“Shivam Paying Guest House”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Shivam Paying Guest House in Jodhpur, India is good value for the money. I arrived in Jodhpur after an overnight train from Delhi and was tired after my journey. I had requested a pickup at the rail station and was pleasantly surprised when the driver met me as promised.

The guest house is a three story structure close to Mehrangarh Fort and to the town's central market - or at least one of them. The rooms are on the second and third floor with the restaurant on the upper level as is common in India. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bed and private bath. As I was early I was given a choice of three rooms which was appreciated. The food is excellent and fairly priced. I would recommend Shivam Paying Guest House to anyone.

Room Tip: I had a room on the third floor directly beneath the kitchen which was a bit loud at night but not a...

Awesome location and excellent value for money. No compromise on cleaniness and comfort make it one of the best places to stay in Jodhpur. Roof Top restaurant and the view of Mehrangarh fort from the restaurant is great. Service staff and management are very friendly and help you with whatever you need. Would surely recommend Shivam and their new property Ganpati to any one looking for VFM stay in Jodhpur .

Room Tip: Do visit the Roof Top ...

We arrived at 5:30 in the morning which, despite being ridiculously early, was fine for this guest house which let us use a room (which they made an effort to clean for us) to get some rest while our room was being checked-out by the previous occupants and cleaned. They did this even though they were unaware of our exact time of arrival. Note that it did take a little waking up of the staff from the autorickshaw driver (and some other passer-by who seemed to know the owner) so if you're planning on arriving at the same time, make sure they know in advance.
Check-in later that morning was given with a useful idea of how to visit all the sights in Jodhpur including the lovely Mandore Gardens.
The rooftop restaurant was pleasant, with great sunset views of the fort and food at reasonable prices.
The location is great, only a 2minute walk to the clock tower.
The free wi-fi in the rooftop restaurant /cafe is an added bonus and if you're in the rooms higher up, it's accessible (albeit a bit slow) in them too.
The room we stayed in to rest before our room was available was cheaper (around Rs.300) and not that clean but our actual room (Rs.450) was clean, very pretty and the bathroom had lots of hot water although the toilet water connection dripped constantly.

Overall, we had a comfortable stay in this friendly guest house and would recommend it.

Room Tip: Room numbers 1-3 are the top floor rooms and we think they're the nicest.

We stayed for three nights in a triple room. The first room had a dirty bathroom so please remember to check beforehand!

The room was very reasonable (400 rupees for 3 people) and the family were helpful. Free wi fi was much appreciated. The view from the restaurant was great!

We booked a Bishnoi village tour with the hotel and enjoyed it too, 500 rupees per person.

We spent a night at Shivam Paying Guest House in Jodhpur on the Old Fort Road whilst we were travelling in Rajasthan and we would definitely recommend it. When we arrived at 5am in the morning there was only a small room available and we were told by the owner that we could move into one of the bigger better rooms later in the morning when other guests had checked out – they had no problems with us checking in so early. As we were only staying for one night we decided not to move as our room was more than adequate. However we did see the other rooms and they were very spacious and full of light with nice bathrooms. There is also hot water in the mornings and in the evenings which is always nice. At the top of the hotel they have a nice restaurant with lovely views all around Jodhpur. The staff were also very friendly and very helpful. There was also a luggage room as check out is at 10am, that can be used if you have a late train and don’t want to carry your bags around all day. Finally the owner said that he will soon have internet available which he is setting up through his neighbour that runs an internet cafe just next door – he could do it himself but he didn’t want to put his neighbour out of pocket - the owner was a lovely man who likes to chat to people. All this for 300 rupees (double room) – BARGAIN!!!

This guesthouse has a good location in the center of Jodhpur. The room was big, with comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. The room was clean and already available early in the morning. People were friendly. Price was very budget. The guesthouse has a nice rooftop terras with a good view over jodhpur and the fort. The breakfast for only 130 Rs was super! Toasts,+ eggs +bananapancake + coffee/tea + fresh orange juice! Delicious!
