We chose this Haveli on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and prompt and helpful email correspondence with Yash, who runs the hotel with his brother Harsh. It turned out to be even better than we had hoped.
Our room (no 43) had plenty of room for the four of us - two adults and two children, 10 and 12 - and was simply, but comfortably and stylishly furnished with views over the lake. We even had our own huge roof terrace although it was generally too hot to sit out for long (no shade), and families with smaller children might not be comfortable with the low surrounding walls, the room being at the very top of the building...
The bathroom was fairly basic, but large, clean and with hot water - we were told to wait five minutes between showers, but didn't have any problems with the supply. We had aircon and a small fridge. WiFi was free, although we were unable to get a connection in our room - it was fine in reception and also in the restaurant.
Breakfast and evening meals at the rooftop restaurant were delicious and good value with huge portions, and the view was beautiful. Yash and Harsh were happy to recommend alternative places to eat (Ambrai across the bridge was good), and the Haveli is so well located in the Old City that it is easy to get around - it is less than a ten minute walk to the City Palace (unless you take a wrong turning as we did....) and virtually next door to the Bagore Haveli (don't miss the evening cultural concerts - very entertaining!)
Yash and Harsh were extremely helpful and friendly, and obviously know exactly what their guests want - the service was exemplary and the non-tipping policy ( money can be left in the box at reception for sharing out between the staff equally) makes for a more comfortable environment.
We really enjoyed our stay, and thought the Haveli was extremely good value for money. This was by far the cheapest hotel we stayed in, but one of our favourites. Highly recommended !
