Simply the best in all of India. Amazing rooms, FOOD, comfort, cleanliness and Saajan and his family are quite possibly the nicest, friendly and most genuine people we met in our 2 months around India. Would travel back to Jodphur just to spend more nights here. A place for anyone and everyone

Mr. Singh is a great and ethusiastic host indeed. The room and the atmosphere was one of the nicest we have had on our trip through Rajasthan and Kerala. Besides, we have been provided with very good guidance on what to see in the city and how travel to our next destination.

Big recommendation! Thank you Mr. Singh for welcoming us - Reshma & Christian

Very nice and hospitable host, they put you at ease the moment you enter the home and room. They try and make the stay as comfortable as possible. Excellent rooms with really thoughfully prepared breakfast and extremly healthy. The host can give you oodles of knowledge about the rajputana history, mewar culture etc etc. There is absolutely nothing to crib about this place while some how i feel its slighly on the high end accomodation for a homestay.

This was the best place we stayed in India. And we did stay on a lot of nice hotels. The owner is very helpful. The room was charming and had a very big bathroom with hot water. Also you can tap drinking water. The meals we had were wonderful and we wished, that we could have stayed for more nights.

The welcome we had was so warm and friendly. The roof top had a fantastic view. You feel like staying in a home, but you still have the amenities you get in a hotel.

Spent 2.5 days at Surya Kunj B&B in Jodhpur and was very pleased with the stay. The room is inside the home on second floor and the entrance is through the family's main door (as opposed to other B&B where the room may be an attachment to main home). The 2nd floor has about 4 rooms. The room i stayed in was spacious & clean with its own toilet and shower. The hot water was plenty. The family offers breakfast and dinner. The meals were delicious indian dishes. There is internet available on the second floor. Sajjan Singh, the head of the family, is very friendly and seems to really enjoy talking about Indian politics and history. The home is close to the center, a 10 min cab ride from the fort. For 1,800 rupees, its a very good deal in my view. NB: The owner has a large dog that is well behaved. I am definitely not a dog lover, yet had no issues/no concerns.

Had a night stay , though I arrived quiet late in the night was welcomed well by host with smile and tea. He is also quiet informative in providing information as per the interest of the clients. The Rooms ae fantastic, clean and well maintained, Big bath rooms and good wardrobes in the room to store all the stuff. However the room which was provided to me is closer to the dining area if there are other people using the dining then it tends to be noisy. Also I felt that the dining location cant accomodiate more than 2 guests at a time. Also faced problem with parking facilities for the car if there is more than one car. On the overall the facilites and cleaness overrides all the minor hiccups faced.

We had a delightful stay at Surya Kunj while on holiday in Jodhpur. After looking at the hotel options in the historic town, we chose this home-stay after many recommendations on the Mahindra Homestays website.

It turned out to be a great decision, as our 2-night stay here was one of the reasons why we liked Jodhpur. Our charming hosts ensured that we don’t miss out on any of the ‘must-see’ places in town, & also gave us insights into the fascinating history of the region. Small things like shopping tips, advice on food options & other info make a huge difference in turning a ‘good’ trip into a ‘great’ one, & it happened due to the hosts at Surya Kunj.

Logistically too, the place is conveniently located, not too far from the railway station / airport. The rooms are well-kept & common dining area is charming. Will definitely go back!
