Jodhpur Hotels

Dive into Jodhpur’s winding old city maze of blue cubist buildings, tangled medieval streets and bustling bazaars and you’ll find yourself lost among a whirlwind of sights and smells. From stores of sumptuous silk saris in greens, blues and pinks to tables heaped with pots of red, yellow and orange spices, Jodhpur really is a world of colour. India’s blue city might have cooling blue-washed buildings, but its temperament is much more bright and shiny, just like its hot desert sun.

Things to see

You really can’t miss Jodhpur’s colossal Meherangarh Fort from its lofty position atop a rocky outcrop, where it stands steadily surveying the blue city below. For sheer size and supremacy, it can’t be outdone, as its huge castle-like ramparts protrude from the rock – a vast mass of stone and masonry. Don’t skip the audio tour – it’s 2 hours, but really does open up your eyes to this masterpiece of a building. Jodhpur’s other dominant architectural gem is the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Tucked to the south of the city, this 1929 mega complex is a grand over-the-top show of sandstone arches, intricate carvings and art deco interiors that was built by the Maharajah to keep thousands of his subjects from famine through employment in building. After the architecture, head deep into the old city to Sardar Market – it’s the best place for cheap-as-you-like truly Indian purchases – life-size statue of Ganesh anyone?

Hotels in Jodhpur

Jodhpur excels at the art of authentic Rajasthani hospitality. Check in to a charming olde-worlde guesthouse – full of period furniture, Indian handicrafts and colourful silk textiles – to really get to grips with the tru Jodhpur. Leave time in your day for a long chat with your hotel’s owners over a steaming cup of sweet-as-you-like chai. Jodhpur’s hotels range from back to basics guesthouses – with simple no-fan rooms with shared baths – to upmarket large hotels, offering traditional service and stylish interiors. Mid-range modern style hotels are available, though these tend to be in the newer areas of the city.

Where to stay

Jodhpur’s old city is really where most tourist appeal lies. Hordes of guesthouses vie for your attention around Sardar Market, perfect if you fancy being right in the thick of it. For something more sedate, head west in the old city to areas like Navchokiya, where you can find plenty of ancient atmosphere with much less hustle and bustle. Head south of the city to Jodhpur’s newer districts if you want somewhere much less crowded, with wider streets and more modern buildings, where clusters of hotels scatter the districts between the old city and the airport, often in residential areas.

How to get to Jodhpur

Most visitors to Jodhpur arrive via train or bus, though flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur and Udaipur do land at Jodhpur Airport, just 3 miles from the city centre. Jodhpur is well served by the rail network, with plenty of direct trains arriving from most of India’s major cities, including Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore. Express routes also run between Jodhpur and Delhi, as well as Jaisalmer and Jaipur. Private bus companies operate in the city, offering tourist shuttles to and from Rajasthani cities, and there are also local buses. Taxis and auto-rickshaws are inexpensive ways to get around.
