“Great place to stay in Jodphur”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Beautiful haveli with stained glass and steep staircases to the rooms on the higher levels. It was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with a good bathroom and hot water. The owners were very friendly and helpful - they sent a driver to meet us and drive us to the guest house which was a huge bonus as the haveli was located in the warren of the old city. Easy walk to to markets and the clock tower area. The rooftop restaurant had an amazing view of the surrounding blue buildings and the fort at the top of the cliff. You couldn't get a better view and it was wonderful to sit up there in the evening and watch the moon, the stars and the lights on the fort.

This guest house in an old Haveli is a wonderful place to stay in Jodphur once you find it. Your tuk tuk driver will take to to his mates place first and tell you that it doesnt exist. We stayed in a Shahi suite which was huge with windows both sides with a clean bathroom. We went there in January and be warned it gets really cold at night and we had to ask for extra blankets which the owners were happy to provide. The best thing about it is the roof terrace with a wonderful view of the fort and a welcome calm space away from the madness of Jodphur. The only thing and totally not their fault is the ranting and raving coming from the local mosque which went on, would you believe, till five o clock in the morning. We only stayed two nights ( easy to book from home on their website ) but were glad to get out of the place. Take the train for your onward journey ( 2nd class, aircon two tire lower berth ) six hour to Jaipur, rather than wasting a day traveling back to Delhi. Well worth a short visit to see the wonderful old fort.

Room Tip: try to get the Shahi king suite

Dear Sir/Madam
Thanks for your time to write review for us.I am apologize for here you could not sleep well but this is not our fault. At that time there was a festival of Muslim (BARAHWAFAT) that's why in the mosque they celebrate full of night and it happens once a year and we cant stop that.The sound was coming from the clock tower area because near our guest house there is not any mosque but i am happy to hear that the rest things you like here.

Excellent Brahmin vegetarian rooftop restaurant plus incredible views of old city and fort. The owner family of this ancient haveli and staff were courteous and helpful, accommodating our needs and questions. Stone stairs to upper level rooms are narrow and spiral

booked through hostelbookers and were looking forward it! unfortunately our room was given away as we arrived at 7pm, instead of before 5. Shahi staff "took care of us" by sending us to a terrible hotel. very disappointing experience for weary travelers

The food we had here was amazing. They have a roof top restaurant with great views of the fort both at night and in the day. The rooms were ok. We were in the heart of the old town which was fun although I wouldnt want to get lost in there at night.

This is highly recommended if you're after the personal touch and something full of character. Nestled right below the towering fort, the rooftop restaurant offers amazing views and food. Bantu and his wife go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. We were here for Christmas and they were only to keen to help make it as happy for us even offering to make some special cakes or anything else we would have liked. The Haveli is colourful and charming and the location is great for meandering around the alleys of the Old City or walking to the market. Excellent value!

I booked this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and hoped it lived up to them. It didn't disappoint at all. Clean and comfortable room with excellent view of the fort. Hot showers. Lovely restaurant to have breakfast. They made me the best porridge.
The hotel manager was helpful in suggesting a good restaurant and getting our bearings of the town. I would stay here again, and again.

Room Tip: We were given a room on the 1st floor facing the street. There wasn't a problem with noise. The...
