“Safe and Friendly in the suburbs”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

As a solo middle aged foreigner travelling in India for the first time, I really enjoyed staying here. The hosts were very helpful. When my waitlisted train seat fell through, assisted in finding an alternative and arranged for assistance to ensure I was on the right bus. Some distance from the old city but close to the airport in an clean suburb (en route to the current palace). Shops & ATM just up at the corner (as well as a great Indian Restaurant). Very Clean and done up in blue.

We stayed in Ganesham Guest House for 2days from the 23-12-2012 to 24-12-2012. As we booked online from Expedia, we didn't feel the need to confirm our booking over the telephone as the booking was already confirmed by expedia. We were a family of 7 so we booked 2 standard room with double bed, 3 people in each room, which was confirmed at the time of booking online. Our train reached before time to Jodhpur and we went early morning at 6am to the hotel, only to find out that it wasn't our check in time. The owner was annoyed to see us dat early, he opened his gate aftr a gap of 15-20mts, he was not even courteous enough to understand that we had a 1 yr old small kid with us and it was chilling cold in the morning. He made us stand in his reception area for half n hr, discussing terms and conditions and how our check in time is only 12am, and he can't give us any room. After an argument of half an hr he agreed to give one room but only for 3 people, and rest 3 need to stay out. He also told us that we need to pay for the 3rd person extra charge as its a double bed room and more than 2 ppl are not allowed. But this condition was not made by expedia at the time of online booking and we had already paid for 3 people online through expedia. He put a condition on us if we all wanted to stay in one room until we get our rooms by check in time, we had to pay the cost for 2 rooms which was 900rs just for using his room for 4hrs. As we had no option all 7of us checked in one room and paid double the amount even though we had booked and paid for the other 2 rooms online. The room was big but very small bathroom, with no mirror, drinking water in the room. We had to ask for hot water several times. They provided us one mattress but charged 600rs for that too. When we checked out we ended up paying 1700rs extra just for 2 days stay, while we had already paid online for 2days stay. Frankly speaking guys this place is not good for family at all. A suggesstion to all of you this place is nothing more than a money collecting guest house.

Mr. gowardhan, Approx. 100 happy families check-out in every month. You know everything but you don’t want to accept anything. You know very well , you want early check-in, you know very well, a room have double bed for two person but you don’t want to accept it. Your train reach at jodhpur from jaisalmer at 5 AM in the morning. You are travelling with 7 member in December season holiday time with Childs. You have to book your room one day prior so we keep your room vacant and ready for early check-in. but you book rooms one day later. I give you one room which is semi-deluxe spacious but you don’t want to pay according to term and condition clearly written “EARLY CHECK-IN IS SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY AND CHARGEABLE FOR HALF DAY” in a invoice. Second you know very well you book a room with expedia company “A STANDARD ROOM WITH DOUBLE BED” and you want to try to stay three person in a single room without paying extra-bed charges. You want to save money my friend and invite trouble for family.

The guesthouse was recommended by a friend (christian) of mine who really adored about it and how it's managed. I can just confirm that.
I startet my trip to India in Jodhpur. So i needed a lot of help in organization stuff like buying a motorcycle.
Jeetu, the owner, spent a lot of time helping me wherever he could.
Coffee and breakfast is offered all time by his wife (to a cigarette :-) )
You can really feel beeing at home at this family run guesthouse with an ambient atmosphere!
Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms.
a real welcoming place. I warmly recommend this place.

A beautiful hotel in Jodhpur. As a family of four we had a spacious room in which two additional beds were placed.
We also had a large bathroom. and are perfect. The owner is very polite, correct, and helpfull. Definitely,
the place to go in Jodhpur.

Room Tip: semi-deluxe rooms are spacious & comfortable

It is more like a home, where rooms are given to guests....No restaurant, no staff just the owner and his wife. Located away from railway station (only 10 meters from main road though in a street) in NEW Jodhpur away from traditional market place, in a calm residential colony, but nearer to Umaid bhavan palace....Talking about room, it was big, double bed, AC, Lagre bathroom, CTV(dish not working), dressing table, Table, chairs, blanket and Rajai and carpet on floor. Bathroom was claen (western style), central hot water facility, tissue rolls, hand wash bottle and towels were there...We reached late at 9PM as opposed to 12PM, and owner told us that all the family members have gone to some local marriage so he can't even provide us tea...guest house is located in residential area so we did not tried to have dinner outside as there was no significant market there......overall guest house is clean but if u are looking to go with family, then u will face problem because of its isolation from market....

this place was fine for a couple of nights stay, the owner was on his mobile phone most of the time, even whilst checking us in. So getting any service is pretty slow. It seemed to us that they only employ one full time member of staff ( a 16 year old boy) who is responsible for all the cooking and cleaning, so understandably attention to detail is lacking as he seemed very stretched. Make sure you check the room first, as ours was not cleaned and had dirty bedsheets.

Decent no-frills accomodation.Helpful host mr Jeetender.One problem was lack of a heater.A small investment as the weather was very cold around 3degreesC.The hot water supply was erratic .Most of these shortcomings made up by a kind and helpful host.
