The Juna Mahal is an old middle-class house converted into a small authentic hotel (I wouldn't call it home stay). Each floor level is a room with its own bathroom. Our room was nicely decorated, the bathroom was small and clean but absolutely fine.
The rooftop offers seats and tables for breakfast and dining. Ordered dinner is freshly prepared and tastes great, breakfast could have been better.
The host and owner is a bit of a braggart. The rest of the staff is good but sometimes keeps you waiting without reason.
As for the location: You can walk from the hotel to the Fort and to the clock tower.
Yes, it's in the old city and you only get there by tukuk, yes, it's just off of one the of the main streets of the old bazaar, and yes it can get noisy - but so what? That's an experience and don't you come to India for getting a experience? Besides being centrally located gives you a great view from the rooftop to the Fort and to other houses and temples around you.
