We recently stayed two nights at this wonderful, old, character filled hotel in Jodhpur. The hotel is owned by the Maharaj who we met for drinks and a delightful old man he is. The hotel is set back off the road in a quiet, secluded setting. Our welcome, as always in India, was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was...

What a wonderful oasis of peace, away from the hectic pace of the city! We spent three wonderful days at Ratan Vilas. A large courtyard with pristine pool create exactly the peace you want after a trip through the center and a visit to the fort. In addition, the restaurant is very recommendable. Top!

Just got back from 3 nights here and we strongly recommend a visit to Ratan Vilas. A very quiet location in Jodhpur, but only a short ride both from the airport and into the city. The hotel has good rooms, most helpful staff and a welcome pool! The food is also well up to scratch. It's very good value too....

The rooms and grounds are spectacular, and the well maintained pool is a welcome relief from the summer heat on the busy streets!
