“Amazing stay ( with a twist of Bollywood )”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went to Jodhpur for a short weekend trip and Taj was a default choice.
The hotel is good and the rooms are nice. We had all our meals at their restaurants and found the food good. I personally felt that this hotel needs to come out of the "Vivanta" branding of the Taj group , as Vivanta hotels are a huge dissapointment and have a horrid service.
The best part about our stay was that we got to see many bollywood celebs like Tabu , Sonali Bendre , Saif Ali Khan and Neelam who were staying here. All the guests at the hotel had a gala time thanks to the continuous hustle bustle and the media frenzy that came along.
The hotel also observed the Earth Hour and invited all guests next to the pool for a complimentary round of drinks and snacks. They decorated the hotel beautifully with candles.
Would love to return.

Dear Mr Verma,

Thank you so much for taking out time to type this positive review. It is so encouraging to learn that young Indian travelers like yourself are happy to stay with us and their default choice is Taj. It is also satisfying to be able to maintain your confidence in us and exceed expectations in many areas.
I have also noted your views on our "Vivanta" brand. You are more than welcome to write to me on this subject on gmvivanta.harimahal@tajhotels.com.

I was on a one-day business trip and got a good rate from the Taj Vivanta Jodhpur online the previous day. The building is magnificent and the property is very well maintained. They have an impressive lobby. The staff is extremely polite and always ready to help. The rooms are large and done up in traditional Rajasthani heritage style. The accessories and bed covers add a feeling of old-world luxury to the rooms. Everything was just so perfect in the room including their Neem and Aloe Vera body wash. The bath area was also spacious with good shower pressure and temperature. The breakfast was nice and their restaurant served excellent Laal-maas (traditional red lamb curry) for dinner. I would highly recommend this Hotel for both Tourists as well as business travellers to the Blue city!

Dear Sir,
Thank you so much for taking out time to type this positive review about our hotel. I am very happy to know that we have come up to the expectations of an avid traveller to exotic destinations like your good self. Though we would want to strive harder to get those 3 more stars in your rating.
I am sure such an insightful review will help many amateur travelers too. You have rightly observed that the building architecture is amazingly attractive and the amenities have been designed and selected at give the good old world charm.
May I also mention that your profile comments are also very interesting and inspiring especially the ones on the life and attitude. I must mention that you have an amazing sense of photography too. I liked all of them especially the moods of giraffe.

Wishing you all the good luck

We had some problems because our driver didn't find the hotel right away but once we got there...wow...a beauty. The staff was very friendly and gave us all the respect. Fast check in and escorted to our pool view room. Big room that was, very nice and clean, the bathroom gave us another wow feeling.. The pool was big, clean and very refreshing..no pigeons here because they hang big nets over the pool. The restaurant was perfect, for breakfast buffet, which was big and also for dinner. Staff keeps asking if they can help. Theres a show with music, dancers and a magician..definatly have a look that. Its great, amazing and funny. I rented a taxi from hotel which was easy and not that expensive..ofcourse outside taxis are cheaper but thats a choice you make. Its easy when you want to visit things, nothing is far away from the hotel. And it was my birthday a month after i was there but the hotel did not forget and send me an email with best wishes..thanks for that.

Jodhpur is the city of hospitality. Each evening each woman cooks enough for her family plus two extra meals in case anybody visits and wishes to sit down with the family. If their are no visitors then she takes the food into the street and gives it to a beggar. If the beggars don't need it then she feeds it to the livestock. This is the pattern of Jodhpur hospitality.
And this culture of hospitality is apparent in the tone of this modern hotel with its heritage of opulence from the Maharajas. It is owned and operated by the king but he lives off site.
However, the dedicated staff do him proud. For example, the dining room supervisor, Uma learned that I had bought a sari so she kindly offered to come and show me how to wear it. She did and everyone in the dining room complemented me. That makes you feel good. Here the service is happily and freely given with a smile. The rooms are as big and airy as their attitudes and the swimming pool and surrounds beautiful.
If the magician happens to be doing his show in the court yard take the time to see it. It is both amazing and very funny.

Room Tip: If Riyafat Ali is doing his magician's show in the courtyard, go see it and enjoy a real belly l...

It was my first trip to Jodhpur and I was looking for a decent accomodation for one night near the airport. I am familar with the Taj chain so my preference for the property was natural. Hari Mahal's location was an instant advantage and so I booked myself for the night of the 4th of May'13.

I had a pool facing room on the 1st floor with a splendid view of the large pool.

The decor is good, well maintained and the rooms are large. The large windows allow sufficient light into the rooms. The ambience is befitting a "Mahal" and lifts your spirits.

I suggest that one tries the local dishes at the "Latitude".

Room Tip: overlooking the pool

You have rightly pointed out that this Hotel is so well located and is not far from anything that a person comes here for. Apart from the splendid pool view we have also maintained the gardens for the garden facing rooms.

The lobby of the hotel is a bit decadent but with very much captivation. The rooms are magnificent, wide and perfectly decorated, as the bathroom, with all the services that a hotel of this category deserves. The swimming pool is equally a must and its service is in line. Probably what less I liked was the Chinese restaurant, but the bar is delicious
