Bradley and I visited the beautiful blue city of Jodhpur during our three weeks in India. It was truly one of my favourite places. Full of culture, delight, and blue buildings!

The view of the fort, towering over the city and lit up at night is one of the most amazing sights I’ve had on my travels.

Jodhpur is full of amazing places to stay, and we before we booked, I did a lot of research on the type of accommodation I wanted.

Since Bradley and I are a couple, we don’t tend to do the whole hostel scene. We don’t party often enough and we need privacy haha

So, I knew I wanted a nice hotel with a beautiful view of the fort, and that’s what I found.

The first property I will mention on my list of the best hotels in Jodhpur for couples is the hotel we choose, and the rest are properties I debated over. 2 of them are super famous in Jodhpur and way out of my price range, but it may be the perfect spot for you!

So keep reading to find your perfect hotel in Jodhpur for a memorable stay.

*Please note, all the hotels I have mention have links to booking. Com. The reason we use booking is because it’s the only website I’ve used for years now, you get the best choice and best price (they price match) and you get genius perks like free late check out, breakfast etc after you book 3 times.*

It won’t cost you anything more booking through a link we have provided!

Why visit Jodhpur?

When you think of travelling or visiting India, your mind automatically goes to the Taj Mahal, and perhaps Jaipur. Not many people think of the blue city, Jodhpur.

I’ll be honest and tell you I never knew much about Jodhpur before I researched my India travel itinerary. But this place is bursting with great food, friendly locals and lots to see and do.

Batman fans (Christian Bale era) will be pleased that one of the iconic scenes is filmed at the famous fort in Jodhpur. I’ll not tell you, maybe you’ll recognise and remember!

But from learning new history, seeing beautiful sights, and fantastic day tips, a trip to Jodhpur will leave you with fond memories.

The best time to visit Jodhpur

The peak tourist season in India is their winter, which is our winter in the UK too, so that’s October to January. We visited in November and the weather was pleasant, and we didn’t experience any rain.

I guess because it’s peak season, prices may be higher, but since India is such good value in general, I can’t say I noticed any difference.

How long should I stay in Jodhpur?

To get the most out of Jodhpur and its surrounding areas, I would recommend 2 to 3 nights. No less than that. I think 3 nights is more acceptable if you want to rent a moped or car and take some solo adventures.

12 best hotels in Jodhpur for couples

Okay, now for the part you came for: the best hotels in Jodhpur for couples.

These hotels are based on my research and where I stayed. Because they are chosen for couples, they all include double beds with private bathrooms, and air conditioning as standard.

1. Castle View Home Stay

This is the property that Bradley and I stayed in during our time in Jodhpur. The rooms are beautifully decorated. In a sort of Moroccan/Indian style. The bed is super comfy, I love the bathroom,the shower and cute little windows.

The WiFi is fast (important for digital nomads like us!), the staff are super friendly and amazing, the cafe is on the rooftop and it feels like you could reach out and touch the fort, you are that close.

In the evening when the fort is lit up, the view is unbelievable and it’s the perfect dinner setting. Food is reasonably priced and the food is good, not great, but good. The staff are very friendly and you get little candles at your dinner table as you dine.

It’s classed as a homestay, but it feels like a hotel and is run like a hotel.

If you get a tuk tuk (which is the only thing that will fit down the road to get to the hotel), two members of staff will come help you with your bags as the hotel is located up a steep set of stairs (hence the amazing view).

They don’t pressure you for a tip, but it’s always polite to tip!

Card is accepted at this property.

This place is great value and you can find the latest prices here.

Well, this is actually the most famous hotel in Jodhpur, and one of the most famous in India.

It’s luxury done at its best, and you are literally staying in a palace. It is unbelievable.

You get celebrity treatment from arrival to departure. Exquisite rooms, on-site bar and restaurant, a champagne museum, beautiful gardens and surroundings, this is a hotel experience like no other.

With prices start at $500 per night raising up to the thousands depending on your suite, it’s definitely a pricey selection. But read the reviews and you’ll see what you’re in for, plus a 9.7 review score on average is pretty damn amazing!

This is a beautiful 3 star heritage hotel that I think is great for couples. It’s got an authentic wholesome feel to it and it’s beautifully decorated.

There is a large outdoor pool for relaxing and cooling off from the heat of Jodhpur. There is an in-house restaurant for delicious dining and you can arrange car rental from the property.

I think it’s great value for the location and amenities offered, but you can decide for yourself here.

Card payment is accepted.

12. Radisson Jodhpur

I love a Radisson hotel, and we stayed in a fantastic Radisson with a view of the Taj Mahal for a great price. But when it comes to a stay with the Radisson, you know you’re getting luxury at a great price.

This hotel is no different. The building itself is amazing, an architectural delight. The rooms are stunning, many with beautiful bathtubs.

There is an on-site gym, spa access, a great outdoor swimming pool. You can also book airport transfers (both ways) when booking for extra convenience.

Top things to do in Jodhpur

As I have mentioned before Jodhpur is filled with amazing things to do and see. I’ve actually written a whole guys on 17 things to do in Jodhpur in 2 days (yes, 17!).

But I will highlight some of my favourites here too.

1. Mehrangarh Fort

This is the most iconic thing to do in Jodhpur, simply because it towers over the blue city and is packed with culture, beauty and history. As standard with your ticket you get an audio guide (in a variety of languages), which gives you great insight into the history of the fort.

There are also some beautiful views to be had here! And, for the more adventurous, you can zipline through the fort.

2. Umaid Palace

This is one of the most beautiful places in Jodhpur, and as you’ll have seen from above, you can stay in it (not cheap!). But, if you don’t want to stay, you can still visit the palace and its surroundings and see the museum.

3. Dine by candlelight with a view of the fort

Chances are if you choose one of the hotels above, they’ll have an on-site restaurant that will deliver on just this. It’s SO romantic.

4. Visit the lakes of Jodhpur

There are a variety of lakes to visit in Jodhpur, and it’s fun asking locals to direct you as they will love the chat and try work on their English. Indian people are very real and authentic and you never feel like you’re being ripped off or hassled.

So that’s 4 of 17, don’t forget to check out the post for more ideas on things to do in Jodhpur.

Where to visit after Jodhpur

After your visit to the amazing Jodhpur, you’ve got a few options for onward travel. You could visit Udaipur for it’s fantastic palace and amazing lakes, or you could head to the cultural capital of Pushkar for a religious blessing and countryside surroundings.

I’ve also done a guide on the best hotels in Pushkar if you need help finding accommodation there.
