Great Indian experience. The ambience and décor of the entire haveli was so soothing and enjoyable. Food was the BEST in Jodhpur. Phil, managing partner, is a wealth of knowledge on what to do and where to buy what. It's in the old city and off the beaten path so be sure you get his number and he can meet you accordingly. Please understand that this is not a hotel. It's more like a B and B with true Indian flare. And the garden is such a delightful treat! View of the fort is spectacular as well. No Air conditioning but fans and a desert chiller are available. Like others, I was quite surprised to read such a negative review. It's India! Cows, motorbikes and rickshaws are a given. Thanks Phil for a great trip!
