I am a little saddened by the critics from Delhi and Mumbai who criticize this lovely old haveli run by a wonderfully kind family. Especially the comment that the place should be "developed" properly. Yes, then we average visitors will not have the terrific view and friendly staff. Maybe you all should stay at the Oberoi or the Palace. This was a lovely but aging haveli in a great location at a great price.
First, Mr. S had a taxi pick me up at the airport even though I told him I would probably be ok. It was wedding season and I was glad that he did get me a driver. We ran into several wedding parties at the airport. Mr S greeted me warmly and gave me the best view in the place and delivered a chai in welcome. He and his father and daughter were delightful. The staff learned to deal with a stubbornly solo woman traveller and Mr S set me up with a side trip to Ahmedabad to see Gandhi's ashram museum. I really enjoyed the trip, as long as it was, and again was greeted upon my late return with tea and warm smiles.
I loved my room, the view and my proximity to shops, lake, siteseeing, etc. At sunset I sat on the stairs or watched the ghats on the lake.
Don't change! Keep it a special place for the non wealthy, non Bollywood wedding crowd!
