In a country traditionally known for its hospitality, Ratan Vilas is one of the few hotels in India upholding this spirit. Aesthetic, native, laden with modern day comforts along its wonderfully courteous staff and reasonable prices, makes a stay in Ratan Vilas truly special.
Undoubtedly one of my best experiences with the hospitality industry in India.

We absolutely loved our short time here - the best hotel we stayed in during our 14 day trip to Rajasthan. The service was fantastic, both the manager and the other staff could not do enough to help. The hotel itself is very clean, comfortable and peaceful. And the food, oh the food, was so fantastic. We highly recommend this hotel.

So peaceful in the heart of the city.
Lovely pool that you could spend all day in.
Nice garden where lovely food is severed at the desired relaxed pace.
Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to all.

We loved our 3 nights here. The main thing is that the staff are very nice. The hotel is very peaceful and the rooms are well laid out around a central courtyard. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant on a couple of occasions and the breakfast was superb. Definitely recommend this place :-)

We stayed here for 2 nights. On our first night, we had a Superior room, which was lovely. The room was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large and very nice. On our second night, we had to move to a Budget room as the Superior room was booked. The room was nice, although the bathroom was a bit small and could use an update. It is worth booking a Superior room as it doesn't cost that much more. The communal areas were well maintained and the pool is lovely, with comfortable sun loungers. The breakfast buffet was really good and we were also impressed with the evening buffet, which was really good value. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The Superior rooms are well worth the extra money and are good value.

Its has been a year since we visited Rajasthan, And even after more than a year, we remember with fondness the ambience, the environment, the friendliness and homely atmosphere of Ratan Vilas. Mr. Brijraj Singhji and his staff went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant and memorable as possible. Food and rooms were just awesome. I have recommended Ratan Vilas to many of my friends who plan to visit Rajasthan and Jodhpur especially.

Many thanks to Mr. Brijraj Singhji and his staff.

Best Regards

My wife and I stayed for two nights. We enjoyed our stay and were very happy with our choice. The hotel is very elegant and located well about 5 km. from the fort. It is an oasis in another busy and noisy Indian city. There's a beautiful pool which we unfortunately didn't use as it was still cold when we visited. There are plenty of places to relax in the garden or interior common areas. The staff are very courteous and helpful except for maybe the bellboys who make their eagerness for tips too obvious. Overall, it's a very professional yet friendly and helpful operation.
We had a suite which was spacious with a large bathroom located on the first floor. The breakfast was one of the best we had in India and dinner was good as well but took long to arrive as all the guests seem to eat at the hotel in the evenings. The hotel arranged forward travel for us and made a reservation with Bishnoi Village Safari for us. I wrote a separate review for them and do recommend the tour. We took tuk tuks to and from the sights in town and would highly recommend a rickshaw driver by the name of Rishi who is always just outside the hotel gate. He was by far the most honest rickshaw driver we found in our travels. He speaks English fluently. Just ask for him at the hotel if you would like him to show you around town. There's a beer/wine/spirits store relatively close to the hotel as well as an Anokhi store for shopping. There is nothing not to like about this good value hotel!

Room Tip: suites are more spacious
