Staying in Surya Kunj was so pleasant and relaxing. Mr Singh was very accommodating and was very helpful. He even drove us to the bus station at 6 am. He was very fun to talk with and provided us with plenty of gossips on India. The room was superb, spacious and clean. There is even a terrace upstairs. Highly recommended.

I arrived in Jodhpur at 9pm after 7 hrs travelling in a bus without AC, tired and feeling dirty, so what a good surprise I had when I saw the Kothi Heritage! It really cheered me up! I was charmed by the beautiful architecture and the decoration of the house, and I was very well welcomed by the owner of the hotel.
The staff was extremely friendly, the only problem being that the waiters are not all proficient in English, so sometimes they were staring at me because they obviously did not understand what I was saying...!
Overall I had an excellent time at the hotel and I can only warmly recommend it!

"Great base for seeing Jodphur and surrounding area"
Good location close to the sights of Jodhpur but away from the bustle of the centre of town. Lovely garden and roof terrace with the option of dining on the roof at night with beautiful views of the floodlit fort and the stars.
Cannot say too much about the warm warm welcome we received from the haveli owners and their great staff. Delicious food and nothing too much trouble. Also a great source of reliable information about where to buy local textiles without worrying about price and authenticity.
One or two minor points to attend to in our room but it was very large with armchairs, a fridge, coffee table and a great window seat and pleasant Rajastan style decor.
The owners can arrange trips out of Jodhpur too (we didn't have time to do this but plan to next time) and prices are very reasonable compared to other larger hotels we stayed in on our tour.
We have already recommended this haveli to a family member.

This was truly a great place to stay, and I really wish we had been able to stay for more than one night! Vippin was a gracious and thorough host, and his family is equally amazing! They made us feel welcome from our very first minute, and took care of us all the way until we left the next morning. Once we settled in, they arranged some excellent Tuk-tuk drivers to take us up to the fort so we could see that before the sun went down. Then, we had an excellent dinner on their rooftop dining area, with the food prepared by his wife and sister in law. They also helped us arrange some train travel for later in our week, and made sure we had a very nice and inexpensive taxi drive down to Udaipur the next day. These people care about their guests, and they treat you just like family every step of the way. The beds were comfortable, but a little wobbly. That is really just a nit-pick. Everyone in our group had a great night's sleep, and we all agreed that this was the best place we stayed at our entire trip (even better than the 4 star hotel in Kerala)!
A little advice. They are located in "Old City" and regular taxis won't go there. You'll need to hire Tuk-tuk's and I would highly recommend you contact Hem Guest House ahead of time. They told me that they would have made arrangements to have someone meet us, and it would have cost less than hiring a ride separately. They truly will go the extra mile, so please reach out to them ahead of your arrival, you'll be glad you did!

We booked this place for one day only but ended up staying for six days. Because the surrounding, ambiances and food was so great that, we decided not to check any other place. We enjoyed sleeping on a jute bed (khatla) under the open sky and watching the stars, listening to the birds in the morning and absolutely fresh Air.

"Best view of the fort at night from the roof top."
I was a little hesitant to stay at a guest house vs a hotel but Maneesh and his dad made our stay so enjoyable that we returned there when we had a one day layover. If you are going to stay at the Blue house and are looking at doing some sight seeing let Maneesh know how much time you have and what you want to do. He has been doing this all of his life and will know exactly how to arrange your times and schedule to make the most of your stay. Maneesh and his dad did an excellent job of taking care of us and making the most of our time in Jodhpur.
