“Exceptional in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The attention to detail and quality put into this family run hotel cannot be overstated. The reason I’m writing is that I have something that shows just how far that care and attention to detail can go. My wife forgot a pair of ear rings in the room when we checked out. The owner knew which hotel we were booked at in Jaisalmer so he found someone going that way and had them delivered to that hotel. Unfortunately we had checked out early. A few days later we dropped in to visit the owner and eat at the excellent roof top restaurant. He asked if we had received the ear rings. When he heard we hadn’t he immediately phoned around until he found someone coming to Jodhpur from Jaisalmer. They arrived with my wife’s earrings the next day and he refused any payment, saying it had been no cost to him. You will receive the same quality of care in every aspect of your stay here. Thank you Juggy and your staff for making us feel so welcome. We loved our stay and the excellent food.
P.S. My wife says this was the cleanest hotel in India.

We stayed in Govind's penthouse for a night.Very nice experience.

Jaggi is a bundle of energy belying his age.Our train reached Jodhpur well past 11 pm and his man was there to take us to the hotel in Jaggi's personal car (for a small charge).He had arranged a car on a specific request from us (because of excess baggage) while normally they guide the guests by walk from the Rail Station.At that midnight hour, he kept the restaurant open for us and a few other guests who also came by the same train personally supervising the dinner orders.

The penthouse was quaint and we enjoyed staying there.Younger people might have enjoyed
more.We,older people wished such rooms were available at lower floors.But Jaggi,the gentleman that he is, had warned us earlier about the climb to the penthouse and we really forgot about the additional effort once we were up there in his roof top restaurant and the penthouse.

The next morning he arranged a vehicle for us for Jodhpur city tour and then onto Udaipur and pushed us to leaving early so that we can cover Ranakpur also on the way.He said that we will be thankful for the push after seeing Ranakpur.We are indeed thankful to him.We just made it to the wonderful Jain Temples of Ranakpur before they closed at 5 pm.Not only that,Jaggi,we seem have had a providential escape from robbers who struck at some bus passengers late that very evening at Sayra near Ranakpur.Thanks for your pushing us early on that route.
Thanks and keep it up,Jaggi Sir.

Thank you Sir, for coming and staying at our budget place with your family. I was feeling a bit sorry when i saw your wife climbing the stairs, but hoped that if i had a hotel on the ground floor, i would have such wonderful people like you visiting my hotel. Thank you for such a marvelous write up. Hope you will come and stay with us once again. Thanks, jaggi

I am sitting back and taking time to write this special review.
I feel, we were really unlucky having missed the opportunity to stay in this place, due to our lack of communication.
We reached Jodhpur on 9th of Mar'13 morning 5AM, we had booked a room for 9th quite before our travel date.
But as per hotels policy check-in time is 11AM, when we realized the same a day prior we called up Mr Jaggi, the owner of the place and a true gentleman. He immediately booked a room for us in a nearby hotel which had 24 hours check-in
policy so that we can check-in the time we reach. We were at jodhpur for a day only , so we missed the pleasure of
our stay at his wonderful place. He made the payment to the hotel from the advance we paid him and we had to pay
the difference amount only. Not just that he sent a person fro his hotel to pick us up from the station so that we dont face any trouble. This doesnot end here, for our sightseeing, he sends one of his reliable person, who took us to all the places of visit and with really fare amount.Salute to you Mr Jaggi for everything you have done to make our stay at Jodhpur
so comfortable. It certainly made a difference to us, and we have carried lot of good feelings with us at the end of the journey!!

After getting freshen up we decided that first thing we would like to visit in Jodhpur is Mr Jaggi before anything else.
We met him in his hotel, just 5 mins walk from Railway station. It was wonderful experience meeting you and knowing
a person like you.

Govind hotel has a Roof-top restura, where food is at cheap and good rates. The ambience is awesome.
We decided we will spent our evening here. After our day long visit we came to this place and leisurely
spent our evening here, in the open, roof top restura, such an ambience I miss a lot here in Bangalore.

So, we can say, though we didnt get a chance to stay here, we would recommend everyone reading this,
if you are going to Jodhpur , dont miss staying here, you will be thankful to me for this suggestion.

The staffs are really helpful. Place is a budget hotel, really cheap one, approx Rs 700 for non AC , AC is slightly
more than this, but is definitely very very clean. It is well maintain Roof-top restura awesome experience- spend an
evening here, you will love it.

And above all....Cheers to Mr. Jaggi..!!! Jodhpur stay is a memorable one...all because of you :)

No words to express my feelings for the beautiful write up your'll have given us. As our good nature of helping others in dire emergency, we still continue to help others even if they are not staying with us. There are many transit guests who keep their luggage without any cost. Hope we continue the same for all our guests all the time. Thanks for the best write up, jaggi

Lovely stay
I stayed for two nights and had a great time. Be mindful that this a 600 rupes a night place not a five star hotel.

Room- Wonderful
The room was clean and the shower had excellent water pressure and was very hot. The wifi is available in common areas but not the rooms.

Roof top restaurant- lovely
The roof top restaurant offers nice meals at a reasonable price.

Service- great
The owner was very nice and he also does very resalable bookings.

It is near the train station and thus great for an early morning train (mine left at 5 am). However if you are staying longer you might consider a place more in the heart of things.

I guess you get what you pay for but..... This was the ickiest place we stayed in 16 days in India. No sheets on the bed. Just a dirty coverlet and two dirty velour blankets. Glad we did not have a black light...... They gave us clean sheets when we asked so that was redeeming but I was happy to spend only one night there.

Dear Customer, thanking you for bringing to my notice that there were no bed sheets in your room and on asking we gave you the bed sheets. It has never been till today that we give the rooms without the fresh bed sheets. Not only we change the old bed sheets but we also provide all our customers with fresh towels, toilet rolls and soap. I am very surprised to see your review. As a good customer you should have bought this to my notice, so that i could have taken some action immediately. Any way i am very sorry for this and shall see that this does not repeat. Thanks, jaggi

This hotel is simply awesome. Loved everything about it. The owners take pride in their property & are extremely polite & helpful.Mr. Jaggi & Mr. Sohel paid their personal attention to all my needs & even arranged for autos at late night. The hospitality was impeccable.i have stayed in 5 star properties like Taj & Radisson Blu but never experienced such a hospitality.
About the location-located just next to the railway station & not much far from private bus pickup. The surrounding area is very congested but being a budget hotel u won't complain about this for the meagre price u r paying. I heard that they even allow passengers to freshen up while waiting for trains so that speaks volumes about the owners.
About the rooms-i was given quite a large room which was nicely decorated & clean. The bathrooms was good & i could use hot water whenever needed. My room was away from the road so i didnt find any nuisance with the peak hour traffic.
About the food-they have a nice rooftop restaurant which gives a good view of the Mehrangarh fort. Food was always freshly prepared & was delicious though slight;y overpriced.
In a nutshell this is the best hotel in Jodhpur undoubtedly & one of the best i have stayed in. Thanks Mr. Jaggi & Mr. Sohel for making my stay plesant. Would surely come again very soon.

Clean, organized budget hotel with kind staff that you feel you can trust. Always ready to help you! Jaggi and his son that run the hotel have perfect english and are there with patience to answer all the questions one might have! there is a variety of rooms to cover diferent needs and costs.The food at the rooftop restaurant was very good and the view to the fort is great! Very well placed in case you are travelling around since it is just across the road from the Jodhpur train station.
