For a person who loves ancient structures I was quite excited about it. It's a beautiful property with authenticity of true haveli being carried in the new construction. The inner facade though lacking in finesse is charming in its 'rawness'. The terrace is its star feature with beautiful 360 degree views. However, I'm not happy with the room. First of all there is just one suit and therefore is always booked. All other rooms fall way short when compared to a suit. The room we got was on 4th floor (again, there's no lift, but that was okay for us, I don't mind a bit of exercise). But what I do mind is that it was right under the noisy kitchen which kept our room constantly smelling of food! The rooms have traditional design but poorly lit and not exactly comfortable. Bathroom is dark and narrow with no place to keep toiletries and stuff, no place to hang towels and just too small to be called comfortable. These little 'discomforts' can be really annoying when you are on a long trip! There is no safe for your valuables which is a big miss for a 'boutique' hotel. The car parking is further away from the hotel and not covered. We chose this for its proximity to city palace & few other landmarks (also for its history) and thats a big plus here. We had dinner on both nights of stay on terrace - not for food as such, but for the views! Food, although good could be improved as well as service & their hotel website. I feel like I'm sounding all negative but that's the plain truth of my experience. It badly needs a feminine touch. Since its new, with all this feedback they can definitely make it a success. In short, it has lots in the name of charm but less in the name of comfort! You can read & see more (as if this wasn't enough!) pictures of our experience at pastlifeseamstress.com
