We were a family of four. The size of the rooms is good enough to accommodate all. Big washrooms. Location of the hotel is very good, very near to Umaid bhawan palace. Though the food was expensive, but was really good. Overall, the experience was very good and will recommend the hotel to my friend.

This review is about Hotel Ranbanka that is located very conveniently so near to the Mehrangarh Fort as well as Umaid Bhawan. It is partially hidden behind another adjacent building and hence one does not get an idea of the internal spaciousness from outside. In appearance, we are talking about the interior of course, it is majestic with Indo-saracenic architecture - the architecture that you would call Rajasthani-Mughal. Of course, it were the British who perfected that architecture but the majesty is increased by the fact that this style has all but disappeared from our country today.

The decor of the hotel is exquisite and it is very spacious both in it's layout as well as the rooms and corridors. Garden lay out too is pleasant and soothing the swimming pool in band adjacent to the lawn in a corner of the compound. Hotel houses a Kashmiri artefacts shop as well as a Rajasthani miniature studio.

The hotel management is modern, professional and pleasant. The bathroom ambiance and expanse has to be seen to believe.

I do have a few complains. Cupboards and drawers were jammed and I had to use force to open these. Washbasin is so distant that from you that you are sure to get back pain. To flip channels on the television set you are given two remote controls and you have to figure out the order and the commands. I used the shortcut - asked the reception to send the technician.

A part of the serving staff dons the traditional Rajasthani dress. This group, I discovered as a pleasant surprise, is also qualified one but unless the hotel figures out how to make it apparent the guests are likely to assume the worse - these are locals who do not know English.

In my CPI scheme I only had a breakfast and in that department Ranbanka has to do a lot of catching up.

Jodhpur hosts the Rajasthan High Court and this makes it the legal matters capital of that state and this is a fact that can not be ignored even in the settings where tourism is uppermost in one's mind. Legal dynamics, whether we like it or not, is a dismal facet of any society. In view of this it devolves upon Rajasthan government to salvage the tourism aspect - an aspect which is completely opposite to the legal face when it comes to joys of life.

Having said that Jodhpur is an excellent tourist spot because of it's historical significance as the centre of Marwar and the Rathore clan. The attractions include the Mehrangarh Fort, the city divided into old and new as well as the so recent Umaid Palace. The timeless glory of old Rajput culture can only be appreciate when you enter into that environment.

With Jaipur, Udaipur and Jaisalmer it makes a nice quarter of Rajputana grandeur and that puts Jodhpur in the league of first class destinations not only in Rajasthan but even in India and I am saying it with no hesitation that it is a world tourist destination. I do not mind when a western thinks of Maharajas while thinking of India - Maharajas were a reality of Indian life and their descendants are still around with us today. Some of them have turned their old properties into tourist lodges and that is for good.

Overall, I found the hotel and the hospitality of hotel was excellent. The quality of food was good. The room and service of room was excellent, comfortable, in our next trip to Jodhpur with family also, in business meetings I would prefer this hotel only.

The staff in front line at reception, at restaurant was good. Their behaviour was so nice. My wife was comparing our experience with other hotel, this hotel we found better. Although, our past experience with other hotels was not bad but here we found much better.

As the name suggests, the hotel has a palatial look and the grandness of its activity area, place by the pool or the verandah garden in between are mindblowing.

Lovely Rajasthani food, very delectably prepared and the hospitality worth all the money spent.

The rooms in the other wing are good but can be more tastefully maintained especially since they are the highest in numbers.

We had a really nice stay at the Ranbanka Heritage hotel in Jodhpur. The location of the hotel is great and it's a beautiful heritage property. The staff were polite and helpful. We celebrated our friend's birthday there and the staff really helped us make it special. It's definitely one of the best properties in jodhpur to stay at.

Took my swiss friend with her family on a holiday across Rajasthan, to show them a piece of incredible india. Started off very well with our stay in shahpura house Jaipur, and then arrived in ranbanka palace, to give them a feel of being in a palace.This is the most run down property - I would perhaps not even offer to my stable boys. The receptionist was an oily faced unenthusiastic person - like from an itdc hotel.The bellboy was worse - no signs of welcome, nothing.Was already depressive. We booked 2 dbls and 1 sgl, were offered 102, 104 and I think 105 (sgl). 102 - the AC didn't work. After a longish road journey from jaipur to Jodhpur, we were all looking forward to using the bath and to freshen up etc. Bathrooms were simply pathetic - extremely shoddy cement works.Worse was the general toilet near the reception - np towels/ toilet paper, is perhaps meant only for the staff. My friends were shifted to room 120 - but was just as bad. There is no useable plug point for the hot water kettle - in all the rooms we were given. Restaurant was also pathetic - with staff uniforms so very dirty. To see grimy dressed staff at breakfast is most unpalatable.We asked for an apple, but were told that they didn't have an apple unbelievable. I will advise every single person I come across, to never spoil their holiday by trying ranbanka palace. Oh yes, the rooms had absolutely no grandeur in terms of interiors.Was like a white hospital room. Absolutely plain and unimaginative. To top it all, they even charge for wifi. Through our holidays in rajastahn, ranbanka palace was the most expensive rates we'd paid. And for the money paid, to was pitiful to say the least. Never ever again, avoidable completely. If i could rate it in negative points, I wouldn't know how far I could go.. Worst.

We stayed in Ranbanka on 1st to 3rd January 2016. We stayed in the one of the palace rooms. We had a excellent stay. Rooms and food are excellent. Clean and comfortable rooms. Reasonably priced and nice and clean location.
Small suggestions - the music in the evening is not really too good. Maybe they need to get better local singers if they are available. At present the show does not present a good quality. Welcome with some traditional Rajasthani drums etc. welcome would be better. Towels and liquid soaps have scope of being of better quality in the other very clean washroom.The hotel has potential to be of being a better quality and offering to move a true 5 star experience if the management can invest somewhat more on training of the team - they are good but not of Taj or Oberoi Class.We will visit again.

Maintenance of the property is very poor. Bedding and Linen was dirty, but the location of the hotel is very good. Behavior of the staff was good and food was also good. The staff is courteous, but the maintenance of the property seems to be a big issue. They should seriously think about this as there is no wi-fi available. Menu is good and the food too.
