First the cons: The hotel is in the bustling heart of the town so is noisy and being a Haveli with a rooftop restaurant and no lifts is not suitable for children.
Now the cons: Its in the bustling heart of the town so you really get a great taste of the real india. The rooftop restaurant is a superb setting and the member of the family who prepared the meals is a superb cook. But do let her know your needs in advance so she can source them fresh from the market. The rooms were clean and very pleasant. The pick up at the airport was excellent , its arranged free but costs about £3. The owner and family could not be more pleasant or helpful. We needed a good driver and car to go with us to Jaisalmeer and stay with us for several days and we could not have been more satisfied with the driver and vehicle. Similarly with the trip he arranged to nearby villages (but dont forget if you are tall to ask for a jeep with good headroom). A great experience and one we will not forget.
The Taj is a very well priced Western style hotel within the city of Jodhpur. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. They have a beautiful pool along with an attentive group of staff members who provide cold towels and frozen fruit kababs. The spa services are basic but effective.
The Front Desk Staff was exceptional, check-in easy and every inquiry of ours was thoroughly answered. Rooms were very quiet. Beds comfortable and bathrooms very clean. The hotel food was a little boring but clean and fresh. Restaurant wait staff was good, but not great. The bar staff whether serving inside or outside on lawns was super slow--like they had amnesia.
The hotel is not near the historic part of town, it is on the outskirts. The plus side of that is the cleanliness and quiet. The downside of that is the transportation required. However front desk did a great job of arranging transport.

My girlfriend and I stayed with chotoram and his family at their home stay for three nights and we enjoyed every moment. During our stay chotoram and his family couldn't have been more welcoming, it is definitely a place to stay if you would like a real insight into a traditional indian family and their home life. Whilst there we enjoyed having every meal cooked for us (which were delicious!) a village trek at sunset and visit to the local temple, a city sight seeing tour and village safari of salawas and the surrounding area. We were also given the opportunity to make chapati with chotorams lovely wife, dressed in full length sari which you also have a chance to dress up in. In our 2 months travel in India it has been our favourite place and experience, can't recommend it enough.
Hotel is nice and well maintained. Overall very clean. Restaurant is ousourced and not up to same standard. Breakfast chioce very limited.
I would not recommend this hotel for travellers, since it is far outside the city in a military area hardly known by locals. It requires a taxi to go there, which is also difficult to find in Jodphur when arriving first time (only tuk tuk available).
Location might be ok, if for business reasons.
The garden is amazing. You wake up to the sound of peacocks and birds. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have a very special feel.. they used to be horse stables!! It does not get more boutique than that!
it is located outside of the madness of the city (I don't recommend staying in town as it is too crazy and polluted), main restaurant is average, however avoid ordering food at the bar, it is revolting! room was average, bathroom was just OK (could be cleaner). good entertainment at night, beautiful pool.
Overal OK establishment, worth no more than 150$ a night.
