Fantastic hotel, both the lobby and rooms were stunning. TV had international cable channels. Hotel staff were very helpful, checkin was done in the room. Bed was very comfortable. Complimentary fruit. There seemed to be a lack of powerpoints, but you can ask for an extension.
Breakfast was one of the best that I've had.
Security is very tight outside the hotel gate.

A hotel from another time. Heritage style but with Western sensibilities. Setting is beautiful. Service was good. .Lobby areas breathtaking, but room had musty, mold odor. Food was very disappointing.

Always makes a difference when a hotel has high ceilings and spacial corridors.
Second floor room overlooking the pool. Noise from street muffled, could not see the grime of
Jodhpur streets. amazing how the pool area is netted so birds won't be able crap in the pool.
did try the spa. one hour relaxing massage, first 10 minutes is in the steam room not my thing so
I sat out but would be a good idea to mention it on booking.
We ate 2 dinners and had breakfast included.
variety for both plus good range of drinks in the bar..
First Taj hotel so not able to compare but as far as other 5 star hotels around the world thought ok.
Remember you are in India and anything is possible or not!

Dear Madam,

Thank you so much for posting this positive review and for specifically mentioning about your experience with the room, spaciousness of the hotel, encased pool area with net, food apart from the spa experience. I regret that this was not clarified that the steam is an additional offer given to our guests who come for treatments and is not included in the treatment time.

We are delighted to understand your first experience with Taj hotel was very good and we do hope you continue to patronize this most successful and largest Indian hotel chain.

With lots of best wishes

When you book a stay in a Taj Group property anywhere, the expectations are always higher compared to any other property. The legendary Taj hospitality and excellent maintainance of the property is taken for granted. We experienced this in Kerala and expected the same in Jodhpur.

We were part of a large wedding group and stayed from 23.01 to 26.01.14. The first jolt was when we reached the hotel, the room allotted to us was not ready. Surprised, as booking was done months in advance. The large hotel lobby looked pretty ordinary.

Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the garden or the side lawns and the trees obstructed whatever view was beyond. Fairly nice, comfortable and large room with separate beds for a palace hotel but nothing extra ordinary! Period style writing table, chair, drawers and bed headset combined with ordinary looking closet doors and other fittings were a rather jarring and not very pleasing to the eye. Bathroom okayish with a bathtub but ceiling plaster could be seen cracking and paint running over. tut! tut!

The good part though, being a palace hotel is plenty of space, corridors running all over, paintings adorning the walls, sitting areas outside rooms. Nice well appointed bar and cafeteria/restaurant.

Being part of a wedding meant we had littel time to enjoy the spa (as always booked) or the pool or any of the other facilities but housekeeping services were excellent and so was the service in the restaurant - friendly but slow! Food nothing great to talk about. Pretty average stuff.

All in all, high on expectations but low on delivery. Disappointed? Well somewhat, but feel have not done full justice to the property due to our constraints of time.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are much better.

We stayed in the hotel during our Rajasthan trip in Janurary. The hotel is nice with good attractions. We stayed in pool view room on the second floor. The view from the room was nice looking at the pool which is located in the middle of the hotel. As always the staff is very cordial and nice. The hotel is clean and tidy. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel has got recreation centre for kids where the children can enjoy. The spa of the hotel is also good. The food is alos nice. It has got two restaurant. The quantity of the servicing in the hotel is lilttle issue as you cannot plan the food for the group in Ala Carte. To me it seems the quantity is very less. Rest the experience in the hotel is very nice.

This was a leisure trip with friends, like the service and guidance provided by the hotel and it's staff. Best part is their restaurant offering food with local flavors, must try out . Friendly staff add value to this heritage property.
