does anyone happen to have a way to contact the haveli guest house in jodhpur? we are going there in october and would like to try and prebook the accommodation since they are a popular place to stay and there is a festival on at around the time we arrive.

how did other people book with them? or was in simply a case of just turning up?

Many thanks!!

Love that place

Love this hotel, have stayed there a couple of times. Ajit on the front desk is a sweatheart and really helpful. Mitu, the manager is great too. The BEST views from the rooftop restaurant, wonderful to watch the sun go down and the old guy with the moustache is a character (forgot his name briefly). Try the halwa, a sweet dish on the menu. Only a 5 min walk into Sadar Bazaar too. What more can I say? Oh yes, the rooms are fine too.

It has good recommendation but please be aware with their suggestion to stay in hotel in Jaisalmer. It is because that most of hotels in Jodhpur has their association or they took some hotels on lease in Jaisalmer with different name.

As most of traveller after Jodhpur go to Jaisalmer. In German a good poverb "Vertrauen ist gut aber controlle ist besser"

Well, personally I avoided Haveli Guest House, given that I asked the rickshaw driver to take me to Yogi's and then he took me to HGH instead, which screams to me "COMMISSIONN!!". I'm sure HGH is nice enough, but at 7am after a long overnight train, when a rickshaw doesn't take you where you want to go, then it tends to get your back up.

Anyway, I loved Yogis, and also loved their recommendation for Jaisalmer which was Shahi Palace (outside the fort walls).

Still no report but guest/tourist must free to choose their hotel. I am not prejuidice with any body. My question is also why Lonely Planet make a big research on hotels and why people write to them? Not only Lonely Planet but also another guide books are doing research. I really respect LP and request every tourist first check report of LP and then if you like another hotels, do your own small research.

At least for a traveller it is a good idea.

It is really interesting to note now because they will not recommend anymore Shahi Palace

The Yogi's are doing you no favour, because the Shahi Palace was perhaps our favourite resting place in all of India. Not so much because of the building -- though certainly the view of the fort was so spectacular that we were instantly glad that we had decided to stay outside and look AT the fort rather than stay inside and not have that view -- but because of the friendly staff and that GREAT camel safari which Setan takes you on (he is a native of Barna Village, and he drives you out there to pick up your camels; Shahi Palace is the only place that goes into the dunes out of Barna, and the feeling of isolation (you won't see another tourist) is one of the best features of the trek -- a bit like being on the Moon!

We also liked the Haveli Guest House in Jodhpur -- a fantastic view both from our room and from the rooftop. But make sure you get taken to the right one, as apparently the name has been stolen by a couple of imitators. We got a photograph first, so we'd know we were at the right place, and we paid our rickshaw driver only after we had compared the photo with the real thing.

Hey!! Just want to check if the Haveli Guest House everyone is talking about is the same as the one at this link
http://haveliguesthouse.com/index.htm
Just checking coz I read somewhere on this forum that now there are more places with the same name, so I don't want to book the wrong one!
Also, can someone suggest how we could contact Yogi's guest house in the event that we dont get a reservation at Haveli Guest House? I haven't been able to find any website / email id for yogi's!
We'll be staying for a night in Jodhpur in December! Thanks in advance for your help.
