to us and so on... Why? Why tell us?
I called cleartrip that evening and was kept on hold for a good 25 minutes while they resolved the airport drop with the hotel while we checked out. One problem solved.
The rooms looked quite ok and only upon actually using them does one realize the problems it had. The bed covers and sheets had tiny holes in them. Well, I overlooked that and went about out trip to sightsee places in Jodhpur.
On the last day, we checked out towards the holiday season (supposedly a peak season time as it was Diwali too) and while we were waiting in the lounge (below the stair case) for our flight timing, we saw the management selling those same rooms for as less as Rs. 750 to foreigners, while I paid almost double for the same via Cleartrip.
The restaurant is on the top floor and the view of the Mehrangarh fort is great. They also had some folk music and dance performances which was a great relief from all the boiling tension after check-in. As it was Diwali, the fireworks show was excellent too and the rooftop was the best place to be. Since its a roof top restaurant, its almost 3-4 floors upstairs and difficult for old people to climb, like my senior citizen parents, but the restaurant had room service and delicious food too.
