“Good stay in a nice, historical building!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

The Paawana Haveli sits on the main road in Mandawa, a small town in Rajasthan. It had nice paintings in- & out side. The staff wad very nice, friendly, and helpful. It wad very quiet during the night. Breakfast and lunch/dinner were good. From the rooftop terrace you have a good view over the main street. The bathroom was very modern and clean. Everything else was also clean. WiFi only works in the reception area, not in the rooms.

Such a cute haveli in this small town. The rooms are big with quite interesting paintings on the walls.The rooms are air conditioned except the power sometimes cuts out, but that's India!
My only problem with the room was that I know the sheets were washed/cleaned but they had stains on it that they obviously could not get out, which is a bit off putting.But aside from that the room is clean.
There is a beautiful rooftop restaurant, that we had our breakfast at. It was lovely just to drink our coffee watching the street starting to wake up and get busy down below.
Great stay in a Haveli full of character , and the staff were so friendly and really all they wanted to do was help (even though their English was not very good), there were lots of smiles .

Room Tip: we had deluxe room with aircon on the ground floor

Stayed in the hotel during Holi celebration in Mandawa, liked it a lot: great location, clean rooms, lots of character. Rooftop provides good view of the village and place to have meal or sip beer witnessing how village wakes up in the morning or quiets down in the evening.

We really enjoyed our stay at this haveli. The bed was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was big and the shower was hot and the staff were great and helped us out with every request. We also took up the option to do a guided tour was a young man at this accommodation and enjoyed our hassle free walk and received lots of information on both the town and the beautiful artwork. We would not hesitate to recommend both the accommodation and the guided walk.

Paawana Palace is a quite scenic place. The hindutemple is next door, the minarets are not far, so you can listen to the different religous sounds during the day. The hotel looks nice, the rooms are basic and ok. If you choose painted walls, you'll have no window. The Restaurant is nice and serves good meals, but it's not really clean.

great deal for the price ($25) Real historical haveli, still owned by the family which runs the hotel. The room was pretty nice, although didn't spend much time there. Very interesting to walk around the hotel and see the old decorations and architecture.

Very pleasant rooftop restaurant to sit and relax and look over the town. I didn't eat there, so can't comment on the food.

Service was good, a relative of the owner is the manager and he was very helpful although his english wasn't that great.

The downside was the wifi. as expected it didn't work in the room, but even in the lobby, it worked once in a while and only after i asked them to reboot it a few times...sometimes even then it wouldn't come on.

My friend and I stayed one night on the 20th January and we were both very happy with the Paawana Haveli and the word great comes to mind Bathroom, Toilet, Water, Bed, Mattress and yummy Sheets and Doona. Nothing was to much trouble, and as it was cold we were supplied with what ever we requested with a smile, the little tour of the town fantastic so thankyou to all. I have no problem in recommending the Haveli and wish them all the best for the future.
