Devi Bhawan

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Our stay here was wonderful in every way. The hotel has its various rooms spread around a large garden with old trees, fountains etc arranged such that every room has a balcony or a verandah overlooking the greenery. We stayed on the 1st floor, with a large family room that had its own large balcony. The room itself was very well furnished in authentic style. The bathroom was large too.

We had arrived very early morning (5am) by the night train from Jaipur, so on arrival we were asked to stay in the large drawing room for a while since they had no free rooms. The drawing room was done up very tastefully, with period furniture and photographs. We took the time to walk around the lush lawns and garden at dawn, with everyone else asleep. We got our room by the time we had finished breakfast, and it was worth the wait.

Food was quite good and we ended up having all breakfast and dinner here because it was convenient and tasty, and the garden location was really relaxing. We returned quite late one day and wondered if it was too late for dinner as the restaurant was closing but it was not a problem, the staff accommodated us patiently without rushing things.

The hotel is run by a smart young couple who are very friendly and helpful. This place totally deserves its listing in Alistair Sawday's 'Memorable places to stay' India edition - which is where we had come across it in the first place.

Only one minor and weird complaint - we found that in both our own bathroom and the communal one next to the drawing room, the ceramic toilet pan was not fixed to the floor properly, so it had a worrying tendency to rock like a table on an uneven floor - giving you the most unexpected shock as you reach for the loo roll :-)

The pool looked very clean, although we did not use it. And don't forget to ask for a look at the owner's restored 1940's Wilys Jeep in mint condition, which is in the private section of the garden.

We really enjoyed our stay - it isn't setup like a regular hotel - more like apartments within a large garden. Our room was large with a shower that needed time to heat up before it could be used.

The restaurant and staff were lovely - not as sophisticated (or as expensive) as others we have visited in India - which made it all the more pleasant. There were no tour groups and the atmosphere was very relaxed - an oasis not too far from the centre. It doesn't seem to be walking distance to anything however so keep that in mind if that is important.

We stayed here for 2 nights in November and we loved the really huge size of the room, washroom and the balcony.The garden where we had our breakfast was beautiful and the staff was very friendly. Of course,some improvements could be made in the bathroom fittings and the food could be a bit better.The TV wans't working. Otherwise, it is a clean,peaceful,beautiful and affordable stay.

Room Tip: Upper floor superdeluxe rooms

I staid 2 nights in this hotel. The hotel has beautiful gardens and all the rooms are ground floor units. To get to the rooms you walk through the gardens along different paths. It is very peaceful. The rooms were clean and spacious. The restuarant is excellent, I sat on the patio which was right next to the gardens and had my breakfast. An excellent way to start your day. The price was very reasonable around $39 per night including breakfast.

Devi Bhawan is an outstanding property in Jodhpur. We stayed there for 2 nights for our family vacation in December 2012 and it was much better than what we expected. The rooms were tastefully done up with lots of colour thrown around. The food was good and service was impeccable. The best part of it was the moment you enter the property, it's a different world out there!. The stone facade of the buildings amidst the lush garden transfers you to a bygone era. A word of praise for the Manager Mr. Rakesh Singh. He understands the needs of the travellers and actually reminds you of erstwhile Marwar royalty.

We stayed here one night, and wished we were there for longer. This old-fashioned hotel, almost like a guest house, is set in the midst of beautiful gardens, and is calm and cool and restful. The place has tastefully done up interiors with a lot of interesting antique furniture, clean and comfy rooms and bathrooms, and a very friendly staff. The manager, Mr Rakesh Singh, was particularly helpful and warm, and seems to take pride in running the place well. The food was a bit slow in arriving but very good. The place has wi-fi. Devi Bhawan is very close to the airport, hardly ten minutes away, so that's very convenient. The tariff is reasonable as well. We'll definitely stay here if we ever go back to Jodhpur!

We loved this hotel for the warmth it exudes. The rooms are decent sized, the washrooms are good sized, the staff is courteous and warm and quick in their services. The food is excellent and one of the best amongst all the places we've eaten in Rajasthan. You must try the Ker Sangri sabji. It's awesome. The gardens are close to the rooms and therefore adds to the beauty.

The best part of this hotel is that it is very Eco friendly. They do not have solar so we do not have to waste water to get hot water. The geysers are right sized for 2 people to have a bath. I loved this place and would definitely want to go back there soon.
