“Wonderful guesthouse”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

My brother and I spent a night at Surya Kunj. We were warmly greeted by Sajan and his family and staff. Sajan loves the culture and history of his country and has lots of interesting stories to tell. He has been extremely helpful to us, trying his best to make our short stay in Jodhpur as profitable as possible. He owns a big and comfortable house (with a nice dog living indoors). We enjoyed very much the time we spent there. We highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone visiting Jodhpur!

Dear Anne,
THANK YOU for much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to host you and to make your short stay memorable. Sabre went to your room after you left and was sad not to find you there! Our regards to Benjamin! Sajjan and Mumal, Jodhpur

while doing my shot trip around Rajasthan i have decided i will be only staying in small family run guest houses and homestays and most certainly Surya Kunj was a good option. I was talked highly about this place during my stay in Udaipur by the owner of another homestay Chandra Niwas. I believed in him because of the high trip advisor rating for Susrya Kunj and also because of the wonderful work they have been doing with the village rural education (daanfoundation.org)
When i landed in Jodhpur and when finally i entered Surya Kunj it was like i am home.
so relaxing and such a peaceful atmosphere with no tension and no stress and no shouts from everywhere.
the room was smelling so good and comfortable beds but to be very honest what i like the most is the fact i was staying in not a hotel or a guest house but a homestay.
I am sure i have to come back again to all this beautiful places with beautiful people of heart at least one more time and spend more time.

A home away from home!!! One of the best places I have ever stayed, Mr Sajjan Singh is really a very nice person always ready to help in every possible way. I am really impressed with the love and affection shown by Sajjan Singh ji as if we were his family members. Although I only stayed for a night but I must say next time it would be a long stay with at least one day entirely dedicated to Mr. Sajjan Singh and his interesting talks and his knowledge about the history.
Miss you Saiber :)

We stayed at Suryakunj which is the residence of the owner Mr.Sajjan Singh. Surya Kunj is very nice and homely place and the hosts are very nice people. They have deep knowledge of things and were very helpful in guiding us to go to right places. We were very impressed with Mr.Sajjan Singh's pet dog Sabre which my children adored and we had a memorable trip to Jodhapur, thanks to Mr.Sajjan Singh and his family.

That is what how i felt arriving at Surya Kunj.
After few days in the big cities it felt good to arrive in a Welcoming.. Comforting.. Relaxing..Place!
A spacious and clean house, is always nice.
We were a few of us (12 persons) but it didn't really show in the house. So very comfortable.

With all the help from Sajjan, we visited the most of Jodhpur.
It is sure that i will recommend your place for my friends that travels a lot.
Hope to see you next time!

My family and I (12 of us!) visited Jodhpur last December and stayed for few days at Surya Kunj.
The Singh family was not only welcoming, they offered rooms with large private bathrooms and extra blankets for the cold winter. Sajjan really makes the stay pleasant, always ready to offer help and interesting historical facts about the city and India. That said, all that while being respectful of our privacy.
I recommend Surya Kunj Home Stay for anyone wanting a peasible and cozy stay while in Jodhpur.

I believe lot of great things has been written by all the reviewers before. And believe me Sajjan Singh and surya kunj lives up to the great appreciation i have read here. May be there are more things to mention,

Sajjan Singh is a great person, owning a great homestay and making every guests time memorable . You would like to visit the place again . If someone has not seen the true homestay experience you should visit this place. You will start appreciating the place, the person and his great collection of books, his stories etc ..

The homestay is located in a nice place, rooms are big and comfortable.

Our stay here was a memorable one. He helped us with planning trip to Jaisalmer and accomodated our changed stay plans in his place.

I wish him all the success and happiness in life.
