The city of JODHPUR is known as the "Sun City" for the bright, sunny weather it enjoys all year roud. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. The old city circles the fort and is bound by a citywall with several gates. However, the city has expanded greatly outside the citywall over the past several decades. Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists.
Guests have access to their room, common areas like the drawing and dining room, verandah and garden, as well as access to the large terrace.

Karni is a great host. Everything is so perfect. Strongly recommend his place.
Positives - the house is well located, Karni Singh was kind to give directions and the staff is very co-operative to make breakfast.
Negatives (items for improvement) :-
- room did not have any wardrobe/ cupboards to keep clothes
- the bead was creaky and mattress quality poor
- the bathroom geyser thermostat kept on cutting off and didnot get adequate hot water
- bathroom didnot have separate shower cubicle, hence the whole bathroom floor was wet and difficult to change clothes
The Riddhi Siddhi Bhawan is a comfortable home stay in Jodhpur. It is a wonderful location right next to the city palace. The hosts are friendly and the guest house is extremely clean and convenient to stay at.
Riddhi y su familia fueron muy agradables y compartimos ratos de conversación muy interesantes. La casa está muy bien ubicada, la habitación inmejorable, y los servicios que nos ofrecieron, genial es. Muy recomendable.
Karni and his family were great hosts throughout my stay in Jodhpur. I arrived feeling very sick after picking up a bug in Mumbai, was greeted by the most comfortable bed/bedroom during all my travels in india and left feeling strong enough to carry on my trip, because of their attentiveness.
Many thanks to the Singh's
We had a lovely stay with Karni and his wife. They have a nice comfortable home in a central location in Jodhpur. We enjoyed an evening with them and they cooked us a delicious dinner. We couldn't have asked for more. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for everything :)
During our recent visit to Jodhpur, my mom and I stayed with Karni and Darshini for two nights. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend their home.
Riddhi Siddhi Bavan (RSB) is located slightly away from all the typical touristy hotels and guest houses in Jodhpur (there is a Karni Bhawan Hotel right next to RSB so that might get a little confusing for some people). We hired a local auto rickshaw wala from right outside RSB to take us around town for Rs.500 for the entire day. The palace, fort, clock tower etc are all about 15/20 minutes ride from RSB which was perfect.
Darshini is a super star and we absolutely loved chatting with her about pretty much everything under the sun! She made some amazing breakfast for us both mornings - Idli Sambar on day 1 and parathas (Indian bread) and sabji (veggies) on day 2. It was as if we were staying with friends.
The room (and common areas), bathroom and sheets were clean and spacious. Overall we had a relaxed stay and highly recommend RSB.
